Chunky Trucks & Flannel Gnomes

 Rachel created these cute cards.

(insides of cards)

(inside of card)

She stitched on the front of the card with her sewing machine.
That is what you see on the left side of the inside of the card.

She used these two fabrics for on her cards.




Rachel also created these fuzzy gnome cards.

(inside of card)

(inside of one card)

She used this fabric to create her cards.
It is flannel; so, it feels so soft and fuzzy.

#601 (2/3 yard panel)

We hope you are staying cool in your part of the world!
It's hot here!

Lemon Netting & Quilts

 Have you ever bought lemons in a netted bag?
Next time, don't throw the bag out.

Burnsie was our hostess 
at our monthly club meeting today,
and she had the ladies make a card
with this unique item on the front of it.

(inside of card)

The ladies used this fabric for on their cards.


These fabrics are also a part of this line.



Rachel created this card for the ladies to make
in the club meeting as well.

(card opened)

She used these fabrics on her card.


She used a grid die and cut it out of two different colors
to make the quilt on her card.

She used the green grid and filled in some of the spots 
with the red squares that popped out of the grid after cutting.
She then placed her red/white quilt patches into the grid squares.
And that is how you make a quilt without sewing! 😉

I also used #598 fabric to create a mirror-fold card.

(card opened)


We have a new quilt-die at the Farmhouse!

Rachel created these cards with this die.

(insides of both cards)

She used this fabric to embellish her cards.


Happy Wednesday!

Sunflowers & Leaves

 Here are some fall cards Rachel created.


(inside of card)

The sunflowers came from this fabric.


She used sentiments from this stamp set.

Here is an A2 card.

Simple additions to the inside of your card
make it more attractive.

She used this fabric on her card.


The sentiments on her card came from this set.

Be sure to check out new autumn scrapbook paper ...

... and our Christmas Graphic45 papers ...

... the next time you visit the Farmhouse.
Hope to see you soon!

CK Lancaster Scrap-booking Convention

 Please note a change in our hours.
 On Friday, July 29, 2022 only,
our hours will be 9 am - 8 pm
because of the 
CK Lancaster Scrap-booking Convention.

Barbecue, Sunflower, & New Penny Black

 Rachel created this barbecue scrapbook 2-page layout.

She used these fabrics.



Rachel also created this card with these same fabrics.


We also wanted to show you some new items
that we have at the Farmhouse.

This is a sunflower 3D embossing folder and stencil set.

You emboss a 5x7 piece of card stock
and then use the stencils with 
blending brushes and inks to color it.
(You will need to adjust your plate set on your embossing machine
to accommodate the deeper embossing folder.)

Rachel and I created this simple card using this set.

Here are some new Penny Black items.

I'm showing both sides of a package on each photo
so that you can see a sample of how the die is used.
(since we haven't had time to make any ourselves yet.)

(You know Rachel will be filling the "O" 
on this die with fabric images! 😉)

This die gives a snowflake-frame edge.

Here are some Penny Black Christmas-sentiments stamp sets.


These sets are called "Masterpieces Made Simple."
They come four cards in a pack.
They are "a card waiting to happen"
(in Rachel's words 😉)

Have a great weekend!
