February Cross Canada Blog Hop with CTMH

Hi folks!

Welcome to our February Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring the I Heart Us collection from Close To My Heart. Whether you are a scrap-booker or card-maker, both of these collections have something for you.


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

If you are a frequent visitor then you know I tend to favour card-making so I have these cards to share with you today.




The inspiration for these cards actually came from a scrapbook layout in the new Seasonal Expressions Idea book. Go ahead, take a flip through and see if you can find which one! Psst - take a look at the WYW I Heart Us layouts.

I also used the Butterfly Friendship stamp and thin cuts bundle on this pair of cards.

Now - do you remember earlier when I said I tend to favour card-making? Well, I took the big step and signed up for the Craft With Heart12-month subscription back when it launched. My goal was to hopefully wind up with some layouts I could use in a scrapbook album for my parents upcoming milestone wedding anniversary. So here's the TWO double-page layouts for February featuring the "I Heart Us" Cut Above Kit!







Care to make a guess how long it took me to put these together? Just 45 minutes!!! For all four pages! Me! Who doesn't scrapbook!

Now - I'm still getting used to the whole scrapbooking thing so I just followed the kit instructions to  the letter. Maybe I'll branch out and start mixing things up as I do more of the kits. Or maybe I'll add to the pages as my parents anniversary approaches. We shall see. Either way, I think this subscription (which you can do a month at a time, four months at a time, or for a full year) is a great way to put together some great scrapbook layouts quickly!

So - 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 March 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!
