What is your favorite Sketch?

This week's challenge here at H2H is to use your Favorite Sketch. Do you have a favorite? Or maybe 500? I don't know about you, but I tend to have more than one favorite sketch that I go to, both for cards and layouts!

So, this week, and until the end of the month, share with us your favorite sketch! You can enter more than one time, you know! So, share all of your favorites!!

Make sure you use some CTMH products in your creation; we wouldn't want you disqualified because you didn't follow the rules, right?

So, be you a cardmaker, scrapbook maker, mini album maker, or anything else, create! Share! Get in touch with your inner crafty self, and show us whatcha' got!

To start you off, here are a few creations from our talented crafty design team!

This fun shaker card by Alyson:

These two fun cards by Michelle Johns

This fun, sunny layout by Cat Nowack

And this beautiful celebration layout by Sue Bruch

Each of the photos will take you to the ladies' blogs, which will have more info, and probably even more photos for you on each project! Make sure to check them out and leave them some love!

Now, go and make your own crafty goodness with your favorite sketch, and then share it in the link up below!

Seasons Change!

It is official...Spring is here!  Here's hoping you are seeing signs of Spring in your neighborhood!

This week we are talking about the change in seasons.  What does this mean to you?  It can be the obvious beginning of Spring with Easter and other associated events (sports, vacations, etc.) Or it might be a four seasons type of project.  We at Heart 2 Heart are anxious to see how you interpret this theme and hope that you will link your project.  You have until the end of the month to do so...just remember to use at least one Close to My Heart project.

Now, please take a look at the inspiration from our Design Team!

You can't really make beautiful things without tools. We always dream about the perfect paper, the perfect stamp or the perfect color...but how about the perfect tool? What is that one tool that you just cannot seem to live without? What is the tool that is your go to?

This week at Heart 2 Heart we thought we would feature our Favorite Tool

Make sure you stop by each DT members blog to find out what their favorite tool it and please link up below and let us know what your favorite tool is!

Happy Crafting
