Tres Jolie Kit Club–Tag Flip!-June 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all! I have my last project using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club for you today, a little, zipper-closed, tag flip book that is just perfect for jotting down notes to yourself – things you want to remember – ephemera you may want to tuck away, or just a little place to doodle in. This project is completely customizable – you can use whatever materials and colors you want. And the best part? It doesn’t even have to make sense to anybody else! It’s all you!

tagFlip-jun22ctm-04

I had quite a pile of tags already die-cut from my previous two Cards Kit projects this month that my original thought was to make a tag flip booklet that went on a book ring, but then I started laying out all my tags, and realized that what I really wanted to do was make something a little more interactive – and this was the result! Check out the video to see how I put it all together.

I still had a lot of die cuts left from my Memory Dex Cards, so I added them to this project. Both the butterfly on the front cover and the flower on the back were cut out of the leftover handmade paper I had from my Junk Journal project that was posted on the 9th. I added some of the Eyelet Outlet Jewels to my butterfly body and popped on a few of the Prima flowers. You can see the random, wayward stitching that I used for my zipper, who knows what kind of stitching I would have used if I had thought about a zipper closure before putting everything together!

tagFlip-jun22ctm-03

Want to add a bit of personalization to your cover material? For me, a paint pen was the way to go! A regular pen, or even a gel pen, wouldn’t work so well on this rough burlap, a marker would probably work some, but I think a paint pen was best because I can make dots just by holding the nib down and letting the paint pool.

tagFlip-jun22ctm-07 tagFlip-jun22ctm-05

I just grabbed up some washi tape I’ve had for years with quotes on it and ran it across all the back tags, then ran some silver dot washi across the top of the left side of the booklet, and the bottom of the right side to fill in a little more and give some shine. I added brads to my tag holes – mostly to use them up – and added random stitching on my KaiserCraft white cardstock tabs to give them some color.

tagFlip-jun22ctm-12

I had these little metal flips in my stash and decided to add them in with some silver brads to hold little stacks of the rest of the tags that weren’t sewn in as part of the booklet. You can also see that for some more personalization, I colored in the outer edge of my tab with a gel pen. No rhyme or reason, just grabbing up a pen that I felt like using at the moment! Having an assortment of pens comes in handy because it can also be a way to express the mood you’re feeling when adding to your booklet.

tagFlip-jun22ctm-11 tagFlip-jun22ctm-06

When it came time to put my third Cards Kit project of the month together, I found myself staring at tags and die-cuts I had already made on leftover handmade paper, and the beginning of an idea to do something that opened in more than one direction. I just started laying tags out, trying to build the “direction” of everything in my mind as I went, so I didn’t just make a booklet that had “pages” that turned from right-to-left. I cut off bits of the burlap and canvas to make flip-up, flip-downs, and flip-outs. When I ran my washi across, I wrapped it around the tags that were “pages” (not the ones made to flip up or down). I didn’t want to stamp on all of my tags, and I didn’t want to cover the whole surface – there needed to be someplace to write – so I left some of the tags bare and added in the rest of the tags I had cut.

tagFlip-jun22ctm-10 tagFlip-jun22ctm-09

With some of the smaller die cuts – either solid shapes or outlines/frames – that were from the KaiserCraft white cardstock, I added some of the silver polka-dot washi tape and some stitching around the edges. If it was just an outline, I folded the tape in half so it would stick to itself, and used it as the center of the die-cut, which was also folded in half.

tagFlip-jun22ctm-08

As you can see, there are loads of places to write little notes or tuck in bits of ephemera you want to keep!

Thank you for joining me here in my little corner, I hope you enjoyed this little tag flip booklet and it gave you some ideas for making your own personalized little booklet.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–June 2022 Mood Board-“Let Your Creativity Bloom” Junk Journal

Hey, y’all!

This week I turned the June Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club into a junk journal. The P13 papers and ephemera from their “Let Your Creativity Bloom” line had such beautiful colors – muted shades of pink and sage – and there was a photo of a book in this month’s mood board! What else would I think up for the challenge?!?!

I didn’t just put any old fabrics and papers together, I decided that to be extra messy, I needed to dye my fabrics exactly how I wanted and make my own (matching) paper – check out my video to see the process, or, if you want, you can just check out the flip-through.junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-01

On my cover, I layered up strips of fabric, so of the ones I dyed, some are scraps from my stash. I topped a part of one of the patterned papers with one of the Tres Jolie Chipboard pieces coated with some embossing powders, added a few of the flowers, and added some Distress Foundry Wax in “Sterling” as some accent color. Check out the video to see the process of my junk journal from start to finish!

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-02 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-03 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-05

This junk journal is thick! There are over 50 pages filled with lots of writing space, tuck-ins, and pockets – and a securely attached tie closure to keep it together.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-06 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-26

On both the front and back covers I added a section of lace trim, lightly colored with Distress Oxides, as tuck in spots.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-09 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-25

I turned envelopes into pockets, covered them with strips of fabric, and added closures to a couple of them – a zipper on one and a simple tie on another.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-11 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-12 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-24

I have tuck-in spots throughout the journal made up of layers of papers and ephemera. I have even added in some old book pages from a 1935 History of English Literature book – I thought this book fit well with the overall “Creativity” theme.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-07 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-10 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-13

I wanted to add a lot of texture and visual interest in this journal, so I have short pages, ledger papers, bits of fabric and lace, and tons of stitching in here. There is something to see and feel everywhere!

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-14 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-15

I turned this bit of patterned paper into a simple flip-up card using some lace as the hinge and adding a tab to the edge.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-17 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-18

a sheet of patterned paper torn makes a wonderfully distressed pocket! And I just couldn’t bring myself to (fully) separate this stretch of flowers, I used the last bits of that particular lace to make hinges between four inch sections so it could be pulled out – and the image could stay together.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-08 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-21

Old music sheets add a lovely aged touch while also making fabulous pockets. I even used the envelopes from the ephemera and tickets to create little tuck-in areas.

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-19 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-23

When I saw all that leftover dyed water from my fabrics, I couldn’t just let it go to waste, so I added scraps of paper and created my own custom-colored, dapple-edged sheets – either glued to decorated envelopes and pages, or straight into tuck spots to be written on (I suggest using markers, paint pens, or gel pens though, due to the uneven nature of handmade paper!)

junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-22 junkJournal-moodboard-jun22-20

I didn’t want to just simply cover my basic white envelopes, so I added fabric, lace, paper, and/or ephemera to create variety and interest. I used one of the Prima flower packs from the kit, and in addition to my cover decoration, I stitched flowers directly onto some of the tuck-ins.


As promised in the video, here is the “stitching guide” (I don’t know what else to call it!) for how I put my signatures in.

How I stitched in my signatures:

  • Out = from the inside –> out
  • In = from the outside –> in
  • First-Middle-Third = Signature from left to right
  • Top, Second, Middle, Fourth, Last = Hole, from top to bottom.
First Signature: Middle Signature: Third Signature:
Out – First – Middle

In – Third – Second

Out – Third – Top

In – First – Second

Out – First – Fourth

In – Third – Last

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Paper Bag Journal-May 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all!

This week’s project is a paper bag journal using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club, some kraft stock and transparencies from my stash, and of course, paper bags. I just searched through my stash until I came across some items that I’ve had for ages – and decided I needed to quit hoarding them! Plus, the kraft stock matches the paper bags!

pprBagNotebook-02

Check out the video to see how this little journal came together!


Video:


Pretty quick and simple, right? You don’t need “special” tape for this journal – clear packing tape works just fine and goes much better with the transparencies!

pprBagNotebook-01

For the cover, I grabbed up one of the Tres Jolie Chipboard butterflies, coated it with some white gesso, and added a couple of the Finnabair Mica’s from this month’s Mixed Media Kit using the Liquid Color Fluid Medium from March’s Mixed Media Kit to make those mica’s permanent. I used my JudiKins Diamond Glaze to get a nice seal with the cover. I didn’t mind the Diamond Glaze leaking out some, because I was already planning to add it to the top of the butterfly to give it a bit of a curved surface and now my butterfly almost looks like it has welded seams! After the cover was dry, I popped on a few of the Say-It-In-Crystal’s and called it done.

pprBagNotebook-04 pprBagNotebook-05

I’m not going to show every page in the journal, I’m just going to focus on the ones that have pockets – some are “plain,” but I’ll explain that reasoning closer to the end. I didn’t close up any of the bag openings, I decided to turn them all into side pockets – including the cover. I covered the bags with the patterned paper and used a hexagon punch to make some thumb holes.

I turned one of the kraft sheets into a pocket with a flap and added some of the patterned paper inside for a spot of color.

For all of my bends and hinges, I used regular packing tape because I wanted to add some reinforcement, but I didn’t want it to really stand out.

pprBagNotebook-06 pprBagNotebook-07

My journal is comprised of three paper bags, three kraft sheets, and three transparencies – layered like this:

  • Paper bag Cover with reinforced spine and eyelets added
  • Kraft stock – transparency – paper bag connected with eyelets
  • Kraft stock – transparency – paper bag connected with eyelets
  • Kraft stock & transparency connected with eyelets

I wanted to reinforce my holes, but I didn’t have long eyelets, so I just decided to make sections, then I used some macramé cord to tie it all together.

I really like using the printed transparencies because they make clear pockets, but are not totally see-through because of the print – plus I would sometimes add some strips of patterned paper to one side to create some visual interest. As you can see in the above image, some of the pages made from a transparency have side openings.

pprBagNotebook-12

A couple more side open pockets, and one of the paper bag bottoms – which I talk about a few paragraphs down.

pprBagNotebook-09 pprBagNotebook-10

Some pocket pages were made from one of the transparencies and from one of the kraft sheets (I just used a scrap of patterned paper here to show the pockets).

pprBagNotebook-11

The center of my journal is one of the transparencies turned into side pockets. When I put my eyelets in, I thought about how they would be facing so the finished side would be showing in the center.

pprBagNotebook-03 pprBagNotebook-13

For the pages made from the bottoms of the paper bags, I covered the bag with bits of leftover patterned paper and made two shallow pockets. Where the bottom folded up flat I added some glue along the edges to make one pocket, then added a strip of patterned paper about halfway up to create a second pocket.

pprBagNotebook-08 pprBagNotebook-14

As you can see, this journal is filled with pockets that you can tuck all your photos and notes into! And the reason for the “plain” pages? So you can grab up some colored pencils, markers, crayons, pens, etc., and add your own touch – maybe based on whatever mood you’re feeling at that given moment.

Thank you for joining me here in my corner, I hope you enjoyed this paper bag journal and it gave you some ideas of what you can do with some “plain” cardstock you have in your stash and this month’s Cards, Tags, and More Kit.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Mini Junk Journal–April Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all! Welcome back to the Corner Scraps Blog!

For my fourth and final April, Tres Jolie Kit Club project I made a Mini Junk Journal using the Cards and Mixed Media Kits. I love mixing vintage and bright; “old” and “new;” and the muted tones of the 49 & Market Cards, Envelopes, and Tags in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit were the perfect complement to the bright tones of the Dina Wakley Glossy Sprays in the Mixed Media Kit. Check out the video to see how this all went together!

Apr22-MiniJJ-30

My closure is a few layers of fabric and tulle with four large buttons added on and a section of a headband (unused!) sewn onto one end. I also added some simple hand stitches for a little extra interest.

Apr22-MiniJJ-29


Video:


Apr22-MiniJJ-28

Apr22-MiniJJ-01

I used some lightweight chipboard I found in my stash, the floral print from the packaging of the 49 & Market Card Kit, and some teal burlap-ish trim from my stash to create the cover of the journal. I then decorated it with the Tres Jolie Chipboard from the kit and some of the Dina Wakely Glossy Sprays.


These aren’t all of the pages in the journal – only about half – as examples of techniques I used in creating this project!

Apr22-MiniJJ-26

Apr22-MiniJJ-24

I created a few clusters made from bits of fabric and tulle, a tag from the 49 & Market Tag Pack, and a couple of fabric flowers. I used black thread in my sewing machine to stitch the layers together, then added some hand-stitched X’s and hand-stitched the button on. I then glued the clusters along one edge to use as tuck spots. I added a blanket stitch (sewing machine) along the majority of the pages to reinforce the edges and make sure the gel print papers and cardstock backing stayed together! (Even if I did use a lot of glue – I don’t like things coming apart!)

Apr22-MiniJJ-22

Apr22-MiniJJ-21

I didn’t close up the three sides of the envelope to make it, well, an envelope; instead, I left it so it could be all the way unfolded. Throughout the journal, I added in some wax seals – some on pages, some on paperclips.

Apr22-MiniJJ-17

Apr22-MiniJJ-16

Apr22-MiniJJ-13

Not every surface has gel printing on it! I did leave a few sides bare, plus the back of all of the tags – but most of the surfaces have glossy sprays on them, so to write in this journal I think a fine tip marker would work best.

Apr22-MiniJJ-11

On the tags, I used white thread, and instead of punching holes and adding the tag pulls, I crossed two staples from my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher.

Apr22-MiniJJ-07

Apr22-MiniJJ-06

Lots of different patterns in this junk journal, but the bright Glossy Sprays work with their muted counterparts on the 49 & Market cards and envelopes – and to really tie it all together, I stuck to just using black and white thread.

Apr22-MiniJJ-04

Apr22-MiniJJ-02

From the front cover to the back cover there is a variety of patterns and colors. The fabric flowers worked fabulously during the gel plate printing process and made their way onto the finished product.

Apr22-MiniJJ-27

The spine of the journal has some scrap fabric, tulle, fabric flowers, and buttons from my stash on it. Like the other flowers throughout the journal, these flowers also have some Glossy Spray added to them.

Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed this project – and all of the projects this month – and they gave you some ideas of what you can do!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Coptic Bound Journal-January 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome to 2022 and my corner!

For my first project of the year for Tres Jolie Kit Club, I have a Coptic Bound Journal for you. I used “resume” paper, some size 5 DMC Perle Cotton Cotton,  and tools & adhesive from my stash — along with the papers and chipboard from the kit — to create this journal.

FRAMED-CopticJournal-Jan22CT&M-01

Check out my video to see how I put mine together!


Video:


Photos, links, & measurements:

FRAMED-CopticJournal-Jan22CT&M-03 FRAMED-CopticJournal-Jan22CT&M-10

On the inside of the front and back covers I added some of the scraps from the lined paper I printed and some stickers from the Simple Stories sheet found in the kit. On the front of the first signature I added the “Learn To Fly” square from the Craft O’Clock “bonus” sheet and drew on some faux stitching.


FRAMED-CopticJournal-Jan22CT&M-12

The Simple Stories paper I added on the outside of the back cover.


Here are the measurements for where I poked my holes – where the lines intersect. The measurements are in inches, and the space between the horizontal lines.

PhotoRoom-20211231_120442

**The vertical line is 3/8” in from the left edge.**


For my journal, I made six signatures. The cover of each signature is a piece of the Simple Stories paper, scored 2-1/4”, then filled with some of my printed lined paper! I printed the lines on bother sides of the paper, but I didn’t use the same print for each side! I was lucky enough to find a monochrome laser printer for $35 in the clearance isle one day, so that is what I used. InkJet printers will work just as well—just remember the ink isn’t permanent! (Unless you have a fancy pigment ink printer!) After my journal was all together, I went through and randomly added some stickers from the Simple Stories Cardstock Sticker sheet.

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.

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.)

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.

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)

Now for a few close-ups:

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.

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!
