“Untitled” Layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing an untitled vintage layout created with the October 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Blue Fern Studios  have a great vintage feel to them. 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:

 

How about some close-ups:

I created several layers of different sizes using 3 different sheets of paper. I ripped the edges slightly. The chipboard frame from the kit was covered in clear gesso (this helps the embossing ink adhere), then painted with the mist from the mixed media kit. I love the way it turned out.

Here you can see a better look at the chipboard. I used the same technique on the chipboard butterfly (except I used 2 colors), then added some stickles (from the mixed media kit) for shimmer. I added some trim (from my stash) as layers under my photo. I love how they make the photo pop. You can see a bit of the stenciling I did on the bottom layer of paper.

Here is one of the floral clusters (all flowers are from the kit), the tickets were fussy cut from the ephemera that come in the kit. The chipboard leaves (from my stash) got more of the same treatment as the other chipboard. It really shines under the flowers.

“I was quiet….” October Sketch Challenge Layout

Hello crafty friends! This week I come to you with my sketch challenge layout for October 2020. I really love this beautiful paper line and I knew it would go perfect with a photo of my beautiful daughter Destinee who is my only daughter and the oldest of my children. This paper collection from Blue Fern Studios Jane’s Memoris  which is in the Scrapbook Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

This project was pretty quick coming together because the paper I used is so beautifully detailed that I didn’t want to cover to take anything away from it. I had thought of adding some stenciling but I honestly backed away last minute. Here is some photos of the steps I took to create this!

I began by picking out which paper from the collection I would use from this Blue Fern Studios Jane’s Memoirs collection. I also like using 12×12 sheet of chipboard to back my layout this way it keeps sturdy even if I was to spray inks, water, stenciling, stamping , etc. I added some non brand double sided tape onto the chipboard, I then used Tim Holtz Distress Stain Ground Espresso along the edges of the paper I chose. I then took off the paper off of the double sided tape using my Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick . Once I added my paper, I went over it using my We R Memory Keepers Large Bone Folder.

I then set my layout aside and picked out my photo and frame for my layout. I absolutely love the chipboard frames from Creative Embellishments that was included in this month’s Scrapbook Kit!! I used Ranger Embossing Ink Dauber on the chipboard then added some Lindy’s Stamp gang Embossing Powder Silence Is Golden, I believe it was from a past Tres Jolie Kit. I then let it cool and adhered my photo onto the frame using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever which has a great hold. I then used some scrap chipboard or card board on the back of my photo for dimension and used the same glue to adhere it to the paper. I then began adding the flowers that came in the kit as well as flowers from past kits as well. I used the same glue to adhere everything on this project. The flowers are beautiful 49 & Market flowers , Country Bloom (Punch) & Enchanted Petals (Parchment).

la

I also used some the lace from the Scrapbook Kit as well on my layout with a small flower cluster. For that super cute quote that is on my layout which reads ” I was quiet…..but I was not blind-Jane Austen” I cut it from the Bits-N-Bobs Pack also from the kit. I then used the same Distress Stain that I inked the edge of my paper on this small quote I cut. I then used some dimensional dots to adhere it onto my layout. I lastly added a few pearls from Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Pearls IV Pink Passion around my layout.

I finished with this layout pretty quick as I mentioned before that this paper collection has so much detail in it that you don’t need to add to much embellishing to it. So it came together pretty quick! I hope that you will join up in the challenge! You have till the end of the month to do so! Thanks so much for taking time to read my post! I hope you feel inspired to great beautiful things! xoxo

Hugs,

Jeanne

Tres Jolie Kit Club–October Scrapbooking Kit & Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

This week I’m bringing you my sketch challenge project using this month’s scrapbooking kit. I didn’t do a whole lot to my layout, because I really loved all the detail in the beautiful Blue Fern Studio’s paper and I just couldn’t bring myself to “covering it up”!

Check out the video below to see the simple steps I took to put this layout, featuring a photo of my great-grandmother, together!


Video:


Have you seen this month’s sketch? It’s a beauty!​​

Here is the original sketch: And here is how I rotated it:

Now, how about a few close-ups?

Here you can see how that Shimmerz has just a touch of sparkle to it and pools around the crackle paste, giving a touch of color that goes along with the pinkish-purple of the flowers.​​

Using one of the 49 & Market flower packs found in the kit this month I created three clusters, and under each cluster, I added some extra detail from some fussy cut flowers and lace from another sheet of the Blue Fern Studios paper. Then, for some more detail, I added some texture pebbles and glass glitter from my stash.

I added three layers of Baked Texture (from my stash) to the large chipboard frame found in this month’s kit, added my photo, and used some corrugated cardboard to lift it from the page some so a couple of the flowers could get tucked underneath.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items found in this month’s Scrapbooking Kit!

A tri-fold card, a template and a winner

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful shabby chic/floral kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards, birthdays, weddings or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a love card and used a template to create the base.

This is a 4×6 card.  I used a 6 x 12 sheet of cardstock  to create the base.

Here is the template to download:

Card template

How about some close-ups:

I used the template for the base of the card. Then I decided on my papers for all my sections. I inked all the edges before gluing them down.

I left the inside flap bare, this way I could add whatever sentiment I wanted later. This gives you a better look of how the card folds. I love the mix of patterns on the papers. The chipboard rose is from the kit. I used some diamond stickles from the mixed media kit to make it sparkle.

Here is another view of the back side of the card. You can add little pop-up elements all over this card. They make fun surprises.

 

Now for a winner.

Less Perfection Layout with Rae

Happy Sunday, crafty people!

I am sharing another layout that I made with the October scrapbook kit.  The beautiful shabby chic Blue Fern Studios papers from the Jane’s Memoirs collection have to be one of my favorite collections ever.  I love the colors, especially the dark accents of brown.  This piece of paper with the script images really got me thinking about how a sepia tone picture would look amazing with it, and  I was right!  Here’s what I came up with: For this layout I treated all of the layers by heavily distressing the edges, and soaking the edges in water, then I dipped the edges in a cup of the Nuvo spray in Cocoa Powder from the mixed media kit.  You can see that the Nuvo spray has lots of mica that makes the edges shiny, but only the brown color seeps into the paper fibers, creating a vignette effect.

I cut up several of the images from the “Calling Cards” sheet of paper and layered them. I also sprayed the Creative Embellishments decorative oval frame (the larger one from the kit).  In the closeup below, you can see the silver mica from the spray show up on the chipboard piece.
I had bits of lace left from my other projects, so I cut it up in smaller pieces and stuck them in between the paper layers. The title is from my stash (Prima Marketing), and I added some white gold and rose gold waxes to it so it would blend into the layout a bit.
For the flowers, I added a couple from my stash, and I inked them with brown chalk ink, also to blend the tones of the layout.Here’s another closeup that captures the beauty of the edges of the paper:Thanks for stopping by the blog!

“Courage” Layout with Rae

Hello! Happy Sunday!

Have you seen our sketch for our monthly challenge? Take a look:

So beautiful! I love all the layers! Here’s my take on the sketch:

This Blue Fern Studios Jane’s Memoirs collection is so beautifully designed that I didn’t feel like it needed any stamping or stenciling, so I kept this design pretty simple. For the large layers, I added some lace from my stash. The smaller layers under the picture are just cut from the papers and the Bits and Bobs ephemera pack. The chipboard circle is a basic cut out from my Cameo machine.  I added some mixed embossing powders (gold, silver, and black) for a distressed metal look. The large lace at the bottom of the circle is from the kit, as well as the Prima Marketing and 49 and Market flowers at the ends of the lace. (The blue flowers on this layout and the keys are from my stash from Prima Marketing.)

To complete the look of the design to match the sketch, I added some chipboard pieces. The Butterfly is from Creative Embellishments, from the kit.  I used gold and white embossing powders to achieve that finish. The rest of the chipboard pieces are from my stash.

These two pieces below are a set  from Blue Fern Studios, and they coordinate with the Jane’s Memoirs collection.  I used the same embossing powders on the scroll piece as I did on the circle.  I double embossed this  flower piece- first with white, and then with a green glaze. I “overused” the heat gun until the white started to bubble up.

Lastly, I added a another piece of chipboard from my stash (Prima Marketing), treating it with speckled egg Distress Oxide ink and then sprinkling on some white and gold embossing powders, and added more flowers to frame the title.

My Secret Love Shabby Purse Attache

Hello crafty friends! Today I am here on the Tres Jolie Blog to share with u this month’s first project where I use the October Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie. I absolutely was inspired by the beautiful projects that Tara Brown, a designer for Pion Designs. Her projects stand out and are very unique. So for this project I created, I followed one of her tutorials for this project which is a Purse Attaché.

I made the base with the white card stock that came in the kit, a couple of the papers from the Couture Creations paper collection, some of the ephemera pieces, flowers from the kit and one of the Creative Embellishments Chipboard  as well.

 

I did the base then when I finished cutting the design papers up, I used my Prima distress tool on all of the edges of the papers. Once they were adhered to the base, I went over them with gesso (from a previous Tres Jolie kit) and dry brushed on areas of the project. Once I did the embellishing on the lid and on the front side area, I went over those with the gesso as well. On the chipboard from Creative Embellishments, I used the same gesso on it .

On the lid, I did add a magnet so it would stay shut, I also added a wood piece & some Finnabair Art Pebbles from previous Tres Jolie kits as well.

On the inside I made some tabbed sections, days of the week. On the photo you can kind of see the alphas I used which were some older ones I had in my stash from Basic Grey. They are pretty light so I apologize for my photo being hard to see. I then added some of the post cards from the Ephemera Package in those slots.

But you can make this however you want, you can put month’s on there, or even use this cute purse as a recipe box too. I do hope you like what I created and try it out yourselves. Since the holiday’s are coming up quick, I think these would make cute gifts too. While your on Tara’s website, I hope you will look at all of the beautiful creations she has done through out the years!! See you all next week! Till then I hope you will visit daily to find some of the rest of the Tres Jolie designers share their amazing projects using the Scrapbook and Mixed Media kits! Also don’t forget to join this month’s sketch challenge.

“Dream” Sketch Challenge Inspiration

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a vintage layout created with the October 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Blue Fern Studios are so stunningly gorgeous. 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 layout is based on the October sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

First of all, I flipped the sketch to make it work for this photo. The background sheet already looks like it has torn paper on it, so I just tore a border from another sheet and used it behind my photo. I added a doily as another layer behind my photo.

Both chipboard pieces got the same treatment, just with different colors. I used some liquid pearls to cover them and while still wet I sprinkled on some embossing powder, then heat set them. I love the texture this creates.

The floral cluster has flowers from 2 of the packs included in the kit (the leaves are from my stash). Also include in the cluster is lace from the kit. The key and tickets are fussy cut from the bis-n-bobs cards. I added some foam tape to give them some dimension.

the cluster on this side is fussy cut elements again from the bis-n-bobs cards. I also added a couple of small flowers and lace from the kit and a vintage button from my stash.

Altered Mini Dresser with Rae

Happy Sunday!

I’m excited to share my first project that I made with the October scrapbook kit, featuring the gorgeous Blue Fern Studios collection, Jane’s Memoirs.

I’ve been dying to get these papers to make a mini altered dresser:

I bought this unfinished wood decor from Michaels a while back, and pulled it out just for this kit. I painted the dresser and drawers with a pink acrylic paint, then dry brushed all of the pieces with gesso. I covered the drawers, top, sides, and back with papers from the kit.  I heavily distressed each piece and used white pigment ink on the edges as you can see below.

The drawer pulls are from my stash. Pearl strips that were in a past kit outline the edges of the front of the dresser.  I did the same outline on the back of the dresser.

I usually decorate the back of my projects for a completed look, but I keep it simple.  I cut a piece of paper with this large image and added some of the large white lace trim and some of the Prima Marketing and 49 & Market flowers from the kit.

On the top of the dresser, I added one of the Creative Embellishments oval frames with another image from the paper.  I used a variety of embossing powders to achieve this look.

All of the flowers are from the kit, including the small 49 & Market purple flowers that I added to the sides of the dresser on the Creative Embellishments butterflies.  I used white and gold embossing powders to get that finish.  I added some pearl flourishes to the bottom of the butterfly to mimic a flight trail- those are Prima, from my stash.  The other side is nearly identical, so much so that I accidentally deleted the pictures of it, but it’s the same, I promise! 🙂

To complete the look, I added a small quote, “I was quiet… but I was not blind.” – Jane Austen

And, I tucked in some white lace at the top around the edges.  Here’s another close up:
