February Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. 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 the Brushed Paper Pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Janet McCormick'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.

Your next stop is Valerie Kapsha's Blog 

Here is my spin on the Creative Insider Brushed Layout.  I love the Diamond side of this paper, it is so much fun.

 This is a card I created for my Creative Coffee Time.  I also created this card using the Brushed Paper, Cranberry and White Daisy Cardstock.  I rounded 2 of the corners on each square.  The edges of the Cranberry cardstock is sanded.  I stamped the White Daisy cardstock using the Assorted Edges stamp set and Pixie ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Black ink and from the Your Own Kind Of Wonderful stamp set.  The edges are inked using Hollyhock ink.  I used the pattern from pg. 43 of Make It From Your Heart™ Volume 2  I love using this book for ideas.

If you would like to join me for Creative Coffee Time it is every Wednesday from 1 pm to 2 pm.  We will make a card and have coffee for $5 or free with a $20 order.

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.

I have entered the Blogging World

Come and join me as I begin this new adventure.

It is a new year and a time to try new things.  I am excited to try new things and to share them with you.

I am a busy mom of 3 wonderful children and being creative is my "Me Time".  It is how I de-stress. It is also how I show my love to others.  Over the years I have created far more things for others as gifts than for myself.  I love to give something handmade as a gift.

I am an Independent Consultant with Close to My Heart.  I signed up as a consultant in April 2014 and absolutely love it.  I love Close to My Heart and their products.  I will be sharing lots of projects on here using CTMH products.  I also, teach different scrapbooking, cardmaking, and mini album classes.  I will be posting upcoming classes and workshops on here.  If you are interested in hosting a Gathering and earning free product let me know.

I look forward to inspiring you and serving you.
