Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop: Black Friday Goodies!


Hello there inky friends!  Today I'm joining my fellow Heartfelt Creations Alumni Teamies as we share a fun treat for you this month!  If you've arrived here from Candy's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok.  I've included the complete blog roll at the bottom of my post.  The Hearfelt Creations Black Friday sale has begun and Oh My Goodness, the new Elegant Gateway Collection!  The Gatefold cards you can create with this collection are out of this world!  

I decided to go all Heartfelt and use their traditional pretty color palette.  I then stamped and colored some poinsettias from the Christmas Poinsettia and Holly Cling Set (Used the dies and the Shaping Mold too) to make my tri-fold card into a gorgeous Family Christmas Album.  It's the perfect gift for a family treasure!  

These three colors were the perfect mix for this card.  I just LOVE how they colored...After assembling three layers, adding some microfine glitter over them took them to the next level!
I tucked a few bits of gold ribbon, torn book papers and other ribbons to make this album front so fancy.  Sparkles were the key!  HEE HEE!

Golden bling on the inset of each poinsettia was a must for this fancy album!!! A few holly sprigs here and there help to bring in the fun festive vibe.  

Take a peek as I give you an all-around tour of this project.  It's READY for some beautiful black and white Christmas photos!  

This is the view as you open it from the front.  
This is the reverse as the tri-fold is opened...
As the album is closed, this is the view you see from the front.  OOOHHH...Love the fancy florals!  
As the album is closed, this is the view you will see on the back!  

Thanks for hopping over to check out my album.  Please hop on over to Magdalena's blog to see her inspiring work!

TCP New Release Day Is HERE!!!

Hello there!  Today we're celebratin' the new release!  The Cat's Pajamas is releasing ALL the kits into the wild... Yes, you can get the KITTY Kat Pack and the Poochie Pack today! I hope you have enjoyed all the lead-up to today's release.  SO much fun, so much inspiration right?  

Today I'm sharing inspiration featuring the fun new Scatter Joy set.  I just love this sweet set and the adorable little bunnies...I decided to create a festive winter scene complete with snipped trees and sparkling snow.  

 I paired the image up with some festive winter tree printed paper and some yummy chocolate grossgrain ribbon.  YUM!

So fun...Missing so many faces these days.  

Thanks for hopping over!  I hope my project inspires you to create something fun!  Make sure to head over to my Christine's blog and check out her inspirational work!

TCP Sneaky Peek Week Day 6: Theatre Cutable!


Hello there inky friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun project featuring the awesome new Theatre Cutable file released this month by The Cat's Pajamas.  This cut file (and other formats too) will allow you to create two different sized theatre cards..SO FUN!  While I do have a Silhouette Cameo and a Cricut Explore, I chose to use the PDF file to have a little fun experimenting with how much scrap I could rescue!  

Alma created a fun video tutorial to show you how to make this fun card and I know you will find it quite helpful.  Just check it out to see the paper be transformed!  Here's a link for our phone viewers:  VIDEO

I worked with two different cardstock colors to create my card.  To show you that there is very little scrap (see the last photo), I took a photo of how I cut each page in the template.  

So here is the last of the scraps...collected from all of the pieces.  I was able to keep the fur rectangles- and only had the tiny bits to throw away!  WOWEE!  

Since this was my first time making this printable, there are some things I would do differently when assembling the other card (I have all the pieces ready).  I will make sure to always be aware of the printed size so that it doesn't show in the final product.  In my first piece, I accidentally glued before checking and ended up with the printer lines in some spaces.  

I liked using the cute YETI TO PARTY STAMP AND DIE SET for this project...They're new and the tiny hearts worked perfectly colored up with watercolor pencils.  

I think it also looks so sweet tied together in a satin ribbon...I just can't wait to have another opportunity (and some free time) to make another one of these fun cards!  
Thanks for hopping over.  I hope this project inspires you to create something interactive....and to master the art of minimizing your scraps!  HEE HEE!  

See you again tomorrow for another fun sneak peek project!
