Sisters....

For the BTF - Between the Folds blog today I have a layout featuring the Hello Lovely paper pack. I am a bit late in posting as it has been a crazy busy week but I wanted to make sure I shared. 


All Products are CTMH. The title is a silhouette cut with a background added. Again, sorry for the late post!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work!

Until next time, happy crafting!

Congratulations - H2H challenges

Hi! Happy Monday to you! Today I bring you the latest challenge from the H2H challenge blog and the challenge this week is Tuxedo (Black & White). This one proved to be a bit of a challenge for me as I kept thinking of this would make a great accent colour to offset the black and white, or I could put this bling here but it was not black or white..ahhh that was hard for me but I think I did good even though I found it to be a challenge. 



I hope you will join us and play along, it is amazing how striking black and white can be together and we would love to see what you come up with. 

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Just for you - AHSC #197

Today I stepped out of my comfort zone and have a card that is all stamping. I was inspired by a card from a fellow Close to my Heart Consultant Sarah Poulton. I loved her card so much I just had to step out of my comfort zone and give one a try. Sarah's card can be found here. 





For this card I used a lot of ink colours and two retired stamps:

Ink:
Blossom, Raspberry, Canary, Sea Glass, Fern, and Tangerine.

Stamps:
- C1612 Shower Flowers (retired)
- S1411 it's the Little Things (retired)


I hope you like the card, it really was a step out of the norm for me and for my workshop gals, I had them do this one last night and they loved it and all agreed it was not something they would normally do but had a great time doing it!

We would love to see you join us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge here!

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Hello Lovely - BF Challenge

Two days is a row, I am on a roll this week getting back into my design team duties! Today I bring another Hello Lovely card from my upcoming workshop which I also designed to work with the Ribbon theme at Between the Folds Challenges. This week the challenge is to use ribbon which is absolutely easy to do when you have this gorgeous rose gold ribbon that works so perfectly with this paper!



This card went together super quick. I used the PML cards that come with the paper pack and matted it with Sorbet and then used Fern for the background paper and embossed it with the retired quatrefoil embossing folder. Added some gold glitter gems and the ribbon and done. I left it black so it could be used for any occasion or as a note card. 


We hope you are able to carve out some time in your scrap space because we would love to see your interpretation of this challenge.

Please see the right side bar to read all the guidelines for submitting to our challenge. The main guideline to keep in mind is to use some Close To My Heart products on your project.

You have until Monday, February 13, 2017 at 11:55 p.m. Eastern Standard Time to participate in this challenge.

Don't forget to check back with us on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 to see what the rest of our Design Team have come up with using Ribbon.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
