"Let's Get Inky" and Lilacs

We have a new class coming up on November 15 called
"Let's Get Inky"
Here are samples of the cards that we will be making in this class.

We will be making 3 cards in this class.  The cards are made with Penny Black Stamps and distressing inks.  The cost for the class is $20.
We still have some spots available.  
Give us a call in you are interested in participating.

Rachel made these beautiful cards over the weekend.

She used these fabrics.

She also made 4-packs of cards (2 of each style) with the same fabrics.

They fit nicely into this bag (made by Sylvia) and make a nice gift.

These fabrics were used in the cards and the bag as well.

Enjoy your day!

Fabric Club

We had Card-Making with Fabric Club this week.
Lori Furlong was our hostess this time.  This is the neat card that she designed.

She used this fabric for her card.

She also used this die as embellishment.

Rachel made these beautiful cards for club as well.

This is the fabric that she used for these cards.

She used this die for the first card to cut it into the stand-up shape.

She used this paper as part of the background.

She also used these dies to embellish the cards.

October is a beautiful time here in Paradise.
We hope you are enjoying autumn!

Rachel has been working with vegetables lately.
Here is an apron that she made.

And here is a wall hanging . . . 

. . . and some mug mats that she made as well.

These are the fabrics that she used to make these items:

This fabric tells you how many calories you burn.

 This fabric tells you how to eat healthy (maybe).

Rachel made some cards from the above fabrics.

She even made some cute little gifts using little tablets.

The word "thanks" came from a die.  The other words she created on the computer.

The vegetables in your garden are coming to an end (if they haven't already), 
but you can still use vegetables in creating other things.

Happy Fall!

Happy Fall

We want to give you a peek at what we'll be doing at the 
Twist Pop Up Card Class in November.

Barb Tanner will be teaching the class how to make this 
extraordinary folded card.  This class is scheduled for 
Wednesday, November 8th, 9:30-11:30 am.
We still have some openings in this class; 
so, call us if you are interested in attending.

Here are some beautiful cards Rachel made with fall fabric.

This fabric is great to dress-up the inside of your card as well.

She used this fabric to make these cards.

The "Happy Fall" comes from this die set.

Here is a card where she used the basket in this die set.

She also used one of the quilt dies sold at the farmhouse to cut out the front of the card.
If you haven't seen the quilt dies,
you simply must stop by to see how they are used!

Hope you are enjoying your fall!
