Heartfelt Creations August Blog Hop

This week I made a mini album using the Sugar Hollow paper pad.  I seriously LOVE the paper collections from Heartfelt Creations. They are packed full of everything you need to make beautiful projects. Even when I do a big project, I still have a ton of paper left over. I used a tutorial for this mini album that I bought many years ago, however, there a lot of free mini album tutorials out there on You Tube and on blogs.  I added  plenty of tucks, pockets, flaps and tags to add your photos or journaling.

This mini album is for sale in my Etsy shop HERE.

The hop starts at 8AM EDT on Friday, 31st, 2018 and closes Monday, September 3, 2018 at 11.59PM EDT. The winner will be announced on the Heartfelt Creations blog and on Facebook on Wednesday September 5th, 2018.

Heartfelt Creations July Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations July 2018 blog hop. The hop starts at 8AM EDT on Friday, July 27th 2018 and closes Monday, July 30th at 11.59PM EDT. A randomly chosen comment from a mystery blog will receive a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.

My card for this month's hop, features stamps, papers and dies from the Peacock Paisley collection. I stamped my peacock image in Bermuda Bay ink by Stampin' Up onto white cardstock, and cut with the matching die. I layered the gorgeous papers from this collection and popped my die cut peacock image with foam dots. I added some gems to the centers of the flowers and layered a sentiment from the paper collection on top.
I love to color images, but it takes me quite a long time! I love being able to use an intricate image stamped in one color on white, layered with rich colored papers. You can finish with a beautiful card in mnutes. :)

Thanks for stopping by! You won't want to miss the other creations on the hop this month. Below you will find the hop participants and links to their blogs.

December Daily 2017: Day 1

Hello! Can you believe it is officially December? I was excited to start my December Daily album. This year I am doing my album "junk journal" style. For the first page I have used papers and ephemera from Tim Holtz Christmas collection. I added a tea stained doily and some zig-zag stitching. The numbers are from the Heidi Swapp Believe collection.
I will share my cover on another day, but it is made from a package I recieved in the mail. I will bind it all when I am done with the pages. This allows me to more easily sew and stamp on the pages as I go.
If you are doing a December Daily type album I would love to see pics! Share a link in the comments if you would like and I will leave you some love. :)

Heartfelt Creations November Blog Hop-Christmas mini album

Hello! Time for another Heartfelt Creation's blog hop! Are you ready for Christmas? Do you have your scrapbook albums complete and ready to load all of your wonderful photos into? This is such a hectic time of year, I always try to get my handmade gifts and December Daily album done in advance. One less thing to worry about, eh?

This little album uses Heartfelt Creation's Sparkling Poinsettia collection. I adore this collection. I love the classic red and green color scheme and the elegant designs throughout. It also pairs beautifully with black card stock. This is a hinged mini album with plenty of tucks and tags and space for someone to add their own photos and journaling. I cannot share the tutorial for making this album, as I paid for the instructions. But...there are so many you tube videos out there that show you how to create something very similar. :) 

The Hop starts at 8am EST on Friday November 24th and closes Monday the 27th of November at 11.59pm EST.
A random comment will be chosen from the participating blogs for a $25 Heartfelt Creations gift card! The winner will be announced on the HC blog and on FB on the Wednesday the 29th of November.

Hello! Today I am sharing a couple of Halloween cards I made using stamps from Darcie's. Can I just say I looooooveeeee these stamps. Both of these cards were fairly easy to make. I used some distress inks to create the colored background. I then cut an oval from the middle, and was able to use the oval and the leftover frame for both cards. Easy Peasy!
This card I used the ghost as a speech bubble. I just masked the eyes and mustache and then stamped a sentiment inside. Love finding other uses for stamps. :)

Boo 2 You!!!

Hi there! Sharing another Julie Nutting doll tag today. I actually made this several weeks ago, but am just now getting around to posting it. The actual tag is made from upcycled cardboard. I used acrylic paints to add some details to the front and back. The doll is paper pieced using scraps of old Halloween designer paper. I colored in some shadowing and hair details. Added some flowers, leaves and the sentiment.
Perfect to tie onto a treat bag for your favorite little gal this Halloween!

You Are My Sunshine...

Hello! I made another Julie Nutting doll tag. I love paper piecing stamped images back together. I used the "Dita" doll stamp and some Maggie Holmes paper by American Craft.  The sunshine stamp and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Company. The flowers were in my stash and are probably from Prima too!
I used Prisma pencils to shade after piecing the doll. I think these tags will be perfect to save and hang on a gift bag when the occasion arises.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Heartfelt Creations August Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the August Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. I made an A2 sized card this month using paper, stamps and dies from the Butterfly Medley collection. This is one of my favorite collections. The purples, oranges, greens, and blues are so beautiful for a late summer card. I used a card panel from the paper collection and adhered to a white cardstock base. I stamped my butterfly in Archival Black ink  on watercolor paper, and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I used Prima watercolors to color the image. When dry, I added some Stardust Stickles to the wings and adhered on the card.
The Hop starts 8am EST on Friday August 25th and closes Monday August 28th at 11.59pm EST.
The winner will be announced on the HC blog and on FB on Wednesday August 30th.  A random comment will be chosen to  receive a  $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations.

Sprinkling You With Joy...

Hello! Today I have a card using The Stamps Of Life stamp set and dies, donuts2stamp. I used the dies to make the donut and then sponged Antique Linen distress ink for the bottom, and Picked Raspberry distress ink for my icing. Stamped my chocolate sprinkles and sentiment in Walnut Stain distress ink.
This is a quick and simple birthday card to make. I plan on making them in every color! So fun!

Collect Beautiful Moments...

Exited to share my first Prima Julie Nutting doll. I created a tag from some cardboard. I paper pieced her skin tones using old papers from a book. The rest of the patterned papers are from Crate Paper's Bloom collection. The pink flower was made using dyed coffee filters. I added Prill beads to the center. Not sure what I will do with this ginormous tag, but it was so much fun to make!
