Grimm Canvas and Fall Cards

Here is hoping all of our fans at ISBG had a wonderful Thanksgiving, if you are in the US!  I want to share three cards and a canvas I made with the new Tool Shed Kit:  Spider's Web 

This kit is amazing!  I made three cards.  This first card is made with the Fairy Garden add on!  I absolutely adore this image.  I used the argyle paper, the witchy image, a tag and some brown bakers twine.  I absolutely adore the Lindy's mist that was included in the kit.


Card number two is a further back vintage-y feeling card.  I used these supplies:

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch white card base
Black mini doily
Kaiser Craft 13th hour sticker sheet
Pion Designs The Witching Hour - Dark Roses Patterned Paper cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches
Petaloo Orange flowers
Sticker Tim Holtz Ideology Halloween Clipping Stickers
Three yellow sequins.


This last little 4 1/4 inch x 4 1/4 inch card is called I'm Thankful for You.  I used a white card blank, patterned paper from Pion Designs October Garden from the Witching Hour collection and letters from the KaiserCraft 13th Hour Sticker Sheet.  This card is perfect for any fall celebration!


Finally I made this 8 inch square canvas with items from the kit.  I am in love.  My favorite TV show was GRIMM.  One reason was some of it was filmed at the University I was teaching at while the show was on air.  And of course it is filmed in my home town of Portland, Oregon.  This canvas made with all kit items is a nod to the show and the "skull guy".  The sayings were combined to give a GRIMM like attitude and the prescription note reminded me of Rosalee's Spice Shop.  The only thing I added to make this was Mod Podge in Matte and the Lindy's Spray that is purple in Witches Brew, everything and I mean everything else is in this fantabulous kit!


 Have a blessed Thanksgiving with your families and friends!

The October Toolshed Kit Reveal: The Spider's Web

Hi everyone!  I am so excited to finally reveal our October Halloween kit today: The Spider's Web!  Sorry for the late debut; but the good news is, you'll have all of your newest pics from this year to scrap with it!  


This kit is chock full of so many creepy, scary goodies including 2 sets of chipboard, Lindy's starburst spray, lots of Tim Holtz embellishments, spooky Alphas, skulls and bones, stickers, Dylusions stamp and stencil, skull burlap, and even "spider webs".  And that's just the main kit.  Feast your eyes on the goodies available in the Bonus kits:


The Fairy Garden will now be a coordinating paper add on to the main kit, rather than a whole separate kit, but our Fairy Garden design team will still be creating lots of amazing cards and mini projects for great inspiration!

To kick things off, check out this incredible layout from Carrie:


Hi there, my friends! I have the most exciting reveal today! I recently received the latest kit from the Toolshed Collection from International Scrapbook Garden. I absolutely love Halloween and fall, and the Spider's Web kit was packed with all kinds of themed goodies!

Here's some close ups of my project:


I had so much fun with the Tim Holtz phrase stickers. It was fun to create a sort of "story" with creepy phrases!


Of course there were tons of halloween themed chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments in the kit to really go all out.


The rub ons in the embellishments bonus kit were sooo perfect beneath the chippie spider web.


I fell in love with these skeleton cameos. So perfectly vintage creepy!

I hope you had a very scary halloween, and be sure to get a hold of the Spider's Web kit to scrap your halloween pics!
