 Here is a gorgeous Nativity panel that arrived at the Farmhouse.

Too large to be made into a card?
Guess again!

Another A7 card.

The wording is even included on the panel!
All Rachel did was cut it out and back it with shiny, gold paper.
(Rachel did add a stamped sentiment on the inside of the second card.)

She used this background fabric on the first card.

She used these dies on the cards.
(The corner die was used only on the first card.)

Cooler weather is here!
Autumn is here!
Happy Fall, y'all!


Buggies and Buds Shop Hop

 We are gearing up for the Buggies-n-Buds Shop Hop
starting next Wednesday, September 23!

Rachel has been very busy rearranging things in the Farmhouse.
We are excited to have you come and see all our new displays!

If you are unfamiliar with the Buggies-n-Buds Shop Hop
or have questions about it,
for more information.

For those of you planning to do a Make & Take -
if you are concerned about handling tools that others have handled,
you may bring your own adhesive and scissors along with you.

There will be seating outside if there are too many people
for your liking in the Farmhouse when you arrive.

We're excited to see your card creation for the card contest!
(see the website for more information on that.)

Stay tuned for Rachel's latest creation!

Poinsettias & Cardinals

 Christmas is coming and there will be memories made.
Rachel created a scrapbook page layout for those memories.

The images came from this fabric.

She used these dies and this stamp set for the page as well.
The "Memories" die could be used for all different kinds of memories!
It pairs well with the stamp set.

Aren't these four-fold cards that she created with this fabric beautiful?!

She also created this A7 card using these poinsettias.

She used this die for the gold accents, and the sentiments came from this stamp set.

Be encouraged to create today!
