June Cross Canada Blog Hop - Use Up Your Stash

Welcome to our June Blog Hop featuring artwork where we've used our stash mixed with new products. 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, I'm also the first stop when you are hopping across Canada.  

At first I was really unsure about what I would use to create my project for this blog hop....but then an email was sent home from my oldest daughter's school saying that the guidance counselor was retiring, and there are a few teachers moving to other schools.  Jaymee asked if I could make a retirement card for her to take in.  So now I have a theme. 

So I pulled the No Worries Cardmaking stamp set which is the New product I used, it also has a coordinating Thin Cut.  I pulled my scrap box out to set what I had for older retired product, and found some Seaside paper(which I loved and wished I had more of).  I pulled a few colors from the collection.  I used a piece of Lagoon for the mat for the images and sentiment. The umbrella is stamped in Crystal Blue and Smoothie, I used Saffron ink for the lounge chair.  The sentiment is just stamped in Black ink.  The umbrella and chair were cut out using the thin cuts, and then I paper pieced the Crystal Blue onto the Smoothie cut.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Colleen, who is also in Nova Scotia, actually just on the other side of the Halifax Harbour.

  1. I loved that Seaside paper, too! Your two-toned beach balloon is awesome! Jaymee's teacher will love her card.

  2. These two collections definitely make for a wonderful combination!

  3. Love it!! Isn't this a great stamp set? I used it to make a retirement card for a fellow at work who retired last week. Everyone loved it!



I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
