CTMH Cricut Flower Market Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cricut Flower Market Blog Hop!  

I am so glad you can join me and many other Close to My Heart Consultants as we showcase products made with the brand new (and amazing!) CTMH Flower Market Cricut cartridge!

Melinda's Blog, where you can find the complete list of bloggers!

Now for some artwork!

As I have mentioned before, I am definitely a Cricut newbie!  I got a Cricut Explore Air in September, and I have been learning how to use it - it is SO much fun!!  And SO easy!  This new cartridge is chock full of beautiful images for a variety of crafty needs!  I decided to stick with a Christmas theme, because I had a wooden sleigh that was desperately needing a makeover, and I wanted to dress it up to hold cards for Christmas!!

I covered the sleigh with paper from the City Sidewalks paper pack, and then painted the inner part.  Using the Flower Market cartridge, I cut out an assortment of berries, and greenery, and a Merry Christmas title.  There were so many choices, it was easy to make some fun embellishments in just a few easy steps!

With the great coordinating City Sidewalks paper pack, this project was a snap!  I can't wait to try even more projects with this wonderful Cricut collection, available from your local Close to My Heart Consultant, or purchase it here.

November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog and to the November edition of the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month blog hop!

This month many creative CTMH consultants from Canada, the US and Australia and New Zealand have created some amazing artwork with the New Year's Cheer stamp set!

If you have come from GINA'S BLOG, you are in the right place.  The hop is a big circle, but if you get lost, please head back to MELINDA'S BLOG, and you will find a list of all the hoppers!

This fun set with thirteen stamps is perfect for cards, invitations and scrapbook pages to ring in the New Year!

I opted to create a card using vellum and embossed images using this set:

I love the vellum from the Uptown Fundamentals  paper pack - so beautiful! I embossed  and fussy cut the glasses and banners, and stamped "cheers" directly onto the vellum - make sure you allow dry time so it doesn't smudge! There are many more creative uses for this stamp set ahead!  If you would like to purchase this set, it is available in the month of November  only for $6.00 CAD with your purchase of $50.  Please contact your CTMH consultant or go here for more information.

Now please hop on to MAUREEN'S BLOG for more ideas on how to use this beautiful set!  And thanks for joining us for the November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
