Regatta

Regatta has an obvious nautical theme, but also has the potential to be quite versatile, giving us an opportunity to step outside of the box.  The Regatta collection and colors are the focus of this week's challenge.  We encourage you to take out the Regatta product line and share your creations.  Did you that not only is this the last week for our April challenges but also that it is the last week to purchase Regatta and the other great products in the Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog?

In an attempt to inspire you and encourage your participation in this week's challenge, here is some artwork from our Design Team.






Brandi R - crzy4scrapbooking

Link up to our Regatta Challenge and share your artwork, using Close To My Heart products, of course!  We look forward to seeing your creativity.

A Heart 2 Heart Sketch challenge

Here at Heart 2 Heart challenges we like to mix things up and so this week we thought we would bring you a sketch to play with this week. For many sketches are their go to when creating for others they present a real challenge. Remember the sketch is a guideline, flip it, move things around, it does not have to be exact, we like to see your creativity when it comes to our sketch! Remember, you project needs to have at least 1 Close to my Heart (CTMH) product on it!

Here is the sketch to get you started!
