Check out this quilled image that Nancy made!

to the next level, give us a call!

Fall's A-Comin'

Fall will be here before we know it.
Here are some Fall-looking cards that Rachel created recently.

Don't be fooled by the fabric.  At first glance, it looks like it's too big to use on cards.

Here is another card.

(inside of card)

It is a very simple-to-make card, but looks lovely.
It comes from this fabric.

And here is yet another Fall card.

Here is the fabric used to create it.

You can use fabric for more than just cards and sewing projects.
Here are some favors Rachel made using this fabric.

Remember the post about the Scrapbooking With Fabric Class?
In that post we had shown some cards that Rachel made for her MIL's birthday.
Here is another card made with that same fabric.

Notice how the fabric colors show through on the front of the card through the die-cutout.

It is a three-fold card.

We have lots of new fabrics here - a number of them are Christmas-themed.
We even have Charlie Brown Christmas!.

Convention Week Hours

We will be open our normal hours the week of 
Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention 
in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

On Friday, July 27, 2018, we will extend our hours to accommodate 
the people attending the convention.
We will be open Thursday and Friday, July 26 & 27, from 9:00 am - 8:00 pm.


Due to the holiday last Wednesday, our fabric club met today instead of last week.
Burnsie was our hostess, and she designed this card.

Notice the yellow mesh behind the mermaid?
That came from a bag that held lemons!

The images she used on the card came from this fabric.

Rachel always creates a card for the ladies to make as well.
Here is the card that she made for club.

A Peek into Fall

Here's a little bonus to your week.
People have been missing this neat fabric;
so, Rachel pulled it out and made some beautiful cards with it.

These cards were made from these two fabrics.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Last week we showed you cards with dogs on them.
So, for you cat-lovers, here are some cat cards.

(insides of cards)

This line of fabric is called "Catitude."

This piece comes in an 8 1/2 inch panel and offers a lot of options for card-making.

Rachel also made mug mats with this fabric.

Happy Fourth-of-July to all of you!
(We are open today!)

Beach Scrapbook Page Class

On Saturday, July 14, we are offering a class on making a beach scrapbook page layout.
We wanted to give you a sneak peak at what we'll be making in this class.

Shirley will be teaching this class.

She will be teaching how to blend the distressing inks to create a beautiful background.

We still have some spots available for this class.
Call us if you are interested in attending!

Rachel's mother-in-law (the Pot-Pie Maker 😊 )
is celebrating her birthday this weekend.
Rachel made this pack of cards for her as a gift.

(inside of two of the cards)

She also made this gift box to hold them.

All these flowers came from one fat quarter of this fabric.
(And there is still some flowers left from it!)

It's quite warm in our corner of the world!
Stay cool and craft on!
