opportunity to make it! lol! I imagined a little pooch in it!!! 
Of course I had to make a card to go with it which I will share next week!


Here is the back..... I created a little pocket with the border die!

HCPC-3760 Paw-fect Pooches Cling Stamp
HCD1-7116 Paw-fect Pooches Die

159723 Art Institute Dries Clear glue

Other Products Used : Tool Edger, Spellbinders Grand and Large Circles, Glitter glue,
White and brown pen, Scattered Straw and Peeled Paint Distress inks, 3D foam pads.

Cut two pieces of contrasting paper together at the same time using the largest of the
Spellbinders Grand Circle dies and adhere them together. Repeat this step so you have two
circles with your chosen papers on the outer. Cut the base off the circles so that they
are 5 1/2" tall at the tallest point. Draw a faux stitching line around the outer edges
in brown ink. Glitter the paws with glitter glue. Using two dies together one from the 
Grand Ovals and one from the large circle dies cut two pieces of brown paper from the pad 
together to form the handle and adhere them together, drawing faux stitching in white pen 
along the outer edge. Repeat this again for a second handle. Adhere to the outer of each 
of the sides of the bag.

To make the box in the centre cut a piece of paper from the pad that co-ordinates with the 
inside of the bag 11 3/4" x 8 3/4". Score 3" on all sides and then cut each corner piece
to form a tab. Fold and adhere together to form a box. Adhere the two sides of the bag to
the box.

For the front of the bag cut three pieces of different papers from the paper pad. 
2 pieces at 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and one at 3 3/4" x 4 1/2". Distress all the edges with the 
edger tool and glitter. Cut the centre of one of the card panels and distress the edges
and glitter the edges and the image. Using 3D foam pads layer the make and three pieces
of paper and adhere to the bag. Stamp, colour, cut and shape the flowers and leaves.
Add prills the the flower centres and glitter the petals. Adhere to the card with a tag
sentiment cut from the paper pad. Stamp, cut and colour the bone and stamp the sentiment
in the middle. Adhere to the bag and glitter.

For the back of the bag create a pocket by cutting the picket fence border die in
the dark brown paper from the pad. Cut a piece of paper 2 1/2" x 8 " and adhere
the picket fence die cut to the paper. Put glue on the edges of the bag where the pocket
will be and place the paper over the side of the bag. Trim the excess away and draw the 
faux stiching. Cut a tag and sentiment from the paper pad and adhere with flowers to 
the bag handle. Adhere flowers and leaves to the pocket and the bag is complete.
Just add a gift and a note in the pocket!

Happy crafting everyone!

Hats off!


For my card this week for Heartfelt Creations I was inspired
by London Fashion week! 

I just love hats, how I wish they would become popular again! 
Some of the vintage hats from the 1920's are amazing! 

Oh the colours of the Classic Rose Collection......
I had a hard time deciding what colour to make this! 
The papers are all so pretty! 
I am always drawn to purples they remind me of my Grandma,
She would have loved this! Infact she wold have had
me decorating a real hat for her with these!!!! Bess her.


Have you stopped by the Heartfelt Blog? 
Oh my there are some stunning projects!

I enlarged the template to create a larger hat by printing it at a larger scale. 
Draw around the template on paper from the paper pad and adhere to the inner of the card.
Repeat for the front of the card. I used a piece where the base of the hat looked different
to the top. Adhere to the card front and ink the inner and front edges of the hat. Cut a strip
of the darker paper from the pad 1" x 4 1/4" and adhere to the card as the hat band with 3D foam.
Cut a strip of paper 7/16" x 4/1/4" and adhere to the top of the darker strip. Glitter the patterns

241159 Dove Blender kit

Other Products Used : White card, Dotty Embossing folder, Acetate, Snowflake Paste,
Peeled Paint Distress ink, glitter glue, Promarkers (Ivory, Tan, Cinamon) Spectrum Noir
Markers (IG3, OR1 and True Black), 3D Foam pads, 3D glue. 
Spellbinders Lacey Oval and Oval dies.

Fold a piece of acetate in half. (I used an A4 size with white dots on) Tear several
pieces of white card and emboss with a dotty embossing folder. Arrange the card to
look like snowy hills and adhere to the card with glue and 3D foam pads. I did this on all 
sides to cover the glue marks as you can see them through the acetate. Stamp and die cut the 
trees and snowmen. Use the snowflake paste on the trees and sprinkle glitter over it. 
Using glitter glue, glitter the snowmen. Colour the snowmen with the Dover blender pen and 
the Teal Zeal ink. Colour the boots of the snowman with marker pens. 
(I used Promarkers - Ivory, Tan and Cinamon) Colour the nose with Spectrum Noir OR1 and the buttons with True Black. Shade the snowman with a grey I used IG3. Stamp, die cut and glitter the snowflakes. Die cut the lacey ovals die and colour with Teal Zeal ink. Die cut the oval die and adhere to the lacey oval die cut. Adhere to the inner of the card. Adhere the trees, snowmen and snowflakes to the card and your project is complete.

Happy 30th Birthday to Emma Lou!




It's Emma Lou's birthday and we have a surprise and some fun!!!! 
The Heartfelt Creations design team wanted to celebrate Emma Lou's 30th Birthday today!
So we planned a surprise for her!

Above is the card I made using the Birds and Blooms collection!

The design team made her cards and sent them off to her mum Linda all in secret!
Ellen (Emma Lou's sister) had to make sure none were discovered in the office
as parcels arrived. I am sure it must have been quite a challenge! Lol!

In honour of Emma Lou's birthday the design team also wanted to hold a blog hop so you can
all see the fabulous cards we made for her!! 

I also made a gift bag to match the card! Now what could I have filled it with?
Lol! Well it had to be pink didn't it! Lol That's all I can say!!!!



Emma Lou's wonderful husband Richard wanted 
you all to have the chance to win a $25 Heartfelt Creations gift voucher on the hop!
