Anniversary Cards

Here are some anniversary cards that Rachel made last week.

She used these fabrics to create these cards.

She also used these nail-heads to embellish the cards.

Rachel made four-card-packs to sell and 
Sylvia made a beautiful zippered bag to use as a gift-bag to hold the cards.

The inside of the bag is lined with this coordinating fabric.

Hoping you are all having a Merry Christmas!
We just completed the winter class schedule and will be posting it soon!

Have a Happy New Year!

Rachel asked me to use this bee fabric to make some cards.

Here is what I came up with.

(inside of the card)

I used this fabric as the background.

I also used this die to create the honeycomb effect on the first card.

I printed the words off of the computer.
We made copies and have them for sale here at the Farmhouse.

Just a reminder that we will be closed on Christmas Day
and New Year's Day.  We will also be closed December 30th 
for family gatherings.

Merry Christmas to all of you!

Merry Christmas

Christmas is almost here!  Rachel made some more cards for the season.

(the inside of the card)

She used this fabric to create this card.

Here is another card that Rachel made.
This card has a little envelope on the front to hold a gift card.

(the inside of the card)

Here is the fabric she used for this card.

She used this die set from Lawn Fawn to make the gift card envelope.

The words on the front of the card come from a Penny Black die.

Rachel also made these cute magnetic post-it note holders with this fabric.
(They would make a great stocking-stuffer or little hostess gift!)

She used a spellbinders die to create the holder.

She packaged them up to sell (if you need a little gift for someone), 
and used these two dies to create the cute topper to the gift bag.

We hope you are enjoying your Christmas season preparations and activities!

Penguins and Owls

It's getting chilly in our neck of the woods.  So Rachel pulled out the penguins
and used them to embellish this gum favor that she made.

I made these penguin cards with the same fabric.

This is the penguin fabric  . . .

. . . and this is the background fabric that I used.

We also used this background fabric to make some tags for gifts.

The owl came from this cute fabric. (Excuse the wrinkles - we only have fat quarters left.)

We hope you are enjoying this festive season!

Paper Quilts

Rachel made these cards over the weekend.

She used a die and stamp set from Purple Daisy Design to make this quilt look.

She stamped the image and colored it.
Then she used the die to cut out of a small-print paper 
and placed it over top of the stamped image.

The paper came from this paper pad.

She then cut a grid with this die (of red/green) to place over top 
of the other two papers to give it the finished quilt look.

The little mouse on the front of the second card is a button 
that you can find at Farmhouse Memories.

She also made these cards from the cutouts of the dies , . .

and this fabric.

Our Christmas Sale is going on this week.  Don't forget to make use of the coupon!

For those of you who have your Christmas cards all made, 
you can stop by to see the new Easter fabric that just arrived!  😊

Holiday Cards

It is hard to believe that the Thanksgiving holiday is upon us already!
Here is another card Rachel created.

She used these adorable brads for the outside of the card.

She also used these fabrics to embellish the card.

With Christmas right around the corner, Rachel made these cute Snoopy Christmas cards.

These are the fabrics that she used for these cards.

She also used this paper and die-cut for the front of the card.

Don't forget about our Christmas Stock-up Sale starting this Saturday!
We are closed Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday, but will be open on Saturday.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
