Scrapbook Page Class

If you have signed up for Shirley's Sunburst Scrapbook Page Class on July 19, here is a sneak preview of the page we will be creating in that class.

We still have spots available in this class if you are interested in taking it.

Here are some cards made from some new fabric we received recently.

This is the fabric that we used for these cards.

The stamps that were used were featured on the April 19th blog post.
We also have this humorous coordinating fabric to go with it.

Be sure to call us if you are interested in any of the summer classes.
Enjoy your day!

Dahlia's and Hedgehogs

Here are some more creations from the Farmhouse.

We used this fabric . . . 

(aren't they beautiful?) . . . and this paper . . .

(the reverse sides of the papers)

along with one of the quilt dies that we featured in the May 10, 2017 blog.
Here is another card featuring the dahlias.

We used this die.

For this card, we combined the dahlias along with some cute hedgehogs.

Here are the additional fabrics we used.

Baby Cards

Do you need an idea for a "New Baby" card?  Check out this simple card that Rachel made.

She used this adorable fabric that is easy to cut apart . . . 

. . . and this stamp and die.

So simple and so cute!

Cards for Men

Father's Day is coming up and we want to show you 
some more creations from the farmhouse.
At first glance, you wouldn't think you could use this beautiful fabric in card-making.

Here is what Rachel did with this fabric.

She also used these fabrics in conjunction with the above fabric.  The animals come in a panel, and I am posting two pictures in order for you to see all the animals 
that are available in the panel.

You can also use these fabrics for other creations.  Here is a folder Rachel decorated.

If you have men in your life that are more inclined towards fishing, 
here are a few card ideas for them.

We used these fabrics to create them.  The fishing lures come in a panel.

Be sure to stop by the farmhouse for more ideas!
