Come Hop with us!

Welcome to our brand new Blog Hop featuring CTMH consultants who belong to the Brae-er's team ..... 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 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 get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog at for a full list of participants. If you came from Alyson 's blog  Create with Alyson then you are in the right place!

This month, we are focusing on new products from our CTMH Idea Book.  I had already created this project for my recent open house and it uses two of my favourite new products....the My Creations Kraft Container (Z1833) and Hollyhock Zipper Lace (Z1826).  I wanted my project to be bright and colourful, so I chose the Chantilly Paper Pack (X7163B).

 Cutting the slot in the top of the Kraft container to make this a piggy bank was fairly easy.....the lid can be gently eased apart so that you can work on a flat surface, then I punched two small holes with my cropadile where I wanted the slot to start and finish, then used an exacto knife to join them up.  I then added my paper and embellishments and then glued it back in place with a bead of liquid glass around the edge.

Additional supplies used: Z679 Liquid glass, Z1807 Pink Glitter Gems, white daisy crocheted flower from  Z1786 Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold collection, flowers and butterfly from Z1266 Spring Blossoms (retired), Hollyhock ink.

Your next stop on the Hop is Heather at Heather's Scrapping .
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in next month when we will be featuring a "technique" hop!


  1. I like the idea of a piggy bank! This is great for crops when someone is using your paper or something, they can just contribute into the pretty piggy bank!

  2. Very cute piggy bank! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Love the piggy bank idea! You did a great job with it!

  4. I LOVE the idea of a piggy back - who would have thought? And I am in the process of collecting coins so this will just have to be my next project :) Great job!

  5. LOVE these! I hope we have these containers for a long time because they are wonderful!
