No Rules!

Good Morning Crafters!  Today we are throwing down our final NO-vember challenge!

This week at Heart 2 Heart, our challenge was to design a project with, well, with NO RULES!  What ?!?!?  That's right, the only "rules" were that we use Close to My Heart products!  What a luxury!  Don't you just wish that life was that easy too??

First up, let's take a look at what our Guest Designer, Lilian Yeh Foryth of The Leaf Studio came up with:

NO Stamping

Hi everyone, it's Allie here at Heart2Heart!

This November our themes will involve "NO" to something. It's my turn to host this week and our challenge is NO stamping. How are you going to create your craft? Maybe you'll use one of our fabulous Cricut cartridges or a fun embossing folder? Maybe you'll get clever with some inking or layering of papers? Whatever your trick we can't wait to see what you create.

In the meantime, check out some inspiring creations from our Design Team.

Welcome to NO-vember!

This month, we here at Heart 2 Heart Challenges are celebrating NO-vember challenge: each challenge will have "NO" requirement to it, something you're NOt allowed to use or do.  Good luck and play hard!

Before I throw down our NO-vember scrapbooking challenge, please join me in welcoming our November guest designer, Lillian YF.
"I was born in Taiwan and grew up in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I have been married for 10 years and I have two little boys, a Sheltie (Jazz, the dog) and a Ragdoll (Angel, the cat).  I started stamping ten years ago and have been a consultant since 2013.


"Other random things about me... I love Arabian horses...I'm a chocoholic...I collect patterned papers and stamps...I am a "slow" crafter (it could take me 20-30 minutes just to make a card!)...but, if I'm inspired, I could craft all night long!

"I'm so happy to be back as a guest designer!  Can't wait to see everyone's creations this month!"

We're glad to have Lillian with us this month!  She is going to kick off our NO-vember scrapbooking challenge with this lovely layout:

Can you guess what our NO-vember scrapbooking challenge is?

The No-vember scrapbook challenge is NO B&T!  That's right, NO patterned, designer paper can be used on your photo project!  Sure, you can make your own B&T with card stock: maybe you want to stamp, score, crumple, or distress?  We can't wait to see your take on the NO B&T SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGE!
