Anyone out there using Kiwi lane products? How do you like them? Are you able to put your own creative spin while using the templates? I'm kind of tempted to invest in a few pieces, but want your opinion first.

I really like them. I have a couple of blog posts where I used them:

I like mixing them up with my pages and they are a great way to use up some DSP!!!!

I have a quite a collection of them. They are made of a durable plastic but still see through enough that you can line up a picture or a spot on patterned paper.

For me they opened up more creativity, in that planning the page with them also helped with size and scale for embellishments. I sometimes use one of theirs as a place holder for size or shape but then cut something else on my cricut. I am not wasting paper trying to figure things out.

Their method also has helped me with mixing and matching patterns better as well.

The photo temps have been a good buy for me. My trick for them is to layout them out (they are all marked with the size) then use my gypsy/ cricut to cut the mats all at once saves me time and helps my issues around cutting.

I have had mine for two years now and there are some layout in my gallery if your interested.

Jill, that sounds like a good idea. May have to try them.

I LOVE Kiwi Lane. I ordered thier book and templets and use them all the time. It has really helped me! I was in a slump thinking all my pages looked the same, and then I discovered Kiwi Lane. I now put pattern paper together I would have never done before. I recommended it to several ladies and our monthly crop and they ordered and love Kiwi Lane now too.

I don't have any of the templates but have viewed many of their videos. Their techniques have helped me be more creative using patterned paper. I have several similar templates I have played with and plan to order from Kiwi Lane.

I'm gonna look into this. I feel like I do the same few layouts over and over.

Have them and love them. I even recreated them on my pazzles so when I'm feeling lazy I can cut them with the electric cutter. I have some in my gallery as well
