Canadian Blog Hop featuring March/April Catalogue

Welcome to our March/April Blog Hop featuring artwork created using new and fabulous products found in our current catalogue. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers... whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do... Thank you! Now on to our hop:
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to start at the beginning join Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Kim's Scrappin' With Heart then you are in the right place 🙂.
I am in a group that started doing monthly challenges and the challenge this month is to use only cardstock. Because there is no pattern paper on this layout I decided to use the ripping technique to give it some texture. I used a stamp set from the new catty called 'Eat Play Love' and, yes, it comes with thin cuts. It doesn't matter how many mason jar stamps I have, I love everyone of them 💜. I think that it finished the layout nicely, along of course, with the red glitter gems I added. Sorry to say that the red glitter gems is an old product that I used. I just needed that extra bling as this layout is a gift. Eat Play Love - Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts - Z3924 Cardstock - Various colours of our White Core Cardstock

Your next stop on the Canadian Blog Hop is "Brae “of "The Brae-er". Hope you enjoyed
my blog.  It's been a long time since I've done this.  Like I mentioned above feedback is welcome and please click to follow me. I hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We'll see you again on May 20 for another hop along.


If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle's blog My Creations with Michelle 
as she has the complete blog list.

Take care!

A Retirement Box Card

I created a box card for a friend that was retiring using Close To My Heart Little Dreamer paper that I still had a stash of.  I think it turned out pretty good.  This is an old post that I just realized I never published so just check it out.  Thanks 😃.
