“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

“Courage” Layout with Rae

Hello! Happy Sunday!

Have you seen our sketch for our monthly challenge? Take a look:

So beautiful! I love all the layers! Here’s my take on the sketch:

This Blue Fern Studios Jane’s Memoirs collection is so beautifully designed that I didn’t feel like it needed any stamping or stenciling, so I kept this design pretty simple. For the large layers, I added some lace from my stash. The smaller layers under the picture are just cut from the papers and the Bits and Bobs ephemera pack. The chipboard circle is a basic cut out from my Cameo machine.  I added some mixed embossing powders (gold, silver, and black) for a distressed metal look. The large lace at the bottom of the circle is from the kit, as well as the Prima Marketing and 49 and Market flowers at the ends of the lace. (The blue flowers on this layout and the keys are from my stash from Prima Marketing.)

To complete the look of the design to match the sketch, I added some chipboard pieces. The Butterfly is from Creative Embellishments, from the kit.  I used gold and white embossing powders to achieve that finish. The rest of the chipboard pieces are from my stash.

These two pieces below are a set  from Blue Fern Studios, and they coordinate with the Jane’s Memoirs collection.  I used the same embossing powders on the scroll piece as I did on the circle.  I double embossed this  flower piece- first with white, and then with a green glaze. I “overused” the heat gun until the white started to bubble up.

Lastly, I added a another piece of chipboard from my stash (Prima Marketing), treating it with speckled egg Distress Oxide ink and then sprinkling on some white and gold embossing powders, and added more flowers to frame the title.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!

“This Beautiful Life” August Sketch Challenge Layout

Hello everyone! This week I am back with my project for this month’s sketch challenge for Tres Jolie kits. I originally had created a different layout using one of the beautiful papers from the August Scrapbook Kit which were from AB Studios Diva collection. But I then decided to create a different layout using two other papers only because one of our other designers from our team Rae used the same papers and created a stunning layout so I decided I would just create a different layout using some of the other beautiful papers. Great minds think a like when you have team members with the same ideas for projects *giggle giggle*.

This layout was fairly easy to create. When I first began crafting I always found making layouts to be intimidating even though the same process is used when creating a handmade card. So when I came across these challenges based on a “sketch”, I was able to catch on fairly quick.  So if you are like I was or if you just need a quick idea for a layout, these sketch challenges and mood board challenges make it that much easier to create something beautiful in the process.

I began by  taking some of the Lindy’s Magicals in Bayou Boogie Gold and adding some water to them, and just go long the edges of the papers with a small brush. I also did the same process along the edges of another of the beautiful papers from the kit that I trimmed a little smaller.

I used  the same mixture of magicals and water to the chipboard pieces that I selected for this layout such as the Dusty Attic Ornate Pendant chipboard pieces and the skeleton keys. I set those aside and started on the layout by adhering the smaller design paper that I had cut and used magicals alongside the edges as well.

Once I that was adhered I began by adhering the chipboard with the magicials onto the page following the sketch provided for this month. I then cut and distressed a couple of tags from the cut out page from the collection. I added some gold ribbon from my stash to them.

I added my photo featuring my 4 children whom are my world! I printed it black/white on Matte Photo Paper and used some chipboard to prop it up a little and then adhering one of the 49 & Market stitched frames from a previous kit onto my photo. I then was able to adhere the flowers and ephemera pieces onto the layout. I adhered a decorative strip also to the bottom of the smaller piece of paper. I made a small flower cluster on the right hand top corner and added a resin piece that came in the kit. I loved the sentiment that came in the ephemera kit “This Beautiful Life” so I decided to add that title to my layout.

 

I do hope that you will enter this sketch challenge this month! You can use any kit or supplies you have to join this challenge. If you do make sure you share with us on the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe. This way you have a chance to win something great from Tres Jolie kits! Stay tuned for more projects coming this month from the rest of the Tres Jolie Design Team Members. I myself will be back next week with another project! So stay tuned!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

“Blessed” Ringed Mini Album

Hello crafty friends!! Today I’m sharing the first project I created using the August Card, Tags, & More kit. This kit came with some beautiful papers, cut outs & my favorite was the gold doilies. The entire kit was beautifully put together and very easy to put together.

 

If you purchased this kit and have never created a ringed mini album, the one thing I can tell you is that this is the easiest kind of mini album that you can create. I think these are fun to make for any level but most definitely for beginners, this is what I would go with.

Here is the process video of how I created mine. I hope you can get an idea of what I did , it honestly is very easy. Everything that Kim put in this kit makes it that easy. Maybe the only thing that took any kind of work was cutting the chipboard she provided to size,  which you can cut yours to any size you would like. Mine measures 8 1/2 X 8 1/2.

I hope that you like what I came up with this month. If you purchased this kit, please don’t forget to share with us your final project on the Facebook page Tres Jolie Kit Club . Also don’t forget to join in this month’s sketch challenge!

I’ll be back next week with my next project. See Ya then….

Hugs,
