Journey: An Altered Gift Box with Rae

Happy Saturday, crafty people!

I’m sharing the last project I made with the November kit today: an altered gift box. I have a hoard of boxes that I save from all kinds of packaging to “upcycle” into prettier things! This box was packaging for a cell phone case:

It was so simple to make! Here’s how I did it:

I started out with this box:

Using the Prima Marketing Icing paste, I panted the edges of the box with a course brush. The paste is thick, but I only wanted the color of it, not the texture. Using a brush with stiff bristles gives me the finish I want.

I carefully paint the sides of the bottom of the box, and the sides of the top one as well. I cover some of the top as well, which I will cover with paper.

Next, I cut out some feathers and the clock from the AB Studio papers, as well as a piece to top the box with.

I cut out a doily using the black AB Studio paper.

I distress the edges of the paper, then apply some pink ink.

I add some script stenciling (The stencil and paste are from my stash.).

I allow it to dry.

Then I add some more pink using these two sprays, and allow the paper to dry.

I add some of the ribbon from the kit to the edges of the top of the box. 

Next, I add layers. This is the first layer of feathers that I add to figure out how many more I can add. 

I add the clock and doily die cut.

And then I add the rest of the feathers, flowers, and metal piece.

I also added a pretty moon charm from my stash. (Prima Marketing Moon Child collection)

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.

  

Here are some close-ups :

The Maze layout by Ginny

I’m back today with my last layout created with the November kit from Tres Jolie Kits featuring the lovely Dreamland papers from AB Studios.
On this layout I’ve used the papers to help create my flower clusters to frame the photo.
Here’s my layout….

I used a torn panel from a floral patterned paper and added it over the neutral background paper, positioning it so the floral cluster comes out rom behind my photo.

I cannot do straight edges but you have probably noticed that by now…
My Mum is horrified when she sees I have torn my paper up again!

I balanced the design of the layout by creating my embellishment flower cluster on the opposite side of the photo.

I added a couple of embellishments to the floral design paper to ‘lift’ the design up off the page.

The tags are all distressed and layered up to look like they are slotted in behind the photo. Dont be frightened to really shabby them up and rip them a bit, they really look like they have been used and pulled in and out from behind the photo a lot!!

I added the chipboard keys to my clusters. These I left in their raw state as I felt the rustic look suited my layout.

 

 

Kit contents used:

AB Studio Dreamland paper collection

49 & Market Vintage Shades – Yellow

49 & Market Seaside Blooms – Natural Blush

49 & Market Blossom Blooms – Linen

Creative Embellishments Chipboard – Keys

“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!

Rustic layout by Ginny

Today I’m sharing a layout with you made with the November scrapbook kit from Tres Jolie Kits featuring papers from AB Studio!
I loved these papers and wanted to combine a couple of them together to contrast each other.
Here’s what I came up with….

I tore a panel out from the floral detail paper which I have layered on top of the dark background paper.

Using the ‘rule of three’ I created the circle details across the layout combining the cogs in the patterned paper with the woven wreath embellishment.

I loved the flowers in the kit this month, soft neutral colours mixed in with the seeded heads and unusual leaves. I incorporated the twisted wire pieces as well into my flower clusters.

I popped flowers underneath and on top of the woven wreath to create a more natural look rather then a ‘plonked’ on look.

I did some stencilling on the background of the dark paper with a black texture paste. I liked this look behind the layered tags.

I popped in some of the cogs to match the colours/blues in the photo and to keep the cog theme going throughout the layout.

Kit contents used:

AB Studios Dreamland paper collection
49 & Market Vintage Shades – Yellow

49 & Market Seaside Blooms – Natural Blush

49 & Market Blossom Blooms – Linen

Creative Embellishments Chipboard – Feathers

AB Studio – Stencil ID 110

Tres Jolie – Patina Metal Gears

“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 :

Live in the Moment

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I’m sharing a feminine layout created with the November scrapbook kit. The kit features papers from AB Studio. For a full list of kit contents please check here.

This kit is so versatile. You can create masculine or feminine layouts with it. It’s full of texture and colors that can go both ways. Here is the kit:

 

Here is my layout create with it:

I went with the soft pink, yellow and green colors from the papers.

Here are some close ups:

I used the mask from the kit to add more texture to the background. This paper was also great for fuzzy cutting elements. I used a lot of those pieces here too.

More of the fussy cut elements, along with the lace, resin feather and metal clock from the kit.  You can see a bit more of the stenciling as well.

There are some great tags to fussy cut as well. I used one here, along with the fuzzy cut leave elements. More lace and a resin clock from my stash.  I added pink and white splatters to complete the look.

That’s all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by.

November Moodboard by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone !! Have you seen this month’s Moodboard ? It is gorgeous and I created a layout with the Mixed Media kit and parts of the Scrapbook kit.

It took me a while to decide how I was going to place my 3 circles (Embroidery Hoops) Here is how it ended up.  I painted all 3 with White Gesso and used AB Studio’s stencil from the Scrapbook kit on the surface.  I mixed Finnabair’s Icing Paste with water and put some on the 3 circles. I then added some texture with AB Studio’s rubber stamp.  When everything was done I felt it needed something more, that is why I put the circles on a background paper where I used the Prima stencil with the Icing Paste.

Here you can see I painted the metal gears and the key chipboard with White Gesso and added beautiful flowers.  I finished off with Arts Stones. The small white words and the round title are from my stash.

Prima – Icing Paste Rose Gold

Prima – Art Stones

Prima – Stencil Flourish

Prima – Love Story Flowers Charlize

Scrapbook Kit Spotlight

Hello, friends!

Today on the blog we are going to get up close and personal with the monthly scrapbook kit. Let’s take a look at what’s in the November kit:

The month, the papers in the kit are from the beautiful Dreamland collection from AB Studio, an international company in Poland, designed by Aga Baraniak. These papers are amazingly gorgeous, and there are MANY images to fussy cut, which can add so much dimension to your layouts.

In addition to many beautiful floral images, there are many options with these papers to create masculine layouts, which really makes them ideal for so many projects.

The one thing that you will notice about Tres Jolie scrapbook kits is that there is an abundance of embellishments- you can easily create 4-5 layouts, possibly using a minimal amount of your own supplies! There is almost always 3 different sets of flowers and many perfectly coordinated items! To see the entire kit up close, if you haven’t already watched the kit contents video for November, here it is:

So far on the blog this month, our design team has shown what you can do with some of the items from the scrapbook kit:

Annie cut out a tag from the papers and used the AB Studio flower stamp  to create some wonderful layers.

Rae cut out many tags and floral elements to create a back drop for the photo, tucking in the patina gears and Prima clock, added some of the lace trim under the photo, and added the yellow and green 49 and Market flowers.

Ginny also used the AB Studio stamp to create a rustic layout, keeping the Creative Embellishments chipboard (feathers and keys) in their “naked” state, adding the lace, Prima clocks and the Kraft color 49 and Market flowers and elements for this design.

As you can see, there are so many ways to use this kit that is chock full of amazing products this month, and every month! Be sure to check out the blog frequently for more spotlight videos and inspiration from our design team!

So Much Goodness Layout with Rae

Hello, and Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing another layout I made with the November scrapbook kit.

I love these papers so much-they are sophisticated and so versatile, and a lot of the designs are perfect for scrapping masculine layouts!

Some photos you just have to scrap right away and this is one of those. Because there is so much blue in the photo, I knew I’d need to pull some blue media and flowers from my stash.

I started out using the AB Studio stencil from the kit and some dark blue ink to create a background that would peek out from under the design. It’s faint, but I like the subtle effect.

I added quite a few paper layers, some I ripped, and others have more structure, including the large banner. I also added several pieces of chipboard- an ornate frame from my stash you can see peeking out under the picture. I added a chipboard title from my stash that I added both black and dark blue ink to.

I also added the chipboard feathers from the kit as part of the flower clusters. I treated the feathers with Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in aged marine.

In the flower clusters, I used the gorgeous 49 and Market Kraft colored flowers from the kit, as well as some old Petaloo blue flowers from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!
