One person will receive the stamp of their choice from the Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia range and a Memory Box/Open Studio/Distressed Holiday Collage die.
There will also be a runner-up who will receive a stamp of their choice from the Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia range.
So for this blog we were asked to use the Memory Box holiday collage and anything from the Heartfelt poinsettia collection, I have chosen the sparkling poinsettia swirl, and both of these are used on all of my makes.

 Here is my scrapbook page

heartfelt creations sparkling poinsettia

I have chosen a gray 12 x 12 paper and used distressed inks to colour the background.

Then I stamped the Sparkling Poinsettia swirl around the edges and heat embossed it, then coloured it with distress inks. Then using the Distress Holiday Collage, I have cut out the strip of baubles and used them to add texture.

I then stamped the sentiment from the set and heat embossed it in white.

I have stamped onto acetate and heat embossed the leaves in black, then cut my flowers out a few times to layer up.

I decided to make this quick little box as Christmas table favours, or could also be used a just a place setting.

  1. Morning Kerry, a lovely variety of examples using the Heartfelt and Memory Box new range, and truly beautiful they are too, I love the bottle – well we have to use the empties up some how hehe!! – and the little favour box can be so useful especially for lot of little fingers at Christmas time, what about an advent section of little boxes, that would look good don’t you think, hark at me trying to tell you what to do, what a disaster that would be, it was just an idea though. The card is beautiful, the papers are lovely and I really like the Memory box dies, well you know what I am like for my dies don’t you. I have seen so many cards and creations made from just one of these dies, it is so versatile, a must have for any crafter.

    Enjoy Sunday, stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx


  2. Hi Kerry – what a great collection of projects, and they really showcase how versatile the products are in a wide range of colour tones. I really like the scrapbook page and those little boxes are just lovely. Thanks, Susan x


  3. I don’t do scrapbooking – but your page makes me want to have a go – love the background colours -and that box is a great idea for a Xmas table – especially for the kids.


  4. Hi Kerry, I’m loving your creations here, the Christmas card is stunning, I love all the subtle stamping and inking, it gives an ‘atmospheric’ feel, truly gorgeous, and the boxes and bottle are equally gorgeous, thank you for sharing with us.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx


  5. Hi Kerry, You have been a busy bee and what fantastic projects you’ve created. I really like the bottle probably because it’s my favourite shade of blue and the gift box is really sweet. Thanks for sharing. Jeanette xx
