June--Cross Canada CTMH Blog Hop


Welcome to our June Blog Hop featuring Party themed projects.  
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning with Michelle If you came from Nicola's then you are on the right track.

My summer will be busy helping my niece plan the biggest party of her life (so far)
...her wedding.
Below is the wedding invitation and guest favor.
I am pretty sure we will also be usiing the cricut to make place cards in these same colors.
This is why I love Close to my Heart's newest Cricut Cartridge..."Artiste"
Everything was cut from that cartridge except the "squares"
which were cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
Hand cutting is not a big deal if you are only making one or two items,
but when you are talking 150 invitations and 300+ guest favors,
you really appreciate owning a cricut.

Supplies
1385 white daisy cardstock
1271 buttercup cardstock
X5930 slate cardstock
X5929 whisper cardstock
Z1817 slate polka dot washi tape
Z1802 slate polka dot ribbon
Z2173 slate inkpad
Z1263 bitty sparkles
and two retired stamp set.
One more quick photo. I cook for a living and get kinda lazy when it comes to dessert tables for family functions. With this said, Look how easy it is to dress up one of those $3 cookie bins.

 Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is just to the north on me over at JANET'S blog.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own party projects using some of the designs, paper and techniques seen along the way. Join us again in July when we will be featuring retiring paper packs.  We plan on showing you just how much you can create with 1 paper packet.  We hope you will join us again on July 15th.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment. I love to hear what you think. And welcome any suggestions of items you would like to see me create
