heARTful stamping challenge – anything goes!


This week’s theme and monthly prize

Anything Goes + a stamp

Feb 26 – Mar 5

This week’s heARTful stamping Challenge is an easy one – it’s Anything Goes…but please be sure to use  stamps in your project!  You can find last week’s challenge here.

Throughout the month I have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc.  There are weekly Top 3 winners and a random winner from all of the participants receives the monthly prize drawing.  I have been working on becoming more “organized” as I start my CTMH business (I’ve been stamping over 11 years now!) and I came across this new and uncut rubber cling set I have that is perfect for this month..  February’s random prize winner will receive this rubber stamp set …

This Week’s Inspiration

Cyndi is back this week – woohoo!  I know you’ve missed her creative ideas, I have!  Cyndi is an avid scrapbooker so she was particularly excited when I joined CTMH. 🙂  She sent me this Title Page she’s been working on in her “free time”.  It features CTMH designer paper (retired) and little Aqua Dots that are now on CLEARANCE and marked at a great price!

Close To My Heart Scrapbooking

supplies: CTMH patterned paper (retired), Aqua Dots (on Clearance while supplies last)


Sometimes I come across a card that I absolutely LOVE but I want to change it slightly to make it my own.  That happened to me when I came across a card created by CTMH Consultant Denise from Australia…over at Scrap Stamp Share.  I used different papers but when with her color scheme…it’s wonderful!  The Stripe Embossing folder is just one of a few CTMH embossing folders on CLEARANCE for an amazing $3.15!  I have really been using my Shower Flowers from CTMH a lot this week.  In case you missed it, I love the CAS card I created for last week’s heARTful stamping challenge using a different flower from that set.

 Close To my Heart, Shower Flowers

supplies:  Shower Flowers stamp set, Happy Everything stamp set, White Daisy, Sugar Rush paper,  Rasperry and Willow cardstock, Black, Willow, Cranberry and Blossom ink, edge distresser, Stripe Embossing folder (on clearance while supplies last)

 I hope you join us!

  1. Like the scrapbook layout page w/ a wonderful sun over the water photo and the stamping to set the sea life scene. Like the floral card w/ the green striped embossed paper that makes the card even more attractive. 1st wk of work at my new job at Calloway’s Nursery went good & I have my schedule for this wk which is Mon – Fri so I’ll be busy so today I’ll be crafting. Hubby will be busy planting the vegs & herbs we bought yesterday in the raised beds he worked so hard at getting ready last wk.

  3. Trying to catch up on some blogs with my busy nursery work schedule which was M-F 7am – 3pm last wk & same for next wk. Wanted to know if the Feb winner for the mth had been announced. I decorated my locker (they are like vintage high school lockers) with a Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow photo so far and going to add some Bees & Flowers (appropriate for a plant nursery). I’ll post a photo of my locker on my blog soon.

    • Melissa – actually we are just finishing up Feb’s challenge – it was an Anything Goes theme and since it posted in Feb, I will announce the winner tomorrow. It does get confusing (I just had to remind myself because I even was momentarily confused!) when the last challenge overlaps two months.
