New Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Who inspires you and what is the best way to celebrate them? Whether it’s your favorite author, a good friend, a celebrated artist or chef, a family member in the military or yourself...the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations commemorates the important ones and moments.  Cool blue hues, weathered sailboats and bold typography are a commemoration to loved ones and creativity.

  4. Hi Angelica,
    I have never posted a message on your blog before but I saw this mini photo book on the Heartfelt Creations blog today and was Amazed. I love how you combined the All Geared up collection with this one. This card is so creative and artistic. I love the tie / lacing technique on the front. Fabulous job! Kudos.
