One Last Day with Sunrise Lily and Heartfelt Creations

I've loved this collection from Heartfelt Creations and I'm sorry to say this is the last day I'll be featuring...but don't worry there is an amazing collection that you will love that will be premiering next week.  Tease Tease Tease. 

I created this card using one of the Flip Fold Inserts and I just think it turned out stunning.  Using the flip folds will really help you make complicated looking cards...but do them easy.  Want to know how easy?  Head over to Heartfelt Creations blog and take a peek of the directions of this card for yourself.

Now I have to tell you I played with Tim Holt'z distress crayons for these flowers and I think I have a new love....OMWord...they are beautiful in color and fun to work with.  If you haven't already picked up some to play with I encourage you to do so. 

I'll see you next week with that whimsy release I teased you about in the beginning and until then...Happy Crafting.

Discover Layout with Graphic 45


Sigh.  Sometimes I wish I could turn back time even though I adore my son being 10 years old now and all the questions and funny things he'll say.  Still there is something so sweet about those toddler years and the time of discovery for a little peep.  I  created this layout with some pictures I had of my boy from that time people and I used the latest collection from Graphic 45 " Voyage Beneath the Sea.  Who wouldn't love the colors in this color much less the theme.. it's just so trendy right now. 

Be sure to also check out my step by step tutorial on creating this layout.  I'll give you some simple little tricks that will help you create more detailed and interesting layouts. 


Now head over to Graphic 45's blog and catch more inspiration for National Scrapbooking Month, they are sure to not disappoint.
