Heart 2 Heart ~ Add a Border

Welcome to the second Heart 2 Heart challenge for February!

For this challenge it is about adding a border. Maybe it is stitching, or a stamped border, whatever you can think makes a border. Just remember when you are participating in our challenge you must include one Close to My Heart product.

I used the Make it from your Heart Volume 4, card pattern number 10 to base my card on.

Here is the list of products used.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. Did you know you can link your projects from Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Flickr, and many other platforms using the url link to your design. You have until February 28th to participate in this challenge. Make sure you include at least one Close to My Heart product. We love to see your inspirations!!

I love the Happy Hexagons stamp set!!!!

I thought it would be the perfect stamp set for a layout of my son.Jump in July ~ Hexagon ~ Blossom & Snowhaven ~ boy layout ~  catscrapbooking.comFor this layout I used the Happy Hexagon stamp set C1596.  I decided to mix a couple of the paper packs which you would not usually think to mix together ~ Snowhaven with Blossom.   I also added the Honey from the Adventure Fundamental paper pack and White Daisy and Whisper Cardstock.  I love the way this layout turned out ~ so remember to think outside the paper packs and mix them up.

I used my Cricut to cut the hexagons from the Artbooking cartridge.   The title was cut using my Cricut Explore using Design Space.  I used Enviro and Ashlyn’s Alphabet ~ Block to create the title.  I cut the title twice so that the Whisper acts as a shadow.  Then to add a little bling I used the Coral Reef Sequins Z3042.

Your next stop on the hop is HALEY DYER’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Father’s day gift

I knew as soon as I saw the Buzz & Bumble paper that this would make a great Father’s Day gift.  I had been wanting to design another frame so this would be perfect.  Unfortunately it is hard to crate something and keep it a secret from my husband since he often pops into the craft room.  So he got one of his Father’s day gifts early….

Fathers day frame

To create this frame I used the My Creations Bracket Frame Z1797, Buzz & Bumble paper pack X7164B, Honeycomb stamp set C1537,  and Burlap ribbon Z1760.  I used the spellbinders tear drop die to make the rosette. I used my Silhouette to cut the letters and hexagons.

Hope you enjoy~  Cat
