Limited Edition Christmas Mixed Media kit (Mixed Media Monday)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I’m bringing you a very special kit. We are offering a limited edition (limited quantities) Christmas Mixed Media kit. This kit was created for Tres Jolie, by Tres Jolie (plus it’s a preview of new products to come). You won’t be able to find it anywhere else.

Here is the kit:

 

There will also be a private video for those who purchase the kit. The link will be emailed when the kit ships. In the video, you will get instruction on how to put the box together all with some tips on how to use the mediums and embellishment to create your own one-of-a-kind Christmas ornaments.

How great is this for a fun family afternoon craft project that will last for years to come. It can be displayed during the holidays and then safely stored away in its own personalized box.

Like I stated this is very limited in supply (due to Covid-19 supplies have been a bit hard to come by). Get yours now before they are all sold out

Mood (Color Story) Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the November 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. They are kinda dark and moody.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the November color story challenge.

Here is the color story:

How about some close-ups:

I covered the sheet in clear gesso to prep it for the stenciling I did. Here you can see where I used just the leftover modeling paste on the stencil to create this light design. The stenciling is heavier in other places.

You can also see the chipboard that I used a textured embossing powder on. There are also a few layers under the photo from papers in the kit. I did a bit of distressing on the paper edges.

More layers, die cuts and chipboard (grass is from my stash) and flowers from the kit. The title was cut from the kit sayings.

“Untitled” Layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing an untitled vintage layout created with the October 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Blue Fern Studios  have a great vintage feel to them. I’m really loving with this kit.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

 

How about some close-ups:

I created several layers of different sizes using 3 different sheets of paper. I ripped the edges slightly. The chipboard frame from the kit was covered in clear gesso (this helps the embossing ink adhere), then painted with the mist from the mixed media kit. I love the way it turned out.

Here you can see a better look at the chipboard. I used the same technique on the chipboard butterfly (except I used 2 colors), then added some stickles (from the mixed media kit) for shimmer. I added some trim (from my stash) as layers under my photo. I love how they make the photo pop. You can see a bit of the stenciling I did on the bottom layer of paper.

Here is one of the floral clusters (all flowers are from the kit), the tickets were fussy cut from the ephemera that come in the kit. The chipboard leaves (from my stash) got more of the same treatment as the other chipboard. It really shines under the flowers.

A tri-fold card, a template and a winner

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful shabby chic/floral kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards, birthdays, weddings or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a love card and used a template to create the base.

This is a 4×6 card.  I used a 6 x 12 sheet of cardstock  to create the base.

Here is the template to download:

Card template

How about some close-ups:

I used the template for the base of the card. Then I decided on my papers for all my sections. I inked all the edges before gluing them down.

I left the inside flap bare, this way I could add whatever sentiment I wanted later. This gives you a better look of how the card folds. I love the mix of patterns on the papers. The chipboard rose is from the kit. I used some diamond stickles from the mixed media kit to make it sparkle.

Here is another view of the back side of the card. You can add little pop-up elements all over this card. They make fun surprises.

 

Now for a winner.

Did you enter our September sketch challenge? What are you waiting for? Thanks to all who did join in. Remember, we have a new challenge each month.

Congratulations to:

Peggy Giovanetti.

Your prize will be included in your next kit.

“Dream” Sketch Challenge Inspiration

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a vintage layout created with the October 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Blue Fern Studios are so stunningly gorgeous. I’m really loving with this kit.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the October sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

First of all, I flipped the sketch to make it work for this photo. The background sheet already looks like it has torn paper on it, so I just tore a border from another sheet and used it behind my photo. I added a doily as another layer behind my photo.

Both chipboard pieces got the same treatment, just with different colors. I used some liquid pearls to cover them and while still wet I sprinkled on some embossing powder, then heat set them. I love the texture this creates.

The floral cluster has flowers from 2 of the packs included in the kit (the leaves are from my stash). Also include in the cluster is lace from the kit. The key and tickets are fussy cut from the bis-n-bobs cards. I added some foam tape to give them some dimension.

the cluster on this side is fussy cut elements again from the bis-n-bobs cards. I also added a couple of small flowers and lace from the kit and a vintage button from my stash.
