When You Love and Laugh Card

The fall kits are coming! The fall kits are coming!

Laurie here, and I am so excited about the fall kits, but I still have a project to share with you using my Garden Sunkissed kit


While cutting all of the paper flowers for this card, I was reminded of the paper garden on the walls of Mrs. Threadgoode's room in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. There's no real good quote from the movie about it, but I was just reminded of that scene in the movie and the movie itself. I love that movie.


I made this card to send to my aunt, so I wrote on the inside of the card BEFORE I adhered everything to the back. It made writing so much easier. Ha ha! I hope my aunt likes it. Of course, the card was too big to fit into a standard envelope. I should have thought about that before designing it, but oh well. It was totally worth it!


I used the Kaisercraft butterfly stamp and the Lemoncraft paperribbon, and ephemera cards. From my own stash I used a Stampin' Up stamp pad and some gem embellishments.


I also used my Martha Stewart scoring board to help me fold the paper in straight lines and create the gate-fold card opening.

Thanks for looking and have a beautiful day!

Hello ISBG fans!

Today it´s Noilone here with you and I have made a layout for you with the Sunkissed Kit
I like to make layouts.  It is fun to work with 12 x 12 papers.
Sometimes you can use a lot of papers and decorations and sometimes just less is more.


For this layout I used a shape I made on the background papers behind the photo.
Ohh and can you see who I'm standing beside? :-)

I also took some pieces of the same paper and tore them apart.


I tore apart the white card stock and inked them with green distress ink,
and took a piece of the green paper from the kit and glued it on the back.


Same here in this corner.  Ohh I love this flower.  Isn't it cute?


Here is a close up on the paper behind the photo.  And those cute butterflies... There are so many papers in the kit that are useful in many different ways.


Here I used 2 of the green flowers and one white, both from the kit. 
Then I cut out a butterfly and glued it over the flowers.

You can also see the paper I tore apart and stuck between some layers of the background paper.

Most of the time when I make layouts I like to have a few layers of paper because
it gives more dimension to the layout.

Thats all for me today with the Sunkissed Kit.  Fall layouts coming soon!


Christmas Tags

Hi ISBG Fans!  Summer is gone, but fortunately the Summer Fairy Garden Kit is still available at the International Scrapbook Garden.  I still love the pinks, greens and pale blues of this kit!  So I decided to make some festive Christmas tags.  You can never start too soon, right?!?


The two left tags are my two Christmas tags, and don't you love the summery watermelon?  See how the colors can be seasonless? The papers, tiny roses, ribbon and stamp are all from the kit.  Along with that luscious watermelon and the paint for the chipboard.

First let me show you the angel tag:


And a little close up:


Next up is St. Nicholas, Father Christmas or Santa Claus.  Did you know that December 6th is St. Nicholas Day?  In many countries it is traditional to leave your shoes out and St. Nicholas fills them with candy or other treats!


I thought Santa could use a little shabby, retro, steam punk look!  All on that luscious green paper and with the lovely white ribbon bow.  What an amazing kit!


So if you were undecided on the Summer Fairy Garden:  Picnic in the Garden kit.  Go for it!  If you have a little time and a few holiday embellishments you can create lots of beautiful cards and tags with a green and pink theme that will add a feminine touch to your holiday giving!
