Tres Jolie Kit Club – July 2020 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I’m bringing you the junk journal I created using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit. I had such a blast making this journal, and even though I didn’t originally intend to kill the kit, as I kept going it became a personal challenge to see if I could get everything in!

For the video, I put the flip-through in at the beginning, then followed it up with the process. I hope you take a peek at it and enjoy it! Below the video, I have added a few photos of the finished journal.

I used the new Tim Holtz color, “Speckled Egg,” throughout the journal. It went beautifully with the Stamperia papers that came in this month’s kit. For the resin pieces, I used some of the “Speckled Egg” oxide and embossing glaze, and some “Gathered Twig” Distress Crayon.

I pieced together the smaller “left-over” pieces to cover the “manila” colored tags that came in the kit and added some string from my stash.

I cut out the ATC sized cards from the paper and attached them to one side of the popcorn bag that came in my kit! (Your bag may be different) I turned the two music prints into envelopes and added them in, and peeking out of this one is a little notebook I made from the largest left-over piece I had and some standard notebook paper.

The final page and inside of the back cover, which contains a flip out.

I hope you enjoyed this project and had a chance to see my process video, most of it is sped up, but I do stop to explain in quite a few areas! Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie!

Monday monthly wrap-up

Hey everyone, Kim here. since we are in the last week of the month, we are going to do a monthly wrap -up and MAYBE some sneaks for next month.

If you haven’t had internet access for the last month and missed all our social media post, I’ll start off by showing you the July kits.

This is the scrapbook kit (there are still a few available), it was filled with beautiful papers from Srapboys. The DT did an amazing job creating with this kit.

Here are some examples:

Can you believe Cris created that stunning tag flip book with just leftover scraps?

Next up is the Cards, Tags and more kit. I love this kit because each month it’s a surprise. For July we had a junk journal.

Look at these journals:

I created this textured cover for my journal.

 

Lastly, but definitely not least is the Mixed Media kit. The fun thing about this kit is there is always a project to use your mediums on right out of the box.  So not only do you get to build your mediums stash, you get to create cool projects.

Here is the kit:

Let’s look at some projects:

There is also our monthly challenge. You still have time to enter if you haven’t. The challenge is open to everyone and there is always a great prize for the winner.

Tres Jolie Kit Club-July 2020 Moodboard-Scrapbooking Kit

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I’m bringing you a rather thick junk journal I created using the papers, frames, tag, and resin pieces that came in this month’s scrapbooking kit.

DSC_0004-FRAMED

I was inspired by Wendy’s Journal Adventure’s “The Caring Gardner Botanical Journal.” I don’t even know what I was looking for when I came across the video, but I loved how the first and last signatures were dedicated to pockets and flip-outs with the middle signatures dedicated to the pages to write on; I had always seen journals with the pocket and flip-out pages intermingled with the writing pages. I also loved the corrugated cardboard she used on the inside covers, which reminded me I had some KaiserCraft Corrugated Sheets from the October 2019 Tres Jolie Scrapbooking Kit. Check out a few photos, found below the flip-through video, to see how some of the pages are laid out.

“Just Imagine” Mini Junk Journal

Hello again crafty friends!! Well July is already here and I can’t believe how quick the months seem to by going by! I hope that everyone is doing well and staying home and keeping yourselves safe! Well this month I am excited to share the project that I have been looking forward to creating for some time now. As most of you might that this months kit for the Cards, Tags, & More kit is a mini junk journal kit that I helped Kim put together….just helped a little bit! I loved it! Thanks Kim!! Anyhow on to my project!!

 

I began by cutting the papers from the 8X8 Stamperia “Imagine” paper pad from the kit. I cut the papers to the sizes of canvas pages and as I was creating , I did end up using a couple papers from a vintage stash I had cut and of course I also used some of the music sheets from the kit. I also did some light stitching on some of the pages not all because I am fairly new at sewing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once I finished adhering the paper on the pages, I began making my pockets which included some of the music sheets from the kit, I used lace from the kit & on the last page I used on of the ephemera cards from the kit. I created some tuck spots using the larger tickets from the Tim Holtz Tickets included in the kit, I used the smaller ones on some of the coffee/tea dyed journaling papers (as seen in the above right photo & the bottom left photo the larger ticket). I also did some stamping on the journaling papers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will also notice on one of the pages I added the envelope onto the page and added the bingo card inside as a journaling spot and adhered one of the music flares onto the envelope. This was the only flip page I created on this album.

 

 

I cut out the tiny tags from one of the 8X8 sheets which I absolutely love tiny tags! I did add some in the pockets & tuck spots but the rest I made a quick tiny tag album adhering them with some twine. I also created a small album from some of the cut outs that to me looked like pages from a book, I binded them with the same twine. I used a few of the milk caps and a lot of the ephemera. To be honest I had to stop myself from trying to use up every last piece of supplies from the kit because I started to notice it was getting too chunky!

I have added a short video to share the entire album but I did want to add that on the cover I used the closure that came with the album, I cut it to fit my album and had adhered it before adding my cover and back page. I also fussy cut one of the beautiful mini art dresses that were printed on one of the pages of the paper pad from the kit. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and I adhered it with some foam tape, I adhered the Gothic Frame and then added this dress. I had cut also some of the beautiful sentiments that were throughout the papers and chose one for the title of my mini junk journal which read ” The creation of beauty is Art”! Lastly I had already added a different lace on the cover but then last week when I went to my doctor appointment my hubby took me over to one of my favorite consignment stores which I was surprised was open, and found some vintage laces so I came home and added one of these instead! I hope u like how it looks!

Well crafty friends, I sure do hope that you liked this mini junk journal that almost doesn’t look too mini by the size lol but I sure loved creating this small piece of art using this fun kit!! So if you haven’t purchased yours yet , head over to the Tres Jolie website before they sell out!! I’ll be back on Friday with another fun project using the July Scrapbook kit!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Shabby Little Mini Book

Happy Wednesday y’all!!

Now y’all know I like to mix things up a bit!  LOL!  I normally get the mixed media kit but this month I got both the mixed media kit and the scrapbook kit, so this little mini is made with this month’s scrapbook kit.

When I opened up that scrapbook kit and saw those cute stitched frames by 49 & Market I knew I was going to be making this mini!  And the cardstock by AB Studio was just perfectly designed to make these little pages…these pages were all cut from one sheet of cardstock!

I knew they would be perfect to frame up those lovely designs on the AB Studio cardstock!  For this I just cut the cardstock to fit the frames and glued them to the back side of the frames.  I then cut a small strip of scrap card stock and taped it to the back left of each “page” to help form more of an area that could but used as a spine.  More on how I used that additional edge in a bit.

Next I turned my attention to the cover, I added a part of the chipboard chain and gears.  I just cut a portion of the design and I painted it with some of the white crackle paste I had sitting on my desk from the mixed media kit.  Although it didn’t really crackle since I wan’t using it in the way crackle paste should be used to crackle properly, I do like how it looks.  You could absolutely just use whatever white paint you have.  I also inked it with a brown ink pad along the edges before glueing it down.

Here you can see that additional scrap cardstock I used to create a bit of a spine.  I used my standard size hole punch to punch two holes in it (all the way through each sheet) and ran the lace through to form the binding of the book, tying it in the front of the book.

I used the same white crackle paste from the mixed media kit to paint the Darice flowers and sprinkled some gold glitter from one of my previous kits on them.  I also tucked on the the Tim Holtz Timepiece watch faces in there as well after giving it a quick wipe with some white paint.

As you can see the book is not filled just yet, I can’t decide how I want to use it but I couldn’t let the opportunity pass to create it and now it’s made and ready to fill!  It will be a great gift or quick art journal when the mood strikes me!

Thanks for stoping by today!

Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2020 Moodboard– “Emerald Queen” Junk Journal

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I have an example project, a junk journal, for this months moodboard challenge!

DSC_0057-FRAMED

I was in love with the “Emerald Queen” line by AB Studio that came in this months scrapbooking kit as soon as I saw the photos! And when I saw the books on the moodboard, I knew I’d be making a junk journal! And it was serendipitous that the green fabric image (above the clocks) fit with some sari silk I had already prepared for use! Below the moodboard image I have two video links, one is a flip-through of the completed journal and the other is a process video.

On the spine I let some of the fibers from The Paper Studio peek through the zipper, then added a Prima Vintage Trinket! I added some “Sage” Embossing Powder by Ranger to the chipboard from the kit and added it to the layers on my cover.

DSC_0062-FRAMED

Here you can see the many various laces I used along the edges of the pages!

DSC_0058-FRAMED DSC_0059-FRAMED

I layered some scraps of fabric, lace, and a zipper from an old jacket with items from this months kit on the cover, “holding” them in place with clips from my stash!

The band I used to hold the junk journal closed is a headband! I found packages of them on clearance one time and it suddenly dawned on me that they would be great for junk journals!

Mixed Media Journal Page – The Weird Girl

Today I’m sharing an art journal page that I’ve been wanting to attempt.  Last month when I requested to have both the Mixed Media kit and the Scrapbooking kit I didn’t realize I’d have all these glorious flowers so when this package arrived with all this fabulousness I could not help myself so out it came!

This page is really the result of both the mixed media and the scrapbook kit, although you could do it with just the mixed media kit with some alterations and additions from your stash I’m sure…But ya’ll…those beautiful green flowers from the Scrapbook kit were begging to be on this page so I just had to include them!  LOL

I started by using a sheet from a vintage short hand instructional book and used the “13 Arts” Gel Medium to adhere it to my journal page.    Apply the gel medium with a nice size brush fairly generously and evenly, taking care to smooth out any bumps and wrinkles.

Once dried I used a rubber stamp and some permanent ink to stamp a lady’s face as my base to build upon.  If you are a good sketch artist (which I am not), you could just draw your lady’s face.

Next I just went nuts glueing my “49 & Market” flowers from both the mixed media kit as well as the scrapbooking kit on to the page forming the lady’s hair.  I just used hot glue because I knew it would make a good bond.  I’m sure there is a better and more appropriate art or mixed media adhesive to use for this but this is what I know so this is what I stuck with so this guys wouldn’t go anywhere.

I then used a permanent marker to draw a rough body shape for my lady and I glued on a few of the flowers as her buttons.  I went back and applied a bit of the olive green “13 Arts” acrylic paint to her body to make her stand out a bit more.

Finally I added a little rub of the Prima metallic gold wax from last month’s Mix Media kit to all the edges of the vintage paper.

Oh and I tucked in one of the Prima metal butterflies in her hair as her little hair accessory.

The title is a sticker by Tim Holtz from my stash and it’s all done on one of my pages for my Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Journal.

This is the complete Mixed Media kit, it’s one of my faves!  If you are looking for a great kit packed with product to keep you busy while you are social distancing, this is it!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-November Mood Board

DSC_0001-FRAMED

For me a “scrapbooking kit” doesn’t necessarily mean I’m going to be making scrapbook pages! Sometimes I just can’t resist using (almost) everything up in one project, like the junk journal I made for this month mood board!
