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!

This is such an adorable collection for little girls! Just love the little house with all the elements to create the perfect cottage scene! For my creation this week, I decided to make a wall hanging with a cute fairy cottage scene.



The base of the wall hanging is a page from a chipboard album I bought at Michaels that I covered with  the Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection. The cottage is cut from white with the Wildwood Cottage Die and embossed with Ditsy Dots Embossing Folder The roof is cut with gray cardstock using the same die set. All the other elements are stamped with black ink, colored with pencils and mineral spirits and die cut with the matching dies. Everything here has a matching die which makes putting these little scene together so much easier!

Here is a little close-up of the fairies.





To add some sparkle, I used Clear Wink of Stella on the fairy's wings and then dusted with Shell White Glitter. I also used Clear Wink of Stella on the flower petals.

Christmas Skates Card


Hi there!

Just a quick post to show you a simple Christmas card I made using the Celebrate the Season Collection from Heartfelt Creations.





I used the Celebrate the Season Designer Papers for the image block and the purple mat. The skates and leaves were stamped on Solar White with Onyx Black Ink, colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps and die cut with matching dies. The skates were popped for dimension and the leaves were shaped, offset and glued over the skate laces. Before adding the mat to the card I stamped the sentiment using Seedless Preserves Ink.

Here is a picture of the inside of the card.




I used the sentiment from the Gift Wrapped Presents Set for the image, stamping on Solar White with Onyx Black Ink. I colored this with pencils and mineral spirits and trimmed it down. This is matted with turquoise designer paper that was inked with Baja Blue Ink.

Woodsy Wonderland Side Step Card


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for the new release from Heartfelt Creations, the Woodsy Wonderland Collection! Love this collection, it's perfect for guy cards! Here is a little write up about it.

Heartfelt Creations invites you to lose yourself in an enchanting woodsy wonderland filled with magnificent wildlife, beautiful scenic expanses and delicate field flowers. A stunning paper collection showcasing a beautiful outdoor themed color palette of rushing river blues, orange and yellow sunset hues, grass like greens accented with the softest wildflower whites, deep purples, and posy pinks, pulled together and grounded with dark tree bark browns, sky blues and moss like greens.


For my first card with this collection I decided to create a forest scene using a side step card for the base. These scenes are so much fun to create!




The back fold has the 3-trees, the second has 2 of the foxes facing each other and the rest is all on the front of the base. All the images were colored with pencils and mineral spirits and cut with their matching dies. I like the way everything look on the black base, really makes it all pop!

Golden Bath Time


Happy Wednesday!

Today I have another card using the Pampered Pooch Collection from Heartfelt Creations. This week with an adorable golden retriever having a bath! I love these golden images, especially where I have a golden retriever myself :) Here is my card!



Aren't they cute? As soon as I saw this collection, I couldn't wait to color this little guys!

The "frame" I created for the image is made with one of the card panels from the designer papers that I matted with green and added to a brown card base. The images were all colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps...my favorite way to color! The 2 little goldens were die cut with a matching die. The Best Wishes tag was die cut from the designer papers.

In case you're interested...here is my golden retriever, Bailey! The sweetest boy ever!




This picture was taken in my craft room by my desk...he's waiting for me to move the cords so he can lay down. Such a sweet face :)

There’s nothing better than sharing time with your four legged fur baby, soaking in the adoration found in their bright eyes, the love displayed through their wagging tails and those endless supplies of slobbery kisses!  Whether you’re enjoying the antics of a young energy filled and mischievous puppy, or the relaxed and laid back company of an older furry friend, you are sure to fall in love with the new Pampered Pooch Collection by Heartfelt Creations!  This newest paper collection is filled with adorable fun loving illustrations of heartwarming pooches, their favorite treats, and pretty floral touches all set against beautiful shades of denim blues, grassy greens, chocolate browns and crisp creams.  The four captivating cling stamp sets include charming illustrations of man’s best friends at play, sitting pretty and even causing just a slight paw-full of trouble.  These adorable images have been coupled with a multitude of sentiments perfect for so many different occasions and are ideal for the young and the young at heart!  Cute dimensional pooch themed embellishments such as doggie bone shaped treats, paw prints, collars and of course a collection of fun loving furry friends themselves are easy to achieve when pairing the coordinating cling stamps and die combinations. So relax, get creative and celebrate great memories of canine friends both past and present, create a little something special for that puppy adoring friend who’s going through a “ruff” time, or simply lay back and bask in the joy of life as our wet nosed, fur covered friends do as we share with you the Pampered Pooch Collection…drool not included!

Here is my first creation with this collection!



This little guy is so cute! I love the paw print designer paper for the background too. The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. This is a fairly quick card to put together once you have the coloring done!

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see what the designers have for you! So many cute projects!

Lavender Roses Anniversary Frame Card


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration from Heartfelt Creations! We are also doing a cross promotion with Creative Embellishments today featuring their amazing line of chipboard!

For my card I'm using the beautiful Classic Rose and Blushing Rose Collections along with a Fancy Oval Frame Chipboard from Creative Embellishments.




The flowers were stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. They were colored with chalk inks using make-up applicators and die cut with their matching dies.





The chipboard frame was painted with acrylic paint twice and then coated with VersaMark Ink and embossed with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel.

Make sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations' Blog to see all the beautiful projects by the designers this week! Emma Lou also has sneak peek of the next collection being released on November 9th!
