Heartfelt Creations: Purple Classic Rose Layout

Let me introduce you to the Classic Rose Collection.

Beautiful in colour, exquisite in fragrance, and ever so dignified, the rose is one of the most coveted flowers found in chic bouquets, or carefully tended flower gardens.  Breathtaking in bud form, as a blossom gently opening, or in full bloom, it is a flower that calls attention to itself and beckons you to pause and quietly reflect upon its elegance.  Heartfelt Creations invites you to stop, fall quiet and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the new Classic Rose Collection!  Filled with delicate illustrations of roses ranging from buds, to full blossoms, rose wreaths and flower filled vines, the three cling stamp sets and coordinating dies included in this assembling will have you building gorgeous rose gardens filled with varying sizes of dimensional flowers as realistic as those found in nature themselves.  The captivating decorative paper collection will whisk you away to perfectly manicured rose filled grounds, serene meadows where brooks babble and wild roses hold their heads high, and alluring views from charming old world buildings clad in weathered brick and vining florals.  The handsome colour palette of regal purples, deep brick like reds, rich corals and leafy greens filled with delicate swirls, stunning brickwork and floral patterns, along with tender handwritten script are among just a few of the magnificent elements found within this graceful paper assembling. So join us as we slow down, enjoy the view and take some time to linger and smell the roses.

Other Products Used:

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the Rose Vines. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the large Classic Rose, and 3 sets of the leaves from the same set. Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the small Classic Rose.

I used inks and daubers to add colour to my stamped images. Shape the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. I used Tombow liquid adhesive to add the clear beads to the middles of the flowers. Set aside and let dry.


I used the purple background patterned paper as the base of my layout. Cut a strip of the green patterned paper that is about 3.5” wide and adhere to just below middle of the background. Cut a strip of the purple patterned paper that is 2.5” wide and adhere on top of the green pattern. Cut a piece of the dark purple pattern that is 6×7.5 and adhere to left of centre on the layout. Add a piece of the light purple patterned paper that is 3×7, to the left of the dark purple pattern.

I created a layered silk ribbon border using green and purple ribbon. I simply tied a knot every few inches making sure that the opposite colour ended up on top for some added visual interest. Attach on top of the layered border.

Find and cut out the purple tag, and light purple mini journal block and adhere using 3D foam tape just under where your matted photo will end up.


Mat your photo in white, purple and then white cardstock again. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam tape a little thicker than what you used on the tags. Add the mini strip with “Memories Are Forever” to the right of the matted photo.

The last step is to add your already created purple roses in small clusters around the photo. I will often cut apart the leaves so that they show up a little more.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Stay tuned for SO much more from the Classic Rose collection.
