Celebrating by Ginny

Hi everyone, 

Welcome to my last post for the month featuring the December Kit for TRES JOLIE KITS.

Today I’m sharing with you a scrapbook layout created with the gorgeous Maja Design Joyous Winterdays paper collection.

Lets show you some close ups and details of the layout….

I used lots of layers in this layout, using all the lovely patterns and designs in this paper collection.

I inked edges with vintage photo distress ink.

I used the stencil from the Mixed Media Kit, to add some holly texture paste detail to the background paper.

I also used the Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit and dropped it into glue on top of all the flowers and leaves to add a real wintery feel to the embellishments.

The Kaiser pearls in Denim I added in swirls coming from the flower clusters and the odd single one dotted around.

I love this photo from a recent visit with my parents to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary!

I had a piece of the Holly and Berry border left over from another layout, so I used it on this layout. 

I covered it with SnowTex from my stash, to give it a snowy look about it and then again dropped some Art Sugar into it.

I tore a large triangular piece of co-ordinating paper, Christmas Time, to go with my chosen background paper, Make Decorations. I edged it with some Distress Ink.

I used the paints from the Mixed Media Kit to paint the chipboard Holly & Berry Frame, which I cut into two pieces.

The photo was backed on the Frost paper.

The bunting pieces I created from paper Playful

.

I used the Kaiser Pearls to add to some chipboard from my stash to create Mistletoe.

The title chipboard I covered with Viva Inka Gold from my stash just by rubbing it over with my finger.

The vine I shaped around the photo to carry on the circular design started with the chipboard frame.

Frost Layout by Ginny

Hi all, 

Welcome to another post featuring the December Scrapbook Kit from TRES JOLIE KITS.

This kit features papers from Maja Design Joyous Winterdays collection, flowers from Prima Marketing and chipboards from Creative Embellishments. What is there not to love?!

Here is my wintery themed layout with myself and my favourite girlie ! ❤ ….

The next photos show you a few close ups with details of my work.

The top background paper, Glisten, was heavily distressed round the edges and then backed onto the main background paper, Cozy Inside.

The photo is backed onto paper Frost.

I added the title strip from one of the papers as a border across the layout.

The chipboard title was covered with Nuvo Cryatsl drops.

I covered the chipboard with the silver Nuvo Crystal Drops and dropped the Antique Silver Art Sugar from the Mixed Media kit onto it whilst still wet.

I added Nuvo drops all round the layout.

I loved the cute shovel which I nestled in the flower cluster.

I added the Art Sugar to some of the flowers and silver leaves too.

I finished by adding some of the ‘snow’ from the mixed media kit to the shovel and the flower clusters.

Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday. This month is a layout sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Although this is a layout sketch, it can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a photo I found on Pinterest (there were no photo credits).  I just loved the contrast of the black gates up against the white snow and those pretty wreaths.

How about some close ups?

I started with the flowers. They weren’t the right shade of green for me, so I changed the color with some Lindy’s cathedral pines green mist. while they were wet, I flattened them out some. I also cut off a piece of the poinsettia vine.

I cut up the holly and berry border chipboard piece and heat embossed it with lindy’s oakleaf olive embossing powder. I also embossed and cut up some of the snowflake chipboard pieces from my stash. I tucked a few in my flower cluster. I popped the layers up with foam tape.

I used a small berry cluster from my stash on the bottom along with flowers.  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 Oakleaf Olive embossing powder and Cathedral Pines Green mist are  great matches for this kit. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the sketch. Don’t forget to load your entries in the sketch 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.

Noel Plaque by Ginny

Hello all, 

This week I’m sharing with you my project created with the December Mixed Media Kit from TRES JOLIE KITS.

I loved this project and had so much fun creating it. I added a few different techniques to it.

I wanted to create a shabby/weathered look to the plaque.

Lets have a look!


Here is a quick photo guide on the process…..

I firstly gave the plaque a coat of the green paint.

I dried this with a heat tool to speed the process up. 

Next I covered the plaque with a thick layer of the off white paint. 

Then Dried it. 

When fully dry I rubbed over places of it with some sand paper to rub back though the layers to reveal the green paint and the wood underneath. 

I then used some crackle medium from my stash in three patches on the plaque. The crackle medium I used does takes a good 24/48 hours to crack and dry but the wait is worth it.

The ‘believe’ I painted with the red paint and then when dry covered in the crackle medium again. Thick in places to crack and not so in others – this is where it looks a bit white where there isn’t the layer of medium to crack but I like the effect.

when dry and cracked I rubbed over the Opal Magic so that it filled the cracks. This really accentuated the cracks, I loved the way it turned out! 

I added the Opal Magic to the crackle patches on the plaque too!

Next some fussy cutting from the papers in the main Scrapbook Kit.

This was the base to main design. I used hot glue to fix one of the floral embellishments, as this a big piece to fix firmly.

I added a lovely gold mesh bow to the back of the floral piece.

The second floral embellishment piece I cut up so I could create a smaller cluster….

…..And made this arrangement on the opposite side of the ‘believe’.

I added the fake snow around the floral cluster by dropping it into wet glue and leaving it to dry and then shaking the excess off after when dry.

I finished off by rubbing some Viva Ink Gold around the edges of the ‘believe’ and the outside edges of the plaque and dropping some of the glitter on to the background that had fell off the floral embellishments….. I never waste anything!!! 

Here are some close ups of the finished project.

Bottle Tag and Card set

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to share my first set of projects from the Card, Tags and more kit.

 Let’s first take a look at this months kit.

 

This kit is filled with lots of paper to create plenty of holiday tags and cards.   Plus plenty of embellishments (for a full list of contents see here).

Here is my first project. It is a holiday bottle Tag and Card set. These were very simple, yet fun to make.

How about some close ups:

For the both pieces, I used the same papers. I cut the bases out of the green cardstock. I used 2 separate sheets of paper for the layers. I used the same process for both. The bottom layer is patterned paper, then cardstock, then another sheet of patterned paper.

The chipboard titles are from the kit and I just heat embossed them with some red tinsel embossing powder from my stash. The white flower and balls are from my stash.

For the top of the bottle tag, I used my 1 3/4 punch for the hole. It’s a good size for almost any bottle. I embelleshed the top with pearls for the kit. It’s hard to see, but I also used some crystal stickles on both to give it a bit of shimmer.

Today’s tip: The dimensions for the bottle tag are 3 inches wide x 9 inches lone. The top is scored at 3 inches. Look for a video later this month.

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

‘Roxy’ by Ginny

Happy December everyone!

I cannot quite believe we are in December already. The Christmas shopping is nearly done, I’m not quite sure how I have managed to be so organised with that?!
But it does mean we have the December Kit from Tres Jolie Kits to enjoy and create beautiful layouts and projects!

This months papers are from Maja Design. I love Maja papers and this winter/ Christmas themed collection are as beautiful as ever!

So here is my first project made with the Scrapbook kit.
I love this kit because you can make your Christmas layouts with it but it works really well for non- Christmas layouts too!

Here are a few close ups with some details of how the layout was put together.

I based the design around a cut circle. The edges distressed and inked with a Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
The photo of Roxy I have backed with 3 paper layers, all distressed.


There is a small amount of stencilling behind the circle. This is a subtle effect in the background.
The circle is backed with a piece of cardboard (from the kit postal packaging) to lift it off the background paper. This gives the layout much more depth.
The background paper was heavily inked with Rusty Hinge and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. These colours blend so well with Roxy’s coat colours!

The chipboard Holly from Creative embellishments I simple changed by sponging distress ink Walnut Stain all over it, again this was so it blended with Roxy’s colouring and kept the neutral tones going in the layout.

I highlighted the layout by adding the pale yellow, cinnamon coloured flowers to add a little contrast to the rest of the layout.

I added some silver Nuvo crystal drops in random places in groups of 3 dots, I always remember the rule of 3??!

The Prima Resin Icon pieces are from a previous Tres Jolie Kit, but I thought the colours of them fitted perfectly with the grey flowers in this months kit.
