When Life Hands You Lemons

Join us in this fun challenge this week, and show us some "lemony"-type craftiness. When Life Hands You Lemons can be interpreted in many ways. Our CTMH colour Lemon is bright, fun, and easily compliments many colours. A big glass of Lemonade or a trip to the beach, let your imagination SOUR, pardon the pun, SOAR!

Link up your artwork with the Link below.

Check out the awesome artwork by our design team this week.

Because May ends in the middle of this week, we are extending this challenge only until Saturday, June 2.  You have time to enter any and all of our May challenges!  (Enter each challenge this month and you'll be recognized for Perfect Attendance.)  We love seeing what you create, so show us those lemons!

Color Challenge: Triadic Color Combinations

Welcome to Heart to Heart and a super exciting challenge! This week, it's all about color! We are challenging you to use a triadic color combination! If you already know what that is, terrific. If not, there is some guidance below to help you out...

A basic color wheel looks like this:

If you put an equilateral triangle inside the color wheel as shown below, it touches THREE colors equally spaced apart. That is a TRIADIC color combination. There are only four possible combinations. 

If you want to use Close To My Heart specific colors, a CTMH color wheel is shown below with those specific colors. Please note that the color wheel is oriented the exact same way as the ones above. 

{You can learn more at the Make It From Your Heart blog HERE if you're interested!}

Now, let's take a look at how our design team applied this concept to their artwork. 
See if you can guess which color combination they used! It may just be worth a visit to their blogs to see what they did :) 

Be sure to check out the other May challenges that are still open.
We can't wait to see your colorful creations!

National Scrapbooking Month

Thank you so much for joining us and welcome to another fantastic Heart 2 Heart theme Challenge.  This week's challenge is very special because it's all about "National Scrapbooking Month". During the month of May, crafters all over celebrate this special month.

There are so many ways to create scrapbooks ... traditional albums, pocket pages and digital albums to name a few. Scrapbooking is a way of preserving and sharing not only our memories but our families' recipes and traditions as well. Here at Heart2Heart, we invite you to share your way of scrapbooking and celebrate National Scrapbooking Month. Please remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product. If that product is not obvious, please add a product list.

Check out these wonderful projects our design team members created for this week's challenge.  

Hope you will be inspired by the projects created by the Design Team!  We'd love for you to leave a comment and link up before the end of the month, but don't be afraid to link up sooner so that you can make time for the other fun Challenges in May and earn a Perfect Attendance Badge. 

Each theme for May will be updated in our Blog Sidebar (top on the right-hand side) for easy access to the different theme challenges. Remember you have all month to play along with all of our May challenges.  Join us for our National Scrapbooking Month challenge and all of our May throwdowns.  Link up below for this week's challenge!
