Christmas and Winter Seasonal Blog Hop

Welcome to the •MAKE•IT•Crafty• Seasonal Blog Hop! This month we will be featuring all things Christmas and Winter.


If you’ve arrive from Emma Hubert'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 sharing their creations using various CTMH products to help you get in a festive mood for the holiday season.

I have chosen to showcase the Picture My Life Pear and Partridge Scrapbooking Program. I just love how the cards go so well with my childhood pictures from 1975.

3x4" cardstock covered in gold polka dot washi tape
Here I used a 4x4" flip flap to add two additional photos to my pocket page.
I kept this layout simple with very few embellishments because the paper is so beautiful already. This allows me more time to spend creating additional pages for my family to enjoy.
Products Used:
Picture My Life Pear and Partridge kit
gold sequins
Artbooking Cricut cartridge for gold frame and bow, Smiles
Art Philosophy for the star
