Celebrate Good Times

As paper crafters most of us are scrapbookers or card makers and we are all about preserving the good times in our life, celebrating the little, big, eventful and even mundane times, it is what we do. This week at Heart 2 Heart we want you to focus on the Good Times...birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, promotions, weddings, and all the great events in life. We want to see your celebrations and good times.





We can't wait to see what you come up with for this challenge, the only requirement is that you use at least one Close to My Heart product on your project, of course the more the merrier. Lets take a look at the design team projects and hopefully there will lots of inspiration for you to draw from if you need ideas.











We hope that we have been able to share some inspiration with you and get you motivated to document those Good Times or create pretty cards to Celebrate Good Times with others!

This (and all of our July) challenge is open until July 31, 2019 at 11:59 pm, To play along, we just ask that you use at least one Close to My Heart product on your project but of course the more the merrier!

Color Challenge: Candy Apple


Welcome to the first post of July! 

It is a time of celebration in both Canada and the US this week - July 1st is Canada Day (obviously in Canada) and July 4th is Independence Day in the US. Both of these dates are of historical significance in the two countries and each has one thing in common - the colour RED!

Our challenge this week is a color challenge - and that is to use the color CANDY APPLE. 

Candy Apple is a Close To My Heart colour and it is a bold red. You may certainly use other colors in your project but we do ask that the FOCAL color is Candy Apple.

Let's take a look at how the design team used this color in their projects. 









It's the start of a new month at Heart 2 Heart - be sure to enter all the challenges in July 
and you could be a H2H Sweetheart! 

You have until the end of July to link up your Candy Apple projects below - be sure to use some Close To My Heart products. 
We can't wait to see what you create!
