Hello and welcome!!!   I'm Vivian Lake and today I'm sharing with you another project.

Our January kit reveal has been postponed until tomorrow so be sure to come back and check out the new kits and some exciting news.  You will not be disappointed!

Today I'm sharing with you another project using International Scrapbook Garden's Toolshed kit . . . The Spider's Web.  I think it's comical that we crafter's can use more supplies to make a card or tag than an actual scrapbook page. Do you?

For this tag, I really wanted to try and use the web stamp that comes in the main kit but I couldn't figure out how to make it "look good". Well, I've been watching a lot of mixed media tutorials lately and there is something I've forgotten about . . . embossing powders!!! Duh!


I hope this tag inspires you. Basically, just make a fun background and layer your embellishments. Piece of cake!



Kit Supplies:
ISB: Spider's Web Main Kit
ISB: Spider's Web Embellishment Kit
ISB: Mixed Media Kit

Extra Supplies:
Glitter Tulle (craft section at Hobby Lobby)
Spellbinder dies and punch for foliage
Black Embossing powder
Black Thread
Background "word" stamp
Lindy's Spray: Moon Shadow Mist (just a touch)
Tim Holtz' Distress Ink: Spiced Marmalade
Clear Duck Tape (adds unique texture)

Happy New Year from International Scrapbook Garden!

New Year Card.jpg

Happy 2018 from all of us at the International Scrapbook Garden to all of you!

What is your resolution this year?  One of my scrappy resolutions is to think of new and creative ways to use products that I have had around for a while!  This card features paper from Maja Design's Home for the Holidays 6 x 6 inch papers, combined with the Toolshed Kit: The Spider's Web, along with a few bits and bobs from my stash!

I used a sketch from fellow design team member Lanette Erickson, which was designed for a 12 x 12 layout and translated it into my "miniature layout", a 4 1/4 inch by 5 1/2 inch card!  Lanette is truly one of the most amazing mixed media artists I have ever met.

The clock is from the Spider's Web Kit and is one of the last pieces I have from the great sheet of stickers from the Kaisercraft 13th Hour Sticker Sheet.  The mist that I used was also in this wonderful kit.  It is from Lindy's Starburst Spray line - Canna Lily Burnt Orange.

The letters and the hand and ticket ephemera are all from Tim Holtz.  The ephemera is from the Christmas 2017 Ephemera pack.  Also, I drew the blue pen line with a pen from my collection (using a ruler!). 

We all wish you a wonderful new year!  Since we know you will need scrappy supplies, consider joining the International Scrapbook Garden Kit Club.  There are amazing kits to choose from.  I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!  Or if you prefer, buy ala carte from the store. 

There is a big 30% off New Years Sale going on through tomorrow and new Pion and Kaisercraft paper collections have just been loaded into the store, including Kaisercraft's new Wandering Ivy Collection and the new Open Road collection, along with the new Holiday collection from Pion: Christmas Wishes and some other Pion favorites!  Now is the time to grab these new collections and many other beautiful lines at 30% off!

Please join us on Facebook, too!  We have lots of fun planned in the new year and that fun begins with you!

Things are Not What They Seem

Hello!  It's Victoria, again.  Back with another fanciful card created from the International Scrapbook Garden Tool Shed Kit:  Spider's Web.  I absolutely love the wood grain paper.  It really makes anything you add to it "pop".  In this case I used a simple design of rectangular layers.  I used a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch card blank, created from black card stock.   The wood grain paper was cut to 4 by 5 1/4 inches.  The cross shape uses black card stock with plaid layers and black card stock with word layers.  The embellishment of the framed crow is from Martha Stewart and "morphs" into the crow skeleton.  The washi tapes are from Tim Holtz, as is the saying.  I love how six layers can add so much depth to a simple design.

Hope you enjoy this card.  Check out all the ideas on the blog.  You will be inspired by all of the great projects from the design team.
