Autumn Cards

Yes, we did post earlier today but I'm sure you all don't mind a bonus post! 

Rachel finished these autumn cards today and they are just gorgeous!
The fabric is beautiful and is outlined with gold:

Here are pictures of the cards, but I promise they are even more stunning in real life!

Enjoy your evening everyone!


Summer Cards

Good morning to you all!

The featured cards today are all about summer! :)

here's the bug and flower cards:

The card on the left is an A2 card. The one on the right measures 8.5" x 3.75" and fits great inside a #10 envelope!

the insides:

a tablet and pen set using the same fabric:
(picture on the right is a close-up)

these cute & simple favors were made by layering the flowers and gluing the hershey kiss as the center:

All of these projects were made with the fabric on the left; the two bolts on the right are in the same line and have great possibilities as well!

We made both a muted & vibrant colored card using this mason jar & daisy material:

Here is the muted version using a pale yellow and light blue:

And the brighter version: 

Enjoy your summer!

Paper Crafts for Gift - Giving

Good morning everyone!

So to catch you up on what's been happening here at the farmhouse...
Rachel taught Paper Crafts for Gift-Giving this past Saturday and created three gifts that are just too cool. Homemade gifts are always extra special in my opinion. :)

Gift #1 Summer bag with card

This 4 x 4 square card fits perfectly into this summer themed bag. 

Here is the die set that was used:

Gift #2 July 4th favor

 A piece of candy was attached to the inside. The Daisy tag die was used on this favor; this would be the same tag die we used on the fold-out card that was posted a few weeks back. 

The flags came from this fabric:

The words came from this holiday stamp set which includes everything from Father's Day, to Christmas, to graduation!

Gift #3 Candle box holder

I think this is my favorite gift Rachel made. 
The box is 3.5" x 1.75" and holds two small candles perfectly.  
The paper and die used:

Here is another version of the candle box holder:

And just for fun check out these July 4th cards Rachel made:

Enjoy your day!

Father's Day

Father's Day is just around the corner.

I love these cards that Rachel and Marge finished this week!

This is Rachel's card:

The words just make this card! The set includes words for grilling, golfing, mowing, beach, etc. 

The fabric border looks like this:

and the word "DAD" was cut out with this die set:

Marge used the anchor words from the same stamp set to create this:

both of these beach fabrics were used:

Hopefully this gets you inspired to make a card for the Fathers in your lives!

Enjoy the afternoon!

Tea-Bag Folding Class

Many of you have noticed the pleated skirt card with the tea-bag folded image that's on display here at the store. The pleated skirt fold is a great way to use 2-sided papers and the tea-bag folded image gives it a unique look. 
If you would like learn more about these techniques sign up for our class Wednesday, June 15th from 9:30-11:30 am. The class is taught by Nancy Salzman. You will make and take home one card. The class is $20/person and there are still spaces available. Call today to reserve your space (we do take credit card payments over the phone). 

Club Cards

Good afternoon!
Yesterday was card club here at the store. Check out the cards that were created by Nancy Salzman and Rachel!

 Have a wonderful day!
