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?

Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Tea Party in a Box Tutorial with Reneabouquets:

Hello, Friends!  The Christmas train is rolling right along with this Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Tea Party in a Box Tutorial.  This is one of my “Use Your Scraps” challenges.  I’ll share all my best sneaky tricks for using tiny pieces of designer paper and a few images into a lovely 5″ x 7″ tea party in a box card.

We’re working with leftover bits and bobs from the December Banner tutorial that I shared earlier this month.  While I had quite a few images left over, I really had just a tiny bit of the Flourish patterned paper to work with.  I think you’ll enjoy seeing how I combined those bits with some lovely Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and Mulberry flowers to create this project.

Lots of Lovely Little Layers

So how did I manage to streeeeetch these designer papers?  Well, let’s just say that if you could see under all these lovely layers of images, you’d see a lot of naked cardstock.  A bountiful flower cluster and strategically placed images are a crafty girl’s best friend!

A Peek Inside

The challenge continued on the inside of this card.  I had to figure out clever ways to use odd shaped pieces of designer paper.  Thankfully, I had many of the large images from the 12×12 pad left over to help me finish the job.

We even managed to create a little flap page on the top half of the card!  I’ll share my secrets with you in the video tutorial below.

But let’s just say for now that a well-placed title covers up an obvious spot where scraps are pieced in.  It’s our secret, OK?

The Tea Party in a Box

Since I was low on designer paper, I wrapped my tea treats with cardstock.

Then I added smaller ephemera pieces to dress up the plain cardstock.  It worked really well!

Cozy Days Tea Party in a Box Folio

Simply Stories Cozy Days Tea Party in a Box Folio-RRR-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-Photo 01

Simple Stories Cozy Days Tea Party in a Box Folio for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  This Simple Stories Cozy Days Tea Party in a Box Folio is all dressed up with ribbon, trims and fall flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Chipmunk Delicate Stitched Satin and Pink & Brown Twist Seam Binding Ribbon  pair well with Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemums and this cute paper collection. (Supplies linked below this post.)

Fall is the perfect time to cozy up with a cuppa and a good book, don’t you agree?  My hubby and I have been enjoying supper on the screened in porch because these autumn evenings are lovely…but fleeting. We’re trying to make the most of them so we enjoy the antics of the frisky squirrels and songbirds along with a tasty meal.  If we happen to sit out there until moonrise…well…that’s a real treat!

That’s what inspired me to create this woodland critter themed tea party in a box folio.  It gives me all the warm and happy feels that come with fall.  I hope you’ll enjoy it, too.

Cute Woodland Critters

Do these darling woodland critters make you smile?  This dapper raccoon is part of a slide and lock mechanism for the double gate fold on this flip page.

The mechanism slides up and down on between the gates, so it’s very fun to open.

More of Mr. Raccoon’s chums are hiding inside the gate…hoping for a bit of tea!

Flips, Flaps & Pockets

The center panel holds the tea party goodies while the side panels have various flip and flap mechanisms that make it fun to open.

And cute woodland creatures can be found frolicking everywhere!

The Box Pocket

And here’s the tea party they’ve all been waiting for!  You’ll find chocolate and a Pumpkin Spice teabag in the little envelope.  And there’s an adorable bookmark to hold your place while you refill your teacup.

Good books, good friends, and lots of time for crafty adventures are what make Autumn such a glorious season.

Carta Bella Welcome Fall Shaped Tag Tea Party

Carta Bella-Welcome Fall-Heartfelt Creations Shaped Tag-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design-

Carta Bella Welcome Fall Shaped Tag Tea Party with Reneabouquets & Heartfelt Creations Tag

Hello, Friends!  Would you like to learn how to make this adorable Carta Bella Welcome Fall Shaped Tag Tea Party in a Box?  Well, you’re in luck because that is our Throwback Thursday Tutorial this week.  I woke up wondering what to make with y’all and decided it would be fun to make a tag.  And then I thought, oooh…a tag book.  Next thing I knew I had my Heartfelt Creations Tag Album Dies, Reneabouquets goodies, mixed media supplies and pretty papers all over my desk.  That’s how the process works, my friends.  I just go where the inspiration takes me!

Mixed Media Layered Pumpkin

My favorite element on this tag is this mixed media layered pumpkin.  I started with a plain white Reneabouquets Beautiful Board pumpkin. Here’s how that came together:

  •   First, I layer scraps of  designer papers over the solid pumpkin background.
  • Then I  trim the overhang and ink the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
  • Next, dab embossing ink randomly over the paper and sprinkle with Seth Apter Ancient Amber Baked Texture.  Heat emboss.
  • Now apply Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks directly to the open pumpkin overlay.
  • Sprinkle with Seth Apter Beeswax Baked Texture and heat emboss.
  • Follow the same procedure with the fancy leaves tuck ins, only color with Gathered Twigs and heat emboss with Taos Sunset Baked Enamel.
  • Make a “nest” with Spanish moss and straw, adhere feathers, twine bow and button to the stem and sprinkle liberally with green peppercorns and mustard seeds.
  • Vintage buttons make a great accent on the domed edges.
Magnetic Flap Opening

The cool thing about this Shaped Tag Die is the fact that it can be used as a shaped magnetic closure.  I’ll show you how to do that in the tutorial.  I could not resist adding a little fall dangle charm to the spine.  Cute, right?

Here’s what the mixed media cover looks like when you open that magnetic flap.

And here’s a peek at the inside spread.  This clever die makes a great box pocket, too!

I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit all these goodies into the pocket.

There’s even a little 3  1/4″ x 4 1/4″ note card/tea wallet!  This was a very fun crafty adventure, my friends!

Hello Pink Autumn Shaker Box Folio

Prima Hello  Pink Autumn-Shaker Box Folio-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Reneabouquets-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Prima Hello Pink Autumn Shaker Box Folio with Really Reasonable Ribbon & Reneabouquets

Hello, Friends!  This Prima Hello Pink Autumn Shaker Box Folio probably looks familiar.  That’s because it’s the same design as the Simple Stories The Little Things Shaker Box Folio Tutorial that I shared with you earlier this month.  I had such fun making that one, that I had to take the design out for another spin.  This time I used fall papers, pretty autumn trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon and some gorgeous Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board.

It’s so fun to see  how changing up the papers and the color palette give this sweet box folio design a completely different look.

You can follow the same video tutorial when making this version of the box.  Add a real autumnal vibe with Brown and Cream Tartan Ribbon and Pumpkin Baker’s Twine from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Isn’t it amazing how changing up the color scheme gives this project a totally new look?

A Peek Inside

I don’t know about you, but I love the dusty rose and chocolate brown color combination.

And I love the fall imagery: mushrooms, pumpkins, gourds, and falling leaves makes me so happy.

What’s in the Pockets?

Yes, I made two pockets for this version of the card.  There is the large box pocket filled with cookies, honey stick, tea wallet and chocolate (the weather has finally cooled down!). and a fun little luggage tag.  Then I also made a very simple pocket with some of my scraps and tucked in a couple more small tags.

I must have had tags on the brain, because the card is loaded with them.

The luggage tag has two die cut slots in it so I can tuck in the cute itty bitty tags. It’s actually matted onto a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ mini card base.  So there’s room inside to write a personal greeting.  You could also tuck a gift card in to the slots, so that’s fun, too.

I know some of you are not fans of pink on an autumn project.  But I love it because it reminds me of my sweet mom, who would have painted the whole world pink given the opportunity.  This is her birthday week, and she would have been 101 years old on Friday.  She would have given this Hello Pink Autumn card her seal of approval, and that’s good enough for me.
