Laugh Kaisercraft Layout

With the holidays coming up next week the month is almost over...YIKES!!!! Where did 2013 go?  I can't think of a better way to show out the year than by winning KaiserCrafts monthly sketch challenge....

This is my take on one of our sketches this month for KasierCraft.  Sketches can really jump start your creative mojo and a great way top win some extra product.  Be sure to hop on over to KaiserCraft's Blog and see all the sketches so far this month and join in our fun...and best of luck. 

I'll be taking a bit of time off next week, so you may only see one post for Heartfelt Creations and that's it.  I hope you are all blessed this Christmas and I'll see you next week and a lot more in 2014.

A Prayer for the Day

I really love this sentiment from the new Floral Key Collection from Heartfelt Creations so of course I had to feature it on a card.  Really you only need one flower on a card to make it pop and that's just what I did on this one 

 I added a little surprise on the inside and a place where you could write your personal message.  All in all this card came together beautifully..  It's always simple to create such elegance with Heartfelt.  Want to know how I made this?  See all the products and step by step directions below.

Directions for Project:

Cut panel from designer card stock.  Stamp with brown distress ink sentiment and heat set with clear embossing powder.  Mount on solid base and sand the edges for a distressed look.  Stamp 7 flowers in varying sizes and cut out with matching die.  Color your petals with ink and manipulate petals with McGill Tools.  Stack your petals and glue together to for a large blossom.  Paint the tips of your flower with glitter paint and finish off your flower with a sparkly bauble.  Stamp two leaves on cream color card stock, cut out with matching die and curl your leaves with McGill Tools.  Ink lightly your edges of the leaves and rub inward leaving some of the cream showing.  Attach leaves and flowers to card as shown.  For the inside of the card cut cream color card stock and stamp image in the lower right hand corner of the card with the image slightly off the card.  Color with markers of your choice.  Glue to the interior for a finished project.

30 Days of Xyron Christmas Tag and Tutorial

Tags are such a popular, fun and easy thing to make at the holidays.  This is one that is great because you can use up some scraps you might have left over from other Christmas projects.  I have a really simple tutorial today for you that will show you how to make this adorable tag in no time.

First step is to cut strips making each one a bit longer that the last.  Take each strip and cigar roll it.  I use the end of one of my files for a base, but you could use any tool you have on hand. 

Once you have your rolls completed.  Use Xyron's new high tack tape to adhere your rolls to the base tag.   I like to place the tape over the end of the roll.  This helps to keep the rolls tight and glue them down. 

Then it's just decoration your tag/card with a few finishing touches and it's ready to go on a package. 

Here's a complete list of all the goodies I used to create this card
