Heartfelt Creations: Introducing Beary Fun Retreat

Introducing the Beary Fun Retreat Collection from Heartfelt Creations!

Long days filled with sunshine begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer! Along with the falling leaves and a last surge of floral blossoms, autumn brings with it a more relaxed and reflective way of life and a reminder that winter will soon be around the corner. Autumn also brings with it a fun that only autumn can bring…playing in crisp piles of fallen leaves, picnics with warm beverages, cozy evenings spent around the campfire and exploring fields filled with rows and rows of sunflowers bowing their heads giving way to the season! Even the animals of the forest recognize and celebrate the subtle arrival of autumn, spending their last few days before hibernation playing and making preparations for the arrival of the upcoming winter season. Come along with us and join in our fall festivities as we go on one final fun filled retreat with the Beary Fun Retreat Collection by Heartfelt Creations! Filled with delightful and captivating illustrations of adorable bears, this autumn themed collection is sure to appeal to all ages! Perfect for celebrating an array of occasions, this fun loving assembling of stamps, dies and decorative papers will bring a whimsical and lighthearted touch to all of your paper crafting creations. The dynamic paper collection boasts a colour palette filled with beautiful tones of burnt oranges, rusty reds, midnight blues, along with leaf like greens and golden yellows all mixed with checkered plaids, decorative stripes and gorgeous imagery of blooming sunflowers and falling leaves. Three sets of detailed cling stamps with coordinating dies allow you to join in the fall themed fun of a charismatic bear family enjoying their last retreat before winter sets in. Whether sitting around the campfire roasting marshmallows near an adorable treehouse, enjoying songs strummed out quietly on guitar, or filling up on delightful meals of honey, these cute images are ideal for embellishing all of your fall themed cards and scrapbook layouts! So throw on a cozy sweater, grab a cup of hot cocoa and join in the fun as we enjoy one last “beary” fun filled autumn retreat!

Other Products Used:

Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks- Fossilized Amber, Walnut Stain, CTMH Ink- Chocolate, Cardstock (White, Cream), Buttons, Pearls, Beads, Cork Ribbon, Edge Distresser, Distress Paint- Tarnished Brass, Distress Stain- Peeled Paint, Creative Embellishments Chipboard Frame, Chameleon Pens (RD5 Burgundy, YO3 Warm Sunset, OL3 Olive Green, BV4 Blue Violet), Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L (3D Foam Squares, Extreme Double Sided Tape, E-Z Runner Grand), 2” Circle Punch


Instructions: The dark green plaid patterned paper is your background. The cream patterned paper is cut down to 10.5×10.5 and the edges are distressed. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper and mat it with the cork ribbon. I used a small dinner plate to trace my blue patterned circle. I distressed the edges of this also. Adhere these layers together.

Cut a piece of light green patterned paper that is 1.5x 6, tear the bottom and distress the edges. Adhere to the top left hand corner. Cut half a circle from yellow patterned paper. Add this to the top banner. Die cut the window box lattice from dark brown cardstock. Snip one side off and attach to the top banner.


I added green to the chipboard frame using Distress Stain, then added golden bits using the Tarnished Brass Distress Paint. Let dry. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam squares.

Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the maple leaves, oak leaves and birch leaves. Stamp and die cut one of the guitar bears, and the coffee mug. I added colour to all of these images using my Chameleon Pens using no more than a 3 second blend. Shape all of the leaves and set aside.


Stamp and die cut 2 sets of the large and small Water Lily. Added colour to these images using Stack and Store Daubers and Distress Oxide Inks. Shape and assemble the flowers. I added beads to the middles of the flowers using 3D Crystal Lacquer. Let dry.

Cut the largest photo mat from yellow patterned paper using the largest Large Circle die. Cut the photo and the white cardstock mat using the Small Circle dies. Distress the edges of the paper layers and adhere to the middle of the chipboard frame using 3D foam squares. Find and cut out the “a Beautiful Day” sentiment. Adhere to the left hand side of the matted photo.


Add a large and medium flower to the bottom right hand side of the frame. Add a medium flower to the top left hand side of the frame. Then add in pieces of the leaves. Then add in the mini flowers at the ends of the leave clusters. I then added buttons and pearls in and around the leaf clusters. Add a medium flower to the top left banner. Also add a pearl. Add the bear and coffee mug in the bottom right hand corner of the layout using 3D foam squares.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Stay tuned for so many more Beary Fun Retreat creations.
