Make It from Your Heart Blog Hop

Today we will show you how to “Make It from Your Heart”! Jeanette Lynton has created a brand NEW “how-to” program to not only guide you, but also inspire you to create beautiful artwork. This amazing publication has so many different pattern blueprints that you can interpret in ANY WAY you want!

Through our blog hop we hope to inspire you to use your own artistic instincts to interpret and create your own artwork. Each of our crafty consultants has chosen a different page of this book to create two projects for you – that’s right two projects with the SAME pattern! One project will follow the blueprint pattern as laid out. The second project will use the pattern “with a twist” to show you how versatile the patterns are.

We are having a giveaway – that’s right blog candy for you hoppers! Lucy of Love 2 Create will be giving away a copy of the Make It from Your Heart – Volume 1. All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on each blog.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should begin your hop at the beginning at Lucy’s blog.

If you came from Theodora’s blog, you’re in the right place!

Here are my projects! I used pattern 4 (pp. 12 and 13) from Make It from Your Heart, Volume 1 to create a scrapbooking layout and a card.

For both of my projects, I used the Dakota paper from Close To My Heart. I used some small black brads on my scrapbooking layout and the retired Rustic alphabet.

For my card I cut some buttons with the Artiste Cricut cartridge and arranged them similarly to the scrapbooking layout. You could use any shape with this pattern, and although it's originally a scrapbooking layout, it works for cards too! I used the stamp set Buttons, Bits, and Bobs for the sentiment, and I finished up the card with some black and brown floss and a little button from our Blue Buttons Assortment.

The next stop to "Making It from Your Heart" is
Stephanie at The Quilted Scrapper.
