Semi Finalist for Heartfelt Creations!

I truly enjoy creating with all kinds of paper, inks, dies, stamps, ephemera, ribbon, etc!  It is a joy to announce that I've been selected as a semi-finalist for the Design Team for Heartfelt Creations.  I simply love playing with their beautiful papers, delightful stamps, and intricate dies.  I've been a fan since I visited their booth at the Portland Creating Keepsakes Convention in the Spring of 2011.

I have been an avid collector of many of their collections, and love the versatility of their products.  Please take a look at a few of the Heartfelt Creation projects I have created and blogged about over the last few years. 

These are samples of the projects I submitted for consideration.  Heartfelt Creations allows readers to vote on their favorites, so please follow the link, I would appreciate your vote!  Thank you for joining me on this journey!

Project One:  Enjoy Coffee Center Step Card.  My most recent addition to my Heartfelt Creations stash was the I Want It All purchase of the Coffee Talk collection.  I am a coffee lover and am truly pleased to work with this collection and its lovely colors.  My only request would be a sentiment stamp that says “Thanks a latte” be added at some point please!  My blog highlights another card I made recently with this set.  This is a sophisticated version of a card that can be sent to male or female friend.  One of my regular card recipients is the widower of my best friend who died of breast cancer just a year ago.  It is important to me that I am able to encourage him through snail mail on a regular basis.  He is the planned recipient for this card.

Project Two:  I Believe In You Scrapbook page.  This double page layout highlights the use of a few retired products from Heartfelt Creations.  Although they are no longer available, it does showcase that a background sentiment stamp like “My Guy Pre Cut Set” can be used in unique ways as embellishments for a scrapbook page.  The colors of the “All Geared Up” paper collection were perfect for the photos.  I particularly enjoy using the Cut Mat Create die collection to design my own version of pocket page scrapbooking.  This is a clean and simple design for scrapbooking that is particularly suited to a masculine style page.

Project Three:  Vintage Floret Fabric Flower Headband.  I recently experimented with creating Heartfelt Creations flowers in fabric and was very pleased with the results.  The headband project is an example of the type of tutorials I write so that readers can re-create the project without experiencing the pitfalls and frustrations of figuring out the new innovative technique.

Please stay tuned for the tutorials on each of these fun projects.  I also want to send out a big thank you to the Heartfelt Creations team!
