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.

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

Dogs and Paper Crafts

Here are some cute dog cards that Rachel made.

(insides of cards)

She used these new fabrics to create the cards.

She also used this paper. It is a two-sided paper.  
The picture is showing you both sides of one paper.

Rachel taught a class today at the Farmhouse called Paper Crafts for Gift-Gving.
Here is a picture of one of the items they made in the class.

This box holds 4 cards and envelopes and makes a great gift to give to someone.

Here is another one that Rachel made earlier from some new Christmas fabric.

She used these fabrics to create the box and the four cards inside.

She made two of each card to put in the box.

(Christmas is officially less than six months away!)  😊

Happy Summer to all of you!
