Hi Friends,
Happy Wednesday! How is your week going? Are you settled back into a routine with the kids and grandkids being back in school?

Have you taken time to create something beautiful this week? If not......I invite you to block out a couple minutes to be inspired with all the new projects that will not only inspire you to create something beautiful, but also get you started on creating your Christmas cards early this year. In talking with hundreds of crafters, a huge number say that Christmas is the number one holiday they make cards for! If you have never created Christmas cards before or always seem to push it to the last minute, I challenge you to get started today!

Are you registered for this online class? Don't miss out on your chance to learn how to shape and create Elegant Sweet Peonies 8 Different Ways! Do you feel stuck in a creative rut and use the same flower shaping technique over and over, or maybe your flowers look nothing like the ones you see online. Maximize the versatility with your flowers and learn 8 different and unique ways to shape and create elegant flowers. Register now When you pre-register, you earn a $15 coupon for your next online shopping spree:)

Our Crafters that take online classes say:
Another great class with Emma Lou. Working with vellum is a little intimidating for me, so I am very happy with what I learned in this class. She (Emma Lou) breaks everything down to make it so much easier to understand how to do. I love these classes (this was my 9th). I can't wait for the next class for all the tips and tricks that I know I will learn. -- Lori A

Thank you so much for offering these classes! I look forward to them every month. I love the opportunity to take these classes in my own home, but still have other crafter's and the instructor available for help if I need it. There are always so many good tips offered, too. Such a warm atmosphere! The new vellum paper is awesome! Heartfelt Creations, you're all the best! -- Susan H


Have a wonderful and creative day! Much Love, Emma Lou
