Things are Not What They Seem

Hello!  It's Victoria, again.  Back with another fanciful card created from the International Scrapbook Garden Tool Shed Kit:  Spider's Web.  I absolutely love the wood grain paper.  It really makes anything you add to it "pop".  In this case I used a simple design of rectangular layers.  I used a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch card blank, created from black card stock.   The wood grain paper was cut to 4 by 5 1/4 inches.  The cross shape uses black card stock with plaid layers and black card stock with word layers.  The embellishment of the framed crow is from Martha Stewart and "morphs" into the crow skeleton.  The washi tapes are from Tim Holtz, as is the saying.  I love how six layers can add so much depth to a simple design.

Hope you enjoy this card.  Check out all the ideas on the blog.  You will be inspired by all of the great projects from the design team.

Hello All! 

Lanette here, Today I'm back sharing a Halloween inspired layout that I created using this crazy amazing kit....


As you may know our current Toolshed kit is packed full of shockingly beautiful Halloween papers from two amazing paper companies: Authentique & Pion.  I chose the Pion papers for my layout.  I fell in love with these papers, I hope you can see why....


Additionally I used a couple of the super cute embellishments from the embellishment add on kit......


Heck I even used a bit of the Mixed Media add on kit!


As you can see these kits are packed full of some amazing goodies!! I really had fun creating with this kit!

Here are a couple close ups of my layout.  I hope you enjoy them! :)


 Here you can see that I added both of the Lindys Sprays to nearly every sheet of paper I used.


Lots of lovely layers...


With little bits and bobbles added here and there.

Before I go, did you know that you can pick up extra goodies from the International Scrapbook Garden in addition to their amazing kits??

I have been patiently waiting to showcase the Martha Stewart elements.  See the cat?  Later you won't!  For this card I used a blue card base that has a kraft interior.  The fabulous papers are from the ISBG Tool Shed Spider's Web Kit.  I have been having so much fun distressing these papers with my small scissors.  This card uses only kit items and a small corner punch, an edge punch of your choice and silver pearls from my stash.  I am absolutely in love with the laces that came in the kit, in both black and white.  And the charms are also super cute.  In fact, I considered holding back a pair and making some spooky Halloween earrings (I may still).

I did my best to photograph the super cool Martha Stewart images.  The image above shows the black cat (just one of several images in the kit).  Now take a peek at this photo:


Isn't that the coolest thing!  Spooky, right?!?

Happy to show you this card and the fantastic element from the kit.  Be sure to check out the rest of the blog and the store for more great ideas!
