Tomorrow marks the release of the BRAND NEW CTMH Summer Idea Book!! The book has so many awesome new products and 40 consultants (including me!) have joined forces to set up a blog hop for you to get a great view of these new products!!
So... if you're stopping here because you are on the hop- welcome to my blog!! If you're stopping by because you are a regular visitor- you can start at the beginning by scrolling to the bottom of this post and clicking the link to Erin's blog... I'm including the entire blog list in case any links don't work properly- or the consultants forgot to include the link to the next blog in the hop!
On to my artwork: I chose to highlight the Extreme Happiness stamp set with a couple other new items including 2 paper packs! (note that I've highlighted in red all the NEW products used!)
The first is a card using the new Bella paper pack- I LOVE the papers/ colors in this pack- they are so rich and beautiful!!
This hibiscus set is awesome! It includes a large flower, small flower, leaf, even a border stamp that is a row of hibiscus flowers. There's one sentiment stamp that is a definition of Paradise: Paradise (par-uh-dahys. -dahyz) 1. a place of extreme beauty, delight, or happiness.
I stamped the image seperately, cut it out and adhered it so that I could offset it off the square.
Supplies: Extreme Happiness Stamp set, Bella Level 2 paper pack, white daisy cardstock, white hemp, Pansy Purple and Sunflower Stamp Pad
The second project is another card. It uses a design from the new Wishes Card Design book called "Delightful Dots". The book is not yet orderable as it hasn't arrived from the publisher quite yet- but soon!! I followed a card in the Summer Idea Book that says it used that design. I even used some of the same papers since it was so cute!
Supplies: Extreme Happiness Stamp Set, Desert Sand Cardstock, White Daisy Textured Cardstock, Moon Doggie Level 2 paper pack and Stardust Level 2 (the smallest circle), natural hemp, pewter brads, Cranberry, Desert Sand and Sunflower stamp pads, edge distressor, piercing tool, Desert Sand marker.
It's hard to tell in the photo but I edge distressed the circles. I faux stitched the blue patterned paper (from Moon Doggie level 2) by using my piercing tool to poke the holes along the edge and "connecting the dots" with my Desert Sand marker.
and Finally- A scrapbook page!! I'll admit this left page was a total idea rip-off from Close To My Heart. This layout was on the cover of the consultant newsletter we received with the new Idea Book and it was PERFECT for our photos of our road trip along Lake Michigan last year!! I did make a couple minor changes- I used a vertical photo vs their horizontal which means I also changed the direction of the wording- and their layout had a cute net affect that they designed out of hemp.. well- I could NOT figure that one out so I left it off and it looks fine without it- my vertical photo fills more space along the bottom anyway so it really wasn't necessary.
Supplies: Extreme Happiness Stamp Set, Post Card- Travel Series Stamp Set, Rustic Alphabet Stamp SEt, Color Ready Bold Alphabet Stickers, Moon Doggie Level 2 Paper Pack, white hemp, pewter brads, Desert Sand, Sunflower, Cranberry and Pansy Purple Stamp Pads, White Daisy Cardstock to stamp the "Paradise", postcard, and flowers on, Desert Sand marker for journaling.
Well- I hope you've enjoyed your stop at my blog!! I've starred the next blog on the list below- or start at the beginning if this was your first stop!
