Pampered Pooch Release Day!




First and foremost, I need to apologize for opening my blog post late today. I worked the election polls yesterday, 15 1/2 hours, oh what a long day! Anyway I was so tired last night I forgot to post, oh I think I'm in a pickle now honeys!!! Now on to the business at hand.
For all you dog lovers out there, myself included, this is the Heartfelt Creations Release for you. It's called Pampered Pooch and you're gonna love it! A few weeks back HC released an addition to the Flip Fold line named "E" and "F" and I decide to use the Pocket and Flipfold Inserts E-Kraft and create a mini scrapbook of my beloved little Pixie, who turned 8 years old on Oct. 8th. Without my spoiled little girl I think there might be some lonely days for me. But I have that happy little face to great me each and every morning and when I return from being out and about I know she will be there to greet me with her " Oh I missed you so much" little dance!

Open to the waterfall flip page, there are four in this insert, and I have a picture for each as You would flip them open. Perfect for a small album, for a unique greeting card.

I hope you enjoyed my project and a glimpse of my fur baby. : )

Heartfelt With Love as You Recover




Hello bloggers. What a gorgeous day it wad here in the north west. have you ever wondered why Wisconsin is called "north west"? Maybe because it is north and west of the great lakes? I'll have to do some research on that one! today is the last Heartfelt Creations post using the Blushing Rose Collection. This stamp is called Rose Stem, and it contains the large and small bud stamp so I turned it into a bouquet. I hope you enjoy it. Remember you can find complete instructions on how I achieved this on the HC Blog.


I remember when I worked at the flower shop and we would get in these roses, called 'Sterling Silver" and I still remember the scent of them. I was the best of all the rose I think, umm heavenly!

Thanks for stopping in today and stay tuned for next weeks new release!

Hugs, Maureen

A Heartfelt Creation with Creative Embellishments




H bloggers! Hope you are having a great week so far. Things here in the mid-west are winding down. The days are shorter and the nights are a bit colder as we inch closer to the dreaded "W" word. Oh I am so NOT ready for it, and I mean that literally! I am hanging on to fall as long as I can. My project today, made with Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose and Blushing Rose collections is rich in fall colors and I have added these great embellishments from Creative Embellishments! I used the chipboard word and wooden fall leaves for my project. You can head over to their blog to some beautiful layouts , card, and altered projects. I think they have one of the very best collections of chipboard and wood laser cut embellishments I have ever seen. The intricate detail in the pieces is spectacular!! The prices are great as well, oh and I almost forgot, they are having a Design Team Call right now which closes on Nov. 14th. Check it out girls and guys. I say, jump right in and get you feet wet! Enjoy!


Remember to head over to the Heartfelt Creations Blog for complete instructions for my window, and check out all the lovely pieces accented with this great companies pieces.
Thanks for stopping in today.

Heartfelt Clean and Simple




Hello bloggers. I am trying my hand at clean and simple this week. I have never been very good at it, but every now and again I give it a try. I thought the Blushing Rose Collection image called 
Blushing Rose Swirls was so pretty I didn't want to take away from it.  I colored it with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, what a zinger of a name, huh! They are wonderful to work with and there are quite a few tutorials out there for them. I am loving them so far! I stamped the image with Versamark and used white embossing powder. Something new for me with water coloring and I think the look is fantastic.


I hope you enjoyed my card today and you can find complete instructions on the
 Heartfelt Creations Blog, along with tons of inspiration from my teammates.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Hugs, Maureen
