Creating a layout with 6×6 paper

Hello crafty friends! Jeanne back this week sharing how I created this Christmas layout using the November 2020 Card, Tags, & More Kit. This is the very first time creating a layout using 6×6 paper. I have been wanting to make one but I hadn’t done one yet but since I love these beautiful papers from the paper pad this month which is 49 & Market Noel Vintage Artistry Collection, I thought heck why not right! So here it is!

This was pretty quick to complete this layout so I want to share how quick it came together. I try to create quick , not too complicated, tutorials for those of you who are beginners. I know I learned a lot from tutorials that weren’t too complicated. I really try to so hopefully this helps out.

I began by choosing the pattern paper from the 6×6 paper pad and using my Prima Marketing Distress Tool, I distressed all of the edges of the papers. I then adhered them onto a 12×12 sheet of chipboard using 1in. non brand double sided tape. I have seen on some layouts created from 6×6 papers that they have cut along the edges to size it onto the base but I didn’t have to do that with mine, so not sure whether maybe it depends on the papers not sure. I then just went over the layout using homemade clear gesso , I was out of Prima Marketing Gesso that I usually use but found a recipe online. It worked so I probably will keep using it! Here is the tutorial I followed!

I then used a snowflake stencil along with Deco Art Crackle Paint which I absolutely love, its a favorite of mine! Before drying it with my heat tool, I applied some glitter I had left from a previous Tres Jolie Kit. I then adhered some white lace from my stash.

Then just added a photo of my grandson which was taken Christmas 2017, he was so small and his Elf had put tissue all around the tree. So its a great memory! I added the photo adhered on some scrap paper from the paper pad then on some foam tape for added dimension. I also added a beautiful floral piece that is from Blue Fern Studios, which was also a product from last years Christmas Tres Jolie Kit.

I found some adorable ephemera letters “NOEL” and an adorable car which is from the Crate Paper Merry Days collection. I loved that the colors of these matched the stitched frame that I added on my photo and a sticker that says “It’s December” on the frame. I love these stitched frames which I know are also from a previous kit as well from Tres Jolie. So as you can see you are able to use products you might have left from other kits as well. I then finished it off by adding some splatters using some Aqua Pigment in Pearl from Brutus Monroe, which you can add water to it or use it as is which I did in this case.

Well friends, I better end this post before I start rambling on more than I already have lol. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. It was a strange one this year but hopefully all goes back to normal soon. Please keep safe! Till next time!

XOXO,

Jeanne

Noel Vintage Artistry Christmas Cards

Hello everyone!! I’m back this week to share with you a couple of Christmas cards that I created with the November Cards, Tags, & More from Tres Jolie Kits. I absolutely am a HUGE fan of all things 49 & Market. This month’s kit was wonderfully put together! So shout out to Kim Heard, owner of Tres Jolie Kits, for this magnificent kit!

 

These cards measure 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 , I used the White Card Stock that came in the kit, I also used the gold and silver glitter card stock. I cut to size the selected 6 x 6 sheets of the 49 & Market Noel Vintage Artistry Collection.

I began with adhering the cut glitter card stock onto the white card stock using the ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever. I used my Prima Marketing Distress Tool on all of the edges of the cut design paper , leaving a little bit of the glitter card stock peeking around the edges. I then adhered the distressed design paper, I also distressed some of the cut outs from the cut out sheet! I used non brand pop dots to adhere those cut outs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the cover, I added some fibers from Brutus Monroe for added texture then added a small flower Poinsettia cluster using the paper poinsettia’s from a previous Tres Jolie kit from last year. Lastly added some pearl stamens as well. On the inside I added some American Crafts Textured Card stock and then added some smooth white card stock for the writing area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These cards were fun to create. I love this entire kit and will be using the rest of it to create more cards, possibly a layout using the 6 X 6 sheets left from this kit. I hope that you liked this week’s project. I will be creating something for next weeks post however that isn’t Christmas themed. I will be making something for the mood board story challenge for this month for  Tres Jolie. You can join up and post your entry over at the Facebook group Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe. I will be back next week with another fun project so stay tuned!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Mood (Color Story) Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the November 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. They are kinda dark and moody.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the November color story challenge.

Here is the color story:

How about some close-ups:

I covered the sheet in clear gesso to prep it for the stenciling I did. Here you can see where I used just the leftover modeling paste on the stencil to create this light design. The stenciling is heavier in other places.

You can also see the chipboard that I used a textured embossing powder on. There are also a few layers under the photo from papers in the kit. I did a bit of distressing on the paper edges.

More layers, die cuts and chipboard (grass is from my stash) and flowers from the kit. The title was cut from the kit sayings.

“Untitled” Layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing an untitled vintage layout created with the October 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Blue Fern Studios  have a great vintage feel to them. I’m really loving with this kit.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

 

How about some close-ups:

I created several layers of different sizes using 3 different sheets of paper. I ripped the edges slightly. The chipboard frame from the kit was covered in clear gesso (this helps the embossing ink adhere), then painted with the mist from the mixed media kit. I love the way it turned out.

Here you can see a better look at the chipboard. I used the same technique on the chipboard butterfly (except I used 2 colors), then added some stickles (from the mixed media kit) for shimmer. I added some trim (from my stash) as layers under my photo. I love how they make the photo pop. You can see a bit of the stenciling I did on the bottom layer of paper.

Here is one of the floral clusters (all flowers are from the kit), the tickets were fussy cut from the ephemera that come in the kit. The chipboard leaves (from my stash) got more of the same treatment as the other chipboard. It really shines under the flowers.

“I was quiet….” October Sketch Challenge Layout

Hello crafty friends! This week I come to you with my sketch challenge layout for October 2020. I really love this beautiful paper line and I knew it would go perfect with a photo of my beautiful daughter Destinee who is my only daughter and the oldest of my children. This paper collection from Blue Fern Studios Jane’s Memoris  which is in the Scrapbook Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

This project was pretty quick coming together because the paper I used is so beautifully detailed that I didn’t want to cover to take anything away from it. I had thought of adding some stenciling but I honestly backed away last minute. Here is some photos of the steps I took to create this!

I began by picking out which paper from the collection I would use from this Blue Fern Studios Jane’s Memoirs collection. I also like using 12×12 sheet of chipboard to back my layout this way it keeps sturdy even if I was to spray inks, water, stenciling, stamping , etc. I added some non brand double sided tape onto the chipboard, I then used Tim Holtz Distress Stain Ground Espresso along the edges of the paper I chose. I then took off the paper off of the double sided tape using my Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick . Once I added my paper, I went over it using my We R Memory Keepers Large Bone Folder.

I then set my layout aside and picked out my photo and frame for my layout. I absolutely love the chipboard frames from Creative Embellishments that was included in this month’s Scrapbook Kit!! I used Ranger Embossing Ink Dauber on the chipboard then added some Lindy’s Stamp gang Embossing Powder Silence Is Golden, I believe it was from a past Tres Jolie Kit. I then let it cool and adhered my photo onto the frame using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever which has a great hold. I then used some scrap chipboard or card board on the back of my photo for dimension and used the same glue to adhere it to the paper. I then began adding the flowers that came in the kit as well as flowers from past kits as well. I used the same glue to adhere everything on this project. The flowers are beautiful 49 & Market flowers , Country Bloom (Punch) & Enchanted Petals (Parchment).

la

I also used some the lace from the Scrapbook Kit as well on my layout with a small flower cluster. For that super cute quote that is on my layout which reads ” I was quiet…..but I was not blind-Jane Austen” I cut it from the Bits-N-Bobs Pack also from the kit. I then used the same Distress Stain that I inked the edge of my paper on this small quote I cut. I then used some dimensional dots to adhere it onto my layout. I lastly added a few pearls from Frank Garcia Memory Hardware Pearls IV Pink Passion around my layout.

I finished with this layout pretty quick as I mentioned before that this paper collection has so much detail in it that you don’t need to add to much embellishing to it. So it came together pretty quick! I hope that you will join up in the challenge! You have till the end of the month to do so! Thanks so much for taking time to read my post! I hope you feel inspired to great beautiful things! xoxo

Hugs,

Jeanne

A tri-fold card, a template and a winner

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful shabby chic/floral kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards, birthdays, weddings or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a love card and used a template to create the base.

This is a 4×6 card.  I used a 6 x 12 sheet of cardstock  to create the base.

Here is the template to download:

Card template

How about some close-ups:

I used the template for the base of the card. Then I decided on my papers for all my sections. I inked all the edges before gluing them down.

I left the inside flap bare, this way I could add whatever sentiment I wanted later. This gives you a better look of how the card folds. I love the mix of patterns on the papers. The chipboard rose is from the kit. I used some diamond stickles from the mixed media kit to make it sparkle.

Here is another view of the back side of the card. You can add little pop-up elements all over this card. They make fun surprises.

 

Now for a winner.

Did you enter our September sketch challenge? What are you waiting for? Thanks to all who did join in. Remember, we have a new challenge each month.
