June Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to The Hearts of the West Team Blog Hop
June Edition!

This month's color challenge has been picked by Nancy Klein.  It's a soft color pallet perfect for this time of year. The project is open to our choice in order to keep it simple.  You're in for a treat, so grab your coffee, sit down and hop with the Hearts of the West ladies!

If you came from Sonja Parent St Jean's post then you're on the right track! This is a circular blog hop, if you get lost or want to start at the beginning. You can find the list down below.

When I saw the colors for this month's challenge , I instantly thought of the Ariana Paper Collection, so I started there.

absolutely love the little bows in the Ariana Assortment embellishments, so I wanted to incorporate them in my project as well.

I hoped to try a scrapbook layout, but time was extremely tight (running with Spring activities) so I went with a card :)  To put things together quickly, I also chose to use a pattern from the "Originals" Card Layout Idea Book - "Diamond Stack" on page 37.

CTMH layout books were one of the products that made me want to be become a consultant - 
 I love 'em!!  With the measurements already done for you, it makes putting a card together quick and easy!   Here is what I came up with:

Supplies (all are CTMH unless otherwise noted):

Paper:  Colonial White, Crystal Blue, Barn Red, Ariana Paper Pack
Embellishments: Ariana Assortment (Z3002
Ink: Hollyhock, Olive, Blush
Stamp Sets: Happy Autumn (D1550), Swirls Around (D1551), Fabulous You (C1533)

To order any of these products, please follow this link and shop online!  Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to comment . . . we just love reading them!
