Cross Canada Hop: Favourite New Paper Pack

posted in: Layouts | 18

Welcome to another Cross Canada Hop!  After a little break, I’m back participating.  I just couldn’t resist because this month’s theme is our favourite new paper pack.

If you’ve just hopped on my blog, you can start here since the hop is a big circle, but if you want to literally hop across Canada, then pop on over to Michelle’s blog.  If you came from Arlene’s Creative Space then you’re in the right place.  Just keep hopping until you get back to where you started.

I have heard so many people say this new Annual Inspirations catalogue and the Holiday Expressions, are the best we’ve had and I agree.  I have so many favourite paper packs, so I could have chosen quite a few to feature here.  I landed on White Pines, our Christmas paper.  I love the modern twist on a classic colour scheme and pattern.  Here’s the layout I created.

White Pines layout by Krista Ritskes

I have to give the credit to CTMH’s art department for the design of this layout.  I followed what they did almost to a ‘T’.  I added my choice of embellishments on the journaling spot and my own title, cut with my Criuct Explore and Arial Bold font.

Here are a couple of close ups.

The embellishments are from the White Pines Complements pack, which includes Kraft die cuts and acetate die cuts along with 2 sheets of cardstock stickers.  I also added some Gold Sequins.

All these items can now be purchased from your Independent Consultant, or check it out on my website here.

Now it’s time to hop on over to Crafty Carol and check out which paper is her favourite.  Happy Creating!
