Simple , Unique But Beautiful Layout

Hello crafty friends! This week I am back sharing a layout where I have created my own background design for my layout!

I really loved creating this layout using this month’s Cards, Tags & More Kit

You can view a quick process video of how I created this using a few, simple supplies that you most likely have in your crafty stash!!

 

I began by adhering a 12×12 sheet of light yellow card stock from American Crafts , onto a 12×12 white chipboard sheet. I then trimmed a sheet of white card stock to that yellow one but before adhering it I went along the edges using some of the Tonic Studios Embellishment Nuvo mousse   in Custard cream. I then applied some 13@arts White Gesso from a previous kit onto areas of the card stock for when I add some colors using a shimmer spray from Recollections Simply Pastel Yellow and I also added some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Spun Sugar. I heat dried it then added some white cheese cloth for some added dimension.

I then added some of the lace from the kit and then I took a couple of sheets from the Simple Stories Vintage Garden District Paper Pad from the kit and tore some of pieces of paper to add onto the edges mainly . Before adhering the torn paper to the layout I went over the edges using one of my favorite products, the Tonic Studios Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Custard Cream color.

I want the frames from the collection to be my main focus on my layout.  Then on back of the frames I had added some light pink card stock from the kit and some pop dots which made it easier for me to add the photos of my grand daughters since I hadn’t printed them and added them right away to my layout.

So that was basically a quick over view of my project! I hope that you liked what I came up with using this month’s kit and also please don’t forget that you still have time to enter the 2 year anniversary challenge going on this month for Tres Jolie Kits!!

Talk to you all soon!! Hope u have a great weekend!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Welcoming a new Designer

Hi everyone, Kim here. Join me today in welcoming a new designer to our team. Although you have seen some of her designs, she is officially starting with the July kits. Without further ado, I introduce to you…

Cristina Cunningham

Hi, I’m Cristina. I live in NY and am a mom of two 20-somethings and a new grandma to my sweet
Andrew. I’ve been crafting in one way or another since college, but discovered scrapbooking when my oldest was born and my love for papercrafts grew from there. My style is very shabby and feminine. My favorite projects revolve around memory keeping, but I also enjoy making junk journals, cards and altered projects. In my spare time you can find me at the beach catching a cool sunset or at the opera. I’m a former classical pianist and still enjoy going to a concert whenever I can.

Let’s give Cris a warm welcome. I am sure you will love seeing what she creates using our kits. So make sure you are subscribed to our blog, social media platforms and Youtube channel.

Vintage Garden District Handmade Cards

Hello crafty friends! I’m excited to share my first project for this month using the June Cards, Tags, & More kit from Tres Jolie! The paper from the kit this month is from Simple Stories Vintage Garden District! The colors on this paper are beautiful and so I decided to create a couple of cards .

 

These cards measure 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 , I used some pink card stock for the base of the cards from the kit. I then cut some of the green paper that has a different pattern from the kit as well to start my layers. I selected the papers from the Simple Stories Vintage Garden District paper pad, on one of the cards I tore the paper and adhered it in two different corners of the base. I then added some white cheese cloth then cutting, distressing the edges with the distress tool then adhering one of the cut outs with the sentiment “Live, Love, Laugh” . I also made a small flower cluster on the bottom of the card using the yellow and white flowers from the kit along with some other small paper flowers in between as well. Of course adding some cheese cloth in between the cluster. Then added some small white pearls to the flowers too! Lastly on this card I added some Liquid pearls to the top right corner.

On the 2nd card I did the same for this base as I used for the 1st one. I did however use the flip side of the green card stock than what I had used for the first one which is a little lighter. I then picked out another paper from the paper pad, distressing the edges with the distress tool and also creating some wrinkles on some areas of the paper. I then cut and adhered one of the cut outs which said ” You are the bestest”. I picked one of the papers from the paper pad which was dark green with a cute butterfly on it, I cut it to make a small banner piece and then adhering some of the white cotton lace and a white flower from one of the other kits.

These cards were very simple to create! I will be creating more once I finish with the other projects . Of course I will be sharing it here with you all! I hope this inspires you to create some any occasion cards for those special moments! This kit is super cute and colorful.  So stay tuned friends for more projects! I’ll be back! Until then you can check out the rest of the design teams great projects!! Also don’t forget to enter the monthly sketch challenge!! See Ya!

Paper Bag Gatefold Mini Album

Hello again crafty friends! I hope you all are staying safe & staying home to help in the efforts to prevent this Covid-19 virus from spreading that way we can all have a wonderful summer!

As I may have mentioned last week, this week I would be creating a project that would have a tutorial so I am excited to share with you this project that I came up with! I love creating memory keeping, in any way I possibly can. I have made a paper bag mini in the past but this time I wanted it to be a little different this time around. I do hope that you will like what I came up with!

Of course I used the Cards, Tags, & More Kit for April which came with the amazingly beautiful papers by Ciao Bella called Sicilia . I love creating with these papers because you have such a wide variety of papers, entire sheets with tags/cutouts and MORE!

This album has so many areas for photos, differerent sizes and there is additional areas, inside the pages where the actual “paper bag” opens, for adding more mats there as well!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For additional photos and the process I did to create this album, check out my short , easy video!

I hope that you enjoyed this project just as much as I enjoyed creating it for you all!! Again, I hope that you all keep staying safe & staying home! WE CAN BEAT THIS!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Sketch Challenge–Scrapbooking Kit

Hey, all! Today I am bringing you the project I made for this month’s sketch challenge, using the April scrapbooking kit!

DSC_0046_FRAMED

As you can see I didn’t make a layout! I was totally obsessed with the clock face and flowers of the sketch, and I really wanted to create something 3D from those elements.

Here is the sketch, and under that, you will find the tutorial video!

I used some Prima Texture Fantasy Paste on my chipboard gears, and the embossing powder from the kit on my clock face, which I also back with some of the patterned paper from the kit.

On the flowers of the chipboard roses from the kit I used a combination of two embossing powders from my stash, and again used the embossing powder from the kit on the stems and leaves.

I also tucked in a few of the die cuts from the pack that came in the kit.

Inspiration can come from anywhere and can take you anywhere! For me, I couldn’t quit focusing on the section around the photo on the sketch, and I let it take me down a non-layout road!

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,
