Mood Board Challenge Book Card

Hello crafty peeps!! This week I’m excited to share with u this Book Card that I created for this month’s Mood Challenge! I absolutely love love this  from Tres Jolie! I decided to create this simple book card.

 

 

 

I had made one of these a few years ago following a tutorial on YouTube. 

I used a thick white American Crafts card stock for my base and then used one of the sheets from the scrapbook kit. I used some of the flowers as well.

 

I used a piece of ephemera from my stash and a super cute vintage girl photo that was given to me by a crafty friend!  I then fussy cut a flower from one of the 12×12 sheets that had a variety of color and size of flowers on it. Lastly I added a piece of cotton ivory lace around the inside border of the card.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you will check out this tutorial and give it a try. These make such beautiful and fun gifts!! I look forward to seeing what everyone has created for this month’s Mood Board Challenge! Until next month crafty friends!

 

HUGS,

March Mood Board Monday and Challenge Winner

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the March 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are so amazing. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. It has really pushed me past my comfort zone.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the March mood board. I love the color scheme of it all.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

 I did a lot of fussy cutting from the transparency sheet that is included in the kit. I love how the black show up on the green.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous chipboard frame. I embossed it using some vintage green embossing powder. It has flecks of gold in it that match perfectly. I used a combination of flowers from the kit and a few from my stash.

Now on to our sketch challenge winner from February.

This was the sketch:

 

Congratulations to our winner:

Donna Bailey Sergent

Here is her winning layout:

Donna did an amazing job following the sketch and who could resist that adorable face. Your prize will be in with your next kit.

February Sketch Challenge Layout

Hello crafty friends!! I’m back with the February Sketch Challenge project!! I had time to actually join in my 2nd challenge for Tres Jolie. As well as it being a process video on how I created this layout! I have yet to decide on the photo that will be going on it but I’m sure it will be of a grand baby or daughter. You get the idea!! Anyhow here is my layout! I had fun creating this, using my stamps that hadn’t been used it a while! I hope u like what I came up with!

 

For this layout, I used papers from Heartfelt Creations! I pulled them from my hoard vault and luckily found a background that I felt was similar to the one from the sketch challenge! I also must say that I have really enjoyed creating for these challenges, as I’ve done 2 since being on this Design Team. They really help get your imagination running!

 

 

 

 

Also used a variety of wooden rubber stamps, some Tim Holtz Stamps , 7 Gypsies stamps, and other non brand named stamps, I used some flowers from 49&Market that were part of the January Scrapbook kit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is my process video I created for a quick look at how simple it is to create a layout even if your just learning like I am. I am not as intimidated anymore and another beneficial thing is that I have also been using my stamps more as well and they are no longer sitting on my shelf & drawers just gathering dust haha! Hope you enjoy my video my friends!!

Hope you will leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my layout and any advice you think that I could benefit now in my layout journey that I’m already enjoying! I Thank You for looking at my last post for this month and I hope you keep your eyes peeled for the amazingly fun projects that I have in store for you in March 2020!!

XOXO,

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the January 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are so lovely. 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 of 2020 (wink).

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the January mood board. I love the shabby chicness of this kit.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

 I embossed the chipboard using vintage gold embossing powders. This was from my stash. The Window arch is from the kit, the swirl is from my stash. I also used a combo of flowers. The pink flowers are from the kit. The purple ones are from my stash.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous pink floral cluster. Plus more of the chipboard piece that was embossed.I layered some paper, a doily and tag under the photo. I added a resin photo corner.

I added a small amount of stamping to blend in with the background of the paper. Used some phrase stickers and it was done.

Happy New Year and last project of 2019

Happy New Year to your family from ours. Hope everyone had a safe and fun New Year’s eve.

I’m back to share my last project of 2019. I created this with the December 2019 Mixed media kit.

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

 

Here is my project:

 

I really enjoyed creating this. I just let myself go with the flow. I found when I did that it really came together. I had a problem when I stopped and started thinking about it.

Let’s talk about the “flow” process(my sd card said my images were corrupt, when I went to download. Sorry no pictures to go with this). I took the collage medium and the 2 sheets of rice paper first. I tore the rice paper randomly and glued it down with the collage medium.

Once arranged the way I wanted it, I took the dry wall tape and ripped it and added it to the canvas with the collage medium. I also added the adhesive mesh the same way.

When I was done and like the look, I sealed it with more of the collage medium. The I took some white gesso and when around the edges and them randomly on the canvas. I then covered the dry gesso with the vintage collage medium to tone down the stark white.

Here is where I ran into trouble, because I started to think too much about what to do next. I wasn’t sure I wanted to leave it flat or add dimension. If I did dimension, what would be my focal piece…You know all the questions.

I decided to add dimension. So now what focal piece? I went back and forth and finally settled on flowers, since I have so many.

I pulled out random texture flowers and in complimentary colors for my canvas. Once I had them arranged, I used some crackle medium and added some stenciling.

After everything was glued down, I used the mist from the kit to add more color throughout the canvas. Finished it with some white paint splatters, added a title and I was done.

We will be revealing our January kit next week. Make sure you come back for that. We will also have the winners from our YouTube hop (sorry, the holidays have us off schedule on that).
