Hi, fellow lovers of all things beautiful!
It’s been a while since I’ve been in touch……but I’ve been busy!! (& I couldn’t work out where my photos had gone and stored themselves in my computer!)
Our next card making classes are on 6th and 7th July. Please let me know if you would like to join us on one of those days. We’d love to see you! If you’re shy…..BRING A FRIEND with you!!! This is the card we made at our last class. I wanted to consolidate on the Lilacs. They are much, much easier to make than the roses, dogwoods and hibiscus, but are fun to work with. I combined the Lush Lilac and Sugar Hollow Collections along with the new frame dies. Of course, everything is covered in Vintage Glass Glitter and Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. There’s nothing like a bit of SPARKLE to brighten up your life, is there?!
This is the card we will be making at our next class. I may change the butterfly for a big double scrunched up vintage pale blue bow. I haven’t quite decided yet. What do you think? I have used a very pretty die for the background – the Sweetheart Borders die. It is SO pretty!! Of course, once again, everything sparkles! The butterfly is stamped on vellum with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.It is coloured on the back with alcohol pens.
If you would like to purchase any Heartfelt Creations stamps, dies, background papers etc, etc I DO have a shop in my home that you would be quite welcome to visit. Just send me a message.
That’s all for now… It’s been lovely talking with you today.
Hello again, my lovers of all things beautiful!
I want to share a card with you that we MAY make for our next classes on 4th and 5th of May. I have used the Lush Lilac collection…… & my head is buzzing with ideas. Sometimes I wish that my body could work as hard and fast as my head!!
If you would like to join us on either day, please just e-mail me from the CONTACT page on this blog. I’d love to share the card with you.
As usual, all of the sparkles don’t show up. It is VERY sparkly! The flowers are all covered in glitter, as are the frilly edges down the sides. I have added a close up so you can see the flower sprays a little more clearly. I have used 20 little flowers on this card, but having a Lilac Flower mold makes it much easier and quicker.
Th flowers still have to be stamped, coloured and cut out before molding, ‘tho’. However, we used to have to mold the flowers by hand, which is quite a lengthy process.
Can I here you ask “What is inside the bird cage?” ? Well…..I’ll show you!
Pretty, Eh?! Like it? I’m not sure if this is the card for May! May be!
Thanks for stopping by.

Hello again, dear friends.
I thought I would share with you a card that I made many months ago but didn’t share it with you. It’s a card I made when I was making all things under the sea! I suddenly realized that I hadn’t shown you all as yet!
This is another from “Under the Sea” Collection. The box-envelope is made from the paper that is a part of the collection. Once again,you can’t see the SPARKLE on the back ground card that the sea horses are on, unfortunately. The filigrees on the sides are from the Regal Borders and Pockets die set. Of course, as always, the shells, seahorses and Hibiscus flowers are all made from the stamps and dies from “Under the Sea” by Heartfelt Creations.
Our next Heartfelt Creations class (Jenny’s Cards From the Heart) are on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th May. If you would like to join us please just send me an e-mail. I’d love to see you and share our creations.
Hello, Dear Friends
I thought I would share with you today the card we made at our class this month. I wanted to consolidate our lesson on making roses. Last month we made large, medium and small roses. This month I wanted to concentrate on making rose buds – little roses. The principles are the same but they are more fiddly. They are also very pretty. This is the card we made.
Isn’t it delightful!? I used one of the little owls from the Sugar Hollow Collection. The tree is also from the same collection – except I turned it into a rose tree! I also took the opportunity to demonstrate using some border dies. On this card I have used dies from the Classic Border Basic Dies and Delicate Border Basic Dies. These two sets (14 dies in all) are made to go together so many, many different edges can be displayed.
I wish you could see just how sparkly this card is! The white edge is covered in Crystal Clear (a type of glitter) as are the roses.
Here is another card I made to show off the baby roses.
I will save the other card I have until next time!
Lovely to see you again!
Hugs Jenny xo
Yesterday, somehow, I lost half of my post! Gremlins at work again!! here are the rest of the photos of James’s 1st Birthday card – and I hope they don’t get lost in cyber space this time!
So… the first photo is of the front of the card, second is the insert, third is the back of the card and the last one is the card in its acetate envelope/box.
He had SO many presents! – and was a very tired little boy at the end of the day?
Hi, Everyone! Have you missed me?
Today I want to share with you two lots of cards. The first one from our is our last class.
We have another class this Thursday and Friday. Please let me know if you would like to come. I know that you will REALLY love this card!
Veronica made a video of the card we made last month.It was really great! Here is a photo of the card. I was teaching everyone how to make Roses. I made a selection of roses in 6 or 7 different colours so each person could choose the colour they wanted their rose to be. They looked so pretty! I had made the background in a neutral colour so that it didn’t matter which colour they chose, it matched the background perfectly!
So we make roses again this month to consolidate!
I have also been kept busy making my special James’s 1st Birthday card. He had a Jungle themed birthday so it was easy to choose which Heartfelt Creations Collection to use – “Monkeying Around”! I made a card with a shadow box attached and also decorated the Acetate box envelope to fit it in.
Just thought I’d pop in and show you what I’ve been up to!
First of all, I finally managed to get the photos of my son’s birthday card (via his girls!).
I used the “Monkeying Around Collection” with the Layered Circles card, so it’s a very 3D card! The first page has the smallest circle and each circle grows a little larger over the next three pages. The back page, of course doesn’t have a circle cut-out.
From the front page you can see that small circle section of each of the following four pages. Each page was covered in some of the background paper from the Paper Collection. – then the fun of developing each page began!! I think I used every stamp and die in the collection. Have a look! (I’ll put them in order from the front page to the back cover.)
Did you enjoy looking through David’s book? He enjoyed it. – but then wanted to know if there was a hidden message!
That’s all for today, but I told you I had been busy so there’s more to come.
