Last Heartfelt Wednesday!

I'm a little sad posting this last post for Heartfelt Creations project!  I can't believe a year has already gone by, I had so much fun designing for HC but it will be nice to stand by and watch what the other designers do!  They have another amazing design team for this term!  I just love there products so I'll still be playing along with the alumny just without the deadlines.  Well I thought I'd create a layout for my last HC project... Here is what I came up with...

I just love the way the flower cluster came out on this page.  As always please check out what the rest of the designers came up with this week.  I did have a little bit of additional inspitation for this project.  I love playing around with some of the challenge sites in blogger and I found a few that were really interesting to me.  Kraft It Up has a great challenge on right now we had to use Kraft cardstockas the base and we had to add another 3 kraft items to the page as well so I have the border piece, the photo mat and the alpha blocks where printed on kraft.

I also used the sketch over at Bird is the Word... this is fast becoming another favorite site for there incredible inspiration.  The word was... as if you couldn't guess Future, I used the Eleanor Rosevelt quote... "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of there dreams."

Well thanks for stopping by!

Featuring Grandpa's antique wooden carriage and super-sized mushrooms, this set will delight with a brand-new twist on a traditional theme. There are 5 new PreCut Stamp Sets and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations.

For my project this week I cam up with another simple layout... It seams to be getting easier to come up with masculine pages thanks to these amazing stamps.  Here is what I came up with.

The stamping was colored with distress inks and I love that the stamps come with matching dies so what would normally take a long time to cut out takes only minutes with the dies!  Makes life so much easier.  Don't forget to leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog for your chance to win the entire new collection!  I'm playing along with Shopping our Stash this week... They are challenging us to make a masculine project.

Birthday card (Heartfelt Creations)

Well I was playing around with my stamps and I came up with a few quick and simple card idea's.  I actually did a masculine and feminine card using the same design.  I really like the way these came out!

Here is the his...

And the hers...

I really love how versatile these stamps are! 

This week it's Anything Goes at Anything Goes so I'll be submitting my creations there as well as Diva's By Design and Paper Take Weekly.

Well hope everyone has a great week!

My kind of guy (Heartfelt Creations)

It's Wednesday!  Is it just me or is time just speeding by lately!  Seams like everytime I turn around it is another Wednesday!  Well I'm happy to share another Heartfelt Creations layout with you today.  Wroking with the My Guy collection has been so much fun!  Talk about getting out of my comfort level though!  Masculine pages like I said last week are NOT easy for me at all!  Am I ever glad that I only have a daughter, it sure make my layouts alot easier!  So this time around I did a heavily distressed page.  I love the way it turned out but getting there was alot harder than it normally is!  But I guess that is the great thing about being on a design team you never know what you are going to get to play with and I do enjoy a challenge!  Here is what I came up with this week...

I cut out a few words from the My Guy PreCut Set for the title which I colored with smooch ink and I also added Glossy Accents to add alittle bit extra pop to the title.  As you can see I deeply distressed all the edges by stamping the grass from the Scenery Builder PreCut Set all along the edges of the page.  Then I crumpled up the edges ran my distresser along the edges and inked all the edges and creases in black.  I also created a dog ear to add the Western Collage PreCut Set to the edge, here is a close-up...

For the last close-up of the day here is the gorgeous horse stamp from the Western Bronco PreCut Set that I colored using copic markers and prisma crayons.  I cut it out using the coordinating Western Bronco Die.

I'm also sharing this layout at Craft Us Crazy for there anything but a card challenge!  Well that is it for me today!  Hope you have a great day!
