This is me…. by Ginny

This is the last post for January from me….. and for Tres Jolie, at the moment for personal reasons I need more time at home with my family… but I will greatly miss designing for Kim and Tres Jolie Kits and I’m so pleased I was able to help her get this wonderful scrapbook club off the ground. I am sure it will go from strength to strength, the contents of these kits are always so beautiful and well thought out with fabulous coordinating embellishments to go with the papers, all the latest goodies to play with and a whole load of new friends to chat to… what more could you want?
I will still be following all the wonderful creations from the designers and the subscribers… so happy scrapping!!

My layout this time is using the Prima Marketing Lavender Frost papers.

 

 

I loved all the papers in this kit so much I’ve been trying to use as many of them as possible, so hense all the layering! All edges heavily distressed as always!
I spritzed some mist on the background with my favourite mist Crème de Rouge from Glimmer Mists.

 

 

I added a lace bow from my stash to ‘fill’ out the flower embellishment.

 

And added the 7 gypsies Ornate Garden Stakes sticking out from the clusters.

 

The Prima tickets are poked into the clusters too with a selection from all the flower packs in the kit.

 

I added a bigger piece of pretty lace border into the paper layer border I added down the side of the layout… this is also popped up onto some cardboard to lift of the page, I love adding a little depth to my layouts…
….and I used the vellum printed packaging again that the flowers are stuck onto in their packs… its far to nice to throw out!!

I spritzed some of the mist over the flowers and embellishments at the end.

New Beginnings by Ginny

Today I’m back with a layout created with the January Scrapbook kit from Tres Jolie Kits. This kit is so pretty, it is definitely one of my favourites! The papers from Prima Marketing and 49& Market are stunning and as for the flowers….. so pretty…. I hope you are all enjoying creating with it!

For this layout I have gone back to the 49& Market papers. I adore the colour tones in these papers.

 

So here it is….

 

 

 


I used three of the Sweet Reflections papers for this layout, distressing the edges and layering them up, all slightly different sizes.
I added some background stencilling with a stencil and texture paste.

 

The bunting I strung on bakers twine. I dabbed the Prima Chalk ink on the banners to add splashes of lilac colour to them

These flowers are GORGEOUS! If you only buy one of the flower sets from the Prima Lavender Frost collection it has got to be this set – Misty Nights.
I did fussy cut some flowers from the Awakening paper and add to my flower cluster at the bottom of the layout.

 

I added a beautiful piece of lace from my stash to add a soft pretty romantic touch to the layout.

I did use some flowers from the other packs of flowers in the kit too to ‘fill’ in.
I dabbed around the outer edges of the 2 background papers with the chalk ink pad.

Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….

 

 

 

I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.

 

The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.

 

I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.

 

The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.

 

I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.

 

The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.

 

Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s

 

 

 

 

This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.

 

I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.

 

In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.

 

I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.

 

The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.

 

The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.

 

 

Cards, Tags and More Kit:

Prima Marketing – Printery Mulberry Paper 6 x6 paper pad
Prima Marketing Wooden ATC Cards-Lovely Prints
Prima Marketing Wooden ATC Cards – Classic Cards
Prima Marketing–Velvet baubles Romance Novel
Prima Marketing-Art Tiles Printery
Prima Marketing-Resin in a box Keys

Lavender Frost layout with Ginny

Hello All!

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have all have a fabulous, happy, healthy, peaceful and joyous 2019!

It’s time for a layout created with the January Kit from Tres Jolie Kits, this kit is a beauty this month!
We have beautiful papers from 49 & Market and Prima Marketing and some gorgeous embellishments to compliment them.
I have also had the pleasure of creating with the Cards Tags and More Kit this month too… again filled with Prima goodies. More on that later in the month.

Today I have decided to share with you a layout created with the Prima Marketing Lavender Frost papers.

 

 

I did a little stenciling with texture paste in the background.
There are loads of layers in this layout, small oblongs cut from lots of the Prima papers in this collection.

 

The flowers from this collection are stunning. I grouped them together along with some butterflies fussy cut from the papers.

I added some of the tickets in the clusters too.

All the flowers are packaged with a piece of printed vellum paper… I loved this and couldn’t waste it so I have used this in my paper layers.

I added touches of Nuvo Crystal drops to the layout from a previous kit.

Celebrating by Ginny

Hi everyone, 

Welcome to my last post for the month featuring the December Kit for TRES JOLIE KITS.

Today I’m sharing with you a scrapbook layout created with the gorgeous Maja Design Joyous Winterdays paper collection.

Lets show you some close ups and details of the layout….

I used lots of layers in this layout, using all the lovely patterns and designs in this paper collection.

I inked edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I used the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit, to add some holly texture paste detail to the background paper.

I also used the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit and dropped it into glue on top of all the flowers and leaves to add a real wintery feel to the embellishments.

The Kaiser pearls in Denim I added in swirls coming from the flower clusters and the odd single one dotted around.

I love this photo from a recent visit with my parents to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary!

I had a piece of the Holly and Berry border left over from another layout, so I used it on this layout. 

I covered it with SnowTex from my stash, to give it a snowy look about it and then again dropped some Art Sugar into it.

The photo was backed on the Frost paper.

The bunting pieces I created from paper Playful

Frost Layout by Ginny

Hi all, 

Welcome to another post featuring the December Scrapbook Kit from TRES JOLIE KITS.

This kit features papers from Maja Design Joyous Winterdays collection, flowers from Prima Marketing and chipboards from Creative Embellishments. What is there not to love?!

Here is my wintery themed layout with myself and my favourite girlie ! ❤ ….

The next photos show you a few close ups with details of my work.

The top background paper, Glisten, was heavily distressed round the edges and then backed onto the main background paper, Cozy Inside.

The photo is backed onto paper Frost.

I added the title strip from one of the papers as a border across the layout.

The chipboard title was covered with Nuvo Cryatsl drops.

I covered the chipboard with the silver Nuvo Crystal Drops and dropped the Antique Silver Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit onto it whilst still wet.

I added Nuvo drops all round the layout.

I loved the cute shovel which I nestled in the flower cluster.

I added the Art Sugar to some of the flowers and silver leaves too.

I finished by adding some of the ‘snow’ from the mixed media kit to the shovel and the flower clusters.

Noel Plaque by Ginny

Hello all, 

This week I’m sharing with you my project created with the December Mixed Media Kit from TRES JOLIE KITS.

I loved this project and had so much fun creating it. I added a few different techniques to it.

I wanted to create a shabby/weathered look to the plaque.

Lets have a look!


Here is a quick photo guide on the process…..

I firstly gave the plaque a coat of the green paint.

I dried this with a heat tool to speed the process up. 

Next I covered the plaque with a thick layer of the off white paint. 

Then Dried it. 

When fully dry I rubbed over places of it with some sand paper to rub back though the layers to reveal the green paint and the wood underneath. 

I then used some crackle medium from my stash in three patches on the plaque. The crackle medium I used does takes a good 24/48 hours to crack and dry but the wait is worth it.

The ‘believe’ I painted with the red paint and then when dry covered in the crackle medium again. Thick in places to crack and not so in others – this is where it looks a bit white where there isn’t the layer of medium to crack but I like the effect.

when dry and cracked I rubbed over the Opal Magic so that it filled the cracks. This really accentuated the cracks, I loved the way it turned out! 

I added the Opal Magic to the crackle patches on the plaque too!

Next some fussy cutting from the papers in the main Scrapbook Kit.

This was the base to main design. I used hot glue to fix one of the floral embellishments, as this a big piece to fix firmly.

I added a lovely gold mesh bow to the back of the floral piece.

The second floral embellishment piece I cut up so I could create a smaller cluster….

…..And made this arrangement on the opposite side of the ‘believe’.

I added the fake snow around the floral cluster by dropping it into wet glue and leaving it to dry and then shaking the excess off after when dry.

I finished off by rubbing some Viva Ink Gold around the edges of the ‘believe’ and the outside edges of the plaque and dropping some of the glitter on to the background that had fell off the floral embellishments….. I never waste anything!!! 

Here are some close ups of the finished project.

‘Roxy’ by Ginny

Happy December everyone!

I cannot quite believe we are in December already. The Christmas shopping is nearly done, I’m not quite sure how I have managed to be so organised with that?!
But it does mean we have the December Kit from Tres Jolie Kits to enjoy and create beautiful layouts and projects!

This months papers are from Maja Design. I love Maja papers and this winter/ Christmas themed collection are as beautiful as ever!

So here is my first project made with the Scrapbook kit.
I love this kit because you can make your Christmas layouts with it but it works really well for non- Christmas layouts too!

Here are a few close ups with some details of how the layout was put together.

I based the design around a cut circle. The edges distressed and inked with a Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
The photo of Roxy I have backed with 3 paper layers, all distressed.


There is a small amount of stencilling behind the circle. This is a subtle effect in the background.
The circle is backed with a piece of cardboard (from the kit postal packaging) to lift it off the background paper. This gives the layout much more depth.
The background paper was heavily inked with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. These colours blend so well with Roxy’s coat colours!

The chipboard Holly from Creative embellishments I simple changed by sponging distress ink Walnut Stain all over it, again this was so it blended with Roxy’s colouring and kept the neutral tones going in the layout.

I highlighted the layout by adding the pale yellow, cinnamon coloured flowers to add a little contrast to the rest of the layout.

I added some silver Nuvo crystal drops in random places in groups of 3 dots, I always remember the rule of 3??!

The Prima Resin Icon pieces are from a previous Tres Jolie Kit, but I thought the colours of them fitted perfectly with the grey flowers in this months kit.

Greetings Cards by Ginny

Hi all,

Today I’m sharing another set of cards created with the Cards Tags and More kit!

These cards are a little bit more modern and bold compared to the shabby chic set I made at the beginning of the month. I hope you like them!

 

 

Here is each card close up.

 

Here is a short process on how they were put together.

I started with the Card blank for my base.

 

Now for all the layers, each photo shows you each layer in order with the measurements.

 

 

 

 

Distress all edges

Layer and stick all pieces on the card base in order of size, largest to smallest.

Add a strip of gems down one side

And a group of flowers in the corner.

Lastly emboss the chipboard word greeting with black embossing powder and glue in place on the card.
