Yesterday and Today

Welcome to the March Cross Canada Blog Hop and our paper selection this month - Yesterday and Today. As you hop through, if you see a technique or product you would like to know more about, or just want to provide some feedback, please leave a comment! If you require an answer, we will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you got here from Brandi's blog, you are on the right track, but if you get lost along the way just return to Michelle in Nova Scotia where you will find the list of bloggers. 

I fell in love with the Yesterday and Today paper as soon as I saw it in the March/April 2020 catalogue. It lends itself beautifully to heritage scrapbooking but it is also awesome for the card makers out there! So I completed one of the layouts from the Yesterday and Today Scrapbooking Workshop Kit (G1197) with my own twist, and then made a card suited to a male or female with some of the leftovers. I left the sentiment off the card as I feel it can be used for a birthday, as a thank you card, an anniversary card, or even a sympathy card. I will be making several more similar so they are available when needed. 

This layout is just waiting for photos of my mom and dad. The left page will highlight their wedding in 1951 and the right page will have more recent photos from before they passed in 2003 and 2014. Any colouring on the pages was done with our Shin Han markers.

I wasn't sure about the card at first but decided I really like the Eggplant cardstock with the antique looking paper. I coloured the flower and leaves using our Shin Han markers.

That's it for me this month. Come back and hop again next month when we will highlight the Seas the Day paper! This paper is perfect for seaside or even lakeside vacations. For a sneak peek of the paper, you can check out the website for your local Close to my Heart consultant. In the meantime, head over to Valerie's blog for some more great Yesterday and Today artwork!


  1. Beautiful layout. Love the addition of the envelope. What a great idea. The flowers are gorgeous.

  2. I like the idea of adding a pop of colour to the neutral paper collection! Great projects!
