Heartfelt Creations - Happy Camper Debut

Hello and welcome!
Today we're debuting the fun Happy Camper Collection!

There’s absolutely no better way to spend the lazy, hazy, dog days of summer than packing up the camper and heading out onto the open road for a weekend adventure! Whether parked in a secluded campsite among the towering pines, or hunkered down in a modern camping resort, spending time in your home on wheels always guarantees fantastic memories made, and time to slow down and unwind. Soaking up the sun, splashing in the lake, and then heading back to warm up around the campfire and enjoy a chocolatey s’more while the stars come out and flickering fire flies dance through the trees…this is life at its finest! Join us as we celebrate grand traveling adventures with the new Happy Camper Collection from Heartfelt Creations! Wind your way through a fun filled decorative paper collection showcasing picturesque scenes of playful campsites featuring whimsical camper trailers, exciting sentiments, and cheerful florals! Relax and kick up your feet as you soak in the happy colors of grass like greens, sunny yellows, rustic reds, playful pinks and sky blues, along with enchanting patterns including colorful banners, bright polka dots and pleasing plaids! An adorable assembling of cling stamp sets, along with coordinating dies, allow for designing and creating a multitude of adventurous scenes and settings perfect for the summer season! With two adorable camper trailers, an assortment of camping themed accessories such as stringed lights, playful party banners, a charming patio set, as well as a campfire and your favorite fur baby, the design possibilities for handmade greeting cards, scrapbook layouts and altered art projects are endless, allowing you to dream up the perfect happy place to escape to! So, come along with us as we hit the trails, set up camp and take time to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life with the new Happy Camper Collection….no bug spray required!

Here's a Father's Day card I created with this collection.

What an adorable card you have created! I never liked to camp and so I never wanted a little camper but I do like the scooter stamp and I love the sweet banner draped across the top of everything. You always have a way with your creations! Well done girl!
