Life Captured 4th Quarter Kit Reveal for the Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  It’s been a busy week in the studio getting this Life Captured 4th Quarter Kit Reveal ready for The Button Farm Club.  This is the final installment of our year-long project featuring monthly folios made with Simple Stories Life Captured paper collection.  It’s been such a fun year creating with these fresh, vibrant papers.  And now we are stepping into the most beautiful months of the year: October, November and December.

So many fun holidays and events take place during these months, and we want to preserve all the wonderful memories of time spent with family and friends. But documenting memories takes a lot of time, so often we just don’t get it done.  That’s why I designed these quick and easy folios so we can capture the faces and places we love so much.

Each of the folios can be completed in under an hour.  Yet, the simply layout provides loads of room for photos, journaling and sweet spots to tuck in memorabilia so we can look back at happy days and smile. Here’s a quick peek at the folios in this quarter’s kit.

The October Folio

Acorns, fall leaves, flowers and pumpkins take center stage in this vibrant little folio.

Wait ’til you see all the room this compact folio has inside!

November, November

It always seems to me that fall flowers are the most vibrant blooms of the year.  Do they know that winter is coming soon, so they decide to show off?  Whatever the reason, I decided to feature these gorgeous fall blooms on the cover of the November folio.  You’ll get to see all the goodies inside when you watch the video reveal below.

December: The Sweetest Month of the Year

December is made for memories, don’t you think?  Holiday baking, wrapping presents, decorating the tree, and then unwrapping on Christmas morning make for perfect photo ops.

Since baking plays such a huge role during the Christmas holidays, I decided to add some sweet little recipe folios to the design.  And honestly, how sweet is this paper?

Add On Storage System

So how do we store all the  memories complied in these sweet little folios?  Well, After much thinking, planning and searching, I found these adorable magazine slipcases to house the folios.  They are a perfect color match for the paper collection: super affordable,  sturdy, easy to assemble and look great on display.

These are an optional addition for those who have been making the folios all year long.  You can find out about them HERE.

If you’ve been making these folios along with me this year, I’d like to thank you for making this kit a success.  I hope you enjoyed making them as much as I did!

What’s next?  Well…I’m working on our September card kit. And it is going to be gorgeous!  I’ll be sharing that with you next month.

That’s it for me today, friends!  I wish you a day filled with joy and creativity!



Nana’s Kitchen Recipe Album Kit Reveal

Nana’s Kitchen Recipe Album Kit Reveal for Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I’m excited to announce my Nana’s Kitchen Recipe Album Kit Reveal for Button Farm Club today.  This project has been in the works for several months now, so it’s a happy day to be able to finally share it with you.

My grandmother was a marvelous cook.  Every Sunday our family gathered at her home for Sunday dinner.  I can still remember walking along her front porch to the kitchen door.  As you approached, savory aromas would make your mouth water.  Baked ham, roast beef, turkey, chicken, or lamb…you never knew what the main course would be; you only knew it would be wonderful.  Our big, noisy family crowded around the dining room table as steaming bowls of mashed potatoes, gravy and vegetables were passed from plate to plate.  This ritual of  lingering over a shared meal, lively conversation, and laughter marked my life and gave me a strong identity.

That’s why I wanted to make this recipe album kit.  It’s an homage to my family roots and a tribute to those country women who knew how to spread a table and create special memories.

Keepsake Recipes

This is the perfect place to write down all your keepsake recipes.  The album is huge: 31 double sided 6×8 pages!  There’s room for loads of recipes, yes.  But there’s also room to add family photos and ephemera from the people you love.


This would make a wonderful Christmas gift for your children, grandchildren or even for yourself.

Easy Pocket Pages

I chose this pocket page album design because it is so easy to work with.  The binding system installs in seconds, and the page protectors will keep your recipes safe from kitchen spills and spatters.

Digital Stamps and Sentiments

Once again, I’ve designed a set of digital stamps and sentiments to add to the value and beauty of this kit.  You’ll receive (2) 8 1/2″ x 11″ printed sheets of stamps in your kit.  But I think Laura is also going to make the stamp set available as a digital download in the store.

Everything about this nostalgic “made from scratch” recipe album is beautiful.  I hope you will love it as much as I do.

If you’d like to join me over on my YouTube Channel for a walk through of the goodies that come in this kit as well as a page by page tour of the album, please enjoy this video.


You can order your album today at Button Farm Club. They will ship out within the next couple of days so you will have plenty of time to get your cookbook made before the holidays.

Here’s to memories made in the kitchen and around the table.

Thanks for stopping by!

Ciao Bella Christmas Vibes Card Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club June Quarterly Card Kit

I know it’s only June, but many of  you had requested that we release the card kit early to give you more time to get it all done.  Your wish is our command, so here we are…and really, right on time for Christmas in July.

This kit is loaded!  We’ll be making a dozen interactive cards that double as gifts, and this Sweet Treats and Good Eats folio, too.  Here’s a closer look:

Shaker Cards!

Shaker cards are just so right for the holidays!  Those sparkly sequins mimic the glow of Christmas lights.  And these shaker cards have a special surprise design, which you can view in the reveal video below.

How about the vintage lantern on this slimline shaker card?  And wait til you see the rest!  Think Christmas in the Country…and you’ll be over the target!

Twist and Pop

If you’re looking for a little holiday excitement, you can’t beat the fun of a twist and pop card.  We’ll make two for this kit…and then I bet you’ll want to go on and make a dozen more.

Classic Christmas Elegance

I love the classic elegance of a card with a belly band, don’t you?  I’ve been making them for years now.  This set has a wonderful gatefold and z-fold design that’s loads of fun to make.

Pop Up Scene Cards

Are you up for learning a new way to build a pop up scene inside your Christmas cards?  This tutorial is so much fun, and will have you making multi-layer pop up scene cards in no time!

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!

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.
