Heartfelt Creations' Magic of Love

 While sitting with a friend of mine..she said she was planning for a gift and a card for her hubby ,something where she could write down her feelings and every note should emerge as a beautiful surprize ...and something which could be hung in her room :) Since she and her hubby both are coffee addicts and spend their most special moments while sipping coffee... i thought i will make something that will make her came up with an idea to do  something with coffee theme along with the expression of love :)

I am here today sharing Tags in a Tag... :) Minimum  7 tags can be slipped inside the seperate pockets and sleeves...,maximum is up to u :) There is also a Slip In Journalling Notecard where you can write your  thoughts and wishes both in front and back side.

Instructions :

Take a Tag of  3.5 " by 8.5". Ink up the edges with Distress inks. Stencil it with the diecuts.

Choose 6"/6" Blazing Poppies Paper. Cut a straight mark on the pocket top edge to make the real pocket to slide a tag in it. Fold at 2.5 " with small part showing blue denim pocket in front and bigger part at the back of the Tag.Apply glue on the fold crease,on the top edges and bottom edges and adhere on the left edge of the tag. This will have side openings or a sleeve to slip in tags and notes both in front and back.

Die cut the Fleur Borders and Pockets and other dies,,ink them up with desired color effect of your choice,i used green and red.

Stamp the coffee mug,spoon,and latte image with Black Archival Ink,die cut and ink up with distress inks and watercolors. Make a slit at the opening of the coffee mug to insert spoon and latte heart in it.

Take another 6"/6" Blazing Poppies paper,place Regal Borders and Pockets Die on one edge of it and run through die cutting machine. Ink it up.

Die cut the Tags from Blazing Poppies and Raindrops on Roses Paper Collection with Lugguage and Tag Dies.Ink up the edges. Leave them blank for journalling.

Stamp and die cut the leaves and flowers and bird,color them with watercolors.

Stamp the letters on pre inked cardstock and cut them manually and stick over black cardstock. I cut them unevenly to give a little shabby look to it :)

Start placing as a rough layout first and once contented with your placement,start adhering according to your style.

Spell the Magic of Heartfelt Creations again and again :)

If Friends were Flowers..

Hi all...sharing here a tutorial of an altered MDF box i made using Heartfelt Creations Products...

A Keepsake Box

Heartfelt Creations Products Used :

Majestic Bloom Die HCD1-742
Classic Leaf Die HCD1-736
Classic Leaf Cling Stamp HCPC-3546
Bold Leaf Cling Stamp HCPC-3547
Cut Mat Create 2A Die HCD2-751

Other Products Used :

Color Box Fluid Chalk Inkpad - Warm Red
Prima Marketing Chalkboard Paint - Plum
Silicone Glue
Mod Podge
Half Pearl String Stickers
MDF ( Medium Density Fibreboard) Box


Make and shape flowers and leaves:

 On a plain 120 GSM offwhite paper paint with random brush strokes
 blending shades of pinks and pale yellow.Let it dry.

Use Majestic Bloom die to cut the flowers.On the edges of petals shade
 again with darker pink color to make flowers little bright and colorful.

Spritze some water on the flower cutouts and using Deluxe Mat use 
the stylus to shape the petals from reverse side. Turn it upside down and 
press with small stylus to raise and shape it from centre.Let it dry again.

Apply Silicone Glue on the top centre of colored flower,place some stamens over the glue ,
 press and fold the flower in quarter half.Once completely dry,
they become firm and stiff with proper shape.

Prepare single layered flowers of different sizes with same method.

Stamp and diecut the leaves also,paint them with green water color 
shades as well and shape up from reverse side to give dimension and shape.

Keep ready the flowers and leaves for arrangement over the lid of the box once everything is done.

Prepare the Box:

Color the box with Plum chalkboard paint giving it a blended matt matching
 effect in combination with the paper.Let it dry.

Choose the part of image from 12 by 12" paper. I chose a part with sentiments which 
would suit the space of the lid with a message over it.Adhere the paper with 
Mod Podge or white glue mixed with some water.

The design i chose for the lid,accordingly i cut and aligned different sizes 
and designs of paper adhereing in such a way so as to give it a look of a ribbon tied
 around the box with flowers as bow over it :)

Use a complimenting die suiting the overall design. I chose a Cut Mat Create 2A die 
to match it with the flourish design.
After die cutting it i distress inked it with matching shades of browns.

Adhere the circular line and the straight lines with half pearl strings.

Final Arrangement of flowers and leaves over the paper designed lid with silicone glue
...and your Heartfelt Creation is ready :),use it to keep your treasured memoirs,jewellery,
anything that u like or gift it to someone very special :)

Below are the detailed pics of the box with different angles and closeups..
