Cross-Canada Blog Hop - March

Welcome to our Cross-Canada blog hop for March, featuring Easter. To purchase any of the products used 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 something you really liked or some new technique that you would like to learn how to do... by 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. If you came from Nikki of the Timeless Cottage in Hampton, New Brunswick then you are in the right place!
One of our family tradition for Easter is colouring eggs together and then on the morning before brunch running around the house hunting for chocolate eggs.

I made this card using pattern papers from two different packs. Scaredy Cat (X7185B)  (meant for Halloween) and Confetti Wishes (X7198B)  (meant for Birthday). The colours go perfect together with thistle ink and cardstock. I used Easter Wishes stamp set. (B1422)  and coloured the chick with the ShinHan markers.

The best part of the hunt is the SURPRISE as to what you find.  so I used an adhesive spring (Z1725) behind the chick... to make him wobble in his egg shell.


Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Krista from Oshawa's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle's blog, as she has the complete blog list.

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.

MAKE IT Crafty Hop - Easter/Spring Creations

Welcome to the •MAKE•IT•Crafty• Seasonal Blog Hop! This month we will be featuring Easter or Spring creations.

If you’ve arrived from Diana's blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This month we have a number of Close To My Heart Consultants from Ottawa sharing their creations using various CTMH products to help you get over the winter blues.
 For me, the first sign of Spring is St Patrick's Day !!  Everyone wears green, paints shamrocks on their face, stands in the cold to see the parade and then ends up at the pub for some singalongs and drinking.

I know a little leprechaun, my mischievous and clever 6-yr old nephew.  He loooves candy and chocolates, so I made him his very own pot of gold... I decorated the Cut Above Holiday Treat Bag, it's the perfect shade of green.

St Patty's Day Pot of Gold

Outside on the front
I glued a gold chocolate coin at the bottom of the rainbow. For the bag topper I made a shamrock. and used the white chalk marker (Z1767) to trim the edge of ther leaves.  For the stem, I took the striped green washi tape (Z2002) and folded it lengthwise onto itself.

TIP: To make the shamrock, I used the Cricut to cut out 3 hearts out of green Topiary cardstock ( and glued them together using CTMH adhesive dots (Z1903).

I took one of the Picture My Life cards with the rainbow, positioned it just so, so you could see it through the window. At the very bottom of the holder, I taped gold dotted washi tape so it looked like gold coins.
Inside - PML card with rainbow

When I present the treat holder, it will be filled with a bag with gold chocolate coins. I know a little guy who will be happy to get this.
Thank you so much for following along on our Blog Hop today! I hope you are enjoying the lovely artwork… Now it’s time to head over to Cyndy's blog and see her artwork! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas! And please leave comments for the other bloggers as you hop through!
