Heart 2 Heart ~ All You Need is Love

Welcome to the first of February Challenges at Heart 2 Heart!

Our first challenge of February is one that is perfect for our upcoming holiday ~ Valentine’s Day. We realize everyone does not celebrate Valentines but I think we all can celebrate LOVE! So make a card for a love one or design a scrapbook layout to celebrate someone you love. Just remember you must include at least one Close to My Heart product.

For this challenge we are partnering with friends over at Double Trouble for Challenge #76. To link up with them you can simply click HERE.

I decide to make a valentines card as I enjoy sending them. I did follow along with Thing 1 using the recipe ~ 3 Embellishments, 2 Patterned Papers, and 1 Stamp or Digital Image. I also added Thing 3 optional twist to add hearts.

I did color the three wooden hearts with Picked Raspberry Oxide inks. The hearts are left over from a couple of the the Heart Background Thin Cuts from a prior project. I also used a bit of Glitter Glue inside the open wooden heart. Here are the items I 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!!

Happy Crafting!
