Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Altered Box

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog!

Today I’m bringing you my third, Tres Jolie Kit Club, Mixed Media Kit project of June, an altered box. I’ve been keeping this box around since I ate the candy that was in it back in December. I knew I’d eventually find a way I wanted to use it!


It took me building up a few layers of mediums to get the look I wanted, check out the video below to see how it all (finally!) came together.


To the lid of the box, I added some ReneaBouquets Beautiful Board & “Candy” (flatbacks), cabochons, resin flowers from my stash, and some of the glass glitter that had come in the April 2020 Mixed Media Kit. For the roses, I used Lindy’s Magical Powder to give them their color, and the Gilding Polish on the cabochons.


You can see how I made a double crackle effect by layering some Tim Holtz “Crazing” Distress Medium (from my stash) on top of the Cosmic Shimmer Crackle Paste from this month’s kit. Then, to really bring out the “Crazing” cracks, I rubbed in some of the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish from the kit.


I hope you enjoyed this project, and that it gave you some ideas of what the mediums can do that came with this month’s kit! I’ll see you again in July!

Creative Embellishments May 2020 Challenge-Steampunk Card

Hey, all! This is the last project I’m doing for May, but I’ll be back on June 1, 2020 with the Tres Jolie Kit Club Reveal!

Today I have a steampunk card I created for the May Challenge over on the Creative Embellishments Blog.


I don’t know what I’ll be doing with the card yet, but it’s good to have some one hand! Or so I’ve heard, I’m not a real big card maker, I find them difficult to do! But I’m happy with how this one has come out! All of the chipboard gears, the ATCoins, and the Circle Shaker Set are from Creative Embellishments, I just added the Patina and Rust Effect Pastes to go with my old, DCWV paper.

I always say “that was easy” after I finish a card, but I always have trouble getting myself to make another one! Maybe I’ll slowly (likely very, very slowly!) start making more!
I hope you enjoyed this card & thank you for joining me here in my corner!
