Tres Jolie Kit Club-October Scrapbooking Kit & Sketch

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

This week I’m bringing you my sketch challenge project using this month’s scrapbooking kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club. I didn’t do a whole lot to my layout, because I really loved all the detail in the beautiful Blue Fern Studio’s paper and I just couldn’t bring myself to “covering it up”!


Check out the video below to see the simple steps I took to put this layout, featuring a photo of my great-grandmother, together!


Have you seen this month’s sketch? It’s a beauty!

Here is the original sketch: And here is how I rotated it:

Now, how about a few close-ups?


Here you can see how that Shimmerz has just a touch of sparkle to it and pools around the crackle paste, giving a touch of color that goes along with the pinkish-purple of the flowers.


Using one of the 49 & Market flower pack found in the kit this month I created three clusters, and under each cluster I added some extra detail from some fussy cut flowers and lace from another sheet of the Blue Fern Studios paper. Then, for some more detail, I added some texture pebbles and glass glitter from my stash.


I added three layers of Baked Texture (from my stash) to the large chipboard frame found in this month’s kit, added my photo, and used some corrugated cardboard to lift it from the page some so a couple of the flowers could get tucked underneath.


I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items found in this month’s Scrapbooking Kit!

YouTube Hop-Get some “Christmas Cheer” with Tres Jolie Kit Club & Blue Fern Studios!

Good morning! I hope y’all are ready for an exciting YouTube Hop where you will be viewing projects created by Design Team Members from Tres Jolie Kit Club and Blue Fern Studios! All of the projects you will be seeing are showcasing the new “Christmas Cheer” line by Blue Fern Studios; the line you can find in the December Scrapbooking Kit by Tres Jolie Kit Club!

**Important** Be sure you give each video a thumbs up, leave a comment, and follow each channel for a chance to win a prize! Thank you!!**

**The Hop will run from December 6, 2019 – December 20, 2019**

To get you started, here is the project I created for the hop!


Using the “Christmas Cheer” papers, I altered a wooden box and created an accordion fold album to fit inside.

Hop Video:


After removing the hinges and latch off the box, I used some of my “Christmas Cheer” papers to wrap the box! I then used some “Bronze Age” Prima wax from my stash, added the poinsettia clusters, from Blue Fern Studios, the ornament chipboard from the “Christmas Cheer” line, the charms, and the Prima bird, all found in the Tres Jolie Kit!

The hinges are the original hinges, but I changed the latch to a slightly more ornate on I had in my stash and added some feet, also from my stash, to the box. On the edges I rubbed on a mix of Prima waxes and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.


As you can see, I used more of my Prima wax on the chipboard ornaments and on the charms before tucking them into the clusters! I also put a light dusting of the Lindy’s Gang, “Silver Moon Mistletoe,” (from the kit) on the poinsettias!

To “dye” the interior of the box I used my Distress Oxide Spray “Blueprint Sketch” & Distress Spray Stain “Weathered Wood;” which I then followed up with a coat of Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer so the epoxy wouldn’t leech the color out. I sprinkled some Prima mica flakes in the lid and base, poured in my epoxy, then sprinkled some more mica flakes on top. The epoxy takes 24-hours to cure, so I set my pieces on a high, level shelf and left it alone! (Well, I might have dragged something to stand on so I could peek, but I didn’t touch it!)



I created my own knobs using a Prima mould, Amazing Cast Resin, and some Chicago screws (post & screw connectors). To give the knobs their color, I stirred in some “Heirloom Gold” Perfect Pearls into the resin before pouring it in to the mould, and after it was set I added some metallique wax.

I used some sari silk to create the tie closure for the album and to tie the tag “bundles” together for each pocket.




The album is now ready to have some memories added! There is ample space for photos and notes, and the box can be used as part of your décor as well as keeping the album protected!

Clipboard Calendar – ReneaBouquets November Swap on


This month over on, ReneaBouquets Design Team Member, Donna, hosted a clipboard calendar swap. This is what I made for my partner, who told me a few of his faves, which include shabby chic, greens, and purple! As soon as I had that list I knew I’d be using paper from Blue Fern Studios “Eclectic Charm” line and tons of ReneaBouquets elements!

Check out my process video to see the transformation!

Spring Fling Tag Swap at Reneabouquets!

Over on Facebook, Reneabouquets hosted a “Spring Fling” tag swap for May! This is the tag I came up with for my partner! (Well, I added to what I had been thinking of, because I had daffodils on the brain as soon as I signed up! LOL)

The daffodils are cut from a thin Mulberry Paper and after I put them together I coated them in (watered down) Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze and added the stamen. And actually, I didn’t have the right shade of yellow for them, so after cutting the trumputs out I soaked them in Shimmerz: Creameez “Daffodil” (that was just a lucky coincidence the color I was looking for was also appropriately named!)
