H2H Challenge| Color of the year Julep

Welcome to my page! I blessed to have you stop by! Today I am posting my design for the Heart2Heart challenge: 'Color of the Year - Julep' If you love inspiration and or challenges, you are in the right spot.

Close to My Heart has some amazing products, and one of our new paper collections is called 'Hawthorn' I have used this paper to the max. My favorite is how it feels masculine, yet feminine at the same time.

Gearing up for an upcoming craft show, I created several of these super cute travelers journals. using one Hawthorn paper collection packet.

Paired with a pen, and some Hawthorn compliments these are ready for fall journaling on the go!

Now that you are inspired to jump in with both feet and use some of that BEAUTIFUL Julep color to accent your projects or be a stand alone feature.

H2H Challenge| The Little Things

Welcome to my page! I blessed to have you stop by! Today I am posting my design for the Heart2Heart challenge: 'The little things' If you love inspiration and or challenges, you are in the right spot.

Close to My Heart has some amazing products, and one of our new paper collections is called 'The little things' that being said, I am going to be a rebel and take the challenge in a different direction. 

Today's inspiration comes from a little coffee date with a friend, only to discover she desperately needed a pick me up! This coffee date allowed her so much comfort in being to relax, if only for a moment from the day-to-day mom stuff. 
So I created this card, to send her as a follow up...because it truly is 'The Little Things'
