Frosted Windowpanes Winter Wall Hanging with Reneabouquets for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  Do you remember the old Christmas tune, “Frosted Windowpanes“?  Every time I hear that song playing, it takes me right back to my childhood Christmas memories. Our little town had one short strip of shops on its itty bitty Main Street, but oh, how magical they were to the eyes of a child!  Sidewalks were scraped mostly clean of snow, but you still had to watch out for the odd icy patch as you briskly hurried from store to store. Heavy coat, hat, mittens, boots and a sturdy scarf helped to keep out the cold, but  you could still feel the icy breeze and see your breath swirl into the frigid air. But did you care?  No, because the street lights twinkled with Christmas decorations and the storefronts were all dressed up in their holiday finery.

Decorations never went up until the day after Thanksgiving. Then all us “country folks” drove into town, snow squeaking under our tires, anxious to see the town all dressed up in its winter finery.  It was the same year after year, but I never grew tired of seeing the transformation.  Mom and I would peer into the shop windows ooh-ing and aaah-ing over the display of trees, ornaments, toys and Christmas dresses.  That memory inspired this sweet little wall hanging made with Ciao Bella’s “Time for Home” paper collection and a whole host of goodies from Reneabouquets.

Frosted Windowpane Shaker Box

Can you feel the temperature drop when you look at this icy delight?  I’ve created a mixed media background (tutorial below) then stitched it onto natural canvas.  The windowpanes are made with an Amazing Paper Grace Grid Die.

Here’s a closeup of those frosty windowpanes, and the wintry scene outside. The metal hanger was a gift from one of my sweet blog buddies.  Do you recognize it painted with white chalk paint, Becky?

Don’t you want that cozy velvet coat that our little snow ball throwing girl is wearing?  This piece, all the flowers and the shabby snowflake accents are all from Reneabouquets.

White satin ribbon is one of the featured items in the RRR December Ribbon Club Assortment.  It was such a perfect match for this project that I had to use it.  Topped with Iridescent Metallic String bows and surrounded by sliver leaves, it adds the perfect icy touch to this sweet composition.

Photoplay Winter Chalet Folio Project Share for Make & Take Tuesday

Hello, Friends!  This sweet Photoplay Winter Chalet Folio is my “Pre-Thanksgiving” Make & Take Tuesday project.  I had just enough time in my schedule (well, not really…but who can resist new paper?) to get this sweet folio put together.  After this, I plan to hang up my crafting apron and put on my pie baking apron.  You won’t hear from me again until Friday’s Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Blog Hop.

This is a busy week for most of us with houses to dust and menus to plan and trips to the grocery store.  Thanksgiving, after all, is “The Cooking Olympics”.  But I thought you might enjoy grabbing a cuppa with me before the games begin!

Although there is no tutorial this week, I will share a lovely new paper collection and a fun “DIY” Photoplay folio to share with you.  All the online sites are offering Black Friday specials, so I might as well tempt you with some new paper pretties to place in your shopping cart right?

Warm & Cozy Winter Chalet

Right off the bat, the color palette of this collection grabbed my attention.  You just can’t go wrong with blue, green, brown and cream in a winter collection!  Toss in the darling images and delightful patterns of this collection and you’ve got a real winner in my book!

Alter a Prima Resin Frame with Nuvo Toasted Almond Mousse and Metallic Wax to add to the winter vibe.  Surround the shaker frame with sparkling snowflakes, winter florals and  elegant ribbon.  Now you have a folio that  you’ll be happy to display all winter long!

Dangle Charm

Here’s a peek at the sweet little dangle charm on the album spine.  I chose charms that will transfer over from Christmas to winter with no problem.

A Peek Inside

This flap style folio offers lots and lots of room for large photos.  Each of these front flaps opens to reveal some really fun interactive pages beneath.

Look how huge this folio is when it is opened!  There are so many elements to look at that I created a short video tour so you can see them all.  I also share helpful tips as we walk through the project.

I hope you’ll enjoy walking through this Winter Chalet Wonderland with me in this YouTube video.

If you have time on your hands, and would like to enjoy archived Thanksgiving posts from years gone by, please click HERE.  There are even some great tutorials that might come in handy before the holiday!

I’ve added a linked supply list below this post for your convenience.

I wish you all a blessed, happy, and gratitude-filled Thanksgiving.  Don’t forget to save a slice of pie for breakfast on Friday!  I’ll see you then with my Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop post.

I am truly thankful for each and every one of you.  Sharing my passion for paper with you brings me so much joy.  Group hug, everybody!

Graphic 45 December Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial with Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!  It’s time to share our December Time to Flourish Desk Folio Tutorial.  Can you believe that we are at the end of this year-long series featuring this gorgeous collection from Graphic 45? Time to Flourish has always been one of my favorites to work with, and the addition of Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and printed Beautiful Board has made it that much more true.

Here’s a look at this month’s folio.  I’m loving the traditional red and green color palette for this month, how about you?  Instead of poinsettias, I chose some deep red Little Birdie Flowers to accent the ribbons and papers. The gold and jeweled centers really amp up the holiday glitz and glam.

Like the previous 11 folios, this one has a hidden pocket folio built into the 6″ x 6″ easel card base. If you are new to this series, you can find MORE folios in the archives.  Or you can watch the video tutorials on my YouTube channel.

Here’s the tutorial for this month’s folio.

 

It’s a little sad to be at the end of this series, but all good things do come to an end. The good news is that 2023 is right around the corner, and I’m working up some ideas for a new series. If you have any collections or brands that you’d like to see in 2023, please let me know in the comment section below.  I’ll do my very best to incorporate some of  your suggestions in my planning.

UPDATE: There will be no Make & Take Tuesday or Throwback Thursday tutorials next week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.  I have family coming in, a new grandson to enjoy, and a house to clean and pies to bake!

The Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop is on Friday, so I’ll see you all then!  Until then, I wish you all a blessed, happy, gratitude-filled and delicious Thanksgiving!

Yuletide Interactive Christmas Folio

Blue Fern Studios-Yuletide-Christmas Folio-Really Reasonable Ribbon November 2022 Blog Hop-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design- Photo 01

Blue Fern Studios Yuletide Interactive Christmas Folio for the RRR November 2022 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  This Yuletide Interactive Christmas Folio is my inspiration project for the Really Reasonable Ribbon November 2022 Blog Hop.  Welcome to the hop!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.

This month we are featuring the elegant Precious Metals Ribbons from the November 2022 Ribbon Club Assortment.  Look how gorgeous they are!

Golden Ribbons

Old Gold Checkerboard Satin makes a great ribbon closure on my 6 3/4″ folio. Checkerboard Satin is one of my favorite ribbon styles because it is so soft and elegant.  The subtle pattern in the ribbon adds texture, which is always nice.  Adhere your ribbon with 1/2″ Scor-Tape for the win!  Christmas Baker’s Twine makes the perfect accent beneath my flowers and on the ends of my metal embellishments, too.

TIP: Decorate the spine of your folio with a dangle charm.  Attach a key ring to the spine with the 3/8″ Gold Satin with a Gold Metallic Edge from the Ribbon Club Assortment.  I love the way the rusty bells jingle when the album is moved.  It adds that “extra special” Christmas feeling.

A Peek Inside

Here’s a peek inside this Victorian styled folio.  There are so many interactive elements that I had to make a video to show them all with you.

I love the way the Old Gold Ribbon and the Gold edged papers work together to create a wonderful vintage vibe.

If you’d like to see all the goodies built into this interactive folio, I hope you’ll enjoy this short project share video on YouTube.

 

On With the Hop!

Now let’s hop on over and see what the lovely Cheryl has prepared to inspire you. Remember to finish the hop over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  Answer Bonnie’s “Question of the Month” and you’ll be entered in the drawing for your very own Precious Metals Ribbon Club Assortment.

Victorian Christmas Memories Slimline Card

Yuletide Slimline Card-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

Victorian Christmas Memories Slimline Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  I think you are going to enjoy the Victorian Christmas Memories Slimline Card that I have to share with you today.  It’s filled with sweet nostalgic images, rich colors and adorned with gorgeous Christmas plaid ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Once again, I’ve pulled my Mixed Media boots out of the Closet of Inspiration and Delight to create this dreamy slimline card.  Of course, Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and Printed Beautiful Board looks right at home nestled in with these stunning ribbons and trims! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Bringing Home the Christmas Wreath

Yuletide Slimline Card with Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

This sweet winter pixie is dreaming about ice skating on the pond as she bringing home the Christmas wreath!  Perhaps our Christmas Lovebirds will build their winter nest in it’s sheltering branches. It looks like they have “borrowed” a bit of the holiday ribbon to help keep themselves warm, doesn’t It?

TIP:  Create your own snow flurries by spattering the background papers with diluted ivory chalk paint.

TIP:  Add a small wood slice and pine branches to create a magical woodland vibe in your card.  Machine stitched edges, painted jingle bells, and beautiful bows make this 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ card display-worthy!

A Peek Inside

Stamp a golden wreath inside the card, then add a simple Christmas greeting for the win.  The side pocket holds a delicious Christmas tea bag and honey stick.  Now our card can double as a gift!

Don’t you wish we could step into this card and feel the crisp winter air bite at our cheeks, hear the sweet birds singing, and smell the aroma of the freshly cut pine?  Well, we can if we just use our imagination!
