Flamingos and Hot Chicks


This adorable flamingo image is a digital stamp from 'from the heart stamps'.  I duplicated the image and then flipped it.  The sketch is this weeks 'from the heart' sketch challenge and the twist was to fussy cut the image so I did that and placed them on pop dots.  The sentiment is part of the collection.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Heartfelt Creations March Alumni Blog Hop

Hello friends! It's that time again when we are hosting the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop. As always, you will have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to shop at Heartfelt Creations. All you have to do is comment on each blog that is participating in the hop. Hop starts 8am EST on Tuesday March 29th and closes Friday April 1st at midnight.


 
 

This is a little booklet I created, using a 6"x9" envelope. I didn't use any dimensional embellishments since I wanted to be able to tuck it into my purse. I made it to practice doodling and zentangles. I'm still not happy with my writing so I printed the sentiments and then added the doodles. Practice, practice! I used the flap of the envelope to create the closure with a magnet.

Valentine PenPal Flip Book

Today I am sharing my first flip book.  I made this for Irene's challenge which you can find on her youtube channel here.


 I used a Tim Holtz alphabet die for the letters on the front.


 The valentine image is a tip-in which hides some more valentine images. The dress is made from a doily.


The mail tag has the answers to 5 questions which Irene asked us to answer.


This page has a goodie bag made with some gold foiled vellum paper. The tags flip open to reveal the sentiments.


This page has a pocket which holds my letter. The 'hello' and arrow were cut from gold card stock with the cricut.


The telephone and arrow are also cricut cuts.

This is my version of Lolly Palooza's flip book paper clip. You can find her tutorial here.

These are lots of fun to create and I am thinking I will create some for my bible journaling.

I would like to enter this in a few challenges

Artistic Inspirations:  #149 anything goes/valentine (Feb.14)
Crafting When We Can: #112  add hearts (Feb.21)
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends:  #27  anything goes (Feb.21)

In memory of a dear friend, Penny Odell

 
We were very saddened to hear of Penny's passing earlier this month.  She was part of the Heartfelt Creations design team with me and I was always so inspired by her beautiful work.  Even though we never met in person, her sweet, kind personality came through her on-line communication.  She was always quick to encourage and she will be greatly missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
