Carpe Diem by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone ! Here is a new layout with September Scrapbook Kit.

Yes ! another beach layout !

For this background I used a little bit of Clear Gesso before I put Modeling Paste with a stencil from my stash.  I used the stamp all around the layout. I used the spray from the kit on the chipboard also included in the kit.  I cut it in half so i could use it on top and bottom of my photo.  I used flowers and embellishments from the kit and some from my stash too, I wanted Blue on this layout to go with the paper, the chipboard and the photo.

 

 

 

 

thanks for looking !

Family layout by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am here today to share a layout made with beautiful September Scrapbook Kit :

This was a pretty simple layout to make, no mediums, just paper and embellishments !  I used the Rice paper and teared it a bit and adhered it on the background paper.  I cut out a quote from one of the paper and created a cascade with flowers. Added embellishments and that was it ! I love the result !

Every Story (Mood Board Challenge)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board with a twist challenge.

So what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board, with a twist. What is the twist you might ask? Well, we decided to use a specific color palette to go along with the images we chose. So you have more to be inspired by.

Doesn’t this get your mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by the pattern the peeling paint makes, plus some of the colors.  I had lots of fun creating this layout.

This is a photo of dh and I out for dinner on Mother’s Day.

How about some close-ups.

I did some random stamping in the background. Plus I added a bit of the mist that comes in the kit.

 

I embossed the chipboard with some Lindy’s embossing powder. The butterfly is from my stash.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.

Place your entries in the September 2019 Challenge folder on Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe Facebook page. All are welcome to enter, however we’d love to see what you do with our kits.

This challenge ends on September 30th, 2018 at 11:59 pm CST.

Card and Tag Kit Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our Cards, Tags, and More kit for December. This month the kit features a 6 x 6 paper pad from the Mintay Christmas Stories line, coordinating red and green cardstock, two packages of Creative Embellishments sentiments, and from Kaisercraft, three lovely mini flower packs and some white pearls embellishments. Take a look at the picture below:

And, here’s what the DT came up with using the kit this month:

Kim made a beautiful card and wine holder set:

Rae made a couple of cards, cutting out that darling little deer for the focal points of the cards.

And Rae also made this fun tag set, focusing on the red and blue color combo with those papers.

The card/tag kit has plenty of paper for all kinds of small projects. Even after you use up all of the embellishments from the kit, you will have paper left over to use with your own embellishments! It’s a great deal!

And, we still have a few kits available, so be sure to snag one HERE, if you haven’t already!

Merry Christmas Shadow Box with Rae

Hello!

Today I am sharing the last project I made with the December kit. After making my sketch layout and my stocking bunting, I was down to scraps of paper and bits and pieces from the kit! So, I had to come up with something small, and kind of basic. Here it is:

This little shadow box is made with scraps of the Maja Design paper, and the amazing Creative Embellishments holly frame.

I used one of the boxes from the Tim Holtz vignette box set and one of his metal stands, both from my stash.

I covered the box with scraps of the red Maja paper that I cut to size, distressed, and inked with brown ink on the edges.

Then I cut the red border away from the picture of the Santa, so it would fit in the box, and what do you know? That border was the PERFECT size to the front of the box, so I inked that and glued it on as well. Once all the paper was glued to the outside of the box, I added some white gold wax paste to the edges.

I also added some of wax paste to the metal base that I already white washed with gesso.

After I distressed and inked the Santa picture, I glued inside the box.

I used Stampendous aged green embossing powder on the Creative Embellishments holly frame, then added some of the white Kaisercraft pearls to the small circles. TIP: I always use a heat tool on my pearls after I have place them on my project to heat up the glue- if you press the pearls down when the glue is warm, it will really stick! There’s need to add extra glue or Glossy Accents to each of the pearls if you do this!

Lastly, I added a title cut from one of the bottom of the Maja papers, and added a red poinsettia from my stash.

Peace, Love, and Joy Tags with Rae

Hello there!

It’s time to start making tags, if that’s something you do for Christmas! 🙂 Today I am sharing a few tags I made with the December Cards, Tags, and More kit.

My inspiration for creating this tag trio was the Creative Embellishments chipboard set that came in the kit: Peace Love and Joy titles. I kept the design mostly the same for all three tags: I hand cut some of the red cardstock from the kit to make tag shapes, and then cut some of the Mintay  Christmas Stories papers slightly smaller for layers for the base of the tags. I distressed the edges of both layers, then inked the edges of the patterned paper layers.

I also cut out doilies (Prima) from the Mintay papers- one for each tag.

I also cut out some leafy swirls using a Cheery Lynne die. I cut those and added them to peek out from under the Kaisercraft flowers.

Under each of the pieces of chipboard, I added three little cut outs from the Mintay paper and fanned them to give a nice base for the chipboard titles.

I treated the Creative chipboard pieces with some white and gold embossing powders.

Merry Christmas Deer Cards with Rae

Hello! Today I am sharing a couple of cards I have made with the December Card, Tags, and More kit, featuring Mintay Christmas Stories papers.

I created two  6X6 cards using a similar design.

Here they are:

I love that cute little deer on the papers, so I cut two of them out for these cards. This paper is perfect for fussy cutting! I also cut out some of the red poinsettias as well to add to the floral part of the cards.

I used a 6 X 6 piece of paper for the back layer of the cards, then cut two sheets of the 6 X 6 paper down to 5 3/4 X 5 3/4. Then I ripped the paper that was going on the bottom diagonally to create a “half and half” design. I distressed all of the edges, then glued these layers together, leaving room under the top layer to tuck in some lace (from my stash).

Next, I added some stenciling (snow “dot” pattern) with some glittery paste, and added the Merry Christmas titles.

On this card, I used the red paper and a die to cut the title, and added some of the Kaisercraft pearls to accent the title.

For this card, I added the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the kit. I embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing powder from my stash.

I cut out a fancy snowflake with an old Memory Box dies, and put it in the middle of the card, then added a larger flower from my stash, added the deer to the middle and added some of the small Kaisercraft roses from the kit.

After that, I tucked in the poinsettias that I fussy cut, then added more of the little Kaisercraft roses.

Here’s a couple of closeups from both cards showing the floral cluster/line.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Keep checking back all month to see what the rest of the design team has made with all of the kits!

More Havana Cards with Rae

Happy Saturday, friends!

Today I’m sharing more cards that I made using the card kit featuring the Prima Marketing Havana collection. I LOVE the colors!

So I made two cards very similar in the way that I designed them. This first one is a 6×6 square, so it’s rather large.

I started with cutting my layers- the Kaisercraft cardstock is slightly darker, completely complimentary to the greens in the Havana papers. The white layers are die cuts- I used the Kaisercraft border die from the kit, and a floral die from my stash.

I added faux stitching to all of the paper layers with a sewing wheel, paper piercer and fine tip black marker, which you can see clearer in the closeup below.

I added some pretty crystals from my stash, as well as some black and white splatters  of India ink to complete the look. The chalk inks I used were Tsukinedo Dew Drop in Ocean Oasis, and the pink is Old Rose from Prima Marketing.

 

Here’s another card I made using the same design concepts, but I added some die cuts from dies in my stash.

 

Thanks for taking the time to stop by the Tres Jolie blog today! We still have card kits available to purchase HERE. You can purchase kits from this month, and subscribe for next month!
