August Cross Canada Blog Hop

Hi Folks!

Welcome to our August Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring the "Documented" collection from Close To My Heart.

If you've just hopped onto my blog, then you CAN start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada, then please start at the beginning at Michelle's blog. If you came from Michelle's  then you are in the right place!

This month we are featuring the featuring the "Documented" collection. Whether you are a scrap-booker or card-maker, this collection has something for you.

Since I am a card-maker, I'm sharing a few recent cards I have made with this collection.

For this first card, I took my inspiration from the suggested cards from the "Sweet Friends" card making kit.



This second card uses the same stamp set but has a more masculine feel (I think).



The next two cards were inspired by one of the bonus cards from the Documented Scrapbooking Workshop Your Way. I just changed up the papers resulting in one feminine card and one more masculine.





That's it for me! Up next is Diana!

Remember - if you get lost you can always head back to Michelle's blog.as she has the full list of participants.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we are able to inspire you in some way. If so, please leave us a comment as we love to hear back from the hoppers! We hope you are able to join us again next month. So be sure to mark September 10th on your calendar. And don't forget, you can reach out to your local consultant to purchase any of the items you see on the hop today!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Three little piggies

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share a card I made for the 3rd birthday celebration of one of our nieces. Her birthday party theme was all about Peppa Pig (she's a fan) so I thought this card would fit the bill.



card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches, white card stock base
  • patterned paper: CTMH Beautiful Friendship and Gimme Some Sugar
  • sentiment: CTMH (a birthday mini)
  • The piggy is from a very old stamp set from The Greeting Farm, among some of the first I bought probably.
  • layout is inspired by card sketch 707 on Splitcoaststampers
As always, thanks for stopping by!

July Cross Canada Blog Hop

Hi Folks!

Welcome to our July Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring the "Central Park" collection from Close To My Heart.

If you've just hopped onto my blog, then you CAN start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada, then please start at the beginning at Michelle's blog. If you came from Michelle's blog then you are in the right place!

This month we are featuring the "Central Park" collection. Whether you are a scrap-booker or card-maker, this collection has something for you.

Since I am a card-maker, my project this month is this birthday card.



I modelled this card after one of the scrapbook layouts in the "Central Park" section of the Seasonal Expressions Idea book. If you flip to page 41 you will see the layout that was my inspiration.

That's it for me! Up next is Krista.

Day 7 - 100 Days 100 Blocks 2018

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share my block for Day 7 of the #100Days100Blocks2019 quilt along.



Oh my goodness the pieces in this one!!

As always thanks for stopping by.

I think going forward that I will do a weekly post of the blocks completed for that week. Much easier than remembering to do a daily blog post on top of the official post to instagram.


Day 6 - 100 Days 100 Blocks 2018

Hi folks,

Oops! Looks like I forgot to post yesterday's block for the #100Days100Blocks2018 challenge.




This was an easier one - not too many pieces!

As always, thanks for stopping by!
