A layout and and Video

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the June 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are amazing. I’ve done something different with this layout. If you want to know, you’ve got to scroll down.

“Why” Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday, everyone!

By now you’ve probably seen that the June scrapbook kit features the gorgeously vintage collection “In the Past”  from AB Studio.  This is the second layout I’ve made with the kit so far:
I started out with adding some inking and stenciling to my background paper.  I used some stitch line stamps with black archival ink.  I made two “rows” or layers of the framing.  Next, I used some grey distress ink and a stencil that would peek out from the design cluster, as well as the corners of the page.

AB Studio always has amazing images to cut out- I used a lot of the cut outs as layers behind my photo, as well as the 49 and Market stitched frames from the kit.  The crotched lace is also from the kit: I lightly inked the lace and used a file to tatter the edges for a distressed look. (The tiny clips are from my stash: Tim Holtz.)
In the closeup above you can see the Bottle Cap letters that I used for the title: they were very bold, so I toned down the painted part by adding some brown distress oxide ink, then wiping it with a paper towel.

You can also see the music notes chipboard- only one came in the kit, but I had two, and thought it would be nice to use them both.  I added some Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder that we received from a kit a couple of months ago.
 In the flower clusters, I used flowers from the kit, but wanted to add some smaller flowers as well so I used some Prima flowers from a past kit to compliment this month’s flowers.  I also added some jewel flowers from my stash. (Tim Holtz Assemblage jewelry)  I also added some vine die cuts using another piece of paper from the kit.  I also added two of the metal clocks from the kit as well.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Sketch Challenge

Hey, all!

Today I’m bringing you the project I did for this month’s sketch challenge (sketch image below the video)! I love A.B. Studio papers, and I almost always think they should be turned into some kind of notebook or journal! Maybe it’s because they are so all so awesome I just want to see them all at once! And with Tres Jolie Kits, I get to see a lot of A.B. Studio!
DSC_0001-FRAMED

I didn’t entirely think up this project on my own, I knew I wanted to do a journal, but I didn’t necessarily want to do a full junk journal. The A.B. Studio Instagram solved my problem when I saw an accordion fold mini album on a post (using the same paper line, none the less)!

Check out my video below!



Original Sketch Mirrored Sketch
sketch Sketch-Mirrored

I used the mirrored sketch as my journal cover, and included the tag and clock elements! Sketches don’t always have to be for layouts!

I’ve included images of the inside of my journal if you’d like to see it closer!

Here’s a little something that I didn’t think of until after the video was done:

Front of paperclips Back of paperclips

I just grabbed up a couple of jumbo paperclips, some of the same burlap I used in the journal, a couple of the typewriter tiles from the kit, and glued them together with some E6000.

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this month’s scrapbooking kit! Don’t forget to join our sketch challenge over in the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Spring Plank

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! Today I am bringing you a spring-themed plank I put together using items from my stash and the April Mixed Media Kit!

DSC_0014_FRAMED

I just used a bit of old board for my background, added some gesso, then started layering! Check out the video for the whole process!


Video:


DSC_0015_FRAMED

For the background color I used the two Magical Shakers from the kit like watercolors. On the chipboard diamonds and window I sprinkled them on then spritzed them with some water.

DSC_0016_FRAMED

I mixed the glass glitter from the kit with some gel medium then just spread it on randomly to add some shine to the piece.

DSC_0019_FRAMED

With the background done, it was just a matter of layering the other parts of my piece!

DSC_0018_FRAMED

My final addition was a few of the pearls from the kit. I put them on 3” (76mm) pins and them stuck them in where I wanted them.


April Mixed Media Kit

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2020 Moodboard– “Emerald Queen” Junk Journal

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I have an example project, a junk journal, for this months moodboard challenge!

DSC_0057-FRAMED

I was in love with the “Emerald Queen” line by AB Studio that came in this months scrapbooking kit as soon as I saw the photos! And when I saw the books on the moodboard, I knew I’d be making a junk journal! And it was serendipitous that the green fabric image (above the clocks) fit with some sari silk I had already prepared for use! Below the moodboard image I have two video links, one is a flip-through of the completed journal and the other is a process video.

On the spine I let some of the fibers from The Paper Studio peek through the zipper, then added a Prima Vintage Trinket! I added some “Sage” Embossing Powder by Ranger to the chipboard from the kit and added it to the layers on my cover.

DSC_0062-FRAMED

Here you can see the many various laces I used along the edges of the pages!

DSC_0058-FRAMED DSC_0059-FRAMED

I layered some scraps of fabric, lace, and a zipper from an old jacket with items from this months kit on the cover, “holding” them in place with clips from my stash!

DSC_0060-FRAMED

The band I used to hold the junk journal closed is a headband! I found packages of them on clearance one time and it suddenly dawned on me that they would be great for junk journals!

Mood Board Challenge Book Card

Hello crafty peeps!! This week I’m excited to share with u this Book Card that I created for this month’s Mood Challenge! I absolutely love love this  from Tres Jolie! I decided to create this simple book card.

 

 

 

I had made one of these a few years ago following a tutorial on YouTube. 

I used a thick white American Crafts card stock for my base and then used one of the sheets from the scrapbook kit. I used some of the flowers as well.

 

I used a piece of ephemera from my stash and a super cute vintage girl photo that was given to me by a crafty friend!  I then fussy cut a flower from one of the 12×12 sheets that had a variety of color and size of flowers on it. Lastly I added a piece of cotton ivory lace around the inside border of the card.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you will check out this tutorial and give it a try. These make such beautiful and fun gifts!! I look forward to seeing what everyone has created for this month’s Mood Board Challenge! Until next month crafty friends!

 

HUGS,

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:

In the above photos you can see where I added the “Daffodil” Shimmerz Creameez & “Milled Lavender” Distress Oxide Spray!

DSC_0017_FRAMED

For the lattice behind the shutters I added some “Buttercup” Embossing Powder from my stash to one of the Creative Embellishment pieces found in this months kit! And the bird? One I had left from the December 2019 Scrapbooking Kit!

DSC_0020_FRAMED

DSC_0018_FRAMED

It doesn’t happen all the time, but sometimes I feel the need to add tons of flowers! Fortunately Kim makes sure there are flowers to spare in her kits, because two of the three additional flower packages I had saved from previous months! (In total I have five flower packs on here, two from this months kit, two from previous months, and one I actually bought myself!)


January Scrapbooking Kit:
