September Cross Canada Blog Hop

Welcome to our September Blog Hop featuring artwork created using the Boutique collection in our newest Holiday Expressions Idea Book!!!! To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order. 

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 you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join in at Michelle's Blog.

If you came from Janet's Blog then you are in the right place! 

The colours in this paper collection work well with so many events but in the end, I found this photo of my girl and I when we went to New Orleans for her 21st Birthday last year! 

I stamped the ink blots using the 'Bunches Of Love' Stamp set in Charcoal Ink but then I wanted more splatters so I grabbed the Black Shimmer Brush and gave it a tap to splatter it onto my page...I did that by accident a week ago and discovered it works quite well that way!

I've clustered some heavy sewing machine thread under the chipboard roses...and frayed the Mink Twine on the tags.

I created the tags using our new and FABULOUS 'Fancy Tags' Thin Cuts (LOVE LOVE LOVE them) on the PML cards in the paper pack. 

I could've just hand journaled but then I found our Alpha Stickers from the Story By Stacy Workshop kit...and then I was done!

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. 

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Michelle!

We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring artwork using the Grateful Heart collection. 

So mark October 10th on your calendars and hop along with us.
