I work full time as a night shift Emergency Nurse in a trauma center, otherwise I am a little bit of A Mixed Media Artist, Crafter, Scrapper, Gardener, Hosta Connoisseur and a mother all wrapped into one fun loving, energetic type A personality.
I started my creative journey in the world of mixed media back in 2014, and continue to expand and explore techniques, products and various styles and modalities of art. I am currently designing for a variety of companies 
 
I have had the pleasure of doing Facebook Lives for various companies and have enjoy doing them. I hold local class’s here in my home town for friends and family. I have also had the opputunity to teach else where in the country.  I am looking forward to this next creative adventure.

Introducing Phyllis

Hello Crafty Friends!  My name is Phyllis,  I live in Southern Arizona~Yes in this crazy heat!  LOL!!!  My husband and I have 3 Amazing kids!  I truly feel honored and blessed to be a stay at home mom.

My journey with papercrafting started with creating simple cards!  About a year later I started creating layouts and albums.  The past 3-4 years I’ve really enjoyed Mixed Media projects.  I’m not sure what my style is but I am a Happy camper when I can add lots of layers and texture to my projects!

Here is a sneak peek of one of my projects!  Stay tuned there will be a process video for this layout!

Tres Jolie kits are beautiful and easy to create with!  Get your creative juices started with grabbing a kit!

Be sure to stick around  to meet the rest of the designers!

Thank you again Kim for having me as one of your Guest Designers!  Good luck with your new adventure in the crafing world!

Happy Creating!!!

Introducing Kim

Hi everyone,

First let me welcome you all to Tres Jolie Kit Club. I’m Kim the owner and sometimes designer around here.

I’m so excited to be bringing you these kits. They have been a labor of love. A love of all things scrapbooking/crafting. I have created kits filled with all the latest products that are available. They are truly kits that I would love to receive each month. Just hang on another week for the reveal. If you have already subscribed, you kit will be going out later this week.

Let’s answer the question, who am I?

I live in the Midwest with my husband. We don’t have any children and we love to travel. We have both recently retired from Public Service and can now travel even more.

I began scrapbooking in 2001 after the death of my mother. I wanted to preserve all those memories in one place and I haven’t looked back. Currently, my scrapbooking consists of our travels, family history, current events with friends and family and lots of crazy selfies with the husband.

My style? That’s a good question. I love the romantic, shabby chic style, but I don’t always adhere to that. I like to mix it up with mediums and get my hands dirty too. One thing that you will always find on my layouts, flowers and chipboard.

How about a sneak peek? Here you go:

Make sure you come back tomorrow and meet more of the team. We will be introducing everyone all week long.

Don’t forget, we still have some subscription available. Those that subscribe before June 1st are eligible to win this:

That’s the full 12×12 paper pad of the Havana line from Prima. Along with coordinating embellishments. It will ship with the July 1st kit. So don’t miss out, head on over to our subscribe page and click that button.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

 

Design Team Introductions!

Hi, there!

First off, I just want to say that Kim, the owner of Tres Jolie Kits has put together some amazing kits that are filled with MANY beautiful things, and if you love gorgeous, elegant papers and embellishments, you will love these kits! We are so excited for our first reveal, June 1st! This week we are introducing our designers and guest designers, so be sure to check the blog every day this week so you can see who we are, and some sneak peeks of the projects we are working on.

 So, I’ll kick off the introductions: My name is Rae and I live in Las Vegas, Nevada with my family- husband, three kids, and cat. I used to be a high school English teacher, but now I work in the pharmaceutical science industry as an editor, and I get to do that from home!

Scrapbooking has been a huge part of my life for about 10 years now- I enjoy being creative and making pretty things.  I love to do layouts and altered projects. My favorite embellishment is FLOWERS, so I put them on 99% of my projects, even my masculine layouts. I don’t know how you would describe my style, but I love a sophisticated look with many small details! Here’s a sneak peek of a project that I have made with the June scrapbook kit that I think captures my style:

Be sure to check the blog tomorrow so you can meet another member of our design team and see another sneak peek of what you can buy in June!

Behind the Scenes

Good afternoon everyone, things are coming along well behind the scenes at Tres Jolie. So today I thought I would give you all a peek behind the curtain, so to speak.

Just this morning, I got the last item in for the June kit. I’ll be packing the kits for the DT to go out tomorrow. They will be working the month of May to be ready for our June 1st reveal. This is what Tres Jolie central looks like right now.

If you look closely, you can see sneaks of items for the June kits. Here’s another hint, there are items for the July kit hidden in there as well. That’s right, the July kit has been planned and ordered.

How about a few more looks?

Welcome to Tres Jolie Kit Club

Hi everyone, welcome to Tres Jolie. We are a new monthly kit club and we are so excited to have you joining us. Each month we will have 3 new kits featuring the best we can find in the crafting community.

So let me tell you a bit about our kits and what makes them different from the other kit clubs.

First is our scrapbook kit, it will be contain anywhere from 10-12 sheets of shabby chic, vintage romantic style patterned papers. These papers are going to be from the top companies, both local and international. Add to that embellishments selected to perfectly compliment those papers. That will include flowers, chipboard, metal, resin, lace or whatever else we can find. Doesn’t that all sound yummy?

Next up we have our cards, tags and more kit. That’s right a kit specifically for that make cards and tags. This kit will alternate between cardstock or tags as the base. It will always include patterned paper and embellishments to build upon that base. What are Cards and tags without flowers, bling, stamps and ink. Who knows, we may even slip in a die (think Julie Nutting dolls) one month. What do you say card makers?

Last, but definitely not least is the mixed media kit. It’s kinda like mixed media with a project. Don’t you hate getting a bunch of mixed media and nothing to try it out on? Not with this kit. It comes with the mediums and a project to use them on. That’s right, you get to get in there and get your hands dirty the minute you finish opening this kit.

The other thing that’s different about our kit club is our dedication to our subscribers. There will be “perks” that as a subscriber only you will be privy too. Sometimes, there may even be a little something extra in your kit.

Our kits will begin shipping in May. For all the details on how to subscribe and shipping please click on the subscribe tab at the top of the page. Also visit the FAQ page for any other questions. If you still can’t find the answer, please email me at Kim@tresjoliekits.com

I know this has been a very wordy post, so I will leave you with a preview of our first kit.
