Designer Friday

Happy Friday! I have two beautiful projects to share with you from the very talented Heidi.  First, this gorgeous layout:

Heidi used flocked My Mind's Eye paper and a new set of Sewing Pattern Petals (in the shop soon!).  I love the precious photograph and the little pops of red in the hearts.  Heidi also made this incredible decor piece:

She used eighteen Precocious Paper flowers, including Orange Bridal Satin Blossoms, Black Lace Flowers, the Halloween Bouquet, and the Halloween Rolled Fabric Flowers.  Even though several of these are part of Halloween sets, I love how the colors transition with the holidays to a sophisticated fall feel.  Heidi created a tutorial for this project at Scrapbook News and Review (a fabulous online scrapbook mag with a fantastic newsletter).  Heidi will be posting the tutorial to her blog soon.

As part of my Attitude of Gratitude challenge, several of the design team members are playing along, and on their Designer Fridays they will be sharing with you here, too.  Heidi said, "I feel very thankful to be living the life I am right now.  I have two beautiful, healthy, bright children and an amazing husband who (mostly) quietly puts up with my crafting obsession.  We have a supportive extended family that is close-by and always willing to play dress-up and Legos for hours on end.  And I have discovered a hobby that feeds my craving for creativity and have made so many wonderful, inspiring friends as a result.  It doesn't get much better, in the grand scheme of things, than this."

I must say I'm grateful for Heidi and all that she has done for me - inspiring me, sharing ideas, and creating these fabulous projects.  Thank you, Heidi!  Today (and truly everyday) I'm grateful for my husband.  I've been struggling to fill a large order because of a major supply shipment getting lost and not arriving on time.  Between that and the regular daily stresses of life, including my wonderfully rambunctious three boys, I was stressed out last night.  He made dinner, corralled the boys, and calmed me down.  Thank you, honey.

If you'd like to see even more beautiful Precocious Paper projects today, stop by Amanda and Mandie's blogs.  And stop by Heidi's to read more about her projects, including the story behind her layout.

Did you think I forgot?  I have to announce the winner from October's Designer Friday Giveaway Day.  Drumroll please.......... Vicki!  Vicki, email me with your info and I'll get a little goody bag out to you :).

Have a great day! Tessa
