Kia Ora and Welcome Back
It is time again for some more gorgeous inspiration at Heartfelt Creations and you can see all the lovely projects here: https://www.heartfeltcreations.us/blog/652/elegant-new-inspiration-christmas-savings-for-you
Today I have a layout that I have done using the larger Camelia Carnation stamp and die set. I absolutely loved this paper and the larger carnations fitted well on it. The photo of Emma Lou and myself was taken when she visited New Zealand in February this year. We had such a magical day learning to make cards and an album.
