Jackson - 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 Hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is Jackson paper pack, brought to you by the new Seasonal Expressions 2, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Donna's blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

I really love this paper pack and am sad to see it being retired after the month of August.  I took the paper and looked at how I could create some new fun cards with it.

 I tried to keep them simple as I decided to make these a card kit that will be for sale on my blog and on my facebook page.  I second generation the diamonds with Barn Red ink on the one card and did second generation and regular stamping with Glacier ink on the other.  To add just a bit more fun, I added the ribbon!  I popped up the "Friends Forever" image with 3D Foam to give a little dimension.

Products used:
C1533 Fabulous You
Z2104 Barn Red Ink
Z2641 Glacier Ink

This card kit can be purchase for $12.  Everything will come pre-cut and pre-stamped for you.  This kit has 10 cards, five of each design.  Please email me at if you are interested in purchasing one of these kits.
