July 26th Heart 2 Heart Challenge

This weeks challenge is a color challenge.  The colors are:

If you would like to see the design teams entries Click Here and it will take you to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog.

Here is my try at this color combo.  After I made the card though I realized that what I thought was Vineyard Berry is actually Barn Red.  Oh man!!  I thought that I was doing so good too.  If I have time I may try it again with Vineyard Berry.
I used the CTMH stamp set D1373 Childhood Portrait for the main image.  Stamp set C1389 So Sweet for the sentiment.  The Creme Brulee B&T is from an old Key to My Heart Set.  The Vineyard Berry (oops Barn Red) B&T is from an old Felicity set.  I also used Blush Cardstock for the mats.  The ribbon is our Crocheted Ribbon in Colonial White.  Have fun playing along with the challenge this week!

Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Sorry that I have missed a couple of weeks of the challenges.  I find that I don't have my free time with my kiddos home all day.  Here is this weeks challenge, Click here to see the wonderful examples by their design team.

ABC - it's easy as 1-2-3....

This week our challenge is an ABC challenge - Anything But a Card!

Here is my example.  This is a bag that I made about this time last year for one of my clubs as a gift.

Here is the side view - showing the bag:

All I did was take a small white bag that I bought at my local craft store and I cut the top of the bag off to approx. 4".  I used my coluzzle circle and cut a circle out of Tulip cardstock.  Then I just cut off the bottom of the circle to make the purse flat on the bottom.  I decorated the cardstock using paper from the Animal Cookies paper pack, some ribbon and some buttons.  Then I adhered the white ribbon for the handles onto the outside of the bag and then adhered the cut-off circle on top.  Added a tag that says "for you" and you have a super easy and fast way to make a cute purse gift bag.
