Three Different Ways to Shape a Rose!

I don’t know about you my friend but I love to make the most out of my crafty stash! What better way to create three different looks out of one item? 

Infact…. Let’s go one more step and create two projects with the same decorative die and embellish them with those roses! 

Want to learn the steps to creating this one of a kind gift bag? You know me… I love making something out of crafty products that the item wasn’t designed to do! 

Follow the step by steps to create this gift bag and foam roses in the video tutorial HERE

Now for the other two roses…. Paper and Vellum! You can learn the simple steps in the video HERE along with how to create a quick and EZ easel card too. 

I got to share these projects live as part of the Valentines Virtual event over at Heartfelt Creations. What an amazing day everyone had celebrating Art from the Heart, crafters from all over the world together just having fun! And of course being live always makes for some interesting times, you never  know what might happen! 

Friend if you missed the event don’t worry, great news…  You can watch all the videos on replay HERE! 

Have lots of crafty fun and I’ll be back soon with some updates and more projects you can create too!

It’s been a while!

Oh my goodness how time flies…. It’s been so much longer than I thought since I last posted on here 🙈 I’m so sorry! I guess I need to bring you up to speed and then over the next few weeks share some of the things I’ve been doing and making in the last few years! I’ve never stopped crafting. 

This is a project I made shortly after the last one posted! Those diecuts around the edge… they are border dies and create a fabulous illusion of a large decorative die. 

As Marketing director for Heartfelt Creations I’ve had some amazing opportunities over the last several years to meet amazing crafters from all over the world! 😍 

Firsts are always special… my first visit out to the office was just after my last post I think! So here’s some pics! 

This was the first visit I got to go to Novi craft show. Ooh what a great treat to meet everyone and chat and craft! Each time I’ve been it only got better! 😍😍 So many happy memories. 

Seriously…. on that first visit I got to visit an amazing bakery called Rise’n Roll…. Well there have been many visits since over the last few years it’s my favourite bakery but these are pics the first visit ever with Emma Lou. Those donuts…. Holy Moly! They just melt in your mouth. 😋 Shh…. I’ve even had their pecan pie posted out to me here in the UK as a gift! It’s that good! 😍 While it’s a 20mins drive from the office it became a go to place to take the team for lunch! 😜

Happy happy memories. Haha I know everyone loves to see the sign and of course I had to have a pic too! 

So now that’s the first post in a long time… I’ll be posting again soon with some more pics of cards and things I’ve got up to in crafting! It’s so good to be back I can’t wait to craft with you again!

I am just loving the Noel Ornament Die from the O Holy Night Collection!
It is so versatile and you can make so many different types of Christmas cards with it!

This card is so quick & EZ to make, I made it in 30 mins! 
I was Inspired by a card Rajni made for this card.
You can see how it's made in this video on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook Page HERE.

Lush Lilac Mini Album

Ooh it's been a while......... I'm sorry I've been travelling....
Eeek I got to go to the Heartfelt Creations Office!!! 
Oh my if you get chance to go on a tour there you must! It's amazing! 

I have had great fun making this mini album with the Lush Lilac collection!
Can you believe I have never made a mini album until now! 
I don't why not they are so easy!

I used the flip fold cards to make pocket inserts with the layered cards.

All I need to do now is add some photos, I was thinking the little polaroid ones!

And of course I had to decorate the front with the Lilac! 
This is definatley one of my favourite collections! 

Have fun crafting!

The butterfly border die in the centre is just so versatile, it makes
a fabulous border along the edge of a card.... you know what I'm working on next lol!

I used the following to make my card:
