Tip Time Tuesday Header

We are back with more We R memory keepers

So glad to be doing another post featuring We R memory keepers.  You are in store today because the lovely and talented Arin Flynn has such a fun Tip Time Tuesday for you.  Sit back and enjoy.

I have a confession

Arin FlynnArin here, and I have a confession to make. . . I can craft up a storm when I am upcycling jars, making wreaths or dreaming up home decor, but designing scrapbook pages comes with a vast amount of creative stretching. I envy those where layout making comes easy. Thankfully Kiwi Lane Designs saves the day and takes a lot of my crafty guess work out and brings in a fun creative element into this mix like I tapped into with this fun layout I made combining our lucky score of We R Memory Keepers products!

Arin's TTT March 2014Here is how I did it

Templates Used: Tiny Sweetheart 4T, Tiny Floral 2T, Chevrons 1A and 2A, Large Brackets 1, Strip Set ½ Inch

Building Layout: Using 12×12 cardstock I began to build my layout before full execution took effect.  Once I had all my pieces in place, I snapped a photo for future reference once I started pulling off the Kiwi Lane templates to trace, cut and ink.

Making Candle Base Embellishments:  Using KLD Strip Set ½ inch, I cut them in half and arranged them in a random height order and attached with Xyron Mega Runner and layered the KLD Large Brackets 1 over them. I then hot glued candles along the length of each strip. Arins TTT March 2014

Well there you have it, a super easy birthday layout using We R Memory Keepers paper/embellishment cards and Kiwi Lane Designer templates! Thank You again Arin for such a fun layout.  I never would have put candles on a layout but now just might need to try.
