Scrapbooking is a passion that all three of us have shared for a long time. It is something that has brought us together on countless occasions and strengthened our family bond. The idea for Kiwi Lane started in 2008 while we were scrapbooking together. We were complaining to each other that most of the samples that we found in magazines and online were for one-picture, one-page layouts and depended heavily on expensive embellishments to accomplish their look. It was this frustration that led us to develop a new style of scrapbooking that provided endless inspiration and simplified the scrapbooking process. We called this technique “Framing,” and it changed the way that we scrapbooked, allowing us to add as many pictures as we wanted and end up with a beautiful, balanced, professional layout every time.
Whether for Father’s Day, Christmas, or for no reason at all, gift cards make special days a whole lot easier. Personalize a card by getting one from a specific store you know your loved one shops at, or choose a card that lets them get whatever they want, wherever. Make your gift even more special by giving it in a custom gift card bag, wallet or pocket—the lucky recipient will value the gift inside, plus all of the hard work and creativity that went into making their package.
Break out the craft supplies and gather around for some springtime fun for the whole family! Kiwi Lane Designs shows you how to sew happy easter chicks using felt, cotton, wire, and embroidery floss or baker's twine. Learn what patterns to use to trace out the chick's body, how to stitch together the pieces, when to stuff it with cotton, and how to attach wings, eyes, and legs.
