International Scrapbook Garden: Adjust Your Focus

Hello there! Oh boy, have I gotten onto the mixed media bandwagon!! My blog is full of paper piecing and die cut techniques so you know this is quite new to me. Here is my second project using the Toolshed Kit and Summer Concert bonus packs by International Scrapbook Garden.

I had a little help with this layout. I followed Nadia Cannizzo's YouTube video and her techniques quite closely, but the finished layout is still my own. I may be falling in love with mixed media, but I would still consider my style "clean" comparatively.

That may change in time . . . but I'm still very happy with how this turned out.

The photo is mine as well, taken in the Alps during our trip to Germany last year. I have been waiting for the "right" opportunity to scrap this sensational photo. I toyed with the title for quite a while, finally settling on a unique title, but small and in the corner. I didn't want to distract from the photo, plus I wanted to use what was provided in the kit, which was 6x12 word stickers Hazy Days by 7 Dots Studio.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!!

This layout does represent my continual goal to scrap
about my vacation in Germany. 
All the colors represented are part of the Toolshed Summer Concert pack
by International Scrapbook Garden. The stamped date is
from my stash.

Showing here a cluster of goodies found in the pack.

The circles are all templates from my own stash.

I did do "messed up" machine sewing as well as add
textured ribbon. 

The photo, in an extra large view. I actually waited for the clouds
to roll in to get this particular shot. We were a mile high up in the mountains.


My own stash:
Circle Stencils (big and little)
Black Ink
Textured Paste
Textured ribbon
Machine stitching
Date Stamp


  1. You did a great job using the mixed media tools! Love how the background meshes with the photo. I'm going to have to check out this YouTuber for some inspiration myself!
