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.

  • 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.

Introducing Year with My Gnomies 2022 Kit

Introducing Year With My Gnomies 2022 Kit for Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  We could all use a little sunshine and cheer in 2022, so I’m excited to introduce you to my Year With My Gnomies 2022 Quarterly Subscription Kit for the Button Farm Club!  This adorable memory keeping system is bound to bring a smile to your face every single day in the new year!  We did a similar “through the year” subscription kit in 2020, and you all loved it so much that you begged me to do another one.  But we had to wait for the right paper collection to come along.  Well, this year it did!  Can you say “GNOMES?”

A Year with a Box Full of Gnomes!

Get ready for a year full of fun as we make a new folio for each quarter of the year in 2022.  You’ll end up with four adorable folios and a handsome storage box that you’ll be proud to display.

This December kit comes with everything you need to make the storage box as well as the January, February, March trifold folio.  And boy, is it ever cute!

Each 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ folio focuses on the antics of our gnome buddies.  The spine will feature charms that match each season.  In January-March we have a snowflake, a pretty little heart and a shamrock charm dangle on the spine.

Interactive Pages
A Year With My Gnomies Quarterly Subscription Kit for The Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement

Y’all know how much II love interactive elements in a folio or album.  Well, I think I might have outdone myself in the design of this folio.  It is loaded with all kinds of pockets, flips, flaps, pull outs and surprises.

And all the papers and images are so bright and cheery!

The folio has a section for each month plus a storage pocket for the monthly calendars.

Fill in the calendars with the dates.  Then write down birthdays, anniversaries, appointments, phone numbers or addresses on the back side.

Flips and Flaps

The mechanisms for each month are unique to that month.  February is loaded with flips and flaps.

March features some fun surprise pockets and the cutest Leprechaun Gnomes ever!

Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  This Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release might look a bit familiar to some of you.  That’s because I created this project for my Christmas In July week.  So many of you asked me for a tutorial that I decided to get Button Farm to put together a kit with all the supplies and instructions for you.  I think the version created for the kit came out even better than the original designYou’ll love displaying this 4” x 4” x 4 1/4” decorative box on your holiday table, work desk or mantel.

North Pole Trading Co. Exploding Mini Album Kit Release by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club Photo 01

The magnetic North Pole Tree Topper glistens with sparkling gold Christmas trees, a shiny ornament and a snow-topped wood slice.  The removable tree topper offers display options, too.  You can set it beside the album to create a festive holiday scene, and take it off when it comes time to store the album away.

Each of the 4 sides is fully decorated so that you can turn the box and display a different scene as you count down each week in December. 

Sweet Treats Inside

Everyone loves a little sweet treat at the holidays.  So the center panel of the album is a clear acetate box filled to the brim with 25 mini candy canes. We added one for each day to make the wait for Santa just a little bit sweeter.

The interactive album inside the box has room for more than 2 dozen photos, journaling cards, and pockets.

North Pole Gift Cards

And if gift cards are what’s in Santa’s sack this year, you will love making a set of 5 quick and easy to mail gift card holders. They are such a great way to personalize and dress up a monetary gift.  Best of all, even after you finish the exploding mini album and the card set, you’ll still have a nice stack of papers left over.  Make additional gift card holders, or turn them into a festive banner or folio.

Cosy Winter Christmas Card Kit for The Button Farm Club

Button Farm Club Cosy Winter Christmas Card Kit by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Button Farm Club Cosy Winter Christmas Card Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  It’s the perfect time to reveal this Button Farm Club Cosy Winter Christmas Card KitFragrant evergreen boughs, crackling fireplaces, and tantalizing brown paper packages tied up with string are some of my favorite things about Christmas!  This Quarterly Card Subscription Club, this captures all the charm, beauty and nostalgia of a family Christmas celebrated in a snug little cabin in the woods. Rusty jingle bells, wood buttons and rusted embellishments add to that cozy cabin  feel. 

Snowman Shaker Cards

Snowmen, anyone? Let’s create two darling snowman shaker cards to get the party started.

Fancy Fold Cards

Fancy fold cards are just plain fun to  make and exciting to receive.  Best of all, they fold flat for easy mailing!   This clever design offers a gift card pocket and a little sentiment panel for your personal greeting.

I could have called this kit “adventures in Fancy Fold Cards because we make so many different kinds.

Don’t you love this paper collection?  Adding in some rusty embellishments and wooden buttons really amps up the home in the woods vibe.

And you knew there had to be an easel card in this kit somewhere, didn’t you?

Brag Book or Stocking Stuffer?  You choose!

Itty bitty packages hold big time appeal for me.  This darling 3 1/2″ pocket and tag folio is small in size, but big on interactive elements.

You could easily turn this into a brag book for a distant grandparent, auntie or uncle.  But it would also make a fantastic stocking stuffer, mini December Daily or gift card holder!

I may have gone a little overboard with all the flips, flaps, pockets and pull outs in this tiny treasure.  And you will be thrilled with how easy it is to  make!

Slimline and Easy to Mail Cards

Because it is Christmas, and I know you will want to mail some of these cards to friends and family, I tried to include a few simple to make/easy to mail cards in this kit.

We opted for “flatter” embellishments, smaller bows and no dimensional flowers on these cards.  But that does not mean boring!  You can fold this easel card flat for mailing, but it has loads of dimension when you stand it upright!

And I love the sweet simplicity of this card design!

The Card Folio

Because y’all have told me how much you love making card folios, I was sure to include one in this kit.  As a bonus, it has a shaker pouch on the cover.

Trust me…there’s plenty of fun tucked inside this easy to make design!

We clean up our scraps with these two darling gift tags.  Imagine how cute these will be tied onto a cookie plate or loaf of homemade bread.

Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit Reveal

Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit for The Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  If you have precious memories of your grandmother’s country kitchen, then I think you are going to fall in love with this Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club.  If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, and what I’ve been up to, well…here it is.  This is the largest, most involved kit I’ve put together for The Button Farm Club to date.  The planning for this beauty began back in January, if you can believe that!  But I think all the time and effort paid off, because I love the way this charming project turned out.

Farmhouse Bread Box

This adorable “made from scratch” bread box is the centerpiece of the kit.  I don’t know about you, but this one takes me right back to my Grammy’s country kitchen.  You could always count on finding something delicious tucked into her bread box!

The Farmhouse vibe comes through loud and clear in the colors, patterns and images found in Simple Stories Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection.

The theme of the collection lends itself perfectly to a recipe album, garden journal or heritage style album.  And you all know how much I love a project that doubles as home decor!

The Mini Album

Here’s the sweet treat hiding inside that country bread box.  It’s a 6×6 mini album done up in Farmhouse style.  You learn how to build the tri-fold album base in the tutorial that comes with the kit.  So once you’ve built it the first time, you can make it again and again for any theme and with any paper collection you want to use.

I just love the colors and images in this collection!

And just look at these darling charms!

A Peek Inside

The trifold album is built with loads of room for recipes, 3×5 recipe cards, photos and journaling.

You’ll learn how to add all kinds of interactive features to the album, too!

The back cover houses a dandy accordion pull out folio all decked out with gorgeous papers and images from the kit.

You know how much I love to share ways to make creative use of scraps.  This tutorial will give you lots and lots of delightful ideas for cleaning up bits and bobs of the paper collection.

The Recipe Card Envelopes

You’ll also learn how to make these clever 6 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ envelopes to house larger recipe cards.  These tuck neatly inside the front flap of the bread box.  The box also houses the mini album, isn’t that handy?

YouTube Video Tour

You can see all the kit contents and take a tour of the finished project kit here.

What Comes in the Kit

Each kit comes with everything you need beyond basic crafting supplies like adhesive, cutting tools and measuring tools.  

Here’s what comes in your Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Recipe Album Kit:

  • Simple Stories Vintage Farmhouse Garden 12×12 Collection Kit ( 12 double sided pages plus the 12×12 cardstock sticker sheet.)
  • 4 additional sheets of 12×12 Farmhouse Garden paper
  • Farmhouse Garden 12×12 Solids Paper Pack (6 color matched sheets)
  • Ephemera Bits with 44 pieces
  • Ephemera Bits and Pieces with 64 pieces
  • Farmhouse Garden Adhesive Brads
  • 10 sheets of 8 ½” x 11” black cardstock
  • 3 sheets of 12×12 chipboard
  • 2 yards of Peacock Seam Binding Ribbon
  • 1 yard of 1 ½” wide black gingham ribbon
  • 3 yards of black and white Baker’s Twine
  • 3 silver tone farmhouse charms (mix and match)
  • Little Birdie Joanna Flowers
  • Basic Written Guide in PDF format with full color pictures
  • Links to Step by Step Video Tutorials

Once again, Laura has worked her magic to make this huge kit amazingly affordable.  The price is $65.45.  You would find it very hard to buy all the elements in this kit for that price.  And on top of the supplies you get the video and written tutorials!

This is a limited edition kit, shipped first come/first served.  The last time I did a recipe album, it sold out in a day.  So you might want to jump on this one.  I think it will make an amazing Christmas gift!

Order your kit here.

As always, I humbly thank you for your enthusiastic interest and support of these kits.  I have such fun planning and designing them.  And you seem to be enjoying them, too.

Now I need to go clean my house and do the laundry!
