All Geared Up and Really Reasonable Ribbon


I'm loving working with the latest collection from Heartfelt Creations...All Geared Up.  It's so unique and fun.  I can' think of a more masculine card than a bouquet of nuts and bolts, LOL.  Of course I had to add some gear flowers for a bit of feminine touch. 


We paired with Really Reasonable Ribbon last week for a perfect  mix and I thought the twine would blend beautifully.  Remember to hop over to Heartfelt Creations main blog and see directions and various other projects from the rest of the design team

Jewelry Made Easy with Graphic 45


 
I love the era of the big bands, flapper dresses and the bold style of art deco.  So when I saw the Couture Collection I knew I had to turn it into some type of wearable art.  I created this elegant and fun pin that just screams to be worn on the lapel of a jacket and I’ll show you how to make your own pin…using Couture Collection or any Graphic 45 paper of your choice.  In fact the pins are really simple and fun you could make several to hand out for gifts.

Be sure to check out my how to tutorial below and you'll be able to make your own pin(s) in no time!!!!

Create your own background

 
 I love this tag...I created the whole background using stencils, ink and embossing powders.  I think it's just stunning.  The stencil was from Hampton Art collection that come with stamps and stencil in a package...super cool. 
 
I hope you have a great weekend and get lots of craftiness done and I'll see you Monday.

A Place Called Home with Heartfelt Creations


Happy October....today is the final day of Heartfelt Creations Classic Sunflower Collection and I'm sorry to see this month's feature go.  I've loved every project with the Classic Sunflower because they are all simply beautiful.  Today's card is one that really highlights the paper collection.  I was able to create this lovely card with fussy cutting and stamping a sentiment.  It just goes to show you how versatile the collection is and though I would want it all you can create the look without some of the flower stamps and dies.

Big Score with Hampton Art and G45

Today's card features Graphic 45 and Hampton Art with a BIG SCORE Theme.  The main image was stamped and colored in.  The paper collection is Good Ol' Sport from Graphic 45 along with the coordinating stamp sets from Hampton Art.  It's a BIG SCORE card for sure.

It's What You See with Hampton Art


Happy Friday...Don't you just love the weekends?  Today's card is one I created for Hampton Art.  It's a Graphic 45 stamp set featured in the middle of handmade designer paper using a stencil.  It's a cute simple card, but I just love the glasses...so cool.

Heartfelt Creations and Creative Embellishments Together


I'm so in love with the Classic Sunflower Collection from Heartfelt Creations . I'm also in love with this handsome man, so I figured the two would be good.  Though I'm sure he would never think his face would be adorned on a layout with so many flowers, I think it perfect, LOL.  Sunflowers to me remind me of comfort and home so I think it OK to mix the two. 

This week we are also joining forces with Creative Embellishments.  Their intricate chipboard is a perfect compliment to Heartfelt.....check out more details below.





Be sure to hop over to Heartfelt Creations Blog today and see tons of projects featuring Heartfelt Creations and Creative Embellishments...beautiful, just beautiful.

Pocket Page Layout with Graphic 45's Typography

 
Today over on the Graphic 45 Blog my Project Life Layout is featured.
 
 I had never created a pocket scrapbook style layout and I really was challenged by it at first, not sure why? I actually adore the way it turned out when all was said and done and not sure why I made it so scary.  The colors of the Typography paper with the black and white photos just really make it POP.  
 
The theme of my layout is of my best friend Cindy at Crossfit  workout.  She is the most beautiful person I know inside and out so I had to be sure the layout did her justice.  I think I pulled it off, LOL with the help of Graphic 45.   
 
In the middle of the layout is a mini book that holds more pictures.  I have a great Snapguide tutorial to show you how to make your own little mini book for your layouts or journals.
