August 2016 CTMH Cross Canada Blog Hop



Welcome to our August Blog Hop featuring Our Favorite New Products from the NEW Annual Inspirations catalog.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to hear from you....whether it was something that you really liked or a technique new to you 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 mycreationswithmichelle.blogspot.ca. If you came from Michelle's blog then you are in the right place!

So, if you haven't had a chance to look through our new Annual Inspirations Idea Book yet, what are you waiting for?! There are so many fantastic new things and I really have had a difficult time choosing my favourites.  The Flower Market Cricut ® collection is amazing and our new Fundamentals paper packages are so versatile, great for every occasion! I could go on and on about all the items I love, but I will let you find your favourites as you hop along across Canada.  I've chosen one of our new word Thin Cut dies - the Z3528 "Happy" one in particular along with one of my favourite new stamp sets C1662 "Wise Guy Birthday". I have also chosen our "colour of the year" - Sea Glass cardstock.


Here is what I created with these three items, along with some other staples from my craft room:

I cut the "Happy" die out of peacock cardstock, saving the negative piece to use on the second card - waste not, want not!  These are the ink colours used to random stamp the confetti image and sentiment on the first card:

 And here is a closer look at the first card - I masked the sentiment so that on the "birthday" portion was stamped since I already had the "happy" die cut. I embellished with sequins from our "Florence" collection (retiring at the end of this month!) and some of our new Sparkles in the center of the sequins. Peacock and White Daisy cardstocks were used along with the Sea Glass - love this combinanation!!


The second card used the negative space from the die cut and I backed it with some silver shimmer tape for a little sparkle. I used our black journalling pen to doodle around the edges of the Sea Glass cardstock and the birthday banner. A few silver sequins finished off this simple card. 
So there you have it, two simple cards with one die cut! To purchase any of the items featured in this post, visit my CTMH shopping site:  rozkelly.closetomyheart.ca

So long from Nova Scotia! Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nicky's Blog in New Brunswick!

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 on September 15th when we will be featuring projects with a Back to School theme.
