New Product blog Hop


Welcome to our August Blog Hop featuring artwork created from products found in the 2017-2018 Annual Inspirations Catalog. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant  or me 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....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 Creations with Michelle. 
If you came from "Brae Montgomery's blog"  then you are in the right place! 

There are so many delightful new products and as a consultant I have had the pleasure of playing with a few different ones these past two weeks.
I love our new colour of the year, "Bashful" and so I created a card using our new bashful cardstock,bashful glitter,gold paper ,Rose embossing folder and our new "You are Here" Cricut cartridge. That's 5 new products all on one card.
Here it is .




Now the next three cards use a stamp set that was previously offered in the annual inspirations of 2016, however it is now accompanied with a thin cut ! Makes it easy to cut and stamp. I used our Shin Han Twin touch markers and another new alphabet embossing folder. We do not carry washi tape so I used some from another supplier.














Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is "Michelle Hughes ".

If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, http://mycreationswithmichelle.blogspot.ca, as she has the complete blog list. 

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 inspired from the New Products from the New Holiday Expressions Catalog. 
So mark September 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

Happy  150th Birthday Canada !


 What an exciting year we have ahead of us. I remember celebrating Canada's 100th birthday as I was in school and it was quite the event.  This is truly a great time to be Canadian. We are respected globally and whenever I travel I always wear my Canadian Flag pin.
 I made sure to participate in some of the activities in my hometown today. Started off the day with pancakes and maple syrup ! Watched a Blue jay game indoors as we had another damp, hot rainy day.  Then I found out about all of the wonderful opportunities that Close to My Heart is offering to honour our Canadian birthday.

 We now have a custom designed 150 Canada Stamp ! It is available to purchase now.

Here is the link to purchase this stamp

We also have  a Canadian Themed bundle designed especially for us
 It consists of a digital Cricut cartridge. ( You need Design space to be able to use this )
It also includes the stamp above  and matching cardstock
 This is the picture of the bundle

This bundle has a special discounted price of $44.80 for the month of July. 

Here is the link for the special Canada Bundle available for the month of July

We have  many more exciting things to share this month but I will hold off for a few days to enjoy Canada's birthday. Stay tuned ...

I decided to go through a stash of pictures and then a stash of product that would match up nicely. I came across this beautiful picture of my mother(she is in the centre). She was asked to be part of a Senior's fashion show and was crowned the Princess of fashion. I think that's where I get my sense of fashion.

I decided to use some of the left over paper from my Workshop, Some Kinda Wonderful".
I used the :
Some Kinda Wonderful complements,paper and black cardstock as the background. I also used the current Flower market cartridge to make the black flower. I really love how this came together.
