Introducing Sea Breeze from Heartfelt Creations

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and I am excited to announce the new Sea Breeze Collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Warm balmy breezes, glistening sun baked sand, and the sound of frothy waves lapping at the shoreline are the perfect assembling of elements to create a tranquil and soothing haven where a tired soul can find rest. The sights, smells, and sounds of the ocean somehow know how speak to your inner most being and conjure up feelings of fresh hope, renewed dreams, and a sense of well-being, as troubles are cast aside, drifting off to the bottom of the sea. A large, towering lighthouse stands vigilant, ready to bring those at on the water safely home while at the same time beckoning you to come for a closer look as you stroll across the gritty ground, bending low to gather tiny, opalescent sea shells as your meander along the shoreline. Enjoy the peace and tranquility that sea breezes carry as you immerse yourself in the beauty and solitude of the new Sea Breeze Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Roll up your pant legs and stroll through a captivating paper collection filled with hues of crisp ocean blues, light sandy browns, glistening corals, and stunning sunset oranges intertwined with faded yellows and fiery reds. Discover beautiful beach scenes displaying stately lighthouses, soaring seagulls, and elegant sailboats as you saunter through every page of this peaceful and calming assembling of artistically styled decorative papers. Stamp, color and die cut your very own seaside harbor retreats for all of your paper crafting creations with the wonderful assortment of cling stamp sets and coordinating dies, boasting detailed illustrations of sand engulfed fences, rocky lighthouse abodes, charming row boats, and pretty sea shells. So, shed your sandals, breathe deeply, and join us as we take in the soothing ambiance of the seaside with the breathtaking Sea Breeze Collection!
