Welcome to our June Blog Hop featuring artwork created using the CTMH’s “True Love” 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 Brandi’s page then you are in the right place!

Today, we are creating with Close To My Heart’s “True Love” collection, which is the second collection in the Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book and catalogue! You can find the collection beginning on page 27.

This month, I am showing you a set of 14 cards that I made with only one sheet of patterned paper from the “True Love” collection. If you’re a consultant, this would make a very cost effective class! It took me about 1 hour and 45 minutes from cutting up the patterned paper to adding bling. I used each sentiment on two cards, which made things even simpler. The stamp sets are listed below.

I found a site that has terrific step-by-step directions and pictures for One-Sheet Wonder card sets. You can link to it here:

Supplies used in this layout:

  • X7244B True Love paper pack
  • X6021 Sapphire cardstock
  • X254 Card Bases & Envelopes Value Pack
  • S1906 It’s Your Day to Sparkle
  • S1905 To My Bestie
  • A1230 Defining You
  • Z1263 Bitty Sparkles

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 True Love collection. For more inspiration, please join us again next month when we will be featuring more artwork from the Seasonal Expressions 2 using the “Into the Wild” collection. Mark your calendars for July 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!
