Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring card boxes.  Did you know that you can create your own card boxes using CTMH products? Whether they are the My Creations Card Boxes, Journaling Boxes or cricut cuts, there is just so much more you can use these boxes for. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact me about placing an order or hosting a workshop.

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 want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Michelle at 
If you came from our  very creative " Sheri of "  sheri says-just scrap it."  then you are in the right place! 

For my project I chose to explore the Easter themed boxes that are on the Artiste -Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge. 
The boxes are listed on page 73 of the Artiste booklet and the picture instructions are listed in the assembly instruction booklet that comes with the cartridge.
For the bunny box no glue or adhesive is required ! I decorated it with a candy symbol and Easter title from the Artbooking cartridge. I dabbed a little of our silver glitter gel(which is now retired-boo hoo)

The Easter basket was decorated with a bow from page 66 of the Artiste cartridge.I used a retired Silver brad and placed some flamingo dots on the brad to make it pop.
The paper I used is Laughing Lola which will be retiring at the end of this Spring catalog. Makes a nice choice for these Purple themed boxes. The small boxes are also from Artiste.-page 45. I used Cotton Candy card stock and stamped the Easter egg images from a retired Easter stamp set.
These boxes are now going to be on my kitchen table which needed a shot of spring!

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is  the very talented" Terry Ann" of "
