Joyful Stars December Blog Hop...

Welcome to the Joyful Stars December Blog Hop, glad you could hop on by and view the Creative Inspirations from several of our talented Close To My Heart Independent Consultants.  If you  arrived here from Lori Meadows blog then you're right on track.

Here's a page I've been working on for a bit and finally got the finishing touches added.  The idea for this layout came from the Team Retreat I attended this past fall.  It was demo'd by my upline Denise Sanner and the design was created by the very talented Michelle Snyder.  I just love the Warm and Welcome Feeling it gives.  Just insert a favorite family photo in the mat and you've surely got a treasured keepsake for years to come!

Here is a list of Close My Heart Products I used for this project...

My Reflections White Pines Paper Packet X7200B
Gold Glitter Paper X3076
Art Philosophy Cricut Collection Z3171
Artiste Cricut Collection Z3170
Artbooking Cricut Collection Z3169
Red Enamel Gems Z3090
Dot Embossing Folder Z1924 
My Exclusive Inks Chocolate Z2111

Hope you enjoyed this beautiful layout :0)   This project fits perfectly in CTMH's Designed Decor Shadow Boxes.   If you are interested in any of  these products, please visit my website where you can shop and view our current Idea Books.

Everything ABC's Bog Hop Letter Y...

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this Hop we will be featuring the letter "Y"  This may be the name of a paper, stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "Y" element will be featured in their post.

If you came here from  Daryls Recker at Crafty Happy then you're right on track!

My Inspiration for the Letter "Y" is Yuletide.  Originating in the 15th Century it is a German word for Christmas, Christmastide, Christmastime...very fitting for this season!  CTMH's Reason For The Season reminds us exactly why we celebrate this Joyous Season of Advent & Christmas,

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder.  And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.  Isaiah 9:6

For this project I used the following Close To My Heart products...

My Acrylic Stamp Set Reason For The Season D1614
Exclusive Cardstock Colonial White 1388
Exclusive Cardstock Black 1386
My Exclusive Inks Black Z2105
