This week at Color My Heart's Color Dare, you have TWO choices of colour combos to challenge you.  The first is Creme Brulee, Goldrush, Olive and Twilight -- nice warm colours during this cold, cold weather.


The other colours are from CTMH's latest promotional kit Cloud 9 -- Lagoon, Sunset and Honey.  This is the one I chose. I like the brightness of the colours -- they made me smile.

Here are my two cards.  They are 4x3, so perfect for just a little note of friendship.



I used the Cloud 9 papers as I've been waiting for the opportunity to play with them all month.  And the adorable little teddy bear stamp is from Pointer's Gifts and Crafts, located in Markham.  They have their own line of stamps with a really fun style.  This teeny tiny bear is just so cute, I couldn't resist him.

Now it's your turn!  Pick a colour combo, create something fun and fabulous, and enter to win at Color My Heart's Color Dare!

I received my first shipment of new product last week and have been playing, playing, playing.  First up to show all of you is the collection of cards I've designed for my "Pick a Wish" card workshop.


PICK A WISH CARD WORKSHOP
Sunday, February 9 at 1:30pm
Make 16 cards (4 each of 4 designs) with sentiments you add later
Plus a File box to keep them in
$30 per person
Add the "Banner Wishes" stamp set for just $10 more
RSVP to justscrapit.ctmh@gmail.com to reserve your spot!

Pick a wish?  What's that?  We'll create 16 cards and prep a variety of sentiments -- but don't glue them on yet!  Keep them in the pocket of your file box and choose the right sentiment when you go to send the card.  This allows you more flexibility and it helps you share your artwork at every occasion!

These cards use the new "Ariana" papers.  I love all of the papers in the new Idea Book, but I'll be honest, at first, this wasn't one of my favourites.  But the more I played with it, the more fun I had and the more beautiful the cards became.  And to keep them versatile for either gender, I added the Artisan Studs -- not too bling-y but still finishes them all off.






I hope you can make it out to my workshop on February 9th.  Come play with new products, great CTMH stamps and me!!  RSVP to reserve your spot today.

This week at Color My Heart, we have a 5-colour challenge for all of you!  This challenge uses: Cranberry, Juniper, Honey, Smokey Plum and Sunset.


And when you see all of the different DT creations at Color My Heart, you'll be amazed not only by the wonderful talents among us, but by how the project takes on a different look and feel, depending on which colour you choose as the dominant one.  I also like the vibrancy of this colour combo and how the creations really pop!

Here's what I made:  Tiny Treat Boxes


These tiny little treat bags were made using CTMH's Artiste Cricut Cartridge, cut at 2.5" on Cranberry cardstock.  They folded together easily!  Then I used the Honeycomb pattern stamp from the "Reel Life" stamp set to incorporate all of the colours in a rainbow-like pattern.  I mounted it on a Sunset strip and then placed it on the front and back of the treat box.  These adorable plaid flowers matched perfectly and provided just the touch of bling that these boxes needed.  Two little chocolate bars or Hershey's nuggets will fit nicely inside.


Now it's your turn!  Get out your inks, stamps and cardstocks and see what you can make using Cranberry, Juniper, Honey, Smokey Plum and Sunset (or similar colours).  Then post your creation at Color My Heart's Color Dare and see if you can win this week's challenge!  Happy Creating!

Today, I say good-bye to a well-loved, well-used, special part of my crafting life.  My trusty Cricut cutting machine, "T.C."  (for Teal Cricut) passed away on Wednesday, after more than 2 years of living and thousands upon thousands of cuts. 



 It was a hard-working member of my crafting "team" and I will miss it's cheery, bright, colourful-ness sitting on my counter.  T.C., rest in peace in that craft room in the sky.  Thank you for helping me save SO much time cutting for workshops, and for enabling me to maximize my creativity with all that you can do. 

Good-bye T.C.  You may be replaced, but you won't ever be forgotten.
