Heartfelt Creations November 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 November 29th and closes Friday December 2nd at 11:59pm EST.


Today I'm sharing my first loaded envelope.  I used the Snow Kissed paper collection.  I used a 6X9 white envelope, cut off a sliver on each side and added gussets to give me more room for all the goodies. I added 1 pocket on the front and 1 on the back.


There are 2 cards with envelopes in the back pocket.

 I created toppers for the gifts and created envelopes to hold cut outs from the paper and some die cuts.  





My favorite piece is this shaker ornament.  I stamped the snowman on shrink plastic, cut it out in a free form shape, and baked it.  I purchased a plastic ornament at the dollar store that came in 2 pieces.  The snowman fit perfectly.  I cut out the scene from the paper, added some beads, and glued the paper on the back.

Did you know there are only 8 more Mondays till Christmas?  Just sayin', LOL.

Recently I participated in a Christmas song PL swap.  This design paper was so perfect for Frosty the Snowman.  All the words were created in Photoshop.  I used Wink of Stella to create lots of snowy sparkle and the images that are die cut I colored with Prismacolor pencils.  If it's hard to see the detail, then just click on the picture to see a larger image.

 Do you know someone who likes to read?  These corner bookmarks are so adorable!  I stamped the images and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  

The snowflakes were embossed with clear embossing powder and then I used distress ink to color the sky.


For this one, I placed the die at an angle to create a pocket and added some paper to take notes.  I'll be using these as stocking stuffers.

Heartfelt Creations August 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 August 30 and closes Friday September 3rd at 11:59pm EST.


Today I am sharing a Christmas gatefold card using the Celebrate The Season design paper.  I used one of the card front panels for the center and then added the sentiment card with pop dots.  The gifts, skates, mittens and leaves were die cut from the design paper.  I added Stickles and Wink of Stella to add lots of glitter.  In my humble opinion, Christmas cards just have to have lots of sparkle!

I created a belly band with the Ornate Borders and Pockets die.

Today I used the Farmers Market paper collection to make my card.  I used one of the card fronts for the base.  'In the garden' panel is a cut out from the paper collection and I adhered it with foam tape.  The ticket and sentiment are also cut outs from the collection and are also on foam tape.  I then stamped and die cut the leaf clusters and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  A sweet little upside down bow adds the finishing touch.

You Are My Sunshine

There's another new sketch at From The Heart Sketch Challenge.

The twist this time is to make it sparkle.


The stamp I used is a free image at From The Heart Stamps.  There are 4 sentiments included.  I used some Stickles, Wink of Stella and rhinestones for some sparkle.

Thank You


There is a very sweet, simple sketch at 'From The Heart' sketch challenge this week.  The twist is to create a gratitude card. 

 I used one of my favorite images, Lil Birdie.  She has been colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The panel was matted and adhered with foam tape.  The sentiment was created in Photoshop Elements and I added some rhinestones for some sparkle.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
