Heart 2 Heart ~ Life’s a Beach

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week with Heart 2 Heart our challenge theme is ~ Life’s a Beach. For me I went to dreaming about going to the beach since we have had to cancel our cruise to Hawaii this summer. So I decided to get some of our prior beach excursion into the scrapbooks. I wanted to show you how awesome the Close to My heart Seas the Day Scrapbook workshops is.

The Seas the Day Scrapbook workshops is an amazing kit that helps you create 2 double page layouts plus 2 single page layouts. All you really need to do is add your photos and assemble.

This is how I put one of the layouts together. Here is how they show it. I did make some minor changes to the right page.

Here is a close up of each page.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until APRIL 30th 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!

Color Dare #389 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe ~ Seas the Day

This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #389 we have our popular Tic-Tac-Toe board this time it is focused around the Seas the Day papers.  For this challenge you can use any diagonal, row or column, you can add in any of the other colors shown.  Blacks & Whites are FREE, but NO other Neutrals.

I love this paper pack and it is so perfect for beach scenes. I used all the colors except Sage.

I designed this layout for a stop that we took on our 2018 Cruise. I used the Seas the Day paper pack and sticker sheet.

Here is the layout with our photos.

I just got back from a beach vacation so I thought it would be great to go ahead and design a scrapbook layout from this trip.  I also had been doing a little bit of organization in preparation for my trip to Anaheim and the 2015 Close to My Heart convention.  There I will have a sneak peak at all the new product which will be released September 1st.   Anyway, in my cleaning I discovered I have several SVG files that I forgot I owned so I got them in my Silhouette and printed photos to remind myself to used them.  One of the ones I found was this Tropical Paradise.

Color Dare #151 ~ Seaside ~ Tropical Paradise ~ Vacation layout ~ catscrapbooking.comI love the hibiscus flower and the island was covered with them so it was the perfect accent.  I also added the stitching by using a ruler and my white gel pen.  Here is a close up.
