Creative Embellishments/Heartfelt Creations team up!

I’m a huge fan of Heartfelt Creations’ products. I love their stamps and dies, but more than anything, I LOVE their gorgeous papers, so I was thrilled when I heard about the team up between two such amazing companies! I got to work with HFC’s Once Upon a Time Papersand Celebrate the Journey Papers. Since two other team members used Celebrate the Journey, I primarily used Once Upon a Time for my project along with a few scraps from other HFC papers I already had on hand. This is going to be photo heavy because it’s a paper bag mini album (my first!), using 3 full sized paper lunch bags.

For the cover, I also used these products by Creative Embellishments which I altered by using Smooch inks: Steampunk Timepiece from their 3 piece mini set, a Butterfly from their 3 piece set, Flourish 17 and Photo or Page Corners Set 2. Distressed edges on the papers are inked with Distress Ink and the trims are by Graphic 45 and My Mind’s Eye. I also used the other corner pieces from the set as holders for tags inside the album. :-D

We’re each sharing a project with our favorite CE product on it. The winner of the hop will be randomly selected and announced on Monday September 8th.

I LOVE Creative Embellishments’ product, so it was very hard to for to pick a favorite. Their laser cut chipboard is so intricate and lovely, their wood veneers are detailed and darling! Their newest product line, flair, are so awesome to work with and I can’t say enough about their laser etched rubber stamps. Those are awesome for mixed media projects. Since I couldn’t make myself pick a single favorite, I decided to go with two categories. Their frames and title pieces are definite MUST-HAVES!

With my pieces chosen, I decided to create an off the page project for you all today. I hope you like it! 😀
