Colour us Crafty!

This week it's all about colour! We're challenging you to come up with a project that uses the Lagoon, Pear and Sunset colours from the Close To My Heart colour palette. We don't know about you, but we LOVE to stretch our crafty imaginations by coming up with new colour combinations to try. Have a look through all the wonderful new products we're sure you've got from the new catalogue and use anything you'd like in your project. Just be sure to use Lagoon, Pear and Sunset (or colours that are really close!) as your main colour focus!

We here at H2H love to see what YOU create so come on and share your art with us. You have all month to play along with any of our August challenges, so show your crafty self off. You could be chosen as one of our Top Ten for this month or maybe even as Guest Designer for next month!

Now to get things started here, let's see what our wonderful guest designer this month, Lori, has created:


Next up is the talented Team A's inspiration for you this week. Don't forget to check out our Design Teams' blogs by clicking on their names each week. They have lots of inspiration for you every day! Caroline starts us off this week:

Are you inspired? We sure hope so. Now it's your turn!  Remember to use some CTMH products and Lagoon, Pear and Sunset as the colours in your creation and upload your project to your blog or an online gallery (use the keyword H2H.AugustColour). Please consider turning off word verification for comments. We love to leave comments on your blogs but it can be difficult to get around to everyone when we have to guess at those tricky words and numbers! If you're concerned about spam, try using comment moderation for your blog.

Here are just a few things to remember when playing along:

  1. Use mostly Close To My Heart products, though it doesn't have to be 100%.
  2. Create your colourful project.
  3. Post your project to your blog or other online gallery.
  4. Come back here and link directly to your blog post and to not to your blog home page.
  5. Mention Heart 2 Heart somewhere in your blog post showing that you're playing along with us and make sure to link to our site.
  6. Why not grab an H2H badge to add to your blog? We'd love to spread the word and see more crafters participating!

Have fun and we can't WAIT to see what you've shared with us!

Thanks for this challenge and it was a challenge for me. Couldn't seem to see Pear and Lagoon together, but I liked it when I was done.
