The International Scrapbook Garden


Love Him

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my first layout for April. I created it using the Toolshed kit:Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with papers from 7 Dots and 49 &Market.

Here is my layout:


Again, I used an older black and white photo of dh. Another one I took a few years ago, from a different photo shoot with me.

 This kit is has lots of different embellishments to use.  I used items from the main kit, the bonus paper kit, the embellishment kit as well as the bonus chipboard kit. I pulled in a couple things from my stash to add as well. I added lots of texture to this layout.

Here are some close up:


There is a whole package of ephemera in the kit. I used it to layer all over my layout. I love the tag and the saying.  That frame behind the photo is a die cut from 49 & Market.

There are great stamps and stencils to create tons of texture included in the kit. I used the stencil and some black gesso to create the barbed wire texture. Then I took the stamp (which included splots and tea stain rings) and some black ink to add some random stamping.  Once it was done, I had an amazing textured background.


The kit has this wonderful 7 Gypsies tile tin in it. It was perfect behind my photo, however the package had smaller images of the tile on it. I cut out 2 of those and used them as layers behind my picture. I even managed to sneak a few small flowers in on this layout.


 Here are the kits I used for this layout:


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


Love You Most

Hello, everyone!  Laurie here on the blog today, and I'm so excited that the new The International Scrapbook Garden kits are here! My Kisses and Snowflakes Garden Kit just arrived a few days ago, and I have been going through everything, giving myself time to see what's there and figure out how I want to use all of the gorgeousness that Tracie curated.

In the meantime, I created another layout using the Autumn Hayride kit. And even though this is a fall-themed kit, this layout uses summer pictures! Yes, this kit is that versatile! And yes, I even have a process video to share with you. You can view it on my YouTube channel here.


I was able to use a lot of the Prima Amber Moon ephemera and enamel dots on this layout, and that large sequin butterfly is Prima, too. Just gorgeous! And I love how those flowers are colors that could be fall but could also be summer.


The papers I chose were the Pion Design paper with the sunflowers, and then there was a Kaisercraft paper with strips that had a strip of pears that I thought was very summery. So I was really impressed with the way this kit was able to translate through the seasons.


I have yet to use it to make a Christmas/winter layout, but some of the other talented design team members have already done it, so it is possible!

Don't forget to visit The International Scrapbook Garden shop to get your hands on this kit and the brand new kits, too! And stay tuned to the blog because we'll all be sharing projects with the new kits very soon.

Thanks for looking!


We are all Dreamers

Hello crafty friends, I am so excited to be here on the International Scrapbook Garden as a new designer! I have my very first layout to share with you made with the beautiful January Garden kit 'Kisses and Snowflakes'.

'We are all dreamers'


I started with two sheets of the 13 arts paper collection 'Art Journey' as my base,
and then created lots of layers with some notecards, flowers, and chipboard.

Here are a few close ups:
