Christina SteelSchool Is Back In Session

Hi guys, Christina here. I had to share this layout since I LOVE how it turned out and guess what? I used two of the three September 2017 Customer Special Sets when creating it. This months Customer Specials are: Paisley Place, Cascade Trails & Autumn which are all ON SALE all month long either thru your Kiwi Lane Instructor or online at Don’t have an instructor yet and want to see if there’s one in your area? E-mail us at and we’d love to help you find one!

Designer Templates Used:

Abbie Road (1B)

Cascade Trails (3A, 3B)

Autumn (1, 5, 6)

Change Things Up

When I end up with a long title I like to use different types, sizes & colors of letters to break it up a bit. See how nicely using these different letters really made my layouts title POP!

Don’t Forget to Journal

If I don’t plan a spot to journal it doesn’t happen! I get bored with just chunks of journaling, I like to do journaling strips instead! But then I even get bored with those… So I cut my strips along the same Kiwi border I used on my layout:


I dusted off my old Deco-Edged scissors for his tummy. Please tell me I’m not the only one who held on to those…

​This layout was just plain FUN to make!!!

THANKS for looking!

    I totally still have my scissors and use them often!!! So glad I kept them!!! I’ve been tempted once or twice to use one to cut my long borders with just to see the effect….

    I love the belly of the owl, great idea to bring the scissors out of retirement.
