Secret Love Letter Stack

Hello crafty friends! This week I am back with a fun and unique project that I have created a couple times a few years back for a swap with crafty friends! Of course I used this month’s  Cards, Tags, & More kit from Tres Jolie for  this project. I also created a process video that I hope you will find easy to follow.


I absolutely love this paper collection from Ciao Bella “The Muse”! I used all of the 12 x12 paper stack for this project! I used laces, doilies, snippets of laces, beaded trim, the stamp from the kit as well as others from my stash. I used flowers from the kit and others . I also used some rub ons from 7 Gypsies, “Hello” wax stamp, & the beautiful chipboard frames from the kit!





I hope that you enjoyed the project that I came up with this week using this beautiful kit!!

If you have any questions regarding my process video please feel free to contact me. Here is my email address, or you can leave a comment on my video on YouTube.

Again stay safe, stay home and craft your heart away! Don’t forget to join Tres Jolie Monthly Sketch challenge and Mood Board Challenge!!

Happy Crafting

International Scrapbooking Day–Tres Jolie Kit Club-BINGO! Challenge

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie blog, and thank you for joining us for this years iNSD (International Scrapbooking Day) Challenges!!

I have created a BINGO challenge (blank Bingo card at the end of the post) for all to participate in! (The use of Tres Jolie Kits are not a requirement). All types of projects are welcome as long as the requirement is met! (Prize provided Tres Jolie Kit Club!)

Now, to the requirement! It’s rather simple, all you need to do is have all five (5) elements of the one (1) row OR one (1) column OR one (1) diagonal that you choose included on your project!

(Share your projects here…Tres Jolie Kit Club Facebook)

You are not limited to only those five (5) elements, but all five (5) must be included! And you do not need to do a project for each direction, or do more than one project!


I have put together a couple of examples for you to view; a layout, a mini-journal/notebook, and a mixed media canvas. You do not have to create any specific project type! These are just some examples of what can be done!

First, the layout:


Sample layout (featuring my youngest!) The column I picked for my layout!

I created a process video to accompany the photos for an overview of my creative process!

I hope this project gave you some ideas! Now on to the next example, a Mini-Journal/Notebook!

There are flowers on the cover and on the patterned papers, the staples and eyelet are metal, there are three half-back beads on the cover, as well as a chipboard frame around “Notes,” and the mini-paper clips are wooden!

My third example is a mixed media project featuring a photo of my son’s friend! (With her permission, of course!)

Layers don’t only have to be paper! Here I have the rice paper, chipboard, and flowers! The flowers on the background are the rice paper from this month’s Cards, Tags, and More Kit!
The fine black text is from the stamp that came in the May Cards, Tags, and More Kit! I added some glass beads randomly along the chipboard pieces as a final touch!

I hope these three projects gave you some ideas of what to do for your Bingo project(s)! Can’t wait to see your beautiful creations over at the Tres Jolie Cafe!
