Art Foam Paper flowers.

I've been having fun making flowers with the
Art Foam Paper for the very first time! Lol yes I know.....
It's been availble for ages! lol!

I made these with the Sweet Peony flowers.... oh they work a treat!

I watched Emma Lou live on Facebook making these and I just had to have a go!
I used everything the same as it was my first time making these.
You can watch how EZ they are to make with Emma Lou HERE.

Easter Basket

I had so much fun making this Easter basket!
You can see how I made it HERE on Heartfelt Creations Facebook page.
It doesn't have to be just used for Easter, it would make a lovely 
basket for a wedding, Mother's Day or any gift! 

The flowers I used are the Sweet Peonies, they really are so versatile
and easy to create different flowers with!

These are the exact same flowers but one picture as taken before
addding glitter and the other after addding glitter! They look so different! 


To make the basket I did the following:

1. Die cut 6 x Gift of Love Box sides and trim the top two sections away,
along with the tab on the now top section.

2. Use the floral die piece and cut in the centre of the square section of the 
6 x die cut sides and adhere together.

3. Ahere the base flaps and draw around the basket base on a piece of card
and cut out. Adhere to the bottom of the basket.

4. Cut a strip of card 2" x 11" long and use the Border Essentials Die
to create the handle. Cut two strips 3/4" x 11" of paper from the paper pad
and adhere to the handle, one on the top one underneath. 
Adhere the handle to the basket.

5. Cut 6 x die cuts to go on the flaps of the basket and glitter. 
Adhere to the basket with 3D foam pads.

6. Cut 6 x 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares of paper to match the handle and again using clear cardstock.

7. Adhere the clear card to each side of the basket and then again with the paper.

8. Use tissue paper and craft straw to fill the basket and then add you Easter Eggs!

Have fun making one too.
Happy crafting.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all who are celebrating today!
Here in the UK today is Mothering Sunday, I know 
my friends in the USA celebrate Mother's Day in May!
I wonder why the dates are different Father's Day is the same lol!

So.... here is the card I made my Aunt for Mother's Day.
She is more like a Mum to me than anything else and the girls all call her Grandma.
Such a special relationship we have.

I'm hoping by now she has arrived with me for lunch (I'm scheduling this post lol!)
and that she has already seen her card! One year she saw it online
before I managed to give it to her...... oops!

For the card I used the Lush Lilac collection and those cute little
birdies are from the Singing in the Rain collection.

Have a fabulous day everyone and happy crafting!

Have a Beautiful Day

I was looking through my dies and I found the Decorative Oval die
and just had to use it with my spares from the Lush Lilac collection.
This card really has a spring feel about it which is sort of funny 
as I made it while it was snowing lol! 

I made the oval aperture by layering the papers together for the front and 
die cutting the oval from the Eyelet Oval Die in the centre. 
Then I placed the papers on the front of the card and drew with a sharp pencil inside the oval.
All you need to do now is place the oval die over where you have drawn and diecut!
Now adhere the papers in place and all your oval cuts line up!

Have lots of crafty fun my friends!

To make the card I used:

Deck the Halls

I know it's too early for a Christmas card lol!
It's been a snowy day here and I just couldn't resist getting 
out my Christmas stash of flowers and embelishments!
It's not often I get to make a Christmas card in the cold and it;s snowing!

But first I had to make a snowman lol! 
While the kids are at school the parents will play!!!!! 
We made it so it was looking into the conservatory when the kids
did come home, they both laughed as he was lospided by then and melting!

Best Wishes

I have been having fun with vellum and the Lush Lilac collection!
If you missed me live on Facebook making this card then make sure you click HERE.

I am so in love with the umbrella in vellum, it look like a pretty parasol!
Ah.... summer days walking in Paris with a lacy parasol!

Apetures are so easy to make using you dies, I show you how in my video.
Adding a lacy boder around the aperture really makes it pop!

I mixed up my vellum flowers with my paper flowers for an extra pizazz!

And those cute birds are from the Singing in the Rain collection!
They are so cute! 

I used the following on my card:

Just a Note

I have to say I LOVE the Lush Lilac collection! 
I have had so much fun creating projects with these florals........ 
and the colours! Ah they remind me of my Grandma, 
she would have loved recieving this card for sure!
Lol she loved every shade of purple bless her.

For this card I used lots of layers and distressed the edges
with a Tim Holtz distresss tool. Of course I used lots of glitter....
every layer has the Crystal clear powder on it around the edges.
See those little tags? I cut them from one of the 6" x 6" paper from
the Lush Lilac paper collection.

Have lots of crafty fun everyone!
