Round Easel Card

Round Easel Card

Hi everyone!  Thanks for popping by today 🙂   Welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

This week at Heartfelt Creations we are having a cross promotion with Creative Embellishments and I want to show you a fun little round easel card I created featuring the fantastic Creative Embellishment chipboard pieces!  I have not had the opportunity to use these wonderful chipboard pieces before but I just love them and can see many a project using them in the future.  I love the added element that they give to your projects.

and here is a closer look at the beautiful sunflowers.  I’ve been making quite a few lately and each one is always different. It’s fun to experiment and create such unique flowers each and every time don’t you think?  I guess that is why they say, no flower is exactly alike, all unique in one form or another…

Old Fashioned Fall Harvest Crate

Hi everyone!  So happy you popped by 🙂    Welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

Last weekend I was cleaning up down at our little cottage in the valley and I found some lovely old vintage crates that were used for Apples so I decided I would use this as inspiration for this week’s post.  The apple crates looked like these:

and here is what I came up with using the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Paper Collection and coordinating stamps and dies:

and here is a closer look at the beautiful classic sunflowers.

Products Used:

HCPC 3626 – Classic Sunflower PreCut Set
HCD 745 – Luggage and Tags Die
HCD 751 – Cut Mat Create 2A Die
HCD 752 – Cut Mat Create 2B Die
HCD 753 – Classic Sunflower Die
HCDP1 247 – Classic Sunflower Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Bright Ideas Prills

Project Instructions:

Other products:  Off-White Card Stock, Postage Stamps Die, Leafy Squares Die, Teresa Collins Woodgrain Cottage Embossing Folder, Distressed Inks, 3D pop dots, Bling from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

To make my crate I started by making 4 – 3D slats out of Off-White Card stock 10″ x 4 1/4″ and score on the long side at 1 1/4″, 2″, 3 1/4″ and the 4″ marks.  On the short sides score at 1/4″ mark from each end.  These will fold into small 3D slats.  For the sides I used the same principle but cut a piece of card stock 5 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ and scored on the short side at the 1/4″, 1/2″, 5″ and 5 1/4″ marks and also on the long side at the 1/4″ and 1/2″ marks from each side.  Finally the base is made the same way but this time cut a piece of card stock 9 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ and score at the 1/4″ and 1/2″ marks on all 4 sides and finish by attaching another 9″ x 6″ piece of card stock on the bottom. (Hint:  you can use this same method to make envelopes for cards that are to think to fit into a traditional flat envelope!)  After you assemble all the pieces you can decorate to box as desired.  I did not fill the box with anything but it could be easily used for dinner rolls at Thanksgiving!  Finally add some flowers.  Stamp, die cut and distress some of the amazing Classic Sunflower PreCut stamp set and finish the centers of the flowers with Bright Ideas Prills or some bling.

Have I mentioned lately how thankful I am to all of my lovely followers who support me each and every week?  I can’t tell you how much I truly appreciate your kindness and blog friendship.

Have a wonderful day!

Country Keepsake Box

Country Keepsake Box

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for popping by 🙂    Welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

Today I want to share with you a project which I created using the  new “Classic Sunflower Collection”.  It’s my verson of a Country Keepsake Box to house all your little collectibles or easily could be used as a box to give some homemade preserves to that special someone.  This collection really reminds me of harvest and it’s one of my most favorite times of the year.

and here is a closer look at the beautiful sunflowers that you can create using the Classic Sunflower PreCut stamp set and coordinating die.   I just love how they turn out!

Products Used:

HCPC 3626 – Classic Sunflower PreCut Set
HCPC 3631 – Chick Retreat PreCut Set
HCD 745 – Luggage and Tags Die
HCD 750 – Cut Mat Create 1B Die
HCD 753 – Classic Sunflower Die
HCDP1 247 – Classic Sunflower Collection
Art Institute Glue – Dries Clear Glue
Bright Ideas Prills
Labels 1 Grand Nestabilities

Project Instructions:

Other products: Off-White Card Stock, Orange Card Stock, Grand Decorative Labels One, Distressed Inks, Burlap, String, Ribbon and flat backed pearls from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting the 2nd largest Grand Decorative Labels One 2 times, this will be your top and bottom.  Next, cut 2 Labels 1 Grand Nestabilities out or Orange and finish by cutting another Grand Decorative Labels One using a piece of paper from the Classic Sunflower Collection.  These pieces will form the top and bottom of your box.  For the sides cut 2 – 5 3/4″ x 4″ strips of paper and score them on the long edges at the 1/2″ mark.  The other 2 sides are strips cut 6″3/4″ x 4″ and these are scored at the 1/2″ mark on all 4 sides.  Once you have them all cut and scored assemble the side pieces together and then glue them to the base.  To attach the top I like to cut another piece of card stock and glue it to both the back of the box as well as the lid to act as a hinge.  You can then cover the hing with extra card stock to hide the edges.  Finish the box by decoration with more paper from the Classic Sunflower Collection and then start working on the lovely Sunflowers that come as part of this collection!   Stamp, stamp, distress and die cut out some of the lovely Classic Sunflowers, assemble and finish it off in the center with some Bright Ideas Prills!

A very special thanks to all of my lovely followers and visitors who support me each and every week.  I truly appreciate your kindness and blog friendship.

Have a wonderful day!
