Journal page by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! I am back today with another page from my journal, made with the beautiful June Kit : Cards, Tags and more…

Once again I took a inspiration card from the May Kit and went from there.  I chose the photos that for me represented family, friends, sisters etc.

I started with a coat of clear Gesso on both sides and let dry.  Then I took the gorgeous stencil included in the kit with the Nuvo paste wow !!! I just love the result !  After everything was dry I started to play with the Stamps from the kit, all over the pages with the Black Distress Ink.  I continued with some Fuchsia Watercolor here and there, sprayed some water, which diluted the Black ink a little, I think it looks great because it gave like a dark Purple color.

I used some of the sticky words from the May Kit as journaling, and with a watercolour pen, I draw lines around the words and the photos.  I did a wash with water  and a brush to create an antique look.

I hope you like what I did 🙂

Here is the kit content :

  1. Prima – 6×9 Stencil – Passiflora
  2. Prima – Art Daily Planner – Vintage Photobooth
  3. Prima – Art Daily Planner – Rusty Metal Clips
  4. Prima – Finnabair Cling Stamp – Old Paper
  5. Nuvo Mousse – Mother of Pearl
  6. Tim Holtz – Mini Distress Ink – Black Soot

Cards from Annie

Hello everyone !  Today I am sharing my second project for this month, this time with the Cards Tags and more Kit which is filled with beautiful products from Graphic 45, Creative Embellishments and Scrappy cat.  If you want all the details of the kit you can find it at the end of this post.

 

I made 3 cards for this project, all 8×4 approximately.  I used 3 different background papers and 3 other papers on top.  I used the cute tags and pockets to add embellishments to the card along with the beautiful Red flowers.  I painted the  music notes with the gray ink from the Scrapbook Kit.  The sentiments are from my stash.  On each flower I used the glitter glue included in the kit, I think it gives great texture.

 

Here are some close-ups :

Material used :

Shabby Chic 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 and ephemera from Lemoncraft.

 Let’s take a look at this months kit:

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of Shabby Chic Easter and Spring cards. Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here are my first cards. They are a bit Shabby Chic:

How about some close ups:

I love the soft colors of these papers. The basics complement the pattern paper so well. I used one of my favorite doily die cuts on both cards. I also cut out some pieces from the ephemera sheets to use as embellishments.

The chipboard swirls are from the kit and I just left them naked. The white lace is a leftover piece from a past kit.

Today’s tip: Use pieces of foam tape in between  your paper layers to add dimensions. I used a thinner foam tape so the cards weren’t to bulky and it turned out nice. I was able to stick my die cuts between the layers and my cards were still able to fit in an envelope.

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

Cards, Tags and more by Annie Carignan

Hello !! Have you seen this beautiful Cards, Tags and more kit this month? It is filled with beautiful products from Prima.  You have plenty of supplies to create beautiful projects like mini-albums, tags, ATC’s, cards, Art Journal spreads, layouts,  the possibilities are endless !

I like to go out of my comfort zone once in a while so I decided to create ATC’s, something I haven’t done very often !  So I chose the 3×4 wood ATC cards.

Here is the kit :

A new year has begun and every January, I always like to look forward and try to make new resolutions for the upcoming months.  That is why I chose to create 4 ATC’s with positive quotes on them.  I will put them where everyone can see them in the house, because they are good for my kids too.

I chose a different 6×6 paper for every ATC and adhered on the wood.  I wanted to put some watercolor on them so I put a coat of clear Gesso on the paper.  I cut out some of the Darice on all 4 and then put some flowers, art titles printery and resin embellishments. The quotes are from my stash. If you would like to do something similar and you don’t have word stickers, you can always type them in Word, print them and cut them.

Merry Christmas Deer Cards with Rae

Hello! Today I am sharing a couple of cards I have made with the December Card, Tags, and More kit, featuring Mintay Christmas Stories papers.

I created two  6X6 cards using a similar design.

Here they are:

I love that cute little deer on the papers, so I cut two of them out for these cards. This paper is perfect for fussy cutting! I also cut out some of the red poinsettias as well to add to the floral part of the cards.

I used a 6 X 6 piece of paper for the back layer of the cards, then cut two sheets of the 6 X 6 paper down to 5 3/4 X 5 3/4. Then I ripped the paper that was going on the bottom diagonally to create a “half and half” design. I distressed all of the edges, then glued these layers together, leaving room under the top layer to tuck in some lace (from my stash).

Next, I added some stenciling (snow “dot” pattern) with some glittery paste, and added the Merry Christmas titles.

On this card, I used the red paper and a die to cut the title, and added some of the Kaisercraft pearls to accent the title.

For this card, I added the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the kit. I embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing powder from my stash.

I cut out a fancy snowflake with an old Memory Box dies, and put it in the middle of the card, then added a larger flower from my stash, added the deer to the middle and added some of the small Kaisercraft roses from the kit.

After that, I tucked in the poinsettias that I fussy cut, then added more of the little Kaisercraft roses.

Here’s a couple of closeups from both cards showing the floral cluster/line.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Keep checking back all month to see what the rest of the design team has made with all of the kits!

Bottle Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

 Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of holiday tags and cards.   Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a holiday bottle Tag and Card set. These were very simple, yet fun to make.

How about some close ups:

For the both pieces, I used the same papers. I cut the bases out of the green cardstock. I used 2 separate sheets of paper for the layers. I used the same process for both. The bottom layer is patterned paper, then cardstock, then another sheet of patterned paper.

The chipboard titles are from the kit and I just heat embossed them with some red tinsel embossing powder from my stash. The white flower and balls are from my stash.

For the top of the bottle tag, I used my 1 3/4 punch for the hole. It’s a good size for almost any bottle. I embelleshed the top with pearls for the kit. It’s hard to see, but I also used some crystal stickles on both to give it a bit of shimmer.

Today’s tip: The dimensions for the bottle tag are 3 inches wide x 9 inches lone. The top is scored at 3 inches. Look for a video later this month.

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

Greetings Cards by Ginny

Hi all,

Today I’m sharing another set of cards created with the Cards Tags and More kit!

These cards are a little bit more modern and bold compared to the shabby chic set I made at the beginning of the month. I hope you like them!

 

 

Here is each card close up.

 

Here is a short process on how they were put together.

I started with the Card blank for my base.

 

Now for all the layers, each photo shows you each layer in order with the measurements.

 

 

 

 

Distress all edges

Layer and stick all pieces on the card base in order of size, largest to smallest.

Add a strip of gems down one side

And a group of flowers in the corner.

Lastly emboss the chipboard word greeting with black embossing powder and glue in place on the card.
