“Industrial Romance” Hot Air Balloon Mood Board Challenge

Hello again crafty friends! This week I am excited to share with u all this month’s project for the Mood Board Challenge for Tres Jolie Kits! For this project I used the September Scrapbook Kit. This beautiful kit is not only a vintage feel but a steampunk one too!

When I first seen this kit I immediately got the idea I wanted to create a paper Hot Air Balloon. This project had been on my crafty bucket list for a while now when I seen the one that Miranda MsLiberty25 created. I followed her tutorial for the hot air balloon its self. I knew I wanted to add an airship instead of a basket or gondola. So while looking around online, I came across a shop on Etsy who sold some wooden 3-D puzzles. So looking around on their shop, I came across a couple different models, I chose the cheaper and best size I figured would work best. It was a 176 piece puzzle that my husband and I enjoyed creating!! We are now thinking we want to purchase more for us to do together and perhaps get some for our grandsons.

 

I absolutely loved creating this hot air balloon and found this month’s kit went so well with the mood board that Kim has chosen for this month! I do hope that you will enter the challenge this month since it is still open the rest of this month. So I hope that you will join in.

I hope that you have been inspired by the project I created this month for the challenge! This month the rest of the team members of Tres Jolie created some wonderful projects so I hope you check out this blog daily where you can find more inspirational projects. Till next time!! Xoxo

 

XOXO,

JEANNE

Mood Board Monday

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a masculine layout created with the September 2020 scrapbook kit. The papers from Scrapboys are amazing. I’m really loving with this kit. Masculine layouts are becoming my thing.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the September mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I covered the sheet in clear gesso to prep it for the stenciling and misting I did. Here you can see where I used just the leftover modeling paste on the stencil to create this light design. The stenciling is heavier in other places.

Here you can see more of the stenciling and misting. You can also see the chipboard that I used a textured embossing powder on. There are also a few layers under the photo from papers in the kit. I did a bit of fussy cutting on the pipe frame from one of the sheets.

More layers, chipboard (swirls were cut from gear border) and flowers from the kit. Another fussy cut frame from the papers.

“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

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:

“Just Imagine” Mini Junk Journal

Hello again crafty friends!! Well July is already here and I can’t believe how quick the months seem to by going by! I hope that everyone is doing well and staying home and keeping yourselves safe! Well this month I am excited to share the project that I have been looking forward to creating for some time now. As most of you might that this months kit for the Cards, Tags, & More kit is a mini junk journal kit that I helped Kim put together….just helped a little bit! I loved it! Thanks Kim!! Anyhow on to my project!!

 

I began by cutting the papers from the 8X8 Stamperia “Imagine” paper pad from the kit. I cut the papers to the sizes of canvas pages and as I was creating , I did end up using a couple papers from a vintage stash I had cut and of course I also used some of the music sheets from the kit. I also did some light stitching on some of the pages not all because I am fairly new at sewing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once I finished adhering the paper on the pages, I began making my pockets which included some of the music sheets from the kit, I used lace from the kit & on the last page I used on of the ephemera cards from the kit. I created some tuck spots using the larger tickets from the Tim Holtz Tickets included in the kit, I used the smaller ones on some of the coffee/tea dyed journaling papers (as seen in the above right photo & the bottom left photo the larger ticket). I also did some stamping on the journaling papers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will also notice on one of the pages I added the envelope onto the page and added the bingo card inside as a journaling spot and adhered one of the music flares onto the envelope. This was the only flip page I created on this album.

 

 

I cut out the tiny tags from one of the 8X8 sheets which I absolutely love tiny tags! I did add some in the pockets & tuck spots but the rest I made a quick tiny tag album adhering them with some twine. I also created a small album from some of the cut outs that to me looked like pages from a book, I binded them with the same twine. I used a few of the milk caps and a lot of the ephemera. To be honest I had to stop myself from trying to use up every last piece of supplies from the kit because I started to notice it was getting too chunky!

I have added a short video to share the entire album but I did want to add that on the cover I used the closure that came with the album, I cut it to fit my album and had adhered it before adding my cover and back page. I also fussy cut one of the beautiful mini art dresses that were printed on one of the pages of the paper pad from the kit. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and I adhered it with some foam tape, I adhered the Gothic Frame and then added this dress. I had cut also some of the beautiful sentiments that were throughout the papers and chose one for the title of my mini junk journal which read ” The creation of beauty is Art”! Lastly I had already added a different lace on the cover but then last week when I went to my doctor appointment my hubby took me over to one of my favorite consignment stores which I was surprised was open, and found some vintage laces so I came home and added one of these instead! I hope u like how it looks!

Well crafty friends, I sure do hope that you liked this mini junk journal that almost doesn’t look too mini by the size lol but I sure loved creating this small piece of art using this fun kit!! So if you haven’t purchased yours yet , head over to the Tres Jolie website before they sell out!! I’ll be back on Friday with another fun project using the July Scrapbook kit!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

May Mood Board Challenge By Jeanne

Hello crafty friends!! TGIF right?!?! I hope that you all have a wonderful week and have a better weekend! This week I wanted to create something for this month’s mood board challenge for Tres Jolie.

The moment I seen this mood board I knew exactly what products I would be using! Here is what I came up with! I hope you like it!!

I created this layout for this month’s Mood Board Challenge using a paper collection from Pink Paislee called Auburn Lane  . I thought this collection was perfect for this month’s mood board. I did think of another collection too but it was more of a vintage look and I didn’t have 12×12 sheets for a layout.

 

 

I layered different papers as well as tore some up & inked all of the edges with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I then mixed up some of the Finnabair Texture Powder from on of our last kits with some of the 13@arts white gesso and applied to to the Finnabair Stencil from another of the Tres Jolie Kits. Stenciled a few areas then added some Prima Bloom Spray in Precious Stone color which to me gives off a dark green shimmer and sprayed some water to get the color to run in other areas. I must say it did end up more than what I wanted but no worries, I still managed to save it!

I then began embellishing using some fussy cut flowers I cut from the collection as well as flowers from another Tres Jolie kit. I also used some Lindy’s embossing powder, chipboard windows, metal clock piece, a 49& Market flower vine, all from past kits as well. I added some stickers images inside the windows. I also added some lace and cheese cloth and a button on the clock piece as well.

I do hope that you like what I created this month for the Mood Board challenge! Don’t forget to join!! I will be back next week with my sketch board challenge entry! See ya then!! Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend!!

~Hugs~

Jeanne

 

May Mood Board layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a masculine layout created with the May 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. I’m really enjoying working with this kit. It is definitely my style.

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

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the May mood board.

Here is the mood board:

How about some close-ups:

I used a tag from the paper pack to layer behind my photo. I also used some colored burlap from my stash. The chipboard is from a past kit. I just inked it with some brown chalk ink. I used lots of texture including drywall tape (from a past MM kit), burlap flowers and nail heads.

I did some stamping all around the photo with black ink and a script stamp from my stash. I also added some background stenciling using modeling paste. Then added more burlap flowers (from my stash).

Have you joined in on our monthly challenge? Why not, you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. Our May challenges (we have a sketch and mood board this month) just started, so there is still plenty of time to join.
