Valentine's Cards

Valentine's Day is coming up in just a few short weeks!
Here' some inspiration to get some cards done for those you love.

Each card is pictured with the fabric that was used. 

Card #1

Card #2

The words on the outside of the card came from two die sets: "just for you" and "someone special". Both sets sell for $2.99 each.

Card #3

The oval pictured is size large and was crocheted by Rachel's mother. 
The die comes from the set below:

Card #4 and #5

Both of these cards were made by Janae using the Brother Scan & Cut machine. 

Card #6 and #7

The oval that was used on card #7 is the smaller size, also done by Rachel's mother. 
The large size is $3.99 and the smaller size is $2.99. 
Also, the fabric used on the inside of card #7 is the same piece that was used on card #3

There are many papers and other embellishments that were used that I didn't list. If you would like to know more stop by the store and see our selection first hand or call/email us. 

Have a good afternoon!

Fabric Club

Good morning everyone!

The card making with fabric club met yesterday for the first time this year. A few new ladies decided to join the fun. :) 

Linda Dean was the hostess. These are the cute teddy bear cards she made:

 The following three fabrics were used:

Rachel created these shoe cards: 
I love the embellishments Rachel added to the shoes! You can't quite tell in this picture but she used sticker embellishments on the shoes straps (above) and on the toe of the shoe (below). 

The pattern for this card is available in store and the finished size is 5 x 7. It's a great way to use larger images!

The shoes come from this panel:

Here's a closer look:

 This red zebra print was used on the border of the cards. It looks a little orange-ish in this picture but believe me, it is a true red! 

The words came from this pack: 

There are a few more spots available if anyone else would like to join the club yet. Give us a call at 717-442-1907 or email us at if you're interested! 

Have a wonderful day!
