Today I’m sharing some fun Punch Art Pals for your spring pages. 

Creative Life Scrapbooking Blog Hop - Lisa's Workshop

For the project I created for this Blog Hop I used products from 3 of my favorite companies; Creative Memories, Fun Stampers Journey and Kiwi Lane.  Most of the papers I used are from CM’s Woodland Whimsy Girl Collection.

Kiwi Lane Templates
Kiwi Lane Designs (KLD) has a scrapbooking system that is simple, inspirational, and fun called Play-to-Create.

I use this system and Kiwi Lane Designer Templates often to plan out my pages, including the one shown below.  You are able to see through the templates so I was able to choose templates and place them so they cover up the deer design on the paper – it’s cute but I didn’t want it to show in this layout.  Once I was satisfied with the layout I traced these shapes on to my paper, cut them out and then inked the edges before assembling.
You can learn more about the “Play-to-Create” system here.

I used KLD Designer Templates from the following sets:
Tiny Brackets, Scallops, Large Bracket, Photo Mats and Mini Photo Set.

Here is the finished layout!
