June Scrapbook kit layout with Ginny……

 

Hi Everyone!

It’s Ginny here with you today and I am going to share with you a layout I have created  using the June Tres Jolie Scrapbook kit

I loved these 13 Arts papers in this kit especially the darker neutral  coloured papers.

I used two of the papers for this layout, ‘Cold Days’ and ‘Days & Nights’. I also used the ‘All Good Things’ paper to fussy cut the feathers out from.

I used the darker paper as my background paper and tore the lighter one create the band across the middle.

You will see in the close ups I used a few other bits of fussy cutting around the layout too.

I wanted to create a dream catcher effect with the fussy cut feathers and combined it with the Prima flower vine to create this effect.

On the background I used a little texture paste, from the Mixed Media kit, with a Prima stencil.

I love the little watering can from The Prima Shabby Chic Treasures set.

I love the coloured water splats that are on the background of the lighter background paper, I arranged my layout to make sure I could see some of these in my design.

This cluster is fussy cut out of the ‘All Good Things’ paper and slotted behind my photo.

The photo I layered up on a roughly torn piece, that is just slightly bigger then my photo, from the other paper paper collection in the June Kit, Prima – Vintage Floral – Pink Promises. This was then mounted on a piece of cardboard (or use foam pads) to lift it up off the background papers to add a little definition.

I finished off by adding a couple of little paper flowers and the fussy cut leafy sprays.

A Sketch Layout with Rae

Hello crafty friends!

Yesterday was our reveal our first kit- it’s so pretty! Today, I’m sharing a layout I made based on the sketch for our monthly challenge. Kim, owner of Tres Jolie kits designed this sketch, filled with elegant and romantic details. Check it out:

And here’s my take on it:

The dark blue 13 Arts paper that I used for the background reminded me of the picture I used, so I started my layout knowing I was going to incorporate these dark elements into the sketch page. I really wanted to draw attention to the photo so I kept the dark paper and dark elements to a minimum, but gave the page a nice flow of the mixture of tones.

The lace peeking out from under the main paper layer is from the kit, but I used a couple of different blue mist sprays (Lindy’s Stamp Gang  Time Travel Teal, and Tibetan Poppy Teal) from my stash to give it the teal color. I did this because as I was building my design, incorporating a doily (from my stash) with the lace was a bit too unbalanced with all of the white.

Here’s a closeup that shows how the lace is two-tone with the different mists. And, you can see the embossing of the Creative Embellishments chipboard frame. I used WOW! Embossing Powder in Verdigris, which has an amazing two-toned color with the green and gold.

I did quite a bit of fussy cutting of the 13 Arts paper that I used for layers peeking from under the doily and flowers. There are some amazing leaves, flowers and feathers. I also cut a piece of the Prima paper that had some printed elements that I used under the picture.

I cut up the Prima beaded vine and used it in different sections of the layout, including the bottom left of the page to follow the sketch. I added blue pearls from my stash to complete the look.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Be sure to join us for our monthly challenge using this sketch. You can find more details about the challenge on Facebook in our Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe online community.

Introducing Ginny

Hi there!

I am so excited to be Guest Designing for Kim in her new venture with Tres Jolie Kits!

And you havent got long to wait now as the first kit reveal is on the 1st of June!!

You are going to love these kits that Kim has put together, full off beautiful papers, gorgeous embellishments and pretty flowers!

These kits are perfect for layouts, altered projects and cards as we are going to be showing you very soon!

But firstly a little bit about me…

 

My name is Ginny and I live in Monmouthshire, Wales in the UK with my family and my fur baby, Evie, a Labradoodle.

My two children and my dog are the main subjects in my scrapbooking. I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years having been introduced to it by my mum who is also a keen scrap booker and card maker. I been obsessed by it ever since. Scrapbooking joins together my love of photography and paper crafting and most importantly preserving those memories!

Apart from scrapbooking I love to do altered projects and canvases.

My style? – I would say it is romantic, floral, shabby chic and distressed, I do like the odd masculine page… I do have a son to scrap,  who dosent appreciate flowers on all of his layouts!

I do love using mixed media on my layouts, there nothing nicer then getting in a crafty mess and having mucky fingers and mists and paints splattered everywhere!

Introducing Kim

Hi everyone,

First let me welcome you all to Tres Jolie Kit Club. I’m Kim the owner and sometimes designer around here.

I’m so excited to be bringing you these kits. They have been a labor of love. A love of all things scrapbooking/crafting. I have created kits filled with all the latest products that are available. They are truly kits that I would love to receive each month. Just hang on another week for the reveal. If you have already subscribed, you kit will be going out later this week.

Let’s answer the question, who am I?

I live in the Midwest with my husband. We don’t have any children and we love to travel. We have both recently retired from Public Service and can now travel even more.

I began scrapbooking in 2001 after the death of my mother. I wanted to preserve all those memories in one place and I haven’t looked back. Currently, my scrapbooking consists of our travels, family history, current events with friends and family and lots of crazy selfies with the husband.

My style? That’s a good question. I love the romantic, shabby chic style, but I don’t always adhere to that. I like to mix it up with mediums and get my hands dirty too. One thing that you will always find on my layouts, flowers and chipboard.

How about a sneak peek? Here you go:

Make sure you come back tomorrow and meet more of the team. We will be introducing everyone all week long.

Don’t forget, we still have some subscription available. Those that subscribe before June 1st are eligible to win this:

That’s the full 12×12 paper pad of the Havana line from Prima. Along with coordinating embellishments. It will ship with the July 1st kit. So don’t miss out, head on over to our subscribe page and click that button.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

 

Design Team Introductions!

Hi, there!

First off, I just want to say that Kim, the owner of Tres Jolie Kits has put together some amazing kits that are filled with MANY beautiful things, and if you love gorgeous, elegant papers and embellishments, you will love these kits! We are so excited for our first reveal, June 1st! This week we are introducing our designers and guest designers, so be sure to check the blog every day this week so you can see who we are, and some sneak peeks of the projects we are working on.

 So, I’ll kick off the introductions: My name is Rae and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my family- husband, three kids, and cat. I used to be a high school English teacher, but now I work in the pharmaceutical science industry as an editor, and I get to do that from home!

Scrapbooking has been a huge part of my life for about 10 years now- I enjoy being creative and making pretty things.  I love to do layouts and altered projects. My favorite embellishment is FLOWERS, so I put them on 99% of my projects, even my masculine layouts. I don’t know how you would describe my style, but I love a sophisticated look with many small details! Here’s a sneak peek of a project that I have made with the June scrapbook kit that I think captures my style:

Be sure to check the blog tomorrow so you can meet another member of our design team and see another sneak peek of what you can buy in June!
