Full Circle

Our final challenge for December, Full Circle, is a poignant one because we have made the difficult decision to discontinue throwing down challenges here.  We do hope that you will join us for one last hurrah as we go full circle!





Please join us for our final challenge!  We'd love for you to come full circle with us!

Recipe Exchange

 Welcome to our first challenge of November!  This challenge is a Recipe Exchange.  There are two ways that come to mind on how to approach this challenge.  First you can feature a recipe in you project or use a recipe to create your project.  If you break down the definition of a recipe it is actually just a set of directions.  So let's get crafty and create something to join us.

Check out what our Design Team has created as it may help spark your creativity! Please remember you need to use at least one Close to My Heart product in your design.

Haley Dyer

Let's see what you create!  Please share your creations with us.
