Together with Heartfelt Creations

Good Morning! It’s Wednesday and time for some Heartfelt Creations projects from the Design Team. You’ll find all the team’s projects HERE.

First up is a gift bag/box. I found the tut in a mag and thought it looked like so much fun. I used some lovely Riddersholm Design papers and kept it real simple with only some stamping with the amazing Springtime Cardinal stamps. Clean and simple.

April 3

I love how the tag came out – do you see the soft stamped Cardinal?  The stamps used on this one are: Magnificent Cardinal Rose PreCut Set and Spring Birdies and Roses PreCut Set.

My second project is a card with the magnificent Cardinal Posy Wreath stamp in focus.

Together...

I kept this one clean too, the stamps are enough! I dry embossed a frame on the white cardstock panel and simply adhered the fussy cut out wreath on it with pop dots. I layered the cardinals on the Wreath with the coordinated Cardinal Family PreCut Set and the Cardinal Family Die.  Finally I stamped flowers from the Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set and layered the flowers on the wreath.

A lot of layers and a lot of pop dots! :) :) :) Soooo, I’m entering this into Donna Mundiger’s Dimensional challenge over at Yvonne Yam’s blog Do More With Less. (Go check Donna’s creations out HERE! They are amazing!!!)

Thanks for stopping by!

My boys

I made a layout a couple of weeks ago with a new fave photo of my boys. My mother in law liked it so I gave it to her. Needed to make another. :)

This is my DT project for Scrap-Perra this week. LOVE this Glitz Design line!!! I used last week’s sketch from Creative Scrappers.

And a quick card with my precious PTI products:

Be good…

Hi! Hope you are having a wonderful Easter!!!! We’ve had a lovely weekend with family and lots of good food. The weather has been out of this world, so we’ve spent most of it outside. ♥

Here is a monochromatic CAS card with new AMAZING stamps from The Rubber Café!!!

Be good

I’m also sharing a new (and an old) layout over at Scrap-Perra’s blog today – I’ll share it here tomorrow. And now, I’ll go pack my bag for a scary, scary project which involves a camera. If I survive, I’ll share it here when it’s done.

Take care and thanks for stopping by!

Miss you

I had a great weekend with friends attending Scrap-Perra’s 10 hour crop. Didn’t do much scrap wise… Actually I ended up with one (1!!!) card. Oh well, there were so many other things to do. Like shop. Or chat. Or… Thought I’d share my card which is based on the products in the goodie bag and new stamps and dies.

Miss You

Here is a detail shot on the stamp from the Daily Junque set from Pink Paislee. It’s gorgeous. :):):)

Miss you detalj

More info about the card, like products, can be found on Scrap-Perra’s blog. Here.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Heartfelt Creations card. Hope to see you then!

PTI + Case Study = fun night!

Hi! Second post for today. I don’t know when that happened last… Anyway, I received fun mail today – new stamps and dies from PTI. They cost me A LOT! (I wont get into details, but everything that could possibly go wrong with customs did!) It was totally worth it. Looooove this stuff. I needed to make a card right away. So I left the dishes…. And put my son in front of the tellie. Oh well! :) :) :)

What a lovely DAY!!!

Wohoo! This is the first day since Monday I woke up without a headache nor migraine.  Life is good. The past week has been a crappy one head wise, but a super exciting one scrap wise! It started out with the Guest spot over at Yvonne’s blog “Do More With Less”. She wrote some sweet words about me and we both launched a coloring challenge open to anybody!!! All you need to do is make a card with a hand colored image on it. Easy peasy!!!

Here is the card I did for Yvonne!

Happy Easter lift mars

My Tombow colored image is a super sweet vintage stamp from Prickley Pear called Girl with Basket. It’s teamed up with my favorite sentiment stamp this spring, the Happy Everything stamp. So cute! : ) : ) : ) Papers are lovely, lovely springy Riddersholm Design, the Bello Pastello line. Love this stuff!!!

I hope you will play with me over at Yvonne’s place. You find the challenge HERE!!!

My second news is a HUGE one!!! I found out this week that I was accepted as one of the Design Team members of Heartfelt Creations!!! WOHOOOO!!!! You have no idea just how excited I am about this. The team is amazing and the stamps out of this world!!! Here is one of the cards I did for the semi final round:

03 18_8597_redigerad-1

I’m using the stamp sets Moonlight Dahlia 1 and  Moonlight Dahlia 2 and also the aaaamazing corner die from the Decorative Butterfly-Border set. Papers from Riddersholm! Check out all the beautiful cards made by the Heartfelt Creation DT this week HERE.

Now I have quite a lot to catch up… I’ve tried manage work this week, (sort of) but I had to back down from all the scrappy and bloggy and forumish stuff. So now I’m off to check out what you all have been up to! Wish you all a happy Saturday!!!

Suitcase box and card

Hi! Here is my Scrap-Perra DT project for this week. (All product info etc can be found on Scrap-Perra's blog HERE, in Swedish). My co worker wanted me to make a card for one of her best friends who turns 60 this coming weekend. She gave me free hands except I was to use the recipient's favorite color – red. So red it is:

Väska

I’ve seen my former DT partner Cornelia make these suitcases and every time I’m really inspired to try it out myself. So now finally!

Väska öppen

Do you see the flower? It’s made after a tut my Stonehenge Sister Irene made. Check it out here – her flowers are AMAZING!

I made a card to fit the inside. The box ended up pretty small, but another DT partner, Dilorf, showed us a fun folding perfect for this occasion a couple of weeks back.

Väska kort öppet

Väska båda

Clean and simple

Hi! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I did. It was busy, had quite a lot of work to do. And some projects! : ) : ) : ) One of them is up on Scrap-Perra’s blog, I’ll share it here tomorrow.

In one of my work breaks, I whipped up a quick layout, CAS style. I’m really happy about it. I love the photo, taken with my iPhone and a little blurry. But with some editing it ended up ok.

love

Aren’t they sweet!?! : ) : ) : ). The design is a lift of this page. I loved the square design and CAS look.

Tomorrow I’ll be back with a card or two. Take care!
