Mood Board Challenge Book Card

Hello crafty peeps!! This week I’m excited to share with u this Book Card that I created for this month’s Mood Challenge! I absolutely love love this  from Tres Jolie! I decided to create this simple book card.

 

 

 

I had made one of these a few years ago following a tutorial on YouTube. 

I used a thick white American Crafts card stock for my base and then used one of the sheets from the scrapbook kit. I used some of the flowers as well.

 

I used a piece of ephemera from my stash and a super cute vintage girl photo that was given to me by a crafty friend!  I then fussy cut a flower from one of the 12×12 sheets that had a variety of color and size of flowers on it. Lastly I added a piece of cotton ivory lace around the inside border of the card.

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that you will check out this tutorial and give it a try. These make such beautiful and fun gifts!! I look forward to seeing what everyone has created for this month’s Mood Board Challenge! Until next month crafty friends!

 

HUGS,

Tres Jolie Kit Club-February 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Heart Explosion Box!

Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog! For my second project this month I have a Heart Explosion Box, just in time for Valentine’s Day! I used the Creative Embellishments chipboard from the Cards, Tags, & More Kit with my mediums from the Mixed Media Kit! I just loved how the hearts already looked like they were floating away! But the same effect could easily be done with the “Follow Your Heart” chipboard in the Mixed Media Kit!

Everything here except the box and the sisal (and the glues!) came from a Tres Jolie Kit! Either this month or previous months!

Check out how I did it all in my video:

For the solid parts of the hearts I used some crackle paint and then the two Sparks from this months kit. On the outline, I used the Vintage Gold wax from this month’s kit!

DSC_0006_FRAMED DSC_0005_FRAMED DSC_0002_FRAMED

I used a paintbrush to apply some Glossy Accents to the sisal and then sprinkled the glitter on! I didn’t shake off the extra until I thought all of the pieces were set and dry!

On the box I used the Sparks paints and the wax from this months kit!

Sketch Challenge

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the February 2020 scrapbook kit. The  papers from Lemoncraft are so girly and pretty. They are pefect for any Valentine’s Day project or gift. I’m really enjoying working with this kit.

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the February sketch. I love the softness of this kit.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

 I used some clear gesso on the background first, then did some light stenciling. Once dry I added lots of stamping with some archival ink. The chipboard swirls are from my stash and I used some clear gesso  and then embossed them.

I used some cutouts from the ephemera sheet to layer behind my photo. I also used a die cut doily with some hearts on it. The cardboard clock is from my stash. Here you can see more of the stamping.

Here is my cluster on the other side. More stamping. The resin piece came from my stash. I added flowers and a piece of flair from the kit.

Valentine Loaded Envelope Box Happy Mail Idea

Hello crafty friends!! Jeanne back here this month with a super fun project I created as my first Valentine project this year. I used items from the February  Cards, Tags, & More Kit ! I figured since this is a holiday of love, its nice to send someone a little special something just to say “I’m thinking of you” or something along those lines (haha)!

I have created other similar projects such as loaded envelopes, envelope flip albums among other ideas for snail mail.

This loaded envelope box measures 6 1/4 X 10 with the width measuring 1 inch. On the tutorial that I followed , the envelope its self was created with designer paper, I decided to create it using some heavy textured cardstock. I then just cut and adhered paper from Simple Stories My Valentine paper pad from this months kit. I also used one of the smaller banner stickers from the sticker sheet, which I love by the way!!

I then embellished the envelope with some laces, paper doily,  some liquid pearls, & small stickers. I didn’t want to embellish it too much and not be able to tell it is an envelope box.

I created some cute tags using the Ranger Manilla Craft Tags from the kit. I did cut out some cute images from another Valentine collection I had left over scraps from. They matched perfect with this month paper collection. I altered a queen of hearts playing card using cheese cloth and some appliques. I also altered a guest check with laces, made a small pocket with some tiny tags made with scraps from the paper I used on the box itself. I also created a paper rosette with a heart applique in the center, I lightly altered a tea bag, they are super cute!!

On this video you can see the rest of the project! I hope that you like what I created for my 1st project this month and feel inspired to make something like this or any other kind of snail mail that I’m sure a family member, friend, crafty friend might love to receive this month!

Thanks for checking out my post today!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne Rodriguez

Tres Jolie Kit Club-February Mixed Media Kit-Wicker Heart

Hey, all and welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club blog! I’m here with my first February project to share with you; using the wicker heart, flowers and mediums that came in the kit, as well as items from my stash, I created a grunge-y décor piece!

Ready to see how I did it? Check out my video!

Now for some close up photos that really show the details!

DSC_0028_FRAMED

Even though it’s a resin key, the paint and “rust” really give it an aged metal look!

DSC_0027_FRAMED

DSC_0031_FRAMED

Fortunately Prima paints are rather think and quick drying! That really helped them stay on top of the burlap!

DSC_0030_FRAMED

I just love how the splattering came out! It might get messy, but the effect is absolutely worth it!

For the lattice behind the shutters I added some “Buttercup” Embossing Powder from my stash to one of the Creative Embellishment pieces found in this months kit! And the bird? One I had left from the December 2019 Scrapbooking Kit!

It doesn’t happen all the time, but sometimes I feel the need to add tons of flowers! Fortunately Kim makes sure there are flowers to spare in her kits, because two of the three additional flower packages I had saved from previous months! (In total I have five flower packs on here, two from this months kit, two from previous months, and one I actually bought myself!)

Art Journal page

Hey guys, Kim here with another spread using our Cards, Tags and More kit. This is the beginning of the year, so why not start  (or continue to) creating in your art journal. This month we have more to create in the  Prima Daily Art Journal.

I’ve said this before, I am not much of an art journal(er), but it is coming together. In the end I have to say I am very happy with the results.

 

Let’s take a look at what’s in the kit this month:

The kit contains a full set of washi tape, a stencil,a yard of burlap, rice paper, metal trinkets and some watercolor.

Like before, the best part about this kit is I don’t need a lot of time to be creative with it. The journal card gives me the prompt and I can get right to work. Perfect if I am feeling creative, but don’t have a lot of time.

It also gives me a canvas to try new things and not worry about “messing up” whole sheets of paper or full packs of embellishments. It’s the perfect size canvas to just let your creative self go.

Here are my next set of completed pages:

 

Like I said, I am really happy with how they turned out.

Here is a video of my process:

Art Journal Cover

Hey guys, Kim here with another project using our Cards, Tags and More kit. We’ve been creating on the inside of our Art Journal, so don’t you think it’s about time we do the cover?

I just kinda had fun with the cover, no real direction other than I wanted to use some crackle paste (from a paste MM kit) on the cover and to use the watercolors.

First off, let’s take a look at what’s in the kit this month:

The kit contains a full set of washi tape, a stencil,a yard of burlap, rice paper, metal trinkets and some watercolor.

Here is my completed cover:

I placed all my trinkets down where I wanted them (I added a few extra from my stash). Then I covered the entire front only with white crackle paste (including the trinkets0. I went really heavy in some spots for a bigger, deeper crackle effect.

Here is a tip with crackle paste. Once it starts to dry and crack, you can use your heat tool to speed up the process. Just don’t hold it too close.

I added watercolor, with a watercolor pen (dried between each color). Then I dug deep into my lost flower collection to find a few flowers to add. Once placed I added some art pebbles. For the final touch I did a bit of stamping and then I went over the high points and edges with antique gold wax paste.

I am extremely happy with how it turned out.

How about some close ups:
