Awesome - AHSC 252

Another post, I am on a roll this week! Today I have a card I made using one of the Sketches from the AHSC. I love this challenge as it is truly a springboard to a lot of my cards. The minute I saw this High Five set I knew I just had to have it. I love the fun nature of it and the palm for the high and the thumbs up, just so cute.

Happy Easter - H2H challenges

This week at Heart 2 Heart challenges we are bringing you a sketch challenge. You can use any sketch from any Close to my Heart Sketch or inspiration book. Do not have one that is fine, take any project from the current Idea Book or Seasonal Expressions Idea Book and use it as a guide and make it your own!

Here is my project. I just the CTMH Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 book. it is pattern 1 on pages 6 & 7. I can not picture it here for copyright reasons but if you have this book you will see I altered my layout a bit. Instead of a 9 1/4 X 7 3/4 photo I changed it to a few 4 X 6 and 4 X 3 photos. I also changed the 2 1/4 square on the right hand page with
3 X 3, my customers prefer larger photos and since I am using this for one of my workshops, I want to work to make them happy!

Fine & Dandy

This week at Heart 2 Heart challenges our theme is Fine & Dandy, and after some discussion about what that means I decided to go with this layout I did for our Silver & Gold workshop that we did last month. To me Fine & Dandy represents nice things, fancy things, and the family so what better way to celebrate with pretty sparkly glitter paper and family and Christmas traditions.



Products used:

Paper:
- Silver & Gold
- Black, White Daisy and Silver Glitter paper

Die Cuts:
- All done on the Silhouette Cameo

Thanks for stopping in and checking out my work, as always I welcome feedback. We would love to have you join us at H2H challenges by clicking here!
