Hello there! I'm Vivian Lake and it's new kit time here at The International Scrapbook Garden!!!!! The new Toolshed Kit is called Winter Adventures.

It very much has a blue jeans theme going on mixed with lots of shades of blues for winter layouts too.

For my first project I went with the "all boy in his jeans" layout. I wanted to make sure I used three specific items on this layout . . . the title, the square mat and the mica flakes. I did very little "mixed media" because I felt that with this paper it didn't need much.

This particular kit is filled with all the latest goodies for those boy layouts. The paper is pure eye-candy and I have really enjoyed putting this layout together. This kit is also wonderful to use when you want a "blue" theme for any reason, including all our girls.

I hope this inspires you!


The title comes in the chipboard extras kit. I heat embossed with my own colors using Lindy's embossing powders Morning Glory Azure and Desert Moon Copper Teal. I did use a very light touch of white Acrylic paint on the stencil provided in the main kit.


The bark and journal board can be found in the embellishment bonus kit.
The mica flakes are in the mixed media bonus kit.


Blue jeans calls for stitching!! I purposely changed settings on my machine to get that "messed up" look. The square border is from the Silhouette Online store.
