Holiday Hours

Bears, Moose and Quilts

Rachel has had this fabric for awhile.
You can guess why she bought it.

See all those little quilts?  She loves quilts!
Here is what she made recently with them.

She also used these two fabrics on the card above.

(Pardon the wrinkles.  We only have fat quarters left.)

If you are looking for a last-minute favor that is easy to make,
here is an idea for you.

This is a magnetic post-it note holder.
Rachel used this die to make it.

It is easy to make and makes a great little gift.
She embellished it with penguins from this fabric.

She also used these dies to create the topper of the cellophane gift bag.

If you don't have the time to create them, we also sell these at the Farmhouse.

Happy preparing-for-Christmas!

Paper Quilts

Rachel loves creating quilts!
Here is a paper quilt.  She creates a lot of these!

(inside of card)

She used this fabric to embellish the card.

She created these quilts with the leftover pieces that were cut out with the die.

This is the Starburst die that a lot of you might have.
We've sold a lot of these quilt dies. 

She also used the Bit of Spring die to create this quilt.

This is what the Bit of Spring die looks like.

She used this basket stamp to create the basket on the front of the card.

The contents of the basket came from this fabric.

This is a new die that we stocked recently.

She used it to create the backgrounds to these Christmas tree ornaments.

Here is another ornament that she used this die as a background.

We hope you are enjoying this holiday season!
Happy creating!

Of Reds and Chickadees

Many of you who know Rachel know that she grew up in a quilt shop.
She loves to piece and sew wall hangings and mug mats.
Here are some mug mats that she created recently.

She also made a cup-cozy to hold your travel mug.
The above items make great gifts!

She made matching cards with the same fabrics.

Here are some of the red fabrics that she used.

She used stamps from these sets on the cards.

Rachel made these beautiful chickadee cards a few weeks ago.

The above cards are 5 x 7 cards.
Here are some A2 cards, too.

She used these fabrics to create them. 
(pardon the wrinkles - we only have fat quarters left!)

If you haven't been out to visit us this week yet,
there's still time to participate in our Christmas sale!
It runs through Saturday, December 1.
Be sure to stop by!

But first, here are some more Christmas cards Rachel made recently.

These cards were created from this fabric.

So ... still looking for a present for "the-hard-to-buy-for"?

We have a new item called "Sound Shapes".
You can make a Christmas tree ornament out of them!

To watch a video of this one playing, hop over to our Facebook page!

Rachel used this die and mounted the sound shape to it.

You can mount these sound shapes to your card 
or make a little gift box/bag to give it in.

Here is a view of the other sound shapes that we have in stock.

Don't forget ... our Christmas Sale starts this Saturday!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you from those of us at the Farmhouse!

Mickey and Quilts

For all you Mickey Mouse lovers,
we have some new dies that we just got in!
Rachel made this card from one of them.

Here are the dies that we have currently.  She used the one on the right for the above card.

She used the holly from this fabric to embellish the card.

We also have this stamp set to go with the dies.

I mentioned our Christmas Sale coming up soon.
One of our sale items will be our quilt dies.
Here are some cards made with one of the dies.

(inside of card)

She used this quilt die to create the quilt on the front of the card.

She used papers from this paper pad to create the quilt.

Here are two more cards made with the same die.

(inside of card)

Rachel used this fabric (as well as the holly fabric above) 
as additional embellishments to the cards.

Stay tuned for our sale flyer coming up next!
