HOTW - August Blog hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The hearts of the west team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is Jackson paper pack, 
found in our Seasonal Expressions #2, available until the end of August.

If you came from Anna's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

Here is what I created this time with this great paper pack.

All 5 cards are made with one sheet of  B&T paper.

The first 3 cards are different variations on a gate fold card.

These next 2 are simple masculine birthday cards I created when playing the other night.

  • Stamp sets 
    • C1610 Dizzy Circles
