Deer & Watercolors

I needed some masculine-looking cards; 
so I picked this fabric up from the Farmhouse

These are the cards that I made over the weekend.

I added this fabric to the insides of the cards.

I also used these dies.

I printed the wording from the computer.
It is a quote I found from Paul David Tripp's writings.

Here is another one ...

I used these stitched squares to cut out my wording.

The long-needled-pine die can be used to look like some grass.
(note:  paper and wording was extras I had at home. 
They are not available from the Farmhouse.)


Rachel created these beautiful cards this morning.

(A7 cards)

The flowers look like watercolors.

She used this fabric as a background.

She used this Penny Black die.

The words came from this Penny Black set.

May your Monday be motivating!

Is your Gorjuss girl graduating this spring?
With the coronavirus pandemic and schools and schedules
in disarray, our spring graduates are feeling the effects of it, too.
They will appreciate a card in honor of this milestone in their lives.
Here's some grad cards that Rachel has been working on today.

The girls came from this fabric.

Rachel used this fabric for the background.

She used the graduation cap from this set.

The word "congratulations" on the front of the second card
came from this die set.

Here's another card.

The inside of the card is a pocket for a gift card or money.

She used these dies for the front of the card.

She used these papers - the one for a background and the other for the star.

The words came from this sticker set.

There's a white set of words just like the black set.
Sorry it's not showing up well on the picture.
The word "congratulations" on the card is the white lettering
placed on black paper.

Here is another graduation card (just hot off the press) using an owl.

The inside is also a pocket for a gift card or money.

The owls came from this fabric.

Happy Friday!

Camping & Penny Black

Rachel has been busy creating.
She is making scrapbook page kits to create the 2-page layout
on camping (that we showed to you last Wednesday), and
creating camping banners to sell individually.

She also created these cards with the camping fabric.

(A7 - work in progress)

She used these fabrics for the cards.

She used these new Penny Black stamps and dies.

Here are some other sets of stamps and dies that arrived at the Farmhouse.

She also found a box of images that her mom had cut out
and she never did anything with them.

The images came from this fabric.

We hope you are staying healthy and making memories during this time!
Put your creativity to work!



Cheryl C (not me) has been creating for us.
Look at these adorable cards fitting for these days!

She used images from these fabrics.

These fabrics are also a part of the bunny fabric line.

This fabric we cut into a panel to keep from cutting through images.

This one is also a panel.

Stay tuned for a second posting today!
While you wait, look back at the posting from last Wednesday.
We'll be looking at the camping fabric again to see what else
Rachel has been creating!

These fabrics were used as the background on the first card.

She used this paper as the background of the second card.

The words came from this stamp set.

Here are some more new fabrics we received recently.

This one is a 1-yard panel.

It's a cold, rainy day in our corner of the world.
Stay warm and healthy!
