Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team October 2014 Blog Hop



Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team October 2014 Blog hop!! If you just came from the very talented Sarah Miller's Blog, then you're on the right track.
With Autumn making it's appearance in parts of the country, I can only live vicariously through pictures. Here in Florida, we have 4 seasons. Summer, summer, summer and ....summer.... I miss Autumn on Long Island where I grew up. The leaves, the colors, the crisp cool mornings...
I am fortunate to have met so many talented friends in this industry. Shannon James is one. Shannon and her mom, are a dynamic duo who own and operate Portraits by S & S, in Henryville, PA. 
They are one talented team. I remember seeing Shannon's scrapbook layouts, but specifically the photos she used. Shannon has graciously allowed me to use her photographs for my layouts. This is the first one I am using. It is a photo of her gorgeous daughter Delilah from her woodland fairy photo session. I am very excited to use this gorgeous photo coupled with BoBunny's Autumn Song paper collection, Lindys Stamp Gang sprays and of course Heartfelt Creations stamps. Oh my.... Autumn is here...

Lately I have been using lots of corrugated cardboard with my layouts. This time I wanted  a woodsy feel to compliment the photo. My cardboard technique was perfect.


I love using dimensional layers in my layouts. I place a few pieces of corrugated cardboard inbetween my layers to give them depth.





I used the Tattered Blossoms PreCut set to create my flowers.The matching Tattered Blossoms die is the perfect companion , making the flowers easy to create.


The leaves I created is a retired Heartfelt Creations  stamp that coordinates with the  Spellbinders Foliage die.  I used  some Kraft paper and rolled some spiral roses. Very easy for  fill in flower! This kept with my woody themed layout.


For the colors, I used all Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays... I will be revealing the 2014 Novembers Color challenge on November 1st!! Stay tuned!!!


Sweet Delilah is to gorgeous for words!!! Check out Portraits by S and S in Henryville Pennsylvania.
Thank you Shannon allowing me to showcase your work!!
