June's Hearts of the West Blog Hop

   Welcome to The Hearts of the West Team blog hop. June Edition!  I'm so excited to be in this blog hop as its my very first one!!!

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

   If you came from 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.

   For this blog hop I decide to do a scrapbook layout. I don't do a lot of scrapbook layouts but I wanted to challenge myself and the colours seemed the right choice for these pictures.

   For this layout I used Blush cardstock for the background paper. In the corners I used an old SOTM called Baroque Border in Hollyhock ink. I than used CTMH Artiste Cricut cart to cut the dollie at 11" in white cardstock.

   I used white and hollyhock cardstock to mat the pictures. For the banner in the top corner, I cut by hand strips of  Barn Red, Olive, Sky and Crystal Blue cardstock to make the banners. I used CTHM Artbooking Cricut cart to cut Hailey's name. I punched small holes in each corner and weaved the banner with  Smoothie twine. I used some retired designer rhinestone brads hang the banner from. I also used 3D foam tape under each banner to give it dimension.

    For the bottom of the page, I made another banner using the same cardstock but adding some printed paper from the Ariana paper Packet.  I cut each banner by hand  but I used the Artbooking cart to cut out the sweet and Little banner. I used some Bitty Sparkles on the edge of the Sweet and Little banners. I also used 3D foam tape to pop up some of the banners. I some retired Hollyhock flower ribbon on top of the banner.
