Tres Jolie Kit Club–March 2020 Moodboard– “Emerald Queen” Junk Journal

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog!

Today I have an example project, a junk journal, for this months moodboard challenge!

DSC_0057-FRAMED

I was in love with the “Emerald Queen” line by AB Studio that came in this months scrapbooking kit as soon as I saw the photos! And when I saw the books on the moodboard, I knew I’d be making a junk journal! And it was serendipitous that the green fabric image (above the clocks) fit with some sari silk I had already prepared for use! Below the moodboard image I have two video links, one is a flip-through of the completed journal and the other is a process video.

On the spine I let some of the fibers from The Paper Studio peek through the zipper, then added a Prima Vintage Trinket! I added some “Sage” Embossing Powder by Ranger to the chipboard from the kit and added it to the layers on my cover.

Here you can see the many various laces I used along the edges of the pages!

I layered some scraps of fabric, lace, and a zipper from an old jacket with items from this months kit on the cover, “holding” them in place with clips from my stash!

The band I used to hold the junk journal closed is a headband! I found packages of them on clearance one time and it suddenly dawned on me that they would be great for junk journals!

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,

March Mood Board Monday and Challenge Winner

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the March 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are so amazing. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. It has really pushed me past my comfort zone.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the March mood board. I love the color scheme of it all.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

 I did a lot of fussy cutting from the transparency sheet that is included in the kit. I love how the black show up on the green.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous chipboard frame. I embossed it using some vintage green embossing powder. It has flecks of gold in it that match perfectly. I used a combination of flowers from the kit and a few from my stash.

Now on to our sketch challenge winner from February.

This was the sketch:

 

Congratulations to our winner:

Tres Jolie Kit Club-January Mood Board-Symphony of Love

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

Today I am sharing with you a piece I created using the January Scrapbooking Kit, inspired by this months mood board! (See below!)

In the above photos you can see where I added the “Daffodil” Shimmerz Creameez & “Milled Lavender” Distress Oxide Spray!

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:

Cuteness, Sweet and Adorable layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. I am back sharing another layout created with the January 2020 scrapbook kit. This kit is just to die for. It’s so shabby chic.

Here is another look at the kit:

Here is the layout I created with it:

How about some close-ups:

I also used a combo of flowers, both are from the kit. I have lots of bits and bobs from my leftover tray I keep on my desk. That’s a piece of a die cut under the floral cluster. The title words and resin shutter are also from my stash. Everything got a rub of wax paste from a past kit.

I tore the top layer of paper to expose the sheet beneath. I wanted to play off of both textures. I added some stamping and stenciling to add more dimension.

I used some leftover lace under my photo. I also used my metallic pastel accents (from a previous kit) to add some extra color. You can also see more of the stamping. Topped off with some art stones and I was done.

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the January 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from AB Studios are so lovely. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. I know I say this almost every month, but this is becoming one of my favorite kits of 2020 (wink).

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

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the January mood board. I love the shabby chicness of this kit.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

 I embossed the chipboard using vintage gold embossing powders. This was from my stash. The Window arch is from the kit, the swirl is from my stash. I also used a combo of flowers. The pink flowers are from the kit. The purple ones are from my stash.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous pink floral cluster. Plus more of the chipboard piece that was embossed.I layered some paper, a doily and tag under the photo. I added a resin photo corner.

I added a small amount of stamping to blend in with the background of the paper. Used some phrase stickers and it was done.
