Shabby Chic Greetings Cards by Ginny

Hello all, Ginny here with you today…..

This month I had the card kit from Tres Jolie Kits to play with…. I am not a regular card maker but I have to say I really enjoyed creating these!
I have made two sets of cards, the second I will show you later in the month.
The card kit features Prima Amelia Rose, beautiful papers, with embellishments from Prima, 49 & Market, Darice and Creative Embellishments.

 

Here are some photos of the cards:

 

 

 

Now I will show a step by step process for creating them.

 

Use the white blank cards from the Card kit……

I chose 4 different patterned papers from the Amelia Rose paper pad.
I trimmed the first paper to fit the front of the card making it very slightly smaller then the card size.

Each paper layer after that I made lightly smaller then the previous to create the different layers.

I distressed all the edges and the final layer I tore into to really distress it!

Stick the first two layers onto the front of the card

And the third….

The fourth layer I wrapped the seam binding around it length ways and tied into a bow…….

….and then glue it on top of the other layers.

I wanted to create a decoupage effect with some fussy cutting from the papers. I cut four pieces of similar flower clusters from the floral paper.

With my starting point in place with my chosen main flower I then started adding my decoupage layers next to it, with the use of tiny small foam pads.

If you are layering up amongst flowers you may need to double pads up at one end to get the piece to sit flat.

I then added the next decoupage layer in order of size on top of the first…..

At this point I also started to add more small flowers and the leaves.

The last paper decoupage layer was added…

…along with another small flower and leaf.

I added a couple of single fussy cut flowers to the background before adding my title greeting.

The chipboard titles were embossed with white embossing powder.

Here are the products used on these cards

* Prima Amelia Rose A4 paper pad
* 49 & Market Garden Seeds Watermelon
* Creative embellishments chipboard – Sentimental Words
* Darice Cards & Envelopes
* Tres Jolie Seam Binding

November Moodboard by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !! Have you seen this month’s Moodboard ? It is gorgeous and I created a layout with the Mixed Media kit and parts of the Scrapbook kit.

It took me a while to decide how I was going to place my 3 circles (Embroidery Hoops) Here is how it ended up.  I painted all 3 with White Gesso and used AB Studio’s stencil from the Scrapbook kit on the surface.  I mixed Finnabair’s Icing Paste with water and put some on the 3 circles. I then added some texture with AB Studio’s rubber stamp.  When everything was done I felt it needed something more, that is why I put the circles on a background paper where I used the Prima stencil with the Icing Paste.

Here you can see I painted the metal gears and the key chipboard with White Gesso and added beautiful flowers.  I finished off with Arts Stones. The small white words and the round title are from my stash.

Scrapbook Kit Spotlight

Hello, friends!

Today on the blog we are going to get up close and personal with the monthly scrapbook kit. Let’s take a look at what’s in the November kit:

The month, the papers in the kit are from the beautiful Dreamland collection from AB Studio, an international company in Poland, designed by Aga Baraniak. These papers are amazingly gorgeous, and there are MANY images to fussy cut, which can add so much dimension to your layouts.

In addition to many beautiful floral images, there are many options with these papers to create masculine layouts, which really makes them ideal for so many projects.

The one thing that you will notice about Tres Jolie scrapbook kits is that there is an abundance of embellishments- you can easily create 4-5 layouts, possibly using a minimal amount of your own supplies! There is almost always 3 different sets of flowers and many perfectly coordinated items! To see the entire kit up close, if you haven’t already watched the kit contents video for November, here it is:

So far on the blog this month, our design team has shown what you can do with some of the items from the scrapbook kit:

Annie cut out a tag from the papers and used the AB Studio flower stamp  to create some wonderful layers.

Rae cut out many tags and floral elements to create a back drop for the photo, tucking in the patina gears and Prima clock, added some of the lace trim under the photo, and added the yellow and green 49 and Market flowers.

Ginny also used the AB Studio stamp to create a rustic layout, keeping the Creative Embellishments chipboard (feathers and keys) in their “naked” state, adding the lace, Prima clocks and the Kraft color 49 and Market flowers and elements for this design.

As you can see, there are so many ways to use this kit that is chock full of amazing products this month, and every month! Be sure to check out the blog frequently for more spotlight videos and inspiration from our design team!

Birthday Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

I have to admit, cards and tags weren’t my thing to begin with, but I am really getting into them now. Especially using these kits. Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of tags and cards. It also have a set of cards with envelopes.  Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a Birthday Tag and Card set.

How about some close ups:

I cut the tag out of the copper cardstock in the kit. Then I created a couple of layers of paper and cardstock and more paper. I fussy cut a few flowers from a sheet of the paper and added it in between my layers. I also added some of the tickets from the kit on top of the layers

The chipboard title and bling are from the kit and I just painted it with black gesso. The oval from is from my stash. I used a couple layers of black gesso, then randomly sprinkled some pink embossing powder on it.

For the mini card, it was done pretty much the same as the tag. I used the copper cardstock as a base, added some layers of paper and embellished with flowers, bling and a frame from my stash. Instead of using black gesso on the frame I used white. I still added the pink embossing powder. The limited edition title is also from my stash.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to follow us on all our various Social Media outlets.

This Place

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 :

Notes & Thoughts … a masculine layout by Ginny

 

 

Hello all!

This is my last project this month for the October Scrapbook Kit at Tres Jolie Kits.

I have created a masculine page this time, I know most of the time I stick to the floral shabby chic style layout but I do like to do the occasional masculine layout, especially as I do have a son to scrap about!
I have used a reverse side of one of the beautiful papers in the kit… and I think this layout puts a completely different spin on this kit… looking at the kit photo you wouldn’t think you could create a layout like this but you can!
Its always good to see how these beautiful kits can also be used for masculine layouts – don’t forget the boys!!! LOL

 

 

I have photo process below for you to show you how I created this layout.

 

 

I started with the reverse of one of the floral 13Arts papers, I do love these black neutral papers, they are so easy to use for masculine pages. I did brush over some clear gesso to prepare the pare for lots of misting!
I used the Ayeeda mist in the kit over the background paper, I sprayed it and also undid the top and flicked the inner tube over the layout to get the splats.

 

 

The chipboard I altered using a VerDay Patina set. I used the Bronze colour, painted it over the chipboard and then added the patina solution in different places to create the mottled/ old metal effect over the chipboard. Allow to dry naturally.

 

 

Going back to the background paper now its dry, I used the Prima stencil from the kit and added areas of white texture paste over the paper.

 

 

 

Next I splattered a lot of white gesso over the layout, spritzed it with water and picked the paper up upright and allowed all the liquids to ‘run’ on the paper. Dry with a heat tool.

 

 

Next I splattered some Color Bloom Antique Gold mist over the background. Again I take the lid out and use the inner tube to flick the colour over.

 

When dry I then rubbed some Viva Inka Gold over some of the raised texture paste areas with my finger.

 

 

The photo I layered up on 3 distressed patterned paper layers, all slightly off set to each other.
I inked the edges up with an archival ink,

 

 

Now its time to put the layout together. I placed the photo centrally and added the chipboard words from the 12×12 chipboard sheet – I loved that sheet! I left these chipboard words in their nude state.

 

 

The big chipboard scroll I cut into two – basically one piece was 2/3 rds. of the total chipboard piece and the part I cut off was 1/3rd of it.
I then slotted the bigger piece under the photo layers on the right and the smaller piece in the photo layers on the left.

 

 

 

I added more chipboard words on top of the scroll and then added the blue and beige flowers from the kit! It still looks quite masculine though!

 

I added a little detail with items from my stash, some oval and teardrop druzzy beads and some seed beads. I just drop the seed beads into some gel medium and leave to dry.

 

I found these teal buttons whilst looking for the seed beads and thought they were perfect for the colour scheme so I added a couple of those under the layers too to finish the layout off.

 

Here are some close ups of the layout…..

 

 

 

Here is the October Scrapbook Kit …….

…….can you believe this layout came from this kit?!?!? – It did!!

‘This is a happy day’ by Ginny

 

Ginny here with you today sharing another project using the Tres Jolie October Kit.

This kit features papers from 13 Arts and Prima Marketing with some beautiful embellishments, making this a beautiful kit to work with and to create some lovely pages full of memories! This layout features my DD, another photo from our holiday in Cornwall. We visited Padstow one day and did some crabbing in the harbour. Padstow is famous for Rick Stein’s famous fish and chip shop and restaurant. The harbour was lined with ladies doing hair braiding and of course Holly wanted her hair braided. Holly has really long hair so at a pound an inch it was rather a lot of money! But having said that the braid lasted weeks and so she got her monies worth!!

 

 

I love using a mix of coloured and black and white photos on the same layout. The coloured photo on this layout has remained the focal point but then your eye drifts along into the black and white photo. I dont know about you but sometimes I prefer my photos in black and white. Here’s a little tip, if you are struggling to find a photo to fit a coloured scheme or papers, print your photo in black and white and it will go with any colour scheme/papers.

 

I used lots of layers on this layout. I used 3 background papers. As I added each paper layer they got trimmed down a little smaller then the previous one so about a cm shows of each layer around the edge. All the edges were then distressed.

 

The photos were layered up on their own distressed mat layer. I used the card frame that came with the Prima flower set and cut the corners up and used these as layers and corners on some corners of the two photos.

You can also see that I did some faux stitching with a pen around the edge of these background paper layers.

 

The gorgeous lace just runs under the bottom edge of the photos. I cut a small oval of patterned paper to fit the silver frame and glued that it.

 

The title phrases are also distressed round the edges and had a little Toffee archival ink around the edges. These I curved and glued them onto the layout so they remained in a bowed position like a banner.

I added some of the journal cards as background photo layers too…..

I have added a couple of extra flowers from my stash to this layout as I do love flower overload! The flower clusters were finished off with the pretty lace leaves and the rose buds from the kit.

“Friends” Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Today I am sharing a last layout I made with the October kit.

I kept this layout fairly simple because I just feel in love with this piece of paper from the 13 Arts paper from the Rose Fields collection. I started out by cutting the paper slightly and distressed the edges. Next, I added some faux stitching using a sewing wheel and a fine point black marker.

I also added some stenciling using a large distressed circle stencil- I added white crackle paste, then painted on some of the 13 Arts turquoise spray from the kit.

Under the picture, I added some of the cutouts from the 13 Arts elements sheet. I used a piece of the Prima paper for a photo mat, and some lace from my stash.

 

I added to flower clusters, some of the blue ones are from my stash. In this closeup, you can one of the metal frames from the kit peeking from under the photo. I added some of the Prima paper with numbers to it after painting it with gesso and I added some white gold wax paste.

I used a couple of different shades of green chalk ink to the 13 Arts chipboard leaves. I cut them to fit under the flowers. I sprayed the chipboard title with the turquoise spray. I love that the 13 Arts chipboard is white- it cuts out the first step of paint it! 🙂

On the other side of the cluster I added a piece of the Dusty Attic chipboard that I added some white gold wax paste to.Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

“Just You” Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday!

Today I am sharing a layout I made based on the October sketch created by Kim:

Isn’t that sketch lovely?

Here’s my interpretation of the sketch:

This 13 Arts “Rose Fields” paper is beyond gorgeous! I adore the different shades of pinks mixed with black and white with hints of green. You MUST get this kit if you are not a subscriber!

I started out with cutting down and distressing the “wood plank” paper so I could see a lot of the black of the first layer, as I wanted to add some elegant black accents and I wanted them to pop.

I added the white lace across the layout as the sketch has that design element, and then built my layers around the photo. I used some Prima Misty Rose paper for a mat, then added it to the gold frame that came in one of the Prima flower packs.I added some stamping to peek from under the right side of the photo, then added some of the chipboard flowers which I inked black.

On the left side of the cluster, I added some cut outs from the Rose Fields paper, and a doily die cut. I added another piece of chipboard that I inked black as well as the title, which I inked using a peachy colored chalk ink.  I just love how much chipboard came int he kit this month! Then I added my flowers and some butterflies from my stash.

Lastly, I added the cluster to the lower left side of the layout, keeping it simple, replicating the colors and elements from the top cluster- black chipboard swirl, flower, and another butterfly from my stash, from the Prima Misty Rose collection.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Please join us in this sketch challenge this month. Anyone can play along!  https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.275578576627912&type=3
