Cricut You Are Here Collection Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Christmas Card Blog Hop
We will be featuring the new Cricut Collection, 
"You are Here".

This cartridge is amazing I cannot wait to see what everyone has created. The images from this cartridge are great for layouts, cards and home decor. 
  • Physical Cartridge (700 images on it)
  • 3 "D" sized coordinating stamps sets
  • 1 pack of our NEW two toned cardstock in the Enchantment palette
The following images that are from "You are Here" were found on Tina Lovel's web site.













If you came here from Jean McNulty's blog you're are on the right path!  The blog hop is a complete circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda's Blog: HERE.
This month we have approcimately 12 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using CTMH products on theri blogs.  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!
Here we go!
I got my idea from CTMH - and used the photo on the top of this blog just prior to all the images.  Inspiration found HERE.
This cricuit set is perfect for all my travels and the places I've lived!  I know for sure I will be using it for a bunch of layouts, but no time now for not much more than an album cover.
I love to travel and have been to South Africa and China.  In September I'm heading to Italy and Greece.  I've been in all the states except Vermont and several of the Canadian provinces.  
For Christmas my love and I are heading to New Jersey where we lived from 1982 - 1995 to visit our daughter. It's been three years seen we've seen each other -- way to long!!  Our kids spent their teen years there, three married and left the nest, leaving their younger brother to travel with Mom and Dad when we moved to Washington.  Naturally, there are lots of memories and we look forward to reliving some and making new.  A trip into NYC to see the lights and a Broadway play is a MUST do!  My daughter lives in Patterson less than an hour from NYC. Through the 50 years we've been married, we lived in 6 states, MI, NY, MT, AK, NJ and WA.  

Now "Hop" on over to Miss. Carrie's Creation's Blog

I used the Basic Fundamental paper, and the Everyday Life Album - Stripes, and the Poppy and Peacock paper from the Enchantment paper pallete, which comes with the You Are Here Cricut Collection.

Color My Heart ~ Color Dare # 268

Fern, New England Ivy, Cranberry, Almond, White Daisy and Optional Gold 
Closes November 16
While working on the CTMH Christmas Card Blog Hop, I thought that the Color Dare #268 colors might work for my card 
and they DID!! WhooHooo!

I used Fern to stamp the image, masked the image and sponged Cramberry for the poinsettia and Almond for the pinecone.  The stamped image was fussy cut and glued to cranberry CS., layered it with New Enland Ivy, Cranberry, Gold Glitter, and more Cranberry.  The gold stripped paper is from the Silver and Gold paper pack. Then, embelished the card with gold ribbon from the Basics Ribbon Pack, and sparkles. The Gold shimmer brush was used the paint the round ornament between the poinsettia and pinecone
