Tres Jolie Kit Club–October 2021 Moodboard–Texture ATCs!

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner! I’m here today with my project for this month’s Tres Jolie Kit Club moodboard challenge—some ATCs that were inspired by all the yummy textures found on the moodboard! I used items from the October Cards, Tags, & More Kit, Mixed Media Kit, and lots of goodies from previous kits!

FRAMED-20211012_113258

I have some weaving on a couple of the ATCs, some lines inspired by the lines in the sand, and some sisal inspired by the wool! Check out my video to see how I put everything together and keep scrolling down to check out the moodboard, photos of each ATC, and a product list!

Moodboard-Oct21


Now for some close-ups to show all those textures!

FRAMED-20211012_094319

I didn’t have any plan going into this project, I just knew I wanted to really get some textures on my ATCs! The background of this ATC was created using some “White Sand” Finnabair Texture Paste and a texture tool by Making Memories that I’ve had for Y-E-A-R-S!!

FRAMED-20211012_094336

Here is one of the ATCS that has some weaving for the background and some sisal (in place of wool)! I just used my Lindy’s spray to turn the natural sisal into pink sisal!

FRAMED-20211012_094423

On all the ATCs I added some machine and hand stitching, used a black Stabilo to give some depth to the different layers, and added a Tres Jolie Chipboard button from the Cards, Tags, & More Kit—topped with Finnabair Metallic Flakes—for some shine.

FRAMED-20211012_094355

ATCs don’t have to remain vertical, and I liked a horizontal orientation for this ATC better! This was the ATC I completed in the video, so it had more dry time, which really makes it look like those Art Stones are just sitting on the card!

FRAMED-20211012_094440

I really love this palmistry hand from the Tim Holtz ephemera pack here! The sisal on this ATC was sprayed with the green Lindy’s before being tucked in, and, like all the others I have my stitching, Stabilo, art stones, and button added on.

FRAMED-20211012_094246

Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed these ATCs and they gave you some ideas how to use this month’s moodboard and what you can make using items found in the Cards, Tags, & More and Mixed Media Kits.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Mini Flip Album-October Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner! For my first Tres Jolie Kit Club project of October I’m bringing you a Mini Flip Album I made using mostly only the kit. I have a few staple (white cardstock, glue, ribbon) and reusable (tools) items, but, for the most part, I did stick to the kit.

FRAMED-20210919_173210

With just four (I think only four!) sheets of white cardstock & a bit of ribbon from my stash, plus the Cards, Tags, & More Kit, I created this Mini Flip Album! Check out my video to see how I did it. Plus, under the video you’ll find the measurements for the cardstock and some close-up photos!


Video:


Measurements:

20210911_105441

As you can see, I have x2 on each set, because I made two of each size. The dashed lines are for scoring, and I have the measurement for how far from the left edge I went in for the score line.


Now, for the close-ups:

FRAMED-20210919_173740 FRAMED-20210919_173758

On the inside cover I have a flip-out with a narrow pocket and a pocket with a thumb-slot on the facing page (pages 1-2). The next two pages have a “belly band” (which slipped when I was sewing it, so it’s crooked!) and a pocket (pages 3-4).

FRAMED-20210919_173811 FRAMED-20210919_173826

The next set of pages has a pocket and a “belly-band” (pages 5-6) followed by a page with a “belly-band” under a flip out and a large flip up page (pages 7-8).

FRAMED-20210919_173841 FRAMED-20210919_173859

This next page I left blank for notes, photos, or memorabilia, and a pocket on the next page (pages 9-10). On the final two pages I have “belly-bands” on each of them (pages 11-12).

FRAMED-20210919_173920 FRAMED-20210919_173720

Here are photos of the back and front cover. I left the chipboard natural because I really liked how it went with the muted tones of the papers. Finally, I have a shot of the album opened up, where you can see a couple of those flip-out pages.

FRAMED-20210919_173616

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Shaker “Envelope Gift Mini Album”-September Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my final Cards, Tags, & More Kit project for the Tres Jolie Kit Club this month, I’m bringing you an “Envelope Gift Mini Album” using a Paige Taylor Evans cut file. (Links to PTE’s tutorial & the Silhouette Store ID# in the product list.)

I used the cut file as my base, and decided it needed to become a *shaker* envelope mini album! In my video, you’ll get to see how I worked through that process (which means you’ll get to see how to do it the hard way, LOL!).

FRAMED-20210819_113757

Check out my video! Hopefully it makes sense – I was working out the process as I went along!


Video:


Close-ups with some explanations:

FRAMED-20210819_115254

FRAMED-20210819_115322

For the album (and the inside envelope) I used some Paige Taylor Evans papers from my stash, but used papers from the kit as my ‘accent’ pieces and to make the bow. To make this into a shaker, I grabbed up a 12×12 page protector, inserted the album cut, and started stitching to make the pockets. After all the stitching was completed I trimmed off the excess page protector.

FRAMED-20210819_115422 FRAMED-20210819_115356

Here you can see the inside envelope, I added little magnets just to help keep the flap down. It wasn’t really necessary, I just found it helped keep the flap down for when I folded the album up. You can see I used the Altair Art papers from the kit to make my inside panels, with some doily’s added in that were made using the Dress My Craft Die from the kit.

FRAMED-20210819_115530

When I first decided to add in some stamping from the Bo Bunny stamp set I thought I would have a lot more, but as soon as I added these little edges I thought it was enough! Sometimes less is more!

FRAMED-20210819_115445 FRAMED-20210819_115343

I just had to add in these beautiful Tres Jolie Chipboard leaves from the kit! I found the angle of the leaves made a perfect match up for the flap of the envelope. The addition of the leaves, however, are also the reason I added a button a twine closure, like the one on the right flap, under the outside bow and band closure!

In addition to items from this month’s kit, I used:

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Slimline Cards-September Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bring you some slimline cards I made using the September Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club, plus some items from my stash—most are from previous Tres Jolie Kits! (Tres Jolie Kits are a great way to add to your stash!) Check out my video to see how I did these slimlines!

FRAMED-20210819_113620


Video:


Slimline’s are (were? LOL) originally intended to be created to fit in a standard (No. 10) letter envelope. All of my slimlines this week would easily fit into that size, although in the U.S. if the weight is over 1oz, or if the item is particularly rigid, postage beyond a single stamp may be necessary. If in doubt, go to your local post office and ask! Check out my photos below of each individual card:

FRAMED-20210819_114445

“Congratulations”: Layered doily die cuts over the negative cuts in the background paper, on top of my mixed media layer with clear beads circling the solid center of the doily from the Buttons Galore cube in the kit.

FRAMED-20210819_114527

“Hello!”: Since I had done my mixed media layers all at once, this card was really very quick to finish up. I added my papers, then realized it needed some of the stencil butter on it, spread that on and set if off to the side to dry. Once dry I added my doily with the “Hello!” stamped directly on it and finished it off with three clear sequins.

FRAMED-20210819_114459

“Thinking of You”: This one is super simple assembly! I just added some of the patterned paper on top of my mixed media background and some thin strips that I had left over from my ATC project (Sept. 2nd video); I tucked in a few of the fussy cut flowers under the sentiment and added some sequins!

FRAMED-20210819_114542

“With Love”: Once again I needed to add some of the stencil butter so I just randomly stenciled it on in three random area. I fussy cut the banner & sentiment out after they were embossed, stuck it down, and added some light pink sequins to the areas of stencil butter.

FRAMED-20210819_114512

“You’re Amazing”: Again I needed to add some of the stencil butter since I hadn’t added any to the mixed media background I used, so I tried very carefully to keep it at the center of the doilies. Unfortunately I only thought of the stencil butter after I had attached to doilies to the card, so it was a little difficult! I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment, tucked in some of the fussy cut flowers, and made three groups of the sequins.

FRAMED-20210819_114357

Tres Jolie Kit Club–September 2021 Moodboard-Half Circle Journal

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you a half-circle journal I created using items from both the September Mixed Media Kit and Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club –plus items from my stash. Below you will find some photos, this month’s moodboard, and two videos for this project (Part 1 is preparing and the cover work; Part 2 is assembly and finalizing!)

FRAMED-20210907_112918

I hadn’t originally even thought of doing a journal when I pulled out my circle canvas, but as I sat there staring at the canvas and the new “Circle Swirl” chipboard from Tres Jolie an idea began to take shape! Check out my videos to see how everything came together.


Part 1:

Part 2:


Look at these beautiful colors on the September Moodboard! (Twist: Vintage)

moodboard-sept2021


Now for a few close-ups:

FRAMED-20210907_113151

FRAMED-20210907_113207

I used my Tim Holtz Distress Crayons with a Heidi Swapp stencil. Sometimes adding the Crayon first and lifting through the stencil with a baby wipe; sometimes adding the Crayon through the stencil. I was able to layer my Crayon using some Krylon Workable Fixatif in-between.

FRAMED-20210907_113119

FRAMED-20210907_113248

I used the “Burnished Bronze” Nuvo Embellishment Mousse from the September Mixed Media Kit to add some shine to my spine and the “Circle Swirl” Tres Jolie Chipboard.

FRAMED-20210907_113402

I’ve been hoarding this lace for about three years, and I was finally able to bring myself to using it! I grabbed up my Linen Hinging Tape and just added it in a couple of places—almost like a page made of lace!

Here are a few photos of the inside:

FRAMED-20210907_113314

FRAMED-20210907_113548

I used some green masking paper to line the inside of the cover, and added some subtle Distress Crayon + Lattice Stenciling as well, using the same process as I did on the outside. The pink papers are from the Cards, Tags, & More Kit, I used some Kraft-stock from my stash for the pages and to back the pieces of ephemera.

FRAMED-20210907_113452

FRAMED-20210907_113520

I created a few mini-envelopes to add to my pages, leaving one side unattached so create a little pocket for some notecards I made using the same Kraft-stock as the pages, topped with the swirls from the “Circle Swirl” chipboard.

FRAMED-20210907_113052

Thank-you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed this Half-Circle Journal and it gave you some inspiration and ideas of what you can create using items from this month’s Mixed Media and Cards, Tags, & More Kits.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-September Cards, Tags, & More Kit-ATCs

Hey all! Welcome back to my corner!

Whew! Already September?! Living in the South I am truly looking forward to cooler days getting here!

To get us going this month I have a set of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) I put together using [almost 100% only] of the Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club!

FRAMED-20210819_113524

The only non-kit items (besides tools & adhesives) are the ink I stamped with and some basic white thread. These ATCs went together quick and easy! The lonest process I had was fussy cutting; something that can be done while watching T.V. or a movie. Which makes it easier for me, because otherwise I tend to get bored doing all that cutting! (I have a love/hate relationship with fussy cutting, I love the results, the process—not so much LOL!) Check out my video to see how these ATCs came together!


Video:


FRAMED-20210819_114139

FRAMED-20210819_114156

After I had my bases ready, assembly went quick and easy thanks to my hot glue gun! Hot glue can be so versatile and handy because you can use it to quickly build up and support your embellishments—and as soon as it’s cooled, you’re good to go! No dry time needed!

For some extra texture I added some “nests” of regular thread—the same one I used to stitch the edges—it was a little trick I picked up from Missy Whidden a few years ago (she does it to her layouts quiet often).

I used some Prima Fluid Chalk Ink from my stash to stamp the banners and words, then just fussy cut them out and used some hot glue to help hold the curve and attach them to the ATCs.

FRAMED-20210819_114208 FRAMED-20210819_114224

The only wet glue I used for these ATCs was some heavy gel medium that I randomly brushed on to hold my sequins and beads in place, and that didn’t take long to dry since it wasn’t thick. Plus, it dries clear, so now those sequins and beads look like they are just sitting there!

FRAMED-20210819_114041

ReneaBouquets Upcycle Challenge-August 2021

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Over at Scrapbook.com, ReneaBouquet’s hosted an “Upcycle” Challenge, and I decided my newly broken pair of scissors would be the perfect item to upcycle! I grabbed up a 9×12 canvas board, a bunch of mediums, chipboard alphas, some Finnabair Mould pieces, my ReneaBouquet’s and got going!

wm-20210821_123746

Check out my process video to see how everything came about!


Process Video:


Before I got too carried away, I remembered to take a photo of my broken scissors! I had probably owned these scissors 20 years or so, so they had a good run, but they decided to retire themselves! (How do I know how long I’ve owned them? Because I remember their original purpose! They use to be my fabric scissors!)

wm-20210815_142159


In addition to the Finnabair stencil, I added some “Bee Hive” Beautiful Bits to my background for some added texture.

wm-20210821_123506


This project was rather relaxing because I didn’t have a plan. I just started grabbing items, grabbing mediums, and seeing where everything would take me! It took a few layers of mediums to get the look I had originally envisioned, but I enjoyed the process!

wm-20210821_123457

I don’t know if I’ve ever said it, but I am absolutely IN LOVE with Finnabair’s waxes!! The colors, the finishes, the coverage…EVERYTHING!

You can see how many different Finnabair mould pieces I have on here! And, like her waxes, I love her moulds! I was super excited when she came out with her “dark” line, and I was even more excited when I realized I could get some use out of a few of those “dark” pieces on this canvas!

ReneaBouquet roses and Beautiful Beads were the final touch for this canvas. The beads coordinate with the background colors, and those roses are the perfect contrasting color.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Paperclay & a Tag Booklet-Aug. 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you a two part project using the August 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club – part one: paperclay + moulds + paper; part two: tag booklet!

FRAMED-20210721_121034

As I was sitting and looking at the cut-apart sheet from the kit, I couldn’t help but wonder if I could make the wreaths more dimensional. Then it dawned on me – they looked like the would fit in the Stamperia Mould from the July 2021 Mixed Media Kit! Check out my video to see how I used the papers with some different moulds and how I put the quick tag booklet together!

Now for a few photos. First up, the paperclay pieces I created:

The photo on the left shows two wreaths I created using the July Stamperia Mould and papers from this month’s Cards, Tags, and More Kit. The photo on the right shows all the pieces I made using various moulds from my stash!

Next up, the quick little tag booklet:

The round wreath was just the right size to add to the front of my tag booklet, and with just a few small embellishments it was all done! Look below for a photo series of making the pockets, plus a link to the original post I got the folding idea from! (*Note: Tag Size: 2-3/8”x3-3/8”)

The dashed lines are the folds. The side that is the “back” of the folds is also the side that will show on the front pockets.

Add a thin line of clue for to make the

slide-through pocket.

Fold your corners in and add a little glue to

tack them in place.

Glue lines if the larger side will be your top

piece.

Glue lines if the smaller side will be your top

piece.
