Heart 2 Heart ~ Anything Goes

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

This week is a simple challenge….Anything Goes!! This means you can submit anything! Simply use at least one Close to My Heart product in your project and you are good to go!

I had a lot of request for a tag workshop so I have been creating a few tags to add to my monthly Card Workshop. I may even add an extra day so people to come make holiday cards and tags.

I love the Like Nobody Elf stamp and thin cut that is part of the Holly Jolly Cardmaking Workshop. The elf makes the perfect tag. I used my markers to color, but since the markers bleed through I cut a second elf and glued to back to hid the marker bleed. I also added a bit of sparkle with Diamond Stickles.

I am also loving the For the Tree stamp set with the coordinating Custom Ornament Thin Cuts. I used Gold Tinsel, Silver Tinsel, Red Tinsel, and Clear Embossing Powders.

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

Happy Crafting!

Ornaments ~ Designer Creations Mini Frames

Have you seen the adorable Mini Frames in the Holiday Expressions Idea Book??  These are adorable frames which can not only be used in you scrapbook layouts but can also be used at gifts.  If you look on page 32 you can see how they show the frames as ornaments.  I love this idea and sold them at the craft fair and plan to give them as gifts.  They are fabulous as they hold a 2″ x 3″ photo.

Pine Cone Ornaments

I have been making a lot of ornaments for the Craft Fair this month.  I love making these pine cones.  I made large ones last year which I display as part of my fall home decor.  You can find the link HERE.  I also made these pine cone ornaments last year but I don’t think I blogged about them.  Here are this years creations.

White Pines ~ Pinecones ~ CatScrapbooking.comDon’t you just love these?  I am sure you are now asking the question how can I make these… am I right?  Well let me tell you.  First you will need to start with these Styrofoam eggs 2 1/2″ X 1 7/8″.Eggs for Pinecones ~ CatScrapbooking.comYou will need lots of strait pins.  Then cut the paper you wish to use into 7/8″ x 7/8″ squares.  Then fold two corners in to make a point.  Next you will overlap the squares, refer to THIS LINK as I shows how to assemble and overlap squares.White Pines ~ Pinecones Ornament ~ CatScrapbooking.com~I cut the holly leaves with a SVG file on my Silhouette.  I found the holly at Hobby Lobby and it adds a nice dimension to the ornament.  I used hot glue to attach the ribbon, holly and leaves.

Happy Crafting!
