CTMH New Product Blog Hop for Autumn/Winter 2009


Welcome to our Close to My Heart Autumn/Winter New Product Sneak Peak Blog Hop!

We have 30 fabulous Close to My Heart Consultants who are celebrating the much anticipated release of the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peak of some of the great products which will be available in the new Idea Book starting September 1st!

Our Blog Hop is so simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I had such a great time creating this festive card! I am so in love with the Ms. Holiday Cheer stamp set and the Jingle paper packet! Then, when I added the brand new Twinkle Brads which are covered with glitter, I was over the moon! The final touch I added was the Liquid Applique heated with the Craft Heater to make this lovely lady's hat and coat furry.


Card Recipe: "Wishes" How-To Cardmaking Program: Simple Expressions pattern
Paper: Jingle Level 2 Paper Packet
Cardstock: Tulip, Creme Brulee, and White Daisy
Inks: New England Ivy, Juniper, and Black
Markers
: Tulip, Vanilla Cream, New England Ivy, Creme Brulee, and Black
Tools: Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper Piercer, 3-D Foam Tape, Liquid Applique, Crafter Heater, and Mini Glue Dots

Now "Hop" on over to Julie's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and, most importantly, to get many sneak peeks at the beautiful new paper packs, embellishments, and My Acrylix Stamp Sets!

Remember, the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book goes LIVE on September 1st!
And, stop back here to my blog on September 1st for the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop too! We have 69 terrific Consultants participating in another fun SOTM Blog Hop. You will absolutely love the beautiful "Treasures" stamp set and all the artwork available for viewing.

Free Spirit Cards

I've been thinking about how I really like some of the paper packets that are retiring and pulling out some of my favorite projects I've created with them. For today, I'll be sharing two 6" x 6" cards I created with my Free Spirit Level 2 paper packet.





Let me know if you have any questions.

Meanwhile, I have a Tinkerin' Workshop to prepare for and I can't wait to scrapbook with friends all afternoon tomorrow!

Dear Dawn,

Well, we are finally seeing some warmer (& humid) weather here in northern Michigan. The girls and I are going to have to squeeze in a beach day before it turns cold all over again!

Here is my second update for August, as promised. Close to My Heart has so many exciting things heading your way.

For example, on Tuesday, August 18th, the new National Stamping Month special from Close to My Heart begins. I already have the beautiful new "Everyday Celebration" card kit in my hot little hands and let me tell you it's a real beauty!

You won't want to miss all of the great new paper, stamps, embellishments, and more you will find in Close to My Heart's new Autumn/Winter Idea Book! I am hosting a National Stamping Day Crop on Saturday, September 12th. Please contact me at 347-6301 if you would like to attend. There are still a few spaces available. This will be a nice chance to see the new goodies for fall too.

If you only have an hour to spare on Sept. 12th, you can stop by for a free make & take and still get that peek at what's in store in the new Idea Book (and you can get your own copy too). RSVP that you want to do the make & take so I have a project ready just for you.

I hope you, too, find time for at least one more beach day for your family in August!

Dawn

Memory Keeper Box Class Sneak Peek

As I mentioned a while back, I will be teaching classes at a Shop & Crop scrapbooking retreat in October.

The classes are now available for sign up and scrapper spaces are still available. Let me know if I can help you to register.

Here is a sample of one of the projects I will be teaching:



This fun Memory Keeper Box is a pretty place to store your photos and treasures. It will also fit the coordinating 9" x 9" accordion album project I will be teaching that same weekend. So, you can have a matching gift box for that special album gift too.

Close to My Heart's My Creations Cube Animal Cookies Style



I held a "Cool Cubes" workshop earlier this month. This is one of the cubes I created for that class. This sample features the Animal Cookies Level 2 paper packet and coordinating embellishments. Above, you can see the top of my cube.

The My Creations Cube comes unfolded and ready to alter. Once I figured out how I wanted to decorate and assemble my cube, I inked all edges of the cube with Desert Sand ink and my Foam Tool (to keep my fingers clean).

Next, I began tying the corners with Waxy Flax, alternating between the Sunflower and White. I was careful, however, not to tie down the lid. I wanted to decorate the inside of the lid. I plan to make four of these beauties, one for each of my children. I will store keepsakes from each of my babies inside the cube.

However, you could tie all sides and use the cube as a desk display and alternate which side you want to highlight at any given time. You could have each side be a different season or a different family member.

I have listed for you the supplies I used to create this particular cube.

Project Supplies:

Alterable Item: My Creations Cube
Paper: Animal Cookies Level 2 Paper Packet
Cardstock: Tulip, Dutch Blue, and White Daisy
Inks: Tulip , Desert Sand, Clover Meadow, and Dutch Blue
Tools: Micro-Tip Scissors, Edge Distresser, Foam Tool, and Glue Dots

Then, below, the sides are shown. The cutting guide was designed by a fellow CTMH consultant.






This last photo below shows you the inside lid of the cube that I decorated. I also added a button closure and with a loop made of Waxy Flax.



These cubes are such fun projects to make! I also made cubes using That's Amore Level 2 paper packet and with Stardust Level 2 paper packet.

Let me know if you would like to host your own "Cool Cubes" workshop for you and your friends.

CTMH's August Stamp of the Month, "It's Your Day" Alternate Card Creation


Whenever I am trying to create a card for a swap, I end up with at least one "alternate version." Above you will see just that. It uses slightly different color combinations for the stamping. I like to share those variations as they sometimes are the favorite choices for others.

You can see that, for this card, I did include edge distressing and inking. For example, after distressing the edges of the colorful B&T (Background & Texture paper), I inked the edges with the Dutch Blue ink pad by dragging the edges of my paper across the pad.

Again, the project supplies are similar to my post for the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop card from August 1st:

Project Supplies:
Stamp: D1352 It's Your Day, August Stamp of the Month
Paper: Animal Cookies Level 2 Paper Packet
Cardstock: Tulip, Clover Meadow, Black, and White Daisy
Inks: Tulip , Sunflower, Clover Meadow, and Dutch Blue
Embellishments: White Daisy Bigger Brads
Tools: "Originals" how-to book, Micro-Tip Scissors, Edge Distresser, Liquid Glass, and 3-D Foam Tape

I hope you have some fun creating your own projects with this month's featured stamp set!
