Angels, Angels Everywhere with Crafters Companion

I'm really having fun with Crafters Companion's Ultimate Tool.  It really is a tool that can do about, well ..... everything with!!!!  Need a pretty bow?...Ultimate Tool,  need to make a box?  Ultimate Tool,  need to create a one of a card three dimension card?  Ultimate Tool.  You'll find yourself leaving this tool out all the time to create with instead of just tucked on the shelf. 

I was able to create this wonderful shadow box card in no time.   I love the way it folds down and then pops up when taken out of the envelope.  AMAZING!!

If you don't have the Ultimate Tool be sure to either head over to HSN for a special edition glitter purple one, or pick up a standard one on the Crafters Companion website

Italiana Riviera Collection from Heartfelt Creations is here

It's time to slow down the daily pace, take a deep breath and embrace life with the new Heartfelt Creations Italiana Riviera Collection.  We invite you to stroll down the Italian coastline taking in the spectacular seaside views, open markets, and amazing architecture while allowing yourself to relax and get lost in an easy going way of life.  Feel the gentle breeze, breathe in the aromas of salty mist and mouthwatering eats as you pass by a harbor lined with delightful cafes and quaint little shops calling out to you to pause for a visit. Step through towering stone gates to meander through perfectly manicured vineyards boasting rows and rows of coiling vines filled with dense foliage and  plump clusters of exquisitely purple hued grapes.  Then as the sun sets, continue to take in the old world charm and beauty of the area as you relax in your villa, enjoying a glass of fine wine aged to perfection while jotting down all of the days wonderful adventures on an old fashioned postcard, pausing occasionally only to peer out the old stone window that reveals the most surreal view of lush gardens, stately mountains, beautiful flowers and that perfectly manicured vineyard.  At Heartfelt Creations we dismiss the misconceived notion that you are required to leave your craft room to experience the finer things in come along with us as we invite you to explore the charm and elegance of the Italiana Riviera Collection!

To see complete directions on how to create this card and other fun projects with the latest release, go to Heartfelt Creations Blog.  Happy Crafting.
