Cross Canada Blog Hop: Favourite things!

Welcome to the August Cross Canada Blog Hop! If you have come from Krista’s blog then you are on the right path.

This month we are featuring our favourite new item- honestly I had a really hard time picking just ONE item so I kind of did a work around 🙂

My favourite thing is our NEW ‘Make it From Your Heart-Volume 3’ how-to book! If you have never seen one of our how-to books then you are missing out! These are perfect for inspiration and ideas when you need JUST the right layout! Both of my layouts featured here are from the new book (and there are so many to choose from!!!!)

My first page also features our new Fundamental papers, Bashful (our colour of the year for this year!) and some cuts from our ‘You are Here’ Cricut Cartridge (LOVE THIS ONE TOO!)

My comic-con layout also uses new Fundamentals, the Cricut Cartridge (for font and the city skyline) BUT I also used some of the Jack Paper Pack to get just the right look.

Now, can I share a secret with you?

The ‘Make it from Your Heart’ book has some extra features in the back- patterns for pocket scrapbooking AND patterns for pages that was to use our Page Protector Plus system! BOTH the layouts I used here use of of the Page Protector Plus- you can see more in the video posted below!


I hope you enjoyed my favourite item!

Now hop on over to Carol’s blog for more great inspiration!

August Stamp of the Month: School Year

For many, it is that time of year again- Back to school! Not for us here in the ‘Great White North’ though. A few more weeks of beautiful summer vacation before September and school arrives! To prepare for the school year and those great back to school pictures, we bring you the August Stamp of the Month, ‘School Year’.

I love how this stamp set is not only great for the back to school photos BUT also for the last day of school photos that have become so popular! I got busy with this set and created a simple one page layout using my kids photos from last school year and some of our new product from the Annual Idea book.

Featured Product: Adventure Fundamentals, School Year Stamp of the Month, Enchantment Fundamentals, Block Alphabet Thin Cuts.

The pattern used for this layout is from the Make It From Your Heart- Volume 3.

Don’t you just love that my photogenic youngest is the pouting child and the teen is actually smiling! Share your favourite back to school photos in the comments below!
