Have a wonderful week and Happy Creating, Emma Lou


I loved the colors and versatility and how you can use stamps from different groupings and they all come together amazingly. The cards created with Heartfelt are truly treasures. love all the products. -Jennifer


Everything matches and co-ordinates; great value because you have several sets that can be used in the one die...LOVE that you can cut out heaps of flowers in one pass with one die. HC Collections make it easy for everybody, regardless of skill or artistic talent, to create lovely cards and layouts. -Juliette Hendry


I love each collection of stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations that I have purchased. People tell me they save my cards from year to year. Should get the monkey collection tomorrow. Can hardly wait. Cards for the grandsons! -Katherine Martin Clark


I have had more fun with this set! Beauty and cuteness all in one! -Fran Gumprecht


I ordered the snow kissed collection and absolutely love it! The snowmen and pine trees are such a beautiful addition to any winter card. The matching paper collection makes it so easy to create beautiful cards. -Connie Stalcup

Heartfelt makes it so easy to make flowers! They are so easy to assemble. The papers are gorgeous and the right weight. -Marilyn Hale

Have you got any suggestions on roses. I bought you pack but am finding it hard to know where to cut the roses or how to display them. I just love and adore your techniques

Today's video has presented us with so-o-o many tips and tricks! Your techniques can be applied to countless projects. Many thanks for not being afraid to make a mistake on camera. Creative repairs are often better than the original design!! In my humble opinion, this is one of the best tutorials on your site...reassurance that mistakes won't ruin an entire card is such a valuable lesson! Much appreciated!

Hello, it is Spring! I am looking forward to a wonderful summer. Your variety of flower dies gives me options for any occasion. Have you thought of making an Iris collection? If I had to pick a favorite from your flower collections, it would be the roses. But - if you ever made an Iris collection, I already know... that would be my ALL TIME FAVORITE. Your stamps and coordinating dies are the best!!! Oh and making cards is a quick and super relaxing way to do a little something, an "I thought of You today", for all those someone specials in my life. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!...to all of you, because of all that you do...I am inspired beyond anything - I would have ever dreamed. Here is a Great Big THANK YOU!!!
