August 2015 Cross Canada Blog Hop - Summer Fun

Welcome from Nova Scotia to our August Blog Hop featuring Summer Fun projects. We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers... Thank you!

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 at If you came from Michelle's blog then you are in the right place!

My summer fun thing to do is travel......well really, it's an all year thing for me, but I had hoped to travel a little more this summer since my husband is now retired.  It didn't quite work out that way, repairs to our home have kept us local but I did do a workshop with a travel theme.   Hopefully I will have some "wanderful" photos to add soon!  This first layout I am showing you is the last one created with my paper pack:

The workshop featured the Wanderful paper packCompliments, and accessories and a little stamping, and is perfect for my travel photos this summer.  I used the WOTG stamp set, along with the May SOTM - "Just Sayin", both retired.   I also used our Mini that thing!  The staples are so tiny....can you see them?  The next layout is one that I CASed from Brenda Rose and modified to fit my needs:
This one was lots of fun, incorporating our Black Arrow Washi Tape and a couple of cool techniques.  Love how the patterned paper is cut so that you don't loose the design in the bottom right hand corner!  Lastly, the workshop attendees did this layout that we made at our Thrive event with Brae Montgomery in Barrie, ON....

I love the layering of the papers and the use of so many of the compliments & accessories stickers on this layout!  No stamping at all on this one!   This workshop used the entire pack of paper and I  added a couple of sheets of colonial white and flaxen cardstock.  However, there is very little paper left over and I will be making PML cards with that!  Love it when I can use something me the liberty to buy more! With our new catalogues set to launch in a couple of weeks, I will want lots more!!

Most of the products I've used are still available, some are retiring the end of the month. Just click on the products mentioned to purchase.  I have one kit left if anyone local is interested in it!  

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nicky of Timeless Cottage.  If 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. Join us again next month when we will be featuring our favourite new Paper Collections. Mark September 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
