Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!
Today I’m bringing you my third (and final) project this month using the June Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club; a sampler of smaller projects—ATCs, Memorydex®, and a notecard & envelope.
With my three projects this month, I used up every little bit of the June Cards, Tags, & More Kit, and had a fabulously fun time doing it! Check out my video below to see how my samples came together!
First up, my ATCs:
I used Tim Holtz’s “Crackling Campfire” and “Salvaged Patina” for the color scheme of my ATCs. The bases are Prima ATCs, dyed some white tulle with Distress Oxide Stain, and I used the clockfaces, butterflies, phrases, and flowers (my flowers were different!) from the kit to top them.
Here are some close-ups of each ATC:
Next, my Memorydex cards:
Since these cards are meant to go onto a Memorydex®, I kept them a bit flatter than the ATCs. Three of the card’s color scheme are Tim Holtz’s “Blueprint Sketch” & “Mustard Seed” and three are the same as the ATCs, “Salvaged Patina” & “Crackling Campfire.” I grabbed up some sisal for four of the cards and actually just used my wax seals to hold it in place! I used my last butterfly and gears from the kit and added some cut out pieces from the Stamperia paper pack. (Note: At the time I didn’t have the June Mixed Media Kit yet, so I used some Nuvo Gilding Flakes from my stash. As a reminder, the June Mixed Media Kit comes with a jar of Finnabair’s “Steampunk” Metallic Flakes!)

And finally, my notecard and envelope:
For my envelope I was 100% inspired by Nathifa (Pronounced: na-tee-fa) from Juicy Christians Studios (in my video I only refer to her Instagram handle because I hadn’t heard her say her name or read the pronunciation yet, and I didn’t want to pronounce it wrong!). I am completely obsessed with watching her make envelopes! When I got down to having only pieces from the cut apart sheet left, I figured I’d try my hand at making an envelope.
I used some Kraft paper from my stash, turned a stencil into a stamp, cut out Every. Last. Piece. of the cut apart sheet, and layered things up—using my black Stabilo to create my shadows! I wrote my name on the back flap, to show where a return address would go, and used a silver marker to create the recipient’s address box. Now I may have finally found a use for all the cut apart sheets I’ve collected over the years! (Fussy cutting isn’t my most favorite activity!)
Here are close-up of the front and back of the envelope:
