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

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Sketch Challenge

Hey, all!

Today I’m bringing you the project I did for this month’s sketch challenge (sketch image below the video)! I love A.B. Studio papers, and I almost always think they should be turned into some kind of notebook or journal! Maybe it’s because they are so all so awesome I just want to see them all at once! And with Tres Jolie Kits, I get to see a lot of A.B. Studio!
DSC_0001-FRAMED

I didn’t entirely think up this project on my own, I knew I wanted to do a journal, but I didn’t necessarily want to do a full junk journal. The A.B. Studio Instagram solved my problem when I saw an accordion fold mini album on a post (using the same paper line, none the less)!

Check out my video below!



Original Sketch Mirrored Sketch
sketch Sketch-Mirrored

I used the mirrored sketch as my journal cover, and included the tag and clock elements! Sketches don’t always have to be for layouts!

I’ve included images of the inside of my journal if you’d like to see it closer!

Here’s a little something that I didn’t think of until after the video was done:

Front of paperclips Back of paperclips

I just grabbed up a couple of jumbo paperclips, some of the same burlap I used in the journal, a couple of the typewriter tiles from the kit, and glued them together with some E6000.

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this month’s scrapbooking kit! Don’t forget to join our sketch challenge over in the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Hello

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club blog! Can you believe it’s already June?

In case you missed the reveal post, this month marks the 2-year anniversary for the Tres Jolie Kit Club!! Huge shout out to Kim for putting fabulous kits together for the past two years!!

Now, on to my first project of the month!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

This kit gave me two of my favorite products, something metal, and something that has a crackle effect! And if having a metal envelope wasn’t enough, the Metallic Gilding Polish is a dream! Check out my video to see how I put this fabulous décor piece together!


Now, have a look at these close-ups!

DSC_0025-FRAMED

Look how smooth that Metallic Gilding Polish is! You’d never know it wasn’t the original color of the “hello” and the leaves!

DSC_0002-FRAMED

I’m a hoarder, especially when it comes to flowers! And these Prima flowers from previous Tres Jolie Kits were no exception! Kim is always generous with the flowers she adds to kits, which works perfect for those of us who may use them more sparingly, and those who don’t! You’ll always have enough!

DSC_0009-FRAMED

I love the teal, black, and grey of the flowers! They match the patina of the envelope, and compliment the pinks of the Lindy’s Gang Magical Powder & the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

Check out those cracks! Aren’t they fabulous?!?! As my final touch, I found a package of Prima Say It In Crystals in my stash that have gems that were the perfect match!

I hope you enjoyed this project & that it gave you some ideas of what to do with your kit this month!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-May 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Summer Vase

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! Today I’m bringing you a summer vase using an upcycled jar, mediums from the mixed media kit, and papers from April’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!

DSC_0001-FRAMED-SQUARE

I absolutely loved the Ciao Bella papers that came in April’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit! I loved, loved, loved the lemons with the dark blue! And it worked out that the Little Birdie wax in this month’s Mixed Media Kit was a perfect complement! Check out my video to see this summer vase come together!


Video:


DSC_0004-FRAMED DSC_0008-FRAMED

After I coated the jar with the Little Birdie “Golden Glaze,” wrapped the papers around the jar, and adhered the image to the lid, I used Tim Holtz’s “Crazing” Medium (from my stash) as my topcoat. I then rubbed the Little Birdie wax all over, giving the “Golden Glaze” paint a blue hue and really bringing out the “cracks” from the “Crazing”!

DSC_0003-FRAMED

The lid and lace are a permanent part of the piece! I used E6000 & some gel medium to hold it where I wanted, at the angle I wanted!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

For the most part, I will try to upcycle anything! Who knows how old this jar was, but it has found a new purpose!

DSC_0001--FRAMED-RECTANGLE

Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! Today I’m bringing you a quick little layout I created for this month’s sketch challenge!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

I had a very craft-filled May, and by the time I got to this project I had one whole sheet of the beautiful Craft o’Clock paper left! There was a time when the thought of using such a “busy” pattern as a background would have terrified me, but I have learned sometimes less is more, so I kept everything else simple! (Sketch below the video)

Check out my video for the process!

May 2020 Sketch

DSC_0002-FRAMED

Behind the smaller cluster in the upper-left corner and behind the photo layers I added a touch of stenciling using the “Golden Glaze” paint (mixed with some 13@rts MAGIC! Powder) and a homemade texture paste that contains some of the “Caribbean Teal” paint, both [paints] from this month’s mixed media kit. Also, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the teal flowers on this layout were from the Prima “vine” that came in the kit! Don’t be afraid to cut things apart if needed to make them work better for your purpose!

DSC_0007-FRAMED

I didn’t want to just plant the photo directly on the background, so I used some torn pieces of papers from the kit, some tissue paper, and the square, white frame from the chipboard (cut apart!) behind the photo! Then I added one of the chipboard tabs!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

The beautiful black and gold butterflies were the final touch needed for this layout! They provide just the right amount of accent!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Butterfly Reels

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! Today I am bringing you my “Butterfly Reels” project where I used three of the VHS reels, the mediums, and the package of Prima Mechanicals, along with items from my stash, to build this steampunk piece!

DSC_0008-FRAMED

I am very happy with how this piece came out! I love mixing the patina and rust effect with the non-aged look of the reels and flowers! Check out the video to see the whole process!


Video:


DSC_0030-FRAMED

In the above photo you can see the ripples created by the paint pour!

DSC_0027-FRAMED

I love Prima’s Rust Effect Paste, and I’m glad I had some on-hand to use with the Mechanicals from this month’s kit! Plus, those butterflies were what I had left from the March Mixed Media Kit!

DSC_0029-FRAMED

I knew parts of my chipboard would overhang, so to give it some extra stability I used “Prima Sculpture Medium” before adding the Rust Effect Paste!

DSC_0031-FRAMED

The longest parts of this project were all the drying times, so I would just set it aside while the glues and mediums dried so I could work on other projects! My final touch was adding some Teal Glass Beads from ReneaBouquets on top of each stack of Mechanicals!


May 2020 Mixed Media Kit

Mixed Media Kit

In addition to items from this months kit (*From previous Tres Jolie Kits), I used:

Prima Rust Effect Paste Set (Brown, Gold, and Red Rust), All chipboard received from a swap with Toni, *Prima Finnabair Mechanicals “Scrapyard Butterflies,” ReneaBouquets Glass Beautiful Beads “Teal”,” Liquitex Pouring Medium, Dina Wakley Cell Creator, Prima Sculpture Medium, Liquitex Matte Super Heavy Gel, JudiKins Diamond Glaze, E6000

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Spring Plank

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! Today I am bringing you a spring-themed plank I put together using items from my stash and the April Mixed Media Kit!

DSC_0014_FRAMED

I just used a bit of old board for my background, added some gesso, then started layering! Check out the video for the whole process!


Video:


DSC_0015_FRAMED

For the background color I used the two Magical Shakers from the kit like watercolors. On the chipboard diamonds and window I sprinkled them on then spritzed them with some water.

DSC_0016_FRAMED

I mixed the glass glitter from the kit with some gel medium then just spread it on randomly to add some shine to the piece.

DSC_0019_FRAMED

With the background done, it was just a matter of layering the other parts of my piece!

DSC_0018_FRAMED

My final addition was a few of the pearls from the kit. I put them on 3” (76mm) pins and them stuck them in where I wanted them.


April Mixed Media Kit

Mixed Media kit

In addition to items from the kit (*From previous Tres Jolie Kits), I used:

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!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You have till April 30th @ 11:59am CST to join in! Add your photo to the April 2020 Challenge Folder in the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe on Facebook.

I will be back next week with my final project of April using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit! Please stay safe everyone! ~Hugs~ Jeanne
