Tres Jolie Kit Club-Cards, Cards, Cards!-July 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! I hope you had a craft-astic July and we were able to inspire you to go out and create!
For my third Cards, Tags, & More Kit project, I have a few cards, a few different ways!

FRAMED-20210619_095329

Check out my video to see my thoughts and process for all these cards!


Video:


Now for the close-ups and a few details for each card!

FRAMED-20210619_095551

FRAMED-20210619_095609

These two cards are some basic, “flat” cards. The “Happy Birthday” card is a 4-3/4”x4-3/4” square with just a piece of the striped cardstock, a doily die cut, and a piece of vellum with the greeting embossed. The “Let’s Celebrate!” is just stamped straight on the cardstock. I used a die from my stash with the Sizzix Emboss & Transfer set to add a little dimension to those birds being “pushed through” the gold cardstock.

FRAMED-20210619_095448

FRAMED-20210619_095730

The flowers from the kit get featured with these two cards! The “Hooray” cards is a little more fun with the flourish coming out from under the flower! The vertical card is more elegant, with some bits of lace dangling with the leaves.

FRAMED-20210619_095628

FRAMED-20210619_095650

Both of these cards of pieced together background, using strips of cardstock I had leftover from my previous projects! I cut some rosettes for the slimline card—giving it the “Party” feeling. The “imagine” card is another “flat” card, but those stars are just perfect to “make a wish” on.

FRAMED-20210619_095423

FRAMED-20210619_095528

These two cards sum up my feelings about cake! Lucky and Yay!! For the card on the left I used the negative cuts from the sheet of cardstock from my first project and added in some doliy cuts to create the background. I used my hexagon punches and any bit of “scrap” cardstock I could find to create the background for the card on the right. To cards with the same greetings, but totally different looks!

FRAMED-20210619_095817

I hope you enjoyed this project, and all of the projects this month, and they gave you some ideas of what you can do with the July Kits from Tres Jolie!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July Cards, Tags, & More Kit-Folio

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you a folio as my second project this month using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. In addition to the papers from the kit, I used some chipboard, linen blend cardstock, lace, and an old pillowcase from my stash. I also created an extra notebook using my Mini Cinch to stick in. Were I to do it again, I’d think through that extra notebook a bit, but I decided to add it as an after thought! But I explain all that in the video, so be sure to check it out!

FRAMED-20210619_094601


Video:


First, here are the measurements I used:

Chipboard Measurements:

3x 9”x6”

1x 1-1/4”x9”

1x 1”x9”

Cardstock Measurements:

Front, Back, Flap: 8-3/4”x5-3/4”

Spines: 8-3/4”x1” & 8-3/4”x3/4”

Waterfall Measurements:

5-1/2”x4-1/2” on the 4-1/2” edge score at

1/2” to create a 5-1/2”x4” surface.

Folder Measurements:

12×12 Cardstock—score at 8-3/4” for pocket

fold; score at 5-3/4” for center fold.


Now for some close-ups:

FRAMED-20210619_094432

FRAMED-20210619_095018

FRAMED-20210619_095042

Here are some shots of my cover. I love the fabric of this old pillowcase, and I’ve been waiting for the right project to come along to use it on; this folio was that project! I used two old buttons from my stash and some of the seam binding from the kit to create a simple closure.

FRAMED-20210619_094845

FRAMED-20210619_094823

On the center panel of the folio I added a waterfall for holding photos. I used the doily die from the kit to add a little extra to the top, and I have a couple of small magnets in place to hold the waterfall closed.

FRAMED-20210619_094638

FRAMED-20210619_094705

FRAMED-20210619_094724

In my folio I have two folders, one in each spine, with the second one having an extra fold-out envelope to go along with it. I also added some cardstock to the last panel to create a pocket.

FRAMED-20210619_094454

I used some wide lace and some E6000 to hold it tightly in place on the front panel. Originally I thought to put my (after-thought) notepad there, before I realized the folio wouldn’t close that way! So I decided to make the extra notepad a feature on the back panel, using a headband I got either at Dollar Tree or on clearance at Target to hold it in place.

FRAMED-20210619_094619

I hope you have time to check out the video to see how I put this folio together!

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie! I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done using the items found in this months Cards, Tags, & More Kit.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2021 Moodboard: “Be Happy” Mixed Media Canvas

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you my moodboard inspired project; a mixed media canvas using items from both the July Mixed Media Kit and the July Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club! Pink flowers, gold veining, and butterflies were my inspiration from the moodboard, so I gathered my supplies and just went with it!

FRAMED-20210708_113200

I love moulds, so I was super excited when I saw that the Mixed Media Kit came with a fabulous Stamperia frames mould! Be sure to check out my video to see how I used the mould and how my canvas came together! (Note: Although I found it unnecessary with the Amazing Cast Resin, you can use various household products to help release the frames from the mold, such as baby powder, corn starch, cooking spray, and mica powder. Personally, I think the cooking spray is best for resins, and powders [would be] best for clays – because the resins absorb powders.)

Now for some close-ups:

FRAMED-20210708_113218

FRAMED-20210708_113308

FRAMED-20210708_113343

I used the Dina Wakley paints from the Mixed Media kit on my background, baseboard doll, chipboard butterfly, and frame—along with lots of water in some areas to make the paints more translucent! I added just a touch of Vintage Gold wax to the frame details and wing edges.

FRAMED-20210708_113250

FRAMED-20210708_113354

FRAMED-20210708_113436

I brushed some gel medium along the edges of the flowers to hold the gold microbeads in place, adding just a bit of detail and texture to the flowers! Then I dug into my stash and grabbed all three of my art stone bottles (mega, regular, & mini) and started adding them on. I like to sprinkle my art stones in place before adding the Diamond Glaze—that way I can get my placement down before making it permanent.

FRAMED-20210708_113423

FRAMED-20210708_113407

As my final touch, I used a metallic gold pen from my stash to add some gold “veining” along the edges of my torn paper and to circle the epoxy dots from the kit.

FRAMED-20210708_113743

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media and/or Scrapbooking Kits!

July 2021 Scrapbooking Kit

July 2021 Mixed Media Kit

In addition to items found in this month’s Mixed Media and Scrapbooking Kits (*from previous Tres Jolie Kits), I used:

Prima/Finnabair: Heavy White Gesso, Mega Art Stones, Art Stones, Mini Art Stones, & *Metallique Wax “Vintage Gold”; idea-ology/Tim Holtz: Baseboard Dolls; *13@rts: “Old Gold” XS Microspheres; Aen Art: Gold Pen; Amazing Cast Resin; Liquitex: Matte Super Heavy Gel, Gloss Gel, & Clear Gesso; JudiKins Diamond Glaze; Ranger: Glossy Accents

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July Cards, Tags, & More Kit-A “Kit + Staple Products” Project

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

For my first project for Tres Jolie Kit Club this month using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit, I’ve put together a little flipbook that can have notes and small photos added for a little memory book.

FRAMED-20210619_094202

Total [kit] materials consumed for this project? About three sheets of the paper and half of the seam binding. That’s it! And although I use a couple of circle punches from my stash, you could easily omit the circles or use household objects to trace some circles on the backs of the cardstock and fussy cut them out! Check out my video to see how I put this together!


Video:


FRAMED-20210619_094255

I used the die from the kit to cut three doilies out from two different papers, stuck the doilies together, back-to-back, cut them in half, and placed them at the tops of the pages before folding the booklet together. I used the rest of the papers to make the tags and circles.

FRAMED-20210619_094305

I added stitching along the top and bottom of my booklet, but if you don’t want to, it isn’t necessary. Glue will hold the doily halves in place just fine.

FRAMED-20210619_094317

Some pages don’t have tags on them, instead I opted to create a label shape out of the patterned paper before layering with my circles.

FRAMED-20210619_094341

My measurements:

I cut the floral sheet into 3 4x12in strips, then scored at 3, 6, & 9 inches and trimmed at 9-1/2 inches. I used the 1/2 flap to connect the strips together. The scores are folded in alternating directions, to create an accordion effect, then the backs are glued together (after I had my doilies in place) to create the pages.

FRAMED-20210619_094236

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you an idea of what can be done with items from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit! I’ll see you again soon.

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:

20210507_185314-FREAMED

20210507_185321-FRAMED

20210507_185327-FRAMED


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_185710-FRAMED

20210507_185718FRAMED

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!

Stay Crafty, Friends

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:

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!

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).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
