These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Hello, Heart 2 Heart fans!  Team Sunset is back on duty this week with a challenge that YOU are not going to want to miss!

This week's challenge is all about My Favorite Things!  Woooooo hoooo!  Interpret this one however you like, but as soon as I saw it, I headed for my shimmer trim and glitter paper!  These, you see are two of MY FAVORITE things to use when creating cards or paper projects!

I have a few other FAVORITE Close to My Heart products thrown in here, so let's see if you can spot them!  I decorated the cover of my NEW My Creations Kraft 3-ring Binder!  Christmas is another one of my favorite things, you see, so this was an easy crafty decision.  ;)  I am going to turn this 8 x8 binder into a place to keep our Christmas cards we receive each year.

Did you spot another of my favorites?  Yep--chevrons!  I used the Ruby Chevron Ribbon to decorate this sparkly gift box all wrapped up.  The tag and white overlay on the gift are cuts from another of my favorite things--my Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridges!!!  Sparkles on the tag, yep--another fave!

Here is the shiny fabulousness of the Green Glitter Paper...I really had to use it!  Know what I like best about it?  All the shimmer of glitter without the mess!  :)

A row of banners and snowflakes adorn the top edge of the binder.  Strips of shimmer trim in silver and red alternate with Pear and Lagoon CS (yep, two of my favorite CTMH colors!) 

I {heart} The Sound of Music!  I have since I was a kid watching it with my family that one day a year it was on TV.  To go along with the song (and my overall theme, what-do-you-know?) I added some snowflakes from my favorite line, "snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes!"
Some of the snowflakes are embossed with silver, and some are stamped in Lagoon and Whisper Ink with images from the Snowflakes and Frosted Workshop on the Go Cardmaking Kit My Acrylix stamps.  See all the bitty sparkles?

I had SUCH a wonderful time combining all my favorite Close to My Heart Products into one project for this challenge! 

I really cannot wait to see how you interpret this one.  Will you go with the age-old song lyrics for your project?  Will we see cream colored ponies or raindrops on roses?  Will you choose YOUR favorite things???  Can't wait to find out, so come and play with us over at Heart 2 Heart soon!


  1. We share so many favorite things--especially shimmer and Christmas!!! I love love love your album cover. The colors are awesome, the snowflakes are so delicate and detailed with the embossing, and the glitter is divine!

  2. Your sweet words mean the world to me, Jayma! Glad we share so many sparkly things! :)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
