Monday monthly wrap-up

Hey everyone, Kim here. since we are in the last week of the month, we are going to do a monthly wrap -up and MAYBE some sneaks for next month.

If you haven’t had internet access for the last month and missed all our social media post, I’ll start off by showing you the July kits.

This is the scrapbook kit (there are still a few available), it was filled with beautiful papers from Srapboys. The DT did an amazing job creating with this kit.

Here are some examples:

Can you believe Cris created that stunning tag flip book with just leftover scraps?

Next up is the Cards, Tags and more kit. I love this kit because each month it’s a surprise. For July we had a junk journal.

Look at these journals:

I created this textured cover for my journal.

 

Lastly, but definitely not least is the Mixed Media kit. The fun thing about this kit is there is always a project to use your mediums on right out of the box.  So not only do you get to build your mediums stash, you get to create cool projects.

Here is the kit:

Let’s look at some projects:

There is also our monthly challenge. You still have time to enter if you haven’t. The challenge is open to everyone and there is always a great prize for the winner.

Here is the mood board if you haven’t seen it:

August is just a few days away. We will be revealing our kits on August 3rd.  We are so excited, the kits are amazing. How about a few sneak peeks of what’s in the works?

“Forever” Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday, crafty people!

Today I am sharing a layout I made using the July scrapbook kit.  Here’s what came int he kit this month:

I love the classic “shabby chicness” of these papers, but my favorite thing about this collection is the grey hues on some of the papers, so I kind of focused on playing with some toned down hues to go along with that grey.  Here’s what I came up with:

I started out by distressing and ripping the top grey paper, and adding it to one of the papers with a purple hue.  I added a lot of stenciling using a classic swirly Prima stencil and some white crackle paste.  Once dry, I used some grey ink over the stenciling.

I did a bit of fussy cutting for a few of the elements in the cluster: the frame, flowers, leaves and clocks.  I added some diluted gesso to those for a faded effect.  The same treatment was dome to the flowers- the white ones are from the kit (49 and Market) and the pink ones are OLD Petaloo from my stash.

The fence is from an old die (I think it’s Memory Box) that I cut and then embossed with black and silver embossing powder to give it some texture and ability to look old and distressed.

I also added white and gold embossing powder to the Creative Embellishments chipboard swirls. Lastly, I added some of the Liquid Pearls from the kit to the chipboard title (from my stash) as you can see here:

July “follow along with me” layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the July 2020 scrapbook kit. These papers from Scrapboys are amazing. I’ve done a follow along with me layout.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

 

This layout was created with just items from the Scrapbook kit. This is a new thing we created after we’ve had some request for more detailed instructions for the projects. For this layout I had a video to follow along with, but I accidentally deleted it. I will give you the step by steps and list the items used.

This is the second “follow along with me”. DT member Crystal did one with the July mixed media kit, so don’t forget to check that out. Again, this is a new monthly series.

Here is the list of items used from the kit:

  1. Dream Garden sheet #1
  2. Dream Garden sheet #5
  3. 49 & Market stitched frame
  4. Prima Marketing Shabby Chic Treasures
  5. 49 & Market sugar poises
  6. 49 & Market Wildflowers
  7. 49 & Market garden petals
  8. Creative Embellishments flourish
  9. Ranger liquid pearls

Essentials from my stash:

  1. Pink cardstock
  2. Pink chalk ink
  3. White embossing powder
  4. Gesso
  5. Various die cuts

I used sheet 1 as my base and ripped sheet 2 on the diagonal (made sure the wagon wheel was on the side I didn’t use). I inked the edges of all paper with some pink chalk ink, then adhered the ripped sheet to the base.

I then watered down some gesso and whit washed the base sheet to the down the flowers. Once dried, I swiped the page lightly with the pink chalk ink.

I cut a couple of die cuts from pink cardstock. I adhered them behind where my photo was going. Once that was done, I fussy cut the wagon wheel and flower pail from the leftover torn paper.

The wagon wheel was glued down and the pail set to the side for later. I added small foam dots to the stitched frame and stuck it down. Next I added thicker foam tape to the photo and layered it onto pf the frame.

Once picture was down, I embellished the rest of the layout. I used foam tape on the pail and adhered it just below the photo. I added flowers to the bottom using all flowers from the kit. The top spray was created by bunching up flowers from all three packs.

For the chipboard. i cut it into 2 pieces. The I used a combo of white embossing power and the pink liquid pearls. Just randomly place your liquid pearls on the chipboard, then sprinkle with embossing power and heat set.

There you have it. I hope this explanation helps. So sorry about the video (he he).

Don’t forget we have a monthly challenge. Have you joined in on our monthly challenge? Why not, you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. Our July challenge just started, so there is still plenty of time to join.

Simple , Unique But Beautiful Layout

Hello crafty friends! This week I am back sharing a layout where I have created my own background design for my layout!

I really loved creating this layout using this month’s Cards, Tags & More Kit

You can view a quick process video of how I created this using a few, simple supplies that you most likely have in your crafty stash!!

 

I began by adhering a 12×12 sheet of light yellow card stock from American Crafts , onto a 12×12 white chipboard sheet. I then trimmed a sheet of white card stock to that yellow one but before adhering it I went along the edges using some of the Tonic Studios Embellishment Nuvo mousse   in Custard cream. I then applied some 13@arts White Gesso from a previous kit onto areas of the card stock for when I add some colors using a shimmer spray from Recollections Simply Pastel Yellow and I also added some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Spun Sugar. I heat dried it then added some white cheese cloth for some added dimension.

I then added some of the lace from the kit and then I took a couple of sheets from the Simple Stories Vintage Garden District Paper Pad from the kit and tore some of pieces of paper to add onto the edges mainly . Before adhering the torn paper to the layout I went over the edges using one of my favorite products, the Tonic Studios Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Custard Cream color.

I want the frames from the collection to be my main focus on my layout.  Then on back of the frames I had added some light pink card stock from the kit and some pop dots which made it easier for me to add the photos of my grand daughters since I hadn’t printed them and added them right away to my layout.

So that was basically a quick over view of my project! I hope that you liked what I came up with using this month’s kit and also please don’t forget that you still have time to enter the 2 year anniversary challenge going on this month for Tres Jolie Kits!!

Talk to you all soon!! Hope u have a great weekend!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

May Sketch Challenge Layout By Jeanne

Hello friends!! Today I am sharing my Sketch Challenge for this month! I love creating from the ideas that Kim puts together, they are so much fun to do!

For my project I started by adding some Gold pigment ink onto the edges of the 12X12 paper that I used, which was from one of my favorite collections from Prima Marketing  “Salvage District” . I also stamped some roses using the same ink around my page.  Once it dried I backed up my layout onto a 12×12 chipboard sheet. I then added some Lindy’s Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise Flat Spray Lindy’s Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise Spray

I used a paint brush to apply this color since I didn’t want it too bright. I then added other papers from the collection where my photo mat will be. I added some Prima Marketing flowers & leaves, I also added some of Wooden embellishments from the Salvage District collection as well as some flat back pearls. Lastly adding some black flourish die cuts I had left from another project .

I hope that you will join in to this challenge! There is still time and make sure you join and post to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Page on Facebook ! All links are below!

See ya next time!!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! Today I’m bringing you a quick little layout I created for this month’s sketch challenge!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

I had a very craft-filled May, and by the time I got to this project I had one whole sheet of the beautiful Craft o’Clock paper left! There was a time when the thought of using such a “busy” pattern as a background would have terrified me, but I have learned sometimes less is more, so I kept everything else simple! (Sketch below the video)

Check out my video for the process!

May 2020 Sketch

DSC_0002-FRAMED

Behind the smaller cluster in the upper-left corner and behind the photo layers I added a touch of stenciling using the “Golden Glaze” paint (mixed with some 13@rts MAGIC! Powder) and a homemade texture paste that contains some of the “Caribbean Teal” paint, both [paints] from this month’s mixed media kit. Also, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the teal flowers on this layout were from the Prima “vine” that came in the kit! Don’t be afraid to cut things apart if needed to make them work better for your purpose!

DSC_0007-FRAMED

I didn’t want to just plant the photo directly on the background, so I used some torn pieces of papers from the kit, some tissue paper, and the square, white frame from the chipboard (cut apart!) behind the photo! Then I added one of the chipboard tabs!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

The beautiful black and gold butterflies were the final touch needed for this layout! They provide just the right amount of accent!

May sketch challenge layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the May 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. I really love the color story. Another kit I’m really enjoying working with . It is definitely my style.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the May sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here I did a bit of stenciling with some black crackle. I added a cardboard pieces from the cardboard ephemera set. I heat embossed the chipboard piece from my stash.  I used some vintage copper embossing powder on it.

The flowers are from from my stash. I like how they add texture to the layout.

Here you can see a close up of the gorgeous chipboard. More flowers from my stash and the black resin piece is from a past kit.

This handsome young man is my nephew, who was just recently taken from us by someone who thought is was ok to rob him just because they wanted what he had.

So to get through my grief, I have been scrapping pictures of him and remembering what an amazing person he was. He had been through so much (health wise)in his 32 years, but he always had a smile on his face. You will see a lot more of him in the future.
