Shine: A Layout using the Tres Jolie July Scrapbook Kit

Happy Saturday, crafty people!

I'm sharing my first project made with the July Tres Jolie scrapbooking kit, featuring the lovely Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper collection. For this layout I used the June Sketchabilities sketch.

I started out by cutting up the "wood" panel background paper in strips along wood lines, then I used a paper distress and added some brown distress ink along the edges for added dimension.

For my layers, I added the doilies from the kit, some paper layers, and added the Prima Marketing resin frame to the picture. I topped of the layers with butterflies I cut from one of the papers, the cream and purple 49 and Market flowers, as well as some small coordinating flowers from my stash. I also added the title "Shine" from my stash as well, which is a Dusty Attic piece that treated by adding some wax paste.
I added some stenciling of bricks to peek out from under the design. I used white crackle paste, then lightly used a foam applicator with brown distress ink over the crackles after the paste was dry.

I treated the Dusty Attic chipboard scroll by covering it with a thick layer of the Nuvo drops from the kit. While wet, I added a combination of gold and black embossing powder while the Nuvo drops will till wet, then used a heat tool to dry it- I let it bubble up to create this distressed old metal look.
I added the leaves under the flower cluster before gluing on the chipboard to the paper to create more dimension.

For this bottom cluster I added the smaller Prima resin frame, a tiny purple flower from my stash, and a Lemoncraft flair button to repeat some of the features from the main cluster on the layout.

Remember Layout for Tres Jolie Kit Club

Happy Saturday!
Today I am sharing the last layout I made with the June kit.  And, I challenged myself to not use my paper distresser, which I rarely do. But, sometimes I really enjoy the look of sharp edges, and I thought the different patterns of the Prima Marketing and 13 Arts papers would look nice just inked with black chalk ink. I love the muted colors of these papers so much and I thought it would be nice to add some contrast the contrast of adding black, paired with a black and white photo. Here's the result:

Here's a closeup of the edges of the papers that I heavily added chalk ink to. And, you can see the beautiful black lace from the kit peeking out between some of the layers.

Under my photo I added a few different layers of items: I did a bunch of fussy cutting of the Prima Marketing paper that had the pink roses, and I also did the same thing on some of the 13 Arts papers with flowers as well. The pink Prima Marketing flowers from the kit match papers perfectly!

I did add a couple of things from my stash- some bluish-green flowers to coordinate with the papers, and also some chipboard that is a quatrefoil that I added some black and gold embossing powders to.

For balance of the design, I added an embellishment cluster at the bottom left of the layout. I added some resin feathers, pink roses, Creative Embellishments berry chipboard, all from the kit, and I added more of the blue flowers and chipboard from my stash.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Precious Layout for Tres Jolie Kit Club

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a layout I made using the lovely June scrapbooking kit. I have a whole collection of layout that I do using vintage images just for fun, and this is my latest one. I found this vintage image on Pinterest, which is my go-to source for vintage photos.
I kept this layout pretty simple- I didn't do any stamping or stenciling, which is kind of unusual for me, but I LOVE the 13 Arts and Prima Marketing papers so much, I just wanted to let the beauty of shine through.
I started by ripping the blue 13 Arts paper, and adding it to the Prima Marketing blue rose paper. I distressed the paper edges with a paper distresser, and some grey ink.

I added some more layers using a die cut doily, and two tags that I cut free hand from the Prima Marketing paper. I added some thin twine to the tags from my stash. I cut some of the 13 Arts dark grey wood paper and added some lace to the photo mat. I like the balance it brings between the dark photo and paper and how it flows with the lighter papers of the background.

In this closeup you can see that I added the appliques to my flower clusters. I also added the Creative Embellishments berry chipboard- I inked the chipboard black, and then added some fine embossing powder in gold, intentionally leaving some parts without the powder to give the chipboard a distressed look.

Here's a closer look at one of my flower/embellishment clusters where you can also see the Prima Marketing resin feathers. The blue flower is from my stash, but the pink ones, along with the leaves are from kit, from Little Birdie.

Sketch Layout for Tres Jolie Kit Club

Hello crafty friends!
Yesterday was our reveal our first kit- it's so pretty! Today, I'm sharing a layout I made based on the sketch for our monthly challenge. Kim, owner of Tres Jolie kits designed this sketch, filled with elegant and romantic details. Check it out:
And here's my take on it:

The dark blue 13 Arts paper that I used for the background reminded me of the picture I used, so I started my layout knowing I was going to incorporate these dark elements into the sketch page. I really wanted to draw attention to the photo so I kept the dark paper and dark elements to a minimum, but gave the page a nice flow of the mixture of tones.
The lace peeking out from under the main paper layer is from the kit, but I used a couple of different blue mist sprays (Lindy's Stamp Gang  Time Travel Teal, and Tibetan Poppy Teal) from my stash to give it the teal color. I did this because as I was building my design, incorporating a doily (from my stash) with the lace was a bit too unbalanced with all of the white.
Here's a closeup that shows how the lace is two-tone with the different mists. And, you can see the embossing of the Creative Embellishments chipboard frame. I used WOW! Embossing Powder in Verdigris, which has an amazing two-toned color with the green and gold.
I did quite a bit of fussy cutting of the 13 Arts paper that I used for layers peeking from under the doily and flowers. There are some amazing leaves, flowers and feathers. I also cut a piece of the Prima paper that had some printed elements that I used under the picture.

I cut up the Prima beaded vine and used it in different sections of the layout, including the bottom left of the page to follow the sketch. I added blue pearls from my stash to complete the look.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Be sure to join us for our monthly challenge using this sketch. You can find more details about the challenge on Facebook in our Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe online community.
