Pin It
Welcome to the Kiwi Lane August Blog Hop

Blog Hop Header

 

I am so excited to be a designer in the Kiwi Lane Blog hop this month. You all know I love their designer templates and use them on my projects all the time!
The featured sets for August are Tiny Celebrate and Playtime. How fun!!
 
You should have hopped on over from Gail's blog. If you did you are right on track. But if you'd like to start at the beginning of this fabulous blog hop please head on over to Kiwi Lane's Blog.


This blog hop will run through 11:59 PM MST on Sunday August 24th  so you have all weekend to check out these spectacular projects and products!!


One Lucky random winner from ONE of the participating blogs (including the Kiwi Lane blog), will be given a $25 gift certificate to the Kiwi Lane Shop, for leaving a comment and will be announced on the Kiwi Lane blog Monday. So be sure to leave a comment on each of these amazing blogs!! You will get one entry for every comment you leave!! Wohoo!
Now for my fun project!! I had so much fun creating this cute gift bag with matching tag. I can't wait for the next Birthday so I can give it away!!
 
 
I used the Celebrate Templates on my project, along with several other fabulous Kiwi Lane Templates. I just love the way this gift bag came together and hope you do too. Kiwi Lane really makes it so easy to create such amazing projects.
 
I love that I created a whimsical scene with the templates. Using My Mind's Eye Paper made it really easy to match all my elements together too.
 
 
This gift bag is complete with a matching gift tag. Perfect!
 

These pinwheels are my favorite part of the bag. And with the Kiwi Lane template they were super easy to create. I see many more pinwheels in my future!!
