Pumpkin Spice

Welcome to our last October Heart 2 Heart challenge - Pumpkin Spice.

It seems like once October hits in the North America and much of our countries have leaves turning colors and falling off trees, and everyone gets super excited about pumpkin everything. We thought it would be fun to see how you interpret this challenge be it the color orange or pumpkins or something with some spice or anything else you can whip up. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Lets take a look at what the design team came up with.

This is the last week to link up with this or any other October challenges:
  • Glitter and Glam!
  • October Sketch Challenge
  • Holiday Expressions 2
  • Photo Inspiration and Color Challenge
Because the month ends on Wednesday, we've extended this week's challenge ONLY until Saturday the 3rd.  Otherwise, you have until October 31st at 11:59 pm to join the other October challenges. Remember you must use at least one Close to my Heart product on your project. We can't wait to see what you come up with.

Glitter and Glam!

Hello, Crafty Friends--
This is Laurie from Crafty Sisters Creations to introduce the challenge theme for this week here at Heart 2 Heart.  It's all about GLITTER and GLAM!  One of my favorite sayings is "When in doubt, add Glitter!" so this theme is right up my alley.  This challenge will give you the chance to really glam up your artwork with Glitter Paper, Shimmer Brushes, Tinsel Embossing Powder, Shimmer Trim and anything else that will add that special bit of bling!  Take a look at what the Design Team created--

Please share your artwork using the link below and don't forget about the other challenges that are still open for October--Color Challenge, Holiday Expressions and our Layout Challenge.
