Without further ado, here is the scrapbook page I made using my Scallop and Bracket templates.  I started by laying out my templates and a few key elements I knew I wanted to use:


After a little ink and a beautiful picture by my friend Stephanie, at Stephanie Watkins Photography, and here is the final product.


Recipe:
Kiwi Lane Design Templates: Scallop 2A and Brackets 2
Ink: Stampin' Up 2013-2015 In Colors
Washi: Freckled Fawn
Wood Veneers and Enamel Dots: Studio Calico
Paper: Up & Up (Studio Calico), Vellum (Studio Calico), Pink/Yellow (Echo Park)
Sugar Picks: Jillibean Soup


If you want more information on the technique I used to create the scallops on the bottom, be sure you check back on the Kiwi Lane blog on June 18th for my Tip Time Tuesday.  ;-)

Now, about that prize I promised.  I will pick one random comment left by 11:59 MST on Sunday, June 9th to win a set of Kiwi Lane Templates.  You must be a blog follower to win.

Cheers!
Kristy
