Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….




I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.


The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.


I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.


The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.


I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.


The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.


Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s





This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.


I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.


In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.


I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.


The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.


The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.

Challenge Monday (on Wednesday)

Happy Wednesday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday (but on Wednesday). This month is a Mood Board challenge.

Here is the Mood Board:

This mood board can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the Mood board:

I used a photo I found on Pinterest (there were no photo credits).  I just loved the shabby chicness of this. I was inspired by the upper right and bottom left photos in the mood board.

How about some close ups?

I wanted to go with the softness and colors of the the photos I chose from the mood board. I did some stenciling on the background and used some Glimmer mist in Timeless Lilac.

I cut up the rose border chipboard piece and heat embossed it with Lindy’s pop rock purple embossing powder. I also cut some doilies with dies from my stash. I tucked a few in my flower cluster.

I used the tickets from the kit, plus I cut some of the seed packets from the paper to layer under my photo.  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 Pop Rock Purple embossing powder and Timeless Lilac Glimmer mist are  great matches for this kit. Seedless Preserves Distress Ink is also a good match to use. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the Mood Board. Don’t forget to load your entries in the January challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

Lavender Frost layout with Ginny

Hello All!

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you have all have a fabulous, happy, healthy, peaceful and joyous 2019!

It’s time for a layout created with the January Kit from Tres Jolie Kits, this kit is a beauty this month!
We have beautiful papers from 49 & Market and Prima Marketing and some gorgeous embellishments to compliment them.
I have also had the pleasure of creating with the Cards Tags and More Kit this month too… again filled with Prima goodies. More on that later in the month.

Today I have decided to share with you a layout created with the Prima Marketing Lavender Frost papers.



I did a little stenciling with texture paste in the background.
There are loads of layers in this layout, small oblongs cut from lots of the Prima papers in this collection.


The flowers from this collection are stunning. I grouped them together along with some butterflies fussy cut from the papers.

I added some of the tickets in the clusters too.

All the flowers are packaged with a piece of printed vellum paper… I loved this and couldn’t waste it so I have used this in my paper layers.

I added touches of Nuvo Crystal drops to the layout from a previous kit.
