Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my first layout for April. I created it using the Toolshed kit:Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with papers from 7 Dots and 49 &Market.

Here is my layout:


Again, I used an older black and white photo of dh. Another one I took a few years ago, from a different photo shoot with me.

 This kit is has lots of different embellishments to use.  I used items from the main kit, the bonus paper kit, the embellishment kit as well as the bonus chipboard kit. I pulled in a couple things from my stash to add as well. I added lots of texture to this layout.

Here are some close up:


There is a whole package of ephemera in the kit. I used it to layer all over my layout. I love the tag and the saying.  That frame behind the photo is a die cut from 49 & Market.

There are great stamps and stencils to create tons of texture included in the kit. I used the stencil and some black gesso to create the barbed wire texture. Then I took the stamp (which included splots and tea stain rings) and some black ink to add some random stamping.  Once it was done, I had an amazing textured background.


The kit has this wonderful 7 Gypsies tile tin in it. It was perfect behind my photo, however the package had smaller images of the tile on it. I cut out 2 of those and used them as layers behind my picture. I even managed to sneak a few small flowers in on this layout.


 Here are the kits I used for this layout:


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

Maja Design, Scrapbook Kits, Toolshed KitTracie ShumanComment

Happy Friday, crafters! Today I have a layout I created for the International Scrapbook Garden Design Team, featuring the Toolshed: Winter Adventures kit.

The kit features the gorgeous Maja paper collection Denim and Friends, and I am over the moon for it. That polka dot paper I used for the title (Paisley B-side) may be my favorite paper. Ever. You don't get the full effect of it here, because I only had a scrap left over after creating my last project (Pure Delight), but I had to use up every little scrap. I know you scrappers know that feeling: when your heart does a little pitter patter of contentment when you find something you just luuurve.

The kit also includes goodies from 49&Market, Tim Holtz, Gabrielle Pollacco, and more. Scroll down for details and to the bottom for a complete list of products used. 


I love the natural elements in this kit. They appeal to my rustic side and love of the natural world. Getting that on a scrapbook page is so exciting!


The barbed wire heart frame from Creative Embellishments is a fun way to frame our boys in our hearts!


 The 49&Market Garden Seeds Flowers in Linen are beautiful paired Tim Holtz's wood slices and nature's glitter: mica flakes.


Gabrielle Pollacco was one of the first scrapbookers I discovered in the online scrapbooking community, and I was so excited to find one of her templates in the main kit! 


I used the DecoArt Snow-Tex Snowflake Paste from the mixed media kit over the stencil and dry brushed over it with Kaisercraft's Kaisermist in Denim (also in the mixed media kit).
