Holiday Expressions Blog Hop

Welcome to another fun 

Close To My Heart

Blog Hop 

Today we are sharing wonderful new products from our Holiday Expressions
Idea book.  Items in this catalog are available from September 1 through December 31st.  
So when you see something you like, be sure you order it before its gone.
If you have arrived here from Michele's blog, you are on the right path.
Traveling a blog hop is an easy thing to do.  After viewing the featured work, 
look near the end of the post to find a link for the next stop along the hop.

My work for this blog hop features the Nevermore Paper pack.  I just love the new Eggplant color that is included in this paper pack. This paper pack is wonderful for Halloween layouts, however since I will am using these layouts for my October - 6 Page Workshop and most of my ladies do not use Halloween layouts, I designed these for use with Fall pictures. 
For those who do want Halloween layouts, the basic layouts can be transformed by replacing the Artistry die cuts used here with either Halloween themed die cuts or the absolutely delightful Nevermore complements (shown below my layouts).

Die-cuts on this layout are from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge, p. 44. 
and shaded using our ShinHan  Touch Twin Markers

 The scroll work along the sides of these pages is from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge, p. 44.  Silver sequins were added for a little bling.  The cool thing about these sequins is that you can change them to any color you would like by coloring them with our ShinHan Touch Twin markers.

The wreath and leaves for these pages are from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge, p.44. The Artistry collection is available both as a physical cartridge and as a digital collection.

Here's a look at the Nevermore complement pack that could easily transform
 these pages into great Halloween layouts for your favorite trick or treaters. 

To get any of products highlighted in this post,  just contact your CTMH consultant, 
or visit my website to shop.

Next visit on this blog hop is to see Donna's work.
