Confetti Wishes 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 in Cochrane, Alberta.
This month's challenge is based on the Confetti Wishes paper pack, brought to you by the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book and hand picked by Nancy Klein.
If you came from Valerie's blog then you're in the right place, but since this is a circular blog hop, you can start anywhere! Just in case, the complete list of hoppers will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, or water, relax, and hop around the team with us.
This month, I wanted to do the Confetti Wishes Workshop on the Go and realized my Artbooking cartridge has been borrowed so I opted for my own layout. And here it is! I used the Kraft cardstock as the base and a 4.25" X 12" piece of Canary.

I LOVE the paper with the candles and just cut around the edge to get the wavy effect. The circles are cut with the CTMH 1 1/4" circle punch and stamped with the circles in the Confetti Wishes WOTG stamp set using Lagoon, Pear, and Thistle. Oh Happy Day and the Celebrate banner were stamped with Lagoon directly onto the cardstock.

I am really happy with how this washie tape/shimmer trim combo turned out! I stuck a piece of shimmer trim onto a piece of the CTMH Gold Dot Washie Tape and then cut it into the banner. 

 I added a couple of the little square dots from the Confetti Wishes Assortment too. The circles needed something and I think this adds just the right touch!

The Confetti Wishes Assortment that comes with the WOTG is so cute!! I love the stitching and layering used to make them really pop! 

Thanks for joining us this month and come back next month to see what creative projects we can bring to you!
