November-December Supplemental Catalog NEW PRODUCT Blog Hop...

Welcome to the NEW PRODUCT BLOG HOP for the November/December 2020 Catalog!

I can't wait to show you what I've made but first we need to make sure you're where you're supposed to be! We have 19 CTMH Makers participating this month and if you are visiting me by way of Darlys's Blog, you are on the right track! Keep on hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! If you happen to feel lost, there's a link for the full list of Makers at the end of this post.

Now...for my project. I took the ADORABLE Jingle Joy Scrapbooking Workshop Kit and put a few spins on it. Take a look...

---------------------------------------------
I love how the triangles on the left page resemble a Christmas Tree...don't you?
------------------------------------------------
This layout is pretty much the exact same one that comes predesigned in the Scrapbooking Kit...
------------------------------------------------
And this one is similar to the one in the Kit but I made it a one-page layout and took out the large glittery snowflakes...SAVING THOSE for another project 😀


Thank you so much for stopping by! Your next stop is Michelle Loncar...remember to visit each blog and leave some love along the way!

Trust the Lord with Blue Belle and H2H...

Welcome to NOVEMBER, full of pumpkins, changing of the leaves and HOPEFULLY cooler temperatures!

A new week also means a new Heart 2 Heart Challenge - this one featuring CTMH's Color of the Year - BLUE BELLE.

Let's take a look at my card, totally inspired by my weekend guest spot on the Craft Roulette show where the luck of the wheel determines the parameter of your project. Friday night, we spun the wheel and the following parameters were chosen:

* Project: Card featuring a heart
* Colors: Primary (neutrals are FREE)
* Element: Pumpkin
* Random: Sanding

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I started off with our Silver Polka Dot Paper from the Silver Foil Patterns Paper Packet then sponged Blue Belle Ink all over it using my Mini-Blending Tool...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here's a close-up of the Scandinavian Pumpkin stamp set I used (ONLY $3,95...such a GREAT price) and the sentiment from our NEW Trust in the Lord stamp set. For the Red part for my "primary colors" requirement, I used some red thread from my stash...
-------------------------------------------------
And...here's a look at the inside with the rest of the sentiment as well as the "sanded" part of my card...I brought all the primary colors to the inside of the card as well, using stamps from the Trust in the Lord stamp set (such a FABULOUS set to have)...


Thank you for stopping by!

Please head on over to the H2H Challenge Blog to see what the other DT Members came up with as well as PLAY ALONG with us! You have until the end of November 2020 to submit your project!

Holiday Cards Blog Hop...

Welcome to a Blog Hop all about Holiday Cards...or Christmas Cards as I like to call them!

We have a short list of participants for this hop and I KNOW that you will be inspired to get a jump on, or continue working on, your Christmas Cards!

Let's take a look at where you should be in the hop. If you're coming from Darlys's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! You will find a link to a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post.

Here's a look at a card I made using my FAVORITE Kraft Cardstock...coupled with some of our white variety specialty papers (White Glitter Paper, Pearl Ore Paper and Vellum) and a touch of Scarlet Ink...

------------------------------------------------------
I LOVE all the little details of this card! You've got the different snowy Yuletide Borders, the splatter from the white ink and shimmer brush, the sequins and let's not forget the Scarlet heart smoke and border dots all across the bottom of the card...

----------------------------------------------------
And...here's a look at the inside of the card...that little Flourished Joy stamp set (ONLY $3.95 by the way) has quite some bang for the buck (the heart smoke and dots across the bottom of the front of my card are ALSO included in that M-Size Stamp Set)...


Thank you so much for stopping by! Here is a process video showing you how this card came together! It's not too late to order all your card-making supplies AND it still arrive in plenty of time to make them from your heart!
