Cuteness, Sweet and Adorable layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. I am back sharing another layout created with the January 2020 scrapbook kit. This kit is just to die for. It’s so shabby chic.

Here is another look at the kit:

Here is the layout I created with it:

How about some close-ups:

I also used a combo of flowers, both are from the kit. I have lots of bits and bobs from my leftover tray I keep on my desk. That’s a piece of a die cut under the floral cluster. The title words and resin shutter are also from my stash. Everything got a rub of wax paste from a past kit.

I tore the top layer of paper to expose the sheet beneath. I wanted to play off of both textures. I added some stamping and stenciling to add more dimension.

I used some leftover lace under my photo. I also used my metallic pastel accents (from a previous kit) to add some extra color. You can also see more of the stamping. Topped off with some art stones and I was done.

Recycled Tag

You may have realized by now that I like to use every little scrap of my kits.  This month I had not only the Mixed Media kit but also the scrapbook kit so I had a lot to work with.

When I got low on my papers I began to look at the pretty packaging that the Blue Fern embellishments came in and it replicated the patterns on the paper in a smaller print.  I thought to myself that it would make the perfect tag so I got to work!

I cut the tag shape out and punched a hole at the top

I then used the stencil from the mixed media kit and some molding paste to create some great texture on my newly created tag.

Once the new texture was created and dried I sprayed on some Lindy’s Moon Shadow Mist from the Mixed Media kit.

Next I added more texture by applying some paper packing scraps at the bottom with more molding paste and I tucked in one of the little resin birds from the Scrapbook kit.

I continued to layer more texture with the mesh tape from the mixed media kit as well.

While the molding paste was wet I sprinkled on some coarse silver glitter and allowed it all to dry well.  Once it was all dry I added a title cutout with a pop dot and rubbed the bird with some metallic gold.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you are inspired to look at your packaging in a different light!!

Cutting up and making cards

Hey y’all!!  So this year I just have not gotten it together to get the pretty photo Christmas cards printed and sent out.  I got the photo taken at Thanksgiving and had great intentions but it just didn’t happen.  Thanks goodness I had the beautiful December Tres Jolie Scrapbook kit packed FULL of Blue Fern papers and embellishments that were perfect to whip up some cards that I could just slip those photos in!

I know, you are wondering why I used that big ‘ol beautiful scrapbook kit to make a bunch of cards.  But I’m not much of a rule follower with it comes to things like that and I like to do the unexpected.  The truth is, you can do so much more with such an awesome kit…any crafty project you have going on that month really!  It just worked out so well for me this month!  I made cards and decorations and even added to my gift wrap!  But we will get to all that.   Today, lets look a little closer to these cards.

I used the chipboard ornaments and sprinkled them with embossing powder to give them a metallic shimmer.  I then added a scrap of silk as a ribbon to the ornament.

I also cut lots of pieces of the papers out and layered them with pop dots to create dimension and depth.  And as usual I inked all the edges to give it a finished and distressed look.

This is the second half of the set.

Created in the same way, with lots of fussy cut Blue Fern papers applied with pop dots and inked up, showing lots of layers.

So there you have it.  I had a great time just cutting up all the papers and layering them to create some great cards!  I hope this inspires you to look at your kits differently and see what you can create!

Altered Wooden Box with Cards, Tags & Address Book/Journal

Hello crafty friends!!! This month I’m back with a super adorable project that I created using the Tres Jolie Scrapbook Kit  .  This project is for this months Mood Board Challenge. I decided to alter a wooden box. This box measures 8×8. I do plan to add more cards, envelopes, & tags. I just wanted to create just a few to show something and not an empty box haha!!

 

IMG_3219

 

      

 

In this project I was inspired by Frank Garcia a designer for Prima Marketing. He did a similar design for a mini album parcel that I subscribe to. I just added all of the flowers and other small elements.  I took the wooden box that came with this kit, note these weren’t the papers for that parcel.

     

I really enjoyed altering this box. I made some 3×3 cards with envelopes , tags that I had in my stash, I added some papers from the collection to them, they came with some twine so I added that to the box, I also altered a small hardcover notepad. I couldn’t find a smaller notepad at the time and of course after I altered this one I came across smaller ones that I had in my hoard. No worries this one came out nice. This can be used as an address book or just a journal.

IMG_2251

I do hope that you were inspired to create something like this!! If you would like to see a tutorial on this please check out my blog @ Jeannie In A Bottle Blog  These sorts of projects make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, keepsakes, etc. I do hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family as I will do with mine, although my daughter and her family will be spending it with her other family but my sons will be here and I’m not too upset cuz I get to have her for Christmas . Talk to you all soon ~Hugs~ Jeanne

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In My Heart

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the November scrapbook kit. The new papers from Prima Marketing are so pretty. the colors are amazing. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. I know I say this almost every month, but this is becoming one of my favorite kits.

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

I have used this photo a time or two before. It’s one of my favorites of my mom. It just goes so perfectly with these papers.

 I embossed chipboard rose leaves using 2 different embossing powders. One is from a past kit.  I used the ink in the kit to go around my title.

How about some close-ups:

Here you can see a close up of the embossed rose leaves with the 2 different colors.

More chipboard pieces that were embossed.

Here you can see where I tor and layered patterned papers and doilies.
