Went to a sb convention here in Cincy and found an interesting product by Kiwi lane designs. The sample pages were beautiful and on one hand the idea seemed easy and fun ,on the other hand , haven't we done that and been there with similar products many years ago.? It seems like you could do similar pages with any of the cutting machines though I'm not sure. I'm very tempted to order some but would love to know if anyone has tried them and what did you think? Sorry if this has been discussed but I'm just getting back into Sbing again.

I haven't used it personally (doesn't really appeal to me) but I've heard from others--it's templates that you use to cut pp into shapes that are then used to frame or embellish LOs. Lots of layers are typical, with varying profiles so you see the layers of pp.

Their site is www.kiwilane.com. They have a video that explains their product and process. I personally love mine. I use them mostly when I'm scrapping outside of my home. I don't have to pack a machine this way. I also like that I can see more easily what my finished page will look like.

Here's the page that has a video.

Framing Video

To be honest, the product doesn't appeal to me, although I have to agree that some of the pages were very nicely done. I have a die cutter and it would be very easy for me to design and cut something similar. Also, I don't like to cut by hand if I don't have to. I'm not very keen on all of those wavy cuts. To me it's very reminiscent of the old Creative Memories days, which is not a bad thing, but for now I'm not interested.

If it's the templates, that certainly isn't new. It's been done many times before. I thought maybe there was some new "Framing" concept we hadn't seen before.

I was swayed to buy some two years ago at GASC. Once home, though, I did not think them "me" and never used them. I sold them to a Pea, through a post here, and I've never looked back. I lost money on the deal of course, but felt like it was better than them sitting here, making me feel bad for buying them.

I agree their albums are very nice when displayed and viewed at events. But, once home, the spell was broken and I knew my pages didn't go together like that....

I think I may get the photo sets. Of course I could make my own, but I like to support small business and I think these are cool. I know it's been done before, but I'd like to see them stick around. This could be just the thing to bring on new scrappers, and that's what we were talking about on another thread. I wouldn't use the other templates, but I think it's a great concept for many people.

I came across their website completely by accident about a year ago. I looked at all the layouts and thought they were just beautiful.

I did exactly what Janet explained above with my exacto knife to just try it. After I got the layout done, I realized that it just wasn't my style. I still think it's very pretty, but just not for me. I didn't redo the layout, but didn't have any desire to do it on another layout.

I am normally an impluse buyer, but for some reason I held off on these. So glad that I tried it on my own before buying a lot of templates and realizing after the fact that it wasn't for me.

I think their layouts and cards are beautiful. I wouldn't want all of my layouts to look like that, but it was fun to try. I cut my own versions. I did buy some supplies from them at a show just to help keep them in business.

Yes, I've seen their examples on their site as well as their video. My thought was that I could do some similar things with an electronic cutter and have it be a lot less work. They do have some lovely pages, but I design my own layouts and don't need templates to help me.

never heard of it until this thread. i checked out their website at the link posted above. i think it would be fun to scrap like that sometimes just to change things up a bit. but i wouldn't want all my layouts looking like that. i have the bo bunny flex ruler that i could get similar results with i suppose.

While I don't love the wavy lines on every page, the overall style suits my style very much: the coordinating patterned papers, the layering, using multiple photos and photo matting. I know that's not the "going trends" but, I've found that when I look back on my albums, those are the pages I enjoy most.

I'm thinking that I could emulate this style, but perhaps with my stash of border punches as the layers instead of waves and curves all the time.

Going to try this on a page tonight!

May ordera few templates, to have on hand, though.

TFS!

I had the same thought. I'm not sure I would use the other shapes but the photo ones would help me. I often want to crop several pictures the same size without cutting of important parts of a picture or see how many I can squeeze on a page.

I pretty much have the entire line of these now. I started out seeing it on the web, thinking I could replicate it and make my own with acrylic and my purple cows freestyle cutter....and I made a few...but still it wasn't quite as well done as the Kiwi Lane ones. Then I went to my Cricut and cut some designs in acrylic...still not quite. So when they came to the convention this spring, I bought the card set of templates and the 8x8 mini set. That night at the expo crop I completed 12 - 8x8 layouts to finally finish the mini album for my mother in law that I had been working on for 3 years. I was sold.

Also I am a sketcher. I sketch everything before I make it. I also am anal about straightness. So I actually have made straight templates similar to what Kiwi Lane sells to help me line up things on my pages properly - so in a way I have been doing the template thing on my own since my very first layout back in 2005.

I know people think just pulling out a cutter is quicker, but I find it is not. All you do is trace and cut...no loading mats, no searching for designs on carts or the web...you can use all sorts of scraps. The Kiwi Lane system has totally revitalized my scrapbooking. Since buying the system (I have the 12x12 and many accessory sets now - thanks to a crafter on youtube that was selling hers) I have made more layouts this year than I have in the past two years. Just last night, I made 6 cards in a little over an hour.

I have every tool under the sun..tons of embellies, punches etc...I always have the latest and the greatest, but these simple templates are what have been making me scrap. I am going to attempt my own version of project life next year, and I am using these templates to make it fast and easy.

Oh and another thing...going to crops...packing is so much easier now. I just pack my templates (I put them in a cutlery tray type organizer when I am crafting), some ink, some daubers, a pencil, and my paper (letter stickers or stamps as well). I save the embellishing with 3D items for when I get home. No more dragging tons of stuff with me. I love how much lighter I can pack now.

Here's a few pages I made with the templates -

You don't have to have a Paypal account to use Paypal, just a credit/debit card.
Or is there another reason you don't use Paypal, just curious

I saw these at GASC a couple of years ago and I love the results but I don't think I'd want so many layouts looking the same way.

I have a lot of the sets. What I like about them is it allows me to use a ton of different patterns at once and still have the papers look good together. I don't use them all the time, mostly if I have pre-printed photos and I am not inspired on my own to come up with a layout. I do use the photo templates all the time. Even when I'm assembling Scrapbook Generation kits and don't have photos on hand, I just use the templates to lay out the papers where they go and come back later with my photos.

I do the same thing as Bing a Ling. The photo templates (I have all the sizes) work absolutely GREAT with the Scrapbook Generation pages. You can lay them out and get your layout done and apply photos later. I have a few of the other templates, but haven't tried making a layout with them yet. For some reason, I can't seem to "get" how to lay it all out and frame my page. I am glad I didn't invest in the whole template line! I also think they are VERY pricey and only would buy with a sale.

Last time I used my debit card like this my account was "compromised" and I ended up needing to have my cards reissued it was a real pain. I am not sure if it was the site or PayPal but honestly I don't like the product enough to bother with it. It is a neat idea but I'm not dying for it.

They do have sales periodically...generally 20 percent off. I think they are worth every penny...at least for me. My Kiwi Lane templates teamed up with my Selphy I am getting layouts done finally.

So, I've been on a scrappy tear since Wednesday night. Yay! I gave the Kiwi Lane template system a go. I made a few templates out of cheap cardstock and played a bit.

I'm really liking the results. I love that my beautiful paper is the highlight of the pages. I'm embellishment, cluster, grouping (which is so popular right now) challenged, so the idea of using the papers as embellishments - I am loving. Plus, I am really using a lot of paper from my stash, which is good, since I could repopulate a forest with my paper!

I only made a few templates, so I'm not getting the full effect of being able to preplan my page exactly, which I think would make everything so much easier. I am even sort of enjoying the manual cutting...I find it oddly relaxing! I have used my Cricut and Slice for some shapes, which are very easily incorporated.

I think I'm going to take the plunge and order these. Now, I just have to figure out what templates for my initial order!

If there's interest, I can post pics of my layouts (even though I have never uploaded to my gallery, I've just never taken the time).

I discovered these last year on a youtube video and really liked them. Yes they are just templates and you can get similar effects using other tools and die cut machines. But the beauty of the templates is you can design your entire layout before you cut anything. (this is so nice for a very visual person like me) Which you can not do when you are cutting things one by one using other tools.

I do not use this style for every layout I do, but it is perfect for when I want to create quickly and am not super inspired by my photos - or when I am in love with a line of paper and want a lot of them to show. These are great for the multi photo layouts of events like pumpkin patch, christmas morning etc. My children seem to gravitate to the pages I make using the templates - not sure why.

I will try to post a few of the pages I have made using these later.

When I saw these I remembered the old Border Buddies- who here remembers them? I think they were from about 1998. Since I never purge I still have mine in a box somewhere.

I like the idea of their templates to set up the pages, but the idea of tracing designs and cutting out by hand also takes me back to the late 1990's. I have tons of those plastic templates for tracing shapes like stars, hearts etc. Those go back to 1996, including CM.

That's why I don't purge. Everything old becomes new again. Actually the Coluzzle had templates for borders and shapes too- which eliminates the hand cutting (even though I have an electronic cutter now and no longer use them much).

But....if it is system that helps get pages done and you like that style, it looks like it would work for you.

@DawnMcD - I would love to see some layouts you have created using your templates.

@Sophikins - cutting by hand is faster than pulling out a die cutter or a punch. I've clocked myself.

I do feel like I've gone back in scrappy time using these, but sometimes simple is best. I even pulled out my old Pages by Design templates (anyone remember those?) to use in conjunction with my Kiwi Lane system. Works perfectly together.

I know this isn't for everyone, but I do agree with Slyn11, it is much faster to cut these out than to search and cut a template out on a die cut machine. I have the cameo and it takes me forever to find what I want. I was looking at Kiwi again last night and checking out the gallery. I have to say, even though it's considered "old fashioned", the layouts really are eye catching. I love how they pair their PP together. I can't seem to do the same thing! I also love how they know exactly what PP needs to go with what template! I also struggle with that! Guess I should just try throwing it together and see what comes up!

I've really been playing with this approach in the last week and I can't remember the last time I got so many layouts done in a week's time without going away to do it. I'm loving it. I love my patterned paper and I'm using it beautifully. I am never successful at clustering and grouping embellishments, so letting my paper be the embellishment suits me well. I know the approach may be "old school", but I am really liking the results. I guess I'm in the minority here, as I don't scrap in the "current" styles anyway; I just don't get the one photo with layers of paper under it with embelly clusters from one corner to the other. I admire those who can do this, I'm just not capable of it.Now, I'm not agonizing over photo placement or embellishment gathering. I am still using my embellishments, but only to accentuate the paper that is already there.

I also agree that the hand cutting is quick and I always did a lot of inking of my edges anyway, so you don't have to be so exact in your cutting when you ink.

I totally get that this style isn't for everyone, but it has really helped me get a lot scrapped, while highlighting my pretty papers.

I can see using a set of the templates for an entire album so that it had a nice sense of cohesion...so if you were doing a wedding album or a baby album or from a Disney trip, for instance. Just flip them around and alternate the patterned papers to get a different look...it would really pull that together, I think.

Now they need to make these in a 4x6 and 3x4 size and jump on the Project Life bandwagon.

I am attempting Project life for the first time and I am using the templates. I don't plan on using divided page protectors (not fond of the look) but I can see how the templates would work well with them. Kiwi Lane has a cardmaking set of templates that would come really in handy for those pockets.

And Meridon - I bought the mini album set of templates (8" specifically to finish an album for my mother in law's birthday party. I had been working on the album for almost 3 years, with the templates I finished the last dozen pages in a night! And it did create a nice cohesive look like you said.

I dug my templates out this past week and decided to give them more of a try. I think it will be fun and Lord knows, I need to have some fun right now! Anyway, I they are having a sale right now on the Holiday Bundle for 25% off, so I ordered it. I've been wanting it for a while anyway. I have several other tiny accessories I would like, but I'll hold off forthe next sale. Only $3 to ship!

I ordered tha holiday bundle and a set of 12" borders, as well. I can't wait for them to come, as I've been hodge-podging it with some temporary templates I cut from cardstock, so see if I was going to like the approach and results. I wish I could just plop down the $500 to buy everything at once, but alas, I'm not independently wealthy.

Oh good! I almost ordered another 12" border too, but I have the scallops, Madison Avenue and Cascade. I really like the Cascade as you can intertwine them for a really cool effect! I wish I would have ordered at least one more thing, but I know I will be happy with what I have coming. They ship pretty fast too!

Anyone know when the next sale might be???

I had a system several years ago somewhat like this one that you could use to design a page with and use the templates to cut out everything with. I had everything with it and wound up giving it to my sister-in-law to use because I found it just too much! It had zippered pockets to hold the shapes in a binder but found it too cumbersome. I much prefer my silhouette (ancient one that it is) over templates. That's just me and the way I scrap!


I'm an old pea with a forgetful memory (can't remember old login info)....please cut me some slack LOL!!!

I had not heard of Kiwi Lane until this post, I have been on there website and youtube looking at everything I can find. the l/o are beautiful. When I first started scrap booking I used to use templates, and I love the look. But like many I'm not sure that I would use them for every layout, and where to you put journaling? Do you scrap every picture?
I would love to see some more l/o using Kiwi Lane!

Slyn11 posted some layouts above. If you go to Kiwi Lane, there is a huge gallery full of layouts both with and without pics. I think as far as journaling, that would totally be up to you as to where on the page you would want to include it. You simply would leave that area free of a template or pic and journal! Also, if you look at all the templates, there are ideas posted under each one of how that particular template was used.

Ideas for using the template on Project Life or that style of scrapping. I made these with my templates. They are 4x6 cards.



Example of a 2 pages spread with spaces for journaling.
