RRR January Ribbon Club Blog Hop: Loads of Love Loaded Envelope

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the RRR January Ribbon Club Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is in the air!  And Really Reasonable Ribbon has the Sweetheart Ribbon Club Assortment to prove it!  Take a look:

Loads of Love Loaded Envelope with Cupid’s Sweetheart Café

The red ribbons in this assortment were the perfect pairings for this fun dimensional loaded envelope. Here’s how I put them to work:

A Peek Inside

Create a Ribbon Rosette Lollipop to tuck inside the envelope.  Top it with a Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Bow and a glittery gold Valentine heart.  I used a chopstick for the lollipop stem, wrapping it with Scor-Tape and more of the Red Plaid Satin Ribbon.

You just have to add a little love note to a Valentine, so I created this cute heart hot air balloon note card.

There’s room inside to say something sweet to someone you love.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has in store for you.  Finish up over on the RRR Blog where you can answer Bonnie’s question of the month, learn all the ribbon news, and be entered into the drawing for a FREE Sweetheart Ribbon Club Assortment.

Here’s the whole blog list, in case you get lost along the way:

My Sweet Slimline Accordion Folio Tutorial Part 2

Prima My Sweet Slimline Accordion Folio Tutorial Part 2 for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  I shared the first part of this Prima My Sweet Slimline Accordion Folio Tutorial with you in last week’s Throwback Thursday.  Today I’m back to finish things up.  Are you ready to get  your craft on?

Prima My Sweet Slimline Accordion Folio Tutorial by kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Throwback Thursday Photo 01

If you missed the first installment of this tutorial, you can get caught up by watching it here. This tutorial shows you how to build the folio base, line the pages, and decorate most of the inside pages.

Pop-Up Pages!

Prima My Sweet Accordion Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

This week we have some really fun pop up pages to create!  The first style of pop up page is this W-Fold mechanism.  This one is so easy to make that even if you have never done a pop up element before, you’ll be successful on your first try.

The second style of pop up is this fun twist and pop mechanism.  This is a little more work that the W-Fold.  A few years back I figured out a way to greatly simplify the process, and that video is still one of my most viewed tutorials on my YouTube channel.  I think you’re really going to enjoy adding it to a mini album base.

Cover Me!

Finally, we will build the collage style cover of the folio.

I had a very good time digging through my stash of charms, trims and embellishments.  Hopefully you have some goodies stashed away that you can use to dress up your folio cover.

If you don’t have this paper collection in your stash, you can still have fun with this tutorial.  Just substitute one of your favorite paper collections as you follow along with the step by step instructions.

Simple Stories Winter Woods Snowman

Simple Stories Winter Woods Wall Hanging Reneabouquets Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Simple Stories Winter Woods Snowman Home Décor & Another Giveaway

Hello, Friends!  This Simple Stories Winter Woods Snowman wall hanging makes me happy on so many levels.  First, it’s a snowman.  Can you really feel grumpy or out of sorts when you see a snowman?  I can’t!  Then, there’s the tutu trim.  I mean, people, it’s just too too much fun!  Throw in some beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon, gorgeous papers, stunning chipboard and a chippy white vintage hanger and I’m just happy all over.  How about you?

A Little Confession…..

Simple Stories-Winter Woods-Reneabouquets-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

I do have a little confession to make here.  When I was filming the video tutorial for my Winter Woods Mini Album Kit, I had a major technical malfunction.  I thought my phone was recording.  But my memory card was full…so while I cheerfully crafted and taught…nothing was being recorded.  Uh-oh.

And the nature of paper is that once you have used it…it can’t be used again.  Double uh-oh.

Thankfully, I had been given a gift certificate to Scrapbook.com for Christmas.  And because I loved this Winter Woods collection so much, I had purchased a few sheets for myself.  Also, the delivery came a week earlier than I had expected it.  So I had the papers in house to re-film the portion of the tutorial that didn’t record the first time.  Phew!

But then I was left with a duplicate page.  And that,  my friends, is how this sweet little wall hanging was born. I pulled things off, and glued more things on.  Then I stitched the revamped design onto a burlap panel and added a hanger.  How’s that for innovative thinking?

The Shaker Element

The main change was adding some gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon and this Reneabouquets Snowflake Shaker Box, flowers, tutu trim and printed beautiful board.

TIP: Create a frosted window in your shaker box with Dries Clear Adhesive and Glitter Glass.  It’s a little hard to see in the photo, but in real life, it shimmers just like snow!

TIP:  Nile Blue Crosshatch Satin Ribbon is a great color match for this paper collection.  I stitched it on at the top as a border, and I also layered it over White Satin Ribbon to form a fabric belly band.

I thought you might enjoy hearing how I got myself out of a paper fix.  Hope you enjoyed it!

10 Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway

Photoplay Cupid's Sweetheart Cafe Slimline Tea Party in a Box Card Tutorial, Reneabouquets, Kathy Clement, Kathy by Design, Photo 0110 Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway and Cupid’s Sweetheart Café Tea Party in a Box Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  This week I’m celebrating a major milestone with a 10 Year Blog Anniversary Giveaway!  On January 13, 2013, I took the plunge into blog land with my very first blog post. I knew absolutely nothing about blogging (except that I enjoyed reading blog posts from my favorite crafters).  My tech skills were pretty much non-existent.  But I had a strong desire to educate and inspire other crafters about the joys of working with paper. So I plunged in and have never looked back.

Ten years of blogging represents countless hours sitting in front of a screen tapping out posts, thousands of hours of behind the scenes editing photos, self-education, experimenting, picking up spilled buttons (and sequins and glitter, sadly!) and tens of thousands of hours of pure pleasure spent playing with paper.  A few of  you have been on this journey with me from the very beginning; some of  you have only recently discovered Kathy by Design. To all of you, a great big thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking this wild ride with me.  You are the best blog buddies out there, and I am thankful for the many meaningful online relationships forged because of this blog.

So, a giveaway seems to be in order.  Actually…more than one giveaway…but all will be revealed as the week goes on!  Let’s get down to business with today’s Make & Take Tuesday Tutorial, shall we?

Cupid’s Sweetheart Café Slimline Tea Party in a Box with Reneabouquets

Cupid's Sweetheart Cafe-Photoplay Paper-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

Valentine’s Day is coming up hard and fast, and PhotoPlay paper has released a gorgeous collection to help us celebrate.  The thing I love the most about Cupid’s Sweetheart Café (apart from the name) is the fact that this is so much more than just a Valentine’s Day collection.  So today I’m going to show you how to create a non-Valentine project with these pretty papers!

PhotoPlay Cupid's Sweetheart Cafe Tea party in a Box card tutorial by Kathy Clement

Of course, you could use this 4″ x 8 1/2″ Tea Party in a Box Shaker card as a Valentine if you wanted to.  But it also makes a lovely birthday, get well, or friendship card.  I’ve dressed up the paper collection with some beautiful roses, ribbons and Reneabouquets paper pretties.

I think you’ll enjoy the simple construction of the card cover.  I let the patterned papers, roses,  chippies and  shaker element do all the heavy lifting.  The tutorial shows you how to create the cut-away slimline card base.  I did not have time to do a tutorial for the inside of the card.  But, you can learn how to create all kinds of pockets, including box pockets,  in THIS Papercrafting 101 tutorial.

A Peek Inside

The inside of the card is so much fun with all the beautiful patterned papers.  And how do you feel about pink with red?  It’s not a color combo I use all the time, but it works here, I think.

This tea party in a box consists of a wrapped tea sachet, cookie treat, honey stick and a little sleeve of Dove chocolates.  It’s the perfect way to send a little love!
