Have a Great Birthday

Toolshed Kit, Maja DesignTracie ShumanComment

Well, remember last week, I said I was loving snowflakes?  Well I still am only in a different way!  We have a few inches of snow on the ground with the promise of more to come.  This week I created a card using the Fairy Garden add on papers from the Toolshed Kit: Winter Adventure.  I am in love with the tennis shoes!  I used the denim star and the twine from the main kit.  Everything you see is from the kit except:  the card background, the nailhead stars and the stamp is one I have had for awhile.  I also did faux stitching with a pen. 


I wanted to show you the close up so you could see the tennis shoes, and the little tag has numbers.  So adorable!  Honestly, the kits from the International Scrapbook Garden are jam packed with fun!  You can't go wrong when you subscribe or shop with Tracie.  I am having so much fun with these hard-to-find (in the US) papers.  They really give your work a unique look!

Be back next week (hopefully with no snow on the ground)!

Hey everyone Kim here, I'm back today to share another layout created using this month's Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs. It's great for masculine or winter pages, but again I decided to make a feminine layout with it.

Here is my layout:


This kit is filled with a lot of fun embellishments. The mixed media kit compliments everything so well. I used items from the main kit as well as the bonus embellishments. I pulled in a few things from my stash to make it a bit more girly.

Here are some close up:


 I used a stencil and some modeling paste both from my stash for the background. Then a bit of stamping with the brown ink from the main kit. I've been into paper tearing a lot lately. To soften it up a bit I added the lace around it.


There are fun chipboard pieces in the main kit as well as the chipboard bonus kit. The chipboard heart is perfect for girly layouts. To color I used some blue embossing powder from my stash. I added the swirl chipboard piece from my stash to draw your eye to the photo. I embossed it with white embossing powder.


The flowers are from the bonus embellishment kit. I dug out some paper clay pieces I made with Prima molds from my stash to tuck into the flower clusters.


Showing more of the fun chipboard, the title is from the main kit. These little words and hearts are so adorable.

Here are the kits I used for this layout:


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

If you've seen my last few posts, you've seen some of the Winter Adventures kit from International Scrapbook Garden. I didn't have much for winter pictures printed at the time and I really wanted to dive in, so I hadn't gotten to really play with the winter elements yet. Then I found this picture of Zae in his bear suit from his first winter (two years ago!) and it was time to play with the wintery goodness in this kit.
