I am very excited to share with you our newest collection from Heartfelt Creations.  

Move on over spring, and let summer begin…the new Classic Petunia Collection by Heartfelt Creations has arrived!  No flower signifies summer more than the large trumpet shaped blossom of the gentle petunia!  Surround yourself with memories of wandering through greenhouses filled to the brim with a multitude of varieties in every color, from solids to variegated, compact to blanketing and of course those showy hanging baskets and container gardens spilling over with these heat loving flowers! The becomingly illustrated cling stamp sets found within this collection will have you planning your very own garden themed paper crafts filled with trailing petunias, bountiful bouquets and lavish petunia filled hanging baskets.  Three sizes of coordinating stamp and petal die cuts will allow you to recreate the ever popular petunia, making it easy to cut and shape the perfect blossom in the ideal size and color necessary for any project from handmade cards, scrapbook layouts and even altered art pieces.   A beautiful selection of premade card panels and scrapbook pages filled with illustrations of graceful petunias in hanging baskets, classic terra cotta pots and pretty garden scenes showcasing elegant petunia draped wishing wells and white washed garden benches allow for ease in creating any garden variety creations.  Filled with classic petunia pinks and deep purples along with pretty leaf like greens, the delicately patterned papers in this charming paper collection will transport you to your favorite garden plot!  So join with us as we usher in the summer season with the tender flowers of the new Classic Petunia Collection….no fertilizing, deadheading or watering required!  We promise!
