July Blog Hop Magical

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 Heart Consultants from all over Canada
showing you their projects. The hearts of the west team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is the Calypso paper pack, brought to you by the Expressions 2 2016, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Corinna Murphy 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 used the Magical Workshops Your Way to make the following pages. I have yet to put the photos on and journal. I hope to have them done sometime soon. 

I got 3 -2 page spreads, card scrapbook pages and 9 cards out of one workshop with some paper and bits left over. I am going to start putting all the bits into a container and use them on other pages and in my workshops. 

I love these as they are quick and you do not have to stamp unless you wish to.

For the cards I have used a discontinued stamp set A1136 Card Chatter Focus on You and C1631 Birthday Princess as I do not have the stamp set Fairytale Birtday B1534. I used used Glacier ink, Archival black, Shin Han Markers to colour the Princess. 




Your next stop Nancy Klein is  Blog.

Thanks for joining us this month and come back next month
to see what creative projects we can bring to you! Thank you
for stopping by and please feel free to leave a comment.

I look forward to checking out all the blogs that participate. Enjoy and have fun!

Stamping with Misti

Hello Everyone,

I have been having fun with the MISTI. Like I said it sat in my scrap room for a long time. I tried it and didn't like it much. I have watched some videos on youtube and now use it quite often.

I used CTMH products-inks, thin cuts, stamp sets, and Cricut cartridges.

I did the cut outs first. I then put the piece with the negative space into the MISTI, lined up the stamp in the space, closed it so the stamp would stick to the door section, then put the cut out into the space, inked the stamp and stamped on the shape. Made it very easy to do.  It lined it up quite nicely.

I also stamped onto cards. I was making more than one of the same card so once the stamp was where I wanted it on the card I closed the MISTI so the stamp would stick to the door then  inked the stamp and stamped away. The image was in the same spot on each card. I did not show them here as they are going to be on my blog hop for July.

I will always have my blocks as they come in handy for stamping on larger pages and items.

Have fun stamping and have a great week.
