The news hit the internet with a bang on Saturday morning and needless to say when I opened my email from CHF I almost fell out of my chair. I will sorely miss the CHF stamps that we used to teach you the wonders of stamping with red rubber. There are still a few wonderful stamps left in our store at 40% off. We appreciate your support so much as you snapped up our inventory, therefore not leaving us in a lurch! It was a moment of absolute panic in my heart when I read that announcement because I didn't know what to do. As with all things it must have it's own destiny and I must just go with the flow. So we appreciate so very much you coming to our aid and helping us find a way to move forward. We hope that the bargains you found will be enjoyed for many projects to come.
You can find inspiration and tons of how-to directions for CHF projects right here on simple dreams or over on the CLASSroom, Inchie INKlings and In Touch. Simply look in the "Categories" section and select Cornish Heritage Farms or one of the other categories such as ATC, Backgrounders and Scrapblocks, etc.
So without further ado here are a few "blast from the past" cards.
This would be the most appropriate card for today - LOL! We are doing our very best to process your orders as quickly as possible and so we apologize for the slight delay you are currently experiencing with our shipment times!
This is from the Round and Round We Go Rummage Bin stamp set. From the moment the Rummage Bin collection was released I was in love with the "artsy" style it allowed me to pursue. As it transitioned through a couple of different artists it always maintained a solid and gorgeous look! Thank you to all the women who put their hearts and souls into the creation of this line.
Creating for my children is one of my favorite things to do. The Kim Hughes collection will be one I REALLY miss and I know that we will hang on to some of these for Trina to use - these stamps were her favorites as well! Kim, your style jumps off the screen and makes me smile - I have been so very blessed to have you in my life.
The sketchy style of Nancy's Shady Tree Studio collection was so perfect for Copic and watercolor techniques! Nancy your images allowed me to play in a completely different way than I could with other lines! Thank you for the opportunity to explore your beautiful creations.
As well the Mona Lisa Moments are a line that helped me express myself over and over again! Thank you Lisa for putting so much thought into creating these expressions for us!
Backgrounders are the reason I knew of CHF from the beginning - this old Scalloped Lace has always been one of my favorites - elegant and simple to use! What am I going to do without all the choices I have had to teach with?!?
Scrapblocks were an ingenious idea that Lisa brought to fruition - absolutely loved these stamps!!! Lisa, your talents to direct the art that was brought to CHF were extraordinary - I thank you for all the brilliant images you introduced me too!
And last, but certainly not least was the ATC collections that the girls once again put their heart and soul into. Becky, Julia and Lisa (and I hope I am not missing anyone - if I am please email me so that I can add your names) this series was amazing! Good stuff I tell you!!!
Again, thank you all SO very much for your support as we presented this line to you since January 2008! We will figure out something that will help fill the holes, but as is typical with me I have to "figure it our" first. We appreciate your patience with us as we figure this out and move forward. Thank you so much for shopping with us!
