7 Dots, The Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hi all! I was so in love with this month's kit from International Scrapbook Garden. If you caught my last two layouts (here and here), you know how versatile the goodies in the Colorburst kit are. I chose more muted tones for the last two layouts to satisfy my own scrapping mood, but I wanted to do something with the more colorful elements in the kit. The Creative Embellishments chipboard title "Color My World" was perfect, and of course perfect for a picture of my own little rainbow maker, the painter of the colors in my world.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Maja Design, Scrapbook Kits, Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Hey everyone Kim here, I'm back today to share another layout created using the January toolshed kit: Winter Adventures. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs. It's great for masculine or winter pages.

Here is my layout:


This kit is filled with a lot of fun embellishments. The mixed media kit compliments everything so well. I used items from the main kit as well as the bonus embellishment and mixed media kits.

Here are some close up:


I used the Lindy's spray from the mixed media kit  for the background. I also used some gold mist from Prima and some white ink, both from my stash.


There are fun chipboard pieces in the main kit as well as the chipboard bonus kit. The chipboard pocket pieces are everything. To color mine and give it the distresses look, I just ran the chalk ink (in the main kit) lightly over the chipboard to get the desired color.

That star is real denim and was included in the kit. I just kinda stuffed it in the pocket. The button (also in the main kit) was added to make it look like a real pocket.


I also did a bit of masking to the background using the stencil in the main kit. Also showing more of the fun chipboard. I just used some navy blue embossing powder on it. The dry wall tape is from my stash. I just colored it using the same chalk ink from the kit.

Here are the kits I used for this layout: 


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