In The Arms of Love

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the October scrapbook kit. The papers from Craft O’Clock are so nice, they are very verstile. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. I know I say this almost every month, but this is becoming one of my favorite kits.

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

I used a black and white photo that was taken of hubby and I on our anniversary cruise. I did use a few flowers from a past kit (the big brown ones). I painted the  chipboard using the mediums from last month’s MM kit.  I used the green ink in the kit to do a bit of stamping. The background got some stenciling and misting, again using the mediums from last months MM kit.

How about some close-ups:

I added some micro beads to the flowers once the layout was complete. I used copper and black.

You can see a bit of the stamping in green.

Here you can see the stenciling. I used crackle paste from a past MM kit.

September Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the September Mixed Media kit. I also have a video (after lots of technical difficulties)to share of the process.

This month’s Mixed Media kit features lots of mediums from 13@rts, including their rust effect powder and reagent.  Plus we have some Libndy’s squirts to round everything off. Also included is are some metals and a canvas. Everything needed to create an altered mixed media canvas.

Here is the kit:

This canvas was really messy and a lot of fun to create using the kit mediums.

Here is my project:

 

 

 

Here is the video process on how I created this:

Artist Trading Coins using the September Cards, Tags and More Kit

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 from Dress my Craft along with a tag album and some chipboardartist trading coins.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with a 6×6  paper pad to create a beautiful tag album, plus some ATC. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are 2 sets of artist trading coins I created. I don’t create a lot of these, but I love how they turned out:

How about a close up:

These were a fun, quick project to create. I loved that I could use 1 6×6 sheet of paper for both coins.

The chipboard swirls are from my stash. I used the embossing powder from the kit on them. I used some Tim Holtz chit chat phrases that I cut up and inked, added a few pearls and flowers, DONE!

 

Here is the second set:

And a close up:

 

I used the same formula to create this set. One sheet of paper, some chipboard, chit chat phrase and flowers. I think these have a more festive look to them. It wasn’t my intention, I’m not ready for the cold weather that comes with the Holidays.

 

Today’s tip: If you need to make a large quantity of a project, make it simple and follow the same formula. Just change your embellishments. It will make life much simpler.

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

Every Story (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.

So 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 the pattern the peeling paint makes, plus some of the colors.  I had lots of fun creating this layout.

This is a photo of dh and I out for dinner on Mother’s Day.

How about some close-ups.

I did some random stamping in the background. Plus I added a bit of the mist that comes in the kit.

 

I embossed the chipboard with some Lindy’s embossing powder. The butterfly is from my stash.

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 September 2019 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 September 30th, 2018 at 11:59 pm CST.
