After the Expo

We had such a great time in Orlando last weekend at the Scrapbook Expo!  We stayed at the beautiful Gaylord Palms and enjoyed classes and shopping all weekend.

I took three classes from Heartfelt Creations, which may just be my new favorite!  In the first class, we worked with images embossed on vellum.  The delicate paper, once shaped, transformed into beautiful flowers.

The Heartfelt Creations collection Under the Sea is amazing and we made cards from this colorful collection in my second class.  Oh how I love these cards!  The port hole card is a shaker card.

In the third class, we made a flip album.  I especially loved this project because you can buy the album plain and decorate for any occasion.

Look closely at the picture of the cover.  I love how we added glitter to the flowers on the front cover–it pops!  With every class you took with Heartfelt, you got a coupon for a free stamp set.  Woo hooo!  I am looking forward to embellishing everything with paper flowers.

In my next post, I’ll show you some of my treasures I bought at the Expo.  I am going to have to clean out my craft room pretty soon and make room for new purchases!

The thought for the day–Being creative is not hobby, it is a way of life!
