LOVE by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !!

I am sharing today a layout made with January’s Scrapbook Kit. It is beautiful and so romantic, I just loved playing with it !  There are so many possibilities with this kit ! Layouts, cards, mini-albums, Project Life, whatever you want.

Here is a little walk through of my background process : As you can see, I chose a flower stencil with paste but any stencil can do the trick and you  can use any paste, light, medium, heavy, clear or white, doesn’t matter : as long as you add texture.

I used my watercolors with water to add color and splashes. As you can see on the photo, I cut out some flowers from some of the papers.  Big flowers on a paper can sometimes be overwhelming for some people, but don’t be scared to cut them out to use them as an embellishment.  That is what I did by adding them to the layout with 3D foams under to add thickness.

I also like to add splashes of White Gesso mixed with water.

Here are some close-ups :

 

 

 

I created tags with papers in the kit :

Celebrating by Ginny

Hi everyone, 

Welcome to my last post for the month featuring the December Kit for TRES JOLIE KITS.

Today I’m sharing with you a scrapbook layout created with the gorgeous Maja Design Joyous Winterdays paper collection.

Lets show you some close ups and details of the layout….

I used lots of layers in this layout, using all the lovely patterns and designs in this paper collection.

I inked edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I used the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit, to add some holly texture paste detail to the background paper.

I also used the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit and dropped it into glue on top of all the flowers and leaves to add a real wintery feel to the embellishments.

The Kaiser pearls in Denim I added in swirls coming from the flower clusters and the odd single one dotted around.

I love this photo from a recent visit with my parents to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary!

I had a piece of the Holly and Berry border left over from another layout, so I used it on this layout. 

I covered it with SnowTex from my stash, to give it a snowy look about it and then again dropped some Art Sugar into it.

Merry Christmas Shadow Box with Rae

Hello!

Today I am sharing the last project I made with the December kit. After making my sketch layout and my stocking bunting, I was down to scraps of paper and bits and pieces from the kit! So, I had to come up with something small, and kind of basic. Here it is:

This little shadow box is made with scraps of the Maja Design paper, and the amazing Creative Embellishments holly frame.

I used one of the boxes from the Tim Holtz vignette box set and one of his metal stands, both from my stash.

I covered the box with scraps of the red Maja paper that I cut to size, distressed, and inked with brown ink on the edges.

Then I cut the red border away from the picture of the Santa, so it would fit in the box, and what do you know? That border was the PERFECT size to the front of the box, so I inked that and glued it on as well. Once all the paper was glued to the outside of the box, I added some white gold wax paste to the edges.

I also added some of wax paste to the metal base that I already white washed with gesso.

After I distressed and inked the Santa picture, I glued inside the box.

I used Stampendous aged green embossing powder on the Creative Embellishments holly frame, then added some of the white Kaisercraft pearls to the small circles. TIP: I always use a heat tool on my pearls after I have place them on my project to heat up the glue- if you press the pearls down when the glue is warm, it will really stick! There’s need to add extra glue or Glossy Accents to each of the pearls if you do this!

Lastly, I added a title cut from one of the bottom of the Maja papers, and added a red poinsettia from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!

Here is my wintery themed layout with myself and my favourite girlie ! ❤ ….

The top background paper, Glisten, was heavily distressed round the edges and then backed onto the main background paper, Cozy Inside.

The photo is backed onto paper Frost.

I added the title strip from one of the papers as a border across the layout.

The chipboard title was covered with Nuvo Cryatsl drops.

I covered the chipboard with the silver Nuvo Crystal Drops and dropped the Antique Silver Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit onto it whilst still wet.

I added Nuvo drops all round the layout.

I loved the cute shovel which I nestled in the flower cluster.

I added the Art Sugar to some of the flowers and silver leaves too.

I finished by adding some of the ‘snow’ from the mixed media kit to the shovel and the flower clusters.

Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday. This month is a layout sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Although this is a layout sketch, it can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a photo I found on Pinterest (there were no photo credits).  I just loved the contrast of the black gates up against the white snow and those pretty wreaths.

How about some close ups?

I started with the flowers. They weren’t the right shade of green for me, so I changed the color with some Lindy’s cathedral pines green mist. while they were wet, I flattened them out some. I also cut off a piece of the poinsettia vine.

I cut up the holly and berry border chipboard piece and heat embossed it with lindy’s oakleaf olive embossing powder. I also embossed and cut up some of the snowflake chipboard pieces from my stash. I tucked a few in my flower cluster. I popped the layers up with foam tape.

I used a small berry cluster from my stash on the bottom along with flowers.  I tucked in a small piece of lace on the bottom.

Here is my little tip for the week: I have found that Lindy’s Oakleaf Olive embossing powder and Cathedral Pines Green mist are  great matches for this kit. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the sketch. Don’t forget to load your entries in the sketch challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

Believe Christmas Bunting and Tutorial with Rae

Happy Saturday, friends!

I’m excited to share a piece of holiday decor I made using the December scrapbook kit. I’ve been working on making buntings to hang in my house for all seasons. So far I’ve made one for Autumn and Summer, and now a Christmas one. I decided to make this holiday bunting with stockings instead of banners for a festive twist. The Maja Design Joyous Winterdays collection is perfect for a classic, vintage piece of decor.

Here it is:

I started by cutting out 7 stockings, one for each letter in the word “Believe.” I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut these out, but the shape is pretty basic, so you could draw one by hand and cut it out without a machine. 🙂

 

When I cut the stocking and the top, I did so at different times so I could get the right fit, but using the other side of the page.

I also wanted to add an oval to the middle of each stocking, so I picked an oval die that would work with the left over paper from each stocking.

Once cut out, I distressed each piece, and added some dark grey chalk ink. 

I cut out some oval frames using some glitter cardstock from my stash to put under the oval that I cut out from the Maja Design paper. Then I added foam tape to both layers to give the project some dimension. I normally use cardboard to “pop up” my layers, but on a project like this where it will be hanging, I don’t want that to be visible in between the layers.

Once I had all of the ovals glued to the stockings, I decorated each one using items from the kit. I loved these silver and mint green flowers, but I wanted to give them a heavily frosted look without losing the shape, so I added embossing liquid to them, then poured this glittery embossing powder over them, shook them off, and then used a heat tool to set the powder.

They weren’t 100% covered, and I love the look! If you don’t have a glittery embossing powder, you can simply add glitter to any embossing powder to get the same results. 

I tried to get the same or similar design on all of the stockings. I added some letters that I cut with my Cameo from some scrap paper, then added the dark grey chalk ink in a distressed fashion. After I glued down the letters, I traced each of them (seen in the final pictures) with a white ink pen so they could be easily seen.

I added the silver and white flowers treated with the embossing powder, then added the Prima Marketing Sweet Peppermint silver leaves. I also cut up the Prima Vintage Christmas Poinsettia Kiss vine/stem so I could tuck them under the flower cluster. I also cut out some of the little kids, snowmen, and Santas from the papers to include in the clusters.

Then I added some of the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the kit (Holly border and frame pieces) that I cut up. I used some Stampendous shabby green embossing powder to get the effect you can see in the pic below. To finish off the design, I added some of the Kaisercraft white pearls to the oval frame.

Once done with all seven of the stockings, it was time to hang them up. Here’s how I added the ribbon:

I started by using my Crop-a-Dile to punch a hole at the top of each stocking.

Next, I used the Crop-a-Dile again on the ribbon. Becasue of the material, the holes wouldn’t be solid. but it ters the fabric enough to be able to make a hole.

Then, I added a grommet, making sure to keep the ribbon straight.

For added interest, I added some of these Prima metal snowflakes from my stash to each of the stockings.

And now they are ready to hang.

Here’s a close up of each stocking:

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Be sure to check back all month to see what the rest of the design team has made with all of the kits.
