Simple Stories Simple Vintage Winter Woods Mini Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I’m welcoming 2023 with this gorgeous Simple Stories Simple Vintage Winter Woods Mini Album Kit Reveal for the Button Farm Club. This is the Button Farm Club January Club Kit.

Did you all have a wonderful Christmas?  We did, but it came and went very quickly!  I had such a good time baking with my daughter and the Grandgirls, feasting at our Christmas gathering and enjoying my week off from work.  But the day after Christmas, I locked myself into the studio and went to work creating this lovely kit for the Button Farm Club. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Winter Woods Mini Album: A study in collage

Do you love to create paper collage as much as I do?  There’s something so satisfying about layering in bits and pieces of paper, images and embellishments.  It’s like telling a story with paper, and I am a fan.  So this mini album kit offers a lot of tips and techniques to help you master the art of layering paper pretties.

We will create all the fun flips, flaps and interactive elements that we love so much, of course.  But each of the 3 divider pages in this gorgeous album base is a study in collage.  It’s not as hard as it seems, and the results are stunning.

Another focus in this kit is learning how to create your own embellishments.

Don’t you love this wintry color palette?

Winter is the perfect time to cozy up and create a great big mini album!

Heart Eyes Card Kit Reveal

Simple Stories Heart Eyes Card Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in today to share the first look at this adorable Simple Stories Heart Eyes Card Kit with you.  It’s my Button Farm Club Quarterly Subscription kit for December 2022. Sometimes we can hit what I call the “post-holiday crafting slump”.  Does that ever happen to you?  Our crafty mojo drops down with the winter temperatures, and we need some fun, inspirational ideas to get us back into the creative swing of things.  Well, I designed this vibrant kit with that in mind, and I think you are really going to love it.  Let’s take a closer look at the fun projects in this kit, shall we?

Dimensional Loaded Envelope Tutorial

I love loaded envelopes, and I’ve been making them since I was about 6 years old.  Of course, I didn’t call them that back then, but that’s what they were.  Mom and Dad kept an office for our small town credit union in our home when I was growing up.  The office trash can was always filled with manila envelopes  (remember those?) and I used to fish them out, dress them up with cut out hearts or snowflakes or whatever the theme of the moment happened to be. Then I would fill them to the brim with little notes and drawings and my version of cards.

So when I entered the world of crafting, I fell in love with this concept all over again.  Some time ago, I figured out how to make the envelopes in 3-D.  You all fell in love with those projects and asked for a tutorial. But because the process was complicated and unpredictable, I never felt comfortable sharing it with you.  I kept working on the paper engineering, and earlier this year, I came up with such a simple way to make these delightful box-style envelopes, that I decided to include the design in one of my card kits.

Y’all, you are going to LOVE how easy it is to make the envelope base!  So that is why I made this the very first project in our December kit.  I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to share the design with you!

Shaker Envelope Easel Cards

No card kit is complete without a couple of cute shaker cards!  And y’all never seem to grow tired of making them!

Can you see the super cute sprinkles and candy hearts in the shaker window?  This view of the closed card makes it a bit easier to see, but the card actually does stand up like an easel for display.  What a bright spot of color to add to  your desk!

Slimline Card Folios

Slimline cards continue to be very popular, so I included a very pretty pair inside this card kit.  They are so easy to make, and the folio design inside the card is fun to open!

Loaded Front Pocket and Tag Cards

OK, y’all.  I do love a good pocket!  And if you can tuck a super cute lollipop rosette into the front pocket of a greeting card, I’m all in!

I’ll show you how easy it is to make these festive lollipop rosettes in the card kit tutorial.  They are such a great addition to a pocket card. Each of these top fold A2 cards has a fun tag and 3×4 card insert.  You’ll see how cute the inside is, too, when you make the kit!

Twist and Pop!

Some of you may have already seen this cutie on my Facebook or Instagram page.  Because I love pop-up cards, I try to include one in each card kit that we make. You’ll also learn how to make the really cute butterfly clothespin embellishments in this kit.

Fun Flip Folio

And because I know you love to make them, I’ve designed a brand new fun flip folio card for this sweet kit.

You will love how easy it is to create this folio base!

I predict it will become a staple in  your crafty toolbox!

Life Captured 2023 Folio Kit Reveal

Simple Stories Life Captured 2023 Folio Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in quickly on this December Monday Morning to share this Simple Stories Life Captured 2023 Folio Kit Reveal.  It’s my latest kit for The Button Farm Club, and I’m super excited about it!  These folios are just plain fun from the simple interactive design, to the fresh, cheery colors to the playful patterns and images.  I think you’re really going to enjoy this kit!

This will be another of my Quarterly Subscription Clubs. Each quarter of 2023, I’ll release a new trio of folios using Simple Stories Life Captured.  The first quarter ships this month (December) then we’ll send out the next kit in February, another in May, and the final kit in August of 2023.

Here’s a little peek at what comes in this first kit.  So many great papers and embellishments to play with!  You can get a closer look here:

Capturing All of Life’s Little Moments

Life is busy, and we don’t always have all the time we want or need to create.  So everything about this folio design is quick and easy!  My goal was to create a folio that you could re-create in an afternoon or less. If you’re new to making folios, this is a great tool to add to your crafting tool box.

But quick and easy does not mean boring!  There’s plenty of fun, interactive elements built into each 6 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ x 1/2″ folio.

One of the things I appreciate about this folio design is how great they will look lined up on a bookshelf.  They are all the same size and shape, and the colorful spines invite you to pull them off the shelf to see what’s inside.

I have plans to create a Storage Box kit after we’ve finished all the folios.  This will double as a home décor item, and will be separate from the folio kit. So stay tuned for that toward the end of 2023.

If you’d like to take a closer look at the folios, I hope you’ll enjoy this short YouTube Video Tour.

How to Order

The kits are available to order now on the Button Farm Club website.  You can learn how the subscription works HERE.

I think it’s going to be a very bright and cheerful year in 2023…and I know we are all ready for that!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamperia Classic Christmas Recipe Folio Kit Reveal

Stamperia Classic Christmas Recipe Folio Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  So many wonderful Christmas memories get cooked up in the kitchen, and this Stamperia Classic Recipe Folio Kit is the perfect way to capture them all.  Whether you are making a heritage recipe album, recording good times baking with your children or grandchildren, or simply want a bit of Christmas cheer in your kitchen, this folio fits the bill.

Stamperia Classic Christmas Recipe Folio Kit Reveal Button Farm Club Kathy Clement Kathy by Design

I designed this 8″ x 8″ hardcover tri-fold folio exclusively for The Button Farm Club. It’s a brand new folio design, and it’s loaded with room for recipes, memory keeping and photos.  From the adorable shaker cover to the amazing mechanisms tucked inside, I have to say this is one of my all time favorite creations. I hope you’ll feel that way about it, too!

Warm and Nostalgic

We’ve been through more chaos and stress these past few years than any of us ever signed up for.  So I wanted to create a warm and nostalgic recipe folio that would transport us all back to simpler, happier times.  Naturally, I looked to Stamperia’s gorgeous Classic Christmas collection to help me carry out this task.  It fairly oozes with Christmas joy and happiness.

A Peek Inside

You’ll find loads and loads of room for photos, journaling, and recipes inside this interactive folio.  I  love its Old World charm and classic Christmas color palette.

When it came to designing a spot for your treasured family recipes, I wanted you to be able to take them out of the folio.  So I created this clever pocket waterfall in the center panel of the album.  It is so easy to just pull the card out while you bake, then slide it back into the pocket when you are done.  And, each pocket will hold multiple recipe cards.

Flips, Flaps and Festive Features

Do you remember shaking the presents under the tree to try to figure out what was inside?  Christmas secrets are the very best secrets!  So I built several secret pockets, flips and flaps into the album design.  This pull out feature is so much fun to explore!

And just look at how beautiful these papers are!  This album will never go out of style!

If you’d like to join me for a little tour of this sweet Christmas album, you can meet me over on my YouTube channel.

 

All the supplies for the kit are in and Laura is ready to ship this out from The Button Farm Club.  This would be a really fun Christmas break activity with the kids, a super Christmas scrapping party for you and your fellow scrappers and an incredible Christmas gift for someone you love.  You can place your order today over at The Button Farm Club.

If you are still working on your Christmas cards, Laura still has a few of my Cosy Christmas Card Kits, and my new Evergreen & Holly Card Kit still in stock.

Once again, thank you all for your encouraging words and your support.  So many of you have asked me to do a retreat or classes.  I’m not much of a traveler, so these kits are my way of sharing my creative ideas with all of you.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
