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 27, 2014

Welcome to this weeks post with Heartfelt Creations.
It is bitterly cold here in VA., but no snow. I would love to see some snow, but not as much as the East Coast is getting. 
I made a card this week with the Birds and Blooms collection. This is a beautiful collection with 
so many amazing stamps, dies and papers.
I hope you will get a chance to play with the collection, and create some amazing projects.
Stop by Heartfelt Creations blog for more inspiration from the rest of the 
Design Team.
You can also take a peak at a card made with the Butterfly Medley Collection, coming in February.
