Prima, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Hello! I'm Vivian Lake and I'm here to share with you a special layout about my sister. I'm using International Scrapbook Garden kits and supplies . . . 'Autumn Hayride'.

I have tried to scrap my sister's wedding photos a couple times, but I have always felt that my pages didn't do justice to the photos. Not enough flowers, or something else was missing in the past.

Anyway, I love how wonderfully mixed the Garden kits are and wanted to give it another go.

I used a variety of techniques on my chipboards, including the use of the Red Amber wax
Isn't that gorgeous?!

Birdhouse Whimsey

The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

I made this cute little birdhouse using the Rustic Spring Garden Kit.  The flowers came from the Bonus Paper Kit of the Rustic Spring Garden. I used the Shimmerz paints to paint the roof coral and stripe the walls.  You'll find the paints in the Mixed Media Rustic Spring Garden Add-on.

My birdhouse cost $1.00 at a local craft store.  I used Aleene's Tacky Glue to adhere everything.

For the roof I cut 2 inch strips from the white paint paper and painted them with coral reef Shimmerz. I adhered them beginning at the bottom of each side of the roof with adhesive on the top only.  This allowed me to curve the pieces of paper slightly to give a shabby look.  I then cut the side pieces and painted them with the steely blue eyes Shimmerz.  I intentionally did light stripes to give it a little dimension in the woven paper.  I also painted around the bird hole!  I cut 1/4 and 3/8 strips from pink wooden patterned paper to do the eaves and the footing for the house.  Finally I added a 1 inch burlap square, the Prima Flowers and the Blessed sticker mounted on patterned paper and fussy cut.  The final touch was the tiny butterfly on the eaves of the house.  Keep thinking outside of the layout and you can create wonderful off the page gifts!

See the blue stripes on the paper?  They really add shimmer in the sunlight.  And the Prima flowers are so cute and country looking.  I just love them with the tiny house.

Have a wonderful week!  I hope you are having good weather wherever you are.

Happy Spring! Happy Mother's Day!

It's another beautiful Spring Day here.  I have been working on this door hanger this week, using the Garden Kit:  A Rustic Spring and I also used lovely flowers from the add-on from the Extra Blooms Kit.  I also used the Shimmerz Spritz in Plum Pudding on the title.  Extras I used were Shimmerz Texturez in Tidy Widy from an earlier kit, and acrylic paints in green and yellow from my stash.  Also there is a splash of spots in Penny for Your Thoughts Inklingz.  I also added three rusty butterflies!
