Wolf Cards & New Fabric

Good morning everyone!
 Wolf cards and new fabric are on the blog today!

Anyone looking for cards that don't involve flowers & butterflies? Rachel used this wolf, tree, and night sky fabric to create cards that are PERFECT for men. 

The words came from this stickers pack:

Here's a sneak peak at some adorable new fabric that just came in!

Autumn Cards

Yes, we did post earlier today but I'm sure you all don't mind a bonus post! 

Rachel finished these autumn cards today and they are just gorgeous!
The fabric is beautiful and is outlined with gold:

Here are pictures of the cards, but I promise they are even more stunning in real life!

Enjoy your evening everyone!


Summer Cards

Good morning to you all!

The featured cards today are all about summer! :)

here's the bug and flower cards:

The card on the left is an A2 card. The one on the right measures 8.5" x 3.75" and fits great inside a #10 envelope!

the insides:

a tablet and pen set using the same fabric:
(picture on the right is a close-up)

these cute & simple favors were made by layering the flowers and gluing the hershey kiss as the center:

All of these projects were made with the fabric on the left; the two bolts on the right are in the same line and have great possibilities as well!

We made both a muted & vibrant colored card using this mason jar & daisy material:

Here is the muted version using a pale yellow and light blue:

And the brighter version: 

Enjoy your summer!

Paper Crafts for Gift - Giving

Good morning everyone!

So to catch you up on what's been happening here at the farmhouse...
Rachel taught Paper Crafts for Gift-Giving this past Saturday and created three gifts that are just too cool. Homemade gifts are always extra special in my opinion. :)

Gift #1 Summer bag with card

This 4 x 4 square card fits perfectly into this summer themed bag. 

Here is the die set that was used:

Gift #2 July 4th favor

 A piece of candy was attached to the inside. The Daisy tag die was used on this favor; this would be the same tag die we used on the fold-out card that was posted a few weeks back. 

The flags came from this fabric:

The words came from this holiday stamp set which includes everything from Father's Day, to Christmas, to graduation!

Gift #3 Candle box holder

I think this is my favorite gift Rachel made. 
The box is 3.5" x 1.75" and holds two small candles perfectly.  
The paper and die used:

Here is another version of the candle box holder:

And just for fun check out these July 4th cards Rachel made:

Enjoy your day!

Father's Day

Father's Day is just around the corner.

I love these cards that Rachel and Marge finished this week!

This is Rachel's card:

The words just make this card! The set includes words for grilling, golfing, mowing, beach, etc. 

The fabric border looks like this:

and the word "DAD" was cut out with this die set:

Marge used the anchor words from the same stamp set to create this:

both of these beach fabrics were used:

Hopefully this gets you inspired to make a card for the Fathers in your lives!

Enjoy the afternoon!
