Steampunk layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a steampunk layout created with the September 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Scrapboys are amazing and have kind of a steampunk feel. I’m really loving with this kit.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This is the second layout I created based on the September mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I created several layers of different sizes using 3 different sheets of paper. I distressed the edges slightly. The chipboard piece from the kit was covered in clear gesso (this helps the embossing ink adhere), then embossing ink and a tw0-toned embossing powder and heat set. I love the way it turned out.

Here you can see where I used 2 different size doilies (from my stash) as layers under my photo. I love how they make the photo pop. I think the mask was a great little touch.

Here is the floral cluster (all flowers are from the kit), the key is a nice touch. You can see more of the embossed chipboard here as well. It really shines under the flowers..

“Industrial Romance” Hot Air Balloon Mood Board Challenge

Hello again crafty friends! This week I am excited to share with u all this month’s project for the Mood Board Challenge for Tres Jolie Kits! For this project I used the September Scrapbook Kit. This beautiful kit is not only a vintage feel but a steampunk one too!

When I first seen this kit I immediately got the idea I wanted to create a paper Hot Air Balloon. This project had been on my crafty bucket list for a while now when I seen the one that Miranda MsLiberty25 created. I followed her tutorial for the hot air balloon its self. I knew I wanted to add an airship instead of a basket or gondola. So while looking around online, I came across a shop on Etsy who sold some wooden 3-D puzzles. So looking around on their shop, I came across a couple different models, I chose the cheaper and best size I figured would work best. It was a 176 piece puzzle that my husband and I enjoyed creating!! We are now thinking we want to purchase more for us to do together and perhaps get some for our grandsons.

 

I absolutely loved creating this hot air balloon and found this month’s kit went so well with the mood board that Kim has chosen for this month! I do hope that you will enter the challenge this month since it is still open the rest of this month. So I hope that you will join in.

I hope that you have been inspired by the project I created this month for the challenge! This month the rest of the team members of Tres Jolie created some wonderful projects so I hope you check out this blog daily where you can find more inspirational projects. Till next time!! Xoxo

 

XOXO,

JEANNE

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a masculine layout created with the September 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Scrapboys are amazing. I’m really loving with this kit. Masculine layouts are becoming my thing.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the September mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I covered the sheet in clear gesso to prep it for the stenciling and misting I did. Here you can see where I used just the leftover modeling paste on the stencil to create this light design. The stenciling is heavier in other places.

Here you can see more of the stenciling and misting. You can also see the chipboard that I used a textured embossing powder on. There are also a few layers under the photo from papers in the kit. I did a bit of fussy cutting on the pipe frame from one of the sheets.

More layers, chipboard (swirls were cut from gear border) and flowers from the kit. Another fussy cut frame from the papers.

“Vintage Artistry Coral” 3×3 Shabby Notecards

Hello crafty friends! I’m back this month with some beautiful collections again from Tres Jolie Kits! The project I picked to do as my first project were these cute and pretty easy 3×3 notecards. I used the September Cards, Tags, & More Kit to create these.

I began by cutting a few sheets of the 8.5 X 11 white card stock that was included in the kit into 3 X 6 pieces , once you have cut the amount of card bases you are going to want to make then you take your score board & bone folder or score tool and score your base at the 3in mark . Which of course is the center where you will be making your fold.

     

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

   

 

Once you have all of  your card bases folded in half, set them aside . Now you can pick out the papers from the 49 & Market Vintage Artistry Collection(Coral). Once you have chosen the papers you might like to use for your cards. I then cut them about 1/8 inch shorter than the size of the base. After finishing up with those papers, I took my Prima Marketing Distress Tool , you are welcome to use any distress tool or even a pair of scissors to distress the edges of the design paper or you can also choose to leave them without distressing. That is completely your choice. I myself love how it looks a little more shabby with the edges distressed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then adhered the distressed papers onto the folded base. As a side note, I normally like to add colored card stock to the inside of the card, usually the color of the design paper, which in this case had a soft coral color. I add this so you can write down your inside message. I didn’t have any without the texture that would coordinate it so I ended up using American Crafts Textured card stock. But since you won’t be able to actually write on this kind of paper I cut some of the left over white card stock that I used for the base.

I then had to finish up the front so I added some pieces of the 49 & market Vintage Artistry Coral Washi Tape from the kit onto the cards in different directions. I also decided I would add some stenciling to these cute cards . On half of the cards I mixed up some DecoArt Deco Media Crackle Paste with some of the Finnibair Textured Powder from a previous Tres Jolie Kit. I applied it with a spatula onto a Prima Marketing Doily Stencil.

For the other half of the cards I mixed up the same texture/crackle mix and then added some Prima Marketing Color Bloom Spray in Ginger Coral color, although it turned out more pink than I wanted , it still added a little color to the lighter design paper that had a lighter background on it. For these cards I applied the mixture onto the Feather Stencil from Brutus Monroe .  I then used my heat tool to dry them as well as allowing more of the crackles to come thru. They are more noticeable on the ones with the white. I also used the same Crackle Paste on the chipboard butterflies that came with the kit. I did that on half of the cards and for the other half I used some of the butterflies that were in the paper collection perforated sheet. Lastly I added some sentiments from the Finnabair Art Daily Planner Sentiment Booklet and added some snippets of lace on half of them!

There are a variety of projects that you can create with this kit. I just decided that I would create these note cards since I like to add them to swaps , happy mail, or just to say “Hello”! I hope that you enjoyed what I created for my first project using this month’s kit. Keep checking in daily for more projects from my wonderfully talented team mates!! I know you will have lots of great inspiration and I do hope that you will join in this month’s mood board challenge! You can share what you create over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe, there is an album where your entries go in. So try it out! Well I’ll see ya all next Friday with another project!!

Hugs,

Jeanne
