Welcome to our August Blog Hop featuring artwork created from products found in the 2017-2018 Annual Inspirations Catalog. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning which this month is Michelle. If you came from Michelle's "Creations With Michelle, you are in the right spot!


Well gang, here we are with a brand spankin' new Idea Book!!! IT'S SO PRETTY!!!! If you haven't checked it out yet, get at it !!

Are you back and ready for some inspiration? Ok let's go!! There are so many wonderful new items, I was a little overwhelmed as to where to start, but I thought about where I would tell people to start, how many pictures am I working with? From there I went to the brand new "Make it From Your Heart Vol3" to find a pattern that would work with that number (36 new patterns!!). 


 I chose pattern 35, and the new Whimsy fundamentals and 2 toned cardstock since they matched the pictures best. For accents I used blush ribbon, whisper twine, and then the phenomenal triple layer stamp "Beautiful You"








I did cheat a little, if we are being honest, my title is the SOTM from last Seasonal Expression.. But doesn't it look awesome with the gold embossing over watercoloured background?? I used watercolour paper and a water brush, and pushed the inkpads to get ink on the lids where I could pick it up.






Your next stop on the hop is Dominique at "Fun2cre8" If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, http://mycreationswithmichelle.blogspot.ca, as she has the complete blog list. 

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Projects inspired from the New Products from the New Holiday Expressions Catalog. So mark September 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

Great use of the stamps and paper to complete the layout. Like the watercolor title, and the 3 step flowers are very nicely done.

I love the floral cluster - the choice of colours is perfect for your layout. The other embellishments finish it off nicely.
