New Young at Heart Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Hit the open road with the new Young at Heart Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Retro in style, this fun and playful transportation themed assembling of designer papers, cling stamp sets and coordinating dies will have you reminiscing and reliving past road trips with family, taking in a flick at the local drive in, sitting at the late night hamburger joint with friends in your classic automobile, or soaring the open skies in a vintage airplane! The classic style paper collection is filled with far out transportation graphics from an era in time where life was carefree and the journey was wherever the open road would take you! Diamond checkered patterns, retro themed signs, beach scenes and late night diner script mixed with vintage vehicle graphics are enveloped in a groovy color palette of bright stoplight reds, yellows, and greens, with a hint of electric pinks, flashy teals and glowing orange tones. Two sets of nifty cling stamp sets with coordinating dies reveal high wheeled bicycles, old fashioned airplanes, classic coupes, vintage pick-up trucks as well as several nostalgic banners and signs! A third fun filled cling stamp set flaunts hip and amusing sentiments sporting 50’s era style script perfect for completing the styling of days gone by on all of your retro themed creations! So grab your main squeeze, make sure you’re the first one to call shotgun and travel along with us as we cruise back in time where we will always be forever young!  Warning: use of this collection may cause feelings of youthfulness, feeling carefree or a desire for adventure!

New Beary Fun Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Hi friends, so excited to share with you our newest collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I had a lot of fun designing this paper collection and hope you enjoy creating your projects with all our stamps, dies and paper. 

Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner.  Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a color palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!
