A card and gift tag set

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a beautiful coral/peachy colored kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create feminine cards for birthdays or bright cheery get well cards. I used it to created a birthday card and gift tag set.

This is a big card, I used the full 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper to create the base. I used another sheet to die cut the frame.

How about some close-ups:

For the background I layered 2 sheets of paper. I used a peach pastel chalk ink on the edges of the paper. I also did some faux stitching and stamping on the top layer.

I used some foam tape on the frame to give the card some more dimension. I also added some foam tape to the flower. The frame was inked with the peach chalk ink and the edges was rubbed with some metallic wax in firebird. The butterfly was dry brushed with a metallic golden coal paint (I wish you could see how shimmery it is). The center piece is a resin made from a moud and rubbed with the same wax used on the frame.

The base of the tag was created the same way as the card. The oval frame is the inside of the die cut. It got the same ink and wax treatment as well. The center is a small leftover resin piece. I just painted it with a bit of the metallic gold paint. I punched a hole in the corner and added the seam binding so it could be tied to a gift bag of just a gift.

“Vintage Artistry Coral” 3×3 Shabby Notecards

Hello crafty friends! I’m back this month with some beautiful collections again from Tres Jolie Kits! The project I picked to do as my first project were these cute and pretty easy 3×3 notecards. I used the September Cards, Tags, & More Kit to create these.

I began by cutting a few sheets of the 8.5 X 11 white card stock that was included in the kit into 3 X 6 pieces , once you have cut the amount of card bases you are going to want to make then you take your score board & bone folder or score tool and score your base at the 3in mark . Which of course is the center where you will be making your fold.

     

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

   

 

Once you have all of  your card bases folded in half, set them aside . Now you can pick out the papers from the 49 & Market Vintage Artistry Collection(Coral). Once you have chosen the papers you might like to use for your cards. I then cut them about 1/8 inch shorter than the size of the base. After finishing up with those papers, I took my Prima Marketing Distress Tool , you are welcome to use any distress tool or even a pair of scissors to distress the edges of the design paper or you can also choose to leave them without distressing. That is completely your choice. I myself love how it looks a little more shabby with the edges distressed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I then adhered the distressed papers onto the folded base. As a side note, I normally like to add colored card stock to the inside of the card, usually the color of the design paper, which in this case had a soft coral color. I add this so you can write down your inside message. I didn’t have any without the texture that would coordinate it so I ended up using American Crafts Textured card stock. But since you won’t be able to actually write on this kind of paper I cut some of the left over white card stock that I used for the base.

I then had to finish up the front so I added some pieces of the 49 & market Vintage Artistry Coral Washi Tape from the kit onto the cards in different directions. I also decided I would add some stenciling to these cute cards . On half of the cards I mixed up some DecoArt Deco Media Crackle Paste with some of the Finnibair Textured Powder from a previous Tres Jolie Kit. I applied it with a spatula onto a Prima Marketing Doily Stencil.

For the other half of the cards I mixed up the same texture/crackle mix and then added some Prima Marketing Color Bloom Spray in Ginger Coral color, although it turned out more pink than I wanted , it still added a little color to the lighter design paper that had a lighter background on it. For these cards I applied the mixture onto the Feather Stencil from Brutus Monroe .  I then used my heat tool to dry them as well as allowing more of the crackles to come thru. They are more noticeable on the ones with the white. I also used the same Crackle Paste on the chipboard butterflies that came with the kit. I did that on half of the cards and for the other half I used some of the butterflies that were in the paper collection perforated sheet. Lastly I added some sentiments from the Finnabair Art Daily Planner Sentiment Booklet and added some snippets of lace on half of them!

There are a variety of projects that you can create with this kit. I just decided that I would create these note cards since I like to add them to swaps , happy mail, or just to say “Hello”! I hope that you enjoyed what I created for my first project using this month’s kit. Keep checking in daily for more projects from my wonderfully talented team mates!! I know you will have lots of great inspiration and I do hope that you will join in this month’s mood board challenge! You can share what you create over at the Tres Jolie Kit Club Cafe, there is an album where your entries go in. So try it out! Well I’ll see ya all next Friday with another project!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

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

“Blessed” Ringed Mini Album

Hello crafty friends!! Today I’m sharing the first project I created using the August Card, Tags, & More kit. This kit came with some beautiful papers, cut outs & my favorite was the gold doilies. The entire kit was beautifully put together and very easy to put together.

 

If you purchased this kit and have never created a ringed mini album, the one thing I can tell you is that this is the easiest kind of mini album that you can create. I think these are fun to make for any level but most definitely for beginners, this is what I would go with.

Here is the process video of how I created mine. I hope you can get an idea of what I did , it honestly is very easy. Everything that Kim put in this kit makes it that easy. Maybe the only thing that took any kind of work was cutting the chipboard she provided to size,  which you can cut yours to any size you would like. Mine measures 8 1/2 X 8 1/2.

I hope that you like what I came up with this month. If you purchased this kit, please don’t forget to share with us your final project on the Facebook page Tres Jolie Kit Club . Also don’t forget to join in this month’s sketch challenge!

I’ll be back next week with my next project. See Ya then….

Hugs,

Jeanne

Tres Jolie Kit Club – July 2020 Cards, Tags, & More Kit

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

Today I’m bringing you the junk journal I created using this month’s Cards, Tags, & More Kit. I had such a blast making this journal, and even though I didn’t originally intend to kill the kit, as I kept going it became a personal challenge to see if I could get everything in!

For the video, I put the flip-through in at the beginning, then followed it up with the process. I hope you take a peek at it and enjoy it! Below the video, I have added a few photos of the finished journal.


Video:


I used the new Tim Holtz color, “Speckled Egg,” throughout the journal. It went beautifully with the Stamperia papers that came in this month’s kit. For the resin pieces, I used some of the “Speckled Egg” oxide and embossing glaze, and some “Gathered Twig” Distress Crayon.

I pieced together the smaller “left-over” pieces to cover the “manila” colored tags that came in the kit and added some string from my stash.

I cut out the ATC sized cards from the paper and attached them to one side of the popcorn bag that came in my kit! (Your bag may be different) I turned the two music prints into envelopes and added them in, and peeking out of this one is a little notebook I made from the largest left-over piece I had and some standard notebook paper.

The final page and inside of the back cover, which contains a flip out.

I hope you enjoyed this project and had a chance to see my process video, most of it is sped up, but I do stop to explain in quite a few areas! Thank you for joining us here at Tres Jolie!

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:

There is also our monthly challenge. You still have time to enter if you haven’t. The challenge is open to everyone and there is always a great prize for the winner.

Wall hanging using the cards, tags and more kit.

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a bright fun kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create summer cards for birthdays or graduations. It’s also great for smaller off the page projects. That’s what I did with it. I created this wall hanging.

I had this piece of a embroidery hoop left (the outside ring broke). So I thought, why not put it to good use. I used a sheet of the cardstock from the kit for the base of the project.

How about some close-ups:

I fussy cut one of the sheets of paper from the pad for the background. I adhered it to the cardstock with foam tape to give it some dimension. I also added a die cut doily on top of the fussy cut paper.

I used the yellow flowers from the kit, then added a couple of pink from my stash. I cut a saying from the paper pad and glued it to a frame.

The flowers were arranged around and under the frame. Then I added a few leaves from my stash. The chipboard is from the kit. I just painted it with a bit of gold paint.

This is the finished product. This was a pretty quick project to create. I just need to add a picture hanger on the back.

Thanks for stopping by.
