January Hop "Consultant's Choice"

Welcome to the first Blog Hop of 2013!

Our January Hop is featuring a “Consultants Choice”, so each consultant has a unique project to share with you.  I 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 S. at mycreationswithmichelle.

If you came from "Arlene" of "arlenescreativespace" then you are in the right place!

Here is my contribution:

I had to make 2 sympathy cards.  I find it hard to create those kinds of cards but with some new stamp sets I'm happy with the finished cards.  I used Avonlea Paper which is back in the upcoming Spring/Summer Idea Book.  I like the way the tulip looks like stained glass and I love the flowers stamp on the first card.  I used a crimper for the first time - luv it!

Products used:
  • Colonial White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack
  • Avonlea Paper
  • Color-Ready Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Smokey Plum Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad
  • Smokey Plum Exclusive Inks® Marker Set
  • Gypsy Exclusive Inks® Marker Set
  • June SOTM - A Flowering Bunch (sneak peak)
  • Sparkles Brown & Tan Assortment

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is "Krista" of "simplycreatingtogether".

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

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in February when we will be featuring a 2 page layout.
