Tres Jolie Kit Club–Fold Out Cards–September 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all! This week I have a couple of quick and easy fold-out cards using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club for you!

Both of these cards go together quickly, so if you find you need a card on short notice, either of these will work as a quick way to add a personal touch.

Sept22-foldOutCards-01
Check out the video to see just how quickly these cards go together – I don’t really have to talk too much because there is more cutting and gluing involved in these two cards than anything else!



Easy-peasy, right? Check out the photos below to get a closer look at the details!Sept22-foldOutCards-02

The overall size of this first card is 4”x6” (10.16cm x 15.24cm) – which is what the base rectangle is cut to. The accordion fold section is a 5”x12” (12.7cm x 30.48cm) strip of cardstock, scored at 3”, 6”, 9”, and 10.5” (7.62cm, 15.24cm, 22.86cm, and 26.67cm).

I tucked some sheer ribbon between the 4” x 6” base cardstock and the patterned paper I chose to use so I’d be able to tie the card closed when it was finished.

Sept22-foldOutCards-06 Sept22-foldOutCards-05

I cut all of my patterned paper 1/8” smaller than the cardstock which will leave a 1/16” cardstock border to show around the edges.

After my patterned papers were glued down, I added a few strips of the gold trim, using my Tim Holtz Media Tool (a T-square type of tool made to fit the Tim Holtz Glass Mat) to keep my lines of glue straight.

Sept22-foldOutCards-03

I cut out the flower heart from the papers, inked the edges, added some foam squares, and popped it onto a heart-shaped cardstock piece (also with inked edges), then just added one of the sentiments from the Paper Boutique papers in this month’s kit.


Sept22-foldOutCards-07

This second fold-out card went together just as easily as the first one. I created a cut file, made for 12” x 12” cardstock, glued the two pieces together, and picked out my papers.

I alternated between blue and pink papers for the panels and used the dies from the kit to create a little extra decoration on the two blue sections.

As with the first fold-out card, I cut my patterned papers down 1/8” to allow a 1/16” border of cardstock.

Sept22-foldOutCards-09 Sept22-foldOutCards-10

For a couple of the panels, I pieced together some of the patterned paper instead of cutting into a new piece of paper!

Sept22-foldOutCards-13

To finish up the front of the card, I added some of the gold trim, a blue rectangle die cut, and a sentiment.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-August 2020 Sketch-“This Beautiful Life”

Hey, all! Welcome back to my little corner!

This week I am bringing you a layout I created for the Tres Jolie Kit Club’s August 2020 sketch challenge using the August 2020 Scrapbooking Kit! This kit includes the scrumptious “Diva” papers from A.B. Studio, some beautiful Prima flowers and ephemera, chipboard from Dusty Attic and Scrapaholics, and a pack of resin pieces from Scrapberry.

DSC_0005-FRAMED

I just adore the “Diva” Collection, and it took me a little while to figure out exactly what I was going to do with it, and to tell the truth, the large cut out bonus piece in the pack did a lot of the work for me! Check out the sketch this month, then look below it to see my process video!

To add a little texture to the background I did some water distressing along the edge of the blue-grey paper and added some light stenciling, using an Art Anthology stencil and some texture paste from my stash, where it would peek out from behind my layers.

DSC_0010-FRAMED DSC_0016-FRAMED

Even though fussy cutting isn’t my most favorite part of crafting, I just had to add in some of the black & white flowers and foliage from the cut apart sheet in the “Diva” collection. For my chipboard keys and ornaments I pulled out a couple of Prima Fluid Chalks (that came in previous Tres Jolie kits) and just dabbed them on!

DSC_0006-FRAMED DSC_0007-FRAMED

Those Prima flowers were the perfect complement to the “Diva” papers, and the pack of “Darcelle” ephemera gave me the piece I needed for the perfect title.

If you haven’t checked out my video yet, that photo is of my grandmother and mother, which I edited and added that sparkle filter to.

Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie! I hope my layout and take on this month’s sketch inspired you and gave you some ideas for your next project!

Mixed Media Place-June 2020 Challenge-Green Dragon

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you an altered hoop I made for the June 2020 Challenge over at Mixed Media Place. I didn’t use a traditional embroidery hoop for this project, I just happened to have, what I believe was, an old Tri-Chem® hoop. It conveniently came with a metal insert, so I had a nice sturdy surface to work on!

DSC_0030-WM

My original idea for this project looked nothing like what came about; I hadn’t even considered a dragon originally! I had originally planned to go with a nature theme, but when I was looking through my chipboard to see what types of leaves I might have, I came across the dragon, thought, “Hey! Dragons can be green…,” and from there I just went with it. Check out my process video below the Mixed Media Place Challenge Board to see how it all went together.

Now, for a few close-up photos:

DSC_0038-WM

The chipboard dragon from Creative Embellishments was what started my inspiration for my project.

I used two Prima/Finnabair paints on the dragon, Opal Magic “Green-Gold” and Sparks “Fairy Wings.”

DSC_0035-WM

DSC_0031-WM

It wasn’t a full pack of flowers, but I hadn’t used very many of the 49 & Market “Emerald Isle” previously; this project finished my pack off.

I love all of Finnabair’s Rust Effect Pastes in their original colors, but this project called for a little sparkle to be added to them, so I watered down the Opal Magic paint and let it separate and pool at will.

DSC_0033-WM

DSC_0043-WM

I used a mix of Brea Reese Texture Pebbles and some (very) micro glass beads at final accents.

Here you can see just how VERY micro those yellow glass microbeads are.

DSC_0034-WM

The stencil I used on the background is one I made quite a while ago in Silhouette Studio and cut with my Cameo 3 (which wasn’t easy on stencil material!) The iridescent beads are “Citrus Breeze” from ReneaBouquets.

Thank you for joining me here in my little corner! I hope you enjoyed this project!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Hello

Hi, all! Welcome back to my blog! Can you believe it’s already June?

In case you missed the reveal post, this month marks the 2-year anniversary for the Tres Jolie Kit Club!! Huge shout out to Kim for putting fabulous kits together for the past two years!!

Now, on to my first project of the month!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

This kit gave me two of my favorite products, something metal, and something that has a crackle effect! And if having a metal envelope wasn’t enough, the Metallic Gilding Polish is a dream! Check out my video to see how I put this fabulous décor piece together!


Now, have a look at these close ups!

DSC_0025-FRAMED

Look how smooth that Metallic Gilding Polish is! You’d never know it wasn’t the original color of the “hello” and the leaves!

DSC_0002-FRAMED

I’m a hoarder, especially when it comes to flowers! And these Prima flowers from previous Tres Jolie Kits were no exception! Kim is always generous with the flowers she adds to kits, which works perfect for those of us who may use them more sparingly, and those who don’t! You’ll always have enough!

DSC_0009-FRAMED

I love the teal, black, and grey of the flowers! The match the patina of the envelope, and compliment the pinks of the Lindy’s Gang Magical Powder & the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

Check out those cracks! Aren’t they fabulous?!?! As my final touch I found a package of Prima Say It In Crystals in my stash that have gems that were the perfect match!

I hope you enjoyed this project & that it gave you some ideas of what to do with your kit this month!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-iNSD 2020 Challenge-Masculine Layout

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Here are some more photos and a video of the project I did for Rae’s “Masculine Layout” challenge, sponsored by the Tres Jolie Kit Club, for International Scrapbooking Day (iNSD)!

To recap, the challenge was to create a masculine layout that included stenciling and chipboard, plus a bonus for using flowers! I used four stencils, I have a piece of chipboard from the May scrapbooking kit and some Grungeboard from my stash, and I got the flowers on…something that isn’t always easy with a “masculine” layout! Plus, and I like to think my subconscious was helping me out here, my layout fits this months sketch challenge (with the sketch rotated 180°, shown below).

I layered my stenciling on top of each other before topping with my Grungeboard chevrons! With all the stenciling, there was already so much going on that I opted to keep it relatively simple around the photo.
DSC_0010-FRAMED DSC_0014-FRAMED
I created the colors I wanted for both of the texture pastes using the paints from the Mixed Media kit & items from my stash (see video for full details!) The chevrons were painted with just simple black gesso (from the Mixed Media kit! to keep them nice and matte!
DSC_0008-FRAMED DSC_0013-FRAMED
Getting flowers on a masculine layout isn’t always easy, but I dug into my stash and pulled out pack of neutral flowers. I don’t know how long I’ve owned those Tim Holtz Framed Words, but I found a place for “Adventure” with this layout!

I hope that you were able to join us over at Tres Jolie for the iNSD challenges! I also hope that this layout gave you an idea of what can be done with items from the kits this month, and with the sketch!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–May 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Grunge Canvas

Hey, all! Welcome back to my blog! Today I am bringing you my first official project of the month using the May Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club! (I say official because some of the mediums made their way onto my projects for the iNSD challenges over this past weekend!)

For my first project I made a Steampunk/Grunge piece using the canvas, the mediums, one of the VHS reels, and the pack of Prima Trinkets.

DSC_0012-FRAMED

My thought process for the coloring was rather simple! I was just sitting and staring at the mediums and ended up thinking “Yellow & Blue make Green!” Or in this case, gold and blue make teal!!

Check out the video to see how I put all this together:


Now, how about some close-ups?

DSC_0014-FRAMED DSC_0020-FRAMED
I made built up some texture paste at the upper left and lower right corners before adding the wax and paint! I had a mix of chipboard and metal embellishments, but brought them together with paint!
DSC_0022-FRAMED DSC_0026-FRAMED
I stacked and stacked to give dimension to my canvas and added three contrasting Prima Pebbles as a final touch! Even though I have a lot of different textures, keeping with the same color as the paint kept it from being overwhelming!

DSC_0021-FRAMED

I hope this project gave you some ideas of what you can do with items from this month’s Mixed Media Kit! I’ll be back on YouTube and the blog on the 15th with another Mixed Media project! Keep an eye out for projects from the other Tres Jolie Designers! And don’t forget to visit the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café and check out the sketch and mood board challenges!
