May Cross Canada Blog Hop

Hi Folks!

Welcome to our May Cross Canada "Celebrating Relationships" Blog Hop.

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 Colleen's blog then you are in the right place!

This month we're all about celebrating the relationships in our lives - friends, family, loved ones - those who make an impact in our every day!

Today I'm sharing some cards that celebrate one of the first relationships we all have - the one with our Mom's. Mother's day was just a week ago so I thought I would share the cards I made for some of the special Moms in my life - there are quite a few.

Five cards in total - all using the following products from the new Seasonal Expressions Idea Book:

That's it for me! Up next is I'm sending you back to Michelle (we're a small crew this month).

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 June 15th on your calendar as we create with the "Colours of the Rainbow" in mind. 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!

Beautiful Friendship - Bad Influence

Hi folks

Just popping in today to share another card using the "Beautiful Friendship" collection from CTMH.

Since this card was for one of my dearest friends for her birthday, I just had to use this sentiment from the Documented cardmaking stamps and Thin Cuts set.

I hope it made her chuckle.

The layout for this card was inspired by this month's Viva La Verve sketch.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

CTMH Beautiful Friendship - Most of My Heart

Hi folks,

This month at CTMH we're showcasing the "Beautiful Friendship" collection. As it happens, I used those gorgeous papers (my favourite from the new idea book) for this card to celebrate 18 years with my dearly beloved.

I quite like how this one turned out.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

CTMH Beautiful Friendship Reasons to be Happy

Hi folks,

Today I'm sharing my favourite of the make and takes from the consultant launch party for the new CTMH Seasonal Expressions Idea Book.

This card features the "Beautiful Friendship" paper collection - quite possibly my favourite from this idea book. I liked it so much that I used it on all the Mother's day cards I made this year.  I'll share those sometime soon.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

CTMH Central Park - Walking on Sunshine

Hi folks,

I'm back again today to share another card featuring a new collection from the CTMH Seasonal Expressions Idea book that was launched on May 1st.

This one features the "Central Park" collection and was another of our make 'n takes from the consultant launch party. Looking at the photo of it now, I think it needs a little something below the sentiment. Maybe some bling or a zip strip. I might have to mod this one a little before gifting.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

CTMH Fresh Air - a reason to be happy

Hi folks,

I'm back again today to share a card featuring the new "Fresh Air" collection from the CTMH Seasonal Expressions Idea book launched on May 1st.

I think this is going to be a very popular collection with anyone who will be scrapbooking their camping adventures. For me, a card-maker at heart, it's going to be GREAT for masculine cards - and Father's day IS coming up in just a few short weeks!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

CTMH Documented Scrapbook Layout

Hi folks,

Well here is something you don't see from me very often - a scrapbook layout!

On May 1st, CTMH launched the new Seasonal Expressions Idea Book. Back in March. I attended a consultant launch event where we had the opportunity to play with the new collections.

One of the things we created (I'll be sharing the rest over the next few days), was this two page layout featuring the "Documented" collection. On these pages we used the papers, complements, and titles.

If you would like to recreate these pages, just let me know and I can send you the full list of products you will need to recreate this look.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
