Look Who's Turning Two!

Waltzing Mouse is turning two, and to celebrate, they are having a Birthday Teaparty Challenge.  They even provided this really cute Tea Bag template to play along. I love my Waltzing Mouse stamps, and would love a chance to add more to my collection!

Heartfelt Bella Rose Layout

I'm so in love with the new collection from Heartfelt / Bella Rose.  It's just so elegant and I think this 12 x 12 layout really reflects that. I created the whole background paper using stamps from the collection and's so pretty.

You also know I had to make some handmade flowers...something I'm just loving more and more.  Be sure to check out Heartfelt Blog and see other examples of my fellow design team members using Bella Rose and other collections.

5 Minute Flower

Hi everybody...I know you normally see my HeartFelt post on Wednesday but check back on Friday to see that creation.  Today I'm sharing with you a simple but great card I did for ABC DT. 

I love this line of Graphic 45 paper...Le Cirque.  It' just yummy and rich and perfect to make stunning flowers.  I just punched out nine circles and folded each into thirds/ a pie shape.   Then glued them all  to a circle base... and topped it off with some embellishments and it was done.  Really it's the flower that makes the card.
Now it your turn to make one of these fun flowers or for that matter any project with flowers and enter it in ABC DT Challenge for this month.  You could win up to a $25 gift certificate just for having some fun.  So hurry so there's still time.

See you on Friday with a Heartfelt Layout.

Bella Rose Day 2

Well I promised you yesterday I would post my second project from Heartfelt Creations new release Bella Rose...and here it is........This project was made from several new stamps and dies from HC, but the main one is Bella Rose Vintage Background..and it's my favorite. 

I love the way you can just stamp the images and they are perfect or they can lend themselves so well to layering and building up...beautiful.

Remember you can get complete directions for this plaque on Heartfelt Blog and leave a comment on Heartfelt's Blog about the Bella Rose Release and you'll be entered in a drawing to win the WHOLE BELLA ROSE collection...valued at $149.99

See you tomorrow with a simple, fast but very pretty card.
