I’ve covered the window opening with an easy to make shaker pouch.  This is probably the easiest way I know to create a shaker element.  Learn how to make one in the video tutorial below.

I dug through my embellishments to create a little charm cluster made with broken jewelry, a metal key and padlock, vintage style safety pin and a darling miniature spoon.  This is topped with a double loop green gingham bow, gold string and fancy button.

A Proper Gentleman Card Folio Tutorial is Now Live

Because I was out of a few supplies, you will find a few of the details in this tutorial are slightly different from the original project.  (And truthfully, I hate making the exact same thing twice.) But the basics are all the same, and the process is exactly the same.

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 02This is a “beginning to end” tutorial that will guide you through every single step in creating this folio.  (A labor of love, my friends…this took 2 1/2 days of my life.  LOL)  I had to split the tutorial into two parts because of its length.

Sometimes, I can’t believe how much I manage to pack into one of these little folios.  The tutorial will guide you through creating the pocket, the insert and the little tea bag wallet.  You’ll have to provide the Soda Bread recipe yourself.

Saint Patrick’s Day Trifold Shaker Folio Tutorial Video

NOTE:  I need to add a correction to this video tutorial.  In a sleep deprived state, I provided the wrong measurements for the Green Thumb Spectrum liner panels.  The correct measurements are 5 3/8″ x 5 3/8″ for the square panels.  The “short” panel should measure 4 5/8″ x 5 3/8″.  So sorry for any frustration or confusion this error might have caused.  Never create a video tutorial when you are tired!  Lesson learned.  Thanks for your gracious understanding.

Stamperia Friends YouTube Hop

Stamperia Friends YouTube Hop Music Folio with Journal Insert Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  I’m so excited about today’s post that I can hardly stand it!  This Stamperia Friends YouTube Hop was first announced on my YouTube Channel in October of 2018.  Packages took a long time to ship, the holidays happened and the date kept getting pushed back.  But the time is finally here, and the hop is now live.  If you love Stamperia Papers, and you love video tutorials, then you are going to love this amazing hop!  It’s an incredible honor to be part of a wonderful line up of mixed media artists who all share a love for Stamperia papers.

I decided to create a mixed media trifold folio using Stamperia’s gorgeous Music paper pad.  This is a 5  1/4″ x 7 1/4″ trifold folio with loads of pockets, flaps and interactive elements.

Similar in design to the Love Notes folio I made for Graphic 45 at CHA, this slightly smaller folio has a lovely secret tucked inside.

The center box style pocket holds this hand stitched 4″ x 5 1/2″ journal.

I’ve prepared a YouTube video tour and tutorial for this project so you can see all the details and learn how to create your own folio, should you desire to do so.

In the description box below the video, you will find links to all the other YouTube videos in the hop.  You will want to hop along, as we are giving away TEN Stamperia prize packages for those who hop, comment, subscribe to the channels in the hop and subscribe to the Stamperia channel on YouTube.

I’ll provide a link to the products I used below.  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the hop!

Cheerio,

kathy
