Maja Design, Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hello again! I'm Vivian Lake and today I'm sharing with you a new page from the toolshed kit Winter Adventures. This kit is so versatile for just about any boy page you want to make. It has a lovely mix of blue paper by Maja Design, snow, hearts, and other masculine touches. 

Seriously, this kit has it all!!


I dabble in two unique styles. One is using large die cuts on my pages while still incorporating negative space. The other is mixed media, which I have shown in previous blog posts. While mixed media is "new" to me, die cuts is my first love as I've been using them for years.


The hearts is a background die cut found on the Silhouette online store by Paige Evans. I then cut out a few hearts (using the same file) to make the background more interesting.


I tried very hard to stick to the kit. I did add a bit of lace from my stash, as well as die cut leaves and thread. These just help make the cluster a bit more "full" looking.


On my previous pages, I heat embossed the chipboard. I felt like the heart was perfect for this page as it was.
