Everything but the Kitchen Sink!

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge...we are so happy you have joined us!

How will "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" inspire you?  A layout documenting a kitchen remodel or maybe a scrapbook page about your family Christmas cookie baking marathon?  How about using kitchen themed papers and embellishments for your card or layout?  Or possibly creating a card with layers and layers of paper and embellishments, using "everything but"...yes, you understand!

Our February guest designer, the talented Lisa Bzibziak, has a final fantastic project to inspire you.

We also hope you will be inspired by the projects created by the Design Team!

We will love to see your creations!  Please remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product.  If that product is not obvious, please add a product list.  While you have until February 28th to complete all the previous February challenges, you will have until March 3 to complete this one.  We are looking forward to being inspired by your creativity!

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge, "Sunny Days". We are thrilled you have joined us and look forward to seeing your creations!

There are many ways to interpret this theme whether you are wishing in a sunny day while it's cold and/or rainy where you are, working to spread some sunshine on a cloudy situation for someone you care about, or maybe blooming flowers. How do YOU interpret Sunny Days? We'd love to see!

Our Guest Designer for this week is Lisa Bzibziak from "Life of a BZscrapper" and she has shared a fun handmade card with all of us. Let it serve as your first point of inspiration...

And then check out these fun artwork creations shared by members of our Design Team.

"Make It From Your Heart" Sketch Challenge

Welcome to February and another month of fantastic Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  Our first challenge for the month is to use any of our four Make It From Your Heart sketch books to create something special.  Many of our Design Team chose the brand new, MIFYH Vol. 4, card sketch #23, but you can use any pattern that you'd like!  Feel free to copy something from any of our Idea Books.  Still not inspired?  Try this CARD SKETCH or LAYOUT SKETCH!  (You'll get a PDF to download with these links.)
