Technique Challenge: Sponging

Every crafter knows the importance of having some "tricks" in their toolbox.  For this challenge, we are focusing on sponging.  We can't wait to see what you create using sponging as a feature of your project.  

Here is our design team sponging inspiration:








We hope that if you didn't have a sponging idea already that we have inspired you to get creating!  Both of our May challenges are open until the end of the month.  Won't you join us?

Let's Celebrate Connections


Hello friends!

Michelle here, hosting your next challenge!

Crafting is all about doing something you love, and if it isn't for you, then it's for someone you love (or at least like more than a little!), am I right?

Well, this new challenge is all about celebrating those connections.  It could be scrapbooks with the memories of those connections, or cards (to be) sent off to those we love.  

Our design team has some great inspiration for you today!  We hope you enjoy, and that it sparks some creation in you!  We would love for you to create something, and link it up in the link party below!  We can't wait to see what YOU come up with!

Thanks for playing along with us!

Here are the inspiriting creations from our design team!

Thanks again for stopping by!  We hope to see what YOU come up with in the linky below!

Old and New

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart!

We all have old and new products in our stash. This challenge is about combining the two of those - use something old and something new on the same project. Please don't keep us guessing - identify the old and new products in your post write-up!

Let's take a look at how the design team interpreted this challenge. Please visit the design team's blogs for detailed information.

So it's not "out with the old..." - instead - USE something OLD and combine it with something NEW! 

We look forward to seeing your projects. You have until the end of May to create for this challenge.

What's Your Angle?

Hello! Welcome to the first challenge in April with H2H Challenges. Before I get to our first challenge of the month, it is my turn to say Hi and introduce myself. My name is Brandi Robinson and I am not sure how long I have been on the Heart 2 Heart Design team but it has been several years, definitely over 5 probably closer to 10, I guess in the 7-8 year range. I am a die hard scrapbooker who happens to make cards. I started scrapbooking shortly after I got married when I stumbled upon a scrapbooking store and told my husband we are going in. I was immediately inspired by the pages and paper and everything and thought, "wouldn't it be great to have a scrapbook of our first year of marriage?" He agreed and the rest is history! So I have been scrapbooking since 2003 and I joined CTMH in 2008 when I moved to Canada. I love all things paper crafting but my heart is with scrapbooking and card making is a very close second!

Now, time to talk challenges! This week our challenge is What's Your Angle? and the goal is to use angles on your projects. 

Now it is your turn to show us what you  create using angles. Just link up below by April 30th at 11:59 pm, you have a whole month to play along. We look forward to seeing your creations!

The Midas Touch ~ A Color Challenge: Gold

Welcome to our second challenge for the month of March!

I am Cat Nowak, one of the Design Team members here at Heart 2 Heart for two years now. I have been a Close to My Heart Maker for nine years this month!  I am a retired veterinarian.  My husband and I have one son who is in elementary school and keeps us on our toes.  We live in Colorado so we love taking in all the outdoor activities.  But that does not stop me from spending time in my craft room.  I was an exclusive scrapbooker until 10 years ago when I began making cards.  Now I love all paper crafts! 

 Our second challenge for March is The Midas Touch ~ A Color Challenge: Gold. Have fun with this challenge and add a bit of gold to your project. Please remember you can link up with us in a variety of ways ~ Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and many other platforms in addition to a blog.  We really hop you will play with us.

Here is what our Design Team has come up with to jump start your creativity.

Alyson Mayo

Now it is your turn! Create your project and link it up with us. Just remember to include at least one Close to My Heart product in your project. We can't wait to see what you create!
