It's almost show time

The Brisbane expo is only a week and a bit away, and the tutors are all very busily preparing kits for the show. I'm really looking forward to sharing some Heartfelt Creations with lots of Brisbane people and visitors. I';m very excited that both my Saturday and Sunday classes are sold out, and there are only a couple of spots left for Monday. 





In the meantime I have some more projects to share using the new Heartfelt Creations collection Cascading Fuchsias. This is an amazing collection, and the feedback has been very good. I will have lots of projects using this collection on display at the show, and hopefully, you may even have the opportunity to buy some for yourself from the Arnold's Scrapbooking stand. 

I really love this decorative die. It's so pretty.




And more pretty flowers just hanging.



My blog pick this week is a very pretty project by Anne Harada. Love how she has used this die with a different paper collection. Check it out on the blog here where you can also see a new video from Emma Lou and get a glimpse of the collection for next month.

A new Heartfelt collection.

The new collection from Heartfelt Creations is out, and is one of my favourite collections so far (yes, I know I say that a lot). This one is called Cascading Fucshias, and is one of the most interesting paper flower die sets I have seen. These are truly dimensional in every sense of the word, and the colours in the papers are so very pretty.

Here are a few things I have been working on with this awesome collection.

How pretty is this new decorative oval die. So delicate and sweet.



I really wanted to create a project that will highlight the hanging nature of these lovely flowers.




Meanwhile, you must absolutely take a look at Robin's work on the blog with these flowers. She is the master!!!

Another great week with Heartfelt Creations.

This past weekend I spent the day at Arnold's Scrapbooking on Brisbane's north side teaching two Heartfelt Creations workshops. The first was an altered flowerpot, and then in the afternoon we made three pretty fancy cards. While not too technically difficult, these were pretty involved projects, and everyone did a wonderful job...even if we didn't all get finished. I had a great  time with the lovely Arnold's customers and I hope everyone had a fun day. 

Meanwhile it is time for another project share from the blog this week. This is our last week working with Everyone Heroes before the new collection is released, and I am pretty excited about this one, as I know that everyone is going to really love it.



Go and check out lots of projects by the Heartfelt Design Team on the blog this week, and while you are there, you can see an exclusive preview of the next collection I was talking about.

Some recent work on the Memory Maze blog:

Thanks for joining me with some new projects featuring Memory maze products. I don't normally do matching posts, but I had such a great time with this collection, that I couldn't put it away. It was nice to do some good fussy cutting again, it feels like it has been ages.

Precious Memories

I have used Graphic 45 papers for this project. The florals are so pretty.  I started by swiping some Viva 3D stamp paint across the page in several spots, then used a hexagon stencil over the top with thick texture paste. I sprinkled fairy glitter over the top before it dried.





I used some chipboard scrolls to enhance my layout. Both pieces are quite delicate, so I didn't have a lot of surface area to play with.






 I painted each piece with Viva 3D Stamp Paint. This has such pretty sparkle to it. I then applied some glue in random spots and added some microbeads in a matching colour for added texture.

Precious Cards


Since I already had the papers out, I decided to continue with some matching cards.





I have used a hanging three frame split into individual pieces. I painted these with more Viva paint, then sprinkled fairy glitter over the top for even more sparkle.









On this one I also used the same stencil again, with the smaller section.






I painted each of the titles in Ranger liquid pearls, so that they would stand out over the frame.
