Vintage Artistry Coral Altered File Folder

Hello everyone! Today I am up on the blog to share with you this fun project that I created for this week using the September Card, Tags, & More Kit. This collection comes with the beautiful collection of papers from 49 & Market, Vintage Artistry Coral. Aside from the paper, I was anxious to use the cut out sheets that came with it. All that ephemera was absolutely beautiful! That is where I got the idea for an altered manila file folder. I hadn’t made one like this before but I was truly inspired by a very talented crafter that always has been an inspiration to me. Her name is Jenifer Stephens, her YouTube channel is A Trace Of Sparkle. Here is what I created with this amazing kit from Tres Jolie Kits!

I absolutely love how this turned out! There are many different ways that you can create these manila folders. I actually used 2.5 folders for this project. Since they weren’t coffee nor tea dyed I decided I would do a quick version of it so using Tim Holtz Distress Stain Ground Espresso , a sponge brush and a spray water bottle. I really love how it turned out! Here are some samples of this.

So this idea above works fast if you don’t have any folders, papers. ephemera, laces , etc coffee/tea dyed and you want to make something fast. I hope that you will give this a try and if you do make sure you share with us what you created over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe

If you are undecided or just saw this kit now, you have to purchase this one! I can promise you that you will NOT be disappointed at all! It truly is amazing and there are so many projects you can create with it! I also used the Darice thin metal die that was included in this kit that inspired the front page of this project. Here is a video of the entire project.

Well friends I hope that you like what I have created for this week using this gorgeous kit! There is still time to get your Cards, Tags, & More kit or there are two other kits, the Scrapbook Kit and Mixed media kit that you can purchase as well. I will be back actually next week with a project using the Scrapbook kit! Until then I hope you check in daily to see the rest of the design team share their beautiful creations!! See ya next week! XOXO

Hugs,

Jeanne

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a masculine layout created with the September 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Scrapboys are amazing. I’m really loving with this kit. Masculine layouts are becoming my thing.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the September mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I covered the sheet in clear gesso to prep it for the stenciling and misting I did. Here you can see where I used just the leftover modeling paste on the stencil to create this light design. The stenciling is heavier in other places.

Here you can see more of the stenciling and misting. You can also see the chipboard that I used a textured embossing powder on. There are also a few layers under the photo from papers in the kit. I did a bit of fussy cutting on the pipe frame from one of the sheets.

More layers, chipboard (swirls were cut from gear border) and flowers from the kit. Another fussy cut frame from the papers.

“Vintage Artistry Coral” 3×3 Shabby Notecards

Hello crafty friends! I’m back this month with some beautiful collections again from Tres Jolie Kits! The project I picked to do as my first project were these cute and pretty easy 3×3 notecards. I used the September Cards, Tags, & More Kit to create these.

I began by cutting a few sheets of the 8.5 X 11 white card stock that was included in the kit into 3 X 6 pieces , once you have cut the amount of card bases you are going to want to make then you take your score board & bone folder or score tool and score your base at the 3in mark . Which of course is the center where you will be making your fold.

     

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

   

 

Once you have all of  your card bases folded in half, set them aside . Now you can pick out the papers from the 49 & Market Vintage Artistry Collection(Coral). Once you have chosen the papers you might like to use for your cards. I then cut them about 1/8 inch shorter than the size of the base. After finishing up with those papers, I took my Prima Marketing Distress Tool , you are welcome to use any distress tool or even a pair of scissors to distress the edges of the design paper or you can also choose to leave them without distressing. That is completely your choice. I myself love how it looks a little more shabby with the edges distressed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then adhered the distressed papers onto the folded base. As a side note, I normally like to add colored card stock to the inside of the card, usually the color of the design paper, which in this case had a soft coral color. I add this so you can write down your inside message. I didn’t have any without the texture that would coordinate it so I ended up using American Crafts Textured card stock. But since you won’t be able to actually write on this kind of paper I cut some of the left over white card stock that I used for the base.

I then had to finish up the front so I added some pieces of the 49 & market Vintage Artistry Coral Washi Tape from the kit onto the cards in different directions. I also decided I would add some stenciling to these cute cards . On half of the cards I mixed up some DecoArt Deco Media Crackle Paste with some of the Finnibair Textured Powder from a previous Tres Jolie Kit. I applied it with a spatula onto a Prima Marketing Doily Stencil.

For the other half of the cards I mixed up the same texture/crackle mix and then added some Prima Marketing Color Bloom Spray in Ginger Coral color, although it turned out more pink than I wanted , it still added a little color to the lighter design paper that had a lighter background on it. For these cards I applied the mixture onto the Feather Stencil from Brutus Monroe .  I then used my heat tool to dry them as well as allowing more of the crackles to come thru. They are more noticeable on the ones with the white. I also used the same Crackle Paste on the chipboard butterflies that came with the kit. I did that on half of the cards and for the other half I used some of the butterflies that were in the paper collection perforated sheet. Lastly I added some sentiments from the Finnabair Art Daily Planner Sentiment Booklet and added some snippets of lace on half of them!

There are a variety of projects that you can create with this kit. I just decided that I would create these note cards since I like to add them to swaps , happy mail, or just to say “Hello”! I hope that you enjoyed what I created for my first project using this month’s kit. Keep checking in daily for more projects from my wonderfully talented team mates!! I know you will have lots of great inspiration and I do hope that you will join in this month’s mood board challenge! You can share what you create over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe, there is an album where your entries go in. So try it out! Well I’ll see ya all next Friday with another project!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Tres Jolie Kit Club – August 2020 Mixed Media Kit – Pen/Pencil/Paintbrush Holders

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

Today I’m bring you my third mixed media project of the month using items from this month’s Mixed Media kit. I decided to add a bit of decoration to my craft room by turning two cans into pen-pencil-paintbrush holders.

 

My new paintbrush holders went together quickly and easily; most of the time I spent on these was dry time! Check out my video below to see how I did it all.


Video:


I, carefully, glued the mould pieces to my cans immediately after forming them (using some E6000) to make sure they were molded to the curve of the can.

I grabbed up some crackle paint (from a previous Tres Jolie kit) and gave everything a nice coating. I didn’t add mould pieces all the way around my cans because, in my case, they are going to be against a wall, so I didn’t think it was necessary, but you can decorate your cans however works best for your style!

 

I sprayed the three Distress Oxide Sprays on the cans, and after they were dry I used some Krylon Workable Fixatif before adding the Liquid Acrylic Paint and using the Lindy’s Magical Powder on the mould pieces.

As I mentioned in the video, I did a final seal on my cans using some Mod Podge Matte Acrylic Sealer, and I have since ran my cans under water and “scrubbed” them with my hands. I am happy to report that nothing came off!

I hope you enjoyed this project and it gave you an idea of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media kit! Stay Crafty, friends!

Mini Tag Books

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing these adorable mini tag books I created using the August Cards, Tags, & More kit. I had the two sheets left from the beautiful papers from Craft O’Clock so thought they would look super cute as mini books you are able to journal in.

This project came together pretty fast , even if you don’t have this exact collection , you can create something similar by making your own tags, using any ephemera you have on hand or are able to print out some as well as sentiments . I used some sticker sentiments from the Finnabair Sentiments Sticker Book from another past Tres Jolie kit.

On one of the sets, I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves around all of the edges of my tags. I used small pop foam dots on the ephemera I added to the tags. For the sentiments, I used some colored/white card stock to back them onto. I also cut some white card stock to add to the back of the tags to add small photos or just use them to journal on.

This paper collection from Craft O’Clock was very beautiful and considering I wasn’t much for purple, I truly loved creating using this month’s Card, Tags, & More kit. I hope that you all use up every last piece of your papers. Even using scraps , you can come up with some great gift ideas.  I thought also of maybe altering an altoid tin to maybe store these tags books in.

 

The last thing I did was add some of the beautiful seam binding from the kit on one of the tag books and added some twine on the other one. I also added some of the pearls & bling from the kit. *Note: I didn’t post every single photo on here since they would be too many since I used some of the more narrow tags as well. I did share the main photos though. I hope that you like my project this week. Don’t forget there is still time to join in this month’s sketch challenge going on on the Tres Jolie facebook group. Join in you just might win!!

I will see ya all next time!! Hugs, Jeanne

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

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

This week I am bringing you a layout I created for this month’s 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!


August 2020 Tres Jolie Sketch:

DSC_0015-FRAMED DSC_0036-FRAMED

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!

In addition to items from this month’s Scrapbooking Kit (*from previous Tres Jolie kits), I used: Prima/Ingvild Bolme Quick Dry Fluid Chalk Ink *“Faded Jeans” and *“Tin Can,” Art Anthology 6×9 Stencil “Lotus,” The Crafters Workshop Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste, Liquitex Matte Super Heavy Gel, Art Glitter Glue

“This Beautiful Life” August Sketch Challenge Layout

Hello everyone! This week I am back with my project for this month’s sketch challenge for Tres Jolie kits. I originally had created a different layout using one of the beautiful papers from the August Scrapbook Kit which were from AB Studios Diva collection. But I then decided to create a different layout using two other papers only because one of our other designers from our team Rae used the same papers and created a stunning layout so I decided I would just create a different layout using some of the other beautiful papers. Great minds think a like when you have team members with the same ideas for projects *giggle giggle*.

This layout was fairly easy to create. When I first began crafting I always found making layouts to be intimidating even though the same process is used when creating a handmade card. So when I came across these challenges based on a “sketch”, I was able to catch on fairly quick.  So if you are like I was or if you just need a quick idea for a layout, these sketch challenges and mood board challenges make it that much easier to create something beautiful in the process.

I began by  taking some of the Lindy’s Magicals in Bayou Boogie Gold and adding some water to them, and just go long the edges of the papers with a small brush. I also did the same process along the edges of another of the beautiful papers from the kit that I trimmed a little smaller.

I used  the same mixture of magicals and water to the chipboard pieces that I selected for this layout such as the Dusty Attic Ornate Pendant chipboard pieces and the skeleton keys. I set those aside and started on the layout by adhering the smaller design paper that I had cut and used magicals alongside the edges as well.

Once I that was adhered I began by adhering the chipboard with the magicials onto the page following the sketch provided for this month. I then cut and distressed a couple of tags from the cut out page from the collection. I added some gold ribbon from my stash to them.

I added my photo featuring my 4 children whom are my world! I printed it black/white on Matte Photo Paper and used some chipboard to prop it up a little and then adhering one of the 49 & Market stitched frames from a previous kit onto my photo. I then was able to adhere the flowers and ephemera pieces onto the layout. I adhered a decorative strip also to the bottom of the smaller piece of paper. I made a small flower cluster on the right hand top corner and added a resin piece that came in the kit. I loved the sentiment that came in the ephemera kit “This Beautiful Life” so I decided to add that title to my layout.

 

I do hope that you will enter this sketch challenge this month! You can use any kit or supplies you have to join this challenge. If you do make sure you share with us on the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe. This way you have a chance to win something great from Tres Jolie kits! Stay tuned for more projects coming this month from the rest of the Tres Jolie Design Team Members. I myself will be back next week with another project! So stay tuned!!

Jeanne

Tres Jolie Kit Club–August Mixed Media Kit–Altered Paintbrush

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

This week I have used items from the August Mixed Media kit, along with items from my stash, to create this altered paintbrush.

DSC_0106-FRAMED

I used the Prima Modeling Material with the Finnabair Mould to create the bust and flourishes, which I “painted” with the Lindy’s “Bayou Boogie Gold” Magical Powder, and after I prepared my paintbrush I used the Distress Oxide Sprays to add the background color. Check out my process video to see how everything came together!



DSC_0113-FRAMED DSC_0126-FRAMED

I used some Prima/Finnabair Crackle texture Paste on my background (from my stash) with a couple of stencils I have collected from previous Tres Jolie kits! After the paste had dried I used the three Distress Oxide Sprays from this month’s kit to give the background some color. Plus, I finished off two packs of flowers, both of which I had been hoarding from previous Tres Jolie kits.

DSC_0109-FRAMED DSC_0108-FRAMED

I love the mould that came in the kit this month, and I especially love that it is an item I will be able to keep in my stash to use over and over again! Some items, like the glitter I sprinkled about from a previous Tres Jolie kit, will (eventually) run out, but that mould will be in my stash forever!

DSC_0105-FRAMED

I hope you enjoyed this altered paintbrush and I hope it gave you some ideas of what can be done with items from this month’s Mixed Media kit! Stay crafty!

“Blessed” Ringed Mini Album

Hello crafty friends!! Today I’m sharing the first project I created using the August Card, Tags, & More kit. This kit came with some beautiful papers, cut outs & my favorite was the gold doilies. The entire kit was beautifully put together and very easy to put together.

 

If you purchased this kit and have never created a ringed mini album, the one thing I can tell you is that this is the easiest kind of mini album that you can create. I think these are fun to make for any level but most definitely for beginners, this is what I would go with.

Here is the process video of how I created mine. I hope you can get an idea of what I did , it honestly is very easy. Everything that Kim put in this kit makes it that easy. Maybe the only thing that took any kind of work was cutting the chipboard she provided to size,  which you can cut yours to any size you would like. Mine measures 8 1/2 X 8 1/2.

I hope that you like what I came up with this month. If you purchased this kit, please don’t forget to share with us your final project on the Facebook page Tres Jolie Kit Club . Also don’t forget to join in this month’s sketch challenge!

I’ll be back next week with my next project. See Ya then….

Hugs,

Jeanne
