Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Today is a very special day. Heartfelt Creations is releasing a collection of tags and sentiments. Yay! I know you've all been waiting so patiently (or not!) for this amazing release. 

I created a notepad folio. The 3 layer cluster of tags are all from the new collection. The squirrels from the Oakberry Lane collection were stamped, colored, die cut and then added to the coordinating design paper. 

On the inside I created a pocket to hold the large 4" x 6" tag and the banner which I folded on both sides is also included. On the right I added a sleeve to hold the notepad so that it could be removed and replaced with another one. All these sentiments, and many more, are included in this release. You'll find all the details below.
