At Heart 2 Heart

It's Time To Stuff Your Envelopes
Heart 2 Heart has fun with envelopes this week. Envelopes can be used for
 hidden journaling on a scrapbook page, special notes on cards, 
a gift holder on a package, a mini pocket album, and the list goes on. 
Envelopes are a fun way to embellish a card or scrapbook page.
I made one of my favorite cards and envelope from the Artiste Cricut cartridge. 
I cut the card and envelope on page 72 of the Artiste Cricut booklet at 2 inches. 
I used the card as the "Mom" insert in the envelope for the focal point. 
Then I used my friend Aime's quilling tool technique to make the flower, 
added a few leaves and some trinkets. Now my card is ready for Mother's Day.
Now it's your turn to show us your favorite use for envelopes. 
Be sure to share with us at Heart 2 Heart.

Something New, Something Old

A Gift of Buttons to Behold
This week at Heart 2 Heart is all about buttons. So, I packaged up some
 new buttons and some old buttons in a treat cup as a special gift.
Buttons can be used as an embellishment, can take the place of anything round, 
can be the center of a flower, can top a tag, can be added to a cluster, 
can cover up a boo boo, can be eyeballs on a critter, or made into a shape. 
So grab your buttons and join the button fun this week at Heart 2 Heart.

A Dream Pop Sneak Peak

With a Birthday Celebration
 When the soon to be available Dream Pop paper pack arrived the
 colors all said "Ashley."  Ashley is my granddaughter that just loves color. 
These are her colors. So, when we celebrated her recent 18th birthday
 and grandpa printed the pictures of course they went with these papers.
Then this week I happen to run into a new challenge blog:
Rose Blossom Garden Challenge Blog. The challenge was to use the 
"Happy Birthday" key on the Artiste Cricut cartridge. Now that was good
timing. The new papers, the new challenge using the birthday key just
put me right to work. I used the two page layout pattern #1
from the Make It From Your Heart how to booklet. This is the left page.
Right page contains a paper pouch with the story of the birthday celebration.
Two page Layout using the "Happy Birthday" key on the Artiste Cricut cartridge.
I used the words Happy Birthday and the balloons. Today is the last day to take
the challenge at Rose Blossom Garden but tomorrow will be a new challenge.
Check back tomorrow at Rose Blossom Garden and join the fun.
