Genuinely Jane Studios(GJS) & Linnie Blooms Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the  Genuinely Jane Studios(GJS) & Linnie Blooms Blog Hop! If you came from Julie then you are in the right place. If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, please head over to the Linnie Blooms BlogThe hop will start today and last until the 11:59 PM EST on Friday the 11th. 

If you aren't familiar with these two fantastic companies, then let me give you some background on them:  

Genuinely Jane Studios manufactures small and medium size wood mini-albums for mixed media, scrapbooking and altered art in many shapes and sizes. All of the albums are hand made right on site in their Central Missouri facility. In addition to their albums, they also carry other art supplies in their online store. Find them on Facebook at and their website at 
A love of creating has evolved into a studio where the owner, Linda Barutha, teaches mixed media art classes. Linnie Blooms is a local Mukwonago, Wisconsin  retail shop that offers craft supplies and art supplies. Fun and creative classes include mixed-media courses, monthly Pinterest classes, sewing classes for kids, crochet, and more. Linnie Blooms also manufacturers their own crafting supplies.  Linnie Blooms signature products are the Canvas Mixed Media Shapes & Blanks. These light weight canvas pieces are perfect for any of your crafting projects. Find them on Facebook at and their website at

Both the GJS and Linnie Blooms teams have teamed up to share with you the wonderful things you can create with their products. Be sure to check out both the GJS and Linnie Blooms websites for the full line of products! 

For my project today I used GJS's Square with round cutout book along with Linnie Blooms Blank square canvas's.  I punched holes in the canvas squares and added a large grommet.  I then proceeded to embellish my pages with some Victorian ephemera, paint, bling and whatever was in front of me on my craft table!!  I just love the way it came out and hope that you do to!!


And because we love our followers, each company has generously offered up a prize! Two lucky winners will be chosen at the end of the hop to receive the following:
