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.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of March If you are a member of the Close To My Heart VIP program and you place a qualifying order of $50 in the US, you will get the stamp for FREE!!

Color Dare #429 ~ Love of Color

Welcome to another week of Color Dare! This week we have a Love of Color board for you. The colors are BALLERINA, CANDY APPLE, CAROLINA, MINT, FRENCH VANILLA, and SMOOTHIE You must choose at least 3 of the colors. You can add Black, White, Neutrals and Gold/Silver are free.

I used all the colors except French Vanilla but could have easily have substituted the Daisy White for the French Vanilla. It was just that I grabbed the wrong paper. LOL!

I decided to play around with the Happiness Lives Here Cricut Collection. I love this card which is one of the images in the collection. I added a few Silver Glitter gems for bling.

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 #429  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Welcome to the Striped Borders Blog Hop!

This month we are exploring techniques that use striped borders. If you notice in the above photo there are several stamped border images creating a striped pattern. I used some of these and crated my own. If you are coming from BRANDI ROBINSON’s Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE we have about 10 makers participating in this hop.

I created my one striped borders using two stamp sets, Perfect Match and Happiness Lives Here Cardmaking. I used the Perfect Match Papers along with Candy Apple, Carolina, and Ballerina cardstock. I cut the Daisy White cardstock with the Stitched Fancy Bracket Think cut. I also used the Stitched Heart Thin Cuts along with a retired Heart thin cuts. I added a couple of the Perfect Match Mini Hearts with Silver Embellishing Thread and a bit of Pink Taffeta Stickles.

Color Dare #427 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe Happiness Lives Here

This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #427 we have our popular Tic-Tac-Toe board this time it is focused around the Happiness Lives Here paper collection.  For this challenge you can use any diagonal, row or column, you can add in any of the other colors shown.  Blacks, Whites, Neutrals, and Gold are FREE.

I went diagonally with Peach, Blue Belle and Sage. I did add in Canary and Smoothie.

For my card, I used Blue Belle cardstock as the base with one of the pattern papers from Happiness Lives Here paper collection. I then used the Stitched Scalloped Bracket thin cut on Daisy White. The sentiment is from the January Stamp of the Month ~ Every Thank You. I then cut the flowers using my Cricut. I added a couple of Blue Belle Glitter Gems.
