Mini-Album with Scrapbook Kit at Tres Jolie

Hello everyone !

Today, I am presenting a mini-album I made with the Scrapbook Kit.  I had done a mini-album a few years ago with a similar collection that was for boys.  That is why I decided to do the same, but this time, with pictures of my daughter :) (Check out the small walk through at the end).

This is what inspired me :




I took a 12x12 paper from the kit trimmed half of it.  I took a stencil from my stash and some Paste to cover the surface.



Once that was dry, I took the inks included in the kit mixed with water and put some on the paper.  Since it was a little bit pale, I decided to add some darker watercolour.



I cut that peace of paper in half, making 2 3x12 strips.  I folded every 3 inch and used washi tape to put the 2 peaces together doing an accordeon.  I ended up doing another strip because I had too many photos !


On every page, I used peaces of different papers from the kit, I used a square punch and a circle punch.  I cut out some shoes from a paper and also words you can find on the bottom strips of the 12x12 papers.  I used some flowers too.  The title of the album was made with letter dies.

Here is the final result :

Hello !!! I have some cards to share today with you guys, I made them with the gorgeous kit Cards, Tags and more from July. Check out the store with the link at the bottom of this post ;)

Breathe, June Scrapbook Kit for Tres Jolie




Hello everyone ! Coming today with another layout made with June's Scrapbook Kit filled with gorgeous products :





I seem to separate the colours when I do a layout, last time I took all the Purple flowers and this time, I had (almost) only Pink flowers left so I decided to use them all !!

So here is my layout, with a photo of myself from my last cruise in February.  

I originally put clear Gesso on the surface but I ended up not using any mediums so I could have left the paper as is.

I took the White Tres Jolie lace and glued it on the back, in the middle.  I used a sheet of words from a previous kit to put under the photo, I thought it would give a nice texture.  I took some wood pieces from the kit and put them on the top and behind the photo.

The bottom strip of the paper had nice phrases on it so I kept it and cut them to place them on the layout, I think it looks nice : Be who you are, Be brave, Be Bold, Be Happy.

I finished with flowers and a cute little Bird from the Scrapberry's pieces.


Here are some close-ups :








I hope you like this layout, let me know if you have any questions !!

Favorite fairy tale, Scrapbook Kit by Annie




Hello everyone ! Coming today with another layout made with June's Scrapbook Kit filled with gorgeous products :





The Purple flowers inspired me to use a lot of Purple and Green !!  I decided to pull out from my stash some sprays I hadn't used in a very long time ! Since I almost always work with my watercolors, I kind of let go of some of my other mediums...

So here is my layout, with a beautiful photo of my daughter.   First things first, a coat of clear Gesso on the background, let it dry and than use the gorgeous stencil from the Cards, Tags and more kit (must still be available in the shop).  Then I took my Purple sprays and also a Green spray. As you can see, I put a lot !  

Next thing I did was use the beautiful cut outs, postcards and stamps from the kit and placed them in a cascade from the top left to the right bottom.  

I took the white Tres Jolie lace and teared it a little bit.  I added flowers on which I sprayed ink :) I just love doing that !  I added some of the words phrases and inspiration card from the previous Cards, Tags and more kit.


Here are some close-ups :

Journal Spread with Cards, Tags and more kit



Hello everyone ! I am back today with another page from my journal, made with the beautiful June Kit : Cards, Tags and more...







Once again I took a inspiration card from the May Kit and went from there.  I chose the photos that for me represented family, friends, sisters etc.

I started with a coat of clear Gesso on both sides and let dry.  Then I took the gorgeous stencil included in the kit with the Nuvo paste wow !!! I just love the result !  After everything was dry I started to play with the Stamps from the kit, all over the pages with the Black Distress Ink.  I continued with some Fuchsia Watercolor here and there, sprayed some water, which diluted the Black ink a little, I think it looks great because it gave like a dark Purple color.

I used some of the sticky words from the May Kit as journaling, and with a watercolour pen, I draw lines around the words and the photos.  I did a wash with water  and a brush to create an antique look.







I hope you like what I did :)
