Tropical Paradise

It's Heartfelt Wednesday and here is my card this week using 
the Tropical Paradise collection.

I know we have had Mother's Day here in the UK already but
over in the USA it's May 14th!

Making this card was such fun, all the bright colours really cheered me up,
and yes I got glitter everywhere! lol

Here are some EZ tips for making the Plumeria flowers

EZ steps to make gorgeous Tropical Plumeria flowers!

1. Stamp the Tropical Plumeria flowers using the ColorBox Berrylicious ink onto white card. 
Using the Precision Daubers colour the outer edge of the flower petals.

2. Turn the flowers over and ink the outer edge of the underside of the petals.

3. Using Memento Cantaloupe ink colour the rest of the petal. 
From the back shape the area you have just inked with a circular motion.

4. Using the curling tip from the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit curl the outer of the petal over.

5. Snip into both of the petals for the flower to allow easy shaping.

6. Using hot glue adhere the petals over each over like a pin wheel effect.

7. Bring the petals together to form the flower and adhere in place with hot glue. 
Shape the petals using your fingers to create the flower.

Use your flowers to create gorgeous projects! Add prills into the centres 
and glitter the edges of the petals too for different effects! Just have lots of crafty fun!

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.

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.

Thought I'd share a birthday card I made for a very special lady recently!
It made me smile I used her own designs for her card!
The lovely Linda Bontrager had a birthday while we were at CHA
so I couldn't not go without a card for her!

I have been so quiet recently and I'm sorry...... 
BUT things are changing and I have some exciting changes 
in my crafty work that mean I will be around much more!
Tutorials, Live Facebook crafty sessions, crafty tips......

Birthday roses

I thought I would share the card I made for my Aunt's birthday!
She finally has it in her hands no so it's safe to share lol!

I just LOVE the Raindrops on Roses paper pad from Heartfelt Creations,
it's my favourite well I think it is there are a few I'd say that about lol!
I used a card front from the paper pad for my card and 
decorated it with the Classic Rose also from Heartfelt Creations.

I had great fun with my roses I went for the distressed look.
It's really easy! Stamp, colour and cut your flowers and then
spray with water. Scrunch and twist them and leave to dry!
When they are dry gently unfold the petals and
layer them up to form your flowers!

Of course I HAD to add glitter to the roses too.

Happy crafting!
