This week on Wednesday, the Cardmaking with Fabric Club met in our upstairs room and we had a Christmas Party. We ate food and had a card/favor exchange.

In the end each lady ended up with these cards and favors. 

 Here is some new fabric we just got in. 
Ruth Davies made the cards below made with this fabric.

 The scalloped is from this Spellbinders Die A2 Polka Dots which coordinates with the new Card Creator dies.

 Hello to All! 
First of all, I apologize for not updating the blog last week. We were having technical difficulties with the computer and I was not able to upload pictures to the blog. Thankfully everything is now working okay and I am able to show you the photos I wanted to show you last week. 

 Last week on Wednesday, we had a Cardmaking with Fabric Class. Here is a photo of the ladies from the class with their two cards that they made.

Here is a closer up look at the first card.

 That card was made with this fabric.

 And each of the ladies received this favor item which was also made out of the above fabric.

 Here is a look at the second card from the class.
That card was made with this fabric.

Our Christmas Sale is happening this week so this would be a great week to stop by and see all the new stuff! :) I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving.

Cards with Outline Stickers

 Instead of showing a new fabric card, I'm showing cards made with outline stickers today. 
We had the Cardmaking with Outline Stickers class this morning and here are some of the cards that were shown in the class.

 This card is unique, in that, you can frame a picture behind it and use it in a scrapbook page.

 To make the card we used the Labels 8 and the decorative Labels 8 Spellbinders dies that just came in this week.

In other news, the Die D-lites from Spellbinders are now in! 
They are Spellbinders dies....just a smaller version. They sell for $12.99. 

Have a blessed Thanksgiving season!
