Creative Crop Club - Heartfelt Creations

I held my first Creative Crop Class last Saturday & the ladies were very happy with their creations, I featured the Heartstrings theme.  They created a double page spread & 4 cards with plenty left over for more.

The Gold Bundle included a Workshop on the Go kit, Complements Pack, a Sponge Dauber, their choice of either a Stamp Pad or Shin Han marker, Cricut cutouts, the class fee & Instructions plus they also qualified for the Stamp of the Month.
For the double page spread I used Cranberry (1272), Lagoon (X5762), Whisper (X5929), Hollyhock (1246) & White (1385) cardstocks. For the braiding & newspaper print background I used the B&T papers in the Heartstrings paper pack (X7193B).  The roses, journal box & other embellishments come from the Heartstrings Complements Pack (X7193C).  The big red heart was cut on the Cricut using the Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686), I just love using my Cricut machine it makes everything so much easier& the possibilities are endless, you just need your imagination.





I found the idea for these 2 cards on page 8 of the Seasonal Expressions Ideas book using the Heartstrings Workshop on the Go kit & the Heartstrings Complements.    I change them around a bit & instead of making them Valentines cards I used  the February Stamp of the Month "A Happy Hello".   For the Hello card with the heart on it I masked part of the stamp so only the words Hello showed.  The arrow was cut the make it look like it was piercing the heart & the roses I stamped & then fussy cut around them to add some dimension to the card.  The little glittery hearts are from the Stuck on You Puffies (Z3037).



I just love being part of a larger family with Close To My Heart, there are so many talented women who share their ideas & give inspiration for creativity.   These 2 cards were a combination of cards I saw & added my spin to them.
The braided card was made using the Heartstrings Paper pack (X7193B), February Stamp of the Month, Stuck on You Puffies (Z3037) &  Pixie Extra Thick Twine (Z3035).

The Hugs card was made using Cranberry (1272), Whisper (X5929), White (1385) & Black (1386) Cardstock, Cranberry (Z2116) , Whisper (Z2172) & Black (Z2105) Exclusive Ink Pad.  I stamped the small roses with the cranberry ink using the 2nc & 3rd generation technique & masking the heart so not to go outside it with the flowers.   The silver hearts are from the Stuck on You Puffies (Z3037) embellishments & finished it off with a black ribbon bow.
