Today, I created a fall themed page with Simple Stories lines that are not specifically fall related. I also got to play with some Kiwi Lane products, making this a double whammy post today!
Here's a little peek at my process.
First, I like to start with my main elements. I chose fall colored paper from Smarty Pants and Say Cheese, die cut some pumpkins, and chose two Kiwi Lane templates.
Next, I like to push the pieces around a little bit to figure out placement. This gives me a good idea about what size my photos should be. You can see at this point that I've used the Kiwi Lane templates by tracing them onto the paper and then cutting them out. So simple!
And here is my finished page! I ended up changing the placement of the page and I trimmed down the borders. I layered two here by using the negative side of the paper after the first was cut. I also replaced my initial bracket shape with one a little smaller.
By using the basic prints from these two Simple Stories lines, I was able to create a theme that wasn't there before! I love how it came out and I got even more out of my scrapbook products.
I hope this inspires you to look a little harder to make your paper and accessories your own twist! And a big thank you to Kiwi Lane for letting me try their templates!
