July Cross Canada Blog Hop - Into The Wild

Welcome to our July Cross Canada Blog Hop featuring artwork created using the Into the Wild collection. 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 and I am the first stop when you are hopping from East Coast to West Coast. If you came from Kristine's blog then you are in the right place!

For my project I decided to pull a layout from the Make It From Your Heart how to book, I used Layout 3 from Volume 3.  The stamp set used is called Summer Memories (D1858).  The base is Mink cardstock, and I've used colours found in the paper collection, Fern and Sapphire both in cardstock and ink.  I've used gold sequins and White Burlap Ribbon to embellish the layout.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Sheena, you can find her blog here!

If you get lost along the way, I've provided the full blog hop listing found below.


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. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring artwork using the Craft On collection. So mark August 10th on your calendars and hop along with us.
