Sweet Memories Vintage Baby Girl Folio Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  I don’t know what it is about baby projects, but creating them always makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  Today I have a a Sweet Memories Vintage Baby Girl Folio Tutorial to share with you.  The folio base is my own unique design, and I’ll show you how to create it in the video tutorial below.

This would be such a wonderful baby shower gift!  I’ve used papers from Little Birdie Crafts – Vintage Reflections, Aquarelle, and True Love Story 12×12 Paper Packs.  Little Birdie Crafts White Gesso, Pink Ballet Acrylic Paints, stickers and stencils all come together beautifully to make a sweet card folio for baby.

Naturally, I had to add Little Birdie flowers to my creation.  These lovely blossoms are from the Serena Peach Blend, Daniela Peach Blend and Beaded Blooms/Moonlight flower packs.

Here’s a quick peek inside the folio where I’ve added a fun accordion fold mechanism, pocket and gift card folio.  The easy to follow tutorial will show you how to add all these elements to your project.  Are you ready to get your craft on?  Just click play, and we’ll work together to make something beautiful with Little Birdie Crafts.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope I’ve shared some tips, techniques and ideas that you can use in your own crafty adventures!

Cheerio,

Butterfly Birthday Mixed Media Card Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s Kathy Clement here, and I’m just thrilled to be sharing my very first Little Birdie Crafts Design Team Project with you today!  Since everyone I know has a birthday, I thought this Butterfly Birthday Mixed Media Card Tutorial would be a useful and fun way to kick things off.

There’s no need to be intimidated by Mixed Media!  It’s such a fun and easy way to add texture and layers to a design.  For this 6″ x 6″ card, I combined Little Birdie chipboard, Burlap Panel, Burlap Ribbon, Paints, Tags, Color Splash spray, adorable Embellishments and lovely Handmade Flowers to create a bright, happy card with loads of texture and dimension.

This cutaway card front design brings the inside of the card to the forefront.  And the cute patterns from A True Love Story Paper collection look fantastic with the wonderful patterns found in the Texture Brew Paper Pack.

With this fun tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a quick and easy gift card pocket inside the card base.

And we’ll design this adorable gift card wallet to tuck inside the pocket, too.

You can simply add a gift card here, or do as I did and tuck in a tea bag, mini chocolate and a honey stick to go with the tea.  Either way, your card has just become the gift!

I’ve prepared a complete video tutorial for you so that you can create your own version of this celebration card.  We’ll work together to create each element and by the time the video is done, you’ll be on your way towards creating your very own mixed media masterpiece.

I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own paper crafting.  Thanks for joining me!  I’ll be back in a couple of weeks!

Cheerio,

Kathy
