 She used the signs from this fabric to embellish the above card.

Also, over the weekend, we had a Card-making with Fabric class. 
The ladies in the class made a card similar to these. 
The above card was made using this fall paper. 

 The squirrel fabric looks like this: 
There are also cute baby foxes on this fabric that we haven't done anything with yet.

Gift Ideas for Kids

 Good Afternoon! 
Last week we had a class on gift ideas for children. Here are some of the things the ladies did in the class. 

A Pocket Card
 The inside of this card has a pocket that an Air Head candy fits into. You could also put other fun things in the pocket like money, a gift card, etc.

Here is a second pocket card: 

Those cards were made using these two Thomas the Tank Engine fabrics:

A Bookmark
 The bookmark was made with this cute fabric:

 A Clipboard
I showed some different samples with the clipboard last week, but here is one for a boy:

 Here is a closer view of the left side:

And here is a matching card to go with it. 

 The fabric that was used for the clipboard and card looks like this:
And the baseballs came from this fabric: 

Have a great week!

Simply Gorjuss Fabric

 Good Morning! 
Here is a new line of fabric called Simply Gorjuss that Rachel used to make some fun cards and gift items.
Here are the cards:

And here is a neat gift item. 
A customer gave us the idea to decorate a clipboard you can buy at Dollar Tree. 
 This is a very practical gift for children since you can clip a coloring book, word search, notebook, etc. on the right side.
 Here is a closer up of the left side of the clipboard.

And here is another one using a different image on a grey clipboard. 

 Closer up view:

The words Rachel used on the above cards and gifts are just perfect and they came from this stamp set which we do have in stock here in the store. It allows you to put words together to make your own sentence. 

And here are the 4 different fabrics: 

Have a great weekend!
