April sketch challenge layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the April 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from 13 @rts are so pretty. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. 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 April sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

On this side I used some paper strips from the kit and just layered the. I added some pieces from the ephemera set and used pop dots to add dimension.I also cut up the chipboard piece from the kit. Here I used some vintage green/gold embossing powder on it.

The flowers are from the kit. The white lace flower is from my stash.

Here you can see a close up of the gorgeous chipboard. Behind the photo are more layers of paper strips and ephemera.

I did some stamping all around the photo with black ink and a music note stamp from my stash.

Hump Day Two for One!!

Happy Hump Day!!  Today I’m working predominately with the March Scrapbook kit.  I normally stick with the Mixed Media kit but this month the scrapbook kit looked so amazing that I had to get it!

I am somewhat out of practice with my scrapbooking but I had to give it a go and do some catching up on some of my pics.  Since I wasn’t sure of my direction I didn’t do a video but rather took pictures as I went to show you how it came together.

I started out with the clover chipboard circle and painted it with some of the olive green acrylic paint from the mixed media kit I got this month.

Next I applied the gel medium (also from the mixed media kit) to the edges of the clovers and sprinkled two kinds of glitter on them.

I then set that aside and smeared on some gold crackle texture paste from my stash to the left corner of my page to both add a crackle element as well as to adhere my chipboard clovers down to the page.

I then positioned my photo and clovers and pressed them into the paste.  I added a bit of adhesive to the top corners of the photo to make sure it stayed in place.

I also added a few flowers tucked in the scrolls of the chipboard to give it a finishing touch.

Here is a pic of the complete Scrapbook kit.

NOW…for my BONUS project!!  As I said, I’m normally a mixed media gal…so I had my March mixed media kit that I still had TONS of supplies left in (because it was packed this month y’all!) and since I’m a jewelry maker by trade I whipped up this little cutie!

For this one you just need to use an epoxy graft glue like E600 to glue the metal pieces together (you can use hot glue in a pinch but it may not last after a bit of wear).  Next attach the chain with jump rings using a couple pair of needle nose jewelry pliers, adding a clasp at the back.

Here is the complete mixed media kit below.

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:

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,

Tres Jolie Kit Club–February Sketch Inspiration

Hi All! I’m back with one last project this month! A layout of me using the sketch from this month’s challenge as inspiration!

Here I am, a little four year old just hanging around!

Febuary 2020 sketch

The sketch for this month’s challenge. Watch the following video to see how I created my layout!

After coating the papers in gesso, I stamped, stenciled, and inked before adding the embellishments and photo.

My final touch was to cover the photo then use a paintbrush to splatter and drop some “Black Soot” Distress paint on the whole project.

Memories Layout with Rae

Hi, everyone!

Today I’m sharing my last project that I have made with the February scrapbook kit. This layout features my favorite sheet of paper from the kit. It’s one of those papers that looks amazing all on its own! So, I knew that when I used it, I wasn’t going to add mixed media techniques, and it was going to be a sort of palette-cleansing project so that that beautiful piece of paper would stand out in the design. This is what I came up with: I adore the wood image with peeling paint or wall paper maybe!

The only treatment that the paper got was some “swervy” cutting along the edges, and some brown chalk ink on the edges.  You can see a closeup of this below: 

The Creative Embellishments heart chain pieces are so lovely!  I embossed them with Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in shabby white.  I also used a piece of chipboard from my stash- I added some white gesso, then inked it with green chalk ink, and then I dry brushed some pink wax on it.

I kept the flower clusters pretty simple, adding some white gesso to the flowers and leaves.  I also added some of the Prima “Say it in Crystals” from the kit.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!  Keep an eye out for some sneaks for our March kits!

Sketch Challenge

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the February 2020 scrapbook kit. The  papers from Lemoncraft are so girly and pretty. They are pefect for any Valentine’s Day project or gift. I’m really enjoying working with this kit.

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the February sketch. I love the softness of this kit.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

 I used some clear gesso on the background first, then did some light stenciling. Once dry I added lots of stamping with some archival ink. The chipboard swirls are from my stash and I used some clear gesso  and then embossed them.

I used some cutouts from the ephemera sheet to layer behind my photo. I also used a die cut doily with some hearts on it. The cardboard clock is from my stash. Here you can see more of the stamping.

Here is my cluster on the other side. More stamping. The resin piece came from my stash. I added flowers and a piece of flair from the kit.
