January Cross Canada Blog Hop Featuring Catolog Recreations from the Seasonal Expressions 1

   Welcome to our January Blog Hop featuring Catalog Recreations. 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 Michelle at My Creations with Michelle. If you came from Michelle's then you are in the right place! 

   For this challenge, I remade the second layout of the Sugar Rush Workshop Your Way kit (shown below)...

...using the Dreamin' Big paperpack, cardstock and Complements.

  It appears in the original that the layout is based on Raspberry cs but it is actually thin strips of the Sugar Rush red Washi tape at the top and bottom of the layout.  I substituted Saffron cs for the Washi.  All the photo sizes (4x6, 3x4) and placements are the same.  While it appears to be black cs in the center of my layout, it is actually the Black Chevron paper from the ppk.  The cs to the immediate right of that is Juniper, although Glacier will work just as well. The Dragonfly journaling spot is actually one of the PML cards provided in the Dreamin' Big ppk.  There is no stamping on this layout - for those who don't like to 'get inky' 😊.

   There are no pictures yet as it is intended to show the explorations of my 9 year old budding scientist.  He just received a microscope kit for Christmas and I know he'll have many adventures collecting and making specimens to explore!

   Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is with Michelle Hughes of The Right Hughes .
If you get lost along the way, you can head back to Michelle Stewart's Blog,, 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 projects featuring succulents and flowers (yea, playtime with my Cricut!). So mark February 15th on your calendars and hop along with us!


  1. Looks good. Love how it demonstrates how the same layout in a different paper has a totally different feel to it.

  2. I really like this layout, its great that you can show how easy it is to use the same cutting guide with different papers.

  3. I agree with Terry Ann. The change in paper really changes the feel of the layout.

  4. Thank You ladies. I was very pleased that this translated so well.
