Saying Goodbye for Now

Here is a layout that I have been putting off completing as I struggling to find the right papers. I decided it was time just to let it go, as there may never be a perfect paper.

I have to say I am pleased the way it worked out. I used some papers from my stash one is a retired Close to My heart pattern. I used the stitched flowers with Daisy White, Goldrush, and Sage.

Hope you are finding the silver lining to the uncertain times we are experiencing.

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #366 ~ Tic-Tac-Toe Hawthorn

This week we have another Fun Color Dare Challenge for you.  This week for Color Dare #366 we have our popular Tic-Tac-Toe board this time it correlates to the Hawthorn paper pack.  For this challenge you can use any diagonal, row or column, you can add in any of the other colors shown.  Blacks & Whites are FREE but NO other neutrals.

I love the rich colors of the Hawthorn paper pack. They are great for fall photos. I started with the first column ~ Sangria, Charcoal, & Saffron then added Sage, Sapphire, Toffee, Paprika and Pebble.

I used the Hawthorn paper pack with the stickers to create this page. I also used the Hawthorn Complements for the journaling hexagon.

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 #366  or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Thin Cuts Blog Hop

Welcome to the Thin Cuts Blog Hop!!

You will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  For this hop we are featuring artwork which showcases our THIN CUTS. I am sure you will find a wide variety of inspirations on this hop.

If you are just arriving here from KRISTA HERSHBERGER’S Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 19 consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

I designed this first day of school layout using the So Much Happy paper pack. I also used Candy Apple, Lemon, Lagoon, Kraft, White, Clover, Linen, Sapphire, Black, and Charcoal. I used a couple Cricut cuts and my thin cuts.

I used the adorable Paper Pals Base and Paper Pals Boywith the coordinating thin cuts. Since the thin cut base is for kids and adults I cut the legs a bit so that the kid would be a bit shorter.  I also used a couple of the tags from the Fancy Tag Thin Cuts.

My son who is now 7 will sometimes like to craft with me. He was hanging out with me in my craft room while I was working on the layout.  He asked if he could play with this stamp set too.  I had to share his creation as I think is turned out super cute!! He even added a few of the Paper Pal Pets.

Your next stop is along this hop is MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Place Layout

I was able to play around in my craft room again this weekend ~ Yippee!!! I am finally getting to some of my stacks of layouts to complete done.  I pulled this one of my son and his first electric train set from 2013.  I pulled the Swan Lake paper pack which is now retired to work with.  I really like how it turned out.

The tittle comes from the Dreamin’ Big complements.  The white acrylic was not showing up so I colored them with my shin han marker.

Happy Crafting!
