Welcome to the December Hearts of the West team blog hop! If this is your first time joining us, I know you are going to love it.
This hop features Close to my Heart consultants from all over Canada. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.
If you came from Corrina's blog then you're in the right place!
This is a circular blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case you should get lost - the full list can be found at the bottom of this post.
SO, as always ... grab your coffee, tea, or water ... relax ... and hop around with us!
This month we're showcasing the Snowhaven paper packet. I love the Scandinavian feel to this paper and the red gives it such a warm feeling.
I collect a lot of Christmas images from Pinterest, and decided to try making a card with one of them this month. I looked for one that had similar reds and blacks that Snowhaven has and came up with this sweet little girl giving gifts to the animals.
I cut one of the borders from the piece of paper that has all the different borders; and then die cut coordinating papers to make a snowflake and pine boughs. The dies are not CTMH, but the cute pointsettia is. It is from a retired Christmas embellishment pack that I have always loved, and bought extra of to have on hand.
I think this would be a great way to use up old Christmas cards as well! Recycling at its best!!
Thanks for stopping by again, I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop. I know everyone has been working hard to come up with something that will get your creative juices flowing!
