Heartfelt Creations Alumni DT Blog Hop June

Welcome, to the June Edition of the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog hop! The hop runs now through Friday night - at midnight.  And one lucky commenter, chosen from one of the stops on the blog hop, will win a $25 gift certificate to HC.  How great is that?  You get to hop around and see some wonderful projects, plus have the chance to win some goodies of your own!  The winner will be announced on Saturday, July 2nd, and will have 72 hours to claim their prize.


I'm not an expert with watercolors, but they are so fun to play with - I decided to try them using the large Fuchsia Bouquet stamp. I paired it up with some paper from the Enchanted Mum collection to pull in the purples that I used for the flowers. Easy- peasy!

World's Best Dad


This weekend is Father's Day, here in the States - so I thought it was the perfect time to share this cool card for the occasion, using Sara Davies' new signature collection, Just for Men.  After I die cut the gears, I used embossing powder to create the look of rusty metal.  (It's an easy thing to do to add a ton of texture!)

Love is in the Air


June is just around the corner, which means you may have a wedding or anniversary to celebrate! If so, then check out the Sara Signature Collection - Love and Romance. It's a wonderful collection to create love filled projects.  I used gold and vellum to create a card that would be perfect for an elegant anniversary.  Changing the colorway really can set the mood for a card.

Under the Sea Album with Heartfelt Creations

Today, I am happy to share with you my favorite Heartfelt Creations project ever, with my favorite collection from them of all time!  I finally sat down and created one of their flip fold albums, and I truly poured my heart into this one. This is the brand new Under the Sea collection and it is stunning!
Not only do you have all of the sea creatures, but there is also this fabulous Water Hibiscus flower!
I made a shaker element for the front of the album (if you look you will see the shimmery sequins).
This album has ton of interactive pages, but I just thought I would share  a few with you.
 

Thanks for stopping by!
