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

Today I thought I would show you a unique gifty item that is in my wheelhouse!  Jewelry!

I used the ReDesign Modeling Material by Prima to make these fun little stud earrings and made a mixed media tag from a ATC card to give them as a unique and thoughtful gift.  All the supplies I used were from either this kit or past mixed media kits!

Here are a couple of close ups but check out the little video below (it’s more of a slide show) with more details on a step by step of how this project came together.

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:

Rustic Shabby Chic Mini Album for Tres Jolie Kits Mood Board Challenge

Hello crafty friends!! This week I am back to share what I created this month for the the July Mood Board Challenge. I used the stunning July Scrapbook Kit which included the papers from Scrapboys “Dream Garden”! This kit was filled with flowers which I love and I am pretty sure I used all of them with the exception of maybe a few blue ones. I always try not to make my mini albums so chunky but that is always a fail! I can’t help it! I hope u like what I have come up with for this challenge! There is still time for YOU to enter as well! So hurry and share with us what you have created for this mood board challenge!

For the base of this album I used one of the premade chipboard albums from Frank Garcia which is a Memory Hardware Album, it measures 5.5 x 7.5. I usually paint the edges of my albums with Antique White Acrylic Paint but lately I love how the Tonic Studios Embellishment Mousse in Chai Latte.  

Its a little light so you might not be able to tell but it does give it a little pop of color and shimmer as well.

I then distressed the edges with my Prima Marketing Distress Tool   and I also used some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges as well. This gives it a more rustic look rather than just Shabby Chic.

Once I adhered my papers I began adding some Ivory non brand card stock photo mats backed with American Crafts Pink Textured Card stock and I also added some of the 49&Market Sky Stitched Frames that were in the kit. I did end up cutting up some of the tags from a past kit from Tres Jolie that had the perfect color combo to go with this album. I also used a Dusty Attic Chipboard frame that was also from a past kit. But you can use what ever you want to embellish your album if you don’t have these on hand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did use some of the cut outs from the “Dream Garden” sheet. I also used up the rest of the Shabby Chic Bugs from Prima Marketing that were also in the scrapbook kit. I also added some of the  Ballerina Liquid Pearls from Ranger on the wings and body of the resin butterfly, these liquid pearls were also a part of the Scrapbook kit.

Here is a quick video where I share the entire album:

I do hope that you find some inspiration from my project as well as from the other Tres Jolie Designers. If you have never made a mini album and feel intimidated to try it, these premade chipboard albums make it SO MUCH EASIER. I hope you will give it a try and share with us!!

See you all in August!! I’m excited to share my projects with you!!

HUGS

Mixed Media Acrylic Tag

Hello crafty friends!! Today I am back to share with you this tag that I created using the Acrylic Tag & one of the sheets from the July Scrapbook Kit.

 

To create this tag I began by fussy cutting all of the images from the cover sheet of the 12×12 papers that came in the Scrapbook kit which are from Scrap Boys Dream Garden collection. Once this was done I applied some white gesso with a foam brush only on the center of the tag and a little on a couple of the corners. Once this air dried I brushed on some DecoArt Media Mister White Shimmer spray.    

     

I wasn’t able to get a photo of the spray bottle but there is a little shimmer on the area where I applied the gesso. The next step I did was mix some of the Lindy’s Magicals Bougainvillea Fuchsia from a previous kit, with some DecoArt Crackle Paste  and used it on a non brand chevron stencil from my stash. Once that dried I assembled the fussy cut images how I wanted them on my tag , most of the time I will take a photo so that I don’t forget how I had them on my tag or even on layouts.  I used some foam dots on the cut pieces to give the tag a more dimensional look which I like how that turned out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The last thing that I did was add some vintage photos from the Finnabair Vintage Photobooth Sticker Booklet . I cropped them at the corners with the WeRMemory Keepers Corner Rounder and added some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges just as I did around all of the fussy cut images.  I finished it off by covering the photos and making some splatters using the same DecoArt Media White Shimmer spray all around the finished tag.  Then adding a dainty pink lace from my stash and a piece of twine .

I hope that you have enjoyed my blog post today and you feel inspired to create something wonderful with your acrylic tag. I found many ideas on how to create this tag on Pinterest and YouTube.  I will be back next week to share the project I have done for the July Mood Board Challenge. I hope that you will join in on this challenge. See you all then!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Easy DIY Bookmarks

Hello crafty friends!! Today’s project I created these very easy to create book marks! using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More from Tres Jolie. This month’s kit is so pretty!! In these papers from Ciao Bella, they have a few sheets of so many tags and others cut outs that can be used in a variety of ways. I decided that with a few of these tags I would make some book marks.                                                                                                                                                            

 

I began by cutting out the tags from one of the sheets of the Ciao Bella Sicilia A4 paper pad. I cut some yellow American Crafts card stock to make it a little sturdier , then added other design paper from the paper pad on the back of that.

Once I was done, I adhered them together , used some Tim Holtz distress ink Squeezed Lemonade and the Prima Chalk ink Worn Jeans from the kit , around the edges of the tags. I then used some glitter card stock to make the reinforcers & regular card stock for the reinforcers on the back. I then added some white and dark blue ribbon.

Lastly I ran them thru my Scotch laminating machine and trimmed them to size.

These were very simple to create and of course they can be used as regular tags. I will be using them for the books I am gonna be reading. This set would also make a great gift for any occasion. I might be adding a tassel later on. Another idea you can also do is add a magnet as well. There are just many ways to use the tags/cut outs from these collection.

I hope that you  like what I have created this week and I’ll be back next week with another great project with a tutorial to go with it! So stay tuned, meanwhile, check out the blog posts the rest of the designers will be posting till then! Plus don’t forget to join this month’s sketch challenge to win a great prize from Tres Jolie! Stay safe my friends!!

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!!

HUGS,
