Christmas Blog Hop with Canvas Corp Brands

Hello and Welcome to my blog.

 Thank you so much for stopping by today. You are in for a treat! Today I am participating in a  hop with teammates from Canvas Corp Brands.

 There are lots of fantastic designers world wide that have come together to showcase terrific projects that you can recreate and put your own artistic touches on in your craft room. You have seen a lot of these designers featured on sites like Tattered Angels, 7 Gypsies and and Canvas Corp Brands!

The Creative Crew at Canvas Corp Brands (CCB) would like to share creative visions to set the mood for the festive season upon us.

I wanted to share a project that I created that was published in the latest 

Just Christmas Cards and Decorations Magazine by Scott

Please support our Print Magazines as much as possible so that the hard copy magazines can continue to provide joy to those that do not have internet access or want to enjoy a hard copy

 "off the grid" as we label this phenomenon.

Here is a close up of my gift box project.

Tip: Re-purpose any small gift box as a template by tracing the opened/flatten box onto your
 favorite card stock.

You will find my project published on page 15 

of the Just Christmas Cards and  Decorations 
Vol 5  2018 Magazine. 
This magazine is available for purchase from Amazon as well as BarnsandNoble, if they have not sold out of the magazine.  I believe your  craft supply Box Store will also carry this magazine as well.

Opportunities To Celebrate

Hello Bloggers.

It's been a season of change and adjustments as our families grow and celebrate milestones.

My son Andrew has returned from Asian modeling recently and is back in Canada enjoying 
life in the big city.

The fashion industry schedules and calendar's take time to prep for seasonal production and marketing of their products and here is a pleasant surprise that we recently discovered.

Andrew has made it to a Men's Section within a department store in Asia.  We are happy for his milestone success and hope to see a few more in the future.

Congrat's Andrew !

Here is my double page layout that I created using the 13 Arts Frosted Life collection (retired) designed by Aida Domisiewicz.  
 I used the Cold Wall sheet, Mrozne Paprocie and Gwiezdny Pyl pattern papers.
Check out the store here.
A trip to South Korea was a real travel adventure and hiking to the top of the mountain was breath taking.  
I designed the layout with out using any black cardstock.  I found some shades of grey, pink and blue that complemented the Frosted Life collection and I am pleased how it turned out considering the pictures have alot of dark texture within them.
 Here are some close-ups of the pattern papers. 
Here you can see I hand cuts some titles.

The flowers on the layout are die cut with some of the pattern paper from the collection as well.

I kept the layout clean and simple as I wanted to place a lot of photo's on the layout.  I followed a layout sketch which showcased many photo's.  I hope to enter this double layout and give 13 arts some additional promotion later in the month.

Hand cut and distressed some tags and arrows from the pattern paper as well.

Thanks for joining me today.
