Life is wonderful by Annie

Hello everyone!  Sharing today my last layout for this month’s kit.  I decided to create a layout with contrasting bright colors.  What I did was pretty simple actually : I teared up some papers and adhered them on the back,  put a coat of clear Gesso on everything and then I used some paints (Mint and Purple).

I cut the chipboard frame from Creative Embellishments in 2 pieces and coloured them with the chalk ink Purple. I placed them on top and on the bottom of my photo.

I added gorgeous Prima flowers, Lavender Frost tickets and the resin hearts included in the kit as a finishing touch.

Here are some close-ups :

Let it Be Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!

Today I am sharing a layout I made with the January scrapbook kit.

I started out by creating a mixed media background on the 49 and Market paper. I used a new Prima stencil and chalk paste (from my stash). Then I added some gesso over the stenciling and then added some purple watercolor mixture to make the stenciling blend into the background.

I cut up the Prima Lavender Frost page that had a bunch of the ephemera images, and created some layers for under the photo.

I cut apart the Creative Embellishments rose corner chipboard to place under both flower clusters. I used a purple iridescent embossing powder, then added some white and gold embossing powder over the first layer to create the look. I also added the 7 Gypsies Architextures Ornate Garden stakes to each side of the picture. (I had a pack of those in my stash, so I used one of those so I could use two of the same stake.

I added some doily die cuts under each of the flower clusters as well.

New Beginnings by Ginny

Today I’m back with a layout created with the January Scrapbook kit from Tres Jolie Kits. This kit is so pretty, it is definitely one of my favourites! The papers from Prima Marketing and 49& Market are stunning and as for the flowers….. so pretty…. I hope you are all enjoying creating with it!

For this layout I have gone back to the 49& Market papers. I adore the colour tones in these papers.

 

So here it is….

 

 

 


I used three of the Sweet Reflections papers for this layout, distressing the edges and layering them up, all slightly different sizes.
I added some background stencilling with a stencil and texture paste.

 

The bunting I strung on bakers twine. I dabbed the Prima Chalk ink on the banners to add splashes of lilac colour to them

These flowers are GORGEOUS! If you only buy one of the flower sets from the Prima Lavender Frost collection it has got to be this set – Misty Nights.
I did fussy cut some flowers from the Awakening paper and add to my flower cluster at the bottom of the layout.

 

I added a beautiful piece of lace from my stash to add a soft pretty romantic touch to the layout.

I did use some flowers from the other packs of flowers in the kit too to ‘fill’ in.
I dabbed around the outer edges of the 2 background papers with the chalk ink pad.

Challenge Monday (on Wednesday)

Happy Wednesday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday (but on Wednesday). This month is a Mood Board challenge.

Here is the Mood Board:

This mood board can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the Mood board:

I used a photo I found on Pinterest (there were no photo credits).  I just loved the shabby chicness of this. I was inspired by the upper right and bottom left photos in the mood board.

How about some close ups?

I wanted to go with the softness and colors of the the photos I chose from the mood board. I did some stenciling on the background and used some Glimmer mist in Timeless Lilac.

I cut up the rose border chipboard piece and heat embossed it with Lindy’s pop rock purple embossing powder. I also cut some doilies with dies from my stash. I tucked a few in my flower cluster.

I used the tickets from the kit, plus I cut some of the seed packets from the paper to layer under my photo.  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 Pop Rock Purple embossing powder and Timeless Lilac Glimmer mist are  great matches for this kit. Seedless Preserves Distress Ink is also a good match to use. If you have it in your stash try it out.

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

Join us all month-long as the designers reveal all their projects created with all our amazing kits. We still have kit subscriptions available here. You can also just try out a single kit here.

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 :

Chicken Wire Shadowbox with Rae

Hello there. Today I am sharing my project that I made with the January Mixed Media kit, featuring this 12X12 Chicken Wire Shadowbox, A variety of of paints, including a weathered wood crackle medium, lovely Prima Marketing and Darice flowers, and some gorgeous chipboard elements from Creative Embellishments.

Here’s what I came up with.

I started out by using the purple paint on the wood box. Then I added the crackle medium. Once dry, I added the silver paint which gave the texture of random crackle on the box. Then, I lightly added some more of the purple and silver paints, basically giving it a bit of a dry brushing. Before it dried, I wiped off the paint with a baby wipe, and finished it by adding some purple chalk inks for some variety in color.

Next, I took a piece of the 49 and Market paper from the kit and hand drew a heart to cut out. Then I added some faux stitching with a sewing wheel and black marker. I also added some black lace from my stash around the heart.

Next, I used embossing powders to the chipboard quote and glued it on to the paper. Then I added the flowers from the kit. I had an extra pack of the white Prima Marketing flowers from the kit in my stash, so I used a few from that pack as well.

Lastly, I used embossing powders on the Creative Embellishments chipboard doily, cut it in half, and placed the halves on opposite corners of the shadowbox. I used the remaining purple flowers and a couple of the flowers from the scrapbook kit on the doily pieces.

End result:

November kit 4th reveal by Annie Carignan

 

Hello everyone ! I am sharing today my fourth project for this month.  The focus on this layout is the beautiful resin frame from Prima which is included in the Mixed Media kit.

I coated some clear Gesso on this White 12×12 cardstock. Then I used stencil from the mixed media and Modeling Paste.  I stamped the background with ABStudio stamp and put some color with aquarelle paint from my stash.

I cut different peaces of flowers, leaves and clocks from what I had left over from the scrapbook kit and added them under the photo as well as peaces of chipboard that I painted white.

I used some of the Finnabair glaze on the frame and art stones to create texture.

“Capture” Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing another layout I made with the November scrapbook kit. I fell in love with the “Paradise Dream” piece of paper from the AB Studio Dreamland collection. I loved the small and large butterflies on opposite sides of the page and it made me think of creating a design of a large cluster and a small cluster on top of the butterflies. I kept it simple because I didn’t want the butterfly images to “get lost” on the page.

I started out by adding some stenciling with pink and then grey distress ink in the areas surrounding the two butterflies.

From there, I added a couple of tags to each side. I added some eyelets and thread to the tags. Each cluster got some of the patina gears and Prima Marketing metal clocks peeking from under the tags.

Each cluster also got a photo with lace peeking from under it, some of the 49 and Market pink flowers from the kit, as well as some smaller pink and red ones from my stash which are from 49 and Market also.

I also added a Creative Embellishments chipboard key to each cluster that I embossed with some black and gold powders.

If you are thinking of trying out any of our kits, NOW is the perfect time. We are having a Black Friday Sale RIGHT NOW! Check it out!

“Faire des folies” with Annie Carignan

Hello again everyone !

I am sharing today another layout that I made with beautiful November Scrapbook Kit where we had ABStudio gorgeous products, 49 and Market and Prima flowers along with great chipboards from Creative Embellishments.

For this layout I wanted to work with the feathers, which are not something I normally use so this was a little bit of a challenge for me because I never know where to put them !  So I had this idea of using all of them so they would be the focus of my page.

First thing I did was  gesso the background, then I cut little peaces of paper for the top and the bottom that I adhered making a triangle directed to the center and reaching the bottom. I used AB Studio stencil with Paste.  I took the feathers and adhered them from the top to the center, and from the bottom to the center also. I painted them with white gesso.  I put some  Icing Paste to give color just a little and added   the trim lace on top and bottom.  I finished by adding flowers, tags, bird and Art Stones.

Here are some close-ups :
