Tres Jolie Kit Club–Christmas Explosion Box-December 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my first Tres Jolie Kit Club project of December I have my “kit only” (+glues & basic tools!) project – a festive Christmas Explosion box! This month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit comes with a DCWV Explosion Box all ready for you to decorate using the fabulous Graphic 45 “Christmas Time” papers.

FRAMED-20211117_164446

This project is rather quick and easy using the kit! Check out my video to see how I put it together!


Video:


Easy, right? Now for a few photos and some reminder info from the video!

FRAMED-20211117_165446

After I decided which paper I wanted to use on the lid, I held the lid up to a light

and placed the paper over it so I could line up the position of the larger clock. Then I carefully set it down on my desk so I could trace the lid onto the the paper!


FRAMED-20211117_165520

The inside of the box was just about as quick and easy as the lid – just more cutting! My pockets were cut 3-1/8” (height) x 3-5/8” (width) then scored 1/4” in from each side. I then used a 2-1/2” circle punch at the tops.

The first layer flaps had the papers cut 3-1/8” x 3-1/8”, the second layer of flaps were cut 3” x 2-7/8”, and I just carefully worked my way around the bottom piece trimming as I tested placement!


FRAMED-20211117_165619

The papers for the outer panels of the box were cut 3-1/8” x 3-1/8”, I added some strips of paper for the edge of the lid, then I topped the box off with a chipboard frame and the large flower!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Autumn Tealights-November 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my final project of November for Tres Jolie Kit Club, I am bringing you some fabulous home décor—Tealight Lanterns—using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit and even a bit of the lavender paste from the Mixed Media Kit!

FRAMED-20211024_153345

With some dies and the beautiful “Hello Pink Autumn” papers from Prima from the kit, I put this autumn [flameless] tealight décor piece together. Check out my video to see how I did it!


Video:


FRAMED-20211024_154549 FRAMED-20211024_153512

After I cut my lanterns out and assembled them, I went back and carefully unfolded the bottoms and cut off the flaps so I could just pick them up and set them over the tealights. I also have some “Magic Potion” Effect Paste on the windows to add a little sparkle!

FRAMED-20211024_154604 FRAMED-20211024_154618

My stands are made from some cardboard tubes—the kind that is in the center of toilet paper & paper towel rolls—and since I used the same paper for the stands and the doily’s, I wanted to break it up a little, so I watered down some of the “Lavender” paste from this month’s Mixed Media Kit and just swiped it on around the tops of the stands before I added the doily’s.

FRAMED-20211024_154537 FRAMED-20211024_154630

I used my “Tattered Pinecone” Die on more paper and just rolled them up, then added some “Magic Potion” to them as well to keep the sparkle going!

After I had everything put together and it was dry, I added some sisal to the bottom for some more texture.


FRAMED-20211024_154655

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Autumn Cards-November 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you a couple of quick and simple autumn cards using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. I used a couple of pre-made card bases and envelopes from Recollection’s (stash) and just added my own touch using the papers, ephemera, and chipboard from this month’s kit, as well as some other items from my stash.

FRAMED-20211024_121120

Need some quick cards? Check out my video to see how I put these together!


Video:


Simple, yes? Not all projects need hours of work to come out fabulous! And really, the Prima papers and Tres Jolie chipboard does most of the work here!


FRAMED-20211030_094414

My card bases are 6.5” x 5”, so I cut out 6.25” x 4.75” rectangles. Then I measured in 1/2” all the way around and, using my craft knife, I cut out my center rectangle! Two layers out of one rectangle!

I also just grabbed up a leaf stencil and some fluid chalk inks to add some decoration and color to the card bases and envelopes.


FRAMED-20211030_094108

FRAMED-20211030_094049

I have had that flocking in my stash for – a very long time! I would have to say over 10 years! I just never knew what to do with it. I finally decided it was time to pull it out and see if I could make it work! I used some fluid chalk ink and sticky embossing powder to start, but the flocking didn’t really stick down heavily—it came out more like fuzz—so I added some collage medium and added more flocking. I do like the “unevenness” of the flocking though! Some places are have a thinner layer which makes it look lighter, and some areas are nice and thick, which makes a darker area!


FRAMED-20211030_094302

Here is a close-up to really show the flocking. I added some clear beads as raindrops to this umbrella and just a few clear sequins on the pear card.


FRAMED-20211030_094010

Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed these cards and they gave you some ideas of what you can make using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Autumn Journals-November 2021 Moodboard

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you two Autumn Journals I made using the 49 & Market papers and embellishments from this month’s scrapbooking kit for my moodboard inspired project for the Tres Jolie Kit Club. Autumn themes are one of my favorite themes! I love the colors and I love the crisp Autumn days.

FRAMED-20211109_105438

This project isn’t a step-by-step process, because that would be quite a lot of videos, and rather repetitive because there are tons of junk journal tutorials out, and I was 100% inspired by Kathleen Sundby . What I did is make video segments to go over what I was using, what my next steps were going to be, and finally the end result.


Video:


Nov21-Moodboard

Just look at this beautiful moodboard! The colors of Autumn are just gorgeous!


Here are a few photos of the journals, but the video is much more detailed! I would have had to take over 80 photos to get every page of both journals! Even though I used mostly the fabulous 49 & Market products from this month’s scrapbooking kit (with my junk journal stash!), I also have a couple of items from the Cards, Tags, & More Kit and one of the rust effect pastes from the Mixed Media Kit included!

FRAMED-20211109_105513

The junk journal with the green closure is slightly smaller of the two. I used a card base as my journal cover, then covered it with some 49 & Market cardstock.

FRAMED-20211109_105532

I have layers of bits of lace and fabric on my closures and even added in some pops of blue with some 4mm silk ribbon.

FRAMED-20211109_105613

A sample page from the center of the book. I have some printables in the journals (left page) that I was gifted. Almost every page has some decoration stitched on like you see on the right page above—using ephemera, fabrics, and/or laces.

FRAMED-20211109_105636

Look how thick this beauty is! So many places to write on and pockets to slip mementos in!


FRAMED-20211109_105725

This journal is a little larger—I used envelopes sandwiched between cardstock and paper to make this cover!

FRAMED-20211109_105715

The closure for this journal is also made up of many layers. I used my silk ribbon flowers and knots to hold the sari silk in place to showcase the gem!

FRAMED-20211109_105806

As seen on the chipboard mushroom, from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit, I used the Burnt Sienna from the texture pastes found in this month’s Mixed Media in the journals! I found a way to use something from each kit in this month’s moodboard project!

FRAMED-20211109_105754

As you can see, this journal is just as think and filled with writing surfaces and pockets as the “smaller” journal.


FRAMED-20211109_105900

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Tags-November 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you my first project—some Autumn Tags–for November using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. This month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit is filled with Tres Jolie Chipboard and Prima’s “Hello Pink Autumn,” a wonderful combination to work with!

FRAMED-20211024_120939

The tags are from Tres Jolie, and make a wonderful, sturdy base to build on! Check out my video to see how I put this project together!


Video:


Below you will find two photos of each tag—one of the tag as a whole, and one close-up of the cluster.

FRAMED-20211030_093601 FRAMED-20211030_093621

Each tag has some base similarities – I used some Lindy’s Gang embossing powder on the chipboard shapes and along the edges of the chipboard tags, I used different paper patterns to “break up” the background of the tag, and I added some plain, dark brown sewing machine thread to give a bit of extra texture.

FRAMED-20211030_093656 FRAMED-20211030_093713

Each tag also only has one “set” of matching flowers from the flower pack. With all the other patterns and pieces on the tags I wanted the flowers to stand out and not just become more of the background.

FRAMED-20211030_093800 FRAMED-20211030_093810

These tags went together rather quickly with the help of my hot glue gun! I just piled on some glue and added my pieces! Hot glue is also great for helping to add shape to flat pieces! After shaping, I just fill the curves with some hot glue to keep my curves in place.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Anything Book–October 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my final Tres Jolie Kit Club project of October, I’m bringing you an “Anything Book.” I call it an anything book because you could easily use it as a mini-album, mini art journal, mini notebook, etc. Personally, I really wanted a mini art journal with pockets and flip-outs.

FRAMED-20210919_173350

My inspiration for this project came from Pinkstrawberryz “No Binding Easy Mini Album.” It was just one of those “You might like” recommendations that randomly popped up on YouTube, so I decided to have a look! As soon as I watched the video I had ideas brewing! Check out my video to see how I put my Anything Book together. (Below the video you will find photos of the inside and the measurements for my pages.)


Video:


Here is a look at some of the pages I started preparing:

FRAMED-20211003_110402 FRAMED-20211003_110424

After my book was together I used clear and white gessoes to prepare the pages. With my gesso dry, I was then able to start laying down mediums to prepare working backgrounds. I just grabbed up various paints and started laying them down! To make the book cover, I grabbed up some burlap trim, cut it to length, and stitched it in place during assembly.

FRAMED-20211003_110443 FRAMED-20211003_110455

Some areas have acrylic paint and some have watercolors. I started drawing on a couple of the pages—flowers in some places, and this face above. I also grabbed a few pens and outlined the flowers from the paper pack.

FRAMED-20211003_110513 FRAMED-20211003_110527

I didn’t always use a brush with my paints, some times I just used a palette knife to scrape it on! I also grabbed up some of my Dina Wakely Scribble Sticks and added some…well…scribbles! I have a short flip-though of my mini art journal (as far as it had been “finished” at the time of filming!) over on my Instagram post for this project.


Measurements (in order of page in book):

Tres Jolie Kit Club–“Envelope Card” & Box-October 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week for the Tres Jolie Kit Club I am bringing you an “Envelope Card” using a Lori Whitlock cut file and a box to package it in—a me cut file (image & a link to my personal Dropbox below)! Lori Whitlock’s original “Envelope Card” is made to fold over, but I wanted to add some of the 49 & Market flowers so I added in a bottom and created the box to hold it in.

FRAMED-20210919_173312

I used the embossing folder on the back, kit papers and flowers, and some of the buttons for accent flower centers. Check out my video to see how I put it all together!


Video:


A JPEG of my box creation and the links to my personal Dropbox: Silhouette Studio (studio3) File; SVG File; JPEG (All files for personal use only). I added a lid with and without a window cut out.

5and1halfx4and1half-ish-Box


I used the embossing folder from the kit on the back panel of the envelope–after I had glued in the liner piece and adding some embossing ink to the folder. When it came out of my Sizzix I added my embossing powder and heated it up!

FRAMED-20210919_174102 FRAMED-20210919_174123

I used gold embossing powder on a few of the Tres Jolie Chipboard buttons and added a few spots in the centers of the other flowers.

FRAMED-20210919_165114

FRAMED-20210919_174143

FRAMED-20210919_174203

Instead of using the sentiment that came with the Lori Whitlock file I trimmed down one from the paper pack to fit and added it on.

I used items from the October Cards, Tags, & More Kit, Mixed Media Kit, and lots of goodies from previous kits!

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!

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

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!!

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!

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.

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!

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.
