Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to  Close To My Heart
Seasonal Expressions 1 
New Product 
Blog Hop

If you are arriving from Wendy's blog , you are on the right path.
To continue visiting each blog on the hop, just look for the bolded
link at the end of each blog entry along the way.  If you get lost
you can find a complete blog hop list here.

I chose to work with our beautiful new paper pack, Charlotte, paired with the new 
stamp set Springtime Wishes and our new CTMH Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts which 
will work with your Cuttlebug or other die-cutting machines.

First of all, I must thank fellow consultant, Peggy Pawlak, for the inspiration 
on this layout.  She shared a beautiful layout on the CTMH consultant bulletin board 
using a similar paper combination from this packet. 
The nice thing about this layout is that each page can be turned in 
varying directions and it still looks wonderful.   

I learned a lot about working with the new Thin Cuts both by playing
 with them and from the CTMH video about this great new product.  
You can see the Close To My Heart Thin Cuts video here.

Here are a few close-up shots of the flowers I stamped, colored with our 
ShinHan TouchTwin markers, and then cut with the Thin Cut dies.

Just a note for my regular scrapbook club gals: This is one of the layouts that we will be doing in February using the Charlotte paper pack.

Contact your Close To My Heart independent consultant to get your new Seasonal Expressions I idea book.  If you don't have a consultant, I would be happy to help you out. Just visit me at my website.

Now on you go to the next blog on the hop, Sheila Bennett  to see what amazing new products and ideas she has to offer.
