August - Across Canada Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,
     Welcome to the August Blog Hop featuring NEW Products from Close to My Hearts just released Annual Inspirations catalog! If you would like to purchase any items seen in our hop please contact your local consultant. If you do not have one I'd be happy to help :) ..... now to the hop... it is circular so if you just started you can keep following, or if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning then start with Michelle Stewart. If you are joining me
from Nicky Scott's blog then you are in the right place! When your done here please
go to Alyson's blog and see her creations.  
   I am sharing some cards made with the New fundamentals papers, at first I didn't know what to make of them, but they are so easy to use on cards with the universal patterns!! I haven't started scrapbooking but I think it will make it easier to match photos with papers! Here are some of my cards...The hipo is from Safari Ballet A1180, paper pieced and marker coloured.
New happy birthday stamp set B1537 called Birthday sparkles on page 37 in the new book...

Same happy birthday stamp set but used the ink blot stamp set D1660 on page 68

I used the new thin cuts for the hello....THIS card is my favourite. No stamping.....gasp!
 again the safari ballet stamp set and paper pieced the tutu.... simple but cute girl card
 this layout is found on page 54 in the new idea book, and Vicki Wizniuk's blog as well....

I hope you like them and get some inspiration! Which one (or two) do you like the best? I would love to know.....Please continue on our hop to                    blog to see MORE great inspiration. If you get lost along the way you can go to Michelle Stewart's blog . Next month on Sept 15th we will meet again and show you School themed projects, cards, and layouts so mark you calendars.

  5. Love your cards, especially the hippos from Safari ballet.

  6. I love all of them - not sure I can choose a favourite but I think it is probably the ink blot birthday card - the others are a very close second, though! They are all great :)
