Stamperia Brocante Tag Mini Album Tutorial for Wonderful Wednesday Tag of the Month

Hello, Friends!  Today’s Stamperia Brocante Tag Mini Album Tutorial is our Wonderful Wednesday Tag of the Month.  In case you missed my announcement last week, I will no longer be doing Make & Take Tuesday or Throwback Thursday videos on a regular basis.  Instead, we have initiated Wonderful Wednesday tutorials.  We will continue our Tag of the Month, Banner of the Month, Birthday Card of the Month and Flower of the month tutorials in this new schedule.  This way, I can enjoy weekend activities with our grandchildren.  It’s a change I’m very excited about!

Stamperia Brocante: An Antique Shop on Paper

If you’re a fan of “junkin'” or “picking” at flea markets, antique shops and thrift stores, I think you’re really going to enjoy this new collection from Stamperia.  It’s just like visiting an antique shop on paper.  Filled with images of old silverware, china, teacups, teddy bears, pocket watches, cameras and millinery, it’s a treasure hunter’s delight.

I wanted to create a sense of joyful adventure right from the start, so I “antiqued” a resin frame with paints, mists and wax.  Then I turned it into a shaker element filled with old keys, pearls, beads and sequins.  Should I dress up the cover with an antique silver spoon?  Why, yes!  I think I should!   What a fun way to begin this crafty adventure.

Flip Down Tag Album

Tags make me happy.  They are versatile and lend themselves to all kinds of crafty ideas.  For this tag mini album, I wanted to create a really fun binding system that opened in an unexpected way.  Hence the spine on the bottom design of this flip down album.  There are some fun surprises on the inside, too, as you will see in the video tutorial below.

Stamperia Coffee and Chocolate Card Kit Reveal for Button Farm Club

Hello, Friends!  Today I finally get to share my Stamperia Coffee and Chocolate Card Kit Reveal for the Button Farm Club.  I’ve been planning this kit out since the end of last year, and I’m so excited to finally be able to share it with you.

Coffee and Chocolate Shaker Cards

Stamperia Coffee and Chocolate Card Kit-Button Farm Club-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

As the saying goes, “Coffee makes it possible to get out of bed, but chocolate makes it worthwhile, ” this card kit is designed to wake up your creativity and sweeten your card making skills. The kit includes easy to make shaker cards like this coffee themed beauty.

And we did not leave the chocolate lovers out of the picture.  Wouldn’t you love to walk into this bakery and pick out an indulgent treat?

New Fun Fold Card Designs

Because this is such a fun paper collection to work with, I wanted to include several new fun fold card designs in the kit.  This multi-faceted card might look intimidating to make, but when you follow the simple step by step directions in the video tutorials, it’s “a piece of cake,”

We also make some very handsome double gatefold cards with pretty belly bands. Love pop up cards?  Learn how to make a brand new slider pop up card, and a fun fold folio that you’ll see in the video reveal below.

Stamperia Coffee and Chocolate Card Kit Reveal Video on YouTube

If you’d like to take a look at the amazing array of products and cards in this Quarterly Card kit, then please enjoy this video on my YouTube channel.

Did you enjoy that video reveal?  Personally, I think this is one of my best card kits yet. It’s loaded with wonderful product, loads of fun designs and the price is only $53.99.  You’d have a hard time purchasing the individual components for that price!  But with the kit you get the added value of the tutorials and the custom-designed sentiments, too.

Stamperia Sea Land Mixed Media Folio Tutorial

Stamperia Sea Land Mixed Media Folio Tutorial-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-

Stamperia Sea Land Mixed Media Folio Tutorial for Throwback Thursday

Hello, Friends!  Grab your sunscreen and flip flops and join me as I share this Stamperia Sea Land Mixed Media Folio Tutorial.  It’s Throwback Thursday, and I’m indulging my love for the ocean with another beach themed project.  This folio base is super quick to build and can be used with any collection you have in your stash.

If you remember, a few weeks ago I showed you how to use a Spellbinders 3-D embossing folder to make a mixed media background.  Since I had an extra panel left over from that demo, I decided to use it as the springboard for today’s project.

Pockets and Tags

The folio base for this project measures 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ x 1″.  This gives us lots and lots of room to add pockets, flaps, tags and more.

Here’s a peek at the goodies stashed inside the pockets.  Doesn’t this collection make you dream of the sea?

I won’t share all the details here, as we’ll do a walk through of the project in the video tutorial below.  But I thought you would enjoy taking in the beautiful colors and images from this collection.  It’s been around quite some time, but Stamperia has just re-released it this year, and I’m glad it’s available once again.

Shells and Seahorses

The lateral waterfall in the center of the folio has shell shaped turn tabs and a magnetic closure.  I could not resist adding a seahorse and starfish collage to the facing page.

Message in a bottle?  No, but you can write one on the tag that’s tucked behind this collage page.  And there’s room to tuck a photo under the sentiment card on the facing page.

Stamperia Sea Land Mixed Media Folio Tutorial on YouTube

If you’re hankering for the sea, I hope you’ll grab a cuppa and a snack and enjoy this tutorial on my YouTube channel.

While this is not a “step by step” tutorial for all the elements, you will find the basic instructions and measurements in the description box that is below the video on my YouTube channel.  And of course, you can find a linked supply list below this post.

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll by the shore today.  I’m listing this folio in my Etsy shop, just in case you are interested.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Tag Folio Tutorial

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Tag Folio Tutorial-Graphic 45 Tags-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Tag Folio Tutorial: February 2024 Tag of the Month

Hello, Friends!  We’re going Steampunk today with a Stamperia Voyages Fantastique Tag Folio Tutorial.  This is our February 2024 Tag of the Month feature, and it is a good one!  Even if you are not a fan of Steampunk style, you will want to stick around to learn how to create this fun, interactive tag folio.  It’s one of those designs that you’ll want to make over and over again with lots of different paper collections.

Flips, Flaps and All Kinds of Tags!

If you love, flips, flaps, pockets, pull-outs, and tags, then I think you are in for a treat today.  Our tag folio is made with all 4 sizes of the Graphic 45 Kraft Tags as well as their Policy Envelope and File Folder dies.  This gives us lots and lots of room for creative fun.

Mixed Media Mayhem

Steampunk style calls for metal embellishments and finishes.  I’ve found such an easy way to add that copper patina to an embossed background, and I’ll share the steps with you in the video tutorial.

This design has little surprises tucked in everywhere, my friends.  We’ll do a walk through so you can see them all.

The Flip Side

The back side of this tag features a really fun file folder folio with pull out pages.  The small pocket on the bottom of the tag holds an ATC tag, which keeps the file folder from flapping open.

Here’s a peek inside the file folder.  Open the  little magnetic  flap on the right and see what surprises are waiting within.

How about a simple pop up page?  This is probably the easiest way in the world to make a pop up element.

  • First, cut a 7″ x 2″ strip of designer paper.
  • Next fold it in half at 3 1/2″.
  • Then fold the right hand side toward the middle.
  • Repeat with the left hand side.
  • Now adhere the left and right hand panels as seen in the photo.
  • Dress the panels up with some fussy cut images, and that’s all there is to it!

Stamperia Winter Valley Deluxe Tea Party in a Box

Stamperia Winter Valley-Deluxe Tea Party in a Box-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Stamperia Winter Valley Deluxe Tea Party in a Box with Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!  I’m popping in quickly today to share this Stamperia Winter Valley Deluxe Tea Party in a Box.  This was not a planned project.  A funny thing happened while cleaning up my work desk.  I was putting these lovely papers away one moment, and the next thing I knew I was knee-deep into creating this sweet project.  What can I say?  These papers are delightful, and I could not resist another play date with them.

While there is no tutorial for this project, I did create a little project share video where I’ll share tips and techniques with you.  I’ll add the basic folio measurements in the details box below the video on my YouTube channel.

Winter Moon

This time, I invited some Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board to the party.  How precious is this scene with the children and the deer?  It was such a good match for this paper collection that I just had to invite it in.

A Reneabouquets Holly Corner helped to frame this sweet winter scene.

A Peek Inside

Although I created this to serve as more of a lap book, I did make sure to provide some photos and journaling.  This paper speaks to me of winter creatures and starry skies that I just wanted to let it tell a story.

Loaded with flaps and pockets and even a pop up page, this interactive folio is really fun to flip through.  You’ll see all the details in the video below.

So if  you still have this paper out on your desk, here’s another fun idea to help you bring it to life.  It’s probably one of the sweetest collections I’ve ever worked with, and I wish I’d bought more!  Does that ever happen to  you?
