Adventure Awaits with Kim

Maja Design, Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey everyone Kim here. Today I'm sharing another layout for March. I created it using the Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs and lots of other goodies.

Here is my layout:


One of the papers has all these masculine images on them. I cut a couple out and paired them with another sheet of paper. I kept the layout pretty simple, a little mixed media and minimal embellishments. However, I really like how it turned out.

  I used items from the main kit, the bonus chipboard kit as well as the mixed media kit. I pulled in a couple of things from my stash to add as well. I think the texture is what makes this layout.

Here are some close ups:


The music note flower is from my stash. I thing the kraft color keeps it masculine. I used a woodgrain stencil and modeling paste for texture.  I added some random stamping with a crackle stamp. I finished it off some splatters with the Lindy's mist from the mixed media kit.


The title chippie was initially white, I colored it with the brown chalk ink from the main kit. If you do this, make sure you give it a blast with your heat tool to dry the ink (it will smudge).


I added some stenciling, stamping and splatters to the opposite side of my layout to balance it out. Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a masculine layout.

 Here are the kits I used for this layout:


That's all I have for today, thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone !

Here is another layout that I made with January kit Kisses and Snowflakes.  I had so much fun with this layout ! I decided to use everything that had Turquoise on it from the Main kit and Add-ons to create this layout.  I used the tags, the die-cuts, the Ephemeras and glued them here and there on the background.  I put some Glitter Snow Paste and the Butterfly Stamps.

I Met Sam

7 Dots, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Happy St. Patrick's Day from Laurie! I have never met any leprechauns, but I have met a hobbit (Sean Astin, aka Sam from The Lord of the Rings). That's the theme of today's scrapbook layout featuring the Kisses and Snowflakes kit.


I liked how the pink background in the photo matched so well with some of the pink in the 7 Dots Northern Lights collection, so that's primarily the papers and embellishments that I used on this. 


But I did add in some of the Prima Zella Teal ephemeraScrapberry's Exquisite Embellishments Create WonderPrima Sunrise Sunset Paper Petals Silver Blue flowersUS Art Quest Prills in Plum Crazy, and Dovecraft Adhesive Gems Perfectly Pink. Then I splattered a little bit of the Shimmerz Vibez Grape Escape. I LOVE that color.


I had a lot of fun creating the cluster of embellishments underneath the photo. It gives the layout a lot of texture and dimension. But it does take forever to strategically lay everything out and make it look like all these embellishments just effortlessly fell there or something!


The next season's kits are in the works (the design team has gotten to see sneak peeks of the papers already), but in the meantime, you can still get your own Kisses and Snowflakes kit, so head on over to the store today!
