How to create beautiful cards so that you can make your friend’s day

Print Blog Save This Post to My Library


Hi Friend,

Happy Wednesday! How is your day going? Is this week going exactly as planned and fun memories being made or do you find yourself swallowed up in a mountain of cares or concerns with pressures from work, family, health, or just life in general.....

If you said yes, to any of the above stressing life situations....I want to encourage you to take a moment for yourself and take some time to create something beautiful! This will allow you to de-stress and lose yourself in the wonderland of creativity....and maybe in the process of creating, think about someone that needs to know that you care and bless them with your one of a kind card. You will find yourself rejuvenated and there's just something so satisfying when you see your friend's face or even someone you don't know well, completely light up and be so grateful for your kind gift!  

To get you jump-started for your next card, take  some time to be inspired by the new inspiration that has never been seen before......you WILL be SOOO inspired.....I'm needing to wipe the drool off my face, lol:)

If you missed out on the Monkeying Around release, follow this link:  http://hcgo.co/MonkeyingAround to see all the details and get yours today and you will be on your way to joining the hundreds of crafters who are already having fun creating with this new collection.

I would love to hear what inspired you on the blog today, you can leave a comment at the very end of the blog.

Take care, Emma Lou

Several projects really drew my attention today: Glenda's focal point against a plain background is so well designed; Tracy's growth chart is so cute; and Amarilys' layout is the best photo coordination I've seen!!! Very creative Design Team members! Thank you!

Omg. Your cards are so beautiful and very creative. I love the techniques that were used in each of the cards. Everything is so coordinated...the papers, inks, flowers, and monkeys. I love your stamps and dies.

I absolutely love all of the products I've bought from Heartfelt Creations, and you should look at my wish list! LOL Your newsletter is inspirational, it is the best in the market!
