Congratulations! You are at the beginning of our Cross Canada Blog Hop. We have some great projects for you to check out featuring some retiring products, you'll want to order fast as these are while supplies last, and many items are already sold out. Enjoy our blog hop!

For my project I used the Canvas Journal and the Scholastic paper packet, both these items are retiring August 1st. First I measured and cut my pieces of patterned paper to fit the dimensions of the journal. Using Liquid Glass I adhered the front piece , and used the Memories Bonding Glue to adhere the inside. I used the Zip Strip to ad a binding, and covered it in Liquid Glass to give it that glossy look. Next I took 3 Durables adhesive Embellishments and added them to the bottom side of the page. Using the Cobblestone Alphabet Stamp Set and the colors Outdoor Denim, Cranberry and Honey, stamped the letters A,B and C then cut them out and adhered them to the cover.

Using the same colors on the inside, I used the Scholastic WOTG stamp set and School is here stamp set to create the inside.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Arlene of Arlene's Creative Space.
