Pin Wheel Card

Here is a card that Rachel made with pin wheel fabric.

There are 3 different fabrics used on this card.

She used this die to make the grid lines on the card.
It comes from Purple Daisy Design.

It's been a gorgeous day here in Paradise!
I hope your day has been blessed, too!

More Quilt Cards

Here are some more quilt cards that Rachel made.
They are from some of the new quilt dies that we got into the Farmhouse.

These are the two dies that she used on the cards.

She used this new line of paper on these cards.
It is two-sided paper.  Each photo shows both sides of the paper.

Here is another card that Rachel made 
using a coloring stamp and die set.

This set comes from Purple Daisy Design as well.

This Saturday, February 24, Rachel is planning to do a 
Quilting With Paper Class where the participants 
will create two different cards with quilts on them.
The cards will be similar to the cards shown above -
a "pieced" quilt and a "stamped and colored" quilt.

We still have some spots open for the class.
Give us a call if you are interested in participating!

We hope you are enjoying warm weather like we are today!
It's sunny and 80 degrees!

Quilting With Paper

Here are samples of a card that we will be making at our 
Quilting With Paper Class on Saturday, February 24.

In this class we will be making two cards with a paper quilt on it 
using a Purple Daisy Design Quilt Die.
We stocked some new quilt dies here at the Farmhouse, 
and we will be using one of those new dies for this class.
Learn to piece colors to make your quilts truly eye-catching!

This is the die that Rachel used for this card.

We still have a few openings for this class.
Give us a call if you are interested in participating.

Here are the insides of these cards.

The paper that was used comes from this pad of paper from Kaiser Craft.

Here is another adorable Easter card that Rachel made at our Fabric Club.
Barb Tanner was our hostess, and she designed this card.

This card came from these fabrics.

This is another fabric from the same line.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tea-Bag Folding Class

Here is a sneak peak at a card that we will be making 
in a class we are offering later this month.

It is the Tea-Bag Folding Class that was scheduled for the 
end of January, but we had to reschedule it.

This class is now scheduled for February 21, at 9:30 am.
We still have some openings in this class; so,
if you are interested in participating in it, give us a call.

Here is another card that was made from the 
leftover scraps from the tea-bag folded card.

We hope you are enjoying your time indoors!
If you feel the need to get out, come on over to the Farmhouse! 😉

I am so excited to show you these beautiful cards that Rachel made!


Aren't they gorgeous?!

She made all these cards from one piece of fabric.

She used an aqua-colored paper that has a beautiful sheen to it,
and embossed it to make the background of each card.

She also had plenty of options left from the fabric 
to embellish the insides of the cards as well.

If you haven't tried card-making with fabric but are interested
in experimenting with it, this would be a good fabric to start with. 
It is simple, yet elegant.

Have a wonderful day!
