It is so very sad to see some of the very talented team move on, however when one door closes another one opens and I am sure they will all do well in whatever path they decide to follow. I wish them all the very best x I would like to also congratulate all the new semi finalists who made it on to the team. They are all so very talented and I am sure they will bring so much creativeness to the team:) To see who will be joining me over the next 6 months hop on over to the Heartfelt Creations blog. Also check out all of this weeks gorgeous creations!

I also hope to be able to share with you all soon some more exciting news, but until then here are 2 projects that I would like to share with you all:

Double Heart Wall Decoration

I have used the Sweet Juliet die to create these beautiful flowers:

Heartfelt Creations Products Used:
HCD 237 – Sweet Juliet Die
HCDPC 1  237 – Antiquity Paper Collection
HCPC 3535 – Sun Kissed Fleur Tags and Basket Pre Cut Set
Other Products Used:
2x MDF Hearts (one smaller than the other), Archival Ink – Plum, Stickles - Platinum, Cosmic Shimmer – White Ice, Pearls, Brads, Decorative Pearls, Pearls on string, Satin ribbon, Twine, Strong wet glue
Cover your 2 hearts in your chosen papers from the Antiquity Collection. Adhere the smaller one on top of the larger one adhering it just over the edge.  Die cut 2x small flowers and 2x large flowers and make them up, use a brad on each through the centre of each flower to hold them together. Add some glue to the flowers and sprinkle some of the Cosmic Shimmer White Ice.  Die cut out about 5x foliage from the Sweet Juliet die in some of the deep plum patterned paper.  Stamp the Sun Kissed tag stamp and fussy cut this out. Cut the ‘Believe sentiment from the paper collection.
Put all of these elements to one side.  Add the pearls on string to the outside of the hearts.  Adhere the ribbon from the back of the hearts so that about 3/4 of it is showing from the front.  (You a can either buy this readymade or you can pleat it yourself). Next adhere the tag at each end so that it forms a bridge over both the hearts and add the ‘Believe ‘sentiment.  Adhere the flowers and foliage, cutting the foliage up so that you can arrange them in a pleasing way and keeping 3x leaves to adhere to the sentiment with a fancy pearl in the centre.  Adhere some fancy pearls to the hearts as in picture. Turn the hearts over and adhere some twine on the back with a very strong adhesive so that you can hang the heart decoration. To finish add a little stickles glitter.

Make your card base – 5 ½” x 7 ¾” from cream card and adhere some dusky pink card to the front.  Layer your chosen paper onto a cream matt and adhere to the card  leaving about a ½” dusky pink border. Stamp the sentiment onto some cream card and diecut out using the Gold Magesty Circles die. Die cut another Magesty circle in the dusky pink card. Cut this in half and layer them under the cream one so that it gives a shadow effect. Where the gap is, adhere some olive green organza ribbon. Die cut the Decorative arch. Distress the edges of these with both Tea Dye and Milled Lavender.   Die cut the large Fanciful Lattice card creator and cut to give you 2 borders and distress with the distress inks.  Weave ribbon into the borders between the lattice.  Adhere the borders to both the top and bottom of the card. Adhere the Decoratice Arch upside down so that the tip just touches the bottom border and it sits in the centre. Adhere the Magesty Circle matt using 3d foam pads so that it sits over the Decorative Arch as in picture.
Die cut a selection of the Vintage Floret flowers using the small, medium small and medium size dies.  Stamp the flowers with the co-coordinating stamps and distress with the distress inks. Die cut 3x open leaves and stamp with the coordinating stamp.  Die cut about 6 foliage flourishes in pink card stock. Make up a selection of the flowers and adhere to the top left hand side of the Magesty Circle (keep a small one for later) along with some leaves and foliage flourishes. (Cut some of the leaves and flourishes in to smaller pieces.  Make a bow and adhere to the bottom right along with a foliage flourish (cut in half) and the fancy pearl pins. Adhere a small flower to the centre.
Add some pearls to the centre of the flowers and along the Lattice borders.  To finish add a little stickles glitter.
