Jumping for Joy

Toni here and super excited to be sharing one last coffee card with you!  I'm using Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall 6x6 paper (I swear all my cards lately have used it!!!) as well as the LF Slide on Over dies that are on their way to the shop.  Isn't this scene adorable?

The dies were soooo easy to use and, more importantly for me, conceptualize.  I used both the short (for the slider channel) and the long (for the pull tab) straight ones here.  I added a little stop on the back to prevent the girl from popping above the sentiment.

You can read more about my process as well as see a pic of the mechanism behind the scenes at my blog, Frankie Helps Craft.

September Guest Designer, Take 2

It's been fabulous to have Jen Shears guest designing with us and even more fabulous that she will be joining the challenge DT starting in October.  Yay!  We got to meet her in person last weekend since she's a local gal.  Lots of laughter and good company that day.

Here Jen used the new Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairy Friends paired with Lawn Fawn Love You a Latte.  I love this card a latte, don't you?!  Did you notice it's a shaker?  Dude, amazing!  Thanks, Jen, for sharing your creativity with us.  We look forward to crafting with you!

The Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop ends today but you still have a little time.  Enter for your chance to win one of two $15 gift certificates The Heart Desires is offering up as a sponsor prize!

More Coffee Inspiration and New DT in the House!

We are so very pleased to announce that we have 3 new gals joining our fabulous team.  Please give them a warm welcome!  You will see their wonderful work starting with the October Challenge--woo hoo!

Juhi Khanna (Juhi's Handmade Cards)
I’m Juhi from India. I moved to Singapore last year with my husband and 4 year old daughter. Though I have been crafting for a very long time, I got hooked on to stamping and cardmaking once we moved to Singapore. I love to learn and explore new stamping techniques with water coloring being my favorite right now. I also love to teach crafts.

Wendy McGaffey (Wake Up with Wendy)
Hello my name is Wendy.  I married my high school sweetheart over 30 years ago and we have 3 grown children and 3 frisky "Yorkie" furbabies. I have been scrapbooking and creating cards for a long while now but just starting blogging about 6 years ago when we relocated and I ended up far away from family and friends. I love this great welcoming community of creators. I am super excited to join The Hearts Desires team and can't wait to get started.  Wow, the talent here is so inspiring.  Thanks for inviting me to join you.

Jen Shears (Jen Shears Designs)
My name is Jen and I am beyond excited to be joining The Heart Desires team! I'm a PNW girl & enjoy all things crafty- and the wonderful crafting community! I also love photography, snow skiing, gardening & spending time boating with my family. My husband and I celebrated our sweet 16th wedding anniversary this year and we are so lucky to have a very crafty 11 year old daughter. We have 2 rescued family members as well- a dog (Cosmo-he's in the picture with me!) and cat (Barney)- they crack us up daily.  A great big thank you for this opportunity!
