Embellishment Free

Here I am back with another project for our Heart to Heart Challenge blog.  This week we are featuring projects that use no embellishments.  Sounds easy - right?  I found this a little more challenging than I thought.  How many times did I reach for some ribbon or bling to add to the layout?  More than I'd like to admit!
I definitely had to get creative! So instead of ribbon or bakers twine (which was my original thought) for the tag ties I cut a very thin piece of paper and tied it in to the tags.  And for bling, I used a few different sized hole punches to punch circles out of some scrap B&T paper, then covered them with some Liquid Glass to resemble pearls.  

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to share your embellishment free creations with us at Heart to Heart Challenges!

Heartfelt Sentiments Paper Focus-November

Welcome to another month of the Heartfelt Sentiments Team Paper Focus Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on Snowhaven.  If you are coming from Melissa's blog then you are on the right track!  Be sure to visit all the blogs for some great inspiration for this paper packet.
As I'm sure you've seen from past posts, this is one of my favorite paper packets in the Annual Inspiration Book.  It has so many uses other than winter/cold/snow photos.  This is layout captures a quick photo I took of my daughter and granddaughter one afternoon. The title from the compliments set went perfectly with the photo.  I added some hand made flowers - the black two are made from gathered tull and the red is paper inked up with some black ink.  The tiny flowers are paper stamped with one of the dotted background stamp then punched from a punch I spied at the retreat I was at last weekend.  Add some blingy swirls and it's done!  After I was done I realized I hadn't distressed one bit of this layout and that it really isn't my style, but I enjoyed creating it...hmmm maybe my style is changing?
Thanks for stopping by.  Now hop on over to Sheila's blog to see what she has created for your inspiration!

Pathfinding-Heartfelt Sentiments Paper Focus

Welcome to another month of the Heartfelt Sentiments Paper Focus Blog Hop.  This month we are featuring the Pathfinding Packet as shown on page 47 of the new Ideabook. If you are coming from Melissa D's blog you are on the right path.

I like the color combinations of this paper packet, the blue add's just the right brightness to the fall toned greens and browns.  For my layout, I incorporated several of the zip strips from the papers as well as multiple cuts from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  For bling I added some Base and Bling Dream Charms and Brown and Tan Sparkles.  The stamping is done with several retired stamp sets.

Thanks for stopping by.  Now hop on over to Sheila's blog and see what she's created for your inspiration.  You can find all the supplies to replicate this layout here.
