“Precious” Layout with Rae

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a layout I made using the lovely June scrapbooking kit. I have a whole collection of layout that I do using vintage images just for fun, and this is my latest one. I found this vintage image on Pinterest, which is my go-to source for vintage photos.

I kept this layout pretty simple- I didn’t do any stamping or stenciling, which is kind of unusual for me, but I LOVE the 13 Arts and Prima Marketing papers so much, I just wanted to let the beauty of shine through.

I started by ripping the blue 13 Arts paper, and adding it to the Prima Marketing blue rose paper. I distressed the paper edges with a paper distresser, and some grey ink.

I added some more layers using a die cut doily, and two tags that I cut free hand from the Prima Marketing paper. I added some thin twine to the tags from my stash. I cut some of the 13 Arts dark grey wood paper and added some lace to the photo mat. I like the balance it brings between the dark photo and paper and how it flows with the lighter papers of the background.

In this closeup you can see that I added the appliques to my flower clusters. I also added the Creative Embellishments berry chipboard- I inked the chipboard black, and then added some fine embossing powder in gold, intentionally leaving some parts without the powder to give the chipboard a distressed look.

Here’s a closer look at one of my flower/embellishment clusters where you can also see the Prima Marketing resin feathers. The blue flower is from my stash, but the pink ones, along with the leaves are from kit, from Little Birdie.

Sketch Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone, it’s Kim here. Today is what I’m going to call sketch challenge Monday (later to be renamed challenge Monday). I’m going to reveal my take on the sketch.

Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on it:

Of course I used our gorgeous June kit which just revealed here . It’s filled with beautiful papers from 13@rts and Prima. Plus fun embellishments from Creative Embellishments and more Prima goodies.

How about some close-ups:

I took the frame and turned it on it’s side. I also embossed it with some Lindy’s embossing powder. I did a bit of background stamping.

 

I used a couple different sized flowers in my cluster. Plus I stuck the watering can in there. I loved the look of it. I added some lace to mimic the lace in the sketch. The words were cut from the die cut piece of paper.

This is my smaller cluster in the lower left had side of the page. I built it around the water pump. More background stamping, a flower, resin feather and word cut from the die cut paper.

Here is my little tip for the week: I have found that Lindy’s Flat Fabio C’est la Vie Cerise and Lindy’s Starburst Mist Tibetan Poppy Teal are great matches for the papers in this kit. If you have those in your stash try them out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the sketch. Don’t forget to load your entries in the sketch challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

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.

Welcome to Tres Jolie Kit Club

Hi everyone, welcome to Tres Jolie. We are a new monthly kit club and we are so excited to have you joining us. Each month we will have 3 new kits featuring the best we can find in the crafting community.

So let me tell you a bit about our kits and what makes them different from the other kit clubs.

First is our scrapbook kit, it will be contain anywhere from 10-12 sheets of shabby chic, vintage romantic style patterned papers. These papers are going to be from the top companies, both local and international. Add to that embellishments selected to perfectly compliment those papers. That will include flowers, chipboard, metal, resin, lace or whatever else we can find. Doesn’t that all sound yummy?

Next up we have our cards, tags and more kit. That’s right a kit specifically for that make cards and tags. This kit will alternate between cardstock or tags as the base. It will always include patterned paper and embellishments to build upon that base. What are Cards and tags without flowers, bling, stamps and ink. Who knows, we may even slip in a die (think Julie Nutting dolls) one month. What do you say card makers?

Last, but definitely not least is the mixed media kit. It’s kinda like mixed media with a project. Don’t you hate getting a bunch of mixed media and nothing to try it out on? Not with this kit. It comes with the mediums and a project to use them on. That’s right, you get to get in there and get your hands dirty the minute you finish opening this kit.

The other thing that’s different about our kit club is our dedication to our subscribers. There will be “perks” that as a subscriber only you will be privy too. Sometimes, there may even be a little something extra in your kit.

Our kits will begin shipping in May. For all the details on how to subscribe and shipping please click on the subscribe tab at the top of the page. Also visit the FAQ page for any other questions. If you still can’t find the answer, please email me at Kim@tresjoliekits.com

I know this has been a very wordy post, so I will leave you with a preview of our first kit.
