Heartfelt Creations January Alumni Design Team Blog Hop

Here we are again with a Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team blog hop just for you.  Each month we gather together and bring to you this wonderful hop to share our creations and hopefully inspire you to use your Heartfelt Creations products to create beautiful pieces!

If you arrived here from Kerry Urbatch's  blog you are right on track and remember to leave a comment on as many of our blogs  as you can because you never know which blog will have the winning comment. You could be the winner of a $25 gift certificate for product from Heartfelt Creations.  You have until midnight January 30th. to comment and the winner will be announced on January 31st.

I have used some of the wonderful stamps and dies from the January, 2015 release (Birds and Blooms)  I just love these cute little fluffy birds sitting on a tree branch ready to welcome Spring!  After I cut them out and colored them I used my McGill Paper Shaping Tools to give these little guys a more dimensional look.

My card is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" and can easily be mailed in a regular envelope without extra postage.  I used dimensional tape to pop up the birds and give some added dimension.  I can just tell I will be using these cute little guys often.

Your next stop after this will be Lee Ann Barrett and remember to leave a comment on as many blogs as you can and good luck to you all!

Missing You And Banner Tails.......

I have been quite taken by banners and have purchased a few dies since I love and am addicted to dies.  I also am a huge fan of embossing folders but I have more dies than folders.  This is one of my favorites, called Textile Textures by Cuttlebug.  I use it often and think it gives an elegant background.  Did you notice the pretty little metal butterfly?  My good friend Kathy Clement (Big Wave) sent me an envelope filled with sequins and little shapes and pretties.  This just sort of fell out of the bunch when I was transferring them over into a little bin and I felt like I should use it quickly.  I added the pretty little beads down the center and I think it made an excellent addition to my card.  Thanks Kathy!

Be sure and check back tomorrow as the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team brings you a blog hop filled with so much inspiration.  See you then!

Good morning everyone!  Here we are at another Friday Morning and getting ready to jump headlong into the weekend!  Even though I no longer work outside the home and basically spend every day doing what I want, I still get excited about the weekend.

WOYWW #294

Good morning everyone and welcome to WOYWW.  If you are wondering about this little get together you can go over and visit Julia's blog (she is the owner and creator of this world wide blog hop).  She has all the rules and regulations posted there.  Come and join in and become addicted like the rest of us!

I have been so very busy cleaning and decided to show you some of the finished product!  No crafting going on here...everything was put on hold while I scared off the dust bunnies!  No wonder I was struggling to breathe!

Just look at all the clean space here this morning.  Of course we all know this is not going to last but I'm very proud of myself anyway!

This desk was sitting out in middle of the floor up on risers for standing when my back gives problems.  I was beginning to feel so shut in and had to do something.  It came down off the risers so it would fit against the wall and holds my Ebosser and Big Shot.  I seldom use markers so these are on this desk as well.

And this little number used to sit in a corner with a light tent on it that I seldom used.  The tent is folded and stored and I turned these shelves on their side and put on top to hold my Spellbinders Dies.  The twp bottom shelves of these cabinets were always in shadow and now I can see all the labels on the cases so I can find what I'm looking for.  I haven't decided yet but I may trade places with these and the desk that holds the Ebosser.  So many decisions but I want it to all work well.  Today is another day.

Well that's all for me this morning.  I hope I haven't carried on to long and cluttered the blog hop too much!  Julia likes us to keep this short and sweet!  Now I'm off to visit...I've shown you mine, now show me yours!
