Happy Monday guys, Kim here. Today I am here to share my first project for March. I've really enjoyed working with this kit. The papers are so much fun, it's rare when you find a set of papers where you really love them all. This kit has just that. If you haven't seen it, here it is:
I'm not sure if you heard, but we have partnered with Sketches in Thyme this month, so not only is my layout based on our monthly mood board, but I also used one of their March sketches. Make sure you check out the challenges over there.
Here is the Sketches in Thyme sketch that I used:
Here is our monthly Mood Board:
The Twist for the mood board this month is: SHAPES
Here is my layout:
Like I said before, the papers are so nice I had trouble deciding which ones I wanted to use. I finally decided to stop trying to save the prettiest sheets for the perfect photo and just use them.
How about some close ups:
Here you can see where I did a bit of paper tearing. I've been doing a lot of that lately, it's pretty therapeutic. You can also see a piece of chipboard I used. It's from the Heart Key set
, except it's a misfit piece (it's fun that I get to use the misfit pieces). I used some Lindy's spray on it from a past mixed media kit that can be found here
I did some stenciling and stamping in the background. Both the stencil and the stamp are included in the kit.
I cut out some of the ephemera tags and used them to layer behind my photo. I also used one of the chipboard windows
(included in the kit) as an embellishment. I used as few flowers as possible (hubby doesn't like flowers on his layouts).

Tres Jolie always hosts a monthly sketch or mood board challenge. For the new year we changed up our challenges. We will continue to provide a “mood board” or sketch, it’s just that the rules changed. We want to include our laser-cut chipboard in the challenge. So, with that being said, here are the new rules.
*This challenge is still open to everyone*
*You can create any type of project for the challenge.
*You MUST say what you were inspired by.
*You MUST include the twist in your design.
*We would love to see you USE AT LEAST 1 OF Tres Jolie's products on your projects but it isn’t required to play along.
It MUST be a new project.
