Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  This Button Farm Club North Pole Exploding Mini Album Kit Release might look a bit familiar to some of you.  That’s because I created this project for my Christmas In July week.  So many of you asked me for a tutorial that I decided to get Button Farm to put together a kit with all the supplies and instructions for you.  I think the version created for the kit came out even better than the original designYou’ll love displaying this 4” x 4” x 4 1/4” decorative box on your holiday table, work desk or mantel.

The magnetic North Pole Tree Topper glistens with sparkling gold Christmas trees, a shiny ornament and a snow-topped wood slice.  The removable tree topper offers display options, too.  You can set it beside the album to create a festive holiday scene, and take it off when it comes time to store the album away.

Each of the 4 sides is fully decorated so that you can turn the box and display a different scene as you count down each week in December. 

Sweet Treats Inside

Everyone loves a little sweet treat at the holidays.  So the center panel of the album is a clear acetate box filled to the brim with 25 mini candy canes. We added one for each day to make the wait for Santa just a little bit sweeter.

The interactive album inside the box has room for more than 2 dozen photos, journaling cards, and pockets.

North Pole Gift Cards

And if gift cards are what’s in Santa’s sack this year, you will love making a set of 5 quick and easy to mail gift card holders. They are such a great way to personalize and dress up a monetary gift.  Best of all, even after you finish the exploding mini album and the card set, you’ll still have a nice stack of papers left over.  Make additional gift card holders, or turn them into a festive banner or folio.

Cosy Winter Christmas Card Kit for The Button Farm Club

Button Farm Club Cosy Winter Christmas Card Kit by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Button Farm Club Cosy Winter Christmas Card Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  It’s the perfect time to reveal this Button Farm Club Cosy Winter Christmas Card KitFragrant evergreen boughs, crackling fireplaces, and tantalizing brown paper packages tied up with string are some of my favorite things about Christmas!  This Quarterly Card Subscription Club, this captures all the charm, beauty and nostalgia of a family Christmas celebrated in a snug little cabin in the woods. Rusty jingle bells, wood buttons and rusted embellishments add to that cozy cabin  feel. 

Snowman Shaker Cards

Snowmen, anyone? Let’s create two darling snowman shaker cards to get the party started.

Fancy Fold Cards

Fancy fold cards are just plain fun to  make and exciting to receive.  Best of all, they fold flat for easy mailing!   This clever design offers a gift card pocket and a little sentiment panel for your personal greeting.

I could have called this kit “adventures in Fancy Fold Cards because we make so many different kinds.

Don’t you love this paper collection?  Adding in some rusty embellishments and wooden buttons really amps up the home in the woods vibe.

And you knew there had to be an easel card in this kit somewhere, didn’t you?

Brag Book or Stocking Stuffer?  You choose!

Itty bitty packages hold big time appeal for me.  This darling 3 1/2″ pocket and tag folio is small in size, but big on interactive elements.

You could easily turn this into a brag book for a distant grandparent, auntie or uncle.  But it would also make a fantastic stocking stuffer, mini December Daily or gift card holder!

I may have gone a little overboard with all the flips, flaps, pockets and pull outs in this tiny treasure.  And you will be thrilled with how easy it is to  make!

Slimline and Easy to Mail Cards

Because it is Christmas, and I know you will want to mail some of these cards to friends and family, I tried to include a few simple to make/easy to mail cards in this kit.

We opted for “flatter” embellishments, smaller bows and no dimensional flowers on these cards.  But that does not mean boring!  You can fold this easel card flat for mailing, but it has loads of dimension when you stand it upright!

And I love the sweet simplicity of this card design!

The Card Folio

Because y’all have told me how much you love making card folios, I was sure to include one in this kit.  As a bonus, it has a shaker pouch on the cover.

Trust me…there’s plenty of fun tucked inside this easy to make design!

We clean up our scraps with these two darling gift tags.  Imagine how cute these will be tied onto a cookie plate or loaf of homemade bread.

Lemon Twist and Shout Creative Kit Reveal

Simple Stories Lemon Twist Creative Kit for The Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Lemon Twist and Shout Creative Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  I’m really excited to share this Lemon Twist and Shout Creative Kit for The Button Farm Club!  This kit has a little bit of everything I love to make built into it: cards; shaker cards, folios and even a lemony luscious banner!

Lemon Twist Banner by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club Photo 01

Believe it or not, I selected this collection mid-January!  It has taken all this time for Simple Stories to get this collection back from the printer and shipped out.  But i think it was worth the wait.  It’s loaded with cheery lemons, buzzing bees, beautiful botanicals and fluttering butterflies.  Lemon Twist is such unique collection that I wanted to create a unique kit with a little bit of everything in it…so I did!

Lemon Twist Fancy Fold Cards

It’s always a good thing to have a quick and easy card design for those moments when you have to get a card made in a short period of time.  This fancy fold card design does just that…but I’ve added a couple of “extra” features to it that make it stand out.  You can see what I mean in the video reveal below.

And you all know how much I love a good easel card!  But when it doubles as a shaker card, I’m extra happy!  But there’s more to this fancy fold card than meets the eye!

It’s actually a clever little folio with a hidden pocket!  What a great way to brighten up your desk!

Folios and More Folios…

Lemon Twist Star Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 01

The outside of this little folio looks pretty standard, doesn’t it?

But just look at what is waiting for you inside!  This is just one example of the quick and easy folios I designed for this kit.  Folios make such great gifts!  You can see the other folios designed for this kit in the video tour.

Shaker Cards

It’s no secret that I love shaker cards…and bees!  You will find plenty of both items tucked into this kit.  We actually make the banner, 2 fancy fold cards, 4 different styles of folios, and 4 shaker cards in this kit.  And you’ll have some lovely scraps left over for tags or small cards, too.

Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit Reveal

Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit for The Button Farm Club by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  If you have precious memories of your grandmother’s country kitchen, then I think you are going to fall in love with this Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club.  If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, and what I’ve been up to, well…here it is.  This is the largest, most involved kit I’ve put together for The Button Farm Club to date.  The planning for this beauty began back in January, if you can believe that!  But I think all the time and effort paid off, because I love the way this charming project turned out.

Farmhouse Bread Box

This adorable “made from scratch” bread box is the centerpiece of the kit.  I don’t know about you, but this one takes me right back to my Grammy’s country kitchen.  You could always count on finding something delicious tucked into her bread box!

The Farmhouse vibe comes through loud and clear in the colors, patterns and images found in Simple Stories Vintage Farmhouse Garden collection.

The theme of the collection lends itself perfectly to a recipe album, garden journal or heritage style album.  And you all know how much I love a project that doubles as home decor!

The Mini Album

Here’s the sweet treat hiding inside that country bread box.  It’s a 6×6 mini album done up in Farmhouse style.  You learn how to build the tri-fold album base in the tutorial that comes with the kit.  So once you’ve built it the first time, you can make it again and again for any theme and with any paper collection you want to use.

I just love the colors and images in this collection!

And just look at these darling charms!

A Peek Inside

The trifold album is built with loads of room for recipes, 3×5 recipe cards, photos and journaling.

You’ll learn how to add all kinds of interactive features to the album, too!

The back cover houses a dandy accordion pull out folio all decked out with gorgeous papers and images from the kit.

You know how much I love to share ways to make creative use of scraps.  This tutorial will give you lots and lots of delightful ideas for cleaning up bits and bobs of the paper collection.

The Recipe Card Envelopes

You’ll also learn how to make these clever 6 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ envelopes to house larger recipe cards.  These tuck neatly inside the front flap of the bread box.  The box also houses the mini album, isn’t that handy?

YouTube Video Tour

You can see all the kit contents and take a tour of the finished project kit here.

What Comes in the Kit

Each kit comes with everything you need beyond basic crafting supplies like adhesive, cutting tools and measuring tools.  

Here’s what comes in your Farmhouse Garden Bread Box Recipe Album Kit:

  • Simple Stories Vintage Farmhouse Garden 12×12 Collection Kit ( 12 double sided pages plus the 12×12 cardstock sticker sheet.)
  • 4 additional sheets of 12×12 Farmhouse Garden paper
  • Farmhouse Garden 12×12 Solids Paper Pack (6 color matched sheets)
  • Ephemera Bits with 44 pieces
  • Ephemera Bits and Pieces with 64 pieces
  • Farmhouse Garden Adhesive Brads
  • 10 sheets of 8 ½” x 11” black cardstock
  • 3 sheets of 12×12 chipboard
  • 2 yards of Peacock Seam Binding Ribbon
  • 1 yard of 1 ½” wide black gingham ribbon
  • 3 yards of black and white Baker’s Twine
  • 3 silver tone farmhouse charms (mix and match)
  • Little Birdie Joanna Flowers
  • Basic Written Guide in PDF format with full color pictures
  • Links to Step by Step Video Tutorials

Once again, Laura has worked her magic to make this huge kit amazingly affordable.  The price is $65.45.  You would find it very hard to buy all the elements in this kit for that price.  And on top of the supplies you get the video and written tutorials!

This is a limited edition kit, shipped first come/first served.  The last time I did a recipe album, it sold out in a day.  So you might want to jump on this one.  I think it will make an amazing Christmas gift!

Order your kit here.

As always, I humbly thank you for your enthusiastic interest and support of these kits.  I have such fun planning and designing them.  And you seem to be enjoying them, too.

Now I need to go clean my house and do the laundry!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal

Button Farm Club Prima My Sweet Card Kit Reveal by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends! Today I’m celebrating this Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal.  Believe it or not, the plans for this kit started back in January of this year!  Weeks and months go by as I search high and low to find just the right  papers, trims, and embellishments to make my Button Farm Club Kits special.  Then I go to work on the actual designs,  I have a sketchbook where card designs are roughed out, paper use is planned and ideas are formed.  Paper scraps were flying in the studio last week!   Each kit takes 40-60 hours to create, film and edit.  So when I finally get to create the elements and release the kit for you to enjoy, I feel like throwing a party!

Shabby Chic Sewing Themed Goodness

Y’all know how much I love vintage buttons.  So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw the preview for this shabby chic sewing themed paper collection.  Vintage button cards?  Yes, please!

And how fun is this pop up card?  You’ll want to make a stack of them once you learn how!

Look how sweet and soft this vellum shaker card is.  So perfect for a summer wedding or birthday!

I know how much you love a good fancy fold card design, so I had to add these sweet cards to the mix.

The colors and patterns in this paper collection are so beautiful!

We keep things “on trend” with a botanical slimline card design.

Buttons, buttons and more buttons!

This pair of easel cards double as craft room décor.  And look at that darling sewing machine charm!

One of my favorite things about these kits is sharing my best tips for using your scraps in creative and unexpected ways.

My Sweet Flip Folio

Because you have told me how much you enjoy making a little folio along with the cards, I designed a brand new flip folio with a belly band for this kit.

Once you learn how to make this folio, you can change up the papers and make it for any theme or occasion.

Here’s a sneaky peek at a couple of my favorite elements from this folio design.

You can see the entire folio in the video reveal below.

Once again, Laura at Button Farm Club has worked her magic.  The price for this kit is only $52.99.  It would be a challenge to buy just the materials at that price, so getting the written guide and video tutorial  links make this kit an amazing value.

Why I Make these Kits

So many of you have asked me to travel and do classes.  These Button Farm Club Kits give you the opportunity to take an online class with step by step instructions.  The video format allows you to watch over and over again at times that are convenient for you.  You can even watch in your pajamas!  I’ll never tell!

As always, I thank you from the tips of my crafty little fingers for your enthusiastic support for these Quarterly Card Club Kits.  The next Club Kit comes out in September, and it will feature a gorgeous Christmas Card kit that I think you will really love.

Next month, I have a really fun kit planned that will find us cooking up a delightful farmhouse themed project.  I can’t wait to share it with you!

Thanks for stopping by!
