Beauty Lies Within Each of Us

49 and Market, Bo Bunny, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

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!

Memory Lane with Sandi

Hello, everyone! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Sandi Clarkson here with you today to share another layout created with the March-April "A Rustic Spring" Garden Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden. 

I took some photo editing privileges to alter this sweet bride's color scheme to suit my needs. Although I'm not usually a huge fan of pink, this sweet Fabscraps paper called out to me! So, I went all pink! 

I kept my mixed media to a minimum this time around and stenciled with the Prima chalk edger in Blossom. When the layout was complete, I splattered with watered down white paint from my stash and with some of the Shimmerz Steely Blue Eyes Inklingz.

I was thrilled to make use of the gorgeous chipboard Art Doors Set 1 from Creative Embellishments which I simply gessoed and then layered in staggered amongst my embellishment layers.

Here you can see the large 49 and Market Garden vine which looks more pink to me but is called pale lavender. I've used some of the other 49 and Market florals from the Kit and add-ons, as well some of the white chipboard leaf flourishes.

The large pinky-peach flower and the lace appliqués are from Tresors de Luxe. This was originally planned as a combined design team project. However, Lucy is changing her format going forward.

My photo layers are from the BoBunny Cottontail papers.

More gorgeous 49 and Market flowers, Shimmer and Shine plus an awesome Junk Findings street sign.

Along with the Prima butterfly, I added another of the Fabscraps vellum stickers.

Just one more shot of the beautiful vine and some of the wee mixology florals.

Lots of gorgeous dimension on this one!
All in all, a rather simple page.

Here's a Main Kit photo for you but I do receive ALL the add-ons and they quickly become part of all my projects! Can't help myself!

I'll see you next time!
In the meantime, happy creating!

XO,
Sandi
