Hi all! I was so in love with this month's kit from International Scrapbook Garden. If you caught my last two layouts (here and here), you know how versatile the goodies in the Colorburst kit are. I chose more muted tones for the last two layouts to satisfy my own scrapping mood, but I wanted to do something with the more colorful elements in the kit. The Creative Embellishments chipboard title "Color My World" was perfect, and of course perfect for a picture of my own little rainbow maker, the painter of the colors in my world.

49 and Market, 7 Dots, The Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my last layout I created using the April Toolshed kit: Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with papers from 7 Dots and 49 &Market. I have had an amazing time designing with these kits, but due circumstances I must step down from the team. So today I leave you with a very special layout.

Here is my layout:

This is such a special layout. It is one of the last photos my dad and brother took together before dad died a few months later. Even though dad was so thin, you can still see how much they look alike.

I used items from the main kit, the mediums kit, the bonus paper kit and the embellishment kit. I pulled in a few things from my stash to add as well.

Here are some close up:

  I used lots of the chipboard on this layout. I took the pebble panel and cut it into pieces. I layered it around the layout. Because I had used the other black pieces of chipboard I wanted to keep these pieces black as well. So I gave all the naked chipboard a coat of black gesso, then I went over it with black distress ink.

Here is more of that great chipboard. I love the clock and gear corner piece. It was a bonus that they were black. Yes, I snuck in a flower.

Here you can see that great clock/gear corner piece. I didn't have to do much to the background as the paper was already distressed.

It has been a pleasure designing for International Scrapbook Garden. I will miss these masculine kits. They have truly pushed me beyond my comfort level. Thanks so much Tracie for the opportunity.

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

7 Dots, Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing another layout for March. I created it using the Toolshed kit: Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. We just revealed the March/April kit. It is filled with the Paint Chips paper line from 7 Dots and lots of other goodies. A fun colorful masculine kit.

Here is my layout:

Let me start off by saying, if you haven't noticed I rarely put titles on my layouts. Sometimes I find it difficult to really describe what is going on in my photos (especially the ones of my dh). So for this layout I chose one of the two-tone sheets of paper for my background. I think it was the best fit for my photo.

I used items from the main kit, the bonus embellishment 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.

Here are some close up:

I used the stencil from the bonus embellishment kit for my background. I love the different size squares, very rugged. After it dried, I used the Lindy's mist and magicals from the mixed media kit for color. I finished it off some black splatters with ink from my stash.

I used black embossing powder on all the chippies. I think it gives a nice contrast to all the color going on. The tags are from the main kit. I added the black one from card stock, just wanted to tie in some more black.

I added some stenciling, chipboard, flowers and splatters to the opposite side of my layout to balance it out. It just kinda tied it all together.

 Here are the kits I used for this layout:
