Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

I would like to share with you some layouts and cards I made using the Calypso Workshop Your Way Kit,  White Daisy cardstock,  Canary, Thistle, Pixie, Lagoon, Peacock, Sorbet, and Pear ink, Black Memento ink,  Shinhan Twin Touch markers (blender, Leaf green, Golden Yellow, Peacock Green, Barely Beige, Tender Pink, Peony Purple, and Clay)  Stamp sets (Beach Life, Tickled Pink, One in a Melon, Rain or Shine, Beyond Awesome, Enjoy the Ride, Day for Dad, Typography, and Hopscotch Alphabet) liquid glass and thin foam tape.

Layout 1 using the Workshop Your Way Guide.  I switched the sides of some of the papers.

A layout I designed using the leftover zip strips and scraps of paper with the addition of 2 sheets of White Daisy for the base pages.

Cards using the original cards from the Workshop Guide and then changing it up with different stamps and positioning of the papers.
