Color My Heart Challenge Blog - Color Dare #120

I used Close to My Heart's Pathfinding Paper Packet with CTMH Olive & Chocolate cardstocks.

To embellish this 12 x 12 layout, I used CTMH's Stitch Guide with piercing tool & foam mat, CTMH's Damask Embossing Folder, CTMH Edge Distresser, CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge for the title, CTMH buttons (discontinued), embroidery floss from my stash and a Chocolate Zig Marker to draw out the faux stitching.

I used CTMH's Pathfinding Scrapbooking Workshop stamp set for the leaf with CTMH Olive ink.

This is the Title Page for my Thanksgiving/Birthday Celebrations album. My younger brother's birthday and my birthday normally land on or are near Thanksgiving weekend. So, we celebrate our birthdays and Thanksgiving together.

I did cheat a bit on this lagoon colour is in my grandpa's shirt in the top right corner. I really tried to bring some lagoon cardstock or patterned paper into this layout, but it just wouldn't work.

You may use any products to participate in the Color My Heart Challenges, but we encourage you to use CTMH products. For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday, December 04, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.

  1. Donna, the layering and stitching created wonderful textures in your beautiful layout!

  2. A fabulous layout! Love the stitching combined with those great papers! Such a fun project you have going!

  3. Nice page! I like that you didn't shy away from the somewhat busy background. It adds so much liveliness!
