Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in quickly this Sunday afternoon to share the Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, and if I am OK then I apologize.  Between our prolific tomato plants (we’ve harvested over 500 Roma Tomatoes…so far!).  There have been lots of special orders in my Etsy shop, family birthdays and making vats of homemade marinara and salsa happening all at the same time.  And I’ve just been too busy/tired to blog much.

But I have a few quiet moments right now to share this month’s Button Farm Club project with you.  Who knew when we began this Year in a Box Project back in November of 2019 that 2020 was going to be such a wild ride?

As I was designing these fall folios, I kept thinking to myself, “Well, we’ve saved the best for last!” The October, November and December folios are filled with vintage goodness!  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

October: Too Cute to Spook!

Authentique October Calendar Year in a Box Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for the Button Farm Club Photo 01

Like all the other folios in this series, the October folio measures 7″ x 7″ x 1/4″.  But I changed up the folio design this month to make more room for large photos.  The pull out calendar is actually a 6 1/2″ square folio.

No one does Halloween as well as Authentique Paper does.  They capture the perfect balance between spooky and fun without being too cutesy or too gruesome.

The fall folios are have a great trifold design with lots of pockets and loads of room for large photos and journaling.

The images and patterns are just spot on!

I think you are really going to love the way these folios function!

November:  Grateful Hearts

The November folio is all about having a thankful heart.  Here’s a look at the large calendar folio that tucks inside the cuffed pocket sleeve on the folio cover.  The tutorial this quarter is loaded with lots of my sneaky tricks for making the most of your papers, working with scraps and there’s even a fussy cutting tutorial thrown in for good measure.

The November papers are perfectly vintage and perfectly beautiful!

December: Festive and Jolly!

The December folios are festive and jolly, just as you would expect them to be.

For me, the big surprise is the color palette.  I love the shades of blue that are thrown in to the mix with traditional reds and greens.

You will love recording your December memories in this beautiful folio!

Year in a Box: Bigger and Better!

Several of  you that purchased the November 2019 Year in a Box Club Kit contacted me to say that you needed the box to be bigger.  So I also worked out a way to add a collar to the box.  The tutorial and supplies to fix the box are available to you through the Button Farm Club.  Contact Laura at The Button Farm Club for the details.  But you’ll be happy to know that the box can hold all 12 folios with room to spare.  They can actually stand upright so you can just flip through the folios instead of stacking them on top of one another.  It looks really good, too!

I took this photo before the gorgeous primitive gingham ribbon arrived.  It is a perfect match for the designer paper on the box and at 2 1/2″ wide, it covers most of the expansion collar.

I’ve prepared a short video tour of the folios for you on my YouTube Channel.

Your Fall Folio kit comes with everything you need to create the folios you see in the video, except for basic crafting supplies like adhesive and scissors.  You’ll receive:

  • 6 sheets of 12×12 cardstock for matting and mechanisms

Laura re-stocked the Winter, Spring and Summer Folio Kits so you can still complete the whole year or get a jump on 2021.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for your  kind support of these Button Farm Club Kits.  I love hearing that you are enjoying making these kits as gifts, making them with friends, and sharing them with others.  What a huge blessing that is to me!  The video format makes it even easier for you to craft along with me, and I’m getting good feedback from many of you saying how glad you are for those videos!  That makes my heart happy!

So now I’m going to sign off, and maybe go take a little nap before I jump back into the work week tomorrow morning!  Thanks for sharing your Sunday afternoon with me!

Cheerio,

kathy

Button Farm Club Timeless Wedding Album Kit Release

Button Farm Club Authentique Timeless Wedding Album Kit by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Button Farm Club Timeless Wedding Album Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  Because love is always in season, I’m thrilled to announce this Button Farm Club Timeless Wedding Kit Release!  This classic mini album kit is designed to help you document your wedding, celebrate a special anniversary, or create a heritage-themed wedding album that you will cherish for many years to come.

Timeless Beauty

You just can’t beat cream and black for a wedding album!  The colors never go out of style, work with any wedding color scheme, are perfect for heritage wedding albums and really make black and white portraits pop.

Designing this album was so much fun.  I started with a 49 & Market blank album.  Then I paired it up with gorgeous papers from  Authentique’s  Timeless Collection.  Creamy white flowers from Little Birdie Crafts, luxurious satin ribbon and a stylish chipboard title add extra charm to the design.

This elegant oversized antique bronze key dresses up the album spine.  A large album like this  6 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ beauty offers loads of room for photos, journaling and special memories.

A Peek Inside

Interactive elements in an album make me really happy.  So I came up with lots of ways to customize the album design to accommodate my passion for little pull-out features, folios and pockets.

The album is designed to tell your love story from the proposal to the wedding and on through the reception.  There’s even a spot to add a few honeymoon and 1st anniversary photos!  This large double waterfall feature will display 22 big photos.

Share photos of your wedding party and honored guests here.

And this gatefold design page features lots of wonderful nooks and crannies for photos and journaling.

Timeless Wedding Mini Album Kit Sneak Peek on YouTube

There are so many wonderful details in the album that I created a sneak peek video tour for you.

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!

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
