Simple , Unique But Beautiful Layout

Hello crafty friends! This week I am back sharing a layout where I have created my own background design for my layout!

I really loved creating this layout using this month’s Cards, Tags & More Kit

You can view a quick process video of how I created this using a few, simple supplies that you most likely have in your crafty stash!!

 

I began by adhering a 12×12 sheet of light yellow card stock from American Crafts , onto a 12×12 white chipboard sheet. I then trimmed a sheet of white card stock to that yellow one but before adhering it I went along the edges using some of the Tonic Studios Embellishment Nuvo mousse   in Custard cream. I then applied some 13@arts White Gesso from a previous kit onto areas of the card stock for when I add some colors using a shimmer spray from Recollections Simply Pastel Yellow and I also added some Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Spun Sugar. I heat dried it then added some white cheese cloth for some added dimension.

I then added some of the lace from the kit and then I took a couple of sheets from the Simple Stories Vintage Garden District Paper Pad from the kit and tore some of pieces of paper to add onto the edges mainly . Before adhering the torn paper to the layout I went over the edges using one of my favorite products, the Tonic Studios Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Custard Cream color.

I want the frames from the collection to be my main focus on my layout.  Then on back of the frames I had added some light pink card stock from the kit and some pop dots which made it easier for me to add the photos of my grand daughters since I hadn’t printed them and added them right away to my layout.

So that was basically a quick over view of my project! I hope that you liked what I came up with using this month’s kit and also please don’t forget that you still have time to enter the 2 year anniversary challenge going on this month for Tres Jolie Kits!!

Talk to you all soon!! Hope u have a great weekend!!

Hugs,

Jeanne

Welcoming a new Designer

Hi everyone, Kim here. Join me today in welcoming a new designer to our team. Although you have seen some of her designs, she is officially starting with the July kits. Without further ado, I introduce to you…

Cristina Cunningham

Hi, I’m Cristina. I live in NY and am a mom of two 20-somethings and a new grandma to my sweet
Andrew. I’ve been crafting in one way or another since college, but discovered scrapbooking when my oldest was born and my love for papercrafts grew from there. My style is very shabby and feminine. My favorite projects revolve around memory keeping, but I also enjoy making junk journals, cards and altered projects. In my spare time you can find me at the beach catching a cool sunset or at the opera. I’m a former classical pianist and still enjoy going to a concert whenever I can.

Let’s give Cris a warm welcome. I am sure you will love seeing what she creates using our kits. So make sure you are subscribed to our blog, social media platforms and Youtube channel.

Thanks for stopping by!

“I Let Music Take Me Where My Heart Wants To Go” Altered Envelope

Hello crafty friends!! This week I am back to share with you this project using the June Mixed Media Kit from Tres Jolie!

I have created a photo process video to share how I went about creating this beautiful envelope!

This kit comes with a beautiful copper envelope that you can either leave as is or alter it like I did. It makes a stunning home decor piece for your home or as a gift!

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was my 1st time using the Cosmic Shimmer products which were wonderful and easy to create with! Plus I still have a lot of left over product to create more mixed media projects or however else I choose to use them as well as having the Darice white flowers, a chalk board piece and Lindy’s Stamp Gang magicals, left from the kit that I didn’t use to create another fun project!

Here is my process video:

I hope that you like what I created using this month’s mixed media kit! I will be back next week with another project using the Cards, Tags, & more kit!! Until then you can visit the Tres Jolie Blog to check out the rest of the Tres Jolie Designers and their wonderful projects!!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Sketch Challenge

Hey, all!

Today I’m bringing you the project I did for this month’s sketch challenge (sketch image below the video)! I love A.B. Studio papers, and I almost always think they should be turned into some kind of notebook or journal! Maybe it’s because they are so all so awesome I just want to see them all at once! And with Tres Jolie Kits, I get to see a lot of A.B. Studio!
DSC_0001-FRAMED

I didn’t entirely think up this project on my own, I knew I wanted to do a journal, but I didn’t necessarily want to do a full junk journal. The A.B. Studio Instagram solved my problem when I saw an accordion fold mini album on a post (using the same paper line, none the less)!

Check out my video below!



Original Sketch Mirrored Sketch
sketch Sketch-Mirrored

I used the mirrored sketch as my journal cover, and included the tag and clock elements! Sketches don’t always have to be for layouts!

I’ve included images of the inside of my journal if you’d like to see it closer!

Here’s a little something that I didn’t think of until after the video was done:

Front of paperclips Back of paperclips

I just grabbed up a couple of jumbo paperclips, some of the same burlap I used in the journal, a couple of the typewriter tiles from the kit, and glued them together with some E6000.

I hope you enjoyed this project and that it gave you some ideas of what can be done with this month’s scrapbooking kit! Don’t forget to join our sketch challenge over in the Tres Jolie Kit Club Café!

Tres Jolie Kit Club-June 2020 Mixed Media Kit-Hello

Hi, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Kit Club blog! Can you believe it’s already June?

In case you missed the reveal post, this month marks the 2-year anniversary for the Tres Jolie Kit Club!! Huge shout out to Kim for putting fabulous kits together for the past two years!!

Now, on to my first project of the month!

DSC_0001-FRAMED

This kit gave me two of my favorite products, something metal, and something that has a crackle effect! And if having a metal envelope wasn’t enough, the Metallic Gilding Polish is a dream! Check out my video to see how I put this fabulous décor piece together!


Now, have a look at these close-ups!

DSC_0025-FRAMED

Look how smooth that Metallic Gilding Polish is! You’d never know it wasn’t the original color of the “hello” and the leaves!

DSC_0002-FRAMED

I’m a hoarder, especially when it comes to flowers! And these Prima flowers from previous Tres Jolie Kits were no exception! Kim is always generous with the flowers she adds to kits, which works perfect for those of us who may use them more sparingly, and those who don’t! You’ll always have enough!

DSC_0009-FRAMED

I love the teal, black, and grey of the flowers! They match the patina of the envelope, and compliment the pinks of the Lindy’s Gang Magical Powder & the Cosmic Shimmer Metallic Gilding Polish!

DSC_0006-FRAMED

Check out those cracks! Aren’t they fabulous?!?! As my final touch, I found a package of Prima Say It In Crystals in my stash that have gems that were the perfect match!

I hope you enjoyed this project & that it gave you some ideas of what to do with your kit this month!

May sketch challenge layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the May 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. I really love the color story. Another kit I’m really enjoying working with . 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 sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here I did a bit of stenciling with some black crackle. I added a cardboard pieces from the cardboard ephemera set. I heat embossed the chipboard piece from my stash.  I used some vintage copper embossing powder on it.

The flowers are from from my stash. I like how they add texture to the layout.

Here you can see a close up of the gorgeous chipboard. More flowers from my stash and the black resin piece is from a past kit.

This handsome young man is my nephew, who was just recently taken from us by someone who thought is was ok to rob him just because they wanted what he had.

So to get through my grief, I have been scrapping pictures of him and remembering what an amazing person he was. He had been through so much (health wise)in his 32 years, but he always had a smile on his face. You will see a lot more of him in the future.

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!

DSC_0033_FRAMED


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!


Video:


DSC_0029_FRAMED DSC_0032_FRAMED

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.

DSC_0026_FRAMED DSC_0027_FRAMED

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!

DSC_0025_FRAMED

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!


April Mixed Media Kit

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!!

 

~Hugs~
