Cut It Up Challenge #297 Have a Heart

Hello and happy Friday! I hope all of you are safe and well. We are having tons of rain in CA right now and there is lots of flooding, mud slides and devastation in the whole state. Thankfully, we are o.k. but there are folks who have lost everything in these storms.

This Saturday, I am attending a virtual all day card making event with SCT. I'm really looking forward to this event and making lots of new cards.

This week our Cut It Up challenge is Have a Heart. Use a heart on your projects. Since Valentine's Day is next week, I decided to make these Hershey bar holders for my co-workers. They were very easy to make. (I found the instructions on Pinterest)


Paper: Echo Park
Ribbon: Michaels
Heart Die: My Creative Time
Stamp: Close to My Heart

Cut It Up Challenge #295 - A New Year (Use a new tool, technique or craft item)

Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed your holidays. 

I took some time off from the design team because my sister passed away unexpectedly in November. We are all devastated and I miss her every day. It is really true about living every day to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.

This week was the first time I was even able to go in my craft room to make a card. It actually made me feel better as this room is usually my happy place. I'm looking forward to being back for 2024.

Our Cut It Up challenge this week is A New Year (use a new tool, technique or craft item). I have a new stamp set that I bought a while ago but never used so I decided to make my card with that set:

Paper: Lawn Fawn
Stamps: Pink & Main
Circle and banner dies: My Creative Time
Snowflakes: Recollections
Markers: Spectrum Noir Tri blend markers 

I hope you will join our challenge. Remember to use a die cut on your project. You can check out all the other amazing design team projects at Cut It Up.
