This week I made a couple of cards to show you how anyone with any level of experience can use Heartfelt Creations line of products, so I simply used paper and a stamp from the Raindrops on Roses line to make a couple of Heartfelt Creations Window Cards.
Here is a list of the products that I used that you can find right here at CutatHome.
Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses 12 x12 Paper Pack – SKU: HCDP1 240
Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses Window Rubber Stamp – SKU: HCPC 3587

Today I’m sharing two versions of the same card using Spellbinders Majestic Labels 1 and Spellbinders Shapeabilites Gold Corbels & Accents. By using my suggestions everything else can pretty much be grabbed from what you have on hand. That’s always a nice feeling isn’t it, using up our stash and stockpile, and yes, I know you have one just as I do!
This card is 6″x6″, a little larger than I normally make, but I wanted to have room for the center aperture to take the focal point. I cut the dies nestling one inside the other, all but the outer

Today I want to show you a gift that I made using Sizzix Susan’s Garden Narcissus/Paperwhites dies. Paperwhites are beautiful flowers that can bloom indoors in the worst of winters. They add such beauty and fragrance, as well as a reminder that spring is just around the corner. This year I received a Thanksgiving gift of some paper white bulbs. It was such fun to watch them grow – very quickly they were more than three feet tall. The blooms were lovely and fragrant. I’ve included pictures below of the real flowers, as well as my interpretation.

Today is Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday”. In certain parts of the country, that means a day of parades and masks and beads and lots of fun. In my part of the country, it is paczki day – a day to overindulge in a traditional Polish jelly donut like creation (paczki are actually richer and heavier than a jelly donut). Regardless of how you celebrate, I wanted to make a card to mark the occasion.
This is a very simple card, and of course you could dress it up more if you prefer. I started by making the components. The masks

Today I am sharing a card/box. The first time I made one of these was a few years ago, and everyone loved it! Today I made a Card Box using Spellbinders Gold Labels One, a brand new die set that coordinates with Spellbinders Nestabilities Label One.

Here is another way to use Heartfelt Creations Majestic Morning stamp set. This project is simple yet detailed by the wonderful stamp Heartfelt Creations has put together for us.
First I started with my background paper, selecting a gold polka-dot from Bo Bunny‘s Key Lime collection and cutting it to cover the the front of my card. Next using archive ink that is waterproof I stamped the Majestic Morning Accent on the water color paper. Once this is dry you want to moisten the watercolor sheet using a brush. Once the are to be colored is wet, select 3-4 color sprays of choice. Place a drop of each

Today’s card features four Spellbinders Dies and Graphic 45‘s Botanical Tea Paper. I used a cream card base for a standard A2 size card, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ when folded. Using the Spellbinders Divine Eloquence die I cut the frame for the front focal point of the card. Next I used Spellbinders Labels 36 to cut the aperture through the front of the card base (you can see step by step directions on how to line up, mark and cut this in the video).
To create the lattice work (shown from the inside in the photo above) I used Spellbinders

I have been having a blast with Sizzix Framelits lately and want to show you some of the fun A2 Flip-its cards that I have done just recently. They are so easy! Seriously, the hardest part is picking out your paper. The rest is a cinch! Sizzix has made it so easy with the Framelits Die Sets. They include everything you need to create unique flip cards. I didn’t even use all of the pieces that came with the sets to make these cards, so there are lots of options available for other cards I have yet to create. I

Today I would like to share some information on a new product to our store, Elizabeth Craft Designs which we have just recently brought on, and is the brainchild of Els Van de Burgt. Els was born in The Netherlands and is fluent in the universal language of crafts and creativity – along with English, Dutch and German (WOW!). She is a prolific designer, talented artist, author of three craft books and a gifted and energetic teacher.
With the recent move of the business to beautiful Evergreen Colorado, Els can spend even more time in the place she loves most. With

Howdy! Today I am working with DCWC Blossom Song Stack to create my Majestic Blooms birthday card utilizing a minimum amount of products. Who doesn’t love simplicity and a fast project? To start I selected 4 sheets from the stack. For the background I am a using a plaid sheet, trimming it and placing in my Silhouette Cameo to write “Happy Birthday” with the Silhouette Sketch Pens in Glitter Green.
Next, I embossed the same piece of card stock with Darice “Swirls” using my Cuttlebug. Now you have your “base layer ready”.
Now for the details, using the Silhouette Cameo I proceeded

I really like Spellbinders Die-D-Lites dies, they cut nicely and leave such beautiful impressions on the cuts. The Filigree Cross is no exception, you can cut just the outline of the cross out, but what fun is that? By layering the two dies together you get a beautifully intricate cross cut from your papers. (I also used my Magnetic Platform in my Sizzix Big Shot to hold these thin dies in place, it works so well!) In my instance I used double layers of paper to create thicker, deeper, impressions on the cross I attached to the paper.

Many of you ladies may think this is a little backward, but at my house my hubby is the chocoholic, and since I have been changing my eating habits over the last 10 months he has been telling me he doesn’t need sweets (HA!), so this darling little Valentine Candy Heart Box is the perfect size for a few chocolates, BUT not so many he looses all control. He CAN eat the whole box of chocolates and not feel guilty-at all! It’s perfect.
Don’t think this would take hours to do either, this baby is SO easy! Sizzix Bigz Scorboards XL

This week I made a Waterfall card using Raindrops on Roses rubber stamps. I first learned how to make these cards through Splitcoast Stampers but I altered the pattern to my liking. I am going to show you how I make a Waterfall card. I have to admit the first time I tried to make one I was a little intimidated, but it’s really not hard at all. I hope that my video will make it easy for you if this is your first time making one.
Here is a list of supplies that I used:

For those of you who are Tilda and Edwin fans, you will go nuts over what I have to show you in the Magnolia CHA 2014 booth! Their designers are incredible with making elaborately elegant creations with the simply cute designs of Tilda and Edwin. I am in awe! The images will be available for order on our website as soon as we get the okay to make them available, so keep an eye out!
I will just let the video speak for itself and I hope that you will forgive me for a few spots where I was slightly out

I am finally back to continue our tour, and today features Sizzix CHA 2014 booth! Oh my goodness, there was SO much to see there! To be quite honest, I’m not sure I got everything, because there was so much to see! If you like Sizzix, you will LOVE all of the new products that they will be coming out with over the next year! This is your sneak peek to make notes of all the things you see here for your wish list.
I know I was able to get shots of Brenda Walton, Stephanie Barnard, Lori Whitlock and Susan’s

One of the highlights of my trip last week was seeing Tim Holtz at CHA 2014! If you have never met him, let me tell ya, he has so much energy! I don’t know how he does it. He runs all over the show doing demos at several booths, meets with vendors and retailers, and still takes the time to answer questions and allows you grab a photo with him! He really knows how to do his P.R. and make you feel at ease.
I also want to share photos of some of his new dies and Textured Impressions pending release

Today is crazy, so it will be a quick view of Bo Bunny Booth CHA 2014. Sorry BB! I hope I can still capture the essence of their fun new products!
A little while back our designer Patti Senter showed us a wonderful video in her blog post using Bo Bunny’s Head over Heels Collection which was a lot of fun. You can refer to it HERE if you want to see what she did with her mini album. It turned out darling!
Unfortunately, this booth was so busy by the product that I couldn’t get in there well enough to video,

A while back my kids gave me money to buy something crafty . I opted for the Magnetic Platform from Sizzix for my Big Shot. Wow what a great choice that was. The Sizzix Magnetic Platform holds your thin dies in place while cutting. It’s a wonderful tool and has made my crafty life so much nicer. I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Filigree Delight dies with Heartfelt Creations Daphne Collection and Bo Bunny’s Head Over Heels Collection. These two paper lines are at opposite ends of the spectrum which is really good because it will show you how different a look you can make with

We are featuring the Heartfelt Creations CHA 2014 Booth today which includes their most recent Majestic Morning and Raindrops on Roses Collections! Both of these collections are stunning, but they are completely different color pallets and design. Both paper pads in each collection are created for the card maker and scrapbooker in mind as on on one side of each sheet there are card fronts and the other side is for creating scrapbook pages. Awesome! Of course you are not limited to doing one or the other, you can do whatever your imagination lets you. Both of these collections are
