Primitive Picture Frames

I made a few country, primitive picture frames for the Etsy shop.
I think these are my favorite creation to date -- I just might have to make myself one!
Uniquely designed so that you can change the picture anytime you want, add a favorite quote or note, or clip a small memento to the board.
Each comes with the handmade button card in the photo and the small quote card.
Available in our Etsy shop!

Scrap Quilt

One last quilt card for the gift set I'm making as a Christmas gift.
This one is made using scraps and resembles an old quilt I used as a child made by my great grandmother!
(The only thing it lacks is the yarn ties holding it together -- remember those?)

Quilt Cards

I'm making some Quilt Card Sets to give away as gifts this year.
Here are the first two in the pack.
Both designs were made exactly the same way, but if you turn the design a bit you get a different look! 
I made the quilt stars the same way as these earlier cards, but instead of making quilt squares I cut the stars out and adhered them to my card front for a clean and simple look.

Celebrating Your Love

Here's a wedding card I made for one of my husband's co-workers who recently tied the knot.
I kept it fairly clean and simple to showcase the pretty embossing.
I think my favorite part is the mini crocheted doily with the flower center.

Lace Punched Gift Bags

Something as simple as a lace punched edge gives these ordinary bags a "touch of elegance."
Available in white or...
See how pretty this bag topper looks with the lacy edge?

Candy Cane Clothespins - Gift Kit

I hand-painted these candy cane clothespins and added some glitter for extra "pizazz."
 They come with little "chalkboard" tags embellished with faux stitching and punched hearts.
Four lace punched bags (in your color choice) are also a part of the ensemble.
Pretty way to dress up your gift giving this year!
Now available in our Etsy shop.

Doily Cards

The Challenge over at the Mod Squad Blog is what inspired me to make these mini notecards.
These little cards came together in just under 2 minutes. 
Each has a pearl center on the big doily, and...
...matching stamped envelopes.
These cards are available (in sets of 5) in our Etsy shop.
