    Old Farmers

    My dad has a birthday this week so I it was time to come up with another card.  You know those sayings “Old ____ never group up, they just keep ________.”  Well I had that thought running through my head all day.   My Dad has been on a farm or farming all his life so I was trying to put the thought and the practice together.  I grabbed my sticker and rub on stash and fumbled through.  I knew I had some farm related stuff in there somewhere.  I came up with some farm related Creative Memories stickers and this newer, “On the Farm,” rub on.  So this is…

    Rock On Birthday Card

    Sometimes, in my case most of the time, your day doesn’t go quite like you planned.  For instance LB (little boy) stayed home from school.  He has the cough, the aches, the pains and just feels like crud.  That meant a day of rocking in the chair.  While I’m happy to do it, it does change my day.  While rocking away the morning we heard a pretty big thud upstairs.  Oh, here we go.  The wind is blowing like crazy today so I wondered what the damage was.  Unfortunately is was death by Windex.  A bird did a kamikaze straight into my living room window.  Needless to say he left…

    Card Made with the Let’s Party Collection

    Lot’s of birthday parties for lots of classmates this week.  What a wild weekend I had.  3 kids went 3 different directions.  I think I put on about 150 miles in total carting kids back and forth and to and fro.  In the mean time I created a Let’s Party collection in SVG, PDF, SCAL and MTC formats.  This is one of the cards I made with the collection. This collection is now available for purchase in the Adams Acres Store. [wp_eStore_buy_now_fancy id=18]

I hope you enjoy it. MY GIRL

    Aleigh’s card

    I hope she got this card in the mail last week before she sees it on facebook.  This card has some dimension made possible with Glue Dots.  I love the colors and the color blocking on the card.  Aleigh is quite the crafter and card maker herself.  I think she was sending homemade cards long before they were all the rage.

    Birthday Box Cake

    My Girlfriend has a BIG Birthday!  A card wouldn’t due for such an occasion so I created this cake for her and filled it with chocolate.  I got the call yesterday that the cake arrived.  She was surprised and I really happy to find it in the mail box. This was my first cake of many I hope to make.   Along the way I learned a few tricks so that you can avoid some of my pitfalls. 1.  Cut 10 boxes for each layer. 2.  Score absolutely every line with a bone folder before you decorate or build any of the pieces. 3.  When you decorate the cake think…

    Sweet 16 Card with a Cherry SVG

    Another milestone for my niece she is now 16.  What a big year for her.  Driving and more responsibility as well.  Below is the Sweet 16 card I made for her.  There is a cherry SVG that you will find in the June Download.  You can get the password by joining the email list found in the right navigation bar.
