Family layout by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to share a layout made with beautiful September Scrapbook Kit :

This was a pretty simple layout to make, no mediums, just paper and embellishments !  I used the Rice paper and teared it a bit and adhered it on the background paper.  I cut out a quote from one of the paper and created a cascade with flowers. Added embellishments and that was it ! I love the result !

 

Here are some close-ups :

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.

July Mood Board Winner and DT Call

Hey guys, Kim here. I’m back from vacation and it’s to announce the winner of our July mood board challenge.  As always this takes a bit of time to choose from the gorgeous entries. Everyone always has their favorite.

Here is the July mood board:

So without anymore waiting, congratulations to our July challenge winner:

Crystal Johnson

Here is Crystal’s winning project:

What I really love is that Crystal didn’t do a traditional scrapbook layout. She was able to take inspiration and make this amazing mini album. I love the shabby chicness to it. My favorite part is all the elements that continue off the page. I think it give this mini so much dimension.

Beach, Sun and Sand by Annie

Hello everyone ! I am back today with another layout made with August Scrapbook Kit :

I really loved doing this layout, I love it !

The first thing I did is apply White Gesso mixed with water on the surface because I wanted to do a wash over the patterns.  I then teared a peace of patterned paper and adhered it in the middle.

After that I used the Stencil included in the kit with Modeling Paste.  I put a coat of Clear Gesso on it because I knew I would use Watercolor.

I made different layers with different papers, a frame and vellum included in the flower package. I like creating a 3D effect with peaces of cardstock that I recycle from boxes or packages.  This time I used watercolor after everything was in place.  At the very end I added some Art Stones and chipboards from my stash for the title.

Journal Spread with Cards, Tags and more Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to present a Journal Spread I made while I was camping.  I had brought my Journal with me, remember the journal we had in a previous kit ?

Here is the beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit :

Here is the kit content :

Cards, Tags and More Kit:

  1. Ciao Bella – Romantic Time 12×12 Paper Pack
  2. Ciao Bella – Rice Paper – Romantic Time – Endless Love
  3. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Neutral Beauty
  4. Prima – Pretty Pale Flowers – Sweet Species
  5. Scrapaholics – Chipboard – Ivy vine spray set
  6. Scrapaholics – Chipboard -Leafy Flourish set 2
  7. Creative Embellishments – Chipboard – Mini Frames
  8. Simplicity – Lace
I was inspired by the Rice Paper, I thought it would make a gorgeous  background in my album.  I put a coat of Matt Gel to adhere it on the background.
 

I adhered peaces of Lace too in the middle also with Gel.

 

Once the gel was dry, I used some White Gesso mixed with water and did like a wash on the surface.

 

I glued some frame chipboards and added some crackle paste here and there. If you want more crackle, you have to let it dry.

 

Here is the final result after I used some watercolor and added flowers.

 

I cut out the title in one of the patterned paper from the kit :

 

 

 

 

thank you for watching !
