June Sketch Layout with Ginny

Hello everyone!

Ginny here with you today, to share with you my sketch layout for the challenge this month here at Tres Jolie!

Here is the sketch:

 

Dont you agree it’s a gorgeous sketch to get the inspiration going? Carry on reading further down this blog post for details on how you can enter this months challenge.

Here is my interpretation of the sketch

Photo Tutorial

I have done a step by step photo tutorial of my process making this layout.

I chose my backing papers, this one – Misty Foils.

and this one – The Good news.

After trimming 1cm off from round all sides of the paper, I then heavily distressed it – to the point some of you will think I’ve torn it!

Layer this paper up on top of the ‘The Good News’ paper

I cut some small pieces of the lace, about 1 1/2″ and slotted them into the bigger gaps/tears round the edges of the top background paper. This is a cheat, it makes it look like there is a border of lace in between the background papers but saves you on the amount of lace used so you loads more lace for another project!

I used the chipboard piece, I painted it first with gesso and then when dry I heat embossed it with a white and silver embossing powder.

I placed my photo through the chipboard oval and glued it on the layout.

I cut a piece of the beautiful lace to fit the length of my top background paper and glued into position. I splatted the background with some drops of one of the alcohol inks from the Mixed Media kit.

I added a doily behind the photo and chipboard on the left.

I then used the pack of gorgeous pink paper roses ( I loved the leaves in this too)

I made an arrangement round the bottom left side of the photo/frame…

and a smaller one round the top right of the photo/frame

I bent the curled wires into a rounded shape

and added them into the flower clusters

I love these Shabby Chic Garden Treasures and used the ladder and the watering can in this layout.

I added the watering can to the left side of the layout, tucking it underneath some of the leaves.

Now for the little details… the microspheres I dropped into some gel medium dotted around the layout

I  tucked in some dusky red twine tied into bows into the flower clusters.

Lastly as sometimes happens when I design a page I start of not using texture paste and stencils and then by the end I decide I want to use it! This was one of those layouts, so at this point I then added patches of stencilling around the design.

Last thing on the layout was some random stamping with black distress ink. I think it just adds a bit more detail and depth to the background of the layout and makes the layout ‘pop’ .

And voila! a finished layout.

Fancy having a go yourself with the sketch?

So here is how to enter this months sketch challenge…

June Kit Sketch Challenge By Heather Thompson

Happy Memories

Hello All, today I want to share another page I made with the Tres Jolie Main Kit. I also added a few extras that came in the card kit. This is a picture of Maksim and I.  We had a night on the town while visiting over in England. A proper pub, a posh restaurant and the English hospitality and warmth.

I based this page of the sketch that Kim made for the June Kit.

I made a short video of the creative process, and the evolution of this page.

Here are a few close ups…..

Using various die-cuts from my stash, I used the 13@rts paper to add layers to the photo composition, along with fussy cutting elements from the “All Good Things”

We made so many happy memoires on our latest trip and the sketch gave me the inspiration to capture one of them. We hope to see you play along with the sketch this month with the fabulous June Kit.

“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.

Memory Lane Tags-June Card Kit By Heather Thompson

Hi all Heather here, I want to share with you my first project made with the June Kit from Tres Jolie. Using the paper pack from Fabscraps, I decieded to make some tags. I love making tags because they are so easy to just tie to that gift bag, no envelope no fuss.

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.

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.
