2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Quietfire Design's 2017 Queen of Hearts Blog Hop!

This week we're celebrating the release of the newest dies, stencils and stamps from Quietfire Design by sharing our best projects!
My project for the blog hop is a scrapbook page for our wedding album.  The page used the new die set "Sweet Smiles"
Sweet Smiles - Metal Cutting Dies
and Quietfire Design's "Together Forever" stamp
Together Forever 2017 - Mounted
The die set and stamp are a perfect pairing for the wedding's cake cutting photo.
Aren't the dies and stamp gorgeous?!  
The papers used are from Graphic 45's A Ladies' Diary set.
An ornate metal key and a heart doily were added to a corner. 
Black card stock was used for the dies.  Love how the dies pop against the paper!
The stamp is so lovely.  Suzanne's calligraphy is beautiful!

Mixed Media Graphic 45 "Amazing" butterfly vase

Hello Crafty Friends!

Earlier this week I posted a project on the Quietfire Design blog.  The inspiration for the project came from the talented Chana at Redora Lee Designs.  She makes the most beautiful altered bottles!  

I had a cute, wee bottle that I just could not put in the recycling bin.  I altered the bottle and used two heartening Quietfire Design stamps, You are Amazing:
You Are Amazing - Mounted
and Be Yourself from the Woods Would be very Silent stamp set:
The Woods Would be Very Silent - Set of 5 Stamps - Mounted
The lovely papers were from Graphic 45's Nature's Sketchbook collection. Love the butterflies and images!
Below are more photos of the jar:

Aren't the stamps gorgeous??
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the project.  :)  And thank you, Chana, for the inspiration!

Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
