Welcome to our November Blog Hop featuring wonderful goodies from our mini Holidays From the Heart Gift Guide!  There are so many holiday-themed stamps, papers and embellishments, plus some peeks at Spring too!  The hardest part will be choosing what’s on your wish list!  But you'll have to hurry because many of these items will only be available until December 31st!

So join us as my fellow Canadian CTMH consultants show you some fun and festive creations that you can make too!

  • This is a circular hop so you can start here and go all the way around.
  • If you came from rockin’ Rosalynd’s “In My Scrappin’ Room” blog, then you are going in the right direction!
  • And if you want to follow us from coast to coast, then please start at the beginning with Michelle S.’s "My Creations with Michelle" blog.  The complete blog list is also found here if you get lost along the way. 


This month, I played with the Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape.  Well, can I tell you how much I LOVE Washi Tape?  It's easy to use -- self adhesive but if you make a mistake, you can pull it up and start again.  So versatile!  And so stinkin' CUTE!  I love the 3 patterns in the Sparkle & Shine set -- and they don't have to be limited to the Holiday season too.

So I made some cards.  Then I made a frame that I'm going to put a magnet on and put on my fridge (see my handsome hubby??).  Then I made bookmarks using paperclips.  Then I decorated tea lights.  And if I had more time, I could go on and on!

Haven't tried Washi Tape?  Now is the time!  They would make GREAT stocking stuffers too.


Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is the bling-tastic Brae’s “The Brae-er” blog.

Please 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.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, paper and techniques seen along the way. Join us again on December 15 when we will be featuring items that would make fantastic gifts.


  1. What fabulous ideas! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I love your use of washi tape I was thinking the same thing with the tea lights, what a great but simple way to decorate around the house or office. You have done a wonderful job with all of your projects.

  3. I have GOT to get me some Washi Tape!! Your projects are gorgeous!!!

  4. Okay, wrapping the tealights in Washi tape is pure genius!!

  5. I love your washi cards!! Even better now that CTMH announced that there are actually 15 yards of tape on each :)

  6. I recently used the Sparkle and Shine washi tape to make a bunch of cards and love it! You came up with some great idea's for using the washi, I am now inspired to go forth and decorate!

  7. Great projects, Sheri!! Very cool/quick tea light idea!
