Autumn Tag and Wall Hanging

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a couple of projects I  created with the November cards, tags and more kit. The papers from Ciao Bella in this kit have the best Autumn colors. It was a lot of fun creating these projects.

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

Here are the projects I created with it:

I created a large tag and also a wall hanging. They can be given as 1 gift or separate gifts, I haven’t decided yet.

For the wall hanging, I took the 5×7 piece of chipboard from the kit and used it as my base. I then covered that with paper and inked the edges using green ink from last months kit.

After that I started building my layers with the cut outs from the A4 paper in the kit. There were so many to choose from. I added flowers and leaves(from the kit) and chipboard (from the kit) in between my layers.  I embossed the chipboard with a bit of orange and green embossing powder.

The title is also from the A4 cutout sheet. There are a lot of Autumn sayings on the sheets.

For my tags, I basically did the same thing. I used an older G45 large tag as a template and cut my tag from the 12×12 paper.

Again, I used chipboard (from the kit) and flowers (from my stash) to place in between the layers. I also added a piece of lace (from a past kit) under a layer.

These 2 projects were easy and fun to make

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dancing in the leaves

Hello again crafty friends! Jeanne here up on the blog, I’m back this week with a couple tags that I really enjoyed creating. Using the beautiful kit from the Cards, Tags, And More, I was truly inspired to keep the tags intact and not cut them smaller.

I love stamped images and don’t have a whole lot of them but the ones I do have I love to paper piece & if you have never tried it, I suggest u do especially if your intimidated by coloring images as I am. I do color the skin using Spectrum Noir Copic Markers. Aside from the cute Gorjuss girl images I layered papers from the kit on one of the tags as well as using the packaging from some Prima Marketing flowers from the kit on another tag.

 

       

Here are some photos I took as I was creating these, I applied Nuvo Mousse, colors Custard CreamToasted Almond  on the edges of the tags. I then added some of the papers from the kit. I used lace from the kit, I cut out some sentiments from one of the papers , some of the Prima leaves packet from the kit and other embellishments you might see on my tags.

These were super fun to create & if you would like to learn how to paper piece these or other stamped images, I am happy to do a tutorial or you can find many on YouTube. I do hope that you like what I have created with this beautiful kit from Tres Jolie. Continue reading “Dancing in the leaves”

Memories Of My Mother By: Jeanne Rodriguez

Hi Tres Jolie family! Jeanne here today on the Tres Jolie blog with my first design team project! I was super thrilled when I received my very first kit from Kim! I am creating using the Cards, Tags, & more and absolutely love the papers I used from Ciao Bella Papers!

It was the perfect collection at this time not only because of it being fall and the colors are stunning but November is a special month for me. It is a bittersweet thing because on November 9th it would have been my moms 95th birthday but on November 8th 2017 was when she passed away. I wanted to create something in her memory so I came up with an altered embroidery hoop.

                                               I loved that background paper I used out of the A4 paper pad from Ciao Bella Sounds of Autumn , I did some fussy cutting of some of the leaves as well as using some of the leaves from Prima Marketing Fall Pine pack & Prima Marketing Autumn Sunset pack which came in this beautiful kit.

If you would like to take a look at my unboxing video you can do so  here . I do hope that you like what I have created as my first project using this kit and I’m excited to share with you the rest of my upcoming projects this month!

So a big “THANK YOU”  for taking time to read my blog post today!!  I’ll be back!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne

Cards, Tags and more October Kit by Annie

Hello everyone !

I am sharing today a different project : I have been doing Project Life since January and I thought it might be fun to do a spread in my album with this month’s Cards, Tags and more kit because I LOVE Fall and I have beautiful past memories of this season.  I just adore this 8×8 paper kit from Prima ! Love all the Fall colours and small details you can cut and use as ephemeras on cards, mini-albums, etc.

So here are my two layouts :

As you can see, I tried to use as many papers as possible because I think they are gorgeous and went perfectly with all my photos! I cut a few pumpkins, butterflies and cute ephemeras to decorate.  I used some of the chipboard leaves that I coloured with the ink included in the kit.

I used a circle punch to add details and some hearts from my stash.  For the words Fall and Friends I used a letter die with papers from the kit.

Here are some close-ups :

thank you for watching !

Mixed Media Monday (using the Tag Kit)

Hi everyone, Kim here. Today I am going to be sharing a mixed media canvas I created using the tag kit. I really stepped outside of my comfort zone with this kit.

This month’s card kit features the wooden Julie Nutting dolls and tags. Here is the kit:

 

So, I have never worked with these before. However, they are great for my niece. I created a canvas for her room. Here is my canvas:

I used the mermaid doll for the canvas. For the mixed media, I used items from past mixed media kits. I used the texture paste, watercolors and seashells from past Tres Jolie Kits (they can be found here).

Here are some close ups of the canvas:

I have never used watercolors on wood, so I learned a few things. Use less water to prevent color bleed. I got a bit of it, but hey I can live with it.  For the skin tone, I used my water color pencils. I think it turned out pretty decent for my first time.

The saying behind the frame is a 3×4 card from the Prima Zella Teal line (from my stash). The color was perfect for this.

For the background, I used the rust effect paste from a past kit in Fantasy. I used the powder blue to cover the canvas, then filled in with the purple and turquoise until I was happy.

The flowers and cheesecloth are from my stash. I filled in the floral cluster with some seashells and the other wooden accessories that came with the doll. I added a few melange pebbles, then lightly dusted over the flowers with the purple rust effects paint and called it done.

Gift ATC’s with Ginny

Hello again!

Today I’m sharing with you my ATC’s created with the Card, Tags and More Kit from Tres Jolie Kits.

These were really fun to create with. There are loads of ATC/tags to alter in this kit, one for everyone in your family, perfect as little cute sentiment gifts just to let people know your thinking of them….

I have two sets to show you, a floral Shabby Chic set which incorporated flowers from the January Scrapbook Kit too and another set using just the Cards Tags and More kit, which is more striking to look at.

Lets have a look….

 

 

 

I used one of the large ‘Classic Cards’ Wooden ATC’s for my background base and then used the ‘Lovely Prints’ set layered up over the top.
I used 3 of these, one I left as it was showing the print pattern and the other two I covered with some of the Art Paper.

 

The large background tag I added some Prima Graphite texture paste stencilling.

 

I used the 7gypsies adhesive doilies wrapped around the sides of the ATC.
I added some Tim Holtz tissue tape around the ATC too from my stash.

 

The embellishment clusters used the flowers and resin icons arranged over the ribbon I tied around the ATC.
The scrabble tiles were from my stash as were the druzzy stones.

 

I attached 2 of the Velvet Trinkets to dangle at the bottom of the tags.

 

The leaves were from the flowers sets in the Scrapbook Kit.

 

Now to show you the second set…. shabby chic ATC’s

 

 

 

 

This set is using the small plain wooden ATC’s which ive lightly brushed over with some gesso.

 

I used some small cut up pieces of the floral chipboard piece in the Scrapbook kit painted with gesso and built the flowers up over that.

 

In the background you can see the I have used a roughly torn oblong of Art Paper.
The ATC’s were finished off with a decorative tile and Nuvo Crystal drops.

 

I used small wooden sentiment titles from my stash to personise them into sweet little messages to gift to dear ones and friends.

 

The last thing I did to them was to rub over some Prima Opal Magics to the edge of the flowers, wooden title words chippy and the tile.. this adds a little glimmer to the whole thing. This was from a previous kit.

 

The flowers are a mixture from the Scrapbook kit and the Card Tag and More kit.
