Button Farm Club Love Story Card Kit Reveal

Button Farm Club Love Story Card Kit Reveal

Hello, Friends!  I’ve been busy as a bee all week putting together this Button Farm Club Simple Stories Card Kit Reveal for  you.  Think shabby chic, posh florals and rich colors and you’ll have this kit figured out.  Add in interactive, kinetic and unexpected and you’ll have an even better idea of what to expect from this kit.

Although this is a love themed collection, I took it in a friendship and all-occasion card direction.  This lovely kit will teach you how to make 12 cards and a really fun little flip folio.  That’s a lot of creative fun packed into one paper collection!  Here’s a sneak peek at just a few of the cards in this kit.

Touches of Gold

If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time,, you are probably well aware of my fondness for bird images. The sweet songbirds and lovebirds in this collection tipped the scale on my decision to use in in this quarter’s card kit.  To amp up the shabby chic/vintage vibe we added some sparkly gold ribbon and lovely gold doilies to the kit.  Ooh-la-la!

Unexpected Designs

Not all cards have to open!  How fun is it to have a card that doubles as a wall hanging like this pocket card?  Filled with darling little tags and a tiny note card, it’s the perfect friendship card.  And, there’s room in the pocket to tuck in a gift card, tea bag or other small treat, too.

Pop-Up Cards

What is it about opening a pop up card?  It’s always such a delightful surprise when a flat card turns into a 3-D card, isn’t it?  You’ll learn how easy it is to create this fun angled pop up card and then you’ll want to make stacks of them because they are so much fun to create and give.

Pocket Easel Cards

I just had to include easel cards in this kit, because they are my absolute favorite fancy fold. Set it out on display, fold it flat for mailing…and there’s even a pocket inside to hold a little treat!

Cards with the WOW factor

It’s always fun to give a card that has a WOW factor built into it.  The recipient almost always says, “How did you DO this?  That’s a moment that makes every card maker’s heart happy. The good news is, this cards looks complicated to make.  But when you know how, it’s just as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Christmas Spectacular Mini Album Kit Reveal

49 & Market Christmas Spectacular Mini Album Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  Today’s the exciting day when I get to share this Christmas Spectacular Mini Album Kit Reveal for the Button Farm Club!  What a delightful week I’ve spent in the studio putting this interactive, “made from scratch” album together for you.

Button Farm Club 49 & Market Christmas Spectacular Mini Album Kit Reveal-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Sized perfectly for nice, big, Christmas photos, the 6″ x 8″ album is filled with festive patterns, nostalgic images and wonderful interactive pages.

We added special Christmas touches everywhere…even on the spine!

A Peek Inside

Y’all know how much I  love pages that move, so I designed this album with lots of easy to make, yet impressive, interactive pages like this belted waterfall on the first page of the album.

Of course, there are pockets galore!  And just like we used to hide the wrapped Christmas surprises away from prying eyes, I built some really fun hidden elements into the album design.

Lots of Room for Photos

We make so many of the years’ best memories during the holidays, so I designed pages with lots of room for nice, big photos to help you remember all the celebrations.

 

The vintage Santa images in this collection are so sweet I could not resist featuring them on this kinetic slider gatefold page.

If you have loved the look of 49 & Market papers, but been a bit baffled over how to put them together, then I think you will especially enjoy making this beautiful album.  It’s chock full with ideas for layering ephemera and using all the bits and bobs that come in the embellishment packs.

If you’d like to take a closer look at all the goodies that come with this delightful kit as well as take a walk through of the album with me, then I invite you to grab a cuppa and enjoy this video reveal.

 

Kit Supplies and How to Order

This kit is the Button Farm Club Mini Album Kit for November 2023.  It comes with all the supplies you saw in the video reveal (plus a yard of Christmas Baker’s Twine that I forgot to add). You will also receive a full color printed Basic Written Guide with detail photos and basic measurements for the album construction and pages.  Your purchase also gives you all time access to 3 video tutorials where I teach you how to create each element in the album kit.  You can watch these videos over and over again whenever  you like.

This kit is NOT part of my card club subscription kit, so you will need to order it if you are not already a member of the BFC Mini Album Club.  You can find out how to order HERE. 

Other BFC Kits

If you missed out on the Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit, there are a few of these left in Laura’s shop.  You can place your order for those HERE.

Sadly, the Christmas Vibes Card Kit has sold out, but you can still order the TUTORIAL ONLY.

You can find all of the kits I’ve designed over the years for Button Farm Club HERE. Some of these are still available as TUTORIAL ONLY, while others are still in stock.

What’s Next?

I’m already working on the December Card Club Kit, my friends!  It’s going to be extra-gorgeous because we will be using Simple Stories Vintage Love Story collection.  It will be available at the end of December, so keep an eye out for that.  We’re going to have so much fun with these beautiful papers…and wait til you see what I have in mind!

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’m wishing you all a joyous, restful and blessed Sunday.

Thanks so much for all your support, encouragement and for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  Just as I promised you on Tuesday, I am back today with my Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit Reveal.  Wait until you see all the crafty adventures I’ve packed in to this card kit!  If you’re a fan of interactive, fun fold cards, I think you are going to be inspired!

Envelope Shaker & Pocket Cards

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit Reveal-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Shaker Cards

Hello, Sunshine and Sunflowers!  It’s always nice to have a sort of “warm up” card to kick off a card kit.  So I designed this pair of cheery envelope ad pocket shaker cards to get things started.  Where’s the pocket?  Well, you’ll just have to watch the video reveal to find out!

Gatefold Accordion Cards with Belly Bands

Gatefold Accordion Cards-Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden-Button Farm Club-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Cards that move make me happy.  And cards with belly bands always seem to have a certain flair, don’t you think?  But what happens when you combine the two?  You get a really stylish and fabulous Accordion Gatefold Card.  Here’s a sneak peek at the inside of these fun to make cards!

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit-Button Farm Club-Kathy Clement-Accordion Gatefold Card

Now that’s what I call a fun fold!

Classic Sunflower Slimline Card

Sunflower Slimline Card-Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit-Kathy Clement-Button Farm Club

Hello, gorgeous!  This slimline card is ridiculously easy to make.  A few simple designer touches make it a stand out.  It’s one of my favorite cards in the kit.

Slide and Lock Cards

Here’s another kinetic card that’s loads of fun to make and impressive to give.  These slide and lock cards take a basic gatefold card design to a whole new level.  The focal image slides up and down.

Actually, it slides right off the card!  When it is in place, though, it holds the gatefold element in place.  You’ve just gotta love a fun fold card that is part toy!

Shaped Easel Cards

Easel cards are probably my favorite fun fold style.  The fact that they can stand upright for display has a lot to do with that.  These easel cards do that, of course.  But a sweet shaped focal image makes them even more dynamic.

Bridge Cards

No…not like the bridge playing cards!  These bridge cards are a neat type of trifold card with a hidden image behind the focal image.  You’ll see how cool they are in the video below.

Let’s see….that’s 11 cards…which is pretty good for a card kit.  But wait, there’s more!

Shaker Front Tri-Fold Folio

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Accordion Shaker Flip Folio-Kathy Clement-Button Farm Club

I had loads of little tags, journal cards and labels left over from making the card kit.  So I decided to create this darling 6×6 accordion style folio with a shaker frame cover.  It was the perfect way to finish out this wonderful card kit.

If you’d like to take a closer look at the kit supplies and the finished paper pretties in this card kit, please enjoy this reveal video.  The first half is a repeat of what I shared with you on Tuesday, but the last part is a walk through of all the interactive cards and the folio.

This card kit is part of my Quarterly Card Kit Subscription Club, so if you are a member, you do not need to order.  It will ship out to you automatically.

If you are not a member and would like to order, you can get your kit at the Button Farm Club.

It’s been a very busy, happy and productive week in the studio.  I hope you are as excited about this  kit as I am.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit Sneak Peek

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Market Card Kit by Kathy Clement for The Button Farm Club

Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit Sneak Peek

Hello, Friends!  There’s no Make & Take Tuesday tutorial today, but I do have  this Ciao Bella Farmhouse Garden Card Kit Sneak Peek to share with you.  As I write this, I am in the middle of editing the video tutorials and photos for this Button Farm Club September card kit.

When I first laid eyes on the Farmhouse Garden papers, I knew they were the perfect collection to help us transition from summer to fall.  The papers are filled with beautiful floral images, sweet pups and kitties, gorgeous patterned papers and so many wonderful images that the hardest thing about designing this  kit was deciding which ones to use!

Fun Fold Card Extravaganza

If you are a cardmaker like me, then you love to learn a new fun fold card technique.  There are 11 cards in this kit, and 10 of them are fun folds! How’s that for a fun fold card extravaganza?

Several of  you have asked me to share tutorials for standard A2 cards (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).  So I included several of those in this kit to honor that request.  And, most of these cards fold flat for easy mailing, too.

YouTube Sneak Peek

I’m still working on the editing and tutorial writing, so I don’t have samples to share with you today.  We’ll save that for Thursday when the card kit releases. But for today, I have this short sneak peek tour that will show you all the goodies that come with the kit.

Life Captured 4th Quarter Kit Reveal

Life Captured 4th Quarter Kit Reveal-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Button Farm Club

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

Life Captured 4th Quarter Kit Reveal-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Button Farm Club-Storage

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’d like to take a peek a the materials in this kit and walk through the finished folios, please enjoy this video tour.

 

If you subscribed to the Folio Kits, your order will ship out automatically.  But you don’t need to be subscribed to order.  The 4th Quarter Kit is available as a stand alone purchase.

We also have a limited number of kits available for Quarter 1 (January-March), Quarter 2 (April-June) and Quarter 3 (July-September).

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!

Cheerio,
