Button Farm Club Alice’s Tea Party Boxed Mini Albums Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  After months of planning and working, I am finally able to share my Alice’s Tea Party Boxed Mini Albums Kit Reveal!  This wonderful, whimsical, adorable project kit is available right now at The Button Farm Club.  Alice, The White Rabbit, and The Mad Hatter would love to join you for a private tea party.  Are you ready to see what they have planned for you? Then read on!

Alice’s Tea Party Boxed Mini Albums Kit Reveal:  The Venue

This magical tea party event takes place inside a beautifully altered Graphic 45 Book Box.  Cover the box with Memory Place Alice’s Tea Party papers.

Add a cute pair of antique bronze box feet to elevate the design.  Then adorn it with fabulous ribbons and Little Birdie Flowers.  People, I’m tellin’ ya!  This project is everything I dreamed it would be and more!

There’s fun on every side….

….even the back !  I designed this project with parties and centerpieces in mind.  So I created a darling tag album and pocket feature on the back side of the lid.

Add hidden journaling or photos on the back of the tags.  Aren’t they cute?

Alice’s Tea Party Boxed Mini Albums Kit Reveal:  The  Mini Albums

Each of the three albums in the box stars one of the main characters from Alice in Wonderland.  The Alice Mini Album is loaded with interactive elements, hidden pockets and even a pop up page.  The White Rabbit Mini Album features double accordion pull out pages.  You can fit 14 photos here.  Then, last but not least, The Mad Hatter Mini Album houses a pair of box pockets filled with mini folios.

The Video Tour

I prepared a little video tour of the project for your viewing pleasure.

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Kit Authentique Calendar July, August, September by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Kit July, August and September

Hello, Friends!  Can you believe it is time to release the Button Farm Club Year in a Box Kit for July, August and September?  This year is just racing by!  Once again,  I’ve changed up the format for these little 7″ x 7″ monthly folios.   (If you’re new to the blog, you can find out about the Year in a Box Project HERE. )

Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy!

The summer months are filled with so many wonderful events: back yard barbecues, trips to the beach, pool time, and 4th of July celebrations, just to name a few.

You’ll be able to document them all in these clever little folios.

Each one is loaded with pockets, mini folios and room to add photos and jounaling.

The monthly calendar rests inside a little sleeve on the folio cover.  Flip it over to find room to make lists, journal or add a photo.

This quarter features a clever 6′ x 4″ pull out page along with a cute pocket filled with tags and a ledger sheet.

You’ll learn how to make an accordion style pocket to hold 2 mini folios, too.

Apple Picking Time!

September is one of my favorite months of the year.  The images and color palette for the September folio are just stunning!

Back to school, an apple for the teacher and falling leaves…what could be more welcoming?

Video Flip Through

To help you get an idea for the way these folios work, I’ve prepared a very short video flip through.

Kit Details

Each kit for this release contains the following:

  • (24) 12×12 sheets of Authentique Calendar collection
    • 2 each of the images, sentiments, patterns, and solid sheets for July, August and September
    • (3) 12×12 sheets of cream cardstock
    • Basic written cutting and instruction guides
    • Links to video tutorials for each folio

The wonderful thing about these folio kits is that you will be able to use the design with other paper collections.  They make wonderful gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and other holidays.

Each kit costs $27.00.  You’ll only need to add your adhesives and basic crafting supplies like scissors, rulers, paper cutters, etc.

These kits are limited, so order before they disappear.  You can order your kit HERE.  Laura at Button Farm Club has a few Spring and Winter Folios left in stock, so you can still get this “year in a box” project completed.  2020 has certainly been a year to remember!

As always, thank you so much for your support.  Many of you have asked me to travel and teach classes.  This is an easy way for you to take a class with me as we create these folios together in the video tutorials.  It’s such an honor to share these designs with you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

New Button Farm Club Kit: G45 Farmhouse Folio

Graphic 45 Farmhouse Folio Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

New Button Farm Club Kit: G45 Farmhouse Folio

Hello, Friends!  This is a happy Saturday for me, because I get to reveal my new Button Farm Club Kit.  Life is crazy and stressful and complicated right now.  I thought it would be the perfect time to release this Graphic 45 Farmhouse Folio Kit. Everything about this folio celebrates the simple joys and ordinary pleasures that make life sweet.

I’ve prepared a video tour of this 8 1/4″ x 8″ fold out style folio for you so you can see how all the fun mechanisms work.  This one is filled with fun interactive features that I think you are gonna love!

The clip in this photo does not come with the kit.  I had to use it to keep the Barn Door Feature closed while taking photos.  Yes, I said Barn Door feature:

Welcome to the barn!  You’ll have to see how this works in the video.  It’s pretty sweet!

Here’s the waterfall and a fun flip out feature….more surprises here!

You’ll learn how to make this cute string tie pocket in the kit tutorial, too.

This new folio design is really fun to make.  The thing I love the most about learning how to build a folio base is that once you’ve made one, you can easily change things up and make it again and again with different themes and collections.  It’s like adding a whole new tool to your tool belt.

New Button Farm Club Kit:  G45 Farmhouse Video Tour

Would you like to join me down on the farm this morning?  Just click play to see the features of this wonderful new kit.

I’m also excited to tell you that the tutorial this time around is actually a video!  You will be able to create this wonderful folio along with me.  This will make it so much easier for you to create your own folio.

New Button Farm Club Kit Contents

You will receive everything you need to make this G45 Farmhouse Folio in your kit.  The only things you need to add are your adhesive of choice and basic crafting tools like scissors, paper trimmer, bone folder, and a scoring tool.   The kit contains everything else, and it is a HUGE kit this month:

  • Graphic 45 Farmhouse
    • 12×12 Paper Collection Kit (includes stickers)
    • Farmhouse Chipboard
    • Die Cut Farmhouse Ephemera Pack
    • 1 of each Ephemera card from the collection
  • 4 sheets of heavy 12×12 kraft cardstock
  • 20 sheets of 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock in black, cream and brown
  • Package of Little Birdie Flowers
  • 2 yards of houndstooth ribbon
  • 2 yards of burlap string
  • 7 ivory buttons
  • 3 vintage style manila tags
  • Links to private video tutorials

The price for this kit is just $62.99. If you went to the craft store and tried to buy all the elements in this kit, I don’t think you could do it for less.  Plus, with the kit, you get the video tutorials.  Such a great deal!

This is a limited edition, which means once it is gone, it is gone. So if you think you want it, you will probably need to order it quickly. Last month’s kit sold out in under 24 hours!  (Thank you, thank you, thank you!) You can place your order HERE.

A Little Happy News!

So many of us are stuck at home right now.  Crafting is definitely good therapy!  Laura and I chatted and decided to re-release a few of your favorite “sold out” kits to help you stay happy and productive during this difficult time.

So many of you were disappointed to miss out on the Peter Cottontail Kit.  Laura has managed to put a few more kits together for you.  You can order those HERE.  She has also made the tutorial available for purchase if you already have the paper, but want to know how to make the project.  You can order that HERE.

Many, many of you have asked about the Rejoice Christmas Recipe Album Kit.  Well, good news!  Laura has found enough supplies to release 24 more kits!  You can order that kit HERE.

One of my most popular kits was also a recipe album.  This Ingredient Kit sold out in just a few hours!  (Wow.  Again, thank you so much!) Laura managed to find enough of this kit to release 2 more kits.

We don’t want you to get bored!  LOL

Again, I thank you so much for your amazing response to these kits.  Many of you have asked me to travel to your area and do a class.  But I’m a home body, and I don’t love to travel.  These kits…and now the video tutorials, are the next best thing to taking a class with me.

Now, I hope you have a good Saturday and a restful weekend!  Sending you my thoughts and prayers that you all stay safe, stay well, and stay happy making pretty things from paper!

Cheerio,

kathy

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Card Kit Reveal

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Card Kit by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Button Farm Club Photo 01

The Button Farm Club: Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Card Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  This Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Card Kit Reveal is designed to bring a smile to your face in the middle of all the crazy stuff that is going on around us.   It’s my latest kit for the Button Farm Club, and it is pure FUN!  And I think we could all use a little fun and distraction right now.  I’m thinking about each one of you, praying for your health and safety.  We’ll muddle on through this mess together, and I will try to share lots of crafty inspiration here to brighten our days. 

This kit has been rattling around in my brain for weeks.  I wanted to put together a unique card kit that would work for masculine cards, feminine cards and cards for teens.  It needed to include cards for all kinds of occasions.  I wanted to include cards that were so easy to make that even a beginner could succeed.  But I also wanted to have cards with enough of a challenge to satisfy intermediate and advanced cardmakers.   So I thought, and thought, and sketched out ideas, and finally came up with the 7 cards and folio that you see in the photo above.  I’m not gonna lie…I love the way this kit turned out, and I think you will, too. So if you’re ready for some imagination, creativity and whimsy…read on!

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Card Kit Reveal: The Folio

Folios are so much fun to make and give.  This one measures a generous 6 1/2″ x 8″ and would work for men, women and teens.  It’s a great design for beginners, too. I envisioned this folio as something that could be presented as a birthday, graduation, or retirement gift.  There’s lots of room for photos and journaling tucked inside.

This basic folio is a really quick and easy make.  Just change out your papers and themes, and you have a gift for every occasion.

You’ll find tags, journal cards and these cute gift card holders tucked inside.  How fun is that?

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Card Kit Reveal: The Cards

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Shaker Card by kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

How would you like to learn a whole new way to make shaker cards?  I mean, we all love them, but making them can be a little intimidating, right?  Well, when this idea popped into my head, I literally did the “wow, I could have had a V-8” forehead slap.  You will NOT believe how easy it is to  make this fabulous shaker card!

Tall and skinny cards are very much on trend right now.  And this cutaway tall & skinny card design is one that you will love to add to your crafty toolbelt!  It is simple enough for a beginner to make, but impressive enough to give as a gift.

Here’s another quick and easy card design.  If you have struggled with layering patterned papers, the tutorial in this kit is like letting you in on my process for making cards.  It’s going to help you think about using your papers in different ways.  My hope is that you will have more confidence and enjoyment in your card making adventures once you’ve completed this kit.

Do you want more of a challenge?  Then this Z-Fold Pop Up Box Style card is just what you’ve been dreaming of.  The amazing thing is, once you break this card design down into simple steps, it’s really not hard  to make.

And how much fun would it be to give this card to a young lady graduating from college or high school?  The sentiment is just perfect but the whimsy would really appeal to teens and tweens.

Got a milestone birthday coming up?  This is the card!

And to top it all off…..

…..this fun design!

Each card in the kit has a gift pocket, so the card becomes the present.  Y’all know how much I love that!
