Carpe Diem by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! Here is a new layout with September Scrapbook Kit.

Yes ! another beach layout !

For this background I used a little bit of Clear Gesso before I put Modeling Paste with a stencil from my stash.  I used the stamp all around the layout. I used the spray from the kit on the chipboard also included in the kit.  I cut it in half so i could use it on top and bottom of my photo.  I used flowers and embellishments from the kit and some from my stash too, I wanted Blue on this layout to go with the paper, the chipboard and the photo.

 

 

 

 

thanks for looking !

Family layout by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to share a layout made with beautiful September Scrapbook Kit :

This was a pretty simple layout to make, no mediums, just paper and embellishments !  I used the Rice paper and teared it a bit and adhered it on the background paper.  I cut out a quote from one of the paper and created a cascade with flowers. Added embellishments and that was it ! I love the result !

 

Here are some close-ups :

Beach, Sun and Sand by Annie

Hello everyone ! I am back today with another layout made with August Scrapbook Kit :

I really loved doing this layout, I love it !

The first thing I did is apply White Gesso mixed with water on the surface because I wanted to do a wash over the patterns.  I then teared a peace of patterned paper and adhered it in the middle.

After that I used the Stencil included in the kit with Modeling Paste.  I put a coat of Clear Gesso on it because I knew I would use Watercolor.

I made different layers with different papers, a frame and vellum included in the flower package. I like creating a 3D effect with peaces of cardstock that I recycle from boxes or packages.  This time I used watercolor after everything was in place.  At the very end I added some Art Stones and chipboards from my stash for the title.

Journal Spread with Cards, Tags and more Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to present a Journal Spread I made while I was camping.  I had brought my Journal with me, remember the journal we had in a previous kit ?

Here is the beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit :

Here is the kit content :

Cards, Tags and More Kit:

  1. Ciao Bella – Romantic Time 12×12 Paper Pack
  2. Ciao Bella – Rice Paper – Romantic Time – Endless Love
  3. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Neutral Beauty
  4. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Sweet Species
  5. Scrapaholics – Chipboard – Ivy vine spray set
  6. Scrapaholics – Chipboard -Leafy Flourish set 2
  7. Creative Embellishments – Chipboard – Mini Frames
  8. Simplicity – Lace
I was inspired by the Rice Paper, I thought it would make a gorgeous  background in my album.  I put a coat of Matt Gel to adhere it on the background.
 

I adhered peaces of Lace too in the middle also with Gel.

 

Once the gel was dry, I used some White Gesso mixed with water and did like a wash on the surface.

 

I glued some frame chipboards and added some crackle paste here and there. If you want more crackle, you have to let it dry.

 

Here is the final result after I used some watercolor and added flowers.

 

I cut out the title in one of the patterned paper from the kit :

 

 

 

 

thank you for watching !

my best friend by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!

I have been away for a few weeks on vacation and I am back today with another boy’s layout from the Scrapbook Kit !

A pretty simple layout where I used the stencil with modeling paste on the background after I had coated with clear gesso.  I used some green and blue watercolors once the paste was dry.

I cut out some of the clocks on one of the patterned paper and used them under the photo.  I also used the vellum and the frame from the flower kits. I love that we can use those parts.

I used part of the chipboard from Creative Embellishments at the bottom of the photo. I also used beautiful flowers and embellishments here and there. The title was on one of the papers, I just cut out the words.

Here are some close-ups :

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I will see you soon with another project ! Come and join us on Facebook to enter this month’s challenge ! You can win beautiful prizes 🙂

A layout by Annie

Hello !!

I am here today today presenting another layout I made with this month Scrapbook Kit with gorgeous papers from Maja Designs.

I pretty much used all the papers (almost) for this layout.  I had some bits and pieces from my last project and decided to use them as well.  I did not use any mediums for this layout, except for the Blue Ink chalk included in the kit. You can see that I used it all around the photo.

I used one of the paper bottom strip as my title (Lovely), also added flowers and embellishments from the kit.

Here are some close-ups :

Mini-album with Scrapbook Kit by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

Today, I am presenting a mini-album I made with the Scrapbook Kit.  I had done a mini-album a few years ago with a similar collection that was for boys.  That is why I decided to do the same, but this time, with pictures of my daughter 🙂 (Check out the small walk through at the end).

This is what inspired me :

 

I took a 12×12 paper from the kit trimmed half of it.  I took a stencil from my stash and some Paste to cover the surface.

 

Once that was dry, I took the inks included in the kit mixed with water and put some on the paper.  Since it was a little bit pale, I decided to add some darker watercolour.

I cut that peace of paper in half, making 2 3×12 strips.  I folded every 3 inch and used washi tape to put the 2 peaces together doing an accordeon.  I ended up doing another strip because I had too many photos !

 

On every page, I used peaces of different papers from the kit, I used a square punch and a circle punch.  I cut out some shoes from a paper and also words you can find on the bottom strips of the 12×12 papers.  I used some flowers too.  The title of the album was made with letter dies.

Here is the final result :

Breathe by Annie Carignan – June Scrapbook Kit

Hello everyone ! Coming today with another layout made with June’s Scrapbook Kit filled with gorgeous products :

I seem to separate the colours when I do a layout, last time I took all the Purple flowers and this time, I had (almost) only Pink flowers left so I decided to use them all !!

So here is my layout, with a photo of myself from my last cruise in February.

I originally put clear Gesso on the surface but I ended up not using any mediums so I could have left the paper as is.

I took the White Tres Jolie lace and glued it on the back, in the middle.  I used a sheet of words from a previous kit to put under the photo, I thought it would give a nice texture.  I took some wood pieces from the kit and put them on the top and behind the photo.

The bottom strip of the paper had nice phrases on it so I kept it and cut them to place them on the layout, I think it looks nice : Be who you are, Be brave, Be Bold, Be Happy.

I finished with flowers and a cute little Bird from the Scrapberry’s pieces.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

I hope you like this layout, let me know if you have any questions !!
