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 :

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.

July Cards by Annie Carignan

Hello !!! I have some cards to share today with you guys, I made them with the gorgeous kit Cards, Tags and more from July. Check out the store with the link at the bottom of this post 😉

Here are the 3 cards, pretty simple but I like them.

I took 3 different cards, a purple, a pink and a green for the back of the cards.  I chose 3 different papers from the paper pad and placed them on the card.  I used the washi tapes on all 3 cards.

I finished with all the embellishments from the kit :

“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.

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 !!

My favorite fairy tale by Annie Carignan

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

The Purple flowers inspired me to use a lot of Purple and Green !!  I decided to pull out from my stash some sprays I hadn’t used in a very long time ! Since I almost always work with my watercolors, I kind of let go of some of my other mediums…

So here is my layout, with a beautiful photo of my daughter.   First things first, a coat of clear Gesso on the background, let it dry and then used the gorgeous stencil from the Cards, Tags and more kit (must still be available in the shop).  Then I took my Purple sprays and also a Green spray. As you can see, I put a lot !  I did some stamping too on the background.

Next thing I did was use the beautiful cut outs : postcards and stamps from the kit and placed them in a cascade from the top left to the right bottom.

I took the white Tres Jolie lace and teared it a little bit.  I added flowers on which I sprayed ink 🙂 I just love doing that !  I added some of the word phrases and inspiration cards from the previous Cards, Tags and more kit.

Here are some close-ups :

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

Love this Life layout with the June Kit

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing another layout created with the June scrapbook kit. I really love the 49 & Market papers in the kit. They are so soft and pretty. If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here is the layout I created with it:

Almost everything is from the kit. The big chipboard piece is from my stash.

How about some close-ups:

All the flowers, leaves and the resin are from the kit. I just love the way this cluster turned out.

 

The doily is from my stash. I’ve had it for a while. It was the perfect match for this layout. The green stamp is part of the matching embellishment pack from 49 & Market. You get so many pieces and they are great to use all over your pages.

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