Color Dare #353 ~ Purples

Welcome to another week of Color Dare!  This week we have a good one for you.  This weeks challenge is PURPLES!  You can use up to two neutrals and BLACK & WHITES are free.

I LOVE PURPLE!!! It is my favorite color so I was excited to design something for this challenge.

I used the True Love Paper Pack for the background as it features Eggplant and the purple striped is perfect.  I used Lilac cardstock to cut the lace with the Lace Border Thin Cuts. The ribbon is retired but I still love it and have been saving for for that perfect project.  I used the Fancy Tags on White Daisy cardstock. The stamp set used is one of my all time favorites, Know I Care, unfortunately it is now retired.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #353 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, August 8, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   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!

Sweet Girl Layout

One of the paper packs from the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book is SWEET GIRL. While this paper pack it definitely girly you can totally pick the papers you choose to highlight and tone down the pinks.  I was looking through some of my photos and thought this paper pack would work well with our trip to Antigua in 2015.

So in 2015 my husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and we took a wonderful vacation to Antigua and stayed at a Sandals Resort.  We had a fantastic time!

Close to my Heart ~ CTMH ~ CatScrapbooking ~ Sweet Girl ~ Layout ~ 6 photo layout ~ thin cuts I am totally loving the new thin cuts with the Stitched Flowers thin cuts.  I also used the Sweet Girl Complements. The journaling tag is from the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts, I use my one of my copic markers to color the edges of the tag.  I also added some of the Blue Burlap Ribbon to the tag.

Happy Crafting!
