Kiwi Lane Blog Hop

I love blog hops and am excited to be joining a group of Kiwi Lane Fans in one today full of scrapbook inspiration with ideas to use their designer templates! 

 I am the last stop on the blog today so if you have just started here you should head back to Kiwi Lane and do the whole thing!  There is a great big giveaway of a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi store for commenting on the blogs and I have a giveaway too!  More details on mine after the layout!


I love Doodlebug Design's "Sweethearts" Collection and knew I wanted to play with it for this.  I created my layout using a couple different template sets: The Chevron Border set and the Sweetheart Accessory Set.  The Chevron border set is pretty much my favorite.  All I did was use it to cut out three borders and then cut them apart.  I reassembled them with the three colors in various places.  It is a super easy technique that really packs a punch.  

As a Thank You to all of you for stopping by today I am doing a giveaway of two separate prizes!  One for a follower here on my blog and one for being a fan on my facebook page!
-If you become a follower here on my blog and leave me a comment telling me you did so - I will enter you into a drawing for the Paradise Accessory Set and some Bakers Twine.
-If you become a fan on my facebook page and leave a comment on the wall there - I will enter you into a drawing for the Sweetheart Accessory Set.
I will announce the winners on Monday!

Now, head on back to Kiwi Lane and make sure to leave a comment and get yourself entered for the big prize!

You may have just made me love chevrons. I have not liked them since they came out, and now you've gone and done this! Shame on you! lol I'll be sending my friend Julie a link to this. She loves chevrons already. It's a good thing she'll be looking at it through the computer so she doesn't get your paper wet drooling on it! lol

One of my favorite paper techniques is to paper piece. Your chevrons are perfect for this. Thank you for this idea. It is a beautiful layout. I love the white background.
