Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and a Ruby Rock-It design team call.

Lots of exciting things going on at the moment. First up is my weekly contribution to the Heartfelt Creations blog. Loving the Roses on Raindrops range, and it is available right now at (Mum's shop) A Crafter's Passion.  As always, you can get the full instructions for this card over at the Heartfelt Creations blog.


In other massive news, it is time for a Ruby Rock-It Design Team call. This is an amazing and generous team to be part of it, with gorgeous product. I am so lucky to have been invited to spend this past 6 or so months designing for them. I would love to see some more of my fellow Aussies supporting this homegrown company. Please check out the details and get your submissions in.

More Raindrops on Roses.

Today I have another card to show using Heartfelt Creation's Raindrops on Roses. I really love this one, and this card came together so easily.  This one was on display at CHA also.


In addition to the Raindrops on Roses die and stamps, I have also used flower stamps and dies from Majestic collection.

You can get the whole instructions on how to make this card over on the Heartfelt Creations blog here.

Raindrops on Roses...one of my favourite things

Raindrops on Roses is a gorgeous new collection this month from Heartfelt Creations, and I think it is one of my favourite collections so far. Not only is it a purple based collection, but it is also floral...AND it includes an amazingly intricate die that I absolutely love. Best of all though, the cardstock releases from this die really easily, which is a bit usual for dies this detailed, and therefore a put off, but this one is perfect.

We got this collection to play with in December so it could be displayed at CHA. This is by far one of my favourite pieces for Heartfelt so far.

Heartfelt Creations and Robin's Nest

Thanks to everyone who has come to be part of the Ruby Rock-It blog hop. If you haven't seen that post yet, you can check it out here.

Meanwhile over at Heartfelt Creations this week, we have combined with The Robin's Nest. I've used some of their rubons along with some dew drops to create this card, along with some Sunny Day papers and Majestic Roses flowers. 


As always, I highly recommend checking out what everyone else has made this week too. Head over to the Heartfelt Creations blog to see.

A new Ruby Rock-It blog post for the new year.

Hello Ruby Rock-it Fans!  This month, we are featuring our beautiful, vintage inspired set of NEW MINI RANGES!  
We have SO many categories...Mother, Father, Christening, Family, Baby Boy, Baby Girl, 21st Birthday and Military!  Each range comes with 3 double sided patterned papers, a fun 3d sticker set, and fun die cut pack!

Today I have focused on babies, using both the Baby boy and Baby girl range. Both are very sweet, and I adore the new paper flowers to go with them. These are two different babies of course, but they look so similar. It's nice to go back and scrap some older photos sometimes. 


If you were lucky enough to attend CHA in Anaheim a few weeks ago, you may have seen this one in the booth.

Here's the order of our hop, in case you get lost along the way...

Some sharing from Down Under Direct

Today I am sharing some of the work that has been up on the Down Under Direct blog lately. There are lots of great ideas there for using your Spellbinders dies. In this one, I have used a large decorative label as a photo matt. I love all the delicate details. I've also used some Aster flower toppers, and some sprigs made from a die d-lite.

 
This next one uses lots of flowers made from the new(ish) die d'lite blooms. I LOVE these. Again I have used a large die as a photo matt. This is the 5x7 detailed scallops, and one of my favourite dies.




And a pretty little card to share, again using a die as a frame...see a pattern here?
The flowers are die d'lites as is the leaf sprig.
