In the Spotlight!

This week at Heart 2 Heart the Challenge is to put something "In the Spotlight"  I made a Black & White Card using a retired Close to My Heart Stamp Set and leftover scraps from the For Always Paper Pack.  I stamprd many "Happy's" with "Birthday" in the Spotlight!

I am excited to have participated in every H2H Challenge this month, I hope I can keep it up in February!

H2H Two Faced Challenge

The Heart 2 Heart Two Faced challenge is to use both sides of a two sided pattern paper. For my card I used a brand new Close to My Heart paper called Lollydoodle.  (Isn't that a fun name?) I also used the stamp set which comes with the Lollydoodle Card Making Workshop on the Go.  These items will be available for purchase from the new Spring/Summer 2014 CTMH Idea Book starting February 1, 2014.

Heart 2 Heart Challenge

This week the H2H Challenge is all about CTMH.  We are to create a project using CTMH in some way.  I have been working on a My Creations Kraft 3 Ring Album with my pictures from the CTMH 2013 Convention at Walt Disney World in Florida.  I have pictures of what is completed so far, starting with the cover.  The paper and stamp set used were made special for the CTMH Consultants attending the Convention.

To qualify for the challenge, the page below has CTMH cut out from the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.

Heart 2 Heart - Something New

I haven't done a challenge in a long time. I hope to start doing them more often. This week Heart 2 Heart is challenging us to use something new. Here is a "preview" of the February Stamp of the Month (S1402) I used to make a 3 x 3 gift card.  I also used "Distressed Backgrounds" (D1544) for the background on the card.

Three Amigos January Mini Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos January 2014 Close to My Heart Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. On the 3rd day of each month we will feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.  
For our Fifth "Hop" we thought we would say Good-bye to the items on the Close to My Heart Retiring List.

I made a Layout with the Huntington Paper Pack.  I also used the following stamp sets that are retiring at the end of this month:
A1134 - Dragonfly
B1420 - Hello Twetty
C1536 - Happy Thoughts

Now hop over to Susan's Blog to see what she has created this month.

Close to My Heart products can be purchased through  my Close to My Heart website.
