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,

There is so much that I was able to create with this months kit. So even if you don’t have 12×12 sheets of design paper , I used almost the entire 6×8 paper to create the variety of projects even a 12×12 layout as I did in my previous project or a Loaded Envelope Happy Mail Box w/ embellishments that I created for my 1st project of this month! So don’t limit yourself as to what you can create !

 

Although I’m sure majority of you all have created cards of all sizes, I just thought you would like to see some of the steps that I did to create my cards .

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

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
