Welcome to our Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop! Over 25 Fabulous Close to My Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peek of some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting February 1st!
If you have come from Casandra Bennett's Blog in are on the right path. I have to say I am so in love with the new papers and products in this catalog. It was hard to choose which one to use for the hop. I decided to go with Lucy..I mean who doesn't Love Lucy...sorry couldn't help myself;)
When each new catalog comes out I make new desk accessories for my scissors, glue, pens, etc that I use in my workshops. Here's is what I made using the new Lucy paper pack:
The items I used are:
X7149B Lucy Paper Pack
Z1732 Color-ready Seam Binding Ribbon
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
Z1336 Pearl Opaque Adhesive Gems
Z2153 Sweet Leaf Stamp Pad
Z2125 Grey Wool Stamp Pad
1 empty Green Giant corn can
1 empty Kirkland canned chicken can
I used the Color-ready Seam Binding and colored it with Sweet Leaf then folded it to make the leaves. The flowers were distressed with Grey Wool ink.
Now hop on over to Nicole Griggs's Blog see what amazing artwork she has created.
Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs and My Acrylix Stamp Sets!
Remember, the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book goes LIVE on February 1st!
