Welcome everyone! Today is the second Wednesday of the month which means that we have a brand new Heartfelt Creations Release!
Imagine a pristinely decorated, old fashioned parlor filled with charming antiques, vintage wallpaper and the finest assembling of handsome rose patterned china offering up delectable treats and deliciously fragrant tea! Amidst the refreshments, and scattered throughout the quarters you are drawn to lavish rose bouquets in every color imaginable, plucked from the pristine rose garden just outside the elegantly draped garden doors. As you glance around it is clear that this exquisite sitting room has been adorned for a very special occasion! Heartfelt Creations invites you to sit, relax and indulge as they unveil the new Blushing Rose Collection! Soft in hues and striking in patterns, this newest rose themed release will have you reminiscing of old fine bone china, lace tablecloths, and elegantly wallpapered sitting rooms. Delicate images of swirling roses, fluttering butterflies and vintage scripted postcards nestled among old fashioned wallpaper like stripes, beautiful brocades and decorative lace accents have been gently set against calming tones of pale yellows, mixed blends of greenish blues, and soft lilacs. The delicate, illustrations of rose clusters and single stemmed roses found within the cling stamp sets will bring back memories of the ravishing patterns on Grandma’s finest tableware that were kept behind glass and only made an appearance for the grandest of occasions. Paired together with the coordinating stamps, the ornate dies in this collection will allow you to create enamoring rose motif die cuts perfect for all of your paper crafting needs. A large focal background stamp, along with a full assembling of all occasion sentiments are the perfect window dressings to complete your soft and romantic vintage style rose themed creations. We invite you to enjoy the finest in paper crafting as we present the Blushing Rose Collection!

This new release complements the Classic Rose Collection that released last month beautifully! I created this layout using pictures of the iconic castle at Disney World using the yellows and purples in this collection.
Here are some close ups of my layout:
Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Trim a piece of pattern paper from the Blushing Rose Paper Collection to 11.5"x11.5" and distress the edges with Tim Holtz distressor. Ink the edges with Vintage Photo and adhere over a coordinating pattern paper from the same collection. Tuck in a few pieces of lace randomly between the layers so that it shows just a little bit. Trim a 6"x6" pattern paper and distress the edges and ink them. Add them to the right side of the background and add two 4"x3" photos over it. Die cut a border from the Regal Borders and Pockets Die and tuck in under photo. Add pre-printed sentiment over the photos and border die. Stamp and color using the Colorbox Petal Point Chalk Ink in fuchsia some roses from the Classic Rose Cling Stamp Set and vines from the Blushing Rose Stem Cling Stamp Set and Blushing Rose Swirls Cling Stamp Set. Color the leaves with the Forest Moss distress ink. Add glitter to the flowers and set aside to dry. Once dry, add to to layout around the photos and around the top and bottom side of the layout. Tuck in a few pre-printed square bloom tags and a handmade Magical title label. Add a few butterflies from the Butterfly Medley Cling Stamp Set. Finish the layout by adding some Want 2 Scrap pearls to the roses' centers as well as the butterflies and sentiment tag.
