Cross Canada Hop- April 2018

 Hello crafty friends!
Long time, no see.
Life has been super hectic since last autumn. 
  • We moved out of our house, packing most of it into storage.
  • I managed to find homes for the 6000 Christmas cards donated to the Caring Hearts Card Drive!!! Last delivery made December 21st.
  • We celebrated Christmas in a rental unit. Not the same but all together.
  • We moved into our new, beautiful condo.
  • We unpacked.
  • I've been working at three part-time jobs since January, moving offices once.
Now that spring has ALMOST sprung, I can start to get to some of those lower-down items on Maslow's hierarchy (remember Psychology 101) of which, sadly, crafting has been one...so first post of 2018. And what better theme than CELEBRATIONS :)

Welcome to our April Blog Hop featuring artwork inspired by Celebrations. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant 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 Dominique at Fun2cre8.

I am sharing a couple of lay-outs from last summer.

Canada Day: One photo can make a statement. Keep the layout simple; mat the photo to set it off; add a few embellishments and bold sentiment. (Purchased paper and CTMH "Celebrate" die-cut, along with some hand-water-coloured die-cut leaves).

Celebrating strawberries...one of the best things about summer is fruit! Themed paper can emphasize your subject. A few hand-stamped embellishments reinforce the topic as well. (Patterned paper and die-cut letters from CTMH).

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Sheena of Kanata Newf Papercrafts.
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S blog, Creations with Michelle, as she has the complete blog list. (Please link this to my Deep URL)

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 artwork celebrating Relationships. So mark May 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

Happy crafting,
Caroline
