Christmas Card Swap

Today was Christmas Card Swap at the Farmhouse.
Those who signed up for the class made multiple copies of a card designed by themselves (they were notified ahead of time how many cards to make), 
and gave one to each person attending the class.
There were six ladies in the class today; so, each lady received 
six different Christmas cards to take along home.
Here are the cards that they made.

Here is where you can participate.
Stop by the Farmhouse before Wednesday, September 6,
and vote for your favorite Christmas card.
The winner will receive a prize.

This is the card that Rachel made for the card swap.

Here are the insides of two of the cards.

She used this fabric which, at first glance, you would think is too large for a card.
Think again!

Can you see how she cut the pictures in half to use to decorate the inside of her cards?

You can also use this fabric to decorate other items for gift-giving.

She also used these fabrics to decorate the front of her cards.

Hoping you'll stop by the Farmhouse!

Hot Air Balloons

Here is another card Rachel made with some new fabric.

This is a pop-up card.  The balloon on the inside pops up when you open it.
She used this die to create this card.

This is the fabric that she used.

The stamps that she used came from these sets.

She used this paper for her background.

Enjoy your day!

Birthday Celebrations

Everyone has a birthday to celebrate.
Here are some birthday celebration cards.

We also made these favor boxes with the same fabric.

We used these fabrics for the creation of these cards and favors.

We used this die to create the favor boxes.

This is the glitter paper that we used, and it is one of the 5 colors 
of glitter paper that we offer here at the Farmhouse.

We are gearing up for Shop Hop coming up the end of September! 
We are expecting the passports to come in two weeks.
We'll post on the blog when they arrive.
If you are not familiar with Shop Hop, check out this website for more information. 
or give us a call for more information.

Nancy was our hostess and she demonstrated how to make these cards.

Aren't they beautiful?
