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!

Birthday Owl Swinging


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for a little inspiration with Heartfelt Creations!

This week I decided to use the Sugar Hollow Collection from a couple of months ago. I love these cute little owls!




The owl, swing and tree are all from the same set, Sugar Hollow Hangout. They all have matching dies to go with them which makes it fun piecing them together! I colored all the images with pencils and mineral spirits and used chalks for the owl belly and eyes.

The flowers are the Berry Blossoms from the Berry Cafe Collection. These also have a matching die so they are easy to cut out and shape. Not sure how realistic the flowers are with the tree, but I liked they way they looked together:)

The birthday sentiment is from the Sunrise Lily Flute Set. Three collections all in one card!

Here is a picture of the inside of the card. I used the little floral corner from the Berry Blossoms Set for this.

Merry Christmas Sleigh


Happy Wednesday!

I'm finally back with a post! So sorry to be absent lately! I've been on vacation and also busy working for Heartfelt Creations behind the scenes...keeping me busy:)

My card this week is from the new Celebrate the Season Collection released July 13th. I love the colors in this collection! There is something so calming about the teal and lavender colors together and I love that it's a little different from the typical red and green for Christmas.




I used the Celebrate the Season Paper Collection for the background mat and to cut the pre-printed sleigh. The other pieces, flowers, presents and mittens, were stamped on white cardstock and colored with Prismacolor Pencils and mineral spirits. All of these pieces, including the sleigh, have matching dies to cut them with which makes things so much easier!

Here's a little close up of the flowers for you.




Emma Lou has a wonderful video for you here to show you how to shape the poinsettia flowers and holly. She also shows you some great tips and techniques along with a complete look at the collection.

Happy Wednesday!

I'm back with another card using the Botanic Orchid Collection of stamps and matching dies! This time I'm using the beautiful Botanic Window Die with the orchids and hummingbirds!




There are different ways you can use the window die, I opted to just use the outside of it so I could put the sentiment in the middle.

The flowers and hummingbirds are all colored with pencils and mineral spirits and then cut with their matching dies.

Botanic Orchid Hummingbird

It's time for another Heartfelt Creations project, once again using the  new Botanic Orchid Collection released last week.  This time I have a very clean and simple card using the Botanic Orchid Bouquet Cling.

The image was colored with pencils and mineral spirits using paper stumps. The flower center has Heart of Gold Prills added with glue.
