Add Another Candle Birthday Folio

Add Another Candle Birthday Folio with Ribbon Closure

Hello, Friends!  If you’re a fan of vibrant color, you’re going to like this Add Another Candle Birthday Folio.  It’s like a surprise party on paper!  First, I created a simple folio base.  (You can find a tutorial for the base HERE.) Then I covered it with Photoplay’s festive Add Another Candle Paper Collection.  The finishing touch is a shimmering Tangerine Checkerboard Satin Ribbon Closure to tie everything together.

A Party on Paper

This project was a special order in my Etsy shop.  My client requested a bright, fun birthday folio with lots of charms and embellishments.  We can do that!  I really had fun putting the collage style cover on this festive folio.

TIP: Tuck tiny burlap string bows under your itty bitty floral arrangements.  The burlap string loops take the place of leaves.  And the bow draws the eye to the pretty flowers.

Top the spine of your folio with a Fuchsia, Orange and Lavender Check Bow.  Then dangle your charms below it.  This particular ribbon is a match made in heaven for this paper collection.

A Peek Inside

Every single page of this 4-fold folio is filled with fun.

From slash pockets to flip pages to hidden pages, there’s something exciting on every single page.

My client was very happy with her special order folio.  I felt energized and happy the entire time I was working on it, too.  These bold colors added extra zest to the creative process!

Taperlogy Autumn Butterflies Collage Card

Taperlogy Autumn Butterflies Collage Card

Hello, Friends! A few weeks ago I shared this Taperlogy unboxing video on my YouTube Channel.  My fingers have been itching to get into all those paper pretties.  Yesterday I finally carved out a few spare minutes to go through the box again and plan a project.  I did not have enough time to make a junk journal, but I did manage to put together this pretty Autumn Butterfly Collage Card.  All the papers, embellishments and trims (except the key and the flowers) came out of that amazing box.

Lots of Layers

Taperlogy Autumn Butterflies Note Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 02

Layer after layer of paper goodness can be found on this card.  Here are a few tips that I learned while working with the Taperlogy products.

  • First, trim two of the Jidan Specialty Papers to a width of 4 7/8″.  Place one on the top of your card base and one on the bottom to cover the 5×7 area and still leave a border.
  • Next, stitch around the edges and add a lace border from the Naili Laces Frames Material Pack.  Save the small off-cut piece of lace as we will use it later.
  • Now, adhere a coffee dyed doily from the Jelan Junk Journal Pack in the upper left hand section of the card base.
  • Then adhere the gold foil bird ticket ephemera from the Danta Junk Journal Mystery Pack.
  • Now add florals from the Chado Flower Sticker Pack.  These are translucent, so they layer nicely over the lower layers.
  • Remove the jute string and fiber from the packing envelopes and wrap the center of the card where the two patterned papers met.  Tie on a copper key as an embellishment.
Autumn Butterflies

Select a Dentu Sticker Frame sticker frame for the bottom of the card.  Remove the center and then select a large Holu Butterfly to fill it.  Adhere the saved bit of lace below the butterfly to add a pop of color and texture.

All that remains now is to add a few buttons and petite flowers to finish off the card.  Or, keep the panel and use it later as a cover on a junk journal.  I’m writing a note to a dear friend inside my card.

If you’d like to see more of the goodies that came in my box, you can review the YouTube video or visit my page at Taperlogy.

Taperlogy has been kind enough to issue a special discount code for my friends.  Use the code KATHY15 to save 15% on your entire shopping cart with no minimum order. I do not receive any commission on these sales.  I’m just sharing the code and the information with y’all because I know some of you love to make junk journals.

I enjoyed my “play day” in the studio, and I  hope you enjoyed the fruits of my labors.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Graphic 45 October Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial

Graphic 45 October Time to Flourish Desk Folio Reneabouquets Butterflies Darla the Witch by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

Graphic 45 October Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial with Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!   Well, it’s time to make our Graphic 45 October Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial.  This month’s folio is too cute to spook with cute Halloween images and lovely fall florals.  If you’ve just discovered this year-long Throwback Thursday series, you can find out how to make the first 9 folios HERE.

The star of the show this month is Darla, the cutest little witch you’ve ever seen!  She’s sitting on a pumpkin in the middle of the flower patch,  trying to figure out who she’ll be for Halloween.  Silly girl!

You just have to add a dangle charm to an October desk folio!  So I grouped together a pumpkin and a word token with this fabulous steampunk key.

What’s Inside?

The brake for this easel card is actually a pocket.  And if you have a pocket, you have to put something in it, right?

So we stirred up some special Halloween goodies to go inside our pocket this month.  You’ll learn how to make them in the video tutorial below.

Hidden Pocket!

Just a like a good mystery novel, there’s a hidden compartment tucked beneath this easel card folio!  The hidden pocket holds another interactive folio.

You’ll find another treat-filled pocket inside!

And a fun little flip page, too!

If you’d like to see all the details of this desk folio and learn how to make your own, please enjoy this video tutorial.

 

It’s hard to believe that we are getting close to the end of this year-long series.  I’ll have to start thinking about what kind of series to share with you in 2023!  Any thoughts?

This 6×6 shaker folio cover features novelty buttons from Buttons Galore & More and an altered Beautiful Board frame from Reneabouquets. I’ll be sure to link all the products in the supply list below this post.

Top the Baker’s Twine Trim with some spook-tacular Halloween charms for the perfect finishing touch.

Don’t you just love this Halloween stripe pattern on the back cover?  This finishes our tour of the outside of this little folio.   Do you dare take a peek inside?  Follow me!

A Peek Inside

Each folio in this year-long series follows the same basic layout and design.  If you’re new to the series, you can get caught up on the previous 9 folios HERE.

I did change up the design a little bit this month, because the images on the Cards page are laid out differently.  So you’ll learn how to make some new mini-folio inserts this go round.

The center pocket is as stuffed as a Trick or Treat bag at the end of the night!

Only these treats won’t cause any cavities!

Photoplay October Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial on YouTube

If you’d like to follow along and see how quick and easy it is to make this month’s folio, please enjoy the video tutorial on YouTube.

Only two folios left to go, my friends, then we’ll have the complete series all wrapped up.  I’ve really enjoyed sharing these with you, and I hope you’ve enjoyed them, too.

Remember: even if you are not a “gnome person” you can use the basic folio tutorial with any paper or theme you like.  It’s such a versatile and easy folio to make that I know I’ll keep on using it as time goes on.
