Welcome to our very special Blog Hop, featuring papers from the "Dotty For You" promotional paper pack.  I am IN LOVE with this paper, and the only thing limiting my creativity was the time I had to get the projects done before posting.

If you have come here from the talented Karen Fullam's blog "Enriching Memories", you are on the right path! Actually, the blog hop is a great big 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 here.

For this hop, we have 38 fabulous Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using the "Dotty For You" papers and other great CTMH products on their 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! 

Now it's time for my creations!!  I couldn't stop at just one -- here are 5 fun cards that I created:

All 5 of my "Dotty For You" Creations

Inspired by a layout idea provided in the "Dotty For You" kit.
This card also showcases the April Stamp of the Month "You Are"
A wonderful birthday wish for a special girly girl.
Fun for boys too!

Turned sideways for something a little different.
All of these cards are made with 100% CTMH products, including:
  • Dotty For You papers
  • Colonial White, White Daisy and Sweet Leaf cardstock
  • Inks:  Pacifica, Lagoon, Pear, Sunset, Smoothie, Chocolate, Grey Wool, Sky
  • CTMH Watercolour pencils
  • Stamp sets: (starting from the 1st card) Love Life, Say It In Style, You Are, Card Word Puzzle, Magic Adventures, Party Pennants, Paper Lanterns
  • Liquid Glass and Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel
I am on a team that creates cards for seriously sick children at The Hospital for Sick Children here in Toronto.  Birthday cards can really make a sick child's day, especially after undergoing chemotherapy or brain surgery or other such treatment.  So these cards will all be donated for that cause.  The creative challenge for making Kards for Kids?  No embellishments -- they are a choking hazard.  I'm proud to say these creations are great, even without extra bling.

Sadly, it's time to say good-bye.  Please leave a comment below and then "Hop" on over to Michelle Johns' blog "My Flights of Fancy" to see her amazing work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas using "Dotty For You" and some great CTMH goodies! Remember, this gorgeous paper pack is available from April 17 until May 31 -- for only $5 with qualifying purchase.  Email me at to find out how to get yours.

Happy Hopping!

  11. It's very trouble-free to find out any matter on net as compared to books, as I found this piece of writing at this web site.

    Feel free to visit my weblog care-sheet.Com

  12. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.
