Welcome to our December Blog Hop featuring Christmas Decor.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

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 My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Chris' Creative Life then you are in the right place! 

I was inspired to make this project after seeing one made by Megan DiFeo. You can check out her YouTube video here.

Thanks Megan for allowing me to share your creation too!

Every year our family receives so many fabulous Christmas cards. I wanted a way to better preserve them and this was just the ticket! I love how many will be able to fit into this album and that they can be any shape or size. To decorate the cover, I used the Yuletide Carol Paper Pack, Yuletide Carol Assortment and Red Shimmer Trim.  I created the title from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and simply set my dial size to 7". This will cut out the title in proportion to a 7" awesome is that?! 

The Kraft Album is 8 5/8 x 9 and is perfect to also be able to use with 8 x 8 Cricut scrapbook pages.

I created a template to be able to use when I hole punch all of my cards. 

Here's a visual of the dimensions of where my holes are punched.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Terry Ann Diack's~ Just a Tad Crafty.
If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, My Creations with Michelle, as she has the complete blog list.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Valentine’s Day creations.  So mark January 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
