CTMH Swap Spoiler Alert: Jingle Level 2 paper pack

I have been swapping Close to My Heart artwork with a very talented group of fellow consultants for several months now. Every time a new Idea Book is released, we each take a new paper packet with new stamp sets including one wonderful consultant who takes care of the four new Stamp of the Month sets. We just finished up work on our latest round.

Here are the items I have created for my contribution to the mix:

This is another fun card I made using my current favorite stamp set, Ms. Holiday Cheer. I did a little paper piecing with her pants on this card. Then I added some "fur" to her hat with Liquid Applique. This sure puts me in the mood for some Christmas shopping!
Card Recipe: "Wishes" How-To Cardmaking Program: Simple Expressions pattern
Paper: Jingle Level 2 Paper Packet
Stamp set: D1374 Ms. Holiday Cheer

This card shown below is one of the cards included in the new Jingle Workshop I will be hosting on November 22nd. At that workshop we will make 4 layout pages and 6 cards, including this one. You can see that we will put the new On Target Dimensional Elements to maximum use by using our sponge daubers to add ink in the colors and intensity we want.
Card Recipe: "Cherish" How-To Cardmaking Program: Lucky 3 pattern

I really love the punch of color this little 6 x 6 page packs! The new Twinkle Brads add such a terrific touch to these fun trees too!

Our Reflections How-To Scrapbooking Program is so adaptable for so many things. I have used the patterns found in this book not only for standard 12 x 12 layouts, but also for 9 x 9 and 6 x 6 pages just by doing a wee bit of easy math. For a 9 x 9 layout, just multiply each dimension by 75%. Or, if you are wanting a 6 x 6 page, multiply by 50% instead. How easy is that?! Oh, and I have even adapted the patterns for cards too!

Also, you can see why I love this particular pattern in Reflections called Main Frame - 4 Square. It gives you such a nice balance of patterns from your paper. For a touch of sparkle, I added Liquid Glass and then a sprinkle of Prisma Glitter to the little star from our new Flurry Dimensional Elements chipboard accents.

Whew! So glad I got these fun pieces created and off in the mail. I had a lot of fun trying out so many of new stamps and embellishments with the fun paper packet! I hope you enjoyed looking as much as I enjoyed creating.
