This class is good for anyone who wants to make cards with fabric,
but especially for those who want to learn how it's done.
In this class, each participant will be making two cards to take along home with them.

Treat Yourself

Here are some diner cards that I made the other day.

(inside of card)

These cards came from one fabric.  There's plenty on it to create a fun card.

 Rachel made these cards.

(A7 card)

She used these fabrics to make the cards.

She also made this cup-cozy with the same fabrics.

Don't forget ... we are closed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week. 

It's a very wet, cold, dreary day in our corner of the world, 
and a very good day to stay inside and craft!

Bears and Babies

Rachel has been playing with the bears.
Well, in fabric at least.
Take a look at these neat cards she made recently.

(inside of card)

(insides of cards)

These cards were made using these fabrics.

We also received this vintage-looking baby fabric.

Rachel made this card with this fabric.

She used the Starburst quilt die from Purple Daisy Design to make the quilt.

We now have a perfect background die to go with the quilt dies.
It gives the lace-look around the edge of the quilt, and works with all the square quilt dies.
This also comes from Purple Daisy Designs.

Here are some more baby cards made from the vintage-looking baby fabric.

(insides of cards)

She also used this coordinating fabric with it.

Just as a side-note ...
Rachel was ordering fabric this morning.
We take note of what you, our customers, ask for.
So, if you are looking for a specific fabric, please ask.
We might order something with you in mind on the next order.

Don't forget about our sale going on this week!
We hope to see a lot of you!
