HC DECORATED CHIPBOARD ALBUM

Today I have a chipboard album that I created for Heartfelt Creations.  If you are ever lucky enough to visit CHA or one of the shows that Heartfelt Creations is at you may have seen my album on display.  Here is a pictures of it at the HC Booth:



The base of the album is a  Ruby Rock-It August Moon Chipboard Album.  So the pages came preprinted and then I decorated and embellished it with Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.  I tied some May Arts Pleated Ribbon onto the jump rings to create a pretty binding.  The complete detailed supplies and instructions are listed at the end of this blog post.  Here is a look at the album page by page:

HC CARDS & WALLHANGING

Good morning!  It's Wednesday and time for me to show you some more projects I created for Heartfelt Creations.  First, I need to tell you that unfortunately this will be my last official post as a HC Design Team member my term ends on April 30th.  The new Design Team will be announced on the HC Blog next Wednesday, May 1st.  I just want to say that I have enjoyed every minute of being on the HC Design Team for the last 1 1/2 years.  It has been an amazing journey!
 
I only started stamping and coloring with Copics 2 1/2 years ago when a small scrapbook store, More Memories, opened in my home town.  I started taking some card and coloring classes at the store and I never knew that would lead me to starting a blog, being on a Design Team, having my work published sixteen times and my work on display at CHA and other industry trade shows.  I have met so many amazing people in real life and in blogland.  It has turned out to truly be a blessing in my life and just what I needed, when I needed it.  God is truly amazing!
 
 
I am a stay-at-home wife and mother and my girls are teenagers now.  They do not require as much day to day care as when they were little, but I still want to be at home and be available for their after school talks and to help with their activities. I also need to help take care of my parents, who have a lot of health problems and I serve on the funeral dinner committee at church, which I have done for eight years.  Designing is a hobby/job that I can do where I am still at home and  I can work around my family obligations. It also helps support my craft habit (which we all know can be expensive)! My husband is a corporate pilot and travels and so I also want to be home when he is home and I need a hobby to fill my time when he is gone.  Designing cards and coloring with Copics is my outlet, it is something I do for me, but yet I can still fulfill my responsibilities as a wife, mother, daughter, friend and sister-in-Christ like I want and need to.
 
 
I want to thank Emma Lou and Linda for giving me the opportunity to be on the HC Design Team.  It has been a great experience and I truly love all of the HC products.  It has been very easy to design for HC because their stamps, dies and papers are so beautiful and fit my style perfectly.  I am going to participate in the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hops on the last Tuesday of the Month.  I also am going to make card samples for the stamping and scrapbooking store, More Memories and I am going to start teaching card classes there as well.  I will be sharing the cards I create for the store and the classes here on my blog.
 
 
Sorry for such a long, wordy post today.  Hopefully, I didn't get too sentimental.  Now on to the cards and wall hanging I made this week for Heartfelt Creations.  On  the Lighthouse Step Card I made this week, again I used seashells that I found on Lido Beach from our family vacation to Sarasota, Florida a few weeks ago.

Please make sure and check out the other great projects the HC Design Team made this week on the HC Blog.  I will be back tomorrow with a chipboard album that I made for Heartfelt Creations that is shown on their blog today.  Have a good day!

REMEMBER LIFE IS GOOD

Good morning!  Today I woke up and reminded myself "Life is Good".  Sometimes we need to stop and remind ourselves of this.  These last few days I have been down in the dumps.  I have been sick with a cold, my computer died and a few other things have not went the way I had hoped.  So this weekend I was having a pity party for myself.  Well today when I woke up the sun was shining and the grass is greening up, which means hopefully here in Northern Indiana it will soon be warm enough for me to get out in my flower beds.  I always feel better when I can dig in the dirt.  I really do have a lot to be thankful for and "Life is Good". 
 
I have a card to share with you today as a reminder.  The sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations HCPC 3302  - Lilac/Posy Bouquet PreCut Set and the paper and embellishments are from Prima.

 
 
Have a good day and remember "Life is Good!"

HC DISTRESSED VINTAGE LAYOUT - APRIL 3, 2013

Today I have another 12" x 12" vintage layout to share with you.  I just love this picture of this beautiful woman that I found at the antique mall! It goes perfect with  Heartfelt Creations Countryside Evening Paper Collection.  To make the page look even more vintage I heavily distressted the edges and inked them with Tim Holtz Old Paper Distress Ink, making sure to fold back the edges to reveal the mauve paper from Heartfelt Creations Frosty Blanket Paper Collection.  That is definately one thing I love about all the HC paper.  It all coordinates and compliments each other so well that you will find it so easy to mix and match collections.

DISTRESSED VINTAGE LAYOUT
