HWHB July's Edition


Welcome back to the Hearts of the West team blog hop July edition. If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close to my heart consultants from the hearts of the west and team members from all over Canada and is founded by Nancy Klein. This month's challenge is a celebration of our beloved Country's Birthday!


A fun little fact...Canada is turning 147 years old. This month our challenge is using red and white.


This month is a challenge for sure, we are able to use the basic color pallet for accent colors. Grab your coffee, sit down and join us on a journey of creative paper crafts from the Heart! 


If you came from Nancy Klein's Blog You're in the right place, this is a go around blog so you can start anywhere you'd like. The full list is at the end in case.


This is my banner i made from some new and retired items, if you follow me i am a huge fan of revisiting some of my old favorites! In this case i used an older mini banner made out of chip board. I also used the Canada Celebrations  and last month's SOTM (stamp of the month) called Kaboom. Don't miss out on this months SOTM! Click here to learn how to get one. 


Here is the Canada Day banner i made and will use year after year! 




I used a wonderful color called Cranberry, plus White Daisy, Whisper and Black. This was mostly done on the Cricut Machine, here is a tip...all of our Cricut coordinating stamps are still available even the older one. Check it out in my store 





Of course nothing is finished with out some sparkle..so i just added a few...well maybe more then a few...Maybe too much? Naw...ha!


One last picture of my banner, this is not an easy task taking pictures of it. So i just stuck it up and hoped for the best!





Your next creative stop is Corinna's blog
