Santa's sleigh has left Jean's blog and you've arrived at mine.  If you want to start at Santa's workshop visit the head elf Melinda.
  The artwork created by the participating consultants will give you an idea of what can be created with the new products from the Holiday Expressions Idea Book(Avail. Sept 1st thru Dec. 31st).  We hope we've given you some ideas that can be created with these new products, but we want to see what you make!  Please post your creations on social media with the #CTMH.  Thank You


I put together an 8 x 3 card  using the new City Sidewalks paper collection.  I'm using the Cozy Christmas combination stamp and die set which is new in this Idea Book. Check them out.

This month I decide to do a layout.  I'm taking a trip this month and this stamp set is perfect for my road trip.  I used a pattern from the How-Too book Magic by Jeanette Lynton pattern is Illusion pg. 94.


I lightly tacked my photo place holders on as I know I'll pop one or two pictures off the page to give the layout more dimension or add some flip flaps.
I haven't taken my trip yet, so I have no idea what adventures I'll  have during the drive on my way to Tacoma to see my new Grandson.  I'll have many adventures to scrap once I get there!

m Priscilla, and I'm delighted you decided to view the hop today.   The artwork created by the participating consultants will give you an idea of what can be created with this paper kit & stamp set.  You've arrived here from Darly's blog.  If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop or see the list of participants visit Melinda's blog.

Flowers created from the Happy Times exclusive stamp set by Close to My Heart (CC1064)




Fast & simple single page layout.  This layout is easy to pull together in under an hour.  I weighted the lower right side of the page because the foiled pink paper on the left is so gorgeous that I could not cover it up.  I plan to put this in a frame with a picture of my Mother from this upcoming Mother's Day.
