Wedding Cards

Have you seen our newest wedding fabric?
This line is called "I Do" and includes 4 bolts. 

This is a close up of the above fabric:

We made plenty of cards with these fabrics and an assortment of dies. I'll show each card and the die that was used to create them below each picture. 

Card #1
 Outside: image at left
Inside: image at right


Card #2


Card #3

Card #4

Card #5

We even made a scrapbook page!

The "Mr." and "Mrs." were used from the set to the left.
The "&" was used from the set to the right.  

This large die set was used as the focal point on the page. I took the picture with my hand so you can envision the size a little better. Keep in mind my hands are smaller than most. :) 

And there you have it! 
Stock up on supplies now before wedding season hits!

Spring Cards

 Is anyone itching for spring after storm Stella?
Here's some spring cards to boost your morale!



We now carry several colors of glitter paper that sell for only $.99/sheet instead of the regular $1.99/sheet.
The $.99 aqua glitter paper below was used as the background on both cards. 

  This paper comes from a new line called "Wildflower Collection". Every paper in the line has patterns created with a unique water color look. This paper was also used on the front of the cards.

This picture shows both sides of the paper:

The dragonflys were used as accents:

The flowers came from this print:

And this is the gardening tool fabric:

There are still seats available for the class this Saturday, March 18th at 9:30am. 
Come and learn to use outline stickers to create the 2 spring cards below!
Give us a call @ 717-442-1907 if you're interested. 

Enjoy your day!

Easter Cards

It's been a few weeks since we've shown anything on here due to Cheryl and I's schedules lately. So here's a few Easter cards to inspire your creativity today.

Here'a cutesy Easter card.
Notice the Tree Lawn Fawn die that was cut out of wood paper, before we had always used a solid piece which gives it a little different look. You can look back at the post from November 9th to see how it was used there. 

The inside of the card:

This fabric was used as the background:

These are the rabbits that were used on the card:
