Cascading Fuchsia’s

Cascading Fuchsia’s

Hi everyone!  I am so happy you popped by… I have some inspiration for Heartfelt Creations for you today!  Recently I did a Center Step Card for you and today I want to do a different twist on it.  Instead of having the center panel flat on the front, I recessed the center panel.

Finally finish off the stamens on your flowers with Frosted Lace Stickles.

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
