THICC Theme #125 starts 4 October 2022 DT Inspiration Card

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart is always excited when I get to use my creative skills to paper-craft! Crafting Christmas cards ranks up there in my top 5 favorite formats/occasions! This Christmas card is for The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenges blog #125 that starts October 4, 2022. 

THICC is an always anything Christmas goes type theme published every 2 weeks on Tuesdays. 

Merry Everything Card=


Did you notice the little ornaments hanging below the vertically-run washi tape? There are 2 washi tapes used on this, 4 patterned papers with 3 coming from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby, and the 2 sizes of silver embossed snowflake stickers have all been in my Christmas stash boxes for many years! The TPS papers say 2016 on them!!!

Once Upon A Time Challenge Blog DT project October 2022

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! It's exciting for me to combine paper-crafting and children's book into a design team project!

Once Upon A Time challenge blog's October 2022 starts on the 1st and the featured book/cover/contents must be evident in your linked submission. Take a look below for Deanne's October children's book!!!

Instead of doing a Halloween or monster interpretation of the book, I decided to go the Christmas route and have an elf instead of Grover from Sesame Street. I have bricks and a sign/sentiment block. The bow is a replacement for the street sign and the snowflakes replace the globe of the streetlamp. 

Take a look:


and here's the book cover for Once Upon A Time Challenge Blog:

MTTCC #44 Theme is Christmas For Kids

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! Honestly, I was dreading this because I don't have much 'kiddie' items in my stash but I had a Webster Pages circular baby/new beginnings themed layout size stickers sheet and the one with handprints reminded me of elementary school craft projects with kids' handprints! So that's what jumpstarted my circular kids Christmas card for my DT commitment for My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog's #44 theme!!!

Competition starts September 30, 2022 and ends October 13, 2022. 

 Penguins and Candy Canes Christmas card=


*white with gold metallic foil 'dazzle' of Merry Christmas= Paper Wishes website

*other items are from stash
