Button Farm Club Floral Tapestry Folio Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  Come take a stroll through my summer garden as I share my Button Farm Club Floral Tapestry Kit Reveal!  This “made from scratch” gatefold style folio is loaded with gorgeous florals, vintage patterns and interactive elements.

The 7” x 8 ½” folio base has a double slimline gatefold cover featuring a vintage book of poetry surrounded by vibrant flowers.  Open the cover to reveal all kinds of pull out pages, hidden pages, pockets and tags.  The box style pocket in the center of the folio holds a 5” x 7” flip book with flaps, tip-in pages, pockets, accordion pull-out pages and waterfall features.  There’s loads of room for photos and journaling, or simply enjoy the folio as home décor or a lap book. 

Here’s a peek inside the folio.  This is really two projects in one.  First, we build the gatefold folio base.

Then we create this charming little junk journal to tuck in the center box pocket.  

You’ll learn some fun techniques in the video tutorials that come with this kit, too.  You’ll discover how to make the most of your scraps, how to build a stacked spine folio, how to create a hidden pull out page with a clever buckle closure, and how to layer embellishments to add lots of interest and dimension to a page.

Hello, Friends!  I’m just popping in  very quickly today to announce the release of this Salutations All Occasion Card Kit for The Button Farm Club.  If you’ve ever wished for a stack of cheery all-occasion greeting cards, then I think you’re going to love this kit.  It was put together early in March, and I’ve been patiently waiting to share it with you all.

The idea behind this kit was to provide you with a bunch of quick and easy to make cards with fresh, fun interactive designs.  For example, look at the adorable shaker elements in this window card,

Sometimes the fun is on the inside of a card design….

….like this fancy fold greeting.

Need a thank you card?

We’ve got you covered there, too!

Sneaky Tricks and Design Tips

Although these cards are quick and easy to make, the tutorial is filled with lots of my personal “sneaky tricks” and design tips.

These little details will help you take your card making from OK to “Oh, Wow!”

I’ll show you how to transform itty bitty scraps into stylish gift tags.

And just wait ’til you get a peek inside this darling little accordion folio!  Good things really do come in small packages!

Personal Update

Because many of you asked me to keep you informed, I’m also adding a little personal update to this post.  As you are probably aware. my husband Dale had a mild heart attack on April 9th.  We are beyond grateful that we got to the hospital and received treatment very quickly.  One week ago today the heart team at WakeMed Hospital placed a stent in a completely blocked artery on the right hand side of his heart.  At that time they also discovered that one of the grafts from his open heart surgery had also completely closed.

At first, they told us we would have to come back in a couple of weeks for a second, more delicate, procedure.  But by Wednesday, when we were discharged, his cardiologist said that they felt the problem was fixed.  As long as he does not experience any chest pain or shortness of breath during normal activities, they are going to leave that tricky problem alone.  So thank you, Lord.

He is recovering beautifully.  No pain or shortness of breath.  He has a great appetite.  Everything seems to be healing up just as it should.   I am all caught up on sleep and laundry and I even vacuumed the house this morning!  Yay, for NORMAL!  I’m hoping that after this week, we will be able to fully relax and enjoy the life that the Lord has so graciously given us.  My heart is so very thankful!

So that’s all the news that’s fit to print!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy

Pleated Skirt Card Carta Bella Flower Garden Card Kit by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club

I’m a sucker for a good fancy fold card, so I’ve incorporated quite a few in this kit.

Trifold Cards Carta Bella Flower Garden Card Kit by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club

With Mother’s Day, Graduation, Weddings, Bridal Showers and spring birthdays on the horizon, I’ve incorporated card designs that will work for a mulititude of occasions.

Wait ’til you see how fun this card design is!  I like to call it my “Harry and David” card design.

Springtime Card Folio for Special Event Photos

We’re also going to make a 5×7 card folio in this kit.  After all, you need a place to document and store all the beautiful memories of springtime gatherings.

Here’s a sneaky peek at what awaits you inside this folio.  You can get almost two dozen photos stored here along with plenty of room for journaling.

Multi-Layered Pop-Up Cards

We will also be taking our pop-up card skills to the next level with a pair of multi-layer pop-up card designs.  If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at a pop-up card, this is the kit for you!

Pop-up cards are easier to make than you might think, and such fun to give!

Fashionable Slimline Mosaic Cards

Carta Bella Flower Garden Slimline Cards by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club

Y’all know how much I enjoy making slimline cards.  And I am not alone!  Slimline cards are taking the cardmaking world by storm.  I’m especially fond of making them in this mosaic style.  So I tossed a couple of these designs into the kit as well.

Double Pocket and Tags Card

I am positively passionate about pockets!  I’ve made hundreds of pocket style cards.  But this double pocket and tags design is so clever, I nearly shouted “Eureka” when the idea popped into my head.  I predict you’ll want to make loads of these because they make such great gifts!

To help you get a feel for the flow and function, I’ve created a short video tour.  You’ll also see all the delightful elements that come in this kit.

 

What Comes in the Kit?

Laura and I started pulling the elements for this kit together in mid-October.  It is always fun to search for just the right combination of elements to fit the design idea that I have in my head.  And this kit is loaded with paper pretties, my friends!  Just look at what you get in this kit!

Each kit comes with:

  • 30 sheet Prima Marketing “With Love” paper pad
  • With Love Gold Foil Chipboard Elements

With the exception of a few normal, every day supplies and tools that you probably already have in your stash, everything you need to create this folio comes in the kit.  It’s an amazing value at $54.95!

How to Order

I spend days putting the video tutorials together, and I always include lots of my “sneaky tricks” while I’m teaching you how to make the folio.  My goal for each kit is to help you to grow in your skill and confidence as a paper crafter.   Best of all, you can watch each video as many times as you want to….whenever you want to!  And you can even watch in your jammies!  I’ll never tell!

This is a limited kit release, so when they are gone, they are gone.  You can order your kit from Button Farm HERE.

As always, thank you from the tips of my crafty little fingers for all your encouragement and support.  Creating with paper brings me great joy.  I love being able to share that with you in these online video classes. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cheerio,

There’s a postage stamp storage wallet and an envelope pocket built into the album design so that you’ll always have everything you need at your fingertips when it’s time to send off a birthday greeting.

The best part is that this sturdy G45 Tag and Pocket album can be used over and over again!  Just fill it up with new cards and tags and you’re ready for the next year and the next year and….you get the idea!

Hooray for 2021!  A Final Note

Now that we are past the holidays, I’m looking forward to settling into my regular posting schedule.  I’ve really missed sharing a cuppa with you several mornings a week.

I have a wonderful sense of expectation and hope for 2021!  We have so much to look forward to, and I can’t wait to share this creative journey with you here. 2021 is going to be a year of Abundance and Overflow.  I believe this is going to be a year of abundant blessing after a very difficult and tumultuous year.  May the overflow of that abundance spill out of our lives and bring life, light, hope and love to others.  That sounds like a good plan to me…how about you?

I get so excited when I hear from one of you that you’ve stepped up your card making because of projects that I share here.  I’m delighted when you share your stories with me in the comment section, too.  Even though most of us have never met face to face, I feel like you are my friends.  There is a connection we have because of our mutual love for the creative process.

I want to thank you for all the joy you bring to my life in myriad ways.  It’s going to be a year to celebrate!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
