There's Still Time!

No, that's not the name of today's challenge, but it is a call to action!  There is still time to play along with any of our June challenges, but only until tomorrow.  The link ups will close, and Team Canary and Team Thistle will have one final job to do before their design team term ends: choose the June Top 10.  You can't win if you don't play, so join us today!




We'll be back on July 1 to introduce our guest designer, and then we'll start introducing our July-December Heart 2 Heart Design Team.  Check back often for the latest news!

Nikka

If we've inspired you to hit the road, hit your craft room first!  Or maybe you're on the road?  Pick up a map from your trip and somehow incorporate it into a project to preserve that special trip.  Or maybe you're like me and just wish you were traveling right now?  Dream and craft on!

Remember that the only requirement to participate and be eligible for our Top 10, Top Chick, and Guest Designer spots are to use some Close To My Heart product on your project.  Thanks!

Warm vs. Cool Challenge

Welcome to the month of June! To start off this month, we have a colour challenge for you. The theme is Warm vs. Cool. How you choose to apply this is totally your choice - it may be in the form of a card, a scrapbook layout or some other project. However, you do need to use some Close To My Heart products in your creation.
You have the entire month of June to complete and link up your project. In the meantime, be sure to check out the inspiration from our design team below.

First up is our new June guest designer, April Watkins!










Try out your warm and cool skills with us at Heart 2 Heart and link up your creations below. We look forward to seeing what wonderful creations you share with us!
