Button Farm Club Simple Stories Celebrate Kinetic Birthday Card Kit Kathy Clement

Introducing the Button Farm Club Celebrate Kinetic Birthday Card Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  Get ready to party, because today I’m introducing my Button Farm Club Celebrate Kinetic Birthday Card Kit Release!  Oh, yes, my friends!  Cue the confetti, frost the cupcakes and put on your crafting shoes, because this kit is one of the most exciting projects I’ve taken on to date!

It seems no matter how many cards I make, I always need more birthday cards!  Is the same true for you?  So I decided it would be a blast to create a kinetic card kit (think moving parts).  And how about a card kit with cards that would work for everybody on your birthday card list?  So I put together this fabulous kit with cards for guys, cards for the ladies, cards for teens and even cards for kids.

Cards for Guys

Let’s face it: guys are hard to make cards for most of the time.  But these clean and simple cards even got two thumbs up from my sweet hubby!  See, he loves cards that have moving parts. These bold cards are not as basic as they seem at first glance.  Take a look…

Oh, yeah!  a little pop up action will have the recipient opening and closing over and over again!  These cards would also be great for teen boys.

Make Mine a Triple Layer Cake, Please!

Remember the old TV bits where a girl would pop out of a cake?  Well, these Triple Layer Cake Cards have a cake that pops out of the card!  How’s that for fun?

In fact, these cards are so much fun to make, I had to put two of them into the kit!

I think these cards are fun for kids of all ages, but I can see young girls liking them a lot!

Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On!

Y’all know how much I enjoy a good shaker card!  There’s just something about all those sparkly bits dancing around inside a frame…and the sound of them moving that makes me feel happy all over.  So I have included SIX..count ’em…SIX shaker cards in this kit!  That’s a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on!

This double frame photo card is perfect for a graduate, teacher or coach.

And what feels more like a party than balloons, cake and rosettes?

Cake and cupcakes anyone?

Oh, yes…please do let there be cake!

Well, it sure looks like a party, doesn’t it?  Each of these cards has a gift card pocket inside, too.

Pop-Up Birthday Cake Wiper Card

Wait until you see this one in action in the video below.  I could NOT stop playing with this card.  It doubles nicely as a toy for the easily entertained!

Birthday Party Photo Folio

Birthday parties create lots and lots of memories.  And this One Sheet Wonder has room for lots and lots of photos so those memories don’t get lost!

With journaling cards and tags, interactive pages and hidden pockets, this little gem is worth its weight in birthday cake! You’ll get to see all the fun details in the video below.

Hello, Friends!  Well, if you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to this week, I’ve been busy putting together this Simple Stories Indigo Garden Card Kit for Button Farm Club! What a delightful way to spend my time!  This paper collection is pure gorgeous.  And I had so much fun thinking of special cards, folios, and even a little home décor piece to add to this kit.

Fabulous Card Folios

First up is this “One Sheet Wonder” . You are going to love how delightfully simple it is to make. I think you will find lots of ways to use the basic folio design in your everyday crafting.

But “simple” doesn’t mean “boring”!  This little 4 page folio is filled with pockets, hidden pockets, flap pages and even a waterfall feature.  With room for journaling and lots of photos, I think it’s a terrific design.

Indigo Garden Shaker Slimline Card by Kathy Clement

This shaker slimline card folio is a promise kept!  So many of you asked me to create a tutorial for this box pocket style folio that I decided to add it to a card kit.

 It’s easier to make that you might think…and oh, so pretty!

Shakers and Fancy Fold Cards

My first thought in designing this card kit was about all the special occasions that take place during the spring months.  So I loaded this kit up with folios and cards that would be suitable for Easter, Mother’s Day, Graduation, and birthdays.

Nothing beats a good fancy fold card!  And this design turned out to be so good that I just had to make two of them!

Simple Stories Indigo Garden Tag & Pocket Card by Kathy Clement

Pockets make me happy!  So I had to include a fun fold pocket & tag card design in the kit.

Rosettes always make me think of pretty party dresses!  And you’ll learn how to make them without using a die in this tutorial.

Simple Stories Indigo Garden Z-Fold Pop Up Card

I love fancy fold cards, don’t you?  But when you can combine a fancy fold card with a pop-up card, then I’m extra happy!

A Little Home Décor Action

This is the time of year when school pictures come out.  How fun will it be to tuck a sweet photo into this easel style display frame?  It’s just the right size to keep on a desk or a side table.

Easy to Make and Easy to Mail

Every card kit needs at least a couple of quick and easy to make and mail cards.

The handy box pocket holds two mini folios as well as some mighty cute tags.

Stamperia Sweety Treat Tags Creativity Kit Reveal

Stamperia Sweety Treat Tags Creativity Kit Release for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I have been patiently waiting to share this Stamperia Sweety Treat Tags Creativity Kit with you, and today is the big day!  Hooray!  This treat tag and interactive card kit is my late4st release for The Button Farm Club.  It’s been weeks and weeks since I started the plan for this kit.  But I finally was able to bring this idea to life and I am so happy with the way it turned out.

Sweety Treat Tag Kit by Kathy Clement Photo 01

The idea was to create a kit that would work for Valentine’s Day or Birthdays, or any occasion when you wanted to send someone a special little gift.  The kit contains 6 pocket-style treat tags dressed up for a party with Stamperia’s darling Sweety collection.

Sweety Treat Tags with Tea Party in a Box by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Each little treat tag holds one of my signature Tea Party in a Box surprises.  The kit comes with all the goodies for the box: individually wrapped tea bag, Ghirardelli Chocolate, Biscoff Cookies, Honey Stick, and a Mini Tasting Spoon.  We dress them up with designer papers, then add in a darling little tag and mini note card to sweeten the deal.

Can you see how much fun these will be to give as gifts?  Or, dress up the table setting at a tea party or birthday party?

Interactive Cards

The kit also contains supplies and instructions for these interactive cards.  Although these cards look complicated to make, the process is actually quite simple when broken down into steps.

This clever Kinetic Waterfall Card is a prime example: once you learn how simple it is to create the waterfall mechanism, you’ll be able to add a fun element to future cards.

The interior of all the cards is fully decorated, too.  Naturally, you’ll find a pocket, because that is how I roll!

Stamperia Sweety Pop Up Card by Kathy Clement PHoto 01

This stack of teacups makes my tea loving heart happy all by itself.

But when you open the card to find this pop up feature…well, I’m over the moon!

The tutorials in this kit contain simple, sneaky tricks that I’ve learned in my card making journey.  These techniques will help you make the most of your papers, elevate your card designs and help you gain skill and confidence.

Fun fold cards are aptly named because they are so rewarding and enjoyable to make.

This fancy flap card is just loaded with sweet surprises!  You can see them all in the video tour below.

Stamperia Through the Looking Glass Card Kit

Stamperia Through the Looking Glass Card Kit Release for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  If you’re experiencing the “after Christmas Blues,” maybe this Stamperia Through the Looking Glass Card Kit Release will bring a smile to your face.  This is one of the most whimsical, innovative card kits I’ve designed to date, and here are some reasons why.

Stamperia Alice Through the Looking Glass Card kit by Kathy Clement Photo 01

  • First, the cards, tags and folios are designed to be easier to mail.  Many of you had mentioned that you would like to have “flatter” cards that would require less postage to send.
  • Next, although the cards are not as thick and heavy as some from previous kits, that does not mean that they are boring or ordinary.  Quite the contrary! Each project in this kit either shakes, pops up, stands up, or has a surprise element.  In short, they are fun to make and exciting to open.
  • Thirdly, this paper collection had me laughing out loud the whole time I was at work designing the kit.  The colors and images are simply magical.
  • Finally, you’ll be adding loads of tricks and techniques to your card making repertoire.  Some of these designs are addictive…and much easier to make than you might think.

Take a look:

You will learn how to build a scene with the die cuts and fussy cuts from the kit.

Then we’ll take that scenic card to the next level by adding a pop up mechanism and gift card pocket to the inside.

I even managed to create a masculine card for this kit!

How fun is that?

Through the Looking Glass Story Book

Since this is just a sneak peek post, I won’t share everything from the kit here.  But I have to show you my favorite creation: A Through the Looking Glass Story Book Folio.

Now you all know how much I love moving parts, flips, flaps and surprises.  But I think that I outdid myself with this little story book.  Every page is an adventure waiting to happen!

I walk you through the folio in the video below, but I just had to share this fun pop up page with you.  If you’d like to see more, please enjoy the short reveal video below.
