Memory Lane with Sandi

Hello, everyone! 
Thanks for stopping by! 


Sandi Clarkson here with you today to share another layout created with the March-April "A Rustic Spring" Garden Kit from The International Scrapbook Garden. 

I took some photo editing privileges to alter this sweet bride's color scheme to suit my needs. Although I'm not usually a huge fan of pink, this sweet Fabscraps paper called out to me! So, I went all pink! 

I kept my mixed media to a minimum this time around and stenciled with the Prima chalk edger in Blossom. When the layout was complete, I splattered with watered down white paint from my stash and with some of the Shimmerz Steely Blue Eyes Inklingz. 


I was thrilled to make use of the gorgeous chipboard Art Doors Set 1 from Creative Embellishments which I simply gessoed and then layered in staggered amongst my embellishment layers.

Here you can see the large 49 and Market Garden vine which looks more pink to me but is called pale lavender. I've used some of the other 49 and Market florals from the Kit and add-ons, as well some of the white chipboard leaf flourishes.

The large pinky-peach flower and the lace appliqués are from Tresors de Luxe. This was originally planned as a combined design team project. However, Lucy is changing her format going forward.

My photo layers are from the BoBunny Cottontail papers.


More gorgeous 49 and Market flowers, Shimmer and Shine plus an awesome Junk Findings street sign.


Along with the Prima butterfly, I added another of the Fabscraps vellum stickers. 


Just one more shot of the beautiful vine and some of the wee mixology florals.


Lots of gorgeous dimension on this one!
All in all, a rather simple page.

Here's a Main Kit photo for you but I do receive ALL the add-ons and they quickly become part of all my projects! Can't help myself!


I'll see you next time!
In the meantime, happy creating!

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!

Hello again !

I'm here to share a photo tutorial today with all of you with beautiful "A Rustic Spring" Garden kit.


I chose 49 and Market paper #TG-87315 Tattered Clock for the background. I put a coat of Clear Gesso on all the surface. Once that was dry I put Texture Paste from my stash and used KaiserCraft Stamp on the Paste before it dried.  Next I used TCW 6x6 Stencil with Modeling Paste. Following with Sprays, Chalk and Watercolor from the kit.


Here is what it looks like with more stamping :)


Here are pieces from 49 and Market Laser Cut Shapes Archival Board and the word Special from Creative Embellishments that I painted with different products as shown on the photo.


I cut these beautiful flowers from FabScraps paper C106-001 Making Memories.


Here is the result !
