Hearts of the west - Oct blog hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. If you have been here before welcome back.  It features Close to my Heart Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is using the Sangria Paper Pack, brought to you from the brand new Annual Inspirations.  This paper is perfect for fall, feminine, heritage, and Christmas.

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

Here is what I created with this beautiful paper pack.

I love the fun fall colours in this kit!!

Here is a list of the products I used to create my layout:
  • Sangria Paper Pack  - X7199B
  • Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge
  • Charming Cascades Stamp set - D1668
  • CTMH's Cardstock and ink in - Sapphire, Fern Saffron (*New Colours)
  • Fundamental Stickers - Enchantment Pack - Z3164
  • Sponge Daubers (Awesome Tool for inking) - Z726

I am in the process of designing and prepping for my Christmas Card Buffet. I hope to have at least 15 different cards to choose from. So, it is all you can make in the 3 hours for $30 ($15 with a minimum purchase of $25). It is a great way to get a buch of Christmas Cards done and will be a lot of fun, . You get to choose what you want to make just like when you go to a food buffet. I will be posting pictures as I get the cards designed. I will post my dates for October and November, I just haven't figured out the dates yet. 


 I can bring the card buffet to ladies groups, mom's groups, seniors homes, or to you and your friends. Everything is pre-cut for you. I have 6 spots in each of these time slots. 

Your next stop is Anna's Blog. Thanks for joining us this month and come back next month to see what creative projects we can bring you.

Thank-you for stopping by and please leave a comment.

Love and Inky Hugs

Cross Canada September Hop

Welcome to our September Blog Hop featuring our favourite NEW CTMH Paper Packets. We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers.....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you came from Janet's Blog, then you are in the right place!

I love all the New CTMH Paper Packets, but i had it narrowed down to 2 but as the next hop I'm participating is using Sangria so I decided to use Kaleidoscope. 

I am really happy with how it turned out it is nice and girly and I think it may have inspired a scrapbook page to come soon. 

 The next card came of just playing with scraps and new tools. It's kinda fun so i'm sharing.

I used Close To My Heart's Kaleidoscope Paper Packet with CTMH Pixie, Pear and Gypsy  cardstock.

I used CTMH's Finding the Words stamp set, CTMH's new Confetti embossing folder Cricut Artiste collection and CTMH's scallop border punch. I also added a bit of bling with CTMH's New Enamel and Glitter Duos (Purple Hearts) and Purple Glitter gems (retired product).

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nancy's Blog

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 our newest Cricut Cartridge - Artistry.

So, mark October 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
