Welcome to our February 2020 Cross Canada Blog Hop, featuring artwork created using the CTMH’s “Celebrate Today” collection. If you’re interested in purchasing 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 Janet’s page then you are in the right place!

Today, we are creating with Close To My Heart’s “Celebrate Today” collection, which is the second collection in the Jan/Feb 2020 Supplemental Idea Book and catalogue! You can find the collection beginning on page 12.

This month, I am showing you three 2-page layouts that I created using CTMH’s “Celebrate Today” collection. The first two are definitely aimed at birthdays! The third layout COULD be about a birthday, but I designed it so that you could use it for any type of celebration. These layouts will be recreated by my club members. There is also a “leveled up” version, where the Celebrate Today Vellum Die Cuts are sprinkled in. I’ve included some close-ups of a few places where I used them.

Supplies used in this layout:

  • X7252S Celebrate Today paper pack + sticker sheet
  • X7252D Celebrate Today PML (pocket) cards
  • X7252E Celebrate Today Vellum Die-Cuts
  • X6037 Bluebird cardstock
  • X6042 Mint cardstock
  • X6030 Evergreen cardstock
  • X6035 Lemonade cardstock
  • 1385 White Daisy cardstock
  • X6047 Black cardstock
  • Z3370 White Pearls
  • Z3635 Dreamy Holographic Paper
  • Misc. Cricut cuts (“birthday” & “you”)

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 Celebrate Today collection. For more inspiration, please join us again next month when we will be featuring artwork from the new March/April Supplemental catalogue!! . Mark your calendars for March 10th so you can hop along with us again.
