Out of My Comfort Zone

 When I decided to create for the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge  this week, I intentionally chose the top row of colors knowing that I might have problem with them.

I used Eggplant and Saffron cardstock as well as white for the sentiment.  My Pixie came in the form of markers.  I also added tones of Sweet Leaf as an optional color. I used a new die from CTMH called Stitched Lattice Background.  I can see it getting a lot of use.

So when all was done, I was really pleased with the card I made using this unusual combination.
I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and see what you can create.  You may be pleasantly surprised!

Til later,

Back to School

 Here is another submission to the Heart 2 Heart Anything Goes challenge. (Look at the older posts to see the first).  The inspiration came from a Scrapbook and Crafts Today class I am enrolled in.  The Cricut files came from SCT  All the cardstock and embellishments are from Close to My Heart.  The patterned paper is from my stash...pretty sure it came from Michaels, but several years ago. I think these layouts may be a little busy, but aren't they fun?

Just are your littles doing school?  These kids are doing remote school.  Their parents have set up individual areas for each of them, and so far it is going well.  They are missing their friends though.

Take with you soon.


Party time!

 I love the new Party Time paper suite from the Close to My Heart core catalog.  Here is a layout I created to celebrate my granddaughter's 18th birthday.  As with so many things this year, there was no party, so I had to be content with stopping by with flowers and a gift.

I will be submitting this layout to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Anything Goes category. Click here to see more great projects.

I hope you are finding ways to celebrate with your family.
