July Cross Canada Blog Hop

Welcome to our July Blog Hop featuring Summer Albums.  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 do.  By 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. If you came from Terry Ann then you are in the right place!

For my Summer Album I was inspired by one I saw on The Wizard's Hangout and followed the tutorial found on Get Creative with Traci

I used the Jubilee paper pack, Cashmere cardstock, Cashmere ink, Tropical Bakers Twine, and the Rosewood Mini-Medley.  The title was cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.

This is the front cover

This shows it opened up, under each flap is a pocket for a card on which you can add a picture.  You could also add pictures to the front of the left and right pocket.  On the front of the middle pocket is a pocket for a mini card.

This is the back which has two more mini pockets to hold full sized cards.

Finally, this is a picture showing  the flaps up and the card held inside.  Just to let you know, I've only added a couple of pictures because I will be adding more from our summer activities in August.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Julie

 If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog,  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 alternative uses for Picture My Life cards.   So mark August 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.


  1. Great job Deanne, really cute mini-album.

  3. Great way to save the summer memories!

  4. Super cute mini album....I have one started, hoping to finish it this weekend.
