Button Farm Club Spring Folios Kit Reveal

Button Farm Club Spring Folios Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  Happy Saturday!  I’m just popping in real quick to share my Button Farm Club Spring Folios Kit Reveal with you.  This is the second installment of my Year in a Box Project for The Button Farm Club.  Now spring is peeping around the corner and it’s time to get our April, May and June folios made.

And, I have good news for you!  The first kit sold out very quickly.  And while we don’t have any more of the supplies to make the box, you can buy the tutorial HERE and make the box with your own supplies.  (You can still purchase Mister at Scrapbook.com, and Laura has feet, numbers and flowers in her shop.)

In addition, the folios were so popular that Laura has decided to provide more of the January, February and March folio kits for you in the shop.  Of course these will come with the tutorial, too.  So nothing but good news for you today!

Button Farm Club Spring Folios: What’s New

To keep you from getting bored, I changed up the design of the folios this month.  They are still 7″ x 7″ so they fit in the box, but they are a top fold design with lots of interactive elements inside.

We’re going to learn how to:  make a box pocket the easy way, make flap pages, hidden pockets, cuffed pockets, mini folios and great tips for stretching your designer papers.

Each month also has a BONUS tutorial for a darling gift card holder from your scraps.

Spring is a season filled with special occasions: Easter, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day to name a few.  And don’t forget all those June weddings!  You’ll be ready for all the memorable moments!

Here’s a short video walk through so you can see how fun these spring folios are.

Button Farm Club Spring Folios: How to Order

I’ve saved the best news for last!  The price of the folio kit is just $27!  These are limited editions, so first come, first served!  You can order your kit HERE.

Here’s what comes in each kit:

  • (24) 12×12 sheets of Authentique Calendar Paper: 2 each of the April, May and June images, patterns, sentiments and colored cardstock.
  • (6) 12×12 sheets of cream cardstock for matting and building folios
  • Full color, printed step by step tutorial

These folios come together very quickly.  And don’t forget: you can use the tutorial with other papers to create unique gifts for friends and family.  How fun is that?

Once again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your enthusiasm for these kits.  I am having such a great time thinking them up, designing and sharing them with you.

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!  And thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal

Carta Bella Home Again Altered Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag and Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Button Farm Club Photo 01

Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal: Carta Bella Home Again Altered Etcetera Tag & Folio

Hello, Friends!  I’m so excited to share my Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal with you today.  This idea has been rumbling around in my head for weeks, and I’m truly tickled with result.  It’s home decor, it’s an organizing tool and it’s a folio all in one.  I think you are going to love this Carta Bella Home Again Altered Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag & Folio!

If you’ve never worked with a Tim Holtz Etcetera Tag before, you are in for a treat!  The tags are made from thickboard: a thick sturdy surface that is perfect for collage, altering and embellishing.  The small tag we use in this project measures a generous 5 1/2″ x 10″; a perfect size for  home decor. And what collection could possibly be better for home decor than Home Again?  The fresh farmhouse vibe, the pretty patterns and the soothing color palette are delightful to work with.

You all know me so well…I like pretty…but I like practical, too.  So I designed this tag with a big ole slash pocket to hold an altered notebook.  It’s the perfect place to jot down a to do list, menu plans, emergency contact numbers, grocery lists….or a little daily gratitude journal.  There’s room to tuck a pen into the pocket, too so everything you need will be right at your fingertips.

Button Farm Club January 2020 Kit Reveal: The Folio

The flip side of the tag houses a delightful tri-fold folio.  You’ll learn how to paper piece this adorable little house on the cover…and just wait til you see what’s inside!

This sweet little folio is filled with flips, flaps, pockets, tags and room for loads of lovely family memories.

The waterfall feature will house (18) 4″ x 4″ photos.  And the other photo spots are designed for photos ranging in size from 4″ x 6″ to 3″ x 5″.  And, if you add a little bulldog clip to the sides, the folio will stand upright so you can display your beautiful family photos.

I think this would make a wonderful bridal shower gift, house warming present, birthday gift and…Mother’s Day will be here before we know it!  The color palette almost reads as a neutral, so it would go with almost any home color scheme.

YouTube Video Tour

To help you get a feel for the flow and function of this lovely kit, I’ve created a very short YouTube tour.

What Comes in the Kit?

As always, you will receive everything you need to complete this project with the exception of your adhesive of choice and Distress Ink, should you choose to sponge a little on the edges.

  • Tim Holtz Small Etcetera Tag
  • Carta Bella Home Again Collection
    • 1 sheet 12 x 12 Journaling Cards
    • 1 Coordinating Solids Pack
    • 1 6×6 Paper Pad
    • 1 Chipboard Phrases
  • Little Birdie Heleen Amor Mio Flowers
  • Bay Leaf Seam Binding/2 yards
  • October Afternoon Buttons (blue/3 per kit/small, med, large if possible)
  • Farmhouse Small Notebook
  • 2 pearl stickpins
  • Full color printed tutorial with easy to follow step by step instructions.

The price of the kit is just $39.99, which is a great value given the contents! The tutorial will give you some new techniques that you’ll be able to use in other crafty adventures as well.

The kit is available now at The Button Farm Club. This is a limited release, and I expect it to sell out rather quickly because it is so stinkin’ cute!

For those of you who have been asking for more card tutorials…stay tuned.  There’s a birthday card kit in the works even as I write this.  It’s going to be really, really cute!

I have spent a good bit of time imagining kits for 2020…and I am so excited to share them all with you as they are released.  2020 is going to be a year that just overflows with creativity.  Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement in this venture.  If you have kits that you’d like to see in 2020, please let me know, and I’ll take them into consideration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

2020 Year in a Box Button Farm Club Release

2020 Year in a Box Button Farm Club Kit Release by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

2020 Year in a Box Button Farm Club Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  I have been planning and designing this  Button Farm Club 2020 Year in a Box Kit for many months.  And today is release day!  Hooray!  Hooray!  I can’t wait to share all the details with you!

2020 Year in a Box: A Unique Memory Keeping System

Life is filled with all kinds of days: celebration days, happy days, ordinary days…days that you want to hold onto forever. Sometimes we want to make time stand still.  Well, I can’t do that for you, but I can supply you with the 2020 Year in a Box Calendar Kit.  This unique memory keeping system is designed to make it easy for you to hold on to all the happiest moments of 2020.

 

The 2020 Year in A Box Kit consists of a series of 12 folios: one for each month of the year, housed in a handsome and sturdy 8” x 8” storage box that you will be proud to display as part of your home décor.

Simple elegance was my goal for the storage box.  Neutral colors and timeless patterns were a must.  I finally decided on a classic grey, cream and tan colors and patterns that had a vintage farmhouse vibe.  This means the box will look great in any home.

2020 Year in a Box: The Monthly Folios

Each gatefold style folio measures 7” x 7” and has room for at least a dozen photographs of your favorite moments from each month of the year. You’ll find pockets with mini folios, a monthly calendar, tags and journaling spots, a blank panel where you can make lists of special events like birthdays, holidays or anniversaries, hidden pockets, pull out folios, meaningful sentiments and lovely vintage images tucked inside each month.  There’s even a monthly greeting card tucked inside that you can give, or use for journaling and small photos.


Because time is precious, I’ve designed the folios to be quick and easy to create.  When finished, store them inside the box for safekeeping.  Display a favorite photo or inspirational quote on the easel that tops the box lid.

Each quarter, I’ll change up the folio design so that you don’t get bored.  I’ll build in fun mechanisms to keep things interesting.  And those are skills that you can easily transfer into your other crafty adventures. It will be like taking a class with me each quarter!

2020 Year in A Box: What You Get

The first kit is massive.  You’ll get everything you need to create the home decor box and the first 3 folios for January, February and March.

You can buy the kits a la carte, or you can save money by subscribing for the whole year.

This is a quarterly subscription kit.  The first kit will come with all the supplies and instructions for the elegant box and the January, February and March folios.  We will release the folios for subsequent months once a quarter.  Here’s what comes in the first kit:

  • (1) 8” x 8” x 4” Papier-mâché Box with Lid
  • (24) 12″ x 12″ Sheets of Authentique  Calendar Collection Paper
  • (4) 12×12 Sheets of Authentique paper to cover the box
  • (2) 12×12 sheets of Ivory Cardstock for matting and mechanisms
  • Antique Bronze Feet (4)
  • Little Birdie Flowers, white
  • 1 yard gingham ribbon
  • Gold Metallic Number Packet
  • Antique Bronze Bulldog Clip
  • Full color, printed,  step by step tutorial

The price for the kit is only $54.00.  Laura has the subscription all set up in the Button Farm Club shop, so pop on over and get your name on the  list.  Although you can purchase each quarterly kit a la carte, you’ll enjoy significant savings when you subscribe.

If you’d like to see more of the kit, take a peek at this release video.

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to see this concept come to life!  This has been in my dreams and on my mind for the better part of 2019.  I hope you are as excited about it as I am.  2020 is looking good!

If you’d like to see my other Button Farm kits, you can find out about them HERE. Or shop for them at the Button Farm Club.

Thanks as always for your wonderful support and encouragement!

Rejoice Christmas Recipe Mini Album Kit Release

Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Mini Album Kit Release from The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  It’s time to announce the release of my Rejoice Christmas Recipe Mini Album Kit with the Button Farm Club.  I think this is my favorite kit for 2019.  Warm and nostalgic, fun and festive, pretty and practical…this album kit has it all. Even jingle bells!

Holiday baking is part of what makes the season so special.  We all have special family recipes that we only pull out at Yuletide.  Many of these are family heritage recipes.  For years, I’ve had these recipes scattered in various file folders, cookbooks and boxes.  Every year it’s like a scavenger hunt gathering them all up for holiday baking with my kids and grandkids.  Now I can finally have them all at my fingertips in this gorgeous Christmas recipe album!

The base is a Frank Garcia Dossier Waterfall album measuring 6″ x 9″.  It does double duty as Christmas kitchen decor.

I’ve built in loads of pockets, interactive elements and places for recipes, photos and journaling.

This is the album fully opened.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  The center waterfall has room for 24 recipe cards.  The side pocket holds a bundle of printed holiday recipe cards bundled together with Christmas Plaid ribbon.

Rejoice Christmas Recipe Mini Album Kit:  YouTube Video

To help you get a feel for all the wonderful features of this album, I prepared a very short video tour.

Rejoice Christmas Recipe Mini Album Kit:  What Comes in the Kit

Basically, everything you need comes in the kit.  Just add your favorite adhesive and cutting/scoring tools.  Here’s what comes in this wonderful kit:

  • Prima Dossier Waterfall Album designed by Frank Garcia
  • (16) 12″ x 12″ sheets of Authentique Rejoice paper
  • (1) 12″ x 12″ Rejoice Cardstock Die Cut Elements Sheet
  • (5) 12″ x 12″ sheets of color matched Spectrum Cardstock

  •  burlap string/ 2 yards
  • 2 full packages of Little Birdie Christmas Flowers

This is the perfect holiday gift for yourself, or your favorite baker.  It’s a wonderful family activity for the holiday season, and is destined to become a treasured family keepsake.

The price of the kit is just $54.99.  I honestly do not think you could buy all the individual elements for less.  I have so much fun curating these kits with Laura at The Button Farm.  We search high and low for just the right ribbons and embellishments to make the kits extra special.

You can order your kit at The Button Farm Club.  It will ship out in time for you to get it made for your Christmas celebrations.

As always, I thank you for your kind support of these Button Farm Kit projects.  So  many of you have asked if I teach classes. This is how I do it.  I’m always honored to share these kits with you, and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
