My new Spellbinders Collection - Celebrate the Day

Hello Friends,
I would like to announce that my new collection of die sets for Spellbinders is available now. This collection is called Celebrate the Day and it has 10 new die sets that you would love for that special day. You can click HERE to go to the Spellbinders website to see all my die sets. Here are some pictures of the projects you can create with these die sets.
































These projects are really easy to make, all the work is in the die. The dies have all the cutting and scoring lines for you. I will be showing you how to make some of these projects really soon. 
The Pop-Up sentiment dies are great for the front of the card as well as the inside of the card as you can see in the picture below. They fold flat when you close your card. 



We had so much fun at the CHA Creativation 2017 Trade Show in Phoenix, Arizona a couple of weeks ago. The Spellbinders booth was beautiful, they did a great job with my display table. 






My friend Stacey who owns Scrapbooking Made Simple on-line store, has all my new Spellbinders die sets on sale right now! You can go HERE to order and she will ship them to you. 


Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!

Heartfelt Creations - Happy Easter Card

Hello Friends,
Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection! Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season! The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified. The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross. Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction. The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus. Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood florals. Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets! Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies. The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!
