Tres Jolie Design Team and CSI

Hi everyone!

This month Tres Jolie is a sponsor for the challenge blog, CSI: Color, Stories, and Inspiration! You can read more about CSI HERE.

And because we are sponsoring, the design team played along with Case File 260:

This color palette is perfect for using the August scrapbooking kit, plus some splashes of yellow!

Here’s what the design team came up with:

Ginny:

I used the colour scheme for my inspiration and the Scene for my story/ photo.

The photo is Tenby in Pembrokeshire UK. Its not the first time I have scrapped this place, but it is my favourite place to go, gorgeous beaches, views, town and a certain yummy salted caramel ice-cream! It has the most amazing atmosphere and is great for young and old alike. You can’t help but just feel happy here!  My journaling I have noted on the back of the layout.

I used the Prima Santorini papers, flowers and embellishments from the Tres Jolie kit. The yellow flower flowers were from my stash.

Rae:

For my layout, I was inspired by the amazing summer colors in the color palette, and using the Tres Jolie kit was perfect for making it fit when I added some sunny yellow flowers! I love the travel theme, so it was the perfect opportunity to use this picture.

Kim:

I fell in love with the color palette, so I went the traditional route. I tried to incorporate some of the clues into the layout (I only managed 2) flowers and leaves. The photo is of me and my best friend at a BBQ (doesn’t quite make the travel theme). Again, this was such a beautiful palette to work with.

Heather:

Here is what I came up with and how I cracked the case. I used the paper from the kit to my benefit on the prompts. I used the floral pattern. I also use the travel theme and used a picture from our girls 40th Birthday holiday week in Key West. A sunrise on the eastern coast of the island. I added the ribbon and lace and some pretty blooms to go with it. I also added a bit of flair to incorporate the anchor in the page. So fitting for Key West. I also used a label to write my journaling.

Havana Cards and the Card Sketch with Rae

Happy Saturday, craft people!

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun cards I made with the August card kit, and, I used the first Tres Jolie card sketch designed by owner Kim Heard. Look at how beautiful it is:

I do love to make cards, but I usually get carried away with the bulkiness of embellishments, so I usually just stick them in a box or a gift bag, and these ones are no exception! 🙂 Here are two I made based on the sketch:

Both cards were made using the same design. I started with two layers and added some distressing and chalk ink from my stash. The green is a Tsukinedo Dew Drop ink pad in Ocean Oasis, and the Pink is the Prima Old Rose one. I used both chalk inks on the tickets, banners, and the green on the Kaisercraft wood doilies as well.

I added some a doily and some floral die cuts that I cut from the Prima Havana papers. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard coins (“Smile” on this card, and “Cherish” on the other one.) from my stash. I wanted them to look like pennies so I added some copper wax paste and the green chalk inkl.

To finish off the cards, I added some black and white splatters of India ink.

Here’s the other card- same design, just different papers, and slightly different elements.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month. Details here in the Facebook community.

We’d love it if you used the kits to join the challenges, but if you aren’t already a subscriber, you can still play along with your own supplies. However, consider subscribing! http://tresjoliekits.com/services/

We do have a couple of August card kits still available here!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This is Me- Sketch Layout by Ginny

Hi all, today I’m sharing my layout I created based on this months challenge sketch.
Kim has created another lovely sketch which fits the August kit perfectly.

I just loved the gorgeous papers in the kit this month, some soft and then some bright and bold.
A lot of these papers were perfect for fussy cutting, creating more elements to use on your layouts and to help create depth.
As usual the kit has been put together with perfectly coordinated embellishments there are flowers rom 48 & Market and Prima. I nice selection of chippies and resin to feature on your pages.
What I love about these kits is the amount of paper you get! If like me you like layers and lots of them then these kits are perfect with lots of coordinated papers included.

So on to my sketch layout. This layout I used the Santorini papers but the softer sides. I kept it quite pink, soft and girlie.

This is the sketch. A lovely sketch open to interpretation but perfect with this kit.

Now I will show you a few close ups and a few notes on what I did with some items from the kit.
This month I have tried very hard to only use August kit products, with only the use of inks, gesso and embossing powders added. We will see how well I did at this as the month goes on! LOL

The music score chipboard piece I cut in half and embossed with a white embossing powder. I then slotted it into my torn paper layers.

We had a lovely pack of gems in some gorgeous colours. The pink ones were perfect for this page. I used them in groups of 3 around the layout. I always use the ‘rule of 3’, things just seem more balanced this way!

I used several different coordinated papers and tore them to get my rough shabby edges, I am not very good with cut edges!
I have then layered them up, showing a little bit of each paper from underneath the one on top.
I then layered some of the beautiful white flower lace in these paper layers as well. It looks so feminine and soft.

I did some faux stitching on this layout with a Distress Marker pen, oopps from my stash..
I drew the dashes around several edges of my paper layers, this is another very easy way to add a little detail to your layouts and perfect if you dont have a sowing machine or cant bare to actually sow on your papers!!

I used a combination of the 49 & Market flower, which are the bigger pink ones and then some smaller Prima flowers. You can see other places I have added the flower lace too.
I also used a punch in odd random places on the edge of my layers to add a little more detail.

* Prima: Santorin Collection: Enjoying the Sun

Card sketch

Hey everyone, it’s Kim. Today I am sharing the cards I made using the card kit and the sketch. I have to say, I’m not the best with cards, so it was good to have a sketch to follow. I’m not sure how that works though. I can create a sketch, but can’t create a card from scratch. Oh well, moving on.

Have you seen our card kit this month? It is amazing!! It features papers from Prima, a die and lots of fun embellishments. Take a look:

There are still  few kits available. You can do a single purchase here or you can subscribe here.

Here is the card sketch for the challenge this month. Make sure you join in on the fun. Post your entry for the card challenge in our Facebook Cafe.

You don’t have to be a kit subscriber to enter, just please don’t enter using products from another kit club.

Here are my takes on the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here is that pretty die and my flower cluster. I used the banner tag in the cluster for my sentiment instead of on the bottom.

For my center image on this card, I used the die cut twice and added the wood doily as the main piece. Then I added smaller flowers to accent it.

I love the bakers twine in the kit. The colors are perfect for this bright summery card kit. Plus there is plenty of card stock to make several cards or tags.

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

“Always Beautiful” Sketch Challenge By Heather Thompson

Hello All, another sketch this month from Tres Jolie so beautiful and elegant.  This sketch showcases elements that could be used from the main kit.

Here is my take on the sketch, I loved the different elements from the paper and did a fair amount of fussy cutting. I am not big fan on detail cutting but some of the papers are just perfect for that.

August Sketch Layout with Rae

Hello, friends!

This month our design team will be sharing their projects made with the August scrapbooking, card, and mixed media kits.

Today I’m sharing a project that I made using the August scrapbooking kit along with this beautiful sketch designed by owner, Kim Heard:

Here’s my take on it:

I used papers from both collections from the kit: the Prima Marketing Santorini paper is the main paper, and I ripped a piece of the blue Mintay 7th Heaven paper. The rest of the layers are a combination of both lines.

I cut the piece of musical notes chipboard into two parts so it would be long enough to flow across the page under the cluster. I kept the treatment simple by adding some rose gold wax paste from my stash.

I added many flowers, all from the kit. And, under the flowers I added the Prima Marketing Say it in Crystals. To add elements from the sketch, I used a doily die with printer paper, and some chipboard flourishes.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog this Saturday! I hope you can join us for the sketch challenge this month! Here’s the link to where you can post your projects: CHALLENGE ALBUM. We can’t wait to see what you create!
