Stamperia Alice Etcetera Tag Tutorial for Frilly & Funkie Saturday Showcase

Hello, Friends!  Happy Saturday!  I’m up on the Frilly and Funkie Saturday Showcase today, where I’m sharing this Stamperia Alice Etcetera Tag Tutorial.  You’ll want to pop on by to see the tips and details I’m sharing there. . This is a technique laden tutorial demonstrating how to:

  • Alter metal embellishments with paint and embossing powders.
  • Prepare a mixed media background using scraps of paper and Distress Mediums.
  • Use Distress Paint and Embossing Powders to create a cool textured border.
  • Create a double sided waterfall with vellum hinges.

I had such fun creating the front of this Mixed Media Etcetera Tag, that I decided to flip it over and create a waterfall feature on the back side.  So now this home decor item can also be used for photos.  how fun is that?

Authentique Rustic Shaker Card Tutorial

Authentique Rustic Shaker Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  How about a little masculine card action? Today’s Authentique Rustic Shaker Card Tutorial will show you how to use Eileen Hull’s Frame Die to create a very handsome shaker card in a jiffy.

How to Build a Shaker Box using Eileen Hull’s Frame Die

Authentique Rustic Shaker Card Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

This 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ top fold card celebrates the beauty of the outdoors in style!  Here’s how I put the shaker box together using Eileen’s die:

  • First, die cut the Mailable Frame Die from Rustic Seven.
  • Next, carefully cut the “v” shaped flap away from the base.  Set this aside to use in some other project.
  • Now, cut along the scored crease line in the die to create two separate pieces: a plaid window piece, and a collaged piece.
  • Next, stitch burlap ribbon around the perimeter of the window, if desired.
  • Then, cut a piece of clear acrylic cardstock the same size as the window piece and glue to the BACK side of the plaid paper.
  • Now create an elevation for your shaker card using foam tape, or sections of waste chipboard.  I used 3 layers of 1/4″ wide matboard glued together to create my elevation. If you use foam tape, you will want to use at least 2 layers to give the shaker elements room to move around.
  • When the elevation is adhered to the back side of the plaid paper, fill it with your shaker elements.
  • If using foam tape, remove the liner and adhere the word collage panel to the back of the shaker box.  If using waste chipboard, you will need to place adhesive on the edges of the word collage paper before adhering.
  • Finally, hot glue wooden buttons in the corners of the shaker box where the burlap intersects.
  • Then adhere the shaker box to the bottom card layers.

Crafty Crush: Eileen Hull Notebook Die for Frilly and Funkie

Hello, Friends!  Have you had a chance to play with the new Eileen Hull Notebook Die?  I have a serious crafty crush on it.  I’ll tell you all about it in a moment, but first let me welcome you to the “I Love It Because…” challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog.  Our lovely hostess, the marvelous Jenny Marples, has this to say about the theme:

I love it because…

My challenge to you is to make a vintage or shabby chic piece of art, be it a journal page, a tag, a card, a home decor project etc, that fills you with happiness and makes you smile – don’t forget to tell us why you love it so much.

If you are not familiar with the new Eileen Hull Notebook Die by Sizzix, let me be the first to introduce you.  This genius little die cuts a 3 1/2″ x 5″ notebook from mat board, fabric, leather, or chipboard with one pass through your die cutting machine.

At the same time as it cuts the chosen material, it also creases an area that becomes the spine.  This is book binding at it’s easiest and most basic.  So if you’ve ever wanted to make your own little books, this is a great way to get started.

Eileen Hull Notebook Die: I Love it Because
  • Ease of Use
  • Size: It fits inside her cleverly designed Treasure Box
  • Versatility: You can design this album in any number of ways.  You can find more examples of how I’ve used this clever die HERE and HERE.
  • Quick to make: I can knock out one of these lovely little notebooks in a couple of hours.  Then I have the perfect little gift to present, and people are always thrilled to receive it.

How could you not love this gorgeous paper?  The colors are my favorites, and the images are just dreamy.  And look at that wee snail?  I love him!

Stamperia builds their collections so that the mixed media effects I love so much are incorporated into the design.  I can add stenciling and texture on top of that if I desire to do so.  Or, I can simply cut apart the bits and pieces, dress them up with a little ribbon and a charm and be all set.

For this little album, I printed out a selection of my favorite Spring poems and quotes.  I wanted a little lap book that could be perused at leisure, or used for home decor.

Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial

Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  Happy Monday!  I’m back from the beach and ready to share this shabby chic Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial with you.  This tutorial is loaded with techniques, mechanisms, tips and tricks that will help you take your crafting to the next level.  If you’ve always wanted to create a folio, but didn’t know where to start, this is the blog post you’ve been waiting for!

Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

This 5 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ tri-fold folio is made with two 8 1/2″ x 11″ heavy cardstock.  You’ll find a linked supply list at the end of this post.

Alter this 3″ x 4″ Tim Holtz Vignette Frame with Distress Paints and Sprays.  While I don’t share this step in the tutorial, you can learn how to do this HERE.

Authentique Paper always adds cute banner elements to their cardstock components sheets.  Mat this “Dream” banner on scraps of Spectrum Silver Dollar and Tickled Pink Cardstock to really make it pop.

Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial: Some Details

To create this ribbon closure, follow these easy steps:

  • After you have matted your folio base with Spectrum Cardstock, find the center point.
  • Next, wrap 1/2″ Scor-Tape all the way around the folio from the back cover, over the spine and to the front edge.
  • Then, cut a piece of ribbon that is at least 12″ longer than the combined width of the cover, spine and back cover.
  • Finally, remove the liner tape and press the ribbon onto the adhesive to secure.
  • Now you can build your cover over the top of the ribbon closure.

Bangles add such a fun touch to a folio spine.  I created this cluster with a mini glass bottle, some beads, a lobster clasp and some metal charms.

TIP: Alter metal charms by tapping them with Distress Paint that matches your color scheme.

TIP: For extra fun, fill the glass bottle with glitter.  Then wrap it with a pretty washi tape.

This is what the folio looks like fully opened.  It has (2) 5 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ panels, (1) 5″ x 8 1/2″ panel and one little flip page that measures 3″ x 8 1/2″.

The tutorial will show you how to build all these mechanisms:

  • Double Hidden Pocket with Inserts
  • Shaped Flap page
  • Horizontal waterfall
  • Tag Pocket and vertical waterfall
  • Box Pocket
  • Tea Bag Pocket and Belly Band Tuck Spot
  • Flip page with double magnetic folios

This sweet Eileen Hull Notebook is tucked into the box pocket.  We don’t get into creating that in this tutorial, but I’ll be sharing a tutorial for that very soon, so stand by!  The video was getting very long, so I had to make some tough choices!

Inside the notebook, you’ll find a little flap page that’s a perfect spot for a photo or some journaling.  Instead of creating standard book pages, I added an accordion pull out page on the right.  This is topped with a little flap feature.

TIP: Score an image that is too large to fit your page.  Now you have created an easy flap mechanism.  Isn’t that fun?

Here’s a peek at the accordion fold mechanism inside the notebook.  As I said, we’ll be sharing that here soon!

Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial: Tag Insert

Authentique Dreamy Folio Tutorial Eileen Graphic 45 Large Ivory Tag Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 11

I needed an element to hold the waterfall feature closed.  So I created a tag pocket and a little art tag.  When the tag is inserted in the pocket, it keeps the waterfall feature from flapping around.  Here’s how to make it:

  • First, cover a Graphic 45 Large Ivory Tag with a liner that you’ve cut with the Large Tag/ATC Tag/Flowers Die.
  • Next, cut a 3″ high panel of the pink feather paper the same width as the tag liner and adhere.
  • Stitch some ruffled ribbon onto the tag.  Then wrap with jute cord and attach a small butterfly charm.
  • Fold a small white doily in half and adhere above the pink feather paper.
  • Cut a wide banner flag from paper scraps and tuck beneath the feather paper.
  • Fussy cut the butterfly girl image from the 4″ x 6″ journal card.  (Dreamy 6)
  • Adhere the fussy cut image to the tag so that the head is aligned with the center of the doily.
  • Place small dimensional tabs underneath the butterfly wings to add more dimension.
  • Pop the “Love Life” Cardstock Component up on dimensionals and adhere.
  • Create top and bottom borders with 3/4″ high scraps of the grey print.
  • Thread ribbon through the top of the tag.  Add tassel, flowers and jute bow.
