2nd Wednesday of the month is here again....that means a Heartfelt Creations new release!

The elegant, and well known lilac blossom takes center stage early in the spring season and is one of the first flowers to usher in the season of new beginnings! Enchanting clusters of tiny blossoms come together to create quaint floral displays with amazing color and a sweet-smelling fragrance that brings with it a feeling of gentility and old world charm! Join us in celebrating a perennial favorite…Introducing the Lush Lilac Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Venture out for a springtime stroll through a dreamy, garden themed paper collection filled with soft hues of luscious lavenders, deep purples, sky blues and pastel pinks accented with dreamy and romantic illustrations of cozy cottages, lilac filled parasols and lovely lilac filled garden settings! Softly scrolling swirls, vintage script and lace like details bring an old fashioned charm to this soft and innocent assembling of decorative papers, while three graceful cling stamp sets along with coordinating dies boast lush lilac sprays, a fetching lilac laden scroll, several endearing sentiments, as well as a winsome lilac filled parasol perfect for paper craft creations celebrating a multitude of occasions! A wonderful mix of lilac buds and blossom petal illustrations lend themselves beautifully to creating realistic and dimensional lilac blossoms when paired with the coordinating die and will bring a gentle touch of spring to all of your garden creations! So come along with us as we celebrate new beginnings and springtime beauty with the new Lush Lilac Collection
