HEARTFELT CREATIONS - MARCH 27, 2013

I hope everyone is having a good week!  I am so ready for Spring so this week I made a butterfly door hanger for my project for Heartfelt Creations.  I just bought a plain light colored wood door hanger at Wal-Mart and painted it with Viva Decor Walnut Brown Stamp Paint.  This was the first time I had used this product and I loved it.  It dries really quick to a beautiful metallic sparkle.  I embossed the "Life is Good" sentiment with Wow Embossing Glitter and I stamped the Heartfelt Creations butterfly and flower images on Cryogen White Paper, colored them with Copics and then detail cut them out and adhered them with Dries Clear Glue.  Really the picture here does not do this project justice!
 
LIFE IS GOOD DOOR HANGER


This isn't a very good quality picture, but this is how it looks hanging on the door.  Definitely adds a Spring look to the house!

HEARTFELT CREATIONS - March 20, 2013

Today I have a sweet card that I made for Heartfelt Creations that would be great to send to a special couple for their Anniversary.  When I saw this stamp of the swans in the HCPC 3523 - Feathered Friends PreCut Set , I thought it would look perfect in the heart shaped die cut from Heartfelt Creations HCD 728 - Timeless Amour Die.  I finished the card by adding May Arts Ribbon and Twinkle Goosebumps from Queen & Co. for embellishments!

HEARTFELT CREATIONS - MARCH 6, 2013

We are currently having a snow storm and it sure looks like Spring is a long way away.  Hopefully the layout I have to show you today with the bright colors, butterflies and bees will help remind us that Spring really is just around the corner.
 
A few weeks ago my daughter, Malinda, and I went shopping at local antique stores and found this darling pictures of a 5 year old little boy taken in 1915.  What a perfect picture to make a vintage scrapbook layout with that included butterflies and bees!
 
This layout showcases Heartfelt Creations Sunny Day Paper Collection perfectly!



For more great projects please visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog and also check out each HC Design Team's members blogs.  Hopefully soon we will really start seeing signs of Spring!
