In The Arms of Love

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the October scrapbook kit. The papers from Craft O’Clock are so nice, they are very verstile. 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.

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

I used a black and white photo that was taken of hubby and I on our anniversary cruise. I did use a few flowers from a past kit (the big brown ones). I painted the  chipboard using the mediums from last month’s MM kit.  I used the green ink in the kit to do a bit of stamping. The background got some stenciling and misting, again using the mediums from last months MM kit.

How about some close-ups:

I added some micro beads to the flowers once the layout was complete. I used copper and black.

You can see a bit of the stamping in green.

Here you can see the stenciling. I used crackle paste from a past MM kit.

What I really love is that Crystal didn’t do a traditional scrapbook layout. She was able to take inspiration and make this amazing mini album. I love the shabby chicness to it. My favorite part is all the elements that continue off the page. I think it give this mini so much dimension.

Beach, Sun and Sand by Annie

Hello everyone ! I am back today with another layout made with August Scrapbook Kit :

I really loved doing this layout, I love it !

The first thing I did is apply White Gesso mixed with water on the surface because I wanted to do a wash over the patterns.  I then teared a peace of patterned paper and adhered it in the middle.

After that I used the Stencil included in the kit with Modeling Paste.  I put a coat of Clear Gesso on it because I knew I would use Watercolor.

I made different layers with different papers, a frame and vellum included in the flower package. I like creating a 3D effect with peaces of cardstock that I recycle from boxes or packages.  This time I used watercolor after everything was in place.  At the very end I added some Art Stones and chipboards from my stash for the title.

My Guys (Mood Board Challenge)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board with a twist challenge.

Some may say what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board, with a twist. What is the twist you might ask? Well, we decided to use a specific color palette to go along with the images we chose. So you have more to be inspired by.

Doesn’t this get your mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by some of the images. I just love clocks for masculine layouts. I went with the cards and the spade (used the image and color).

I love this photo, it is the last one I have of my dad and my husband before my dad died a month later.

How about some close-ups.

Hubby hates when I add flowers to layouts of him, so I only added a few. To make the few I added less feminine, I added a nut to it that says memories.  All these items, except for the stencil and black gesso are from the kit.

 

I have had these alphabet playing cards in my stash forever. They worked perfectly on this layout. That frame in the background came in a pack of flowers in the kit.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.

Place your entries in the August2019 Challenge folder on Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe Facebook page. All are welcome to enter, however we’d love to see what you do with our kits.

This challenge ends on August 31st, 2018 at 11:59 pm CST.

Mini-album with Scrapbook Kit by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

Today, I am presenting a mini-album I made with the Scrapbook Kit.  I had done a mini-album a few years ago with a similar collection that was for boys.  That is why I decided to do the same, but this time, with pictures of my daughter 🙂 (Check out the small walk through at the end).

This is what inspired me :

 

I took a 12×12 paper from the kit trimmed half of it.  I took a stencil from my stash and some Paste to cover the surface.

 

Once that was dry, I took the inks included in the kit mixed with water and put some on the paper.  Since it was a little bit pale, I decided to add some darker watercolour.

I cut that peace of paper in half, making 2 3×12 strips.  I folded every 3 inch and used washi tape to put the 2 peaces together doing an accordeon.  I ended up doing another strip because I had too many photos !

 

On every page, I used peaces of different papers from the kit, I used a square punch and a circle punch.  I cut out some shoes from a paper and also words you can find on the bottom strips of the 12×12 papers.  I used some flowers too.  The title of the album was made with letter dies.

Here is the final result :

Love this Life layout with the June Kit

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing another layout created with the June scrapbook kit. I really love the 49 & Market papers in the kit. They are so soft and pretty. If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

Here is the layout I created with it:

Almost everything is from the kit. The big chipboard piece is from my stash.

How about some close-ups:

All the flowers, leaves and the resin are from the kit. I just love the way this cluster turned out.

 

The doily is from my stash. I’ve had it for a while. It was the perfect match for this layout. The green stamp is part of the matching embellishment pack from 49 & Market. You get so many pieces and they are great to use all over your pages.

Just another close-up of the gorgeous flowers included in the kit.

Journal spread by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !

Last week I showed you my Journal Cover, today I am showing my first journal spread.  This page was made with the Cards, Tags and more kit of course !

The 1st thing I did what choosing a card from the kit with the quote number 39 that says :

“Feel inspired by all the colors of the Rainbow. What does your personal rainbow look like ?”

That is when I thought of kids, instantly.  I took my watercolors and started to put some on the left side and with water, I made the colors drop from one side to the other. Like this :

 

Once the paint was dry, I took different stamps from my stash and put them all over the spread.  I adhered the card I had chosen and added some words from the kit with cute small flowers.

 

I finished with some journaling about my inspiration :

 

 

 

I hope this will help you to be inspired and just start creating without overthinking it ! Don’t be afraid to just start something and see where it takes you 🙂
