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

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!

May Sketch Challenge Layout By Jeanne

Hello friends!! Today I am sharing my Sketch Challenge for this month! I love creating from the ideas that Kim puts together, they are so much fun to do!

For my project I started by adding some Gold pigment ink onto the edges of the 12X12 paper that I used, which was from one of my favorite collections from Prima Marketing  “Salvage District” . I also stamped some roses using the same ink around my page.  Once it dried I backed up my layout onto a 12×12 chipboard sheet. I then added some Lindy’s Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise Flat Spray Lindy’s Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise Spray

I used a paint brush to apply this color since I didn’t want it too bright. I then added other papers from the collection where my photo mat will be. I added some Prima Marketing flowers & leaves, I also added some of Wooden embellishments from the Salvage District collection as well as some flat back pearls. Lastly adding some black flourish die cuts I had left from another project .

I hope that you will join in to this challenge! There is still time and make sure you join and post to the Tres Jolie Kit Club Page on Facebook ! All links are below!

See ya next time!!

Any Occasion Handmade Card

Hello again crafty friends! Today I’m sharing this quick simple handmade card for any occasion using the April Cards, Tags, & More Kit! The papers from this kit are the very beautiful Sicilia from Ciao Bella. I absolutely love the papers from Ciao Bella because even if you are just starting out as a crafter, you can easily use one of their many cut outs , in a variety of sizes and shapes, to create a quick card. I did something like this here. Sometimes a simple card says a lot!

This card measures 5×7, the base for the card is American Crafts Card stock, a very pale yellow which I love! I used one of the cut outs from the A4 Paper Pad. I added some white ribbon criss cross before adhering the cut out! I used a corner die with some dark blue card stock to apply on two of the corners. On top of those I added some medallion type round cut out which I inked using the Prima Marketing Chalk Ink in Worn Jeans around all of the design papers including the sentiment! Lastly I added some clear Ranger stickles to the flowers of this card and then added a light blue flower from 49&Market. This was a a very simple card and the entire A4 paper pad has so many cut outs like I mentioned before.

I hope that you liked this simple card I created! I’m not use to creating “simple” cards, but I thought it would be nice because I know there are many crafter just starting out and might be worried they might not be able to create something beautiful. I myself was so intimidated to create cards for a long time but then got the hang of it.

Also don’t forget you still have time to join in the monthly sketch challenge! Good Luck!!

 

See you next time my friends!!

My Parents Vintage Love Layout

Hello crafty friends!! I hope that everyone is keeping themselves as safe as they possibly can and most importantly staying home even though it’s a hard thing to do but the way I see things is that we should comply this way we get back to our “NORMAL” lives! That’s at least my goal! Anyhow aside from this I am back this week to share with you all my layout for this month’s sketch challenge for Tres Jolie kits! I absolutely loved creating this layout! This layout is very special to me because the photo that I used is of my parents in front of our family home & my mother was about 8 months pregnant with me here!

My mom was the age that I currently am now when she got pregnant with me, I was that menopause “oops” baby haha! But all turned out good, I had a wonderful childhood with my family and I have already lost both my parents but I’m so grateful for all of the photos and memories that I am left with. This is one of the main reasons that I began my crafting journey! As I am sure that is a reason most of you do this as well!

So for this month’s sketch challenge I used the April Scrapbook Kit, I also used the large chipboard clock from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More kit. I also used some trims and from my stash. A couple of stamps and distress inks from my stash as well. It wasn’t hard to create at all, I just took a little time creating it because of it’s meaning to me.

                                   

I hope that you enjoyed what I created this month for the Tres Jolie Sketch Challenge and join in! I hope that you also find inspiration in my layout as well as the other designers from Tres Jolie and of course find inspiration in each other! Especially during these times when we can all come together more!

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!
