Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit-Samples!-ATCs, Memorydex, and a Card & Envelope

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I’m bringing you my third (and final) project this month using the June Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club; a sampler of smaller projects—ATCs, Memorydex®, and a notecard & envelope.

20210507_190148-FRAMED

With my three projects this month, I used up every little bit of the June Cards, Tags, & More Kit, and had a fabulously fun time doing it! Check out my video below to see how my samples came together!


Video:


First up, my ATCs:

20210507_185257-FRAMED

I used Tim Holtz’s “Crackling Campfire” and “Salvaged Patina” for the color scheme of my ATCs. The bases are Prima ATCs, dyed some white tulle with Distress Oxide Stain, and I used the clockfaces, butterflies, phrases, and flowers (my flowers were different!) from the kit to top them.

Here are some close-ups of each ATC:

Next, my Memorydex cards:

20210507_185542-FRAMED

Since these cards are meant to go onto a Memorydex®, I kept them a bit flatter than the ATCs. Three of the card’s color scheme are Tim Holtz’s “Blueprint Sketch” & “Mustard Seed” and three are the same as the ATCs, “Salvaged Patina” & “Crackling Campfire.” I grabbed up some sisal for four of the cards and actually just used my wax seals to hold it in place! I used my last butterfly and gears from the kit and added some cut out pieces from the Stamperia paper pack. (Note: At the time I didn’t have the June Mixed Media Kit yet, so I used some Nuvo Gilding Flakes from my stash. As a reminder, the June Mixed Media Kit comes with a jar of Finnabair’s “Steampunk” Metallic Flakes!)

Close-ups of the individual Memorydex® cards:

20210507_185735-FRAMED


And finally, my notecard and envelope:

20210507_185849-FRAMED

For my envelope I was 100% inspired by Nathifa (Pronounced: na-tee-fa) from Juicy Christians Studios (in my video I only refer to her Instagram handle because I hadn’t heard her say her name or read the pronunciation yet, and I didn’t want to pronounce it wrong!). I am completely obsessed with watching her make envelopes! When I got down to having only pieces from the cut apart sheet left, I figured I’d try my hand at making an envelope.

I used some Kraft paper from my stash, turned a stencil into a stamp, cut out Every. Last. Piece. of the cut apart sheet, and layered things up—using my black Stabilo to create my shadows! I wrote my name on the back flap, to show where a return address would go, and used a silver marker to create the recipient’s address box. Now I may have finally found a use for all the cut apart sheets I’ve collected over the years! (Fussy cutting isn’t my most favorite activity!)

Here are close-up of the front and back of the envelope:

Art Journal-Hero & Paint-June MTW Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I have an Art Journal spread I created for the June More Than Words Challenge “Hero & Paint.”

WM-20210622_201758

I wasn’t sure if I’d come up with something this month for the MTW Challenge, I wasn’t feeling very layout-ish, and I wasn’t able to really narrow down a personal hero. One day I just pulled out my DWM Journal and grabbed a few brighter paints. Then I sat there staring! I think things finally came together when I got a “picture” in my mind of some stenciling. I didn’t have anything like what I was picturing, so I cut one out of some heavy cardstock.


Video:


June 2021 Main


I suppose, if you wanted to really get down to the nitty-gritty, I think I had problems thinking of a hero because I tend to lean to a “I’ll do it myself” attitude. I’m not saying I won’t let people do things for me, I just find doing it myself faster! LOL!


Some close-ups of the spread:

WM-20210622_201853

The silver on the background is from sheets of Prima Run-On Foils. I used my homemade stencil with some Finnabair “Gold Dust” Jewel Effect Paste, and then freehanded some paint highlights!

WM-20210622_201840 WM-20210622_201903 WM-20210622_201944

I used some DWM “Eggplant” & “Lemon” that I had from the October 2020 Tres Jolie Kit Club Mixed Media Kit, and some Vicki Boutin “Juicy Pear.”

WM-20210622_201949

All of the papers have been in my “scraps” pile for ages, and none of them had the border with the manufacturer on them anymore, so I couldn’t even begin to guess where they came from now!

WM-20210622_201910 WM-20210622_201935

I just tore a bit of corrugated cardboard from a box, coated it in some DWM Gesso I’ve had since the April 2019 Tres Jolie Mixed Media Kit (I had an open container way back then already, and with black gesso, I’ve learned a little bit goes a long way!); I then layered my stamped papers, punched circles, and label on top of the cardboard.

WM-20210622_202023

I hope you enjoyed this project. I love getting my Art Journal out because I gives me a chance to do a project without always having to plan ahead or prepare too much! With just a little guideline, “Hero & Paint” I was able to do a project and relax!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2021 Moodboard-Scrapbooking & Mixed Media Kits Combo

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I’m bringing you my moodboard inspired project using both the June Mixed Media Kit and Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club!

FRAMED-20210610_101240

I love steampunk! It is in my top three list of themes I could play with all day long! Check out my video to see how I put this together.

Now a few close-ups:

FRAMED-20210610_101311

On my metal pieces I used some clear gesso from my stash and added some color using the Starburst Squirts—Hockey Puck Black & Polite People Purple—from this month’s Mixed Media Kit. (Note: I forgot to mention the Polite People Purple in my video, Sorry!!)

On the wooden gear I adhered some of the metallic flakes and then aged them with more of the Starburst Squirts and clear gesso!

FRAMED-20210610_101330 FRAMED-20210610_101349

These black chipboard arrows are from this month’s Scrapbooking Kit, and I absolutely love them! I love them so much I ordered two more sets to keep on hand (Tres Jolie Chipboard).

FRAMED-20210610_101359

First I used some foam squares to raise the car up a bit, then to add more depth I used the Maple Syrup Bronze Starburst Squirt to create a shadow effect behind the car.

FRAMED-0210610_101251

I used a few of the transfers from the Mixed Media Kit, added some color with more of the Starburst Squirts, and layered them with the car. As a final touch, I grabbed up a few of the flowers and one of the butterflies from the Scrapbooking Kit and added them to my piece!

FRAMED-20210610_101322

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do using this month’s kits and the moodboard!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit-Art Journal

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

This week I’m bringing you an art journal I created for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using some of the papers and chipboard gears from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit along with papers, some embellishments, and mediums from my stash.

20210504_100134-FRAMED

I absolutely loved the Sir Vagabond line from Stamperia, and I knew I’d have to make Sir Vagabond himself part of a cover as soon as I saw the paper pack! Check out my video to see how I put this art journal together.


Video:


20210504_100222-FRAMED 20210504_100254-FRAMED

For my pages I used some homemade tea dyed papers and some printed papers I’ve had for who knows how long! I also splattered the pages with some “Salvaged Patina” & “Aged Mahogany” Distress Oxide Sprays.

20210504_100242-FRAMED 20210504_100312-FRAMED

My art journal isn’t very think, so I only have two signatures in it. However, each signature has one sheet of the Stamperia paper included! The outer sheet for the first signature, and the center for the second signature.

20210504_100358-FRAMED

20210504_100345-FRAMED

20210504_100333-FRAMED

On the front and back covers I used some heavy gel with two stencils for texture, added my Tres Jolie chipboard gears that I painted with “Steampunk Copper” Prima paint, and some roman numeral before adding the “Salvaged Patina” Distress Paint & some splatters. I backed Sir Vagabond with some chipboard and gave him a “new” moustache before adding him to the cover.

20210504_100201-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with items found in this month’s Cards, Tags, and More Kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit-G45 ATC Tag Album

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner! Today I’m bringing you my first project for the Tres Jolie Kit Club using the June Cards, Tags, & More Kit!

This project is a “kit only” project, using the Graphic 45 ATC Tag Album, Stamperia Papers, and one of the resin clocks from this month’s kit.

20210504_095922-FRAMED


Video:


This project is rather easy-peasy! For all the pages and the cover, I just cut the paper to size and glued it down. I created a custom-fit piece for the spine, using my Silhouette Cameo to cut the bracket shape in the piece of paper I was using.


Here are the measurements I used and the JPEG or, if you choose, the SVG for the tag and spine.

(Below is a link to my Dropbox for a SVG.)

Measurements I used for the Stamperia paper.

A few close-ups:

20210504_095912-FRAMED

I really wanted to keep the cover simple so the album could be carried around easy while traveling, so I made sure my cut-out pieces were glued down good and I used some Liquitex Super Heavy Gel to make sure that resin clock was attached nicely!

20210504_100043-FRAMED

I cut the lined sheet of paper from the Stamperia pack in half and turned it into a couple of fold-out pages for taking notes.

20210504_100027-FRAMED

For some of my pages I did some paper piecing to create the background!

20210504_100013-FRAMED

I had originally thought I might cover the tags with the Stamperia paper as well, but then I decided to leave them blank for notes and/or photos.

20210504_100109-FRAMED

I picked one of the phrases from the cut apart sheet to put in the bracket. You could also make a custom label describing what the theme of your album is!

20210504_095944-FRAMED

This Graphic 45 ATC-Tag Album is so adorable and just the right size to make a little memory book; paired with the Sir Vagabond Papers from Stamperia, and you have a handy place to record a little vacay!

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie, I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some inspiration to create your own little album!

Your eyes are a reflection of your spirit-MTW May 2021 Mini

Hey, all! Today I have the tag I made for the More Than Words May 2021 Mini Challenge, “Eyes.” As you can see in the photos, lighting can change how this project looks!

The word “eyes” has to appear on the project, so I went looking for quotes that could inspire me. It just so happened that I had my (new) Finnabair Moulds sitting out at the same time. By my bead drawer. And a plan started to formulate!

20210525_083356-wm 20210525_083647-wm

Process video:


May Mini EYES


You will see how lighting and flash vs no-flash change the appearance of the mediums, especially with the shine from the paints!

20210525_083707-wm

I started with a Julie Nutting tag. Not for the pattern, but because I like the size and the weight of it.

20210525_083601-wm

I used a Heidi Swapp stencil, some random filigree, and Ingvild Bolme “Nail Heads” to build my background.

20210525_083418-wm

I added some paper straws, a metal butterfly, and a key under my skull.

20210525_083616-wm

Another “Nail Head” in one eye and a rose in the other.

20210525_083548-wm 20210525_083627-wm

Another comparison of how lighting (or a flash) can change the appearance.

20210525_083720-wm

I had so much fun with this project! I love getting out my paints and pastes and getting messy! I hope you enjoyed this tag as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

Stay Crafty, Friends

Faces of You-May 2021 More Than Words Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

Today I am bringing you a (redone) layout. I originally did “Faces of You” 10+ years ago, and of all the layouts I’ve done, this is one I remembered! (Seriously, when looking for the layout I came across too many layouts I have no recollection of!) Anyhow, when I saw that this month’s More Than Words Challenge was “Faces & Kraft,” I knew I’d (finally) redo “Faces of You.” (I have grand plans to redo most of my layouts from when I first started scrapbooking.)

20210523_111810-wm


Process video:


May2021MTWMain


Here is my original layout. I thought I was really getting fancy by adding stitching & ribbon! And, my goodness, there is almost some pattern going on with the light paper and the circles on that ribbon; I even overlapped the photos some! I remember when I started I was, more or less, afraid of colors and patterns! It was all too new. I didn’t add mediums; I didn’t even own mediums beyond a few to Tim Holtz’s Distress Ink pads, in varying shades of brown! A lot has changed since my early days.

20210516_131835-wm


And now, I have layers, embellishments of all kinds, mediums, and colors galore! Instead of being “afraid” of using “too much” I try to use as much as I can so I can work through my stash!

20210523_135201-wm


20210523_111821-wm

So many layers! I have my photos on foam, and the torn papers lifted with foam so the frame wouldn’t leave a weird lump.

20210523_111855-wm

I discovered long ago that I really LOVE cutting frames apart and having them look bigger than they actually are. It turns out, scissors are my friend, and I don’t have to be nervous about altering items!

20210523_111951-wm

I just used some white texture paste with my Fabrika Decoru stencil and used some Distress Oxide sprays as my paint!

20210523_111909-wm

I went through my stash, pulled out a lot of different choices, and eventually worked out what I wanted to add to this layout!

Thank you for joining me here, I hope you enjoyed this remake of one of my original layouts and it inspires you to be more daring with colors and mediums or to redo something!

Stay Crafty, Friends

Fairy House-MMP April Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

I am bringing you a little project I put together, inspired by the Mixed Media Place’s April Challenge. I don’t often work with pinks, but I really loved the mood board this month, and decided it was a good time to pull out my pink paints!

20210519_120715-WM 20210519_120431-WM

Video:


moodboard-mmp-4-2021

Aren’t the colors for the April Challenge absolutely wonderful? I couldn’t help but want to make something pink!


Now, how about a few close-ups?

20210519_120450-WM 20210519_120611-WM

The fairy’s house is actually a repurposed bed riser! My youngest moved from his dorm to an apartment and didn’t need them anymore, so he gave them to me! My family has learned I will take anything and repurpose it into a craft project!

20210519_120504-WM 20210519_120519-WM

My little door is from Creative Embellishments, coated in Vintage Gold wax with some ReneaBouquet’s glitter glass as the window. I used a variety of random pieces for my foliage: Christmas berries and leaves from JoAnn’s that I’ve had a couple of years, and some Styrofoam “shapers” with some wire that I thought would look interesting!

20210519_120528-WM 20210519_120554-WM 20210519_120540-WM

The figurines I found a couple of years ago at Dollar Tree and picked them up to have when the right project presented itself!

I hope you enjoyed this project! I had fun putting it all together, even if I did make a massive mess!

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my final project for the month of April, I have a layout that will (most likely) be getting mounted in a shadow box. I couldn’t resist turning this photo of my husband & our granddaughter into a star filled project! This project is full of dreamy blues for the Creative Embellishments April 2021 Challenge – Monochrome & Washi (I have Tim Holtz Tissue Tape along the edges!).

I used a sheet of Fabrika Decoru Golden Mini Drops Mysterious Garden Sky 12×12 paper as my base for my starry sky. Then added some stenciled stars and some “Unicorn’s Hair” Sparks splatters for even more of a dreamy, starry sky.

Under and around the photo I have resin pieces from the Finnabair Stars & Moons Mould, chipboard and flair/buttons from Creative Embellishments, white gardenias from ASC Supplies, dusty blue and white roses from ReneaBouquets, and some glass glitter from Darice. All working with a variety of paints from Finnabair, some Old White Matte Wax, and Nuvo gold gilding flakes.
