Monkeys on an Adventure of a Lifetime!




Hello bloggers. I have an altered project today in honor of our dear creative director, Emma Lou and her husband Richard. They have just returned from a trip to New Zealand and if I am not mistaken Australia as well.  A little business trip with some fun on the side! I thought his picture frame was a cute way to show off the Heartfelt Creations Monkeying Around collection, as the trip as Emma Lou showed us on her "live" video stream on Facebook looked tropical to me. Enjoy!


Thanks for stopping in today and be sure to head on over to the HC Blog for all the wonderful creations from my teammates.

Hugs, Maureen

He Lives! Flowering Dogwood




Hello bloggers. This is our last week of showcasing this collection the Flowering Dogwood from Heartfelt Creations. I think I will get a lot of use from this release, as I can see wedding cards using the doves, sympathy using the crosses, and of course, Easter is coming up sooner than we think. My card today is clean and simple, for me anyway. I think the soft pastel color speak volumes and don't need a lot of fuss. I hope you enjoy it.


Remember you can find complete instructions for this card and lots of beautifully made projects over on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, so be sure to stop in and check them out. 
Thanks for stopping in.

Flowering Dogwood Release




Hello there bloggers. I am delighted to show you this new release today, Flowering Dogwood, it is stunning! I will use this collection for many occasions, Easter, sympathy, baptism, conformation, the possibilities are endless. Our sweet author Tracey has written up the most beautiful description for you all to enjoy!  

Heartfelt Creations invites you to usher in the spring season with the new Flowering Dogwood Collection!  Immerse yourself in this newest springtime assembling of designer papers, divinely detailed cling stamps and coordinating dies steeped with beautiful meanings and symbolism perfect for the Easter Season!  The dogwood tree is surrounded by a mesmerizing legend within the Christian faith…once the size of a mighty oak tree it was chosen to be used to construct the cross on which Jesus was to be crucified.  The tree became unhappy with its purpose and would never again grow large enough to ever build another cross.  Its branches would become narrow and crooked and no longer suitable for construction.  The delicate dogwood flower itself is a wonderful symbol of the Easter season…four petals that resemble the shape of a cross, the center laid as a crown of thorns, at the tip of each petal an indent resembling nail punctures, and a reddish hue around those indents resembling the blood of Jesus.  Soft and pastel in coloring, this newest paper collection reveals beautiful springtime shades of pinks, peaches, and greens which set stunning backdrops for scripted lettering and graceful swirls, while darker hints of blues and blacks bring out the gorgeous detail and coloring of the showy dogwood
florals.  Bountiful blossom filled branches, peaceful white doves and hillside chapels are just a few of the beautiful illustrations found within the cling stamp sets!  Assemble the perfect dimensional dogwood flower using the varying sized petals within the Flowering Dogwood Cling Stamps Set and die cut using the coordinating dies.  The ideal collection to send out springtime and Easter wishes to friends and family!

I hope you enjoy my card today it was such wonderful release to work with. I chose to create an Easter card, as it's will be here before we know it.


Here's a close-up of my pretty vellum Dogwood flowers.
