Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Release

Authentique Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  Oh what fun to share this Snowfall interactive Folio Kit Reveal with you!  If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time, you already know how much I enjoy designing and creating folios with flips, flaps, pockets and surprises tucked inside.  This Authentique Snowfall folio ticks all those boxes.  The cover sparkles like freshly fallen snow.  The interior mechanisms are more fun than a toboggan ride down a big winter hill!  Let’s take a peek, shall we?

First, lets talk about the basics.  Measuring 7″ x 7″  with 1/2″ spines on the left and right hand sides, it’s not too big and not too small.

Then I layered up the gorgeous patterned papers with sparkling Little Birdie Flowers, a glittery snowflake, vintage black buttons, and the cutest little winter charms.  The vintage style images in this collection are nostalgic and heart warming.  Don’t you just love them?

Next, just for fun,   I designed the folio with a wide belly band.  This doubles as the cover art.  But it also makes me think of a  high end slip cased book.  You can actually add your first winter photo to the folio cover.

Snowfall Interactive Folio Kit Reveal: The Moving Parts

I’ve prepared a little video tour of the album for you so you can really see all the wonderful moving parts.  But I thought I’d also share a few beauty shots.  The inside front cover, for instance, is a big slash pocket with 6×6 photo mats tucked inside.

How fun is this mini accordion folio that’s tucked into the calendar pocket on the slash pocket?  If one pocket is good…two is better, right?

The folio tutorial is filled to the brim with great techniques that you will be able to transfer to all your papercrafting adventures.  And, once you learn how to build the folio base, you can easily create it in any color or style or theme.  That’s one of the things I love about providing you with a “made from scratch” kit like this one.

Good things come in small packages.  And these darling Tag Shaped Pocket cards are really good!  You get a fussy cutting tutorial when we make these sweet cards.

This Sunburst Thanksgiving Card might just be my favorite of all the designs in this kit.  For one thing, it’s just as cute as it can be.  For another, the design is a great way to use up all those pretty little scraps of your designer paper.

And you knew I would have to include a card folio, didn’t you?  This trifold design has a lovely hidden pocket panel inside as well as lots of room for fall photos.

That’s a total of 15 cards and 8 unique card designs!  And once you learn how to make these card bases, you’ll have that knowledge locked up in your crafty toolbox to use over and over again.

Farmhouse Christmas Album Kit Reveal

Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas Album by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Button Farm Club Photo 01

Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  September is the perfect month to share this Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club. If you start now, you’ll have plenty of time to create your album before the holiday season kicks in.  Then you can set it out as part of your Christmas decor!  How fun is that?

Don’t you just love this red Mixed Media Album?  I don’t call it a mini album, because it’s massive!  There are 16 double-sided pages tucked inside this 8 1/4″ x 8 3/4″ x 2″ beauty!  So you know there is plenty of room for all your Christmas photos, memories, and more!

I love how cozy these Carta Bella Farmhouse images make me feel.

And can you say “rusty jingle bells”?  Oh yeah, we’ve got em!

This album is so huge, we actually combined 2 Christmas Collections to create it: Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas and Echo Park Christmas Delivery.  They work together in perfect harmony.  Let’s take a peek inside.

December Weekly Format

I’ve never been able to keep up with a December Daily.  The holidays are just too busy. But a December weekly feels more manageable to me.  So I broke this album down into 4 sections to cover 4 weeks of Advent.  Each of the 4 sections follows the same layout and design for easy construction.

There’s room for a great big photo of your tree behind this vellum pull out folio.  And room inside the folio for journaling and smaller photos.

Each section also has a double layout page with room for 4″ x 6″ photos and a hidden pocket with pull out journaling cards.

Then add more large and small photos on the tip out page.

And even more large photos in this pull out folio!

You know I love a good waterfall feature.  So this album has 4 of them!  That’s room for 35 (count ’em!) 4″ x 5″ photos!

Plenty of pockets means plenty of room to save precious letters to Santa, wish lists, or recipes.  You can even save your Christmas menu and cookie list here.

YouTube Video Tour

To help you get a feel for just how much goodness is packed into this album, I’ve prepared a little YouTube video tour.

 

What Comes in the Kit?

This kit is loaded down like Santa’s Sleigh on Christmas Eve!

  • Graphic 45 Red Mixed Media Album
  • Carta Bella Farmhouse Christmas Collection Pack (with 12×12 cardstock stickers)
  • Farmhouse Christmas Ephemera Pack
  • Chipboard Phrases Sheet/Farmhouse Christmas
  • Echo Park Christmas Delivery Collection Pack (with more 12×12 cardstock stickers!)
  • 6 color matched 12×12 solid color sheets
  • Little Birdie Flower Pack
  • 10 yards of twine
  • 2 yards of red ribbon
  • 5 rusty jingle  bells
  • Downloadable PDF written Tutorial
  • Links to private video tutorials

That’s 25 sheets of patterned 12×12 paper, two 12×12 cardstock sticker sheets and 6 more sheets of  12×12 solids plus all the trimmings!  The only thing you need to add to the kit is adhesives and basic crafting tools like scissors, rulers, scoring tools and such.

The price for this massive kit is just $64.00!  (I honestly don’t know how Laura manages to put her kits together so reasonably…but I’m so glad she does!)

This kit will sell out quickly if past kits are any indication.  So order your kit today from The Button Farm Club.

You can find my past kits and tutorials at The Button Farm Club.  Many of the tutorials can be adapted for use with any paper collection you might have on hand.

So now you know what I’ve been up to!  I hope you will enjoy creating this lovely kit as much as I enjoyed planning and designing it!

And now..back to work!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal

Authentique Calendar Collection Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in quickly this Sunday afternoon to share the Button Farm Club Year in a Box Fall Folios Reveal. If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, and if I am OK then I apologize.  Between our prolific tomato plants (we’ve harvested over 500 Roma Tomatoes…so far!).  There have been lots of special orders in my Etsy shop, family birthdays and making vats of homemade marinara and salsa happening all at the same time.  And I’ve just been too busy/tired to blog much.

But I have a few quiet moments right now to share this month’s Button Farm Club project with you.  Who knew when we began this Year in a Box Project back in November of 2019 that 2020 was going to be such a wild ride?

As I was designing these fall folios, I kept thinking to myself, “Well, we’ve saved the best for last!” The October, November and December folios are filled with vintage goodness!  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

October: Too Cute to Spook!

Authentique October Calendar Year in a Box Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for the Button Farm Club Photo 01

Like all the other folios in this series, the October folio measures 7″ x 7″ x 1/4″.  But I changed up the folio design this month to make more room for large photos.  The pull out calendar is actually a 6 1/2″ square folio.

No one does Halloween as well as Authentique Paper does.  They capture the perfect balance between spooky and fun without being too cutesy or too gruesome.

The fall folios are have a great trifold design with lots of pockets and loads of room for large photos and journaling.

The images and patterns are just spot on!

I think you are really going to love the way these folios function!

November:  Grateful Hearts

The November folio is all about having a thankful heart.  Here’s a look at the large calendar folio that tucks inside the cuffed pocket sleeve on the folio cover.  The tutorial this quarter is loaded with lots of my sneaky tricks for making the most of your papers, working with scraps and there’s even a fussy cutting tutorial thrown in for good measure.

The November papers are perfectly vintage and perfectly beautiful!

December: Festive and Jolly!

The December folios are festive and jolly, just as you would expect them to be.

For me, the big surprise is the color palette.  I love the shades of blue that are thrown in to the mix with traditional reds and greens.

You will love recording your December memories in this beautiful folio!

Year in a Box: Bigger and Better!

Several of  you that purchased the November 2019 Year in a Box Club Kit contacted me to say that you needed the box to be bigger.  So I also worked out a way to add a collar to the box.  The tutorial and supplies to fix the box are available to you through the Button Farm Club.  Contact Laura at The Button Farm Club for the details.  But you’ll be happy to know that the box can hold all 12 folios with room to spare.  They can actually stand upright so you can just flip through the folios instead of stacking them on top of one another.  It looks really good, too!

I took this photo before the gorgeous primitive gingham ribbon arrived.  It is a perfect match for the designer paper on the box and at 2 1/2″ wide, it covers most of the expansion collar.

Fall Folios Reveal on YouTube

I’ve prepared a short video tour of the folios for you on my YouTube Channel.

About the Kit

Your Fall Folio kit comes with everything you need to create the folios you see in the video, except for basic crafting supplies like adhesive and scissors.  You’ll receive:

  • 24 Sheets of Authentique 12″ x 12″ October, November and December Calendar Collection (2 sheets of each image, sentiment, pattern and colored cardstock paper)
  • 6 sheets of 12×12 cardstock for matting and mechanisms
  • Full color PDF Basic Guide with measurements and photos
  • Links to in depth, easy to follow step by step video tutorial

The price for each kit is $27.  If you subscribed to the Year in a Box project back in November, your kit will be mailed directly to you.  If you did not subscribe, you can order your kit today at The Button Farm Club.

Laura re-stocked the Winter, Spring and Summer Folio Kits so you can still complete the whole year or get a jump on 2021.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for your  kind support of these Button Farm Club Kits.  I love hearing that you are enjoying making these kits as gifts, making them with friends, and sharing them with others.  What a huge blessing that is to me!  The video format makes it even easier for you to craft along with me, and I’m getting good feedback from many of you saying how glad you are for those videos!  That makes my heart happy!

So now I’m going to sign off, and maybe go take a little nap before I jump back into the work week tomorrow morning!  Thanks for sharing your Sunday afternoon with me!

Cheerio,

kathy
