Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring Sea Glass

Welcome to our November Blog Hop featuring the Colour of the Year, Sea Glass.  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 techniques that you would like to learn how to do, by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. 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 follow us across Canada, then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Corinna's Crafts, then you are in the right place!

This time of year I do several Christmas Card Workshops and one of the cards this year featured, Sea Glass.  As you can see, I used it as my background paper, and I also used the Sea Glass Glitter Paper for my large snowflake.  

Other products I used on this card are White Daisy Cardstock, Juniper Ink, and all the snowflake shapes can be found on the different CTMH Cricut Collections.  The beautiful Merry Christmas stamp is from the Very Merry stamp set (D1694) which is also available in French and Spanish!  I embossed the Sea Glass cardstock using the Snowflakes folder, and lightly sanded it to bring out the white core highlighting all the lovely snowflakes. The silver snowflake charm is from my stash and is a retired product from CTMH's Base & Bling Jewelry.

I am the very last stop on this Cross Canada Hop, but if you are still completing your trip, then you are headed back to the East Coast to visit Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products, and techniques seen along the way.  We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring projects created using ourTraditional and Non-Traditional Christmases.  So mark December 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #178

I love how sometimes I see a sketch, and I create my card/project almost exactly the same and then other times it turns into something that still has the base elements but is not at all how I had planned it! That happened with this sketch for AHSC.  I started out with so many ideas (good sketches do that, give you tons of ideas) and then while playing with my many ideas this card was the outcome. 

Products I used to create this card:

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #172

So several months ago I decided to take on a full-time program in Medical Transcription and while it is going really well and I am almost finished many things in my life have been neglected.  My paper crafting for one and housework for two!  Guess which one I miss more???

Anyways, I needed a little break today, and my husband needed a special card for a co-workers upcoming wedding, and I got to play!

Using this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts and the lovely but now retired Charlotte papers from Close to My Heart.  I was able to come up with this card that meets my husband's design input of that it should be "country, girly, and flowers."

Thank you for stopping by, and I truly appreciate your comments.  I hope that you get inspired and decide to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

Happy Crafting.
