Vacation Break

Hi all, just wanted to let you know that we will be on vacation from August 16 thru August 26. Dh and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony.

I will have very limited internet access while gone. I will answer all emails and fill any orders after my return. Not to worry subscribers, all your kits are scheduled to ship prior to my vacation.

In the meantime, there will still be blog post to share projects created with the August. Make sure you return throughout the month to see them.

Soft and Pretty Cards

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers, including rice paper from Ciao bella.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with a pad of 12×12 paper to create plenty of elegant/vintage cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. I am still getting better and better each month with cards and I have a nice supply of them now:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. I used flowers from the kit. The vellum is from the flower pack in the kit. I embossed one of the mini chipboard frames in the kit with a vintage embossing powder.

The clock is from my stash, I added some alcohol ink to it to color it. The sentiment is from my stash, it’s from a Tim Holtz pack. I also embossed the leafy chipboard piece with a soft green color. I also inked the edges of my papers.

Today’s tip: If something isn’t the right color, make it so. Try using alcohol inks, distress inks, or embossing powder to alter elements to fit your project.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

“One of a Kind” layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the August scrapbook kit. I really love the Couture Creations papers in the kit. They are so masculine. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. It is giving me the rare opportunity to scrap some pictures of the guys in my life.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here is the layout I created with it:

I love this photo of my dad. He did some modeling back in the day. I did use a few pieces of chipboard from my stash. I took a chipboard clock and cut it in half. The I just used some black archival ink to color it. The same with the chipboard swirls, except I use green and black ink.

How about some close-ups:

I did some stamping in the background. I also cut up the “cards” on one of the papers and used them as layers behind my photo.

I used some of the brass nail heads around the page. There are those alphabet cards I’ve been hoarding. I am so glad I finally got to use them.

I added that one lone flower and I think it fit perfect. The sentiments are from a pack of chipboard sayings from my stash.

My Guys (Mood Board Challenge)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board with a twist challenge.

Some may say what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board, with a twist. What is the twist you might ask? Well, we decided to use a specific color palette to go along with the images we chose. So you have more to be inspired by.

Doesn’t this get your mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by some of the images. I just love clocks for masculine layouts. I went with the cards and the spade (used the image and color).

I love this photo, it is the last one I have of my dad and my husband before my dad died a month later.

How about some close-ups.

Hubby hates when I add flowers to layouts of him, so I only added a few. To make the few I added less feminine, I added a nut to it that says memories.  All these items, except for the stencil and black gesso are from the kit.

 

I have had these alphabet playing cards in my stash forever. They worked perfectly on this layout. That frame in the background came in a pack of flowers in the kit.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.

Place your entries in the August2019 Challenge folder on Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe Facebook page. All are welcome to enter, however we’d love to see what you do with our kits.

This challenge ends on August 31st, 2018 at 11:59 pm CST.

Elegant July Cards

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first projects from the Card, Tags and more kit. This kit is full of beautiful papers, washi tape and ephemera from Prima Marketing.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of elegant summer cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. I have to admit, I am getting better and better each month with these:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. I used one of my favorite lace flowers and cut it into pieces for the border. The center flower is a leftover resin piece from a previous kit. I also cut out some pieces from the chipboard vine to use as embellishments.The ticket is from the kit as well.

The chipboard butterfly is from the kit and I heat embossed it. The doily is a die cut from my stash. It’s one of my favorites to use on cards because it is the perfect size. I actually did some fussy cutting for this card as well.

Today’s tip: Don’t be afraid to let elements hang off the side of your cards. it adds visual interest to them.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

“We are Fearless” Layout created with the July Kit

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the July scrapbook kit. I really love the Maja papers in the kit. They are so girly and fun. If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here is the layout I created with it:

Almost everything is from the kit. I did use some die cuts and a few pieces of lace from my stash. The resin and title stickers are also from my stash.

How about some close-ups:

All the flowers and the metal wagon wheel are from the kit. I just love the way this cluster turned out.

I die cut the doily.  The green leaves are also a die cut. I am starting to use my dies more on layouts. The white swirl is a leftover resin piece I made in a mould. I keep a little basket of odds n ends on my desk while I scrap and rummage thru it for embellishments.

Just another close-up of the gorgeous flowers included in the kit.
