Convention Time ~ Roommate Gifts

I am SOOOOO excited!  Today the Close to My Heart Convention starts!! I am in Provo, Utah to celebrate in the excitement.  It has been three years since I have been able to attend so I am so excited to be back.  I thought to celebrate I would share the gifts I made for my roommates.  There is a tradition to make something crafty for your roommates.  I decided to make Postit Note Holders.

Since it it all about crafting what would be better than using the Craft On papers with the Crafting Shapes Thin Cuts.  I made the tops Shakers using the Shaker Window & Confetti Thin Cuts with Shaker Window Foam & Acetate. I used Pixie cardstock as the base.  It was cut at 3 1/2 inches by 7 inches.  I scored the base at 3 1/4 and 3 3/4 inches.  I used some ribbon from my stash to make it look like a gift.

I changed up the colors I used to cut the Crafting Shapes Thin Cuts.  I used the Loose Crafty Sequins and Silver Foil Paper for the scissors. I couldn’t resist making one for myself.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ You are My Sunshine

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks theme is YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE!  I was finally finding time to work on my Craft with Heart subscription.  And one of the layouts totally fit this challenge.  This layout is from the Craft On which is the August kit.  I ordered the year so I get the four with each new catalog at once. I have to be totally honest in that I was not sure I would love these kits as much as I have.  They have totally helped me to get more of my scrapbooking pages completed.  I know not every layout fits with the photos I want to scrapbook; however, with a few easy changes they can totally work for me.

This layout has bunch of flower, but it totally works for photos of my son on a nature walk.  I added a few insects to make it work better with these photos.  The stamp set I used is a retired one called Bugs and Hugs.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until June 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ Craft On

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This challenge is Craft On!  While Close to my Heart does have a great paper pack with this name so that would be an easy way to participate in this challenge. But you can interpret this any way you see fit.

I decided to go with the Craft On Paper Pack.

I had these photos of my son and I, which was not as common for me to have.  Before I started taking selfies and mostly using my cell phone as my camera, there were not as many photos of the two of us as I am generally the one behind the camera. I used the Craft On paper pack, using 4 of the different printed papers.  I also used White Daisy, Emerald, Pixie and Lemon cardstock.  I am loving our thin cuts and used the Stitched Flowers and Fancy Tags.  I could not leave the layout without adding a bit of bling with the Crafty-Loose Sequins.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until June 30th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
