Hopscotch - A blog hop

Welcome to a new month of the Heartfelt Sentiments Team Paper Focus Blog Hop!  If you are coming from Melissa's blog then you are definitely on the right track!  As you can tell, this month we are creating with the Hopscotch Paper Packet.
For my layout I used 3 different pieces from the packet.  I decided to layer my squares on a darker piece to help them stand out more, so I picked Indian Corn Blue cardstock out of the coordinating colors in the patterns for my mats.  It's so handy that Close To My Heart lists all the colors used in the paper on the back of the zip strips! I then added a few of the Hopscotch Compliments and some of the cute white enamel stars to complete the layout.
Thanks for stopping by today!  Not hop on over to Aggie's  blog to check out her creativity!

Opposites Attract

This week over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges we are working with opposites.  Kind of boggles the mind to begin with....but that's what challenges are for, right?
I have pinned several "opposite" cards like this and have been waiting for the opportunity to create one.  For my card I chose the Heartstrings paper and used one pattern piece and one cardstock.  The butterfly is cut with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  The butterfly is actually cut out of each paper then applied to the opposite side on the base pages.  My sentiment is from some very retired rubons that I found while unpacking (it's just like Christmas in the studio right now).

Thanks for stopping by today.  You have all month to create and share your opposite project with us at H2H - we can't wait to see what you have come up with!

Good morning everyone! I'm back with another great challenge from Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog.  This week we were challenge to interpret "enTWINEd".  To find out more about the challenge visit our blog.
I decided to stick with the Twine portion of creating these cute little lollipops.
My semi-annual retreat is coming up soon and I like to make each of my retreaters something cute to mark their cropping spot.  I think these lollipops will be the spot feature at the retreat.  I will find something special to put them in...maybe a tiny flower pot, or a jar of chocolates - something - and set them with the rest of the goodies at each spot.  These are super easy to make.  I used a pre-cut  1 1/4" adhesive circle to wrap my baker's twine around then attached each circle to a colored swizzle stick, wrapped some green washi tape around the stick and applied the name label to the tape.  It's a good thing these are quick to make cuz I have quite a few more to make before the retreat!

Thanks for stopping in today.  Be sure to share your interpretation of enTWINEd with us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!
