Welcome to our April Brae-ers Team Blog Hop, showing off our favourite things!  Inspired by the Sound of Music song (Raindrops on roses, andwhiskers on kittens...  I can hear all of you singing it now!) and our love of CTMH's amazing products, this hop will share with you some of our "must have" items.  And because each of us have a different favourite thing, you're going to see a wide range of crafty things and creations that are sure to inspire you.

Let's get hopping!  (Are you still singing too?  GREAT!)

  • This is a circular hop so you can start here and go all the way around.

HERE'S MY PROJECT: Hot Dog Layout using RIBBON

If you've ever met and scrapped with me, you know that my #1 obsession is ribbon.  I collect it, I use it, I can't stay away from it.  So when I started to create this layout, I wanted to make the ribbon a big part of it.

I love the new Topiary chevron ribbon!  It's a great width with a different pattern.  And it worked wonderfully with the Jubilee paper pack.  I punched holes through all the layers and laced the ribbon through like shoelaces.  I finished the ends like shoelaces too, using Washi tape.

I also love Liquid Glass.  Sometimes I use a lot, and sometimes, I use just a little to add some emphasis.  The ketchup on this hot dog is just the right touch for this layout.

My all-time favourite stamp is called "Journaling Jots".  It was different stamps with lines on it, ideal for creating neat, straight journaling on any layout.  This stamp set is retired, but it will always live in my stamp collection ... and my heart.

And one of my favourite techniques, is using a border stamp along the edges of a layout.  It adds a nice finish, just like these stars from the "Fancy Fair" stamp set.

Lastly, the subject is one of my most favourite people, eating his (and my) most favourite foods: BBQ'd hot dogs.  Love you, Charlie Beans.

  11. Hi Sheri! I am new on the team and having fun checking out everyone's blogs and learning a little bit more about CTMH. I loved your layout...thought it was adorable! I am planning to have card workshops/crops in my home as well and wondered if I might be able to 'pick your brain' for some ideas? Don't worry...I live in Fort Erie...so it will be a totally different gang from yours. LOL
