Hey everyone Kim here, today I'm sharing my first layout for March. I created it using the Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs.

Here is my layout:

I used an older black and white photo of dh. I took this a few years ago. Every now and then he will indulge me and go out on a photo shoot with me and actually let me take some pictures of him.

This kit is filled with a lot of fun embellishments.  I used items from the main kit as well as the bonus chipboard kit. I pulled in a few things from my stash to add as well. I added lots of texture to this layout.

Here are some close up:

 The burlap flower vine is from my stash. I keep a bunch of textured flowers in my stash for masculine layouts. I love to add flowers to my layouts and I think the textured ones are perfect for the guys.  The buttons, resin clock and that great piece of wood is from the main kit.

There are fun chipboard pieces and embellishments in the main kit as well as the chipboard bonus kit. I used a technique on the chipboard that a really good friend taught me. You cover the chipboard with liquid pearls and before it dries you add embossing powder and heat set it until it bubbles. Once it dries, you have amazing texture.

The keyhole Owl is made from a mold. I used some white crackle paste on it, sprayed with some gold mist then rubbed it with some Prima waxes. The chicken wire is a sticker that I cut up in several pieces. The title piece is  from the bonus embellishment kit. I inked it with brown ink from the main kit.

Recently I have been creating more layouts and its been great! Surprisingly I really missed all the tiny details that go in to every page. Unfornitly sometimes they get lost in the process so I thought that today I would share a couple details/tips about this layout.

Sometimes the simplest things add a bunch and I have always loved inked edges, I really feel that the layers pop when the edges have been inked. So I was super excited to find two tiny Prima Inkers in this months kit. I used the Farmers Jeans for all the edges on my layout.

So sometimes you don't have the perfect chipboard, but with just a few snips I had the perfect title for my little Ladies Backyard Fun. So always take second look at your chippies you may have the perfect title hiding :)
