Super Special Saturday Forsythia Wreath

This past Thursday I had the honor to show a great group of ladies how to make lilacs using the Heartfelt Creations lilac stamps and dies. Everyone had a grand time and went home with some lovely lilac accessories. As I was getting ready to leave I noticed a forsythia on the hostess’s door. She saw my mind going and I said to her look at your wreath forsythia flowers have four petals and a very similar shape to lilacs. I am going to go home and play around and see if I can make a wreath. So I used CTMH canary yellow paper stamped with CTMH cream brulee ink. I shaped the flowers the opposite way from making the lilac flowers in the Heartfelt Creations shaping mold. I placed HEart of Gold prills in the center of each flower. The leaves are die cut with Stampin Up old olive paper. What do you think of the wreath? I am entering the wreath in the Crafting with Friends Anything Goes challenge.

Fabulous Friday Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the April 2018 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Blog Hop. You should be coming here from (Marie Gamber –
The hop begins at 8AM EST on (April 27, 2018) and runs until 11:59PM EST (April 30, 2018) The winner of the hop will be announced on the Heartfelt Creations Blog and Facebook page on May 2, 2018.
I made a double shadow box using the Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilacs Collection and added butterflies using the stamp and die from the Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medley collection. I used two of the Heartfelt Creations 6 inches x 6 inches shadow boxes. First I attached the two shadow boxes together to form a foldout booklet that stands so you can see both shadow boxes at the same time. I attached the boxes using two pieces of kraft paper. On the front I cut out the window image and then stamp, color, and die cut the lilacs that grace the left side. I stamp, color and die cut a butterfly to look like a yellow swallowtail butterfly. I used the Heartfelt Creations heart dies to make the heart shape for the shaker that doubles as a magnetic closure for the double shadow boxes! The shaker is filled with tiny beads that I had in my stash. When you open up the shadow box you have two images displayed with die cut elements that have been stamp, color, die cut from the Lush Lilac collection and Butterfly Medley collection. The outside of the frames are the Heartfelt Creations Sweetheart Border that have been embossed with antique gold embossing powder. On the back I cut another image from the collection. This was such a fun item to create and I look at it often in hopes that last of the snow showers will disappear to allow spring to arrive!

Team Tuesday Chest of Drawers

This was a fun project to make where the drawers can be filled with any small goodies such as candy or jewelry. Cut four pieces of card stock 6 inches by 7 3/8 inches and score at 1 3/8 inches on all four sides. Cut the four tabs to allow folding of the tabs inwards and glue to create four individual drawers. Cut decorative paper and mat the front of each drawer as desired. I used very heavy card stock that was already decorative and did not add additional decorative paper.

Cut two pieces of card stock 4 1/4 inches x 6 1/4 inches and score on both short sides and one long side at 3/4 inches. Cut and glue the tabs to create two shelves.

Cut two pieces of card stock 3 3/8 inches x 9 1/2 inches and score at 4 3/4 inches and 8 7/8 inches. Glue the two pieces together to create a frame.

Turn one shelf over and drop it onto a drawer and repeat with the second drawer. Place one drawer with a shelf in the bottom of the frame. Place the second drawer with a frame on top of the first drawer. Place the third drawer in place. Once you are satisfied with how the drawers and shelves fit in the frame, remove them from the frame. Starting with bottom drawer and shelf, glue the sides of the shelf to the inside of the frame. Repeat for the second drawer and fit the third drawer in place. You can add decorative brads to the front of each drawer as desired to ease in opening and closing the drawers!

Take the last drawer and punch a decorative border into each side to form legs for your chest of drawers. Glue the drawer upside down on the outside of the frame to  form the “stand” for the chest of drawers.

Cut a 1 inch x 12 inches piece of card stock to create a strip for a handle. Glue the handle to each side of the drawers to allow for easy transport. What do you think of the chest of drawers?

Marvelous Monday Note Cards and Gift Box

Rotate the card stock 90 degrees and score at 3 3/4 inches and 8 1/4 inches. Fold on all the score lines. Turn 90 degrees and cut along the two vertical lines up to the first horizontal line. Turn the square and repeat for the other side. Fold up the two center pieces and fit and stick the outer pieces to create the box. Fold down along the scored tabs and stick down. Cut a 3 inches by 7 inches rectangle from the card stock and score at 3 inches and 5 inches. This piece will be the clasp. Shape the corners of the front of the clasp and valley fold on the score lines. Fit and mate the clasp onto the base of the handbag. Cut two strip of 1/2 inches x 11 inches from the paper to create the handles. Attach the handle to each corner with brads.

Super Special Saturday Triangular Rose Box

This little box literally takes less than five minutes to make. You can create the triangular box in almost any size as long as you start with a square piece of paper. I used 8 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches black card stock to make the base of the box. Then I cut three 4 inches by 4 inches square and cut them on the diagonal to cover the triangles on the top of the box. I made and added a rose using Heartfelt Creations stamp and die. Directions to properly fold the box can be located at:
