Welcome to the January
Close to My Heart Joyful Stars Blog Hop.
Have some fun hopping between the blogs of this group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, where we share creative projects using CTMH products.
Have you seen the new CTMH Seasonal Expressions Catalog?
Hop along with us to see some awesome projects using the new products.
It was a struggle to decide what to make for this month's blog hop. My current focus has been on making Heart Themed cards for the Cards for Little Hearts February card drive, and switching gears was proving difficult. I knew I wanted to use the new Cross-stitch Love stamp set with matching Thin Cuts, and I just love the new Chelsea Gardens paper.
Stamping a bunch of the cross-stitched roses was a start. (For me, it was much easier to cut the shape first and then stamp it.) As I laid out the flowers on a piece of plain glacier blue cs, I spied the cross-stitched heart stamps in the set and began random stamping the cs. Switching gears wasn't necessary, after all. This will make a lovely card for one of the older girls in the hospital.
Now, since this is a blog hop,
you might have arrived here from Andrea Sherman's blog.Your next stop is Marie Flayer's blog. The hop is
circular. So if you are just starting here, simply continue hopping until you find your way back, making the full circle. If you get lost, the complete list of participants is on Joyce's blog.
