Friends layout with Ginny

Hello all,

It’s my last project of the month using the Tres Jolie July kit.

I have really enjoyed creating with this kit, I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the designs created by our DT.

My layout this time is based around a central design. It is a simple layout using a texture base stencilled background and some embellishments framing the photo.

I used one of the plain dotty papers for a background paper.

My focal background paper I trimmed 1cm off on two sides to reduce it enough in size to see a border of the dotty paper when it is mounted on it.
I punched the edge in random places around the paper and then distressed the edges.

I chose a lovely flourish stencil (not sure of the brand of this one from my stash) and designed the stencilling so that when I add the central design some of the stencilling will show out from under the edges.

My photo is layered on a neutral patterned paper with the doilies and overlapped on the chipboard piece that has been heat embossed with a white embossing powder.

I then added the flowers, leaves, badges, some metals and Nuvo drops around the layout to finish it.

Here are some close ups of the finished layout.

I again used some fussy cut butterflies cut from that gorgeous paper full of them!

The title was a chippie from my stash but was perfect for this layout so I had to use it. It is just simply covered with a couple coats of white gesso.

Everything on this layout is from the July Scrapbook Kit except the metal cogs (which are from the Mixed Media Kit) and the chippy title. The texture paste is from the June Mixed Media kit.#

“Dream” Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!

Today I’m sharing the last layout I made with the beautiful July scrapbooking kit. I’ve had my eye on this picture I found on Pinterest for a layout for quite some time, and this kit was perfect to showcase it with the Violet Silence papers by Lemoncraft!

I started the layout by ripping the purple sheet, and the adding it to the ivory sheet of paper. I created some background texture with a script stamp and purple pigment ink, and then a music notes stencil and clear texture paste.

I cut a piece of chipboard into a circle frame, and then added some of the Nuvo drops to the circle in a thick layer, then added some white embossing powder for a textured, distressed look.

I was out of the purple flowers from the kit so I added some form my stash to coordinate with the ivory 49 and Market flowers. I tore apart some of the ivory flowers to use the inside layers for some smaller sizes.

 

I decided to cut up the gold trim from the kit. I cut the small flowers away from the scallop part of the trim- I used that as a layer under my photo mat. I placed the smaller flowers to peek out from under the flower clusters, and also to add to the proximity of the title from my stash,

Fussy cut layout with Ginny

Hello all,

Ginny here today with a layout made with the Tres Jolie July Kit.

This one I think is my favourite one from this kit that I have created this month.
I did some fussy cutting from the beautiful Lemoncraft papers to create layers and detail on this page…

I used 2 identical photos on this layout. One I kept whole and the other I cut in half! Shock horror!
The cut one I layered either side of the whole, slightly offsetting it.

These papers from Lemoncraft were perfect for fussy cutting! I cut out two large flower clusters and used these either side of my photos.
The photos and these two layers are set up of the page using cardboard but you could use foam pads.
I do like a little dimension to my pages. Lifting layers off the page also allows you to slot embellishments under layers to soften edges and create a real 3d effect.

You dont need to use too many embellishments to create a pretty and lovely looking layout. This layout doesn’t really have much on it but with the choice of papers and the fussy cutting it looks a full and covered page.

I used the doily under the photos as another layer and added some stamping with a stamp from my collection to add extra detail, another feature with out having to use an embellishment, so if your near the end of your kit and struggling for embellishments, remember things like stamping to fill a layout out.

I did some pink splattering in the background using the pink PearlEx mixed with water and a paint brush, I cut the some little flowers out of the beautiful gold lace and stuck them around the layout too!

Im a real fan of the NuvoCrystal drops and all the lovely colours they come in. The one in the kit is called Buttermilk. I used the Nuvo around the layout with the odd drop here and there!
The crystal drops are from my stash but just thought they added a beautiful effect to the design and gave it a bit of extra bling. You can never have too much bling!!!!!

“#beautiful” Layout with Rae using for the Mood Board Challenge

Hello, and Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m sharing a layout I made for the Mood Board Challenge using the July kit.

Here’s the mood board:

I chose to use some of the Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper that had pink flowers on it to coordinate with the hot pink Kaisercraft flowers. I was inspired by the polka dot fabric in one of the mood board pictures, so I repeated the use of circles by adding a circle stencil, a doily, a piece of Lemoncraft flair, polka dot paper, and adding dots to the chipboard frame (from my stash) and some purple and green berries (also from my stash).

I tore apart the 49 and Market ivory flowers and added the Kaisercraft hot pink flowers to make those pink flowers POP. I also added some pink chalk ink to the ivory flowers.

This closeup below gives a good view of the paper layers, and shows how the flower cluster and leaves, as well as the pink lace chipboard are a contrast to the softness of the hues of the papers.

The frame under the picture is a Dusty Attic chipboard frame from my stash, but really, any oval frame would do the job here. I painted it white, added some purple pigment ink for a distressed look to blend with the papers, and added accents with the Nuvo drops from the kit. If you haven’t had the chance to try Nuvo drops, you NEED to! They are self-leveling, so they will dry dimensional, but not uneven.

 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you get a chance to join us for the mood board challenge! You do not have to be a subscriber to join the fun, but if you wanted to use the July kit, there are still some available HERE.

Gold layout with Ginny

It’s Friday again… and I’m back with another layout for you from the gorgeous July kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

I have used the natural cream colours in the kit on this layout highlighted with the gold….. have you seen that gold lace in the kit yet? It’s gorgeous!!

Here is the layout

I have some photos for you of my process in creating this layout.
So lets get on and show you.

Start off by choosing a background paper and a feature paper. Cut the second paper to make a border down the middle. Distress the edges and ink all edges on both papers. Stick 2nd paper down the middle, mine is slightly offset from the middle.

Cut a strip of the GORGEOUS gold lace and stick down overlapping the left hand edge of paper 2.

Next choose a stencil and using white texture paste spread in patches over the layout where you ant the stencilling to show.

So you end up with something like this.

Fit the chosen photo on the back of the biggest shabby white frame.
And hot glue onto the layout.

I love this butterfly sheet…. cut out 3 butterflies of choice.

I used the beige flowers from the kit and started to arrange on the layout with the butterflies.
The smaller shabby frame I glued to the lower right side of the design to balance it.

I had some Viva Inka Gold in my stash which using my finger I have rubbed over the higher parts of the pattern on the shabby frames.

I then used a stamp from my stash and some Toffee Versafine ink….

….. and stamped down the edge of paper 2.
I added some Nuvo in groups of 3 drops…..

…… and dropped some microsphere beads into it whilst it was still wet to create berries.

I then stamped some flourishes from a stamp out of my stash . Using stamps is a great way to create extra embellishments or even just embellishments in a colour to fit in with what you are creating. They help to fill out a design or add an extra feature.

Fussy cut the flourishes out.

Add them to the flower clusters on the layout.

I also stamped a title verse and fussy cut that out and added to the layout.

And voila!!

I love the neutral colour tones to this layout from a very predominate purple kit!

Hope you like it too!

Here are some close ups….

Shabby Chic Blank Layout By Heather Thompson

I was asked to make a gift for a mother and her new baby, I thought I would make a pretty layout and leave the photo blank, having kids of my own, I always tried to get the one special picture, just them and me. So this a shabby chic layout, only given the information of a little bit of pink white and silver. Hopefully this will work. Tres Jolie 12x12 page.jpg

Here is a short video for you all.

I hope you enjoy how elegant this all came together. Using very few supplies from my own stash, I created this beautiful page. Here are a few close-ups

Mood Board Layout

Hey everyone,

I’m sharing the layout I created using this months mood board challenge. I love jump starting my creative process with all kinds of challenges. Sketches and Mood Boards are my 2 favorites. So you will see a lot of those challenges here at Tres Jolie.

Here is the July Mood Board:

You can be inspired by all or just one of the photos or just the overall mood. Just a hint. The colors match perfectly to our July kit.

Here is my layout:

I was inspired by the overall mood, the colors and the frames.

Here are some close-ups:

This is my floral cluster in the top right corner. You can see the frame I used. I cut that tiny gold flower from the lace in the kit. I did some stamping in black and random splattering with some mist.

 

Here you can see more splatter, stamping and pieces of the gold lace. I love that you don’t have to do a lot to the background of this paper.

I did some layering behind the photo. The doily is included in the kit.

Here is a list of mist and embossing powders that I used while working with this kit. These are all from Lindy’s.

Mist:

Tea Pot Purple

Sweet Violet Purple

Hottie Patottie Hot Pink

Embossing Powder:

Hi Maintenance Magenta

Holly Hock Scarlet Plum

Orbit Olive Gold

 

That’s all I have today, but make sure you keep coming back to see what our designer have in store for you.

 

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.

Mood Board Challenge layout By Ginny Hickmott

Hello all,

Welcome to the gorgeous July Tres Jolie Kit!

It’s a beautiful kit, I love these papers from Lemoncraft and the pretty purple colours in them!

Today I’m sharing my layout I created based from the mood board challenge this month.
This mood board was gorgeous too! I based my layout using the top right photo on the mood board keeping to the paler colours. More details on the challenge at the end of this post.

Here s the mood board…. who cannot get inspiration from this
!?

I loved the wood panel paper and distressed the edges heavily and inked with a sandy brown ink pad.
I backed this paper onto a plainer lilac background paper. You can see I have used a stapler to fix the top paper to the background paper. This is a fun different way to attach papers together and adds a little different detail to the layout.

I used paper distressed edged paper layers of various size oblongs to back my photo on. These were all inked as well and layered up using the doilies. The doilies are cut in half so I do not waste any unnecessarily put under the other papers but just the cut edge slipped under a paper. I used some washi tape from my stash just to add a little more butterfly detail.

The 49 & Market flowers are just divine. And the leaves that came with them are super too!
I clustered these up together using the rule of 3, to balance the layout.

I added some small drops of Nuvo to the leaves and used the badges in the clusters too.

Products used on this layout.

From the Kit:

* Lemoncraft: Violet Silence Paper collection
* 49 & Market: Shimmer & Shine Flowers: Lilac Jardin Secret
* Nuvo Crystal Drops: Buttermilk
* Lemoncraft: Violet Silence: Buttons/Badge
Doilies

From my stash:

* Prima Marketing: washi Tape
* Versofine: Archival dry pigment Ink: Toffee

There is a sheet in the kit absolutely full of butterflies! Perfect to fussy cut out and add to your flower clusters like I have on my layout. The only problem is choosing which ones to use!

I hope your inspired to join in with this mood board challenge this month with us!
Simply create a layout with inspiration then from the mood board, and add a photo of your finished layout onto the Mood Board Challenge Album on the Tres Jolie Club Café Facebook page.
We look forward to seing your creations!
