Soft and Pastel!

Just a quick post showing the project I am submitting to the Color Dare Soft and Pastel Challenge and the Double Trouble Challenge. I used foiling supplies from Gina K.  The cardstock, Glitter Paper and Shimmer Trim are all from Close to My Heart.  Becuase the foil likes to reflect whatever is around it, it was difficult to show the pinks that I used.  Trust is pastel and very pretty.

I hope you are enjoying the holidays...Happy New Year!

Season's Greetings

This is the last challenge from Heart 2 Heart before Christmas.  It is also most likely my last blog post before then.  So here is my Christmas card for you


Other than the twine, I used  CTMH product.  I was inspired by a card from the Boutique Workshop Your Way found on page 35 of the 2018 Holiday Expressions.

For more Holiday inspiration, please visit Heart 2 Heart Challenges.

Merry Christmas to all of you.  May you have a joyous Holiday season with family and friends.

As ever,

Photo Inspiration!

This week at Heart 2 Heart, we are challenging you to use this photo as inspiration for a card or other paper project. Maybe you will be inspired by the subject, maybe it is the colors (suggested: Charcoal, Heather, Glacier, New England Ivy) or maybe it is something else.

And here is my card which utilizes the colors and the pine boughs from the inspiraton picture:

This actually is two cards in are a couple pictures that I hope shows this:

This is a not a difficult card to make, but it is a little of a mind trick to make the top card essentially backwards.  To help you, here is a link from the designer, Dawn Griffith:  Double Flap Fun Fold Card.  This YouTube gives all the measurements and directions.  If you love cards with folds, Dawn is the girl!

For more inspirational projects, please visit Heart 2 Heart Challenges Photo Inspiration  You will love what you see!

While we are all busy getting ready for Christmas, I hope you are finding time to craft once in awhile. It can be relaxing, but most of all, it can bring you joy...and we all need more of that!

Talk with you soon,
