New Oakberry Lane Collection From Heartfelt Creations

Come along as we head deep into the woodlands to explore the world of Oakberry Lane…the newest collection from Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful illustrations of lively, high spirited and lovable squirrels, this collection is one to capture your heart and creative imagination, and will appeal to both the young and the young at heart! Create irresistible outdoor themed scrapbook layouts preserving those precious moments experienced in the great outdoors, as well as charming handmade greeting cards ready to deliver well wishes and sentimental thoughts to friends and loved ones! Darling illustrations of squirrels at play on teeter totters and tire swings, gathering nuts, and bounding about in beautiful floral gardens with their tails held high, remind us that taking time to play, enjoying the company of others and banding together to make light work of the tasks at hand are important to a well balanced life! A stunning autumn themed color palette of acorn browns, woodland greens, sunset oranges, autumn leaf reds, along with deep plums and dark pinks, lay the foundation for decorative papers displaying delicate lace like patterns, vintage style barn wood patchwork backgrounds, as well as fascinating outdoor garden settings! Create your very own Oakberry Lane scenes with three cute and entertaining cling stamp sets and coordinating dies featuring a substantially sized acorn homestead, an assembling of lovable squirrels at play, and of course Oakberry Lane’s own signature wildflower blossom ready to be stamped, colored and assembled into a realistic 3D floral embellishment to accent all of your Oakberry Lane creations! So take a cue from our furry friends and make time to join in on the merriment! A creative adventure awaits you…we promise!

I had a lot of fun creating these tags with the adorable little squirrels.
