Scrapbooking With Fabric

Last time I told you that we are working on scrapbook page layouts.
I know it's Christmastime, but here are some beach-page layouts
that we made recently.

Rachel used these fabrics to create this look.

And (of course) she made a matching card.

The words came from this set of stamps.

Here is a two-page scrapbook layout.

The wording was created on the computer.
The flowers came from this fabric.

Rachel used the tonic studio die sets that we featured 
during Shop Hop for the left page of the layout.

And, just as a side note, we are planning a class to make the mini-album 
that this die set was intended to create.  Stay tuned for our class schedule.

Here is one more scrapbook page layout.

The lines in the water were created with an embossing folder and a white-colored pencil.
The images came from this fabric.

Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!

Polar Babies & Bunnies

Four-fold cards are so neat!
Rachel made this one.

Isn't it so cute?!
The images and background came from these fabrics.

Here is an idea to dress up a gift card.

We call this a "pocket card."

A gift card fits very nicely in the "pocket" in the right side of the card.

On our last post, we featured a post-it note holder die.
Here is a pocket card and a post-it note holder featuring poinsettias.

They came from this fabric.

We're working on scrapbook page layouts here at the Farmhouse.
We hope to feature them on the blog in the coming weeks.
Stay tuned!

You can do so much at Christmas time with holly!
It's great to decorate with whether it's real or on fabric.
Rachel made these favors for the ladies at our 
card-making club Christmas party today.

She used a die set to make it.

Here is the holly fabric that she used to decorate it.

She created this simple card and embellished it with the holly as well.

Here is another card sporting the holly.

Be sure to enjoy the simple things of this Christmas season!
