Tip Time Tuesday

You asked and Christine delivered…

Last week we featured an example of a Pocket Page Layout using Kiwi Lane Designer Templates and a few of you asked to see more Pocket Page Layouts so guess what design team member Christine Meyer decided to do for you today… That’s right, just what you asked for.  ENJOY!!!

Spring is starting to peek out

Hi Kiwi Lane fans!  Spring is starting to peek out in Illinois and I am ready to get out some bright and vibrant colors in my scrapping!  For my project today I am sharing a pocket style spread using We R memory Keepers & my Designer Templates to showcase my oldest son’s birthday.  Now I will be honest, in the past I haven’t done a lot of pocket scrapbooking. Once my fourth child came into the picture, it started becoming a bigger part of my routine.  I especially like it for projects like this where you have lots and lots of pictures!

I have to decorate more

I take way too many pictures at birthday parties and this is the perfect solution for me!  BUT I am still a traditional scrapper at heart, which means I can’t just slide my photos in along with some pocket pieces and call it good.  I HAVE to decorate more!  This is where my Kiwi Lane templates help make the job simple.

If you have lots of templates things could get out of control!  My tip would be: pull out one or two accessory sets and one border set and limit yourself to that.  Save yourself from getting overwhelmed with options!

I used the border set to add a little extra to some of the bigger pockets (4 X 6) and the accessory sets to decorate all over the place!

Outline your accents/accessories with a fine tip marker

And here’s another tip for you: if you don’t like to ink up your pieces after cutting them out or they have sharp edges (like a star) that are difficult to ink – outline them with a fine tip marker instead.  I use this technique all the time and it works fabulously to make things punch!  And if you make a little mistake along the way you can simply cover it up with a sticker or other embellishment.
