Save This Post to My Library Print Blog

Hey Friend!
How is your week going? I am so grateful for you and to be part of this incredible crafting community! I hear stories all the time of paper crafters creating "art from the heart" and making someone's day by giving them a hand-made card just because they care. It is a small easy gesture to let someone know that you care and what they really mean to you. The design team members love creating with each collection and they each have very unique styles that totally bring out a completely unexpected twist to paper crafting. Today they are mostly featuring the beautiful Tulip Time Collection:)

Burst of Spring Sneak Peek: Awaken your senses dulled from the winter season with an enchanting and deeply hued decorative paper collection filled with sweet and amiable pansy flowers, along with whimsical fluttering butterflies! Beautiful blues, happy yellows and deep purples set the tone for charming pansy clusters and bouquets encompassed in finely illustrated details from lace like accents to intricate brocades!! Who's excited about the Burst of Spring Collection debuting online February 13th. See the preview here: http://hcgo.co/BurstofSpring.


Have a creative and blessed week! Emma Lou

All of these projects are beautiful, and easily made using some creativity and materials you might have on hand. I also like that some of them are simplistic for days when you want to make something without a lot of fuss. I am eagerly waiting for the Spring collection with the Pansies. I love Heartfelt Creations and the teams' willingness to share so many things with instructional videos and on the blog. I also like the vintage look that many of your projects have.
