MMDesi9ns Presents : Kiwi Lane Designs October Blog Hop!!!


                                        Hello everyone!!! 
 If you came from Jennifer Budge's page then you are in the right place,  Hi!!! Meka here of MMDesi9ns -The Purple Scrapper.  This week I will be showcasing my work here using  Kiwi Lane Designs Templates.

Breast Cancer Accordion Card


For the first project we were asked to make a card honoring World
Card Making Day. So I made a Accordion Card for the Breast
Cancer Awareness.
I started with a 6" x 12" piece of cardstock. This will produce a folded card that measures 6" x 3". Fold the cardstock in half and crease the seam with a bone folder or creasing tool. Fold the top flap backwards on itself, lining up the edge with the spine of the previous fold. Flip the card and repeat for the other side. Crease all the folds. You should now have folds of cardstock that forms the basis of your accordion card.
I used the breast cancer Mambi sheets to help me make this beautiful card. I used  the Kiwi Lane Designs... Thoughtful 1b on the outside and 2b in the inside of the card. I also had to trace
 and cut each template to fit the card. I really enjoyed using these  templates for this project.  I will also continue to use the Kiwi Lane Designs Templates for future use. Hope you enjoy my card.

12x12 two page layout using Kiwi Lane Design Templates

I used all the Kiwi Lane Designs Templates for my second project
here I made a 12x12 two page layout. Halloween 1-4 templates were used on both sheets of cardstock. I also used stickles on the pumpkins and the ghost I will be purchasing these kiwi lane designs in the future to help me make beautiful projects .You also have to trace and cut the templates to fit on your page. These templates were so much fun to use and very affective when you are doing a 2-page layout.

That is by far the prettiest Breast Cancer card I have ever seen. It must have taken you hours! Or days! It would take me months!!
As a 13 yr survivor of breast cancer it always makes me smile when I see support for all the the brave women.
I love the hallowen LO too! I am going to have to get more kiwi templates for sure!
