Craftwork Sunday.

Hi Eveyone in blogland.

I realise its been a while since my last blog ... ooo am I  confessing my sins lol    oh well ha ha maybe here a while... well it has been an event full month as you may know I started a new job and now I am on my 5th week , had first pay day and am doing well.

I also had a small Operation on my silly ligament and had lots of steroid pumped into it so I am hoping that will make it feel a bit better for walking on it. Not as yet convinced as had several before.

I have had a shuffle about with my design teams and I am now no longer designing for  Die'sire with Crafter's companion  and will miss the girls immensely but will keep in touch with them of course. I am half way through my time with Memorymaze Australia now and have almost completed my first month with Heartfelt Creations US  plus  I will be with Craftwork cards like a limpet on the rocks under the sea haha.. for as long as they will have me. I am of course looking for more things to do if anyone has something coming up. I also hope to have some other news very soon  so for today I will how the cards I made for   Craftwork Cards this month

 The stunning new Tea Dance Collection.

 A view inside this Tent card to show how pretty is finishes a card to decorate the inside to match.

This is a good shot cos you can pick up the Micro beads used over the Paper from the Tea Dance pad.
I love this so much i think I may micro bead anything that stands still or cover it in UTEE from my melt pot both techniques I am currently rocking to death lol..


I used their gorgeous new frames with some of the Tea Dance paper here and lots of Candi crushed in the flower too.
And lastly ..
They have some special goody boxes and I was lucky enough to receive all three and this one had mannequins in it so here was my little pink vintage version, just look at the little shoes...

Lots of glitter sparkle lacquer on this... I made the little cotton reel
with 2 pieces of Candi and some seem binding in a role with the cord wrapped
around, cool hey...
Anyway tomorrow will have a new post and I will show what I have been doing for Heartfelt Creations so far..

What have you al been up to this Bank holiday weekend so far?

love always

Sun Kissed fleur.

Hi lovely crafters.

Well haven't we been lucky with the sunshine this week here in England, gosh you could have been fooled into thinking we do actually get a summer lol....
well spring ... well warm day or two. hmmm 

Anyway did everyone had a fab bank holiday then ?

I am settling into a new job after leaving the one I was in for 12 years and I am doing fine. I certainly have a lot more crafty time and no longer working on my Saturdays which is aways going to be a good thing.
This week I shared with you my fabulous news regarding The Heartfelt Creations DT so today was the launch of their newest collection called Sun kissed Fleur and I was lucky enough to receive the entire pack last week so today I would like to link and share with you the first card I made for them.
This collection was so easy to work with and the flowers all cut out from one die , so you can make 10 flowers in one pass through the machine, plus you can stamp all 10 before you cut them out so the possibilities are endless.

Lots of distressing and just look at the papers. 
Emma Lou has put some really inspiring videos on to The Heartfelt blog and 
I would love to see some of your comments on it as you have up to the 14th of this month to add your comment before someone wins this entire new collection worth over $180. How generous hey...
So have a great Thursday tomorrow and it is nearly the weekend with our short week following the Bank holiday .. what do you plan on doing  with your weekend and who will be crafting?
love as always my crafty friends

Heartfelt wishes and Vintage Bunting.

Good Evening everyone, well should say goodnight but then that would be rude as I just got here haha, but the fact is its 20 mins to 2a.m and I just now thought to come on and share the news before sleeping...

Of course you all know I got to the Semi's for Heartfelt Creations in America and I would find out ( or you would) around the first of May....

Well I had a wonderful surprise last week from The very Gracious Emma Lou Beechy who is Heartfelt Creative directer congratulating me for becoming, along with lots of other gorgeous and talented ladies one of the newest designers and I am so so so so very pleased I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I feel right now.

Well after a huge hiccough with FED-EX leaving my DT package with a neighbour on Monday and not informing me at all (tut) I received it tonight and OMG ( I never thought I would say that ) but Oh My Goodness... I felt like the luckiest soul alive , how incredibly generous and amazing are the products, The paper is the most yummiest strokable stock ever.

The stamps are detailed and precut on foam and the dies Match and are just stunning. I cannot tell you how I have been laying here simply wanting to get started on my first project but... Tomorrow is work all day and then I have to play taxi to take my girl volunteering all evening and then work all day Friday which just leaves Friday night in readiness for Saturday's first post and I am so looking forward to it. I also received This months new releases which can be shown with every ones first items from Saturday so I will do some links and items then for you all.

I am also finishing off a little something I am making for the lovely girls at Stamps addicts in the hope of designing for them as I did some bits for them a while ago. So wish me luck.
I may have some Magazine news coming up too but can't share that just yet but I will as soon as.

I'd like to say welcome to all my new followers to the blog, welcome and crafty hugs. If there is anything anyone would like to see or any techniques wanting to learn come an let me know and I will put a tutorial on here for you...

I was thinking of dedicating a day a week to teach a particular item.. like Tutorial Tuesday or wanna see Wednesday or something... is that Corny...? what do you think? Sound good?

Right well I can appreciate that was a lot without any pics so I thought I would add my pics of The Vintage Bunting I made for Craftwork cards recently  which I absolutely loved doing for them, If your a fan of their gorgeousness you will be excited to see some website changes next week and some beautiful new goodies that I for one cannot wait to play with.

Hope you like. Leave me a comment and I will definitely answer and appreciate every single one.

And here's some close up's. It says CREATE ART

And then I decided on a little inspiration.
 OK lovelies I will apologise for the wonky pics but at least you get to see the Yummy Vintagey ness
hmmm. It was all made using a fabulous Vintage shabby chiq pad which contained the beautiful colours in the paper I used here with a various amount of techniques thrown in, Stamping, 2nd generation stamping, Kiss stamping, embossing , Non heated and heated. I used Lord Tim's distress throughout of course and lots of Yummy Craftwork cards stamps which are all on their website so why not pop in and have a look and also Congrats to all the lovely ladies who made it like me to the Wonderful Heartfelt Design team too. 

Lots of crafty hugs
