September Happenings

Hey everyone, Kim here. Boy do we have a bunch going on for September. Hmm…where do I start. Oh I know.

First, I want to say a big thank you and a fond farewell to Heather.

She happily agreed to be our first guest DT member. For the past 3 months, she has wowed you with her projects and videos. Stay tuned, she has a few more fab projects to share before the month is over.

Thanks so much Heather. I’m sure you will see her around the Cafe.

Next up, we have a new guest DT member joining us for the next 3 months. Let’s welcome Annie Carignan

Annie will start with our September kit. If you aren’t familiar with her work, let me tell you she is amazing. I have seen her projects with the September scrapbook kit and they are outstanding.

Annie will be on the blog later this week to do a formal introduction of herself, so make sure you stop by and give her a warm welcome.

Speaking of the September kit, if you are a subscriber kits will begin shipping this week. Most of you will probably have them for the long weekend. If you want in on any of the kits, subscribe now.

How about a sneak peek of the scrapbook kit:

Mintay Layout with Ginny

 

Hello all! Ginny here!

I’m back today with a layout created using the Mintay papers from the August main Scrapbook kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These papers are gorgeous!

Here is my layout:

 

I have also used the sketch again for this layout. For my layout the other day I turned the sketch around, this layout I have left in the format it was designed.

As usual my paper layers are all torn edges and they are inked too. I did the broad band across the middle with a lovely floral paper and highlighted it underneath with a piece of the blue lace.

 

 

The balloon chip board piece I have painted with gesso and then edged it with the same ink I inked the papers with.

 

 

My photo is layered up with some of the journal cards cut from the 12×12 paper. I curled some of the corners for extra detail.

 

 

I did a little fussy cutting of the pink flowers buds with the blue butterflies to add to my flower clusters.

 

 

My journaling (all be it small!) is fussy cut from the journal cards, distressed and inked.

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!
