Beauty Lies Within Each of Us

This is my last design team project for The International Scrapbook Garden! I am sad that there will be no more kits for awhile, but I hope that Tracie starts curating them again soon because she is so good at it!

I decided to create a simple card using the Rustic Spring kit, partly because I needed to write back to my aunt and I wanted a nice handmade card to send to her.

A couple months ago I found a pack of blank white notecards in the $1 spot at Target, so that's what I've been using to create my handmade cards. For this one, I just adhered some of the Bo Bunny paper onto the front of the card and filled in any blank spots with a 49 and Market branding strip, the one that said "Beauty Lies Within Each of Us". That's a very nice sentiment!

Then I added all my leftover 49 and Market Floral Mixology Blue Hawaiian flowers to the printed vase on the patterned paper to create some dimension there, tied the pink twine into a bow, and hot glued it to the vase.

Then I just did some black inking around the edge of the card for added effect and to make everything stand out more. It couldn't have been easier!

I hope that you've enjoyed seeing what I've created with The International Scrapbook Garden kits. I know I have enjoyed working with them! And don't forget that you can still purchase past kits and individual items from the shop.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Hi, guys, it's Laurie! I'm still creating with my Rustic Spring kit from The International Scrapbook Garden. I kept the 49 and Market flowers pink and red on this layout featuring some photos of my daughter from last year.

I used a 13@rts paper as the background and then created a grid using Fab ScrapsBo Bunny, and 49 and Market papers from the kit. The grid design was inspired by a National Scrapbook Day challenge. How many of you participated in challenges that day or at least got a lot of scrapping done?

I used some of the Creative EmbellishmentsKaisercraft, and 49 and Market chipboard that came in the kit, and I either embossed it with the Imagine Ink Forest Embossing Powder, sprayed it with the Kaisercraft Blackberry spray, stamped it with some Ingvild Bolme chalk ink (one color came from an older ISBG kit), or painted it with the Shimmerz Inklingz Coral Reef.

This came together very easily, and I had fun layering and clustering all of the embellishments. I used my hot glue gun to adhere the embellishments to the page for added strength.

It took a little longer to complete this layout, only because I had to wait for the chipboard to dry before putting it on the page, but I think the extra effort was well worth it.

The Rustic Spring kit is still available to purchase in the shop, so check it out!

Thanks for looking!

Easter Bunny

It's Laurie again, and I'm back with another layout using the A Rustic Spring kit! I almost veered away from the traditional spring theme, but I had this extra photo of my daughter with the Easter bunny, and I really wanted to use the Prima Shabby Chic Treasures Rabbits on a layout about it, so that's what I ended up doing.

I'm also rather excited about this one because I broke out my heat tool to use with the Blue Fern Studios Imagine Ink Embossing Powder Forest on the Creative Embellishments Archway and chipboard words.

The papers on this one are 49 and Market Tattered PlaygroundFab Scraps Love Grows Here, and Bo Bunny Cottontail Festive and Hippity Hop. All four collections played so nicely together!

And I did a big 'ole mixture of flowers in my embellishment clusters using the 49 and Market Blossom Blends Bluebell49 and Market Shimmer and Shine Blush Jardin Secret (my faves!), and Prima Flowers Relics & Artifacts Blushing Bouquet.

And it wouldn't be a layout of mine lately without a little bit of misting splatter. For this one, I used the Shimmerz Spritz Plum Pudding. It splattered well, but the splatters were small, so you can't really tell unless you're looking at the layout up close.

There's more to come from this collection, and I'm having fun playing around and experimenting! While you're staying tuned, don't forget to visit The International Scrapbook Garden store and purchase A Rustic Spring kit of your own!

Thanks for looking!
