Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

A very good morning to you all. I hope you are all well.
Today I am sharing a scrapbook layout with you using the beautiful Season of Joy Collection which was released last week over on the Heartfelt Creations Blog.

 Demonstration Day at Sir Stampalot Peterborough

Before I share my layout with you I would like to invite you all to Sir Stampalot in Peterborough Cambridgeshire.  They are holding a free demonstration day!!!! and I will be demonstrating the wonderful Heartfelt Creations products:) and also of course some beautiful products from The Hobby House!
 Over the next few days I will share with you a few of the creations that I will be making.....these will include: a card with matching gift box,  a criss sross card with decorative tag, also some different ways that you can use your Sun kissed fleur die and co-ordinating stamps and lots of other hints and tips on how you can get the most from your Heartfelt Creation products.
I will be using some new products and also some older collections that you maybe haven't seen for a while.  It is going to be a fun filled day so I really hope that if you live nearby you will come and join me:) It will be to meet you! For more information hop on over to Sir Stampalot  HERE

Heat embossing gun,  Grand  Calibur.

For my layout I have chosen the rich plum coloured paper with the door and wreath.  Start by using the grunge paste,  stencil the dots towards the left of your paper. Leave this to one side and allow too dry.
Cut out your image and layer onto a die cut of the Decorative Labels Twenty-Two using foam pads.
Stamp the sentiment with the plum Archival ink onto cream card and die cut out with the petite scalloped circles. Die cut another petite circle in cream card the next size up. Die cut a stately circle so that the petite circle sits just inside the scallops of the stately circle. Layer them up using foam pads on the sentiment.  Cut out one of the plain panels from the Frosty Blanket papers and stamp the Joy sentiment onto it. Die cut 3 small snowflakes and 3 larger ones. Stamp, heat emboss and die cut the Poinsettia flower set (you only need 2 larger ones, but you can use the others on another project). Die cut 2 of the flower banner/trees in olive green card. Stamp and die cut 2 large holly leaf swirls and 2 small holly leaf swirls. Cut a piece of cream card and write a little about your photo.  Use a little Distress Ink around your circle sentiment, ‘My First Snow’ and just a tiny bit on your snowflakes.
Now that you have everything cut out, stamped  and ready you can now begin to put your layout together.
Begin with the ribbon and lace. Decide where you need the trees to sit and adhere these in position.
Add the ‘Joy’ sentiment and then your image/Decorative Labels Twenty-Two.  Adhere the Circle sentiment with just a little tucked under the image layer. Adhere the holly leaf swirls and layer 2 larger poinsettias and adhere between the image and ‘Joy sentiment. Add the snowflakes as in picture.
Add tiny cream pearls to the snowflakes and black pearls to the centre of the poinsettia. Finish by adding some Snow Dust around your image/photo, around the edge of the ‘Joy sentiment, edges of your main paper and touches of it on to the poinsettia and holly swirls. Oh and add a little stickles too.
