Life Captured 3rd Quarter Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  Just popping in quickly today to share my Life Captured 3rd Quarter Kit Reveal with you. We created the January, February and March folios for The Button Farm Club back in December  2022.  Then in February we released the April, May and June folios.  Now we are headed full on into the summer months with the July, August and September release.  This year is passing by very quickly!

Life Captured July Folio: Watermelon Colors!

Is there anything more refreshing than a sweet slice of watermelon on a hot July day?  That’s what the vibrant colors of the July folio makes me think of.

Here’s a peek inside this fresh, fun folio design.

Life Captured August: Sherbet Colors!

The August folio has a back to school theme done up in the colors of sweet orange, lime and raspberry sherbet!  Just the thing to cool off the dog days of August.

Here’s a peek inside this jam-packed folio.  You’ll get a closer look in the reveal video below.

September Life Captured Folio

Hello, Autumn!  This colorful folio sets the stage for the arrival of fall with a cute vintage pickup truck filled to the brim with pumpkins in all shapes and sizes.

Filled with all kinds of room for photos, journaling, or receipts, these folios are great for documenting your memories.  They can also serve as a clever planner!  Each folio features a fun accordion fold pull-out section, pockets, waterfall features and lots of mini folios.

Need a unique birthday gift idea?  Give the birthday girl or guy the folio that matches his or her birth month.  Fill the pockets with photos and journal in memories from years gone by.  you can even tuck in small gift cards or treats as an extra surprise!

Life Captured 3rd Quarter Reveal Video

If you’d like to see all the wonderful supplies that come with this kit as well as take a closer look at all the various, flips, flaps, folds and pockets, please enjoy this short video tour.

The cost of the kit is $49.99 and is ready to ship at The Button Farm Club.

If you missed out on the 1st and 2nd Quarter folios, it’s not too late.  Laura tells me they still have some of those kits in stock.  You can find the 1st Quarter kit HERE and the 2nd Quarter Kit HERE.

Now I’m off to the kitchen to get some baking and food prep done for our family Memorial Day gathering tomorrow.  I hope you all have a wonderful time with your friends and families, too. I am so very thankful for the sacrifice of so many brave men and women in the military who have made it possible for us to enjoy our freedoms.  God Bless them, their families and God Bless the USA!




Button Farm Club Album in a Box Kit Reveal


Button Farm Club Album in a Box Kit Reveal with Carta Bella Here, There, and Everywhere

Hello, Friends!  I’ve been working on this Button Farm Club Album in a Box Kit Reveal all week long.  It’s finally finished and I’m so excited to share it with you today. Do you love bees, and flowers and sunshiny colors? Then I think you are really going to enjoy this kit!

I’ve designed a clever easel topper for the Graphic 45 Album in a Box.  This way, you can set the album out as part of your spring into summer home décor.  Since the box measures 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ it can fit into small spaces.  And because the easel style topper folds flat, it’s also easy to store.  How cute would this be on your office or craft room desk?

Handmade Embellishments

First, we’ll learn how to make handmade rosettes without using any dies. Then I’ll show you my sneaky trick for making rolled roses using simple items that most everyone has on hand. The tutorial for this project is filled with lots of helpful tips and techniques that you will be able to carry over into all your crafty adventures.   You’ll be amazed at how simple the process is, and you’ll love having the ability to add cute handmade embellishments to your cards, layouts and crafty projects.

What do you do with your itty bitty scraps of designer paper? Would you like to learn how to make cute mini banner embellishments with them?  Well, I’ll show you how in the tutorial.

An Upgraded Waterfall Feature

Take a look at this stylish belted waterfall feature!  Isn’t it fun? Waterfall features are a staple in any mini album.  They allow you to add lots of photos in a small space.  Great news: this belted waterfall feature does not require magnets.  How fun is that?

As you can see in this photo, the mini album is filled with lots of fun surprises.  I’ve prepared a little video tour that goes over the items that come in your kit as well as a project walk through.

How Do I Order?

This kits are all ready to ship out at The Button Farm Club.  This is a limited edition kit, which means once they are gone, they are gone.  Laura has an easy installment payment plan, too.  You can find out all about it by clicking on THIS link.

Thanks so much for all the interest and support you’ve shown for my Button Farm Club kits over the years.  I have so much fun planning the kits for you, and it gives me great pleasure to educate and inspire my crafty friends to create beautiful things with paper.

Have a great weekend, friends!

Beautiful Birdhouses in a Box

This Ciao Bella collection is every card maker’s dream come true.  It’s loaded with the cutest cut apart bird house images, and I could not resist turning them into a pair of birdhouse folios in a box.

Cute, right?  And a perfect home décor accent for spring, Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift or get well surprise.  I designed the box so that we have room to tuck in a little tea party in a box or other goodies, too.  To be clear, those items don’t come in the kit, but there is room for you to add your own should you choose to do so.

Pretty pastel satin ribbon binds the individual bird houses together.  You can see more of the details in the video tour below.

A Little Bit of Everything

Of course, we make traditional style cards in this kit, too.  And I share some of my sneaky card making tricks in the video tutorials.

Ciao Bella-Sparrow Hill-Slimline Cards-Button Farm Club-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

The collection offers a lovely variety of spring colors and shabby chic images like the ones featured on these slimline cards.

And because the collection has a beautiful border sheet in it, I had fun making various belly band card designs.  These double gatefold cards sport a pretty belly band.

And these double gatefold cards are easy to mail, thanks to the neat belly band design.

And of course, I had to include some of my favorite easel cards in the kit.  These fold down flat so they are easy to mail, too.

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

Simple Stories Simple Vintage Winter Woods Mini Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 02

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!
