New FB Challenge!!

Hello, everyone!  We are having a FB Challenge going on right now!  You need to be a member to join in the fun.  Here is the link: Createful Heart Design FB Challenge

Alright, to start off with I was asked to be Guest Designer for this month's challenge.  And I am honored.  Thank you, Miss. Robyn for asking me. :) 
This is what I have created for this month.  I am using the image: Paige,  I decided to make a tag.  She was a lot of fun to design and to color in... I used Prisma coloring pencils in shades of browns and wine.  To give her outfit an Autumn look.


Here is a closer look.

The designer paper for the background was given to me, by a friend.  Thank you!  
The flat lace, and little flourish of flowers at the top are from Cindy's Laces.  If you've never tried her laces you should. They are pretty awesome!  
The other embellishments are from my stash.  That's pretty much it for this post..
We sure do hope that you will stop by and join in with our FB Challenge!!  We host them monthly!!

Happy Crafting!!

Now on Pinterest!

Hello, everyone!   I just started a board on Pinterest.  Which I should have started long ago....  here is the link... Createful Heart Design.  I tried adding the button they provide...but I'm not tech savvy.    Yes, way down at the bottom left side of this blog you'll find a button but not the one I wanted to add.  :)  

I have many new designs that I have added to the board, and will be adding more in the days ahead.   So, be on the look out for those.  ;)    I have been loving the Flamingos!   I hope you'll check out the link... 

Happy Crafting!

Christmas Bell

Hello!  Just wanted to tell you about my new digital image, "Christmas Bell"  she is a really cute flamingo that is all ready for the holidays!    I used Prismacolor pencils to color her in, and for the background decided to go with Distress Oxide in Twisted Citron, and Salty Ocean.   The photo doesn't show the sparkles added to her santa hat...but its there!  



Thank you for coming by, while you're here leave a message.
Have a great day!

Mary ♥

Here's Christmas Bell made up into a card. :)

Going Back in Time Magnets

Hello!    here is a project that I made using some materials from my Zibbet shop.  These are cards for junk journals, but since I don't make those kinds of journals, I decided to use them for magnets.  I thought they turned out nice.   See what you think.   



Below you will find a sampling of these junk journal cards that I have designed to use in your projects.  And when you make a purchase from my Createful Heart Design Shop, you'll receive them for free, if you would like them!   



Here are the two I used in my project for the magnets!




Did I forget to mention you'll get the set for Free?



And the "card" below was designed to be used for notes or shopping lists..etc!

So, there you have it!  I hope you'll come by the Store today!!  

Thank You for coming by today, please leave a comment. :)

Be Aware!!

There is a suspicious email going out to people who use PayPal services.   Please be aware of this.   Don't do like I did. Without thinking about it, I opened my email.  I didn't think that it wasn't official.  Until the links that were imbedded in the email didn't work, that's when I realized something wasn't right.   Upon finding this I went immediately to PayPal to change my password.  And to speak with a Rep. They assured me that everything was okay with my acct.  Then just for safety measures I checked in with my bank, to tell them about this phishing email.  They also informed me that my acct., was safe.    I did feel better with all the information they gave me.     Now that I am more aware of such emails I check often with my bank and PayPal, just to make sure everything is okay!  
And if you do happen to receive creepy emails, having to do with your account,  just forward the entire email to: spoof@paypal.com  and they will take care of it.

Schuler, 1970's Style!

Hi everyone, I would like to take this time to introduce my new image, her name is Schuler - 1970's style for sure!   Who doesn't remember those long skirts, and hey, those maxie skirts and dresses are back in style... I wonder what's next.. bell bottom jeans?   Store's may already carry those... Ah well, getting back to Schuler, she is rockin' it with the long skirt, colored in with Pearlescent Watercolors, (sorry, the sample provided just doesn't do it justice).  The rest of the coloring is done with Prisma Color Pencils.  Love these pencils!!  I can't say enough.. once thought I didn't know the right way to color... but with these... WOWSERS!!   Need I say more?!!     I just made something very simple,  love the vintage look too.   She is available in my Zibbet Shop! 

Thanks for coming by my blog, be sure to leave a comment! 


Have a great day!

Introducing my New Image!

I wanted to introduce all our blog followers, to my new image: "Sarah Jane"  she is just so cute posing in this photo.  I created this to look like a photograph you might find in the early 1900's.   I have yet, to work up a card using this cute image... but wanted to share it with you.  I hope you'll come to my shop and see what other images my husband and I have created.  
https://www.zibbet.com/createful-heart-design/sarah-jane-digital-stamp



This Distressing Tool by Tim Holtz would give this image that vintage worn look.. 

Something Exciting Coming!!!

Starting July 15th we will be announcing 2 Winners instead of 1...  on our FB Challenge Group..  more chances to win is always a good thing!!     I am in the process of making up new badges, so you'll be wanting to display these on your blog pages.. And who doesn't like to display a badge to say that they have won?!    Also, starting on July 15th, we will no longer be offering a "free" image to go with the FB Sketches.  I will be offering, free images within the album pages.   So, you'll need to go there to find an image, or if you don't find one there..  you may go to my shop on Zibbet to get something to use!   I often get questions on whether or not you can use an image that you have purchased from Createful Heart Design, say at an earlier time... or maybe you "won" an image... by all means, if you have either purchased an image through my shop, or have won an image... you are more than welcome to use this in your FB Sketch creation.   Just to make sure that it is through Createful Heart Design, ONLY.   I do not allow for another type of creation from another digi company to be used in our FB Sketch Challenges.  Please be sure to use something from Createful Heart Design.

I just wanted to say, that after careful thought, I made a choice to close my etsy shop.  Today it was made final to close those doors.

However, I am proud to announce my new Shop over at Zibbet.

I hope that you will visit my new shop soon!  As I have kept many favorite images, and have added in new ones too!!

For those that would like me to Sponsor your challenges, please leave an email to: createfulhearts@yahoo.com  or you may contact me via the zibbet shop.

I know that this is a transitional time,.. it was not an easy decision to make, but it had to be made.  And I hope that you all will come to see this wonderful new shop.

Thank you.
Hugs,

Mary

Please READ

Our Blog Challenges are set up for our followers in hopes of winning, and who doesn't like showing off their creative works?!   We have seen some pretty awesome cards and projects from you all!!    

Sometimes, I find that someone enters a card, in hopes to find new customers. If you are that person, that thinks you can get by with soliciting on our Inlinkz...think again.  Your entry will be DELETED.  

First off, I will say this is not fair to others.  And its not fair to our Design Team Members.  They work hard to create their projects in hopes to inspire others to enter our Blog Challenges.    

There are plenty of places on the world wide web that offers a place in which to advertise.    

Please be KIND and do not advertise your store on mine, (blog challenge).   

Thank you.  The Admin Team of Createful Heart Design
