Halloween and Fall CTMH Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to the •MAKE•IT•Crafty• Seasonal Blog Hop!


This month we will be featuring Halloween and Fall creations. If you have arrived from Wendy Dodd's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here

This month we have a number of Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using various CTMH products to help you get in a Spooktacular mood for Fall and Halloween.

I always work on school layouts in September. For this multipage spread I used all of the new Chalk It Up products in the new Annual Inspirations idea book. I combined traditional layouts with pocket pages so I would be able to include photos from an entire school year in one collection. I even made a cure little mini album for the class trip using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.
