How do you feel about tea parties?  Fancy teacups?  Pink buttons?  Oh, yes, please!  Sign me up!

A Peek Inside

I’ve added some fun features inside the folio, too.  There are gatefold pages with room for large photos and journaling.

You’ll have to watch the video to see what’s waiting for you behind this string tie closure!

Little surprises are tucked in everywhere.  Seriously, my friends…I had the best time designing this charming little ditty!

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
  • Gold Foil With Love Ephemera Pack
  • Prima Flowers
  • 6 Sheets 12×12 cream cardstock
  • 10 sheets 8 ½” x 11 Tea Party Pink Cardstock
  • 3 silver tone tea charms: teacup, teapot and fancy teaspoon
  • 10 yards crochet thread
  • 1 yard each Aqua Stripe and Pink Stripe Ribbon from May Arts
  • Package of Pink Buttons
  • 3 pink heart stick pins
  • Basic Written Guide (14 pages!) with full-color detail photos
  • Access to private, step by step video tutorials

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,

kathy

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!

Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Release

Authentique Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Authentique Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  Oh what fun to share this Snowfall interactive Folio Kit Reveal with you!  If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you already know how much I enjoy designing and creating folios with flips, flaps, pockets and surprises tucked inside.  This Authentique Snowfall folio ticks all those boxes.  The cover sparkles like freshly fallen snow.  The interior mechanisms are more fun than a toboggan ride down a big winter hill!  Let’s take a peek, shall we?

First, lets talk about the basics.  Measuring 7″ x 7″  with 1/2″ spines on the left and right hand sides, it’s not too big and not too small.

Then I layered up the gorgeous patterned papers with sparkling Little Birdie Flowers, a glittery snowflake, vintage black buttons, and the cutest little winter charms.  The vintage style images in this collection are nostalgic and heart warming.  Don’t you just love them?

Next, just for fun,   I designed the folio with a wide belly band.  This doubles as the cover art.  But it also makes me think of a  high end slip cased book.  You can actually add your first winter photo to the folio cover.

Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Reveal: The Moving Parts

I’ve prepared a little video tour of the album for you so you can really see all the wonderful moving parts.  But I thought I’d also share a few beauty shots.  The inside front cover, for instance, is a big slash pocket with 6×6 photo mats tucked inside.

How fun is this mini accordion folio that’s tucked into the calendar pocket on the slash pocket?  If one pocket is good…two is better, right?

The folio tutorial is filled to the brim with great techniques that you will be able to transfer to all your papercrafting adventures.  And, once you learn how to build the folio base, you can easily create it in any color or style or theme.  That’s one of the things I love about providing you with a “made from scratch” kit like this one.

Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Reveal Video

Here’s a guided tour through the supplies in the kit and all the wonderful folio elements in this release.

 

What Comes in the Kit?

Like all the kits I put together for The Button Farm Club, this one is loaded!  You will receive everything you need to complete this project in the kit.  The only additional supplies are your basic crafting tools and the adhesive of your choice.

  • (2) 12” x 18” sheets of heavy black cardstock
  • (1) 12×12 image sheet of Authentique Snowfall
  • (14) 12×12 sheets of Snowfall patterned papers
  • 12×12 cardstock die cut elements sheet
  • Little Birdie Flowers
  • 2 yards of 3/8” wide gray gingham ribbon
  • a sparkly silver snowflake
  • 3 yards of silver metallic string
  • 9 silver tone winter charms (Let it Snow, Snowman, Snowflakes)
  • 20 jet black buttons in a mix of sizes
  • (2) color matched sheets of Spectrum 12×12 Cardstock
  • Basic written guide in PDF format
  • Private links to detailed, step by step video tutorial

Once again, Laura has worked her magic and is making the kit available for only $42.99.   You would have a very hard time buying the individual supplies for that price.  And then you get the printed guide and video tutorials in addition.  It’s a great value!

So get ready to capture all the beauty and wonder of winter in this darling Snowfall Folio Kit from The Button Farm Club. All the supplies are in stock, so this kit will ship out quickly.  While winter is blustering outside your door, you’ll be tucked up all warm and cozy inside.  Crafting makes the short winter days feel sunny and pass quickly!

You can order your Snowfall kit HERE.

As always, I am humbled and grateful for your amazing enthusiasm over these kits.  It makes me happy to know that you enjoy making them as much as I enjoy designing and creating them.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Happy World Card Making Day Giveaway!

Happy World Card Making Day Giveaway!  Brand New Button Farm Card Club Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to my Happy World Card Making Day Giveaway and Button Farm Card Club Kit Reveal!  As an avid cardmaker, I love this day dedicated to the creative pursuit of the handmade card.  What could be a more perfect time to reveal my latest Button Farm  Card Club Kit?  This quarter we are celebrating the glorious colors and patterns of autumn with Authentique Paper’s vibrant Splendor Paper Collection.

 

Lots and Lots and Lots of Cards for World Card Making Day

I’ve put together a wonderful assortment of greeting card designs for this kit.  Here’s a peek at the different styles we’ll be making this quarter.

Sunflowers!  My favorite bloom!  So we’ll be making these cheery sunflower shaker cards.

Designing these Buckle and Flap cards was so much fun!  Wait ’til you see how they function in the reveal video below.

I can see about a dozen different ways to use these “Party in a Box” Pocket Cards.  You can customize these by adding your favorite treats and wee gifts to the box pocket.  How fun is that?

You’ll “Fall” in love with these Slimline Belly Band Cards.

Do you know what happens when you take a standard 4×6 card base and score it in a unique way?  You get a trio of totally adorable Tab Top Card Folios.  These would make wonderful place cards on your Thanksgiving table, too!

Good things come in small packages.  And these darling Tag Shaped Pocket cards are really good!  You get a fussy cutting tutorial when we make these sweet cards.

This Sunburst Thanksgiving Card might just be my favorite of all the designs in this kit.  For one thing, it’s just as cute as it can be.  For another, the design is a great way to use up all those pretty little scraps of your designer paper.

And you knew I would have to include a card folio, didn’t you?  This trifold design has a lovely hidden pocket panel inside as well as lots of room for fall photos.

That’s a total of 15 cards and 8 unique card designs!  And once you learn how to make these card bases, you’ll have that knowledge locked up in your crafty toolbox to use over and over again.
