Father and Son Love with International Scrapbook Garden

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my last 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. I have had an amazing time designing with these kits, but due circumstances I must step down from the team. So today I leave you with a very special layout.

Here is my layout:

Father and son

This is such a special layout. It is one of the last photos my dad and brother took together brother took together before dad died a few months later. Even though dad was so thin, you can still see how much they look alike.

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:

Father and son crop 1

  I used lots of the chipboard on this layout. I took the pebble panel and cut it into pieces. I layered it around the layout. Because I had used the other black pieces of chipboard I wanted to keep these pieces black as well. So I gave all the naked chipboard a coat of black gesso, the I went over it with black distress ink.

 

Here is more of that great chipboard. I love the clock and gear corner piece. It was a bonus that they were black. Yes, I snuck in a flower.

Here you can see that great clock/gear corner piece. I didn't have to do much to the background as the paper was already distressed.

It has been a pleasure designing for International Scrapbook Garden. I will miss these masculine kits. They have truly pushed me beyond my comfort level. Thanks so much Tracie for the opportunity.

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

Bliss at 52 with International Scrapbook Garden

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:

Bliss at 52

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:

IMG_4130

  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 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 done, I had an amazing textured background.


IMG_4131




Here you can see more of my layers behind my photo. I also used another on 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.

Love Him with international Scrapbook Garden

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:

Love Him

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:

Love him crop 1

  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 in to add some random stamping.  Once it done, I had an amazing textured background.


Love him crop 2



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.

Untitled with International Scrapbook Garden

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing another layout for March. I created it using the Toolshed kit: Colorburst from The International Scrapbook Garden. We just revealed the March/April kit. It is filled with the Paint Chips paper line from 7 Dots and lots of other goodies. A fun colorful masculine kit

Here is my layout:

Untitled March

Let me start off by saying, if you haven't noticed I rarely put titles on my layouts. Sometimes I find it difficult to really describe what is going on in my photos (especially the ones of my dh). So for this layout I chose one of the two-tone sheets of paper for my background. I think it was the best fit for my photo.

 

  I used items from the main kit, the bonus embellishment kit, the bonus chipboard kit as well as the mixed media kit. I pulled in a couple of things from my stash to add as well.

Here are some close up:

Untitled crop 1

  I used the stencil from the bonus embellishment kit for my background. I love the different size squares, very rugged. After it dried, I used the Lindy's mist and magicals from the mixed media kit for color. I finished it off some black splatters with ink from my stash. 

  Untitled crop 2

I used black embossing powder on all the chippies. I think it gives a nice contrast to all the color going on. The tags are from the main kit. I added the black one from card stock, just wanted to tie in some more black.

Untitled crop 3

I added some stenciling, chipboard, flowers and splatters to the opposite side of my layout to balance it out. It just kinda tied it all together.

Adventure Awaits with The International Scrapbook Garden

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing another layout for March. I created it using the Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs and lots of other goodies.

Here is my layout:

Adventure awaits

One of the papers has all these masculine images on them. I cut a couple out and paired them with another sheet of paper. I kept the layout pretty simple, a little mixed media and minimal embellishments. However, I really like how it turned out.

 

  I used items from the main kit, the bonus chipboard kit as well as the mixed media kit. I pulled in a couple of things from my stash to add as well. I think the texture is what makes this layout.

Here are some close up:

Adventure awaits 1

  The music note flower is from my stash. I thing the kraft color keeps it masculine. I used a woodgrain stencil and modeling paste for texture.  I added some random stamping with a crackle stamp. I finished it off some splatters with the Lindy's mist from the mixed media kit. 

 

Adventure awaits 2


The title chippie was initially white, I colored it with the brown chalk ink from the main kit. If you do this, make sure you give it a blast with your heat tool to dry the ink (it will smudge).

Adventure awaits 3

I added some stenciling, stamping and splatters to the opposite side of my layout to balance it out. Sometimes it doesn't take much to make a masculine layout.

Embrace the Journey with International Scrapbook Garden

Hey everyone, today I'm sharing my first layout for March. I created it using the Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs.

Here is my layout:

Embrace the Journey

I used an older black and white photo of dh. I took this a few years ago. Every now and then he will indulge me and go out on a photo shoot with me.

 

This kit is filled with a lot of fun embellishments.  I used items from the main kit as well as the bonus chipboard kit. I pulled in a few things from my stash to add as well. I added lots of texture to this layout.

Here are some close up:

IMG_4093

  The burlap flower vine is from my stash. I keep a bunch of textured flowers in my stash for masculine layouts. I love to add flowers to my layouts and I think the textured ones are perfect for the guys.  The buttons, resin clock and that great piece of wood is from the main kit.

 

There are fun chipboard pieces and embellishments in the main kit as well as the chipboard bonus kit. I used a technique on the chipboard that a really good friend taught me. You cover the chipboard with liquid pearls and before it dries you add embossing powder and heat set it until it bubbles. Once it dries, you have amazing texture.


IMG_4095


The keyhole Owl is made from a mold. I used some white crackle paste on it, sprayed with some gold mist then rubbed it with some Prima waxes. The chicken wire is a sticker that I cut up in several pieces. The title piece is  from the bonus embellishment kit. I inked it with brown in from the main kit.

Smiles with Prima Lavender Collection

Hey everyone, thank for stopping by. I have had some more time to scrap for myself, so I pulled out some of my newest goodies and went to work. I was lucky enough to get all of the new Prima lines with embellishments in January at ArtVenture.

I happened to have the perfect picture to go with the Lavender line. So off to creating I went, here is what I came up with.

IMG_4105

These papers are so pretty, how could anything you create with them not be pretty. I am pretty happy with the outcome.

Here are some close ups:

IMG_4101

Aren't those flowers amazing. I used about 2 packages on this I may just have to get some more. The chipboard was painted with white crackle paste (that seems to be my go to lately), then painted with 2 colors of purple mist. There are some art stones and micro beads buried in there too.

 

IMG_4102

The clock got the same treatment as the chipboard leaves. I went a step further and randomly rubbed on some rose gold wax to match the rose gold foil on the paper. You c see more of those amazing flowers, art stones and micro beads.

 

IMG_4103

The keyhole was made with resin and a mold. It got 2 coats of gesso, the just rubbed with rose gold wax. You can see some of the stencil I used on the background.

 

IMG_4104

More flowers and chipboard leaves. I got that cute butterfly from an Etsy store. Matched perfectly to my layout. I also randomly added the bling from this line. If you look closely you can see a white one right under the photo. They are so cute, the have foil on them.

 

That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.


Live in the Moment with International Scrapbook Garden

Hey everyone, I'm back today to share my last layout for February created using the Toolshed kit: Winter Adventures from The International Scrapbook Garden. This kit is filled with the Denim and Friends paper line from Maja Designs.

Here is my layout:

Live in the moment

I love this photo of my dh and his very good friend. They look like kids who just got caught doing something they had no business doing. I tried to keep with the playfulness of the photo.

 

This kit is filled with a lot of fun embellishments.  I used items from the main kit as well as the bonus embellishment and bonus chipboard kit. I pulled in a few things from my stash just to add to it.

Here are some close up:

Live in the moment crop 1

  I used a stencil and some modeling paste both from my stash for the background. Then I added a bit of blue embossing powder to the wet modeling paste. I've did some more paper tearing. I also cut some scraps of paper into tags to use.

  Live in the moment crop 2

There are fun chipboard pieces and embellishments in the main kit as well as the chipboard bonus kit. I did grab the filmstrip piece from my stash. In most of my masculine layouts I like to leave the chipboard raw.


Live in the moment crop 3

The flowers are from the bonus embellishment kit. The buttons are in the main kit, so is that awesome clock resin piece. The title pieces are from the bonus embellishment kit. I inked the edges with the blue ink from the main kit.

Believe

Hey guys, I just want to share a couple of layouts I did for fun. I had some free time in my happy place and I pulled out some of my recent favorites and just played around. I was so much fun to just grab stuff that I have been hoarding and just use it. 

This first layout I made using lots of Prima. I just love the Zella Teal line and I had the perfect picture for it. 

IMG_4078

Almost everything on this page is from The Zella Teal line. I used some Prima white crackle paste and Lindy's mist (Shabby Turbine Teal and Tibetan Poppy Teal) for the background. The chipboard is Blue Fern Studios. I embossed it with Lindy's Cafe Au Lait.

 

My next layout was created with Blue Fern Studios products. I used the Tranquility paper line, it's one of my favorites from them. 

Here is my layout:

IMG_4081

I love the brown/teal color combo. I went a little chipboard crazy on this one. I think in total I used 7 pieces, all from Blue Fern Studios. I have a huge chipboard addiction, so it felt good to just get a bunch on a page, lol. I treated the chipboard with several different embossing powders. 

I used my favorite stencil in the background with some Prima gold crackle paste. I also dug into my lace stash and stuck some here and there.  

The flowers are from Petaloo. I really miss their flowers. There is also an old Prima branch in there that I cut up. 

That's all I have today. Thanks for letting me share my work with you today. Stop back by tomorrow as I have more to share.

Peace and Love.
