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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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!

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!

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