Celebrate the Journey Winner  --  Posted: Wednesday, Apr 16 2014

Hi Everyone,

Do you love to travel abroad or around the block? Our latest collection will enable you to capture those moments and we are featuring many projects with the newly released Celebrate the Journey Collection. Which of the products in this collections are your favorite? If you haven't seen them yet...you're missing out, hop on over here and see the entire collection.

Blog Comment Winner: With every release, we have a blog giveaway of the new collection. Everyone that posted a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog since last Wednesday was eligible to win. The lucky winner is:  Kialaya Said... I love travel stamps and dies but these must be the most beautiful I have seen yet. I can imagine many projects to do with these. I hope so much I get lucky, I would love to have these since we don't get your dies here in Spain. Lovely cards by the way, I got much inspiration from them and will try to apply some things to mine.

Speaking of traveling, I just wrapped up airing this collection on Create and Craft TV over in London with design team member Nikki Payne. This has been my first time traveling to the UK, so it has been a wonderful experience. You can follow our Facebook page to see the recorded link of this show. Happy Creating! Emma Lou Beechy

HCPC 3597 Luggage and Sentiments PreCut Set
HCDP1 242 Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection
HCPC 3598 World Map PreCut Set

Project Instructions:

Other products: Aqua and brown card stock (CS), vintage photo distress ink, glue, hot glue gun, black Memento ink, ribbon, fasteners, corner embellishments, charm, bandage, crispy lace, chipboard, matchboxes

Instructions: This time I created a drawerbox/easelcard. There is not really a tutorial for it. You can create this in any way you like. I decided to use 2 large matchboxes and glued chipboard on the bottom and the top. That makes the box about 5.1" x 4.3" (13 cm x 11 cm) Before I added the chipboard I inked the edges first as usual :) For the "easel" I used the aqua cs 9.05" x 5.1" (23 cm x 13cm) and scored 2 folding lines at 2.55" and 2.36" (6,5 cm x 6 cm) Before glueing the easel base decorate it first with your favorite paper from the Celebrate the Journey Collection. Ink the edges. Then glue the large part from your easel at the top of your box. Cut a piece of design paper slightly smaller than your base to fit the top of your box. Ink the edges and glue. The suitcase was created with the wonderful Luggage and tags Die. I cut it 2 times, followed the scored lines and glued it so you have a half of a "box". Do this of course with both the dies you cut. From one of the dies I cut off the "belts" otherwise it will not fit nicely if you put both halves together. Of course I inked the suitcase first before adding them together, all I did was use a thin piece of bag paper to hold the bottom of the suitcase together. Then I glued the "belts" to the other half so the suitcase is "closed" do not forget to ink the suitcase first with the Luggage and Sentiments PreCut Set before putting it together. Now you can glue your suitcase at your box so you use it for your easel base to "hold". The sides from the box have also been decorated with the design paper, and so are the inside and outside of the drawers. For the knobs I used fasteners.

To create your card: Cut a piece of aqua cs 5.1" x 4.3" (13 cm x 11 cm) and ink the edges. Yeah I know I sound like an inkaholic. Cut another piece of brown cardstock 4.5" x 3.7" (11,5 cm x 9,5 cm), ink the edges. Cut a piece of design paper slightly smaller than your brown cardstock, ink the edges. Choose one of the nice die cuts from your paper (or the one I used) and ink the edges. Create a tag with the Luggage and tags Die, cut out one of the tags from the dp paper and make it fit to your tag die and ink the edges and finish with some organza ribbon.

Use the Luggage and tags Die for the small ticket and cut out one of the tickets from the dp paper. Now you can glue everything together, before adding your base card to your easel base, make sure you finish and decorate your card first, when finished glue it to your easel base. Decorate with some nice corners and a charm and dew drops et voila, you are done:)

Instructions: View larger project image here. To make the balloon take your desired template and cut it 8 times and fasten the pieces together allowing time for the glue to dry between the pieces. I scored the pieces to give the balloon a different look. Once your balloon is made I created a simple Octagon basket and then hung the basket using string. Now comes the fun. Time to decorate! I added a strip using one of the pre-made sentiments and then my flowers. The flowers were made by stamping, embossing and die cutting and distressing the Daisy Patch Flowers and finishing them off with some Spring Bling Prills in the center.

Project Instructions:

Other products: KaiserCraft Metal Tab, Distress Ink, Sponge Dauber, Pearls, Card Stock, X-acto tool, Foam tape, May Arts Silk Ribbon

Instructions: Cut a 6 x 6 decorative panel from the patterned paper. Using the Luggage/Tags Die cut out three tags from the patterened paper. Ink the edges with distress ink. On one of the tags, using an X-acto tool cut a square out of the center of the tag and ink the edges of the interior. Stamp sentiment on a piece of the lighter designer paper using vintage photo distress ink. Apply foam tape around the backside of the center cut out of the die and then adhere the sentiment in the window. Cut out the word Journey from the paper and using Dries Clear Glue adhere to the back of a metal drawer pull. Attach to the bottom of the windowed sentiment using foam tape. Stagger your three tags as shown and glue them with Zip Dry glue to the base of the card. Make a pretty bow with silk ribbon and glue to the top of your decorated tag. Stamp the three smallest vintage floret flowers on cardstock. I did 6 of the largest, 9 of the medium and 9 of the smallest.

Ink the centers of the stamped flowers with pink ink and brush the sponge dauber outward for shading. Cut the flowers out with coordinating die and Grand Caliber. Using your flower tools and mat curl and cup each petal of the flowers. On your center petal I flip it over upside down and make it so the stamped image is what is on the outside showing as you glue it into a tight center. Ink all the edges of the flowers with distress in. Layer your petals together with dries clear glue. Create 7 flowers. Always try to use odd numbers in your design work, as it is more interesting to the eye. Die cut out leaves from the Ornamental Add On die and using fine scissors snip the holly points off to make a regular shaped leaf. Use the flower tool tweezers and bend down the center of each leaf and then ink the edges. Arrange the flowers and the leaves on the card as shown and glue down with Dries Clear Glue. For the final touch add pearl to the holly berry/round dots of the leaf die. Mount your card on a plain 6 x 6 card stock base.

I prefer the type of cards that were made before. The style now are much too busy, too much going on to focus on the card. I know that your paper is a selling point, but using just cardstock on some of the designs would be appreciated.
