CTMH Core Catalog New Product Blog Hop

Core Catalog New Products


Thanks for visiting our Core Catalog new product blog hop!   You'll get a chance to see many of the new products for the this year-long (September 2020 - August 2021) idea book today.  There are so many new and exciting paper packs, multi-media products, and as always, fun new thin cuts and stamp sets to explore and add to your paper crafting collection.

A blog hop is just one big loop of crafty, fun ideas for paper crafting as you visit each of the connected blogs.  If you are coming from the beautiful work on Becca's Blogyou are on the right path.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post to Stefani's blog, (and successive posts) to see which blog to visit next.

One of the new products in the Close To My Heart Core Catalog that I was sooooo excited to see was the Wood Grain Paper Pack (X8017).  Look at these wonderful patterns and textures.  And just think, if they aren't the right shade for your project, you can always ink them to match what you're doing.  

I have lots of plans for this paper pack.  I am sure more than one pack will be added to my paper stash.  Being primarily a scrapbooker, there are lots of layout designs whirling through my head especially to scrap my walks through the woods and other nature photos.  But another great option with these papers are more masculine looking layouts and cards.  Since I am in need of some masculine birthday cards, that's what I started with first.  

Leaves are stamped on wood grain paper.
Background paper is Toffee and is scored and sanded.
A little silver embellishing thread was added behind the leaves.

The best part about these cards is that they can be made
with scraps you have left over from other projects.

The sentiments on all these cards are from the October Stamp
of the month, With All My Love.

The cards I've made here, are very simple, but work well for masculine cards. 
I hope they might spur some thoughts for you as well.

After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to visit the new idea book here.  Be sure to scroll down on the catalog page to find the core products catalog.
