Heartfelt Sentiments Creative Challenge

My amazing upline and dear friend, Melissa R, challenged her team to create a card this weekend using a layout from one of our How-to-Books. I chose the Serenade layout from our Imagine book, page 36-37.

Of course in the book, this is a layout design for a 12x12 scrapbook page but the wonderful thing about these books are the versatility of them.  It is very easy to adapt these designs to a 6x6 card or page -- just simply cut all measurements in 1/2.  I loved this challenge and I think I will definitely be creating some more of these.

If you do not have these books, you NEED to get them NOW!!!! CTMH will not be selling them anymore after they are gone and they have a very limited supply.  (Don't worry, I know they will be coming out with something even better in the fall -- they always do when they retire a product!)

Here are the books that are available and a short description of each:

This is my favorite!!!!!
