Heartfelt Creations April Blog Hop

Hello and welcome here!  It finally feels like Spring in my neck of the woods, I hope you're having lovely Spring weather too!  It's hard to believe it's the end of April but that means it's time for another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop.  If you've come from Alissa's Blog, you're on the right path, if not you can find the Blog List at the bottom of my post.

 The winner will be announced May 2nd on the HC Blog and Facebook page


 Good luck and have fun!


I made this cute little Traveling Case for this month's Blog Hop!  I found the instructions (by Tamra) over on Authentique's Facebook page HERE.  It's super cute and I couldn't resist making it all fancy.

I used Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection, I just love the blues and greens together.  The ornamental pieces are from my favourite die set Arianna Lace.

 I kept the outside 'plain' because I wanted the wow factor to happen when you open the box!

For the handle I used one of the border dies from Border Essentials.

Tada!  I envisioned the flowers tucked in the corner of the lid, but then I imagined them flowing down into the bottom part too!  You can store keepsakes in here.  Or leave some of the flowers off and use it on your desk to store paperclips etc. too!!!

I used another favourite, Window Box Elements die for the ornamental piece in the lid.

The flowers are stamped and cut using Botanical Rose.  They were cut using patterned paper in the Flowering Dogwood paper collection and white cardstock.


I love the cascading effect!  And it closes nicely, the flowers are small enough that they don't interfere with each other when closed.



I used Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter, Mini Prills and Nuvo Crystal Drops to embellish the flowers.

And finally, the bottom of the box inside.

Recipe- Heartfelt Creations PP-Flowering Dogwood, Heartfelt Creations Dies-Arianna Lace, Botanical Rose, Border Essentials & Window Box Elements, Heartfelt Creations Stamp-Botanical Rose, Heartfelt Creations Misc.-Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit, Mini Prills-Minnie Pearls, Papericious-Crystal Clear Glitter, & Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops-Ivory Seashell, Bazzill CS-Mysterious Teal & mint green, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Blush, Whisper & Juniper, Magnets, Foam, Pearls.

Now it's time to hop on over to Archana's Blog!

Orange is not one of my go to colours but I like using orange for masculine cards, so I'm sharing a masculine card using the sketch for inspiration.  I used this paper for a folio I was working on and decided to use the scraps to make a card!

I die cut stars in the same background colour to give it some dimension because it looked flat after using 3 pattened papers for the rest of the card.

 Good luck and have fun!


I'm sharing a fun exploding box with a twist!!  I found the tutorial over on the Facebook group Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations.  Tamra and her DT have a never ending cycle of tutorials, there is something for everyone!!!!  Now to just find more hours in a day to do them all!

I used the Classic Rose Paper Collection for my box.

The twist to this exploding box is that it hides little drawers when you remove the lid!!  There isn't much room for 3D items, but glitter works great for adding some wow.  I added some around the front of the drawer.

Here's what it looks like with the box open.

The Classic Rose Paper Collection has some great tags, borders, journaling cards etc.  I used a couple borders and made a tuck spot for a couple of journaling cards.

I used more of the smaller pieces from the collection to decorate the inside of my drawers.  What a cute surprise when you open it!!


I used the Classic Rose Cling Stamp and matching Die for my flowers.  The big rose I stamped on some patterned paper in the collection, the smaller roses I stamped on white cardstock.  I used my Deluxe Flower Shaping kit to shape them.

I also used my favorite die Arianna Lace to mat my rose with.  

 
 I added Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter to add some bling to my flowers, who doesn't love glitter!?!

In the lid I hid another tuck spot!  Okay, I confess, I cut my paper too short and didn't have enough of the dark purple to cut another, so I cut a triangular piece to add as a pocket!

These tags come with the Classic Rose Collection!
 
 I used the Border Essentials Die to add a pretty edge to my lid.

And I didn't forget to decorate the bottom, it makes a perfect spot to leave a little personal note.

 Recipe:  HCDP1-270 Classic Rose Paper Collection, HCPC-3752 Classic Rose Cling Stamp, HCD1-7110 Classic Rose Die, HCD1-783 Border Essential Die, HCD1-747 Arianna Lace Die, Bazzill CS-purple, green & black, CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Whisper, New England Ivy, Gypsy, Sorbet & Blush, Distress Ink-Stormy Sky, Papericious Crystal Clear Glitter, Nuvo-Glitter Accents Fresh Snowfall & Crystal Drops Ivory Seashell, Pearls.


You've reached the end of the Blog Hop, I hoped you were inspired by all the crafty goodness!!
