May Cross Canada Blog Hop - Scrapbooking with How To Books

Welcome to our May Blog Hop featuring Jeanette’s How –To Books for scrapbooking.  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 Deanne in Newfoundland.  Deanne also happens to be before me, so if you are joining me from her post, you are moving in the right direction.

For my layout I chose to follow a cutting guide from Make it From Your Heart Volume 1.  The layout is #8 found on page 20.  

I used The Seaside Paper collection, along with some aqua dots and the Seaside Assortment to embellish the page.  I used stamps from the Workshop along with the stamp Treasured Friendship (C1594). This layout will hold 3 photos. Below are closeups of each page.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Rosalynd so hop on over and see what she has prepared for you.

If you get lost you can come back and visit me, as I am providing you with the whole blog hop list.
