Fabric Frames & Red Wagons

 Have you ever noticed this fabric in our store but didn't know how to use it? 
Well, we finally made samples with it. See below:

The frame in this card is from the above fabric. In case you didn't know, you CAN stamp on fabric which is what Rachel did in this card (the words are stamped). 
 The background in the above card is this fabric:
Again, the frame is fabric and the words are stamped. 
 And the background is this fabric:

A Tribute to Ruth Davies...

 Ruth was not only our customer; she was our very dear friend. She had a huge heart for the sick, hurting, and those in need and had her own ministry by sending her handmade cards to people in need of encouragement. In her calm, caring, and humble way, Ruth was a blessing and an inspiration to everyone that knew her. We rejoice in knowing that she is in a far better place. Ruth, if you are reading this from heaven, know that you are greatly missed! 

 Below are photos of the the ladies in the Card-making with Fabric Club that Ruth was a member of and also photos of some of Ruth's beautiful handmade cards.

-Janae for everyone here at the Farmhouse

Flowers & Burlap

 Here are some pretty flowers for Spring!

 The ladies from the Card-making with fabric played with these flowers and burlap on Wednesday.

 The paper we used is the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered paper. 
Here is a picture of the different colors we carry.

 Here is a close up of one of the papers

 And we also used this Tim Holtz ribbon pack that 
matches perfectly with the different colors of paper.

The second card we showed above, we have packaged up into a card kit which has all the supplies you need to make the card.

 And while we are on the subject of burlap, here are some new burlap flowers that came in last week.

Enjoy your week!
