Floral pretties

So obviously anyone who knows me, knows how much I like working with florals, so I was super excited about Heartfelt Creations releasing a new flower die and stamp set for January.  The collection is called Majestic Morning and is so pretty with bright colours and sweet flowers. Last week I made this three dimensional card. I used a co-ordinating background stamp first, then layered the flowers over the top for perfect placement. I love that the stamped images for the flower dies add a nice edge detail.

For the blog this week I altered a little mini lantern that I found in a $2 shop. It was already painted white, so that made this a pretty easy little project. I again used one of the co-ordinating stamps as a platform for my large flower cluster, which gave some nice little leaf details (see close up). As is often the case for me, I also added some larger leaf dies to bulk up the clusters. 
This project made a nice little gift idea with some chocolates inside. I really like how this one turned out :)

As always the other designers have some really pretty projects to show with this collection too, check out the blog here.

Majestic Morning reveal

During the past week, Heartfelt Creations have released their new January line called Magestic Morning at CHA. This is such a pretty line, and the die for this collection is a new floral (my favourite). Not only that, but the petals are all joined in one single die, which makes stamping and die cutting so much easier. 

Here's a layout I have had on the Heartfelt Creations blog using this line, which I am also proud to say was on display in the booth at CHA.

See, there it is on the wall (Thanks for the pic Angelica).

I also made a card that was on the blog this week.

I'll have a few more projects from this collection ready to share over the next few weeks too.

A little 2013 review

I've seen a few people posting about some of their favourite projects from last year, and thought I might follow suit.

This first one was my entry for the Spellbinder DT. I didn't make it on the team, but I still really love this project. I've used Prima papers, chipboard, and lots and lots and lots of die cuts. All the flowers are handmade.

This one was for Ruby Rock-It (partner swap with Scrap FX). Love how this turned out, and love looking at it in my scrap room.
 This one was made with lots of Manor House Creations flowers. How pretty are those flowers and the delicate frames. The papers are Prima (not sure what company the chipboard is). The chipboard is all glittered.

This next one was for Down Under Direct. The flowers are all handmade. The papers are Bazzill.

 This one was one of my magazine covers for the year. It's still very exciting to see my work on the front cover. The photo was from our trip to Mexico last year. I played with embossing powders on the chipboard to make it look like water drops.

 And one more from Manor House Creations. Such a lovely company to design for and such beautiful flowers, makes it easy to make pretty pages.

Now onto 2014!

Another busy month gone by.

A bit slack with the posts again, but I do have lots of Heartfelt Creations work to share.

 This one went up on the blog today. I adore all the flowers that can be created with the Heartfelt dies. Once they were made, the rest of the card came together really quickly and easily.

 Here's one from last week, with lots of layers and naturally more pretty flowers.

I've been working on lots of projects for CHA. The ranges are so pretty. Be sure to check out the website for a sneak peek of the new range and a chance to win the whole lot. 

Lastly, these are some cute little gift lolly bags I made in the lead up to Christmas for Ruby Rock-It.
