Authentique Glamour Tag & Pocket Easel Card Tutorial

Authentique Glamour Tag & Pocket Easel Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Easel cards have to be my very favorite fancy fold design.  Today’s Authentique Glamour Tag & Pocket Easel Card Tutorial will show you how to take this always fabulous card design to new heights.

Ooh la la!  Don’t you just love the shabby chic vintage vibe of this Authentique Glamour paper collection?   This little 5″ square card is loaded with fun, interactive features.  I had such fun making it, that I decided right on the spot to make a second one to share in a tutorial.

TIP: Score a 1/2″ spine into your card base design.  This way, the card will fold neatly over the dimensional brake for the easel mechanism.  I’ll show you how to do this in the video tutorial below.

You all know how much I  love my pockets.  So why not create a shaped pocket on the front of this card, then tuck in a little art tag?

Cover a G45 Ivory Square Tag quickly and easily by using the Square Tag and Clock Die to cut the liner.  I’ve actually used 3 separate dies here.  In addition to the Square Tag Die, I created a peek a boo layer with a Tim Holtz Mixed Media 2 Die.  The pretty laurel wreath die is a favorite from Spellbinders.   Light Blue Sheer Organza Ribbon with a Satin Center is topped with Silver Metallic String and a cameo button from my stash.  And Little Birdie Flowers (from AC Moore Crafts) add the perfect finishing touch.

Romantic Valentine Shaker Tags

Romantic Valentine Shaker Tags with Authentique Romance

Hello, Friends!  Happy Saturday!  I thought I’d pop in very quickly and share these romantic Valentine Shaker Tags with you today.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s always good to have a little love inspiration on board.

Romantic Valentine Shaker Tags by Kathy Clement Product by Authentique Paper Photo 01

The romance collection is just perfectly “mushy” for Valentine’s Day.   The base of each tag is  Graphic 45 Regular Kraft Tag.  Just die cut the liners with the G45 Regular Tag die, then add the decorative layers.  Since these come together so quickly,  I thought it would be fun to make a little set of romantic tags….and then I thought…”Why not add a shaker?”  So I did!

Each little shaker pouch is stitched onto a square white doily.  I sew almost all the way around the pouch, fill it with sequins, then put it back on the sewing machine to finish stitching.  It’s the easiest way I’ve found to make a shaker element.  I also die cut a wreath from gold metallic paper.  The image is from the Romance Components Sheet.  Top this off with a Geranium Pink Taffeta Bow and some sweet Little Birdie Flowers.

Flip the tag over to find a ribbon tied sweet surprise.

#G45Tag Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags

Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags #G45Tag

Hello Friends!  Tick tock, tick tock!  Do you hear that sound?  It’s the minutes until Christmas “goes live.”  I created these sweet Graphic 45 Twelve Days of Christmas Treat Tags to share with you today.  I think I can just slip these beauties in under the wire for the #G45Tag Challenge this month.

Last week, I shared some cutie patootie Christmas Magic Tags with you.  So I thought I would give equal time to the elegant styling of The Twelve Days of Christmas with these tags.

Once again, I’ve used G45 Alpha Banner Tags for my base.  These are the Kraft Alpha Banner Tags.

The Graphic 45 Staples Regular Tag and Gears Die makes short work of creating these pretty tags.  Just die cut the base layer, add a border strip from the collection, a small doily, Tag and Pocket, chipboard or sticker and a ribbon adorned mini candy cane.  Easy Peasy!

I think these would make great stocking stuffers.

Or great place cards at your holiday table!

Tags are a great way to use up scraps.  You could even hang these on the tree.

So that’s all for me today!  I just thought you’d like to see these and maybe find inspiration for your own last minute crafting.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I’m off to bake some cookies!

Cheerio,

Hello, Friends!  Happy Friday!  Let the Christmas countdown begin.  I’m just popping in with a last minute Christmas Magic Gift Card Tags Tutorial today.  It seems that everyone wants gift cards for Christmas these days, so I feel that we should at least make the packaging feel like a gift!  This set of 8 tags can be made very quickly using Graphic 45’s Christmas Magic Collection.  They can also double as ornaments on the tree, which is extra fun.

Do any of you have any of the Graphic 45 Alpha Tags in your stash?  That’s what I used as the base for these adorable tags.  If you don’t have those, you can use any of the Graphic 45 Regular Tags and ATC tags instead.

The front of each tag contains a little “book” that is tied shut with ribbon.  On the inside you’ll find the “B” side of a Christmas Magic ephemera card and a little gift card pocket.  To maket he tags feel even more festive, I’ve tucked in a Brach’s miniature candy cane.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Project Share and Mini Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Happy Saturday!  I’m here to introduce you to the Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Collection.  What a treat it was to work with these gorgeous patterns, images and sentiments!  I got so carried away with my creative time that I ended up making a card folio and two styles of mixed media tags…and a little secret surprise that I’ll share later on this month.  These projects are being featured as  the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog Saturday Showcase today.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess: Shine Card Folio

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

I began my crafty adventure by designing and creating this 7″ x 5″ waterfall card folio.  Festooned with blossoming roses, custom dyed seam binding ribbon, textiles, distressed/painted edges and metal charms, it is loaded with shabby chic charm.

The interior is a simple folio with a waterfall feature on the left and a pocket/insert on the right.  The waterfall is held shut with a little magnetic belly band closure.

Beneath the waterfall, I’ve created a little flap/pocket page with a lovely photo insert.  You all know how much I like to maximize the use of space in anything I create.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Shine Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

The pocket/folio page also uses a magnetic closure.  I reached way back into my high school days, and created a decorative tassel for the chipboard element on the flap.

The folio features a journaling page with an insert.  I’ve used the back side of a 4″ x 6″ ephemera card here.  You’ll be able to see all the details in the video tour below.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess: Mixed Media Tags

I had quite a tidy pile of scraps on my work table after making the folio, so I decided to make a couple of mixed media art tags.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Mixed Media Tag #1 by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

The first tag measures 4″ x 9″ and uses a G45 Large Kraft Tag as its base.  First I embossed the tag with Tim’s 3-D Botanical Texture Fade.  Then I took it to the mixed media day spa for a beauty treatment with gesso, crazing medium, Distress Oxide Inks, Distress Stain and Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture.   We’ll take a closer look in the video, and I’ll also share process photos for creating the mixed media background.

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess Mixed Media Tag #2 by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

For the 2nd tag, I scored the shaped edge to form a pocket.  To decorate the top edge, I die cut one of Tim’s Pediments (Sizzix Bigz Die) and covered it with paper scraps.  I love the way this tag turned out!

Glorious Graphic 45 Garden Goddess YouTube Video

In this short, 10 minute video, we’ll take a walk through of the card folio where I’ll share some tips and creative ideas.  Then I’ll show you the details of the mixed media tags and talk about creating them.  The video will conclude with still shots and text showing you how I went about creating the mixed media background.  I hope you enjoy!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post, too.
