Welcoming the Camelia Carnation Collection from Heartfelt Creations

Kia Ora and Welcome

Today sees the launch of the gorgeous Camellia Carnation Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This is such a beautiful collection with so many colours and designs to choose from!

Beautifully ruffled in delicate layers and commonly gifted to express love, fascination, and distinction, the carnation flower is certainly recognizable and a floral garden and arrangement favorite. Thought to be one of the oldest cultivated flowers in the world, the carnation is traditionally associated with the Mother’s Day holiday, but is also known to be a wonderful choice for birthdays, weddings and just because occasions. With an outstanding reputation as a cut flower, and an amazing array of colors and sizes, it is no wonder that the carnation flower remains so popular today! Heartfelt Creations invites you to celebrate the beauty and gentle humbleness of the carnation with the Camelia Carnation Collection! With a color palette of fiery reds, pastel pinks, sunset orange tones, and lush hues of greens, the gorgeous paper collection brings with it a bold but feminine feel. Filled with attractive carnations clusters, exquisite flower gardens, and decorative lace like details, this pretty paper collection is sure to become a perennial favorite. Two cling stamp sets and coordinating dies come together to create enamoring and realistic carnation blossoms with delicately illustrated details and varying sized petals ideal for assembling full sized carnation flowers to charming mini versions, while a third cling stamp set lends itself perfectly to layering and creating dimensional carnation clusters. So join with us as we celebrate and give recognition to the traditional, but somewhat overlooked and under praised carnation flower!

For the launch I have made a card using a shadow box which is so much fun.

Winning with Papercraft Essentials!!

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

Today I am so excited to finally announce that I have won a cardmaking competition in England!!!

I saw a call on Facebook for people to make a card featuring the Apple Blossom collection of embossing folders (All Occasions Folders) and thought about it and then when the deadline for postage came up I decided to actually enter it.  I made one card but it didn’t look right so I made another card right at the last minute which I was much happier with.  I was up early in the morning to complete it and then posted it that afternoon to England.

I couldn’t believe it when I got an email from the publisher of Papercraft Essentials to say that I had won.  In fact I had to read the email several times before it sunk in!!!  And here is the winning card:

You never know what you can achieve unless you try!
