Enjoy the Little Things!

I just finished my Scrapbook and Cards Today project for April.  Our mission trip members always take one afternoon to sight see and have a nice dinner.  This year we enjoyed a trip to the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.

I am not much of a flamingo person, but these papers from the retired CTMH Calypso collection seemed to be perfect for this occasion.  For my title and embellishments, I turned to the included Picture my Life cards. Retired Pink Enamel Gems provide the bling.

I know I am showing you all retired products, but I hope you find inspiration from the layout and the ways the products are used.

Until next time,

Color your World!

Every once in awhile the Heart 2 Heart Design Team gives you a color challenge.  This time it is to create a project using Peacock, Bashful, Blossom and White Daisy.  I decided on this card and was inspired by Pattern 15 in Make it from your Heart, Vol. 4.

Using the Gimme Some Sugar Scrapbooking stamp set (D1758), the flowers were stamped with Bashful and Blossom and the leaves and flower centers were stamped with Peacock.  They were all fussy cut and the top rose was bumped up with Thin 3-D Foam Tape.  The card was embellished with White Shimmer Tape and Bitty Sparkles.  I rather like the results...what do you think?

For more projects using these beautiful colors, please visit Heart 2 Heart Challenges Color Challenge.  The Design Team has provided some awesome projects!

Talk with you soon,

Out of this World!

The Stargazer paper packet and Complements are perfect for creating cards and layouts for your favorite little boys.  Here is my card I created for this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge, "Out of this World".  I was inspired by Pattern 12 in Make it from your Heart, Vol. 4 from CTMH.

I took the quick and easy route (and there is nothing wrong with that) by using one of the images from the Complements pack.  There are also stamp sets that you can personalize with your favorite media and colors.  The embellishments are Stargazer Dots.  These primary color dots can be used in so many ways!  This product line is in the Seasonal Expressions Catalog which will be retiring on April 30th.  Click here to take a look.

I hope you enjoy this card.  For more "Out of this World" inspiration please visit Heart 2 Heart Challenges Out of this World.  We will love it if you use at least one CTMH product to create your project and then use the Linky tool to share what you have done. You have until the end of the month!

Happy crafting,
