Farmhouse Christmas Album Kit Reveal

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.

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,

Button Farm Club Timeless Wedding Album Kit Release

Button Farm Club Authentique Timeless Wedding Album Kit by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Button Farm Club Timeless Wedding Album Kit Release

Hello, Friends!  Because love is always in season, I’m thrilled to announce this Button Farm Club Timeless Wedding Kit Release!  This classic mini album kit is designed to help you document your wedding, celebrate a special anniversary, or create a heritage-themed wedding album that you will cherish for many years to come.

Timeless Beauty

You just can’t beat cream and black for a wedding album!  The colors never go out of style, work with any wedding color scheme, are perfect for heritage wedding albums and really make black and white portraits pop.

Designing this album was so much fun.  I started with a 49 & Market blank album.  Then I paired it up with gorgeous papers from  Authentique’s  Timeless Collection.  Creamy white flowers from Little Birdie Crafts, luxurious satin ribbon and a stylish chipboard title add extra charm to the design.

This elegant oversized antique bronze key dresses up the album spine.  A large album like this  6 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ beauty offers loads of room for photos, journaling and special memories.

A Peek Inside

Interactive elements in an album make me really happy.  So I came up with lots of ways to customize the album design to accommodate my passion for little pull-out features, folios and pockets.

The album is designed to tell your love story from the proposal to the wedding and on through the reception.  There’s even a spot to add a few honeymoon and 1st anniversary photos!  This large double waterfall feature will display 22 big photos.

Share photos of your wedding party and honored guests here.

And this gatefold design page features lots of wonderful nooks and crannies for photos and journaling.

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Kit Authentique Calendar July, August, September by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Button Farm Club Year in a Box Kit July, August and September

Hello, Friends!  Can you believe it is time to release the Button Farm Club Year in a Box Kit for July, August and September?  This year is just racing by!  Once again,  I’ve changed up the format for these little 7″ x 7″ monthly folios.   (If you’re new to the blog, you can find out about the Year in a Box Project HERE. )

Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy!

The summer months are filled with so many wonderful events: back yard barbecues, trips to the beach, pool time, and 4th of July celebrations, just to name a few.

You’ll be able to document them all in these clever little folios.

Each one is loaded with pockets, mini folios and room to add photos and jounaling.

The monthly calendar rests inside a little sleeve on the folio cover.  Flip it over to find room to make lists, journal or add a photo.

This quarter features a clever 6′ x 4″ pull out page along with a cute pocket filled with tags and a ledger sheet.

You’ll learn how to make an accordion style pocket to hold 2 mini folios, too.

Apple Picking Time!

September is one of my favorite months of the year.  The images and color palette for the September folio are just stunning!

Back to school, an apple for the teacher and falling leaves…what could be more welcoming?

Video Flip Through

To help you get an idea for the way these folios work, I’ve prepared a very short video flip through.

Kit Details

Each kit for this release contains the following:

  • (24) 12×12 sheets of Authentique Calendar collection
    • 2 each of the images, sentiments, patterns, and solid sheets for July, August and September
    • (3) 12×12 sheets of cream cardstock
    • Basic written cutting and instruction guides
    • Links to video tutorials for each folio

The wonderful thing about these folio kits is that you will be able to use the design with other paper collections.  They make wonderful gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and other holidays.

Each kit costs $27.00.  You’ll only need to add your adhesives and basic crafting supplies like scissors, rulers, paper cutters, etc.

These kits are limited, so order before they disappear.  You can order your kit HERE.  Laura at Button Farm Club has a few Spring and Winter Folios left in stock, so you can still get this “year in a box” project completed.  2020 has certainly been a year to remember!

As always, thank you so much for your support.  Many of you have asked me to travel and teach classes.  This is an easy way for you to take a class with me as we create these folios together in the video tutorials.  It’s such an honor to share these designs with you!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
