Hello Friend,
How is your week going? Can you believe's the last day of November!!! Are you ready to start the countdown to Christmas? The holidays can bring lots of fun and special memories with family...BUT...if you're like me, there are times during the holiday season where I need to take a "breather" and really pause and evaluate if I'm enjoying the special moments....or just caught up in a whole list of "to do's." 

During this busy season, make sure to "make some time for yourself" to create something beautiful! I find that those times I carve out to create during a busy season, help me to relax, destress, make something pretty....and somehow everything just sits still for a minute as I get lost in a wonderland of creativity.

Need to make some last minute Christmas Cards? Be inspired today and you totally have to visit this post HERE for some quick and easy Christmas ideas you can create in 30 minutes or less!

Have a blessed week! Hugs, Emma Lou

Dear Emma Lou and Family and Staff, Your harvest video was just sensational and exactly what I needed tonight to bring me out of the doldrums. Thanks so much for that one everyone. You are all so savvy and amazing in all that you do, and I can see also that it shows in all the fun you have outside of work as well. Good for you! Keep all these videos coming. I find them so much fun especially to watch on days that I am not creating. So full of inspiration and goodness. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone and may God bless each and every one of you and your loved ones.

Your idea's are always so great. I loved the snowmen and dog cards. I did not think I would like the blue poinsettia's but I do really like them. Thank you for opening my mind to different ideas.

The beautiful projects created by Anita and Anne have really drawn my the floral displays! Thanks to HC dies and tutorials, I have learned that I, too, can feature dramatic floral displays on my cards and mini albums. Thank you!

Harlan, love the new hair style! You're looking great! Loved the video, it takes me back to when my Dad farmed, those were great days. Emma Lou and everyone evolved, thanks for the Black Friday products, can't wait to get mine. May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas.

All of the projects are beautifully done, but my favourite is Karan Gerber's Hibiscus Mini Album. I have recently had the opportunity to meet this designer and have taken four of her classes so far and plan to follow her around Ontario, (when I can) to learn more! Karan has opened my creativity to multiple new techniques using the Heartfelt creation designs to create a layout and multiple cards. Her attention to details in her projects inspire me as a paper crafter to reach beyond single layered paper and embellishments. I love the flower shaping concepts and have put your Flower Shaping stylus kit on My Santa list!!! I am thrilled to have her as a teacher. Having met Karan, I have learned an enormous amount of information of the latest scrapping techniques but she has also teaches her class about the Heart of Heartfelt. In the first class I took with her, I learned about the origin of the company. In a recent class I learned about how the concepts of each themed paper releases relate to Chrisitan beliefs. Karan is a patient teacher and shares her skills with her students inspiring us to use Heartfelt to create much more than a card or a layout...her inspirations, her teaching style all come from her heart! I am now a Heartfelt follower as a result of her!!

Karen, I am so grateful you were able to come out to my classes in October, and you returned in Nov. I am thrilled that you enjoyed the classes and walked away full of inspiration! Your comment really made my day and I am thankful to have met you!

The video of you all being silly was just adorable! I actually watched it twice. You are all so cute. I loved seeing the video of how to use those decorative borders with the Sunrise Lily stamps and dies, too. I have wondered how they work, so now I know. I just might need those. They make a really pretty border. Thank you for showing us how to make beautiful cards. P.S. I loved seeing Harlan messing around with everyone. He has a lot of energy and joy.

Love all the beautiful flowers and borders. Thanks so much for all the great ideas. Got a lovely card from Cassie Wilson, thank you. We were out of town so haven't had a chance to answer your question but I'll try to get that done soon. You are all so special, I wish you all a Happy and Blessed Christmas.
