Everlasting Love

Everlasting Love

Hi friends!

I have always been inspired by Black and White cards so today I want to share one with you.  I took the idea of the window card I did last week and added another layer.

Memory Box

Memory Box

Hi everyone!  So happy you popped by 🙂    Welcome to Wednesday and as always I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Today while I was sitting around thinking of ideas I saw a memory box that is shaped like a big book and that got me to thinking.  Why don’t I make something that looks like a book but is more of a shadow box on the inside to feature a image or set of images.

On Your Special Day

On Your Special Day

Hi everyone!  So happy you popped by 🙂    Welcome to Wednesday and as always I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Today I want to feature a 3D project created with the new Romantique Garden Paper Collection.

Love is in full bloom with the Romantique Garden collection from Heartfelt Creations.  A romantic symphony composed in subtle shades of pink, fuchsia, green, cream and charcoal harmonizes beautifully with picturesque images of dainty hummingbirds, devoted love birds, graceful swans and delicate bleeding heart bushes.  Ornate ironwork backgrounds are in perfect harmony with layered elements of vintage sheet music, lace, flowing handwriting, scrollwork, florals, stripes and flourishes.  Six hand drawn stamp sets capture the idyllic beauty of a peaceful garden where swans glide across the surface of a glassy lake, nesting lovebirds are wreathed in flowers, and hummingbirds sip nectar from blossom laden branches of exquisite beauty.  The coordinating die cuts feature elegant swirled stems, a graduated set of bleeding heart blossoms and a majestic pair of swimming swans.  Dreamy and idyllic, uplifting and inspiring, romantic and moving as a masterfully scored concerto, this enchanting collection is a celebration of love and life amidst the extraordinary beauty of nature.

When I looked at this collection the first thing I thought of was weddings so I decided my aim was to create a proper paper wedding cake! My thinking was that this would be great for a tabletop decoration for either a bridal shower or even a table at a wedding reception.

With the Tip of my Hat…

Good Morning!

Today I am going to share with you not 1, not 2, but 3 projects to get your creative mojo going, so hang onto your hat!  You will see what I mean by that in a moment… I will warn you though, I went a little photo crazy with this post!

To start today’s inspiration off I wanted to share with you this pretty table-top decoration that holds a battery operated votive candle.

CLD90---Luminair

a closer look at the detail on the front.  The inside was lined with clear vellum so I could attach the gorgeous Wedding Vows frame.  I think this would make a lovely centerpiece if you were hosting a special anniversary party or any gathering for that matter by simply just substituting the sentiment.

Keepsake Box

Hello again everyone,

For my project this week, I have designed a neat little keepsake box.  I thought this might be a nice idea that a Bride and Groom could use to store some of their memories from their special day.

CLD86-Full

I started by making a traditional box where the top of the box opened and thought that it needed just a little more flair so I also added a drawer for some extra storage.   I used a magnet which I sandwiched between the layers of paper to keep the top of the box closed and the drawer is based on a match box but just bigger.  Once I  had both made I glued them together and then wrapped DP around both the hide the seam.

Here is a closer look at the top which I decorated using some of my favorite Cheery Lynn dies.  A full list of what was used can be found below.  The rose was created using the Build A Flower #3 die.  I thought the distressing on the DP made the rose look so elegant for this special keepsake box : )

CLD86-Closeup

Here are the list of dies used:

B143 – Tangled Hearts
B193 – Hummingbird
B227 – Love (Set of 2)
B235 – You (Set of 2)
B238 – Love You More
B241 – Rose Leaf Strip
B264 – Build a Flower # 3
B294 – Always (Set of 2)
XL-3 – Square Inverted Scalloped

I hope you can find some time to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry where the theme is Wonderful Weddings!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.  I hope you enjoyed and visit again soon.  I love to read your comments, they just make my day!
