Snow Bear


Blue and white with beige Winter "Snow Bear" Scrapbook Layout with texture paste snowflakes, plaid, snowflakes, chipboard, flair with flowers by 49&Market

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.

Maja Gift Tags for ISBG


Maja denim and friends paper collection gift tags in blue and brown using cricut explore

Hi all! I wanted share these cute little gift tags I made up with some of the scraps of Maja's Denim and Friends paper collection from my  International Scrapbook Garden kit

I'm not the best about using my scraps. I keep them {because I have hoarding tendencies when it comes to anything scrapbook related}, I just don't use them. But enter the Cricut and every single scrap I own now has endless possibilities {score hoarding!}.

I've already done several projects with the Winter Adventures kit {you can see them herehere, and here!}, so I've already proclaimed my love for these papers, several times. {and probably again after that}

You can find the papers here, or find main kit here.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Blue boy scrapbook layout featuring Maja Denim and Friends papers, cricut cutting, cloud, airplane, wood, bunting banner, Tim Holtz Quote chips with plaid and stripes

Hi all! I'm back with another layout using the Winter Adventures kit from International Scrapbook Garden. I've already professed my undying love for the Maja Denim and Friends papers featured in this kit in my last two projects (Pure Delight & Always Wonder), so for this layout I wanted to do something a little simpler and let the papers shine. 

{I even managed to get the bit of the polka dot "Paisley" navy blue paper I proclaimed to be my favorite paper of all time!}

I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the airplane, cloud, and banner.

I was trying to figure out what I was going to use as my "smoke" from the plane and tried some twine but when I spied the wood flourishes from the kit. {and I got out of gluing string into a curlicue!}

The chip phrases are from Tim Holtz (included in the embellishment bonus kit).

The "You're Awesome" phrase is from the border on one of the B-sides (the back of the information strip at the bottom). I love that you get this fun little "freebie" to add another layer of embellishing.

The story behind that little sun peeking out from behind the cloud is that I had that little piece leftover from cutting out the banner and it wedged itself into that spot {not at all surprising with the mess on the kitchen counter where I've been scrapping lately}. I figured it wanted to live there and who am I to say no to my little paper friends? {commit me now}

Relaxin'

Summer scrapbook page, vacation tropical layout with bright colors and tropical themed die cuts (palm tree, hibiscus, fruit drinks, tickets, suitcases) and mixed media splatter background

Hi all, today I'm in today to share my design team layout for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. Nothing like scrapping some summery-ness in the midst of a Minnesota winter! This was taken by my dad on a trip to see my aunt, who lived in Jamaica for many years. This was on a stop for pineapple juice somewhere between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.

Here's this month's first case file:

Always Wonder

Mixed media scrapbook layout in blue and kraft linen brown neutral with barbed wire heart chipboard frame. Featuring Maja Denim and Friends papers, 49&Market flowers, Tim Holtz phrase chips and wood slices with mica flakes and Lindy's sprays and Kaisercraft Kaisermist

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 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).

Pure Delight

Mixed media scrapbook layout in blue and brown on wood grain background, Maja Denim and Friends papers, birch bark, star, polka dots, striped paper, wooden embellishments with misting and Tim Holtz quote chips

Hi all! I am so excited to share my first layout created with the Toolshed: Winter Adventures Kit from International Scrapbook Garden. All of the kits from ISBG have been amazing, and this one made my heart do a little happy dance.

The funny thing is that it ostensibly a winter kit, but I found myself scrapping some summer pictures (even though we live here in Minnesota and you'd think I would have a gazillion winter pics!). I didn't have any printed and I couldn't wait another single minute to dig in and get my fingers all glue-sticky. But there is so much versatility here, it didn't really matter.

The papers I in this kit are from Maja's Denim and Friends collection. I am in LOVE with this collection! It's been a running theme here, trying to scrap "boyish" when I am naturally drawn to pink and flowers. With these papers, and everything in the kit, I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything.

Everything I used is from the kit. I used my Cricut Explore to cut the star and the letters.
