As is the tradition, it is New Product Blog Hop time. There are over 50 Consultants showcasing their talent and highlighting new products in the Close To My Heart Idea Book that is set to be officially released on September 1st. If you arrived here from Jessica's Blog, you are on the right track. Without further ado, here are my projects....
Magnifique is one of the new Paper Packets. It features several of the new colors including Pacifica Lagoon and Sky. When I studied the paper, an Inspiration Book came to mind. CTMH has so many wonderful My Acrylix Stamps that include beautiful sentiments that I thought I would make a collection of them for all to glean encouragement and motivation. The book is completed on as a 6 x 6 Chipboard Album....
I used many products to complete the book. Here is a list of the new products that are featured: Magnifique Paper Packet, Pacifica, Lagoon and Sky Card Stock and Ink, Cotton Candy Ink, Lagoon Brads and Ribbon, Circle of Love, Unity and The Present My Acrylix Stamp Sets.
What release of a Fall/Winter Idea Book would be complete without a Christmas Card? I have to say that there have been many CTMH Paper Packets, but I am really beginning to think that Mistletoe is my favorite!
If you look closely, you will see that the card is an A2 size card folded slightly off center. That's a trick I learned from my good friend from across the pond. :o) The images were stamped with the set included in the Mistletoe Workshop on the Go. I Love Them! This is a set that is only available in the WTOG kit. The pattern paper is, of course, Mistletoe and the green ornament is a new dimensional element from the Ornaments set.
Last but not least is a card made using Hooligans (the Halloween paper) and a stamp set called Fright Night. To make the "fall" night sky, I sponged Gypsy (another new color and Outdoor Denim on Colonial White card stock. The fence was heat embossed in black with Prisma Glitter mixed in with the powder.
One of the reasons I like the Fright Night Stamp Set is the black cat image that I have stamped on the fence. As you can see, I am partial to cats. As I was trying to take the picture of the card, Bombay, my year old kitty insisted on helping. I don't think she is quite as scary as the stamped cat, but that is a annoyed look on her face. What do you think?
It's time to hop on over to Haley's Blog. Thanks for hopping along. For Now, Happy Crafting!
