March SOTM Blog Hop – Winged Masterpiece

Welcome to the MARCH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you are coming here from MICHELLE LONCAR’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 20 Makers participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I was trying to decide what I was going to create and my son was in my craft room at that time. He suggested I do a layout… so I pulled one of the Craft with Heart layouts and made a few modifications.

The overall layout is the same I just changed the tittle and embellishments. I love the Craft with Heart layouts as they are so easy to put together and I can modify them to meet my needs.

I used some of the Happiness Lives Here stickers and wooden shapes. I also added some Pink Taffeta Stickles.

Heart 2 Heart ~ Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

This week our challenge is Eat, Drink, and Be Merry! This can be whatever you interpret it to be. For me it is celebrating the holidays. I have been working on my Craft with Heart Scrapbooking subscription as I finally got my photos picked and printed. I was working on Thanksgiving from 2016 when we had a Friendsgiving. I know this year will be different for so many families but we are looking forward to our quiet celebration at home by ourselves.

I love these layouts as they are so easy to put together and you can modify them as needed.

I added a bit of Blue Belle Shimmer Brush to the leaves and a bit of Desert Rose Shimmer Brush to add some splatters. I also added a bit of Glisten Stickles.

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

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!
