My Creative Bracket Frame Blog Hop

Welcome to our September Cross Canada Blog Hop!  
In this hop, you will see how our Crafty Canadian Close To My Heart Consultants have decorated their Bracket Frames! We hope you enjoy our blog hop today!

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 and join Deanne's Blog in NewFoundland. If you came from Tara's blog, then you are in the right place  

This month our project is the My Creations Bracket Frame. This product can be found on page 132 of the 2012 Autumn/Winter Idea Book, which can be purchased exclusively through myself, an Close to My Heart Independent Consultant, for only $8.95.

This is a bracket frame made with the Avonlea paperpack and coordinating embellishments. I also used the Artiste cricut cartridge to make the roses and rosettes. I also cut the butterflies with this same cartridge. The satin polka dot ribbon looks so lovely with these papers.

Here are some close-ups of the frame...

You can purchase your own bracket frame on my website here.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is to Nancy's Blog.

Re-configured Cubby Box video tutorial

I am so excited to share with you my re-configured cubby from Close To My Heart. The cubby is originally intended as a box that you can create drawers using the CTMH Artiste cricut collection to convert into an advent calendar. I wanted to try something different and re-configure some of the spaces into larger openings.

The first cubby, I made using the "scholastic" collection from the Fall/Winter 2012 Idea book & catalogue. I decided to display my son's school pictures from preschool to grade 6 to show how much he has changed through the years. 

The second cubby features the "Flirty" collection and I made it for the Close To My Heart's silent auction at the Edmonton regionals.

I hope you enjoy my video tutorial and I would love to encourage you to make one of your own!

Enjoy and thanks for looking!

Here is the video tutorial so you can make your own!
