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_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.

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!

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-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!

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 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.

20210504_100134-FRAMED

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.


Video:


20210504_100222-FRAMED 20210504_100254-FRAMED

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.

20210504_100242-FRAMED 20210504_100312-FRAMED

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.

20210504_100358-FRAMED

20210504_100345-FRAMED

20210504_100333-FRAMED

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.

20210504_100201-FRAMED

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!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-November 2020 Scrapbooking Kit -Color Board

Hey all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you a purse-size calendar I created using the color inspiration (image below) and the papers and chipboard found in this month’s scrapbooking kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club.

20201112_132834-FRAMED

Compared to other books/journals I’ve made, this one came together rather quickly! It doesn’t have a thick spine, so I couldn’t get carried away adding extra pages. Check out the video below to see how I did it.


Video:


Isn’t this a beautiful color board? I love the look of purple and gold together! Keep scrolling down, there are some photos of the finished calendar below!!Color challenge


20201112_132846-FRAMED

I wanted to add a little something extra to the cover, but I also wanted it to hold up to use, so I opted for some Beautiful Board from ReneaBouquets and some stars I made using my “Stars & Moons” Mould, some tabletop epoxy, alcohol ink and Magical Shakers for color, and some mica flakes. Between you and me, those stars came out fabulously!


20201112_133106-FRAMED 20201112_133042-FRAMED

I couldn’t believe how lucky I was that I just happened to have a book cover in just the right shade of yellow-gold with the perfect title for a calendar! I don’t know what the book originally was, but I loved being able to repurpose the cover.

The next six photos are close-ups of the inside cover, pocket pages, and the calendar cover; you can also see those custom paper clips I made.

20201112_133020-FRAMED 20201112_133028-FRAMED

This little book calendar is now ready for 2021 to get here! The calendar has some space to write on, and there are a few pockets for lists and receipts to be tucked in.


20201112_133200-FRAMED

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie, I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you an idea of how you can interpret the color board and of what can be done with the papers found in this month’s scrapbooking kit!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you the junk journal I created using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from the Tres Jolie Kit Club. I had such a blast making this journal, and even though I didn’t originally intend to kill the kit, as I kept going it became a personal challenge to see if I could get everything in!

DSC_0064-FRAMED

For the video I put the flip-through in at the beginning, then followed it up with the process. I hope you take a peek at it and enjoy it! Below the video I have added a few photos of the finished journal.


Video:


DSC_0065-FRAMED DSC_0071-FRAMED

I used the new Tim Holtz color, “Speckled Egg,” throughout the journal. It went beautifully with the Stamperia papers that came in this months kit. For the resin pieces I used some of the “Speckled Egg” oxide and embossing glaze, and some “Gathered Twig” Distress Crayon.

I pieced together the smaller “left-over” pieces to cover the “manila” colored tags that came in the kit and added some string from my stash.

DSC_0078-FRAMED DSC_0089-FRAMED

I cut out the ATC sized cards from the paper and attached them to one side of the popcorn bag that came in my kit! (Your bag may be different) I turned the two music prints into envelopes and added them in, and peeking out of this one is a little notebook I made from the largest left-over piece I had and some standard notebook paper.

DSC_0096-FRAMED DSC_0097-FRAMED

The final page and inside of the back cover, which contains a flip out.

I hope you enjoyed this project and had a chance to see my process video, most of it is sped up, but I do stop to explain in quite a few areas! Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Cards, Tags & More Kit-Envelope Notebook

Hi, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you a little journal I created using the Simple Stories line that was in this month’s Cards, Tags, & More kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. As soon as I saw the kit I knew what I wanted to do with those papers, frames, and stickers! I didn’t go in with a plan of action, just a vague goal for the finished product, but I eventually made my way through all my own confusion and got it done!

DSC_0066-FRAMED

Those chipboard frames made perfect window pockets! Check out my video to get an idea of what I did! And below the video, you’ll find photos of the pages! I think it is easier to “explain” this project with the video, especially since it is mostly just clueing papers down, but I do give a bit of an overview as I work on the first couple of pages. If you just want to see the end result, I do a final overview around the 37:40 mark.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Sketch Challenge

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you the project I did for the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s monthly challenge (sketch image below the video)! I love A.B. Studio papers, and I almost always think they should be turned into some kind of notebook or journal! Maybe it’s because they are all so awesome I just want to see them all at once! And with Tres Jolie Kits, I get to see a lot of A.B. Studio!
DSC_0001-FRAMED

I didn’t entirely think up this project on my own, I knew I wanted to do a journal, but I didn’t necessarily want to do a full junk journal. The A.B. Studio Instagram solved my problem when I saw an accordion fold mini album on a post (using the same paper line, none the less)!

Check out my video below!



Original Sketch Mirrored Sketch
sketch Sketch-Mirrored

I used the mirrored sketch as my journal cover, and included the tag and clock elements! Sketches don’t always have to be for layouts!

I’ve included images of the inside of my journal if you’d like to see it closer!
