September Blog Hop with Close to My Heart

Welcome to our September Blog Hop featuring our Favorite New Things. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

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 Julie at 12 x 12 Travels . If you came from Brandy's Canadian Scrappers then you are in the right place!

I made this fun little card by heat embossing the image first and then colouring in with the markers. The paper is from the Seaside collection.

When I saw the sneakers I knew I would be filling in all the little shapes with colours and the markers are perfect for that.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Terry Ann's Just a TAD Crafty . If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, My Creations with Michelle , 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. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring Trick or Treats,for Halloween. So mark October 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.


  1. Stunning card, I love the detail put into this card. Lovin' the sneakers.

  2. Ha i love how you did the shoes. Too cute! I love the card too!

  3. Adorable shoes!! What a fun project for kids to do. What did you use inside the shoes to create pressure to stamp against?

    1. I bought the shoes at Ardene's with the design already on them - just needed to colour them in with the markers.

  4. Love the shoes. Card is exquisite!
