Welcoming a new Designer

Hi everyone, Kim here. Join me today in welcoming a new designer to our team. Although you have seen some of her designs, she is officially starting with the July kits. Without further ado, I introduce to you…

Cristina Cunningham

Hi, I’m Cristina. I live in NY and am a mom of two 20-somethings and a new grandma to my sweet
Andrew. I’ve been crafting in one way or another since college, but discovered scrapbooking when my oldest was born and my love for papercrafts grew from there. My style is very shabby and feminine. My favorite projects revolve around memory keeping, but I also enjoy making junk journals, cards and altered projects. In my spare time you can find me at the beach catching a cool sunset or at the opera. I’m a former classical pianist and still enjoy going to a concert whenever I can.

Let’s give Cris a warm welcome. I am sure you will love seeing what she creates using our kits. So make sure you are subscribed to our blog, social media platforms and Youtube channel.

Thanks for stopping by!

Timeless Tag/Notecard Folio Set

Hello crafty friends! Today I am back to share another project using the beautiful Card, Tags, & More! I wanted to focus today on using the Finnabair background stamp that came in the kit and of course a few of the embellishments I had left from it as well!!

I absolutely love small stamps because you can incorporate them in larger projects such as layouts, art journaling, etc. But this one I immediately got an idea to create this super cute folio containing 3×3 note cards/envelopes & tags. I had created this a while back when I first started crafting and found that the crafter that I followed the simple tutorial on YouTube has so many other tutorials, ideas that I have gotten my inspiration from since finding her. Here is the link to her channel.

The paper I used for this project is one that I had in my hoard and it is an older Prima collection Time Travelers collection. It’s such a beautiful collection and I knew it would be perfect for this project!

I used some of the Stamperia Rice Papers that I had left from the first 2 projects that I previously used them on. I used some a couple of the Prima Sunrise Sunset Mini Numbers as well.


Other items from the kit that I ended up adding was some of the Train tickets from the kit, those were added to the outside of the mini envelopes. I then cut up some strips from the Tim Holtz Film Roll from the kit and adhered them on the front and outside and inner spine.







As you can see in my photos, I stamped the Prima background stamp from the kit on the front of the 3×3 notecards, I used Ranger embossing ink , embossing powders from Lindy’s Stamp gang.

You might notice I also used some white and clear embossing powders from Crafter’s Companion. I like the way the image from the Prima Marketing stamp turned out looking using those two as well.

I added some tags that came from the paper collection that I used. I added some black cotton lace throughout the inner area and on the tags. I adhered a chipboard piece from the collection with some colored seam binding to wrap around the folio and tie on front.









I hope that you will give this easy to follow tutorial a try! These make super cute gifts , swap idea, happy mail creations, etc. I’m anxious to see what you all created with this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie!! I will be back with my next project next week as I created something fun for this month’s Monthly challenge in which I hope you will join in!!

Altered Wooden Box with Cards, Tags & Address Book/Journal

Hello crafty friends!!! This month I’m back with a super adorable project that I created using the Tres Jolie Scrapbook Kit  .  This project is for this months Mood Board Challenge. I decided to alter a wooden box. This box measures 8×8. I do plan to add more cards, envelopes, & tags. I just wanted to create just a few to show something and not an empty box haha!!






In this project I was inspired by Frank Garcia a designer for Prima Marketing. He did a similar design for a mini album parcel that I subscribe to. I just added all of the flowers and other small elements.  I took the wooden box that came with this kit, note these weren’t the papers for that parcel.


I really enjoyed altering this box. I made some 3×3 cards with envelopes , tags that I had in my stash, I added some papers from the collection to them, they came with some twine so I added that to the box, I also altered a small hardcover notepad. I couldn’t find a smaller notepad at the time and of course after I altered this one I came across smaller ones that I had in my hoard. No worries this one came out nice. This can be used as an address book or just a journal.


I do hope that you were inspired to create something like this!! If you would like to see a tutorial on this please check out my blog @ Jeannie In A Bottle Blog  These sorts of projects make great gifts for the holidays, birthdays, keepsakes, etc. I do hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family as I will do with mine, although my daughter and her family will be spending it with her other family but my sons will be here and I’m not too upset cuz I get to have her for Christmas . Talk to you all soon ~Hugs~ Jeanne
