How To Join Us/Link Up

We are thrilled you follow the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog and love to see your wonderful artwork! While we have scaled back on the number of challenges each month, it’s with the hope participation will increase and that you can join in on all challenges this year. We realize everyone is busy and thought that an opportunity to focus on creating for fewer challenges would be beneficial to all, especially during these unusual times.

Are you not a blogger but do create artwork while incorporating Close To My Heart products? If so, DID YOU KNOW you can link up to us using other means? Through InLinkz, you can also participate by using:

  • Facebook
  • Instragram
  • Twitter
  • Pinterest and...
  • You can even upload photos directly!
While some platforms would not allow others to comment as easily on your artwork (i.e. if someone is not your FB friend), there are feasible options. Consider joining in on the CREATIVE FUN as we love seeing what you have to share!
If you have any questions about this, you can leave a comment below and we will assist you. You are also welcome to contact us on our Heart 2 Heart Challenges Facebook Page!
We look forward to increased partipation in 2021! Will you join us?!

Technique Challenge: Add a Border

Hello friends!  We hope you are doing well and getting a little crafting time in.  We have another challenge for you this month. This technique challenge requires you to Add a Border.

Borders can add so much to a design.  You can stamp, die-cut, tear, and draw borders - the possibilities are only limited to your imagination.   Whatever you chose to do, we just ask that you share your Add a Border creation with us here at Heart2Heart.

Here are a few ideas to inspire you created by the Heart2Heart Design Team.


Aren't they just fabulous?! We hope that you choose to join this challenge and share your Add a Border Creation with us. Make sure to upload your design before February 28th. 

We can't wait to see what you create!  Join us before the month ends!
