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


  1. Nice layout! Love how you layered your die-cuts in the corners.

  2. This is beautifully crafted. I especially like the details you placed on the right page with that diagonal cut, and the cluster. Wow!

  3. So pretty!! I love the little clusters in the corners! They pick up the colours in the photos so well...
