Heartfelt Creations semi finialist projects

I thought that I would post my  semi finalist projects that I sent into Heartfelt Creations.  The first one is posted on the Heartfelt Creations Blog along with all the other beautiful projects from the design team.  Heartfelt Creations  stamps and dies are so beautiful and they make it so easy to stamp, cut and create.  If you are shy, there are video tutorials that you can watch over and over again. You can find all the how to do's right here.

 The first project is a mini album and  the idea came from SCS tutorial here.  I changed the dies and the size and made it into a mini album instead of an accordian card. What a beautiful gift that could turn into a keepsake.

Opened you can see that there is a place for a gift card, a photo, a tag, journaling, or any other little item you can think of.
