October Hawthorn CTMH Cross Canada Hop

Hi folks!

Welcome to our October Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring the Hawthorn collection from Close To My Heart. Whether you are a scrap-booker or card-maker, this collection has something for you.

If you've just hopped onto my blog, then you CAN start here as this is a circular hop - and it turns out that this month I'm actually the start of the hop! Kind of fitting since I am originally from Newfoundland and I just returned yesterday from our easternmost province! If you got here from Kristine's blog then you are in the correct spot!

As usual, I am sharing cards I made with this month's feature collection.

The layout for this first card was scrap-lifted from a scrapbooking layout in the idea book. Do you recognize it? The image and sentiment are from the Hawthorn Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts set. Confession: I didn't use the thin cuts because my craftroom is STILL in transition and I don't know in which bin I packed my Cuttlebug. I WAS able to find my Nutmeg inkpad though!

For this second card, I fuzzy cut the hexi paper. I'm a quilter and a BIG fan of English Paper Piecing (which traditionally uses the hexi shape) so I HAD to use this paper. The stamps are from the "Giving Thanks" stamp set from the recent "Share the Seasons" Bundle (psst. I have extras of the stamp sets if anyone is looking because they missed out!). This card will be for spouse for Thanksgiving.

That's it for me! Up next is Brae

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 November 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!

I love both cards, but I really love how you cut along the edge of the hexagon paper, super cute.
