Have a Beautiful Day

Have a Beautiful Day

Hi everyone!  I’ve got a CAS card for you.  Those that know me know that this is well outside of my comfort zone LOL!  I am so not a CAS girl but I thought I would put my best foot forward for those that love that quick and easy card.  There are no frills here but I think it’s so effective.  I must admit it was a struggle but I fought back my urge to embellish and to let the simple beauty of the stamp be the focal point, as hard as it was, I am glad I did.

Memory Book and Storage Box

Hi everyone!  I am delighted that you have popped by today :)   Welcome to Wednesday and as always I am here with some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you!  I have always loved Memory Books so I created a bit of a different twist on one for you today.  Also as a bonus, you need to store the Memory Book somewhere so I also made a box for the storage!

Fold Over Pillow Box

Fold Over Pillow Box

Hi everyone!  So happy you popped by :)    I have a quick post for you today.  I have always loved Pillow Boxes and when I saw the template here for this version I just had to give it a go.  I pulled out some of my very cherished Pion Paris Flea Market paper collection and this is what I came up with.  The Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret was the perfect flower for this project.  I really love the elegant vintage look!  I hope you like it too  :) and would love to hear your comments!

By Request – Accordion Fold Card

By Request – Accordion Fold Card

Hi everyone!  I am delighted that you have popped by today :)  Today I want to share with you a tutorial I made for an Accordion Fold Card that you can create without buying the die!  This can be done free-hand, using other brands of dies or your electronic cutter.  For ease, I used both.

You Brighten My World

You Brighten My World

Hi everyone!    It’s Wednesday and as always I am here with some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you!  My project today is a fun organizer chest that I thought would be great gift for someone special in your life and I thought the gorgeous colors in the new Peacock Paisley Paper Collection brought this fun little organizer chest to life!

Brighten your world with the sparkling colors and mesmerizing motifs of Peacock Paisley, the exquisite spring release from Heartfelt Creations.  This lush collection sparkles with jewel tones of topaz, sapphire, amber, emerald and turquoise.  The artistic flair of exotic peacocks, intricate paisleys, frilled feathers and delightful daisies will captivate your imagination and energize your creativity.  Six sumptuous sets of intricately designed, deeply etched red rubber stamps are the perfect companions to a vibrant paper collection that is overflowing with card fronts, cut apart pages, vivid artwork, pre-designed layouts and beautifully layered backgrounds.  The Delightful Daisy Die cuts 7 perfect floral layers with one pass through your cutting system.  Whether you want to preserve life’s most beautiful moments, create with mixed media techniques or design keepsake cards, you’ll be proud as a peacock to present the sophisticated elegance of Peacock Paisley.

There is lots storage room inside for special keepsakes etc. and to provide a bit of separation to the compartments, I  added some dividers.  I really love how the top compartments slide out to reveal even more storage in the bottom layer of the chest.
