Feather Fabric

Good morning everyone! 
Today we're going to show you the many possibilities you can create with this feather fabric:

First, there is the calendar...

Then the bag...

...with cards inside!

Here's a closer look:



The die and stamp set below were used on the above cards. 

 And finally, this little wallet/phone clutch...

The clutch was made by Rachel's talented niece Lynnae and the idea came from pinterest. Check out Farmhouse Memories board for the directions! 

I hope you all are enjoying this Christmas season! Happy New Year!

Putting images inside a card like this is a great way to use up large images!

New Product

Are you looking for a gift for a hard-to-shop-for scrapbooker? We just got in a typewriter from We R Memory Keepers that would make the perfect gift! This machine enables you to quickly add wording to layouts cards and other projects! A variety of typewriter ribbon colors, journaling cards, envelopes, treat bags, and other additions can be bought separately and used with the typewriter. Stop in or give us a call for more info!

Below is an example of what the print looks like and the journaling cards you can write on.

Here's more ideas...there are so many possibilities! 


Red & White Christmas

Good afternoon!

If you've been to the store recently you would have seen our new "red wall" behind the register displaying red & white cards, quilts, and mug mats. Most of the things we carry at the Farmhouse are supplies and tools for you to create your own projects, but we do sell a variety of hand made items as well. If anyone's still looking for Christmas gifts these handmade projects would be a great choice! 

the miniature quilts...

...and mug mats of course! These are only a few of the many Rachel has displayed- red & white and otherwise!

There are a a variety of cards too: 

The card below was created with the 3 in a row die we used for our shop hop make and take. We finally have them back in stock!!


The snowflake stamp that was used on most of the above cards sells in an individual pack and reads, "A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!" 

There is also a newly finished bag that Rachel made using the loop handles (right) we sell in store. 

Many of these projects were created with the fabric on the left. Several of the cards included the fabric on the right.  

On another note, we're brainstorming ideas here for our class schedule. If there is a particular class you would enjoy taking we'd love to hear about it! You can contact us via email @ or by phone @ 717-442-1907 with your suggestions.

Thanks and have a wonderful afternoon!
