Tres Jolie Kit Club–Memory Dex Cards!–June 2022 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, y’all!

We’re halfway through June, and this week I have some Memory Dex cards for you that I created using items from this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club and items from my stash – quite a few from previous Tres Jolie Kits! Check out my video to see what I did for each of the cards I made – then grab up your supplies and create your own Memory Dex card(s).


I had bought the Heidi Swapp Memory Dex Spinner quite some time ago, and had originally thought of grabbing up some spray paint and changing the color – I might still do that – but I grabbed it up for this project so I’d have someplace to put my cards when they were done, and to make sure I didn’t make them too tall to clear the bottom! Depending on what kind of “–dex” system you have – be it a spinner, a box, something vintage, or something custom made – you can get very creative on how your Memory Dex cards are made! If, for example, you have the Memory Dex Box, you don’t have to worry about height, only width! (After this project was completed I happened to find a vintage Rolodex® system that would allow cards to fit in without any height or width restrictions!! *happy dance*)


A closer look at the cards I made:

memoryDex-jun22ctm-06 memoryDex-jun22ctm-09

My Concord & 9th “Lucky” Die cuts the three layers – thick line and outline from one die, thin line from another – so I made two lucky cards. The thick line and outline were cut from a half sheet of the white cardstock that I hand-inked up using a variety of Distress Oxides from my stash. The white pieces were from another partial sheet of the KaiserCraft cardstock, and on some of those, like the butterfly, I added some Distress Oxide to give a pop of color. I didn’t have any particular plans when I set out to make my cards, I just cut a lot of pieces and started layering; generally ending with a few of the Eyelet Outlet jewels and/or some of the small Prima butterflies.


I made my “Imagine” card a shaker card by cutting a circle out of the pink striped paper from this month’s kit, adding a sheet of craft foam with a circle cut out as a spacer, and filling it with some of the beads and sequins from the Buttons Galore cube from Septembers (2021) Cards Kit. I just used some plastic from an old package of die cuts – I often save the harder/stiffer plastic packaging for just this reason! – and stitched it in place with some metallic silver thread. My “Imagine” as a layer of the “Gamboge” Stencil Butter on it from the Mixed Media Kit and, while it was still wet, I sprinkled some Lindy’s Magical Powder on and spritzed it with a little water.

memoryDex-jun22ctm-05 memoryDex-jun22ctm-12

These two cards were really a couple of “let’s see how these parts work together” cards! The “grateful” card has a slot cut from the top (the label die from Tim Holtz’s “Stitched Slots”) that I just tucked a couple of large die cuts into after giving them a little color. The flower is just inked with some Distress Oxide, and the leaves have some Lindy’s Magical’s sprinkled on them. I cut the card from my inked KaiserCraft sheet, backed it with some of my leftover handmade paper, and added some stamping, jewels, & butterflies. The “grateful” had originally been stamped, but it didn’t show up very well, so I traced over it with a gel pen.

I wasn’t sure when I cut it if I would use the Bird Branch die, but I added some Magical’s, let it dry, and thought about what I’d do with it while working on other cards. Eventually, it came time to play with it, and I found that I liked how it looked with the oval frame, but the frame needed some color too! So on went some Magical and PearlEx powders. The card is another cut from my inked sheet and has some of the “Grecian Gold” Modeling paste (from the Mixed Media Kit this month!) dabbed on with my finger for a little shine. Then, to add a bit from this month’s Card’s Kit, I popped on a tab punched from one of the papers, added some orange jewels, and a Tim Holtz “Small Talk” sticker from my stash.

memoryDex-jun22ctm-11 memoryDex-jun22ctm-15

These two Memory Dex cards were made from a piece of scrap cardstock that I practiced a couple of mixed media ideas on. I have some texture paste, mica powder, and Magical powder on the base tag/Memory Dex, then I stamped the butterfly from the stamp in this month’s kit, I cut a tag-shaped frame out from my inked paper, layered a couple of more tags vertically, popped in a flower, added my jewels and phrase.

While I was doing all of my cutting, I decided to make a round Memory Dex card, so I used one of my circle dies to cut out the inked stenciling I had done (stencil from this month’s Mixed Media kit!). I stamped on the butterfly and phrase, attached a rectangle bottom, and ran it through my sewing machine a few times. The final touches were some Distress Oxide around the edges and the jewels.


When I first started this card I had thought of just attaching the pocket to another card, but as I was putting it together, I decided that I much preferred the pocket as the card! The top slot is backed by some pink cardstock from my stash, and the rest of the slots are back with white cardstock – what had been the original Memory Dex shaped card. The Tim Holtz “Stitched Slots” die is the perfect size for the spinner, I just punched the slots at the bottom and popped it right on. I used some of the smaller tags, cut with the tag dies from this month’s kit and cut from this month’s papers, to stick on some “Small Talk” phrases and slipped them into the slots. They don’t weigh a lot, so the friction between the papers is enough to hold them in place when they are upside down on the spinner. I then just added some of my die-cut hearts, outlined them with a yellow gel pen, added the label, and another “Small Talk” sticker.

memoryDex-jun22ctm-13 memoryDex-jun22ctm-14

The card with the bicycle stamped on it was probably the fastest to put together because all I did is layer up the different circles I had already cut out! I used the pink striped circle to fill the circle in the card base, then put the layers through my Sizzix using the dot embossing folder that had come with the machine, added that half-circle with some Lindy’s Magical’s stenciled on, and then all of the other plain circles. To add some contrast to all those circles, I popped on one of the smallest tags, then stamped on the bicycle and added the butterfly and phrase.

My “Spring” card was my first of the batch! I trimmed an inch off the width of a 3”x5” index card so it would fit on the spinner, used the stamp from this month to just get the flowers to peek out from behind the tag, and splattered it with some “Lemon” Glossy Spray. The tag is from some pink cardstock I had that was already adhered to an adhesive sheet. I used the thin scraps from my Folio at the beginning of the month, and just randomly layered them on the adhesive. I then cut the tag using the next to largest die in the set, peeled the protective paper the rest of the way off, and brushed on some Finnabair Mica Powder. Then I just finished up the details with some flowers, jewels, a butterfly, and the small tag.


Lastly, my “document” card. The die-cut word was too long to fit on the Memory Dex Spinner, so I cut it where it could be hyphenated, clipped off an end of the cross-mark on the “t” to use as the hyphen, and layered up a couple tags and a tab on the base card. I used some of the “Grecian Gold” Modeling paste on “document,” the stars and diamonds are from my Concord & 9th Lucky Die Set, there’s a little stamping, and a few jewels, and this card was done!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Boxes & Tags-December 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Wow, Christmas is just two days away and soon 2022 will be here!

For my third, Cards, Tags, & More Kit project this month, I used a bunch of old cardstock from my stash, some cut files, and some dies to get some small boxes, tags, and rosettes made up! Need to add some more tags to gifts? Or get some last minute stocking stuffers taken care of? Then take a peek at these! (Or use them to get a head-start on next year! Because that’s what I say I’ll do every year and never do—but it sounds good! LOL)


Check out my video to see a way to use up smaller pieces of paper you may have left over for some tags, or make yourself a small box or two if you need one in the next couple of days!



FRAMED-20211117_165019 FRAMED-20211117_164937

These first two boxes are both Snapdragon Snippet Designs that I found on the Silhouette Store. The one on the left is a 10-sided box, not too difficult to put together, but Snapdragon Snippets has “extra” flaps to reinforce the edges—which makes it much sturdier! The one with drawers is a little more time consuming to put together, but it isn’t overly difficult, and I think it would be cute for candy or small items! (Links to directions with the cut files.)


This box is also from the Silhouette Store, by Paper Closet Designs. I didn’t look to see if there were directions anywhere since it is a rather straight forward cut and quick to put together. If you wanted to gift a crafter some glue, this box is just big enough for an 8oz bottle of FabriTac!

FRAMED-20211117_164959 FRAMED-20211117_164950

These last two boxes are probably the simplest of them all! The pill box on the left is the back cover of the paper pack! It has a template on it which you can use to make more pill boxes or, like I did, just turn that template into the pill box! It depends on how many you want or need! The box on the right is from a Sizzix die – I don’t know what the name is, or if it has one, it came in the box with my Big Shot Plus!

Toppers & Tags:


Rosettes make cute gift toppers; or pop them on the end of a tag! I just used my Tim Holtz Mini Paper Rosette’s die and cranked these out! Using hot glue to hold them together means there is no dry time and they are good to go quicker!


These tags were definitely the quickest of everything I made for this week! I didn’t measure, I just grabbed the scraps of cardstock and patterned paper and eyeballed them together. I used my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper for my angled cuts, but scissors would work just the same!


Thank you for joining me here in my corner! I hope you enjoyed these ideas and they gave you some ideas of what you can do – some rather quickly – using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit!

Have a happy holiday season and a safe & happy New Year!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–Autumn Tealights-November 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

For my final project of November for Tres Jolie Kit Club, I am bringing you some fabulous home décor—Tealight Lanterns—using the Cards, Tags, & More Kit and even a bit of the lavender paste from the Mixed Media Kit!


With some dies and the beautiful “Hello Pink Autumn” papers from Prima from the kit, I put this autumn [flameless] tealight décor piece together. Check out my video to see how I did it!


FRAMED-20211024_154549 FRAMED-20211024_153512

After I cut my lanterns out and assembled them, I went back and carefully unfolded the bottoms and cut off the flaps so I could just pick them up and set them over the tealights. I also have some “Magic Potion” Effect Paste on the windows to add a little sparkle!

FRAMED-20211024_154604 FRAMED-20211024_154618

My stands are made from some cardboard tubes—the kind that is in the center of toilet paper & paper towel rolls—and since I used the same paper for the stands and the doily’s, I wanted to break it up a little, so I watered down some of the “Lavender” paste from this month’s Mixed Media Kit and just swiped it on around the tops of the stands before I added the doily’s.

FRAMED-20211024_154537 FRAMED-20211024_154630

I used my “Tattered Pinecone” Die on more paper and just rolled them up, then added some “Magic Potion” to them as well to keep the sparkle going!

After I had everything put together and it was dry, I added some sisal to the bottom for some more texture.


Thank-you for joining me here in my corner. I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you some ideas of what you can make using items from this month’s kits!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-Cards, Cards, Cards!-July 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! I hope you had a craft-astic July and we were able to inspire you to go out and create!
For my third Cards, Tags, & More Kit project, I have a few cards, a few different ways!


Check out my video to see my thoughts and process for all these cards!


Now for the close-ups and a few details for each card!



These two cards are some basic, “flat” cards. The “Happy Birthday” card is a 4-3/4”x4-3/4” square with just a piece of the striped cardstock, a doily die cut, and a piece of vellum with the greeting embossed. The “Let’s Celebrate!” is just stamped straight on the cardstock. I used a die from my stash with the Sizzix Emboss & Transfer set to add a little dimension to those birds being “pushed through” the gold cardstock.



The flowers from the kit get featured with these two cards! The “Hooray” cards is a little more fun with the flourish coming out from under the flower! The vertical card is more elegant, with some bits of lace dangling with the leaves.



Both of these cards of pieced together background, using strips of cardstock I had leftover from my previous projects! I cut some rosettes for the slimline card—giving it the “Party” feeling. The “imagine” card is another “flat” card, but those stars are just perfect to “make a wish” on.



These two cards sum up my feelings about cake! Lucky and Yay!! For the card on the left I used the negative cuts from the sheet of cardstock from my first project and added in some doliy cuts to create the background. I used my hexagon punches and any bit of “scrap” cardstock I could find to create the background for the card on the right. To cards with the same greetings, but totally different looks!


I hope you enjoyed this project, and all of the projects this month, and they gave you some ideas of what you can do with the July Kits from Tres Jolie!

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!


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!


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


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!


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!


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!

Forest Key (a Mixed Media ATC)


 I don’t know if I should say I created these for the June Mixed Media Place challenge, but will be swapping them, or if it would be more accurate to say the June Mixed Media Place challenge helped me put together these ATCs for the “Favorite Product and/or Technique” category of the swap over at! They both helped each other along in the end!

I love the mood board this month over at Mixed Media Place. The wonderful colors of the forest really spoke to me! I’m also participating in the ATC swap over at, hosted by Marci (you can find her here and here), and was still “needing” to make my “Favorite Product and/or Technique” batch! I have a little of both on these cards! I love, love, LOVE Finnabair’s products by Prima, and I adore using her waxes, but I also love mica powders (in this case I used Lindy’s Magical Shakers), and Tim Holtz was my first designer love (I’ve been collecting Tim Holtz since shortly after I first started scrapbooking!).

(Below you can find a process video, more photos, & a product list.)

The Mixed Media Place June Mood Board for the June challenge.

Process Video:

I think one of my favorite things about ATCs is they help me use up scraps & partial packages, plus I find them to be very freeing, even I can only fit so much on a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ surface!
With these ATCs I didn’t cut into any new cardstock or open any new packages! In fact I finished off one of the Prima packages & the Little Birdie package in addition to getting rid of a teeny tiny bit of my vast scrap collection! (Okay, maybe not vast…it could be worse I suppose!)
Also, to make projects go faster, when I have some spare time I will make up batches of pieces from my various moulds. I can’t say I have an absolute preference of which resin to use, both of the ones used to make these keys have a purpose. Amazing Cast Resin sets up F.A.S.T!! And I mean you better have a plan of action and work in small batches! This is great when I don’t have the time to wait for the Art ‘N Glow resin to set. However, I love the Art ‘N Glow because it mixes up thinner, and I have a work time of 45 minutes! The thinner is great for the smaller moulds I have, and the longer time is better because I can pour slow and sure! (It does, however, have a 24 hour cure time.)
**Note: I’d wear gloves. The Amazing Cast Resin gets real hot, real fast (it’s best not to ask why I know this so well!). Gloves will help you peel that off quick! The Art ‘N Glow is just practically impossible to wash off with soap and water. It’s very sticky! (Again, don’t ask! LOL)

    Christmas Tag!

    The tag I made for the “Glorious Holiday Tag Swap!” hosted by Donna (bonprof) over at!

    I sprayed the canvas, texture pasted the canvas, sprayed it some more, and added some glitter paste in select spots! (Good news, I finally got a webcam, someday I hope to make videos…it is just so much easier than typing it all out! I assume anyhow, at least I’ll be able to say “Here, watch this!” LOL)
    I wrapped the gold wire around a tape roll (packing tape size) to make the wreath base, then just started sticking the pine needle die cuts around it. The ornaments are from ReneaBouquets (link in product list), as is the glitter I used to “fill in” some of the areas of them. I embossed them with Red Geranium Embossing Powder (Ranger) and added a light coat of Rose Gold Metallique Wax (Prima). I did the same to the Merry Christmas.

    My first tea cup art, just in time for Christmas!

    Handle side, side view! This was a learning experience for me, and I learned that I need more Mod Podge to hold down the pieces against the strain of the Crackle Paint! You can also se some of the beautiful Shard Glitter Glass & Microbeads I added to the spoon!

    The other side of the cup. Here I added some of the Microbeads to the pine cone & some Shard Glitter Glass & Microbeads just under the edge of the pine cone. Plus, in the center of the poinsettias are some more Microbeads.

    A closer look at the spoon.

    A closer look at the pine cone!

    One of the poinsettias that has the Microbeads for the center.

    One of the posies I made using the tutorial found at Live The Dream ….

    A closer look at the bottom with the second posie I made.
