October's Hearts of the West Blog Hop featuring Sangria

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. If you have been here before welcome back.  It features Close to my Heart Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is using the Sangria Paper Pack, brought to you from the brand new Annual Inspirations.  This paper is perfect for fall, feminine, heritage, and Christmas.

If you came from Donna's Blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

I would like to share with you 3 projects I made using the Sangria Paper Pack.

Sangria Complements

Workshops on the Go Sangria Scrapbooking Kit

First up is a card I created using the Sangria paper pack, Eggplant, and Sorbet Exclusive Ink Pads, the gold foil tape, White Daisy and Champange cardstock, and A Thousand Thanks stamp set.  If you would like to make this card, we will be making it in my card club that is meeting Oct 30th.  Contact me if you are interested in joining us.

Next up is another Thank You card using the Sangria paper pack, Eggplant, Pomegranate and Sorbet Exclusive Ink Pads, the gold foil tapeWhite Daisy and Champange cardstock, and A Thousand Thanks stamp set.  The textured streaks are from ink on a baby wipe swiped across the background and edges.  

Lastly, I created an Invitation for hosting a Chocolate Lovers Party.  If you are interested in booking a Chocolate Lovers Party with me, I will make you invitations like this to invite everyone with. Do you like to have fun with friends, do you love CTMH products, do you want to get some free and discounted products?  Then hosting a party is for you.  Let me know if you would like to have a different theme and I can make it happen.  I would love to help you get some free and discounted goodies.

The October Stamp of the Month is called Twinkle.  In October with a $50 qualifying purchase you can purchase it for $6.  It can also be purchased for $21.25 for the month of October only.

I am once again designing and prepping for my Christmas Card Buffet. Last year I had 15 different cards to choose from this year I plan to have at least 15 if not more. So, it is all you can make in the 3 hours for $30. It is a lot of fun. You get to choose what you want to make just like when you go to a food buffet. I will be posting pictures as I get the cards designed. Dates in October are October 27th 7-10pm, October 28th 7-10pm or October 30th 10am-1pm. I will be doing some in November too, just haven't figured out the dates yet. Also, I can bring the card buffet to ladies groups, mom's groups, seniors homes, or to you and your friends. Everything is pre-cut for you. I have 6 spots in each of these time slots.  Watch my Facebook page for the pictures and more dates.  Contact me if you are interested in any of these.

Thanks for joining us this month and come back next month to see what creative projects we can bring to you! Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.
