I have to say I’ve had a pretty good scrappy week. First I won a Liebster Award and then I find out I won one of the prizes on the Kiwi Lane Designs blog hop. I had always wanted to try these, but was intimidated since I’m not always the greatest with multiple colors and patterns. Winning a set obviously gives me the perfect way to try them!
Gail at GLOworm Designs had a drawing during the hop for a set of the bracket templates. The first winner didn’t respond, but that was good for me 🙂
Gail mailed quickly, and well packaged in-case you ever need to do business with her. Also, be sure to check out her blog as she has some really cool things going on there, and great tutorials. She was actually one of the blogs I nominated for a Liebster Award when it was my turn.
So as a kid with a new toy, I had to try them out right away. I was working on my son’s seven month pictures, and since we did 8×10’s for the months it didn’t leave a lot of room for add ons. I decided to use them for journalling, and I have to say I’m very pleased with how they came out.
If I had to do it again I would have put the journalling on the left side of the vertical picture, but so be it. If you can tell there is matching green glitter around the outside of each bracket. This is how I add glitter without it being girly…I get that question a lot.
I can also see brackets one and two being very useful with cards. I think they’d make a great background on top of the card form.
That leaves me with a question…Do you use Kiwi Lane templates, and how? I guess that’s really two questions 🙂
Stay tuned to see what I’m working on next.
