Heart 2 Heart ~ Blue Belle

Welcome to another Heart 2 Heart Challenge!

This week our challenge is Blue Belle which is the Color of the Year for Close To My Heart. This is one of my favorites so far! It is so pretty and works wonderfully for winter in my opinion. I designed a fun layout for this challenge. Please remember if you are going to play along please be sure to include at least one Close to My Heart Product.

I designed this layout using the Make It From The Heart Volume 3, pattern 15. I used the Seasonal Mix-in Papers.

I realized I forgot to print one of my photos so I used a place holder for now. I used a white spray paint which is in my stash for the splatters on the Blue Belle cardstock. I used Sapphire cardstock to back the photos. I cut the Sledding fun with my Cricut using Blue Belle Glitter paper and French Vanilla Cardstock. I used the fun Elegant Snowflakes Stamp and Thin Cuts. I stamped the snowflakes in Blue Belle then used the Blue Belle Shimmer Pen and some Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue.

I also used some Blue belle shimmer trim at the top of the photo blocks. I love these colors as they coordinate so well with my son’s coat.

Now it is your time to create something and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until November 30th 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!

Snowflake Layout ~ Winter Fun

Ready for another snow layout?  Here is one I did using the now retired Close to my Heart snowflake thin cut.

For this layout I used White and Sea Glass glitter paper.  It is a simple layout but I really love the way the snowflakes turned out.  I did add some white splatter to the background to look like snow.

Happy Crafting!

Snow Fun Layout

I have actually been able to get a few layouts completed over the holidays.  Here is another layout completed.

For this layout I used a paper pack I had in my stash but I do not remember the name as I have been hanging on to it for about 5 years.  I did use the CTMH retired snowflake thin cuts.

Happy Crafting!

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ M

Welcome to the Everything ABC’S Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog Hop

For this hop 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.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from DARLYS RECKER’S Blog  then you are in the right place.   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 Linda’s blog HERE.

I wanted to get back into working on my layouts so I looked through the ones I have ready to scrapbook and see if any would work for the letter “M” .  I realized I had photos from our trip to McCALL, ID from MARCH and I could use a M sized stamp set ~ Single Snowflake M1031 (retired).

Snowhaven ~ ACBs M ~ Snow layout ~ Snowflakes ~ catscrapbookingFor this layout I used Glacier for the base pages and Snowhaven for the pattern paper.  I used Snowhaven compliments with a little touch of red shimmer trim.  I stamped a couple of the Single Snowflakes and then used white embossing powder.  I also cut snowflakes using my Artbooking cartridge. I used whisper for some of the snowflakes but highlighted them with a white pen.
