Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!
Today I’m bringing you a Loaded Envelope I made using the Tres Jolie Kit Club September scrapbooking kit & moodboard! I just love the “Industrial Romance” papers from ScrapBoys in this month’s kit. They are the perfect combination of steampunk & flowers, and just great to look at and play with!
I used the solid cardstock (from my stash) to build the envelope, then used the papers from the kit on the envelope, tags, and wands. Check out the video below where I describe the completed envelope. Below the video you will find the September Moodboard and some more photos!
Here is my envelope with three pockets. The final size is 9in x 6in (after all the photos I have included a sketch of the measurements), with the second pocket 4 1/2in and the third pocket 3in. The sketch is the measurements for the basic construction, the only thing no included in the sketch is the 9in x 6in piece of cardstock I used as the top of the back pocket; the one folded down with the zipper.
This is the front and back of the shaker wand I created using a ReneaBouquets Small Shaker Box. I used the professor from the Tim Holtz “The Professor” stamp set (from my stash) on the back piece of acetate and one of the small wings from the Mechanicals found in this month’s kit as the mustache, then back that with a square of paper from the ScrapBoys stack in the kit. The large key in the shaker is from this month’s kit, but all the other parts are from my stash. For the back, I added Tim Holtz’s “Voltage” die, which is painted using Prima’s “Steampunk Copper” Paint and spray with the Lindy’s Gang from the kit. And all of the copper “welding”? It’s Tulip Fabric Paint – Beads In A Bottle – “Copper”!
For the Hummingbird Wand, I used a cut file from the Silhouette Store, a Tim Holtz Rosette, some pieces from the cut apart sheet, and a ReneaBouquets Hummingbird. For the lacy wand, I just grabbed up some lace from my stash and added another Tim Holtz Rosette and a cut apart pieces as well.
And finally here are the tags and little note card I made to go in the pockets! I just eye-balled the sizes based on the paper I was working with!
The measurements for my envelope.
