Heart2Heart Challenges - Anything BUT a Card!

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is to make anything BUT a card!  I've had the idea in my head to make a leather flower pin for quite a while and this challenge finally got me moving on it.  I whipped out our Flower Market Cricut cartridge and picked a nice two layer flower for this project and slightly altered the Hibiscus cut from page 30.
I used a package of Cricut leather that I bought about a year ago and assembled on a pin backing using our Base and Bling Sticky Strips in our Going Soon area of our website.  The metal flower center is long since retired but perfect for this sweet mini project.
This little project came out exactly as I had envisioned it!  I think it will look great pinned to a cozy sweater or just to dress up a t-shirt like I'm wearing it here.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you'll join us at Heart2Heart this week and create a fun project!

Stay crafty my friends!

Heart2Heart Challenges - Non Traditional Christmas Card

This week we have a fun color challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges - create a non-traditional colored Christmas card!
This one combines Jeeper Creepers with our Whimsy Fundamentals for a pretty wild and fun Christmas card.  I used the Artbooking cartridge for the ornament cut and the tag is a sliced portion of a card from Artfully Sent.
To give the focal image some pop, I used our Shimmer Brush on three of the ornaments and the other two got a layer of Liquid Glass.  This one came out even better than I envisioned it would.  That is the great thing about challenges - they shake you up out of your routine and get you creating in a whole new way!

I hope you'll take the challenge and join us at Heart2Heart this week and create a non-traditional colored Christmas card and share your artwork with us!
