Hello ladies! There has been some buzz around the store about a special event, and I now can tell you all about it!

I fell in love with Heartfelt Creations products years ago at a convention in Seattle and have been promoting their product and teaching their techniques for the past year in Western Canada through local scrapbook stores.
