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 Julie Sinnott at If you came from Kathy Skipper of It's a Girl Thing then you are in the right place! 

I decided to dress up my Designed Decor Red Magnetic Chalkboard for the Winter season! This is a great gift! I kept the paper 12 inches in length so I can tuck it into the sides so it is their temporarily and I can change it out based on the holiday or season! 

Designed Decor Red Magnetic Chalkboard - Z2006 - $31.75
Snowhaven Paper Packet - X7188B - $10.95
Snowhaven Complements - X7188C - $5.50
Snowhaven Assortment - Z3008 - $7.75
Black Shimmer Trim - Z1809 - $5.50
Black & Tan Glitter Paper (to make the glittery snowflake border) - Z1830 - $6.50
Cricut Artbooking Cartridge - Z1906 - $109 (I absolutely LOVE this versatile cartridge! Put it on your wish list for Christmas!)
3D Foam Tape - Z1151 - $6.50
Magnets (I already had some that I repurposed to make the Snowhaven Assortment badges into magnets)

Because the decoration is temporary, I can also tuck things into the "pocket" - perfect for Christmas cards and notes!

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Julie Sinnott of 12x12 Travels.
 If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle 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 Décor for Christmas.  So mark December 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

  1. Totally love this. Love the cut with the Black glitter paper. Fantastic.

  2. So pretty. Love the idea of dressing up the chalk board and with not adhering the paper, so it can be changed. Great idea

  3. Fun and fancy... adorable. Love the magnets!
