January Cross Canada Blog Hop - Welcome 2018 new Catalog

Welcome to our January Blog Hop featuring artwork welcoming in 2018 and our new catalog. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order, or you can shop here.

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 how to 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, plus I'm the first stop when hopping from East Coast to West Coast. If you came from Jessica's blog then you are in the right place! 

The project I was going to originally show is no longer available due to a cat incident. So I quickly got my craft supplies out and used some scraps I had to create this card. I really love the Chelsea Gardens Collection, so I pulled out some pretty pattern paper and the cardmaking stamp set and quickly pulled this card together. I used the watercolor paints and waterbrush to add color to the images.  I felt that they still needed something so I added some shimmer using the clear Shimmer Brush.  

I've decided to welcome in 2018, but continuing to create, and inspire others to be creative.  

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Colleen.

If you get lost along the way, you can come on back here, I've provided a complete list of our hoppers:

Michelle You Are Here

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Love and Friendships. So mark February 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

Always craft with  <3


  1. Super cute card! I hate when plans go awry - but you did a great job with your scraps!

  2. Oh My! A cat incident?!? Still, a nice backup project:)

  3. Darn those cats! Pretty sure this is going to be one of my all time favourite collections! Just love the shimmer you added.


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
