Hearts of the West December Blog Hop: Snowhaven

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The hearts of the west team was founded by Nancy Klein.
This months challenge is the Snowhaven paper pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Kerry Hammel's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

For my project I chose to share two boxes I decorated using the Snowhaven product line. I purchase the boxes at Michael's and then re-cover and embellish them with Close To My Heart product. The end result is outstanding! I gave one of these boxes to one of my amazing customers and kept one to store Christmas cards in each year but you can also put your Christmas gifts in them and give them away as they make amazing gifts.

For the first box I also used the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge which is 20% off for cyber Monday - December 1, 2014. All of Close To My Heart's Cricut bundles are 20% off so this is a great opportunity to get yours in this sale! You can shop online for the cricut bundles as well as the Snowhaven product online here.

You  can watch my video here of the two boxes I made if you would like to see them in more detail.
Thanks for watching!

Wanderful Travel Mini Album made with Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

I made this travel mini album using the Artfully Sent Cricut cart to make the pages for the album out of the card bases cut on this cartridge.  Even though this cartridge is designed mostly for making cards, it is also awesome for making mini albums! 

You can check it out below!
