November HOTW Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my Heart Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is using the Yuletide Carol Paper Pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Terry Ann Diack's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.




This pillow box was created using the Art Philosophy Cartridge and Cricut Craft Room to make the box big enough to fit my husband's Christmas gift.  The box is made from Yuletide Carol paper.  It was then decorated using a little doily and the Yuletide Carol Compliments.  The Yuletide Carol Compliments are a coordinating stickers that adhere to the box well enough to stick even when the box is full!  The flowers that I used were left overs from the Frosted Assortment.  



My whole family is getting a gift wrapped in a pillow box this Christmas. I pre-made the pillow boxes to prepare for a class I will be teaching in December.  When my husband's gift arrived this week, it didn't fit in the prepared pillow boxes.  This Blog Hop encouraged me to use Cricut Craft Room to make a slightly bigger box.  Now I have one less thing to stress about before Christmas!

 

Your next stop is Janet McCormick's Blog.

Thanks for joining us this month and come back next month to see what creative projects we can bring to you! Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.
