Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal

Button Farm Club Prima My Sweet Card Kit Reveal by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends! Today I’m celebrating this Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal.  Believe it or not, the plans for this kit started back in January of this year!  Weeks and months go by as I search high and low to find just the right  papers, trims, and embellishments to make my Button Farm Club Kits special.  Then I go to work on the actual designs,  I have a sketchbook where card designs are roughed out, paper use is planned and ideas are formed.  Paper scraps were flying in the studio last week!   Each kit takes 40-60 hours to create, film and edit.  So when I finally get to create the elements and release the kit for you to enjoy, I feel like throwing a party!

Shabby Chic Sewing Themed Goodness

Y’all know how much I love vintage buttons.  So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw the preview for this shabby chic sewing themed paper collection.  Vintage button cards?  Yes, please!

And how fun is this pop up card?  You’ll want to make a stack of them once you learn how!

Look how sweet and soft this vellum shaker card is.  So perfect for a summer wedding or birthday!

I know how much you love a good fancy fold card design, so I had to add these sweet cards to the mix.

The colors and patterns in this paper collection are so beautiful!

We keep things “on trend” with a botanical slimline card design.

Buttons, buttons and more buttons!

This pair of easel cards double as craft room décor.  And look at that darling sewing machine charm!

One of my favorite things about these kits is sharing my best tips for using your scraps in creative and unexpected ways.

My Sweet Flip Folio

Because you have told me how much you enjoy making a little folio along with the cards, I designed a brand new flip folio with a belly band for this kit.

Once you learn how to make this folio, you can change up the papers and make it for any theme or occasion.

Here’s a sneaky peek at a couple of my favorite elements from this folio design.

You can see the entire folio in the video reveal below.

Why I Make these Kits

So many of you have asked me to travel and do classes.  These Button Farm Club Kits give you the opportunity to take an online class with step by step instructions.  The video format allows you to watch over and over again at times that are convenient for you.  You can even watch in your pajamas!  I’ll never tell!

As always, I thank you from the tips of my crafty little fingers for your enthusiastic support for these Quarterly Card Club Kits.  The next Club Kit comes out in September, and it will feature a gorgeous Christmas Card kit that I think you will really love.

Next month, I have a really fun kit planned that will find us cooking up a delightful farmhouse themed project.  I can’t wait to share it with you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Button Farm Club Patriotic Celebration Kit Reveal

Carta Bella God Bless America Patriotic Celebration Kit by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Button Farm Club Patriotic Celebration Kit Reveal with Carta Bella God Bless America

Hello, Friends!  Memorial Day seems like the perfect date to share this Button Farm Club Patriotic Celebration Kit Reveal.  Happy Memorial Day, my friends!  How thankful I am for all the selfless men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.  We owe them a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.  Today we pause to remember them all, and then we enjoy the liberty they fought for as we gather with our friends, neighbors and families to celebrate the Red, White and Blue!

God Bless America!

I’ve been planning this kit since the end of December 2020!  The minute I saw Carta Bella’s God Bless America collection, I  knew I wanted to use it to help usher in Memorial Day, Flag Day and the 4th of July.  If you love the Red, White and Blue…as I do…and you are a fan of Vintage Americana, then I think you are going to love this kit.  It’s one of the best I’ve created thus far for Button Farm Club.  It’s got a little bit of everything in it: Mini Album, Home Decor, Memory Keeping and even a couple of cards and tags.

The anchor of this kit is this vibrant 6″ x 9″ mini album.  It’s not just a great place to keep all those wonderful family photos from summer fun; it doubles as home décor!  The dimensional cover features this fabulous vintage fire engine, handmade rosettes and handmade mini pinwheels.  And of course, the tutorial shows you how easy it is to make those handmade embellishments.

But just like a great fireworks display, this album has some unexpected delights.

Red, White and Blue Banner

I thought to myself…”How fun would it be to build a box pocket mini album with a red, white and blue banner tucked inside?”  So I did it!  And I ‘m so glad I did!

The mini album also has loads of room for photos and journaling thanks to a flip page/pocket/waterfall feature.

The Exploding Box

Every great 4th of July celebration includes fireworks.  So I build an exploding box mini album into this kit.

Thanks to all the flips and flaps inside this clever little box, you’ll find even more room to add photos of your family celebrations.

Patriotic Cards

Even after creating all these wonderful kit elements, I found enough paper to create a couple of beautiful patriotic cards.  So I added a special bonus tutorial showing you how to make them along with a set of sweet little red, white and blue tags.

When you put this whole ensemble on display together , it makes a real visual impact.  I have it on display in my studio right now, and I just love it!

What Comes in the Kit

Everything you need to make the items seen here comes in your kit.  Just add basic crafting supplies like adhesives and tools like scissors, paper trimmers, and scoreboard.  (If you decide to make the bonus cards, you will need to add 2 sheets of 8 ½” x 11” cream cardstock to the kit supplies. )

Kit supplies:

  • Carta Bella God Bless America 12×12 Collection Kit (comes with stickers) 12 sheets of double-sided textured cardstock
  • 2 additional sheets of God Bless America cardstock
  • God Bless America Solids: 6 sheets of color-matched textured cardstock
  • Frames and Tags Ephemera Pack
  • God Bless America Ephemera Pack
  • Enameled Patriotic Charms (2 per kit)
  • 2 yards Red Lipstick Ribbon
  • 1 yard each red, white and blue burlap string
  • 12×12 chipboard sheet for making the album base
  • Little Birdie Flowers
  • Basic Written Guide
  • Private Links to Video Tutorials that you can watch over and over again
How to Order

The price for the kit is only $49.49!  I can’t even believe that!  You can order your kit today at The Button Farm Club.

If you’d like to see this kit in action, please enjoy this 10 minute video tour.

Ok, my friends!  That’s it for me!  I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day, and take a moment to give thanks for the fact that we live in the Home of the Free because of the Brave!

God Bless America!

Cheerio,

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.

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.

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

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!
