I made it!!

Goodmorning everyone!

This morning held a VERY happy surprice! :) I made it! I'm now for 6 lovely months a Heartfelt Creations girl ;) I can't wait to start creating! This was posted this morning at the Heartfelt creations blog:

Thank you to each one of the talented semi-finalists. We would like to extend a warm welcome to 10 new design team finalists that will be joining the Heartfelt Creations design team for the next 6 months: Sarah Miller, Alissa Wells, Erika Selander, Emily Neihaus, Kathleen Rooney, Rachel Dluhy, Cynthia Llorens Renaud, Giovana Smith, Karin Zander, and Marisa Job.
Congrats Ladies! We look forward to working with you and taking the paper-crafting industry to new heights of inspiration. 

Yeijj!! I'm SO happy! Thanks to all of you who voted for me and a huge thanks to Emma Lou and all of you at Heartfelt Creations!
Here's the four layouts/cards I sent in for semi finals:

1. Card, "love you alot"

Just loved to make theese flowers and had to make a card with them as well.

Making the card I had inspiration from a recent post in out local newspaper about new movies coming up. I really enjoy going to the movies with my love or with friends. And this time I'll try to go with the love of my life and this card was sort of an invitation to him (even though he will only see the pictures ;) But I don't think he'll mind at all as long as we get to go to the movies)

The flowers are made of the lovely dies I got and since the color of the papers are so bright and happy I decided not to go over the edges with inks.

2. Layout, "life"

This layout is filled with memories. The picture is taken by my father of my mother before I was born and is one of his top four ever. I just love the colours in the picture and even though the sort of orange/brown colour is not one of my favorites for scrapping I felt that this pic was "the one".

The flowers are made out of the lovely Heartfelt creations dies and I've used two sets of stamps in th flowers creating different patterns.

The leafes are from the flowerdies too. Just cut into five pieces from a flowerdie, creating matching leafes.

The text "I Believe in you" is also from the stamping kit I got in my package :)

The Orange/pink flowers are made out of light cardstock paper and carefulle colored with distressinks in orange and pink to pick up the colours in the picture. Over that the stampset makes a lovely feeling of summer flowers in a brown tone also with Distress Inks.

3. Layout, "Precious baby girl"

This picture is one of our first of my newborn baby girl. After a long process of three days she finally came out and having us both survive was no shorter than a miracle. So this picture is more special to me than probably anyone can amagine. And thanks to a perfect team of doctors I now have two wonderful kids and get to enjoy life with them every sigle day. A precious thing for a mother and for our family.

The flowers in this layout is from the same set of 7 flowers schped in different ways to give life to the larger picture and added to them are small handmade roses, Tim Holtz metal, pearls, stickers and glossy accents from Ranger. The little clock up on the left tells the time of birth of my baby girl. And in top of the layout I've saved a small piece of the background paper spelling the word "beautiful". I love small "hidden" details and this is one of those small accent things in this layout.

4. Layout, "my future"

Just looking at this picture makes me smile. Springtime, laughing kids playing happily together.
Theese two are my world and my future. And spending time with my family is one of the greatest things in life.

For decorating this layout I have used the lovely Heartfelt Creations Stamps and have given them life by watercolors. I chose to use brown, pink and purple. Theese colours are spring to me. We have alot of blossoms here in spring/early summer and the kids enjoy finding all of the new colours in nature after a long and cold white winter.

All around the edges I have written the word "love" as a frame for this one.

I'm SO happy to have been chosen as one of the new team members! :)
And huge congrats to all of the girls joining the team!

Today is for sure a happy happy day!
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!
Hugs/ Karin.
