In The Garden ... Then On To Paris!

Here are two beautiful cards Rachel created this week.

These cards came from this new fabric.

Erica created this card last week.

She used this new fabric to embellish the card.

She also used this paper as a background to the card.

This paper is from the Stamperia line of paper and makes beautiful backgrounds!
We have other colors in stock with more coming!
Be sure to stop by and check it out!

Card-Making with Fabric Club was last week.
Rachel used this new fabric to create pop-up cards.

Here are the cute pop-up cards she created for Club.

She also used these fabrics which coordinate with the rag-dolls.

Rachel used this die to cut the cards to create the pop-up effect.

Nancy was our hostess that day for Club, and she created this card for the ladies to make.

The owls make a great grad card, or even a nice 
Father's Day card (minus the mortarboard, of course).

The owls came from this fabric.

This card shows the striped paper on it to embellish it,
but some ladies used the plaid which looked really nice, too.

She used this die for the mortarboard and certificate.

Enjoy your day!

Computer Crash

We are sorry we could not update the blog this week.
Our computer crashed!  😒
We are working at remedying that, and hope to be up and running again next week.

On a brighter note, today is Rachel's birthday!!
If you stop by the Farmhouse, be sure to wish her a "Happy Birthday!"
(Email works, too!  She should be able to see it today yet.)

Until next week ...

Pop-up Cards and Father's Day

Here are some fun pop-up cards that we made here at the Farmhouse.

(inside of card)

(inside of card - love the tissue box!)

These cards were embellished with these fabrics.

We also used these dies on the cards.

The stamped message on the insides of the cards came from these sets.

Here is a Z-fold card made with the same fabrics.

Sylvia made this matching zippered bag large enough to hold four A-2 cards.

Father's Day will be here before you know it!
Rachel made these cards for the occasion.

She also made this birthday card with the same fabrics.

(insides of cards)

She used these fabrics to embellish the cards.

The messages for the Father's Day cards came from this stamp set.

Summer has arrived!  Enjoy!

Rachel made these cute note cards.  They were simple to make.

She used these two fabrics.

The word "hello" came from this die.

Here are post-it note holders that Rachel made as well.

With a magnet on the back, they work great on refrigerators, 
filing cabinets, school lockers, etc.
They make nice simple little gifts.

This is the die that was used to create this holder.

She used this fabric to embellish the holders.

For the topper of the packaging she used these dies.

She also created these mini note cards from this fabric and these dies.

She has the note cards available in packs of four with a drawstring bag to match.
This is another nice little gift to give to someone.

The words came from this very versatile stamp set.

Wishing you joy!
