Heartfelt Creations week 12/7/11

Good Morning and welcome to Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! This week Heartfelt Creations is joining Scrapmart in a blog hop! There are many prizes along the way!  Leave a comment on the Heartfelt Creations blog for your chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Heartfelt Creations. The winner will be announced on the Heartfelt Creations blog on December 13th.

In keeping with the spirit of the Christmas I have created this layout titled "Believe."
"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." -Norman Vincent Peale

This is a photo of my dd a couple of years ago. How time flies and I see the changes in her Christmas photos! I did a lot of embossing this week. The corners and the poinsettias were both embossed with a gold powder.
My flowers were created using the Open Petals Precut Set  from Heartfelt Creations. I absolutely love them!!!! The flower centers were created using a tiny flower punch and curling the petals inward and clustering them in the center of the flower.
I'm addicted to the new Artistic Gatefold Collection . LOVE the layered scalloped posy die above the photo.  If you have not grabbed these Leafy Swirl Stamps yet you will want to. Many of the limited editions sets are being retired at the end of the year!
