APTS Challenge Blog July 2021 theme is celebration

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart wants to celebrate anniversaries of loved ones! I missed a nephew's 5th anniversary about 2 weeks ago and have 2 coming in mid-July for a very good friend and for my brother. The clipart images for all three cards were ones I discovered online about 2 years that I paired with sentiments. I had intended that all three would be made with similar design layout but instead each have their own...too many supply choices or ideas swirling in my brain, I guess!

*APTS is A Place To Start challenge blog

*July 2021 challenge month

*theme = any kind of happy celebration

*starts Monday, July 5th


And each card separately scanned:

1. Enjoy the little things anniversary card on pink cardstock base=

2. It's the little things anniversary card on ivory cardstock base=

3. Every moment moth-ters anniversary card on sky blue cardstock base=

These were made for A Place To Start challenge blog design team inspiration:
