Family Love-Truly Close To My Heart

A new Color My Heart Color Dare challenge this week got me to try to make a heart that was an inspiration to me. The colors of cardstock I used for this project are Raspberry, Mink and Juniper.


One of the CTMH consultants created a lovely one page layout using four colors in a fallish color theme. I loved it! Sometimes I need a shove, so I decided to use these 3 colors to get me off of square one. Using a heart from one of our CTMH Cricut cartridges, Artistry, I sized it at 9 1/2" and cut a white cardstock heart. I then picked a sheet of each color and cut 1 heart from each color. Stacking the 3 colors and holding them tightly together, I made cuts with my paper cutter keeping the lowest point of the heart as the starting point cutting 1-1 1/2" around each side. I used our Flower Market cartridge and cut a rose at 2 1/2" using a white background and raspberry highlight. I also cut some leaves for a little added interest. I used on of my favorite stamps, What Matters Most D1728, and stamped "family" "love" in raspberry. Bitty sparkles Z1263, lots of them, and a liberal use of the clear shimmer brush over the rose and the seems along the color divides. The center of the rose has a gold glitter gem.

Here is my final product:


The upside to this project is if you are cutting 3 or 4 colors, you can put together 2 or 3 additional hearts. Very cool. One for you and others for friends or family. WooHoo!!!!

Card Challenge for April 12, 2018

I made a card for the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge for April. 
Color Dare #286--Tic Tac Toe with Stargazer Color Palette
Color Dare #286 - Closes Thur Apr 12th

With that challenge, here is a card I made with my son  in mind (who has always been a fan of Astronomy and anything to do with space). 


Using the leftovers of the Stargazer kit, I put this together using the Make It From Your Heart vol. 4 card templates. The rocket is one of the PML cards that I cut down. Crazy easy to do!!


Thanks for stopping by!

Designer Travel Cases part 2

I did a quick video on the second part of the Designer Travel pieces I received from Close To My Heart recently. The Designer Travel series are cases and luggage that can be used for carrying your scrapbooking supplies to retreats or your friends home, or wherever you are travelling and want to bring all your scrapbooking materials. You don't want your papers to get wrinkled or dogeared so the cases were designed accordingly. You want all your like things, for instance inks, stamps, tools, to be in separate containers for organizational purposes and away from your papers. The Designer Travel system takes all of that in mind.

Here are pictures of all the Designer Travel pieces from CTMH:












Here is my crazy video about some of the pieces:
