Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!


I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Christmas Blessings Covered Notepad


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for more Heartfelt Creations' inspiration using their new Winter's Eve Collection!

This week I have a fun and simple project you can make for gift giving at Christmastime.



You can click on the image to get a better close-up view if you like.

The pink papers are from the Winter's Eve Paper Collection.  I used them for the mats and also to make the flowers.  The flowers were done with white embossing powder and shaped using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.  Behind the flowers is the beautiful decorative die from the Window Box Elements Die Set.

Here's a little closeup of the flowers.





Here's a view of the inside of the pad.

Angel Tree


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for the new release for August!  This month we have another Christmas Collection called the Winter's Eve Collection.

Here is my first card for this new collection!




I love the little angel and tree scene.  I colored it with pencils and mineral spirits and popped in inside the window cut with the window die.  I added a window over it also colored with pencils and cut with it's matching die.  The beautiful medallions around the window are from the Window Box Elements Die set. I cut the larger one and added it on each side of the window.  You can see complete instructions for this at the end of my post if you would like them.

Festive Holly Christmas


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration with Heartfelt Creations!  This week I have another Christmas card using the new Festive Holly Collection of stamps, dies and designer papers.




I used one of the card panels for the background of the card die cutting the center with a circle die.  I then added white behind the opening with a sentiment stamped on it.

The holly images were all colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps, cut with the matching dies and then popped onto the card around the opening.  Fairly simple card to make, but comes out pretty and festive.

Cardinal Berry Christmas


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for the new collection from Heartfelt Creations! This time we have a Christmas collection for you called the Festive Holly Collection!

I LOVE cardinals so of course my first card is made with one of the beautiful cardinal images from the collection!




It's hard to see in the photo, but I love how the coloring came out on the image. I added white glue and white glitter to the "snow" on the branches which looks really pretty, but it's hard to see in the photo.

The red die cut is from the Festive Holiday Die. This is actually two pieces cut and glued together. This die is beautiful and will have lots of use I'm sure.

The background mat is designer paper from the collection. This is my favorite print from the paper!

Italiana Riviera Tile Coasters


Happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Forth of July yesterday! We had a great time with family and friends!

Today I have a simple gift you can make using tiles from the home improvement store and stamps and inks.






These are a set of four tiles that I simply tied ribbon around and added a tag for gift giving. Here you can see how the tile looks. I did each with the same image.




For the back of the tiles I used cork backing which you can see here.






I've made a bunch of these in the past for gifts and also made single tiles with gift packaging to sell at crafts fairs. You can see previous posts for these here and here.

I hope these give you a little inspiration for gift ideas. This image is perfect for giving to a friend for a house warming gift.

HCDP1-259 - Italiaan Riviera Paper Collection

Other Products: Ink: Staz-On Jet Black, Olive Green, Royal Purple, Saddle Brown; Accessories: purple sheer ribbon, natural twine, sand paper, 4 Tumbled Marble 4" x 4" Noce Tiles (Home Depot), make up applicators, cork Con-Tact self-adhesive, Staz-On cleaner, steel ruler, cutting mat, paper towels, craft knife

Instructions: Sand rough edges of tiles, clean off dust with water, wipe dry and let dry overnight. Stamp sentiment from Italiana Riviera Set on top of each tile and Italiana Grape Cluster image on bottom using Jet Black Staz-On Ink. (Note: Apply reinker to ink pad before stamping to make sure ink pad is very juicy when stamping.) Let tiles dry overnight or heat set well with a heat gun.

Using Staz-On inks and make-up applicators, dab colors on tiles to color images. I use paper towels to dab off excess ink before applying to tile and then go back and add more color to shadows. After coloring is completed, bake tiles at 300 degrees for 20 minutes. Let tiles cool.

Cut cork sheet into 3 5/8" squares using cutting mat, metal ruler and craft knife. Adhere cork squares to backs of tiles.

Create these in a group of 4 for gift giving. Cut a piece of sheer ribbon and tie the group of tiles together.

For the tag, die cut the pre-made label from the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection using the matching die from Luggage and Tags Die Set. Ink the edges of the tag with Saddle Brown Ink and tie to ribbon with twine.

Flowering Dogwood Branch Anniversary


Happy Wednesday!

I have another clean and simple card today using the Flowering Dogwood Collection from Heartfelt Creations, this time with an anniversary card.



I love this flowing dogwood branch and thought it went perfect with the Botanic Window Die! I colored the image with pencils and mineral spirits and also did a separate small flower the same way to add to the bow. The sentiment is stamped directly on the window center. I did an anniversary sentiment, but it would be nice with a wedding sentiment also.

Birthday Petunia Border


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little Heartfelt Creations inspiration!

This week I have a very clean and simple card using the Classic Petunia Collection.




The sentiment was stamped directly on the card base. I used a birthday sentiment, but you could use any sentiment you like.

I die cut the beautiful border using one of the Regal Borders & Pocket Dies. I love this die, definitely one of my favorites! On top of the border die I added a flower border colored with pencils and mineral spirits. The flower border is from the Large Classic Petunia Set and die cut with the matching die from the Large Classic Petunia Die.

For finishing touches, I added Clear Wink of Stella and glitter to the flowers and a few adhesive pearls to the border die cut and card base.

Petunia Birthday Cluster


Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm back with another card made using the new Classic Petunia Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Love this collection for spring cards!





This is a rather clean and simple design which I like to do sometimes. I stamped the sentiment directly on the white card base and added a little cheesecloth under the flowers to add interest. The flowers were colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stump. Love that these have matching dies to cut them out. Here is a little close up of the flowers for you.




I added Clear Wink of Stella and Shell White Glitter to the flowers after shaping them. I also used Prills for the flower centers.

Thankful Petunias


Happy Wednesday!

It's time again for me to share a card with you using Heartfelt Creations' new Classic Petunia Collection!

This week I'm using one of the images from the Classic Petunia Bouquet Set along with one of the small petunias from the Small Classic Petunia Set. Both have matching dies to cut the images.





The images were colored with pencils and mineral spirits. The "frame" was created with the designer papers using a die from the Cut Mat Create 2A Set to cut the center away. The green background is also paper from the collection that I stamped the sentiment on.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see what the designers have for you this week!

Tropical Cockatoo


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for me to share a little inspiration using Heartfelt Creations stamps, dies and designer papers! This week I have another card using the new Tropical Paradise Collection! Love this collection!
