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

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.

Heartfelt Creations Oct. 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 Oct.27th and closes Friday Oct. 30th at midnight. 


We are planning a trip and so I created a fauxdori to record all the fun we are expecting to have.  I used Kraft Tex as the base.  This is an awesome product for this type of project.  I used Heat n Bond to adhere the paper to the Kraft Tex.  I cut a hair band in half for the closure and then stamped the bicycle on some shrink plastic to create the charm.



The inside of the cover has a pocket.  I used plastic from some die packaging to make the dashboard which you can't really see since I don't have anything on it yet.


A few of the notebooks I created.  Some are blank pages and some are graph paper for practicing my lettering and doodling.


A folder made with envelopes to hold all our receipts.


Some faux washi tape made with masking tape.


Some sticky notes.


A zipper pocket made from a quart size baggie; this is the other half of the dashboard. 

This is the second fauxdori I've made; I'm surprised at how much I enjoy using these.  I hope this inspires you to make one of your own, they're very easy to make.

I am really enjoying making pocket letters.  This one is made with the new Farmers Market collection. 


On several of the cards I printed sentiments directly on the designer paper.


I love making these tiny 1" shaker charms.


For this card, I designed a 2.5 x 3.5 template in Photoshop Elements, positioned the young lady where I wanted her and then placed the words around her.  I then printed her out and paper pieced with the design paper.


I stamped and die cut the raspberries and bottle and added them to the card.

Is everyone staying dry and warm?  In my little corner of the world it just won't stop raining and is chilly.  I tried wearing my comfy, warm slippers but Sadie (7 mo. old puppy) thinks they're something to play with and keeps pulling them off my feet, LOL.

As you can see, I let this beautiful DP carry my card.  The only stamping I did was the vertical sentiment, butterflies (sorry, they're discontinued) and the flower.  The trim on the side was created with Spellbinders Classic Decorative Inserts Three and Classic Edges 2.
