H2H Challenge–It’s Sketch Week

Welcome to a new week of fun! This week’s Heart 2 Heart Challenge is to use the provided sketch to create a project using mostly Close To My Heart products.


Well, if you know me…I ALWAYS use Close To My Heart products…nothing else…literally! Yes, I’m loyal to the Close To My Heart brand and I’m proud of it!!!

This week as I was thinking about my project…I looked around for something different to create other than a card using this sketch. I just picked up some photo frames at Hobby Lobby last week for 50% off and thought I could create a cute project using the October Stamp of the Month, Holiday Magic along with our new Christmas kit, Believe.


It’s hard to see in the photo above, but I did stamp some 2nd generation snowflakes in Sky ink on the White Daisy cardstock…maybe you can see them below.


I stamped ‘’Tis the season to…’ in Sweet Leaf ink and cut the letters for ‘CELEBRATE’ using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge along with the focal point layering.

You can probably tell the Sweet Leaf stitched ribbon is hanging over the frames edge…which means I took the glass out of the frame so I could add some dimension.

I’m really pleased how my project turned out this week and can’t wait to play with my October Stamp of the Month more!

Now…it’s your turn! I’d love to see what you create with this week’s fun challenge! Check out the details below…
