Welcome to our August Blog Hop featuring creations using up our stash with some new products.
We have an amazing group of talented ladies all across Canada and they would sure love to hear from you. So, before you hopping along to the next stop in the hop, be sure to leave a comment about what you loved.
If you've arrived from Dominique's post then you are in the right place. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop and travel from East to West, you can start here at Michelle's post.
To purchase any of the items you see along the hop today, be sure to get in touch with your local consultant.
The first pages I turn to in each new idea book are those featuring the new paper collections. If you are a regular visitor, then it probably comes as no surprise that my favourite collection in the new idea book is the Basics Fundamentals - I love the new neutral palette collection.
So, today I am sharing a card I created with several of the papers in that collection.
I also used the new White Pearls for my embellishments on the sentiment panel - which by the way is one of the mini stamps in the new idea book. ps. For the layout I used the August Viva La Verve sketch.
In addition to the Basics Fundamentals, my eye was also drawn to the Adventure Fundamentals for this card.
The heart print, blossom and lagoon papers are from the new Adventure Fundamentals collection. The polka dot mat is from an older, textured Adventure Fundamentals.
You might recognize the "Sweet Birthday" stamps and Thin Cuts as well. These make for a quick card make when you need a birthday card "toot sweet"! (sorry, I couldn't help making the pun).
And, of course, some white dots for embellishment.
That's it for me! Your next stop in the hop is Diana - enjoy the rest of the hop!
If you get lost along the way, you can head on over to Michelle's post as she has the full list of hop participants.

We hope you will be able to join us again next month when we will be featuring creations using products from the new Holiday Expressions Idea Book. So mark September 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.
