christmas greetings *Heartfelt Creations*

Welcome to my post for the


Alumni Blog Hop!

Be sure to leave a comment on all the participating blogs. One participant will be chosen to receive a $25 Gift Certificate. Be sure the check the Winner Announcement on Sat, Jan 2nd. If you win, send an email to Emma Lou and write "winner of the December Alumni Hop" in the subject line.

Hop ends on Friday, Jan 1st at midnight.

The layout for this card was inspired by Claudia Rosa. It's been so long since I've seen the card on her blog, I don't know which post it was exactly... Papers are from Frosty Blanket by Heartfelt Creations and the green snowflake paper is SEI. The image stamp is from Holiday Haven and the sentiment is from Yuletide Sentiments. Unfortunately, these items are all retired... Looks I need to do some shopping and update my stash! The snowflake border punch is by Fiskars.

I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and tried to keep it simple. After cutting it with Spellbinders dies, I inked the edges with blue distress ink. I used Vintage Photo distress ink on the edges of the sentiment and topped with Diamond Stickles.

Thanks for stopping by!

go on an adventure

I used my September Kit from Citrus and followed this sketch.

I always love Citrus Twist stamps! My friend and I really enjoyed this break away from jobs and city life.

A mix of puffy stickers, Thickers, die cuts, and printables. And tape and paper.

Thanks for stopping by!

wonder on the bayou

I started with a sketch from Citrus Twist. I flipped it, scattered three photos, added the corner detail, and then I don't know what happened hahaha!

I just love the Crate Paper die cuts! They're thick, high quality, and super adorable. The kit also includes a sheet of printed digi pieces for cutting. That's where "looking for...." came from. Love the Thickers in the kits! And everything else.

Another adorable Crate Paper die cut.

I don't usually care to use these trendy acetate pieces. However, I really liked these triangles with abstract prints. They added some jazz to the background.

And journaling the best part of my day :)

Thanks for stopping by!
