Heart 2 Heart ~ Out with the Old, In with the New

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

So we are changing things up at Heart 2 Heart, we are going to two challenges a month. I love the theme for the first half of the month ~ Out with the Old, In with the New! I think we are all ready to say goodbye to 2020 as this has definitely been a strange and challenging year for everyone. Interpret this challenge how you see it best. It maybe you are trying a new technique or using a new product.

I designed a New Years’s Eve layout saying goodbye to 2020. I used the new papers from the January/February Idea Book, the pattern paper is from the Seasonal Mix-in papers. I also finally opened my jar of Solar Flare Stickles Gel and used it with the sunburst stencil from Stencil Pack 3.

Here you can see the Stickles on the pattern paper. I also added some Golden Rod Stickles and Gold Embellishing Thread.

Here you can see where I used one of the Special Covid Stamp sets ~ On Repeat, that was released earlier in the year and then was just offered during Boxing Week Sale. I used Gold Glitter Paper, Black Ore Paper, and Gold Foil Paper. I used VersaMark Ink with Gold Embossing powder on the stamped image. The Champagne glasses, goodbye, and party hat were cut with my Cricut.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until January 31st 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!
