Welcome to my blog. I would like to create a place where I can share my love of crafts with you. I started paper crafting in August of 2011. I just had my one year anniversary. I love making cards, doing scrapbook pages, creating flowers, quilling and many other crafts. I found out about greeting cards when watching a Stamp TV video a few months later. I am hooked on card making now. Love everything about it. I hope that you will join me in my love of crafts.

January 14, 2015

Welcome to this weeks post with Heartfelt Creations.
Chase the winter blues away with a breath of springtime!  I am so excited to present Heartfelt Creations'  newest collection,
"Birds and Blooms" collection:  
A spring garden that's as  lovely as a song! 
Shades of cherry blossom pink, robin's egg blue, and soft leafy green fill sunny garden scenes featuring bluebirds, blooming branches, picket fences, bird baths, bird houses, butterflies and frilly hydrangeas.  
Dozens of stunning card fronts, pre-designed layouts, borders, sentiments and artwork are the perfect remedy for mid-winter doldrums. 
Six hand-drawn stamp sets feature blossom laden branches, nesting birds, garden scenes and an elegant collage.  
Two sets of dies coordinate with papers and stamps allowing you to add realistic blossoms, branches and birds to your artwork.  
Take a well-deserved break from the bleak landscape of winter and escape to a colorful springtime garden where birds chirp, flowers bloom, and soft breezes lift your spirit and inspire your creativity!
I hope you will find time to stop by Heartfelt Creations blog and look at all of the 
gorgeous creations.
