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 Sheri of Sheri says - just scrap it then you are in the right place!

For this hop we decided to create a boxed card set, let's face it any excuse to use the Cricut, scraps from other projects and heat embossing we are on board as we are still trying to perfect the art. Below you will see 3 sets made using Kraft Paper as the base. It's amazing how versatile some of the papers are with just the basics.

Supplies Used:

Art Philosophy Cartridge
Artiste Cartridge
various colors embossing powder
heat embossing tool
