Hello everyone ! so happy to share new creations with brand new November kit ! Today I am sharing a layout made with the Scrapbook kit and a few things from the MM kit.   This paper is so beautiful with the 2 big butterflies that I didn’t want to hide them.  That is why I tried to keep it simple.  On the background I used the stamp from AB Studio and painted them with Watercolor from my stash.  I chose colors that matched my photo.  The die cut flowers you see behind the photo were made with a friend’s die cut I tried on my scrapbook weekend. I cut the tag from one of the AB Studio papers.  I added some flowers and Art Stones.

Here are some close-ups :

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.

June Sketch Challenge Winner, and a layout with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I have a couple of things to share with you. First is the winner of our June sketch challenge: Donna Sergent! Take a look at this beautiful layout:

We LOVED the vintage vibe Donna created with this layout of a sweet young couple. The treatment of the chipboard frame looks amazing! The bits of ephemera and that cameo are perfect, not to mention those butterflies! Congrats, Donna! Your prize will be shipped with your next kit!

And, thanks to all who played along! We were blown away at all the gorgeous entries! Be sure to join us for our July mood board challenge!

I’m also sharing my first project made with the July scrapbooking kit, featuring the lovely Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper collection. For this layout I used the June Sketchabilities sketch.

I started out by cutting up the “wood” panel background paper in strips along wood lines, then I used a paper distress and added some brown distress ink along the edges for added dimension.

For my layers, I added the doilies from the kit, some paper layers, and added the Prima Marketing resin frame to the picture. I topped of the layers with butterflies I cut from one of the papers, the cream and purple 49 and Market flowers, as well as some small coordinating flowers from my stash. I also added the title “Shine” from my stash as well, which is a Dusty Attic piece that treated by adding some wax paste.

I added some stenciling of bricks to peek out from under the design. I used white crackle paste, then lightly used a foam applicator with brown distress ink over the crackles after the paste was dry.

I treated the Dusty Attic chipboard scroll by covering it with a thick layer of the Nuvo drops from the kit. While wet, I added a combination of gold and black embossing powder while the Nuvo drops will till wet, then used a heat tool to dry it- I let it bubble up to create this distressed old metal look.

I added the leaves under the flower cluster before gluing on the chipboard to the paper to create more dimension.

For this bottom cluster I added the smaller Prima resin frame, a tiny purple flower from my stash, and a Lemoncraft flair button to repeat some of the features from the main cluster on the layout.

Mixed Media Monday

Hey everyone Kim here. I’m back today to share my project from the Mixed Media Kit. I love this kit because it’s unlike other mixed media kits, where you just get the mediums. This kit gives you a project to complete, so you can use the mediums in the kit right away.

Let’s take a look at this month’s kit:

It’s got alcohol inks (the colors make a nice rusted patina effect), texture paste, bling and a wonderful resin butterfly project to use all your mediums on.

Here is what I created using one of the big butterflies in the kit:

How about a look at the back of it:

I first mixed the texture paste with a fair amount of the 13@rts Magic powder. This will get very thick, and it won’t spread smoothly (that’s the whole purpose). It will give lots of texture.

Once the paste dried, I randomly added the alcohol ink. I started with the browns, then added the patina color.

 

Here is a close up to see the texture:

 

For the inside of the wings, I used some wax from my stash and just melted it on the inside.

I took the glass beads that were in the kit and used those to add texture and depth to the body of the butterfly:

I used the same techniques on the base, and then wrapped it with the bling from the kit:

 

Hope you liked my little explanation of my Mixed Media Monday project.

Here is my weekly tip: When layering your color mediums, always start with your lightest color and if possible, dry between layers.

We still have some kits available, so stop by here and subscribe. We also have individual kits for sale here.

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.
