Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother's Day to all those who are celebrating it today!
I know in the USA it's not for a while yet!

I thought I would share the card I made for my Aunt today.
She should have got it by this post goes live! lol!
I have been having so much fun making vellum flowers recently
with the Wildwood Cottage collection from Heartfelt Creations!
This card goes perfect with a project I have made for my next Facebook Live,
Lol I might have to make another one for that!

We are spending the day as a family today, a yummy
Lunch and my favourite raspberry crumble for dessert!
It reminds me of my Grandma, she used to make me a special
one when I was a little girl with fresh rasps from the garden!

Have a wonderful day and of course happy crafting!

Easter Basket Tutorial


Oh I had so much fun making this basket! 
It really is so quick and easy to make.
5-10mins for the basket and then just decorate!

My tutorial is on the Heartfelt Creations blog HERE
These would make great wedding favors, or gift baskets
for any occasion! Change the size too make them as
big or small as you want!

TIP: If you are changing the size make sure it's divisible easily by 3!

Have fun making lots of these, I have a few more I have been making
they might make an appearance on my net Facebook Live! 

Have fun and make sure you go check out the tutorial!

Have a beautiful day


It's Heartfelt Wednesday and I have a card to share 

I made this card with it being for a friend just to say "Hi" but
it could be used for so many occasions..... weddings, birthdays and
christenings come to mind as well as Easter!

Gosh I can't believe we are in March....... where has the time gone?
Wishing you all a beautiful day and lots of crafty fun!

My card was made to go with the tote bag and gift below I made too.
Perfect for Mother's Day or any occasion!

 

You can see a tutorial for the tote bag HERE. And.....
the memo holder you can see how I made on a video HERE

To make the card I used the following:
HCST1-401 Flower Shaping Kit
HCDP1-275 Flowering Dogwood Paper Pad
HCD1-7131 Flowering Dogwood and Doves die
HCD1-7129 Flowering Dogwood Die
HCPC-3775 Flowering Dogwood and Doves Cling Stamp Set

Other Products Used : Spellbinders Decorative Labels 54 and Labels 54, gems, 3D foam pads,
white card

See this video HERE to shape the Flowering Dogwood flowers.

Fold a piece of white card and using the large Labels 54 die cut a card blank. Using the same die 
cut a single layer of paper from the paper pad ink the edge and adhere to the front of the card. Die cut
a piece of white card with the Decorative Labels 54 die and using 3D foam pads adhere to the
card front. Die cut from the paper pad the rectangle die and stamp the sentiment on. 
Ink the edges and adhere with 3D foam pads to the card. Using the Brown ink stamp the dove and colour with the coral and Crimson Copper Ink. Glitter the dove and adhere to the card. Stamp, cut, shape and colour the flowers and leaves. Adhere prills to the stamens and adhere to the flower centres. Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card and your project is complete.

Altered Photo Frames


I have been having lots of fun altering plastic photo frames!
So many fun things you can do with this and they make perfect gifts for Mother's Day! 
I was so thrilled to be able to bring these to you LIVE on Heartfelt Creations Facebook page!
Make sure you keep a look out as I will be bringing more fun tutorials LIVE!

First I decorated this double frame using the Raindrops on Roses paper pad and 
Sunkissed Fleurs from Heartfelt Creations. The front has a pocket for extra pics 
and here on the back you can see a space to write a to and from style
message on the right panel. Then on the left I made another pocket
and it is full of journaling panels to write little messages on.


You know I just LOVE the Birds and Blooms collection so I had
to use it and found a Spring pic for this frame of me and my hubby.
Lol it's rare I have a picture taken and I have used two of me here on my post!
So don't like having my picture taken!!!!!
    

Next I made some Memo holders, this first one is a 6" x 4" size frame and I 
decorated it with the Flowering Dogwood collection.
This is what I made and you can rewatch the live video HERE if you
wanted to see how to make one too! 

  

Then I made another larger 7" x 5" memo holder with the Classic Sunflower collection
this time decorating the back too where you can add a message too. 

    

Last but not least I had to use the roses I made and wore at CHA this year 
on a frame of Emma Lou and myself! 


I wanted to make a desk calendar too but I just ran out of time.....
but you could easily add a calendar to the front and decorate!

Have fun crafting!

Tooth Fairy box tutorial


Today it's National Tooth Fairy day!
Remember the excitement when you lost a tooth at the anticipation 
of the Tooth Fairy coming to visit that night?
I used to just slip my tooth wrapped in tissue under my pillow but
I would have loved a pretty box!
All you need is a small organza bag to put in it inside this box for the tooth!

The tutorial so you can make lots of these boxes too
is up on the Heartfelt Creations website HERE 



Lol I only had a $10 note I sure don't give my kiddo's that much for a tooth! 


I added flowers to my box inner but if you wanted to make it as
a general gift box for something you can omit this! 


Have fun, these would make great craft fair sellers!
Happy Crafting.

Thank you so much


Thought I would share these cards with you today!
I am in a purple mood lol!

These are very quick and easy to make using the card fronts
from the Raindrops on Roses paper pad from Heartfelt Creations.
Just glitter the papers and stamp, cut and colour the flowers and leaves!
If you have a stash of flowers already made it makes it even easier! 

Right sorry another quick post, it's still half term and today we are heading out
let's hope it doesn't rain, we might get very wet! lol!

Happy crafting!
