I Heart Us

This week's challenge is all about "I heart Us!"  Now, this could be using the CTMH paper pack with the same name, or the photos that show how much love you have for those people in them, or any number of things.

To play along with us, just show us how you use the theme and use some CTMH product in your creation!

To give you some inspiration, let me show you some fun items that the design team has come up with.





Hopefully the great artwork above gives you some ideas on where to start! Each lady has some great information on her blog about her fun creation! Make sure to check them out, and feel free to leave them some love, too!

Use the link up below to share your artwork with us! You have until the end of the month to create something fun and share!

Favorite Recipe

Happy February!  Welcome to our first February Heart 2 Heart Challenge entitled, "Favorite Recipe." Do you have a food recipe, and related photo, you've been meaning to scrapbook? Perhaps it's a sketch recipe, of sorts. However you choose to interpret the theme is up to you but we do hope you'll do so and link up to this post, sharing your "Favorite Recipe" artwork. Be sure to incorporate some Close To My Heart products in your papercraft item.

For a little jumpstart on inspiration, here are some creative items provided by some of our Design Team Members. Be sure to visit their Blogs, provided through the links, so you can see their connection to the theme.

Join our creative fun and link up to this Heart 2 Heart Challenge! We look forward to seeing what you share!

Love of Color

Everything I do, I do for love . . . of color!  I know you love color too, right?  Maybe you have your own favorite color scheme, or just one set color, or maybe you love them ALL!  This week's challenge is all about the love of color!

Show us your love!  Bring a project that showcases your love of a specific color scheme, go for monochromatic, invite ROY G BIV, or, if you don't know where to start, you can always take a page out of the "For the Love of Color" book, by Close To My Heart. 

Let's take a look at the projects created by our design team! 

We hope to see you join us in sharing our Love of Color! 
Be sure to use at least one Close To My Heart product in your creation.  Remember that you have until the end of the month- coming soon!- to join us.
