The Toolshed Kit

Oh So Happy

Hello! I'm Vivian Lake and today I would like to share my 4th project with you using the newest toolshed kit, 'Colorburst'. This kit is full of ephemera perfect for those masculine layouts you've been putting off . . . hint hint!!! My previous pages have been heavy on mixed media, so I went with a different style of layering and stitching lots of the die cuts that come in the kit.


I did use word stamps from my stash, as well as stitching and thread.
But everything else is from the kit.


I liked making the layout look a little messy with loose thread here and there. I also like the "layered" stamp look achieved by mixing and matching small number and word stamps.


More stitching and layers!!

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

Here is my layout:


Even though this is supposed to be a masculine kit, you can do feminine layouts with it as well. I went with a recent photo taken of me while on vacation this past March.

 This kit is has lots of different embellishments to use.  I used items from the main kit, the mediums kit, the bonus paper kit and the embellishment kit. I pulled in a few things from my stash to add as well.

Here are some close up:


 The flowers in this kit are wonderful. They come with these leaves and berries and wire swirlys. I die cut a doily and cut it up to layer all over my layout. I love the metal saying that's tucked into the floral cluster.  l also layered some die cut pieces under my photo.  The background paper and die cuts are from 49 & Market. The cheesecloth and butterfly are from my stash

There are a couple of great stencils to create tons of texture included in the kit. I used the stencil and some modeling to create the background texture. Then I used the mediums kit to create the color.  Once it was done, I had an amazing textured background.


Here you can see more of my layers behind my photo. I also used another one of the metal pieces. I added some pearls to it from my stash. You can also see another piece from the amazing flowers that are in the kit. There is also another piece of the doily and cheese cloth.


 Here are the kits I used for this layout:


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

Hey all! I'm in today to share a new layout for the International Scrapbook Garden Design Team. I've also done another video for a behind the scenes peek at at this layout's creation.


From my stash I used Finnabair Microbeads in Berry and art stones from a previous kit.


Check out the amazing Colorburst kit from the Toolshed Collection and get your hands on these amazing products :)


This month's kits are packed with gorgeous 49 and Market papers and flowers, and products from Kaisercraft, Gabrielle Pollacco, the Dusty Attic, 7 Dots, Prima, and Lindy's Stamp Gang, and it's full of versatility :)

Have a great week...hope you all avoided the BLIZZARD we had over the weekend. {We may live in Minnesota, but seriously, even us northerners are used to tulips by this time of year!}
