Hi everyone, It's reveal day!  I am so excited to show you our next two kits.  First up is the Garden Kit: A Rustic Spring featuring new paper lines from Fab Scraps and 49 and Market.


This kit is filled with lots of flowers perfect for springtime, wooden butterflies, Fab Scraps stickers, a few Easter elements as well with chicks and bunnies from Prima, and more!


The Bonus Paper kit includes more Fab Scraps and 49 and Market as well as 13 Arts papers, and a few extra coordinating flowers.  And if you want the ability to use both sides of the paper, we also have a Double It! kit which includes a second set of all papers in the main and bonus kits.


The Bonus Embellishment kit is packed with more spring-themed additions including some Easter cut-outs from Bo Bunny's new Cottontail line, Prima butterflies and glitter, and more!


And because you can never have enough flowers, especially in the spring, there's also a Bonus Flower kit full of beautiful blooms from 49 and Market.

Next is the thoughtfully coordinated Mixed Media kit to add more pop and interest to your layouts.  This kit includes some beautiful colors from Shimmerz, Prima, Kaisercraft, and Blue Fern Studios.
A must-have for any serious scrapbooker!


The Bonus Chipboard is one of my favorites.  If you're like me, you can't ever have too much chipboard.  This month's kit includes pretty garden elements and frames, and a couple of Easter themed options too.


And if you enjoy making cards and mini projects the Fairy Garden Bonus kit is for you!  This kit includes 6X6 and 8X8 papers from the main kit and bonus kits to create other projects or add to your layouts.


Next up is the March/April Toolshed Kit: Colorburst featuring new paper lines from 7 Dots and 49 and Market.  This kit is packed with color but also has more neutral options, so it can be quite versatile.  


The Toolshed kit traditionally does not include flowers in the main kit, as it is geared for more masculine layouts.  However, with all the color options in this kit, I couldn't resist adding a few.  And as usual, you can always find more in the Bonus Embellishment kit below.  Also included are some great coordinating die cuts from Kaisercraft, Tags and die cuts from 7 Dots, an adhesive tin tile from 7 Gypsies, a TCW Textures stencil designed by Gabrielle Pollacco, and more!

The Toolshed kit also has a Bonus Paper kit with more paper from 49 and Market and some coordinating paper from Kaisercraft, if you want a little break from all that color!  And if you want the ability to use both sides of the paper, we also have a Double It! kit which includes a second set of all papers in the main and bonus kits.


The Embellishment Bonus kit includes more coordinating flowers, some 7 Dots word stickers, some great archival board in black from 49 and Market and also some of their new die cut elements, and more!


All the colors in this kit led to a big Mixed Media kit this month including 6 items!  This is great to coordinate with the 7 Dots paper line, but it can also be used to add a pop of color to those neutral options.

The Colorburst kit also has a Bonus Chipboard option to add more interest to your layouts.


And if you enjoy making cards and mini projects the Fairy Garden Bonus kit is for you!  This kit includes 6X6 papers from 49 and Market and 7 Dots to create other projects or add to your layouts.

Backyard Adventures

Maja Design, Scrapbook Kits, Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hi all! I'm back with another layout using the Winter Adventures kit from International Scrapbook Garden. I've already professed my undying love for the Maja Denim and Friends papers featured in this kit in my last two projects (Pure Delight & Always Wonder), so for this layout I wanted to do something a little simpler and let the papers shine. 

{I even managed to get the bit of the polka dot "Paisley" navy blue paper I proclaimed to be my favorite paper of all time!}

I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the airplane, cloud, and banner.


I was trying to figure out what I was going to use as my "smoke" from the plane and tried some twine but when I spied the wood flourishes from the kit. {and I got out of gluing string into a curlicue!}


The chip phrases are from Tim Holtz (included in the embellishment bonus kit).

The "You're Awesome" phrase is from the border on one of the B-sides (the back of the information strip at the bottom). I love that you get this fun little "freebie" to add another layer of embellishing.


The story behind that little sun peeking out from behind the cloud is that I had that little piece leftover from cutting out the banner and it wedged itself into that spot {not at all surprising with the mess on the kitchen counter where I've been scrapping lately}. I figured it wanted to live there and who am I to say no to my little paper friends? {commit me now}
