Quick Cards

Hi everyone Kim here. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  Since I have all this time right now, I created these quick cards with the April Cards, Tags and More kit.

If you haven’t seen (or bought) the April kit, you are missing out. It is filed with lots of fun bright colors and you can’t help but feel all warm inside when looking at it.

Here is the kit:

Here are the 2 quick cards I created with it:

With all the social distancing, I created cards to send out,  as I know a few people are going thru some really difficult times.

Even though the sentiments on the cards aren’t very up beat, I think the cards themselves are very calming.

They were very simple to make. I used some of the cutouts from the A4 paper pad in the kit. Trimmed them down, and added them to the front of a card I cut from cardstock.

I used flowers (the yellow ones) from the kit to embellish the cards. The chipboard sentiments are from a past kit. I embossed them with embossing powder and glued them to the card. Done.

We will be revealing our May 2020 kit this Saturday to coincide with National Scrapbooking Day. So make sure you come back to the blog and our Facebook page (link below) to join in on all the fun and challenges.

Tres Jolie Kit Club–April 2020 Mixed Media Kit–Spring Flower Pots

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

Today I have some spring flower pots I decorated with items from the kit and multiple partial packs of flowers from my stash!

Below is the video of what I did! This project was rather quick and simple, and in no time I had a lovely trio of flower pots to help bring in spring!

To coat my flower pots I mixed some texture paste with the gesso and texture powder from the kit. After that dried, I spritzed the pots with water, sprinkled some of the “Alpine Ice Rose” Magical Shakers on, and spritzed some water on again. When that dried, I sprayed the flower pots with ModPodge Acrylic Sealer to keep the Magical Shaker in place.

Even though the bling from the kit is self adhesive, I added some extra FabriTac before wrapping the tops of the pots, just to be safe!

I filled the flower pots with some floral moss from Dollar Tree, and was able to finish off three partial packs of flowers and a package of leaves!

I hope this gave you some ideas of what can be done with this months kit! I spent $2 (+tax!) at the Dollar Tree for the 3-pack of pots and the bag of moss (and I still have lots of moss left!!), added items from this months kit, and cleared out some of my hoarded flowers to create this little spring décor piece!

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!!

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Prima Marketing  texture paste and this cute 4×4 canvas. Also included is a resin frame, black gesso and the brand new Finnabair rice paper sheets.

Here is the kit:

I love the texture paste, and I have worked with them  before. This was a fun, but messy project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I added some flowers, resin and lace from my stash.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the texture paste:
