Hey everyone,

 Kim here to share a layout I created with the newest Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures.

This months kit is full of papers from Maja Designs, Denim and Friends. I have to say this is one amazing kit. Even though I am a pink and flowers girl deep in my soul, this kit sings to me even though it is a masculine kit. Maybe later I will show you how to create a feminine layout with it.

So for my first layout with this kit, I decided to do the mood board challenge. You guys did know that we have a monthly mood board challenge?  If not, here is a link to the post with the details: mood board challenge.

Here is the mood board:


Enough chit chat, here is my take on the challenge:


I followed the sketch (had to flip the photo) and then went with the winter theme.

Here are some close ups:


We got some snow paste in the mixed media kit, I used that to top of the chipboard pieces after I embossed them with some snowflake embossing powder.


Those little wood circles are in the kit and are great fillers in flower clusters.


I used the snow paste with the snowflake stencil in the kit randomly on the background along with the Lindy's mist. I ran the blue ink along the edges of the title.


Because there was just a little pink in my photo and I wanted to tie in a little pink, I added a small piece of a die cut doily. The flair wasn't the right color, so I did a little wash of water and blue glimmer glam.

Here is a list of supplies I used for this layout:
Toolshed Main Kit
Toolshed Bonus papers
Toolshed Embellishment Bonus
Toolshed Bonus Chipboard
Toolshed Mixed Media

From my stash, I used the bling, the snowflake embossing powder, doily die cut and the cheesecloth.

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