Heartfelt Creation’s Festive Holly Flip and Fold Album

Christmas is one of my favorite time of the year and Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection just beautiful.  I fell in love with it and used it to create my first Flip and Fold album. I picked 2 sets of inserts and studied the paper carefully until it spoke to me. This is the first pages with a pocket to hold cards or photos. There is another similar pocket on the back pages.

This is the cover with a fold down pocket. I cut the side flaps off of the pocket and closed it with a small velcro dot. I added  ribbon to keep the album closed once it is filled with Christmas memories.

Throughout the album I tried to utilize the scenes on the 12X12 papers. Here the forest scene opens up to additional space for photos along with a pocket in the flap.

Another set of pages with a flap the lifts up with space for memories on both sides.

Additional tiered pockets for journaling cards and photos.

I am looking ahead to my next album.


Creating with Heartfelt Creations Dogwood Flowers

I have been using the Heartfelt Creations Stamps, Dies and Papers since since January 2017. One of my favorite to work with are the Dogwoods because they are so versitle. Flowers can be created with one or more layers. They also are great when created with vellum.

Here I recycled a heart shaped tea box. I first covered the box with paper from the collection. I stamped, die cut and colored the flowers using Distress Inks in Shabby Shutters and Abandoned Coral. For the leaves I used Peeled Paint. I even inked the back of the flowers.

I rolled some of the petals around the stamens to create a few flower buds. I added the dove, with an extra wing for dimension. I added clear glitter to the flowers and the dove.

Here are a few other cards I created with the Dogwood Stamps and Dies. These were stamped with white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
