CTMH Paper Collections

Welcome to our May Blog Hop featuring our favorite New Paper Collections. We have 4 new, amazing and fun paper collections in the Current Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog.
We have a wonderful group of talented ladies from all across Canada and they sure would love to hear from you, so before hopping onto the next person, take a moment and leave a comment about what you loved.

If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, and continue from East Coast to West Coast, you can start here at My Creations with Michelle. If you've arrived from The Brae-er then you are in the right place! 

I want to share the Prickly Pear paper with you today because it suits for so many of life's events.

 We have coordinating Prickly Pear Sequins and the easy to use Prickly Pear Compliments which are a combination of stickers and chipboard die-cuts.

The layouts below were designed by fellow consultant, Donna Cosgrove. I love how quickly they went together. I made a few slight changes to make them my own but I am blessed that we have so many consultant sisters who freely share their artwork for anyone to use. Being a lady who isn't particularly good with coming up with designs of my own, these ladies sure help make my fun job even more fun. It saves me time which I get to then get to spend with my kids. We may be doing our farm chores but we do them together.



Now for the artwork~





 With the left over paper, I simply added some card bases and envelopes to make these 7 additional cards all on my own. Wondering if I got out the sewing machine to add the stitching?




No way Jose, I drew them on with our journaling pen. I intentionally left the sentiments off of a few cards so I can add something specific to the occasion when I need a card.

Thank you for stopping by Canadian Scrappers for a dose of inspiration.

We have an amazing group of talented ladies all across Canada, and they sure would love to hear from you, so before hopping onto the next person, take a moment and leave a comment about what you loved.

Here is a card I made using the Dreamin' Big paper suite, Thoughtful Flowers S1612 which was the December 2016 Stamp of the Month and the fabulous Shin Han Touch Twin Markers. 

Throughout the Christmas holidays I made some time to play with the markers and just couldn't stop. These pages are in the planner bundle available on my website. It was so relaxing that I lost track of time. Here are some of the pages I have coloured with the markers.





Aren't these pages fun?! Which is your favourite?
