Announce big news in a big way

This year I hope to send combination Christmas-We’ve Moved cards. We expect to close on a house we’re buying before the end of the year.

This week’s challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges is to use a product from the Close To My Heart Holiday Expressions Idea Book. You can purchase items in that book through the end of December at my site.

I chose the White Pines paper pack to make a card that tells friends and family we’ve moved. I also used the Close To My Heart exclusive Cricut cartridges Artistry and Artbooking. The “Be” was part of a title, “Just Be”, and the “for” was part of “Always & Forever” — both on the Artbooking cartridge. I just cut off the parts I didn’t need. The “We’ll” I welded together using Cricut Design Space. That little dog in the window represents our beagle Phoebe! And it’s a stamp! I stamped the dog silhouette image from the Love My Dog stamp set and then used a photocopier to reduce it until the image was small enough to be proportional to the window.




Today is the last day of November but it’s the first day of the December papercrafting challenges at  Heart 2 Heart!

Make something using Close To My Heart product from the Holiday Expressions book, then link up your project at Heart 2 Heart. You might just win some recognition for your skills. Happy crafting!
