Kiwi Lane Designs Blog Hop


Aloha my lovely blog hoppers and welcome to the Kiwi Lane Designs Blog Hop! You should have arrived here via Tammy Smith's Blog. If not head on back to the Kiwi Lane Blog and start from the beginning. Kiwi Lane has some very fun and unique designer templates to work with. They make creating gifts, cards, and layouts a breeze!

I was sent the journey accessory set to work with which is a great collection for vacations and all things that GO! My daughters and I are heading back to the mainland in a few weeks to visit with family so I decided to use the templates to make a countdown for my girls to keep track of how much longer till we leave.



For my next project I really wanted to create a mini album but was at a bit of a loss on where to start.  After looking through the templates for what seemed liked forever I noticed that the suitcase sort of looked like a camera. So I totally decided to just go for it.


I did end up trimming the feet off the suitcase because it gave it more of the look that I was going for. 





Thank you for stopping by and checking out my little corner of the blog world. From here you should be heading over to Deborah Johnson's blog to see the goodness that she created. Make sure and leave a comment on each stop of the blog hop so that you can be entered to win the fun prize package from Simple Stories. (Note: Only US & Canadian residents are available to win the pictured prize package. If an international resident is chosen they will be given a $25 gift code to the Kiwi Lane shop) The winner will be announced on the Kiwi Lane Blog on September 12th.

  1. I really like that you used the templates in other ways. The suitcase looks great as a camera and a wonderful mini album. Also, the count down for your daughters is such a good idea. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  8. Clever idea using the suitcase as a camera. The first time I saw this template I thought of cutting the wheels off and making a tabbed recipe card but never thought of a camera!!! Love the mini album.
