Winter at Temple Square

Light Bulbs

gail_owensHello, Hello!  

I’m so excited to show you a layout I made using Kiwi Lane’s newest paper kit “Merry and Bright.”  And can I tell you how much fun I had working with this kit?!  I know when you look at the photos for some of the projects made from the kit, it looks a little orange-ish. But when I had the paper kit in my hands, I was happy to see that the red is a rich, beautiful Christmas red. And the color combination in the kit are perfect for anything Christmas, holiday or winter related!

Here’s the layout I made using my Kiwi Lane Merry and Bright paper kit:

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year I totally forgot to take a “before” photo with my page framed and ready to go… Sorry! Next time, for sure!

The photos on this layout were take a few years ago when my family and I visited Temple Square in Salt Lake City to see the lights. It was a beautiful night and perfect for wandering around enjoying the displays. If you’ve never been, and you’re a fan of holiday lights, you should totally go! It’s quite the sight!!

Soooo…..Did you see the cute little details on the Tiny Traditions mitten and light bulb shapes?

Here are the mittens:Mittens

I made the cuffs look furry using double sided tape and tinsel glitter.  Fun effect, yeah? You can still see just a hint of the pattern on the paper (it’s gray polka dots on a white background) under the translucent glitter. Well, you can see it in person. Not so much in photos.

And here is one of the light bulbs:Tiny Traditions Light BulbI used silver washi tape to cover the end and tied some white twine around it to finish it off. I also ended up fussy cutting some of the circles out of the snowflake paper to make my grouping look more complete.

The title area features more light bulbs and looks like this close up:Light Bulbs

Kiwi Lane Paper Kits

I know I’ve mentioned this in previous posts about the Kiwi Lane paper kits, but I’m going to have to do it again. It bears repeating. The printed elements paper is fantastic! I love that it has a few titles, sentiments, journaling spots and some smaller areas of various patterns that you can use to add to your layers. It’s basically like they’ve combined a title pack, journaling pack and 3 extra sheets of paper (you know, those sheets that you only need a little bit of but you have to buy the whole sheet to get?) all in one handy printed piece of awesomeness! I’m telling you- it’s GENIUS!!
