Shake It Up

Shake It Up can be a shaker card, a tag, an ornament, planner embellishment, etc. and are fun and can be great gifts for any occasion or sentiment.  You don't have to do a shaker card, but you do have to use at least one of the CTMH products.  Let's see how you will "Shake It Up".  


To get your creative juices flowing here are our DT's inspirational projects:








Now it's your turn to share your project and you have until the end of the month to link up with this or any of our December challenges. We can't wait to see your creations!

Photo Inspiration

Welcome to the first December challenge at Heart 2 Heart!

We have a perfect photo to start off the month! It's simply gorgeous...


Use this photo to inspire your project! 
Maybe it's the subject.
Maybe it's the colors!  Suggested Close To My Heart colors are:
  • Charcoal
  • Heather or Toffee
  • Glacier
  • Lagoon
  • New England Ivy
Maybe it's something completely different. How you interpret this photo is what matters. 
It would help us if you provided some indication of what interpretation you chose in your post (colors, subject, etc.) 

Let's take a look at how the design team used this photo to develop their projects. 













With such a beautiful photo awaiting your attention, we can't wait to see what you create! 
Don't forget to use some Close To My Heart products in your project.
