Cross Canada Blog Hop Kaleidoscope

Welcome to our September Blog Hop featuring our favourite paper packs. 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 and join Michelle in Nova Scotia. If you came from Brandy's blog then you are in the right place!

We have six new paper packs in the 2015/2016 Annual Inspirations Idea Book and two more in the 2015 Holiday Expressions Idea Book, and it was so hard to pick a favourite. I finally decided on Kaleidoscope. For this hop I made a one page layout and then played with our Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge. There are so many great images on this cartridge that can be used for both cards and layouts. I picked two of the little pocket cards and cut them in Pixie and Sunset paper then backed them with the Kaleidoscope jelly beans paper.


On the layout, I used Sunset paper as well a piece of Canary paper from the Adventure Paper Fundamentals pack. I also used the Kaleidoscope Complements. 



 This is one of the flowers from the Kaleidoscope Complements that I stuck onto a piece of White Daisy and then cut out and popped up with some 3-D Foam Tape. 



 These little pocket cards are just the right size for a gift card. 



Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Heather's blogIf you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle's blog 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 our newest Cricut Cartridge, Artistry. So mark October 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
