Heart 2 Heart ~ It’s a Banner Day!

Welcome to Heart 2 Heart’s first challenge of July!! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!

For this challenge we are encouraging you to use banners, pennants or flags in your design. I decided to design a layout using lots of banners.

I used some Almond cardstock as my base page. I used one of the pattern papers from the new Wander collection, the rest of the pattern papers come from the new Seasonal Mix-Ins, except for the New England Ivy pattern paper, it is from a prior seasonal mix-in July/August. I also used French Vanilla, Sapphire, and New England Ivy cardstock.

I wanted to add a bit of interest to my Almond cardstock so I used one of the stencils in Stencil Pack 3 with a distressed oxide in, Brushed Corduroy. I added some of the Wooden Stars and a bit of the Steel Stickles. I used my Cricut to cut the title.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. Did you know you can link your projects from Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, and many other platforms using the url link to your design. You have until JULY 31th, 2021 to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ B

Welcome to the Everything ABC Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog Hop

For this hop we will be featuring the letter “B”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “B” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at LINDA’S BLOG ~ SCRAPPY THERAPY .  If you just came from Linda’s Blog then you are in the right place.

I have been on a roll of completed some layouts that I have had waiting to be completed.  For this layout I had the paper and the photos just not the layout design yet.  When I was trying to decide on a “B” element I though of one of the stamp sets I really like Bodacious Banners and knew I wanted to focus on this.  I then was looking though my stack of layouts to complete and saw this one and knew it would be perfect with the Brown, Blue and green.
