October's Cross Canada Blog Hop

Welcome to our October Cross Canada Blog Hop!  This month our project is the My Creations Canvas Journal.  This product can be found on page 132 of the Current Idea Book, purchased exclusively through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant for only $8.95.

In this hop, you will see how our Crafty Canadian Consultants have decorated their Canvas Journals!  We hope you enjoy our blog hop today!

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 "Michelle S" in Nova Scotia at

If you came from "Michelle S" of "" then you are in the right place!

Here is my canvas journal:

I luv the simplicity of my design.  I wanted to be able to carry my journal around without anything falling off or getting destoyed, since I like to write alot.

Products I used to make my journal:

- Brocade Assortment (for the key)

I just made sure that I had enough paper to cover the front of the cover, gluing it down very well.  I used both adhesive tape and glue.  I inked around the chocolate card stock (which I cut - 3 3/4 by 3 3/4), in chocolate ink, giving it the finishing touch.  The houndstooth alphabet I inked using chocolate ink as well.  I added the chocolate gems, once I glued my alphabet down with the words I wanted to use.  The key was put on last - it is the part of the journal I like best.

I'm now finished so your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Krista of "".

Here is a complete list of the blog hop in case you get lost along the way:

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own version of My Creations Canvas Journal.  Join us again on November 5th when we showcase a series of 3 Christmas Cards made from one of exclusive lines of My Reflections Paper Packs.
