Welcome to our April Blog Hop featuring artwork created using the CTMH Feels Like Home collection. 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 …. by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you.

Now on to our hop! As this is a circular hop, if you’ve just hopped onto my blog, then you are starting in Alberta and will work your way out to B.C., then loop back to the East Coast. However, if you want to follow us across Canada, then you can start at the beginning by clicking here to go to Michelle’s page in Nova Scotia. If you came from Jessica’s page then you are in the right place!

Today, we are creating with Close To My Heart’s “Feels Like Home” collection, which is the fourth and final collection in the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book and catalogue. You can find the collection beginning on page 56.

This month, I am showing you a 2-page layout that I created (using ideas from two older layouts that I had kept in my “Ideas” file) for one of my upcoming scrapbook workshops. It makes use of a lot of florals (which I love!) to add dimension and detail to an otherwise very quick and simple layout. No stamping necessary! All of the sentiments, titles and other pics/tags were fussy cut from the Cut Apart sheet in the paper pack. All of the Sugarplum/Charcoal and White Daisy/Sapphire flowers were cut on the Cricut using the Artistry collection.

You can see in this close up that I gently rolled the top, Charcoal layer of the flowers for even more dimension!

Even though I did not do any stamping for this project, the Feels Like Home collection includes some beautiful stamp sets. You can see the scrapbooking set here, and the cardmaking set here, on my shopping site:

Supplies used in this layout:

  • X7243B Feels Like Home paper pack
  • X6028 Black card stock
  • X5989 Sugarplum card stock
  • X5999 Charcoal card stock
  • X6028 White Daisy card stock
  • X6021 Sapphire card stock
  • Z4194 White & Gold Skinny Ribbon
  • Z4192 Sugarplum Glitter Gems
  • Z3298 Artistry Cricut Collection (see here for more details)

Thanks for hopping along with us! I hope we’ve inspired you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques featuring the Feels Like Home collection. For more inspiration, please join us again next month when we will be featuring artwork from the brand new Seasonal Expressions 2 using the “Sweet Girl”collection. Mark your calendars for May 10th so you can hop along with us again.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Kristine. If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle’s page,  as she has the complete hop list. 

Until next time!
