Sparrow Hill Card Kit Reveal for The Button Farm Club Spring Quarterly Card Kit

Hello, Friends!  I’m super excited to share this Sparrow Hill Card Kit Reveal with you today! Do you love spring pastels, sweet little sparrows, and shabby chic style? Then I think you’re going to love what’s in store.  This is my Spring Quarterly Card Kit for The Button Farm Club, and it’s one of my favorite card kits so far.  I’ll share a few little sneak peeks with you here, and then we’ll watch the reveal video together.

Beautiful Birdhouses in a Box

This Ciao Bella collection is every card maker’s dream come true.  It’s loaded with the cutest cut apart bird house images, and I could not resist turning them into a pair of birdhouse folios in a box.

Cute, right?  And a perfect home décor accent for spring, Mother’s Day gift, birthday gift or get well surprise.  I designed the box so that we have room to tuck in a little tea party in a box or other goodies, too.  To be clear, those items don’t come in the kit, but there is room for you to add your own should you choose to do so.

Pretty pastel satin ribbon binds the individual bird houses together.  You can see more of the details in the video tour below.

A Little Bit of Everything

Of course, we make traditional style cards in this kit, too.  And I share some of my sneaky card making tricks in the video tutorials.

The collection offers a lovely variety of spring colors and shabby chic images like the ones featured on these slimline cards.

And because the collection has a beautiful border sheet in it, I had fun making various belly band card designs.  These double gatefold cards sport a pretty belly band.

And these double gatefold cards are easy to mail, thanks to the neat belly band design.

And of course, I had to include some of my favorite easel cards in the kit.  These fold down flat so they are easy to mail, too.

Button Farm Club My Sweet Card Kit Reveal

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.

Traveling this summer?  This is the perfect “take along” kit because everything you need to complete the projects is at your fingertips.  You just need to add a few basic crafting tools and supplies like scissors, paper trimmer, scoring tool and your adhesive of choice.

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!
