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!

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.

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

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

Thank you for joining us here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed these ATCs and they gave you some ideas of what can be done with the items found in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!

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!

wm-20210821_123440

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!

wm-20210821_123447

wm-20210821_123542

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.

Thank you for joining me in my little corner! I hope you enjoyed today’s project!

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!


Video:


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

FRAMED-20210721_121457

FRAMED-20210721_121320

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:

FRAMED-20210721_120919

FRAMED-20210721_121001

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”)

20210720_111627 20210720_111654
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

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Magnets-August 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you some ideas for magnets using pieces of this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club, along with items from my stash.

FRAMED-20210717_181045

A couple of the magnets I made using the Finnabair “Elisian Clockworks” Mould, and the rest were made from some unfinished wood drawer/door knobs. Check out my video to see how I created my magnet set!


Video:


Now for some individual photos:

FRAMED-20210717_181105

FRAMED-20210717_181230

These two magnets were created using the Elisian Clocks mould and some Amazing Cast Resin. I filled the mould about half way and after that half hardened, I added my magnets and finished filling the mould with more resin.

After coating my pieces with gesso, paint, and paste, I added my embellishment clusters, then a bit of gold wax for some accent.

FRAMED-20210717_181116

FRAMED-20210717_181149

FRAMED-20210717_181222

FRAMED-20210717_181139

FRAMED-20210717_181159

On my drawer/door knobs I added some smaller mould pieces using paper clay, followed the same painting, embellishment, wax process as the resin magnets, but then also added some Nuvo Crystal Drops for a bit more texture on the “plain” edges.

FRAMED-20210717_181256

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie! I hope you enjoyed these magnets and they gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-August 2021 Moodboard Challenge-Shabby Little Notebook

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you my project inspired by this month’s moodboard—a shabby little notebook using the August Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club!

I cut the papers in half, used a tab punch, my sewing machine, some lace, and my Mini Cinch to put this little notebook together in couple of hours* (*maybe that long, I got interrupted a few times so I lost track of how long it actually took! The sewing took the longest amount of time though!)

FRAMED-20210806_235947

Check out my video to see how it all came together.

August 2021 Tres Jolie Moodboard:

moodboard-Aug2021

I love this porch, which made me think of a sunroom where you can get some quiet time to rest and reflect—and maybe jot down a thought or two in a shabby little notebook! The Cards, Tags, & More Kit was already the perfect color combination for this moodboard, I just added the lace and put my pages together.


Here are a few close-ups showing the cover and a couple of the pages:

FRAMED-20210807_000014

Here is a close-up of my cover cluster. I didn’t want to make it too bulky, I just wanted to add some dimension to the floral print on the patterned paper I used.

FRAMED-20210807_000124

FRAMED-20210807_000148

On the pages I added tabs, I just stitched the tab into place, on the pages that have lace, I stitched around the whole page. Since I was going to a shabby feel, I didn’t do everything to match! I have straight and zig zag stitching, my laces are different lengths—some longer than that page, some shorter.

FRAMED-20210807_000210

As you can see, some of the pages may not work for journaling because of the pattern, but they would be perfect for adding photos or other memorabilia to!


20210807_000247

Don’t have a Cinch or other binding machine? Some split rings or book rings will work to hold your pages together too!


FRAMED-20210807_000059

August 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit:

In addition to items from this month’s kit (*from previous Tres Jolie Kits), I used:

*All lace; We R Memory Keepers: Tab Punch, Mini Cinch, & Cinch Wire (0.625”) White; Scotch ATG; light weight chipboard; white thread; sewing machine; wire trimmers & pliers (for the cinch wire); hot glue/hot glue gun

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Tags-August 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit (+a few staple products!)

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner! I hope your August is starting out well and you’ve had some craft-tastic time’s so far!

I like to make my first project of the month a “kit only” project as much as possible, and this one is no different! I created these tags using a couple of basic (staple) items from my stash and the rest is all from the August Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club!

FRAMED-20210717_181424

I used some corrugated cardboard for one of my tags, and some chipboard for the other. You can use a variety of items from the home to make your tag bases, such as cereal boxes and Styrofoam trays. (Just remember, Styrofoam isn’t going to be able to handle heat!) Check out my video to see how I put these tags together!


Video:


Now for a few close-ups:

FRAMED-20210717_181531

FRAMED-20210717_181606

Here you can see those beautiful pieces of Tres Jolie Chipboard that came in the kit this month! I just grabbed up my Ranger Gold Embossing Powder and Simon Says Stamp Embossing Ink to give them a little shine! I think a nice gold embossing powder is a good staple item to have in your stash, metallics go with all colors and styles and are great at adding a little extra “pop”! You can also see my white gesso splatters sprinkled about, adding a bit more of that shabby feel to these tags.

FRAMED-20210717_181450

FRAMED-20210717_181519

FRAMED-20210717_181554

In the photos above you can see some more details. I used quite a few of my fussy cut pieces to create my clusters, and even cut apart one of the Prima stems to add some extra texture to my tags. It took me a long time to be able to cut apart pre-packaged embellishments, but now that I have become more comfortable with it, I have found it has led to more creativity because I look at items with a “how can I use this” mentality instead of a “how is this supposed to be used” one!

I have a $5 glue gun that has been working well for me for years now. I like to use a low-heat gun most of the time because it allows me to touch the items I’m working with (almost always paper!) and shape it! And that’s what I did for my butterflies and flowers—I shaped them around globs of hot glue!

FRAMED-20210717_181508

FRAMED-20210717_181545

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie, I hope these tags inspired you and gave you some ideas of what you can do with the items found in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit! I’ll see you again next Thursday!
