August Heart's 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. 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 Jackson Paper Pack, brought to you from the Seasonal Expressions 2, hand picked by Nancy Klein.  This paper is available until August 31 while supplies last so don't delay if you want some to play with.
If you came from Holly'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 2 - 2 page layouts I made using the Workshops on the Go Jackson Scrapbook Kit and the Artbooking Cricut Collection.  I also used Liquid Glass, Glacier, Juniper, and Barn Red Inks.

Love how a little inking of edges adds definition to the trees.

The top one is made with the stamp set that comes in the workshop.  The bottom 2 are from the zip strip on the one paper.  Love these.  

In August with a $50 qualifying purchase you can purchase it for $5.  It can also be purchased for $19.75 for the month of August only.  I will be posting tomorrow the new Cricut Cartridge that these images can be cut with.  It is available tomorrow.  Visit me on Facebook tomorrow for the big reveal.

Also, in August are these brand new accessory roll-ups to help you get organized.  They are our Constant Campaign and when our order one of them you get other new products for free.  Who can argue with that.  I love the Balloon Wishes stamp set that you can get for free with the marker roll-up.
The are available to order August 1st.

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.
