Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and Swirlydoos Blog Hop Preview!!

Welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!! I have been going through my collections and decided to mix it up a little. Between the stamps and dies, the combinations are endless! The collections are absolutely beautiful!! And they keep growing. Next week Heartfelt Creations will preview a brand new collection. The Decorative Basket Collection..Imagine filling your baskets with existing Heartfelt Creations flowers!! Go visit the HC Blog to see more inspiration from the designers and a sneak preview of the Decorative Basket Collection.

This special post also reveals a SNEAK PEEK layout done with Swirlydoos new August kit. It will preview on the 5th, just 2 more days. And it will be a Swirlydoos Blog Hop with a fantastic prize!! The papers, embellies and add on kits will blow you away this week. The blog hop is a lot of fun and will take you through each Swirlydoos designers blog to reveal their creations with the August kit. So be sure to check back on the 5th for a gorgeous reveal and the HOP!

I have the wonderful luxury of pairing Swirlydoos Kits with my Heartfelt Creations Stamps and dies, and for me, it is a match made in Heaven!! I may have to arrange something with these 2 fantastic Companies. I think a collaborative get together would be wonderful!!!

I love the look of script on flowers, so I used my favorite Sizzix Tim Holtz tattered Florals die and stamped the Vintage Life script stamp on the layered flowers. I also mixed up the leaves which make a beautiful fill in for your flowers.
I used my favorite butterflies. You can find files for many butterflies HERE.

The title was done with Tattered Angels Chip board from a previous Swirlydoos kit. Instruction about the layout are below. The lacy frame was done with Heartfelt Creations Dies in 2 different sizes, Small and large. I just alternated them around the page. They fir perfectly with the design of the paper.
