Heart 2 Heart ~ Celebrate Good TImes

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This weeks challenge is about Celebrating Good Times.  This can be celebrating a birthday, graduation, birth, anniversary or anything that represents a good time.  For our family we embarked on a new journey back in October of 2018.  We decided to sign our son up for Taekwondo.  My husband had done martial arts in the past but this was new to Gavin.  He loved it and was soon after asked to begin leadership.  Since that time we have all joined and it has become an integral part of our lives.  This layout is to celebrate the first day Gavin started and became a white belt.

For this layout I used the Seasonal Mix In papers and Candy Apple and White Daisy Cardstock.  I also added a red pattern paper from Magical paper pack which has been retired. I also added a little Black Shimmer Trim.  I used a layout sketch that I found on Pinterest as my inspiration.  I tried to get my photos printed but with CTMH Conference I am running a bit behind.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until July 31th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #350 ~ Inspiration Photo – 4th of July

Happy Friday!! Hope you are having a wonderful Fourth of July!!  This week for Color Dare #350 we have a great Inspiration Photo – 4th of July. Pick colors that you see in the photo and BLACK , WHITE and NEUTRALS are free!

I could not resits creating a layout celebrating this holiday.  I choose a photo from 4 years ago as I am that far behind in scrapbooking.

I used a combination of papers for this layout.  The red and white polka dot is from Magical which retired.  The blue stars is from the Into the Wild Paper Pack. The base page is from retired Feels Like Home.  I created the other Candy Apple paper by using Glossy Texture Paste and Stencil Sheets. I used my Cricut to cut the Fireworks Overlay. Here is a close up of the paper.

I also used the Spark Joy special Thin Cuts to cut the banner which I used for journaling.  I used some of the loose sequins form Crafty and the red sequins are retired.  I used the star thin cuts which are now retired and stacked them.  The circle are cut using my Cricut and the stitched circle is a Lawn Fawn die.  The stamp is Happy 4th of July.

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 #350 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Personal Layout Challenge #29

Wow can I slow time down?? I thought June was crazy busy but for some reason this month seems even busier if that is possible.  I am falling behind on finding time to get into my craft room.  So my goal of designing a layout a week is a little off course.  So I am about two days behind schedule and my not make this weeks goal but….. who knows 😉

Magical ~ Disney Layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis is another layout using Magical paper pack.  This one is also from my 2014 Close to My Heart Convention.  I am so excited to have completed these.  I actually used flip flaps to add more photos but since they are part of the new Annual Inspiration I cannot share them yet…..

Happy Crafting!

Layout #28 ~ Magical CTMH Convention

I realized I jumped to gun with my numbering last week and that should have been #27, so now I am on #28 :-).  Since I am still in that Convention mode and the Magical papers work well for Disney (as well as other layouts) I would get another Convention 2014 layout completed.

Magical Layout ~ Convention 2014 ~ CatScrapbooking.comFor this layout I used a bit of the papers but also three of the PML Cards which are include in the paper pack.  I also used the exclusive Convention 2014 stamp set on my layout.  It is so fun reminiscing about my first convention.

Sticky Boy

This past spring I sent a valentine to Sticky Boy back at Home Office of CTMH as part of a contest.  From those Valentines that were received 10 were selected to win a Sticky Boy!!! My card was one of those cards.  Since Sticky Boy really only appears at Close to My Heart Convention, I decided it would only be appropriate to bring him with me.  I designed this badge to wear while I was at Convention in hopes of finding him. Or at least celebrate those lucky few who did find him.

Stickyboy ~ Ctmh convention 2016 ~ Catscrapbooking.comTo make him I used the awesome Magical paper pack which is perfect for celebrating Disney!!

I am now home from convention and all I can say is WOW!!! I am so excited for all the fun and new goodies that will be coming your way August 1st.  I will be working behind the scenes to make some fabulous artwork with these new products. I can show you some sneak peeks on my Instagram account but will not be able to share anything here until August.

Happy Crafting!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “M”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “M” element will be featured in their post.

I suspect we will have a lot of MAGICAL participants in this hop.  Close to My Heart came out with a really fun paper pack named MAGICAL which will work well for anyone who has been to Disney!!  However this paper pack can really be used for anything as it is just fun with bright primary colors (check back on my blog over the next weekend).  I have been putting off doing my Disneyland photos and finally have the motivation to complete them.  I have to admit I totally lifted this layout from Pinterest and you can see my inspiration here.  This layout also keeps me on track with my personal layout challenge and brings me to layout #24.
