Close to My Heart Blog Hop
Thursday, August 27, 2009
Welcome to our Close to my Heart New Product Sneak Peak Blog Hop! Thirty fabulous Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peak of some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting September 1st.
If you have come here from Lori's blog, you are on the right path! If this is your first stop, you may want to go back to Erin's blog and start from the beginning. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one.
I love making mini albums, like this new My Creations All-Sorts Mini Album. The white chipboard pages can be stamped or inked, or you can cover them, as I did here. I used a new paper pack, Grace, with its beautiful autumn colors. The tree stamp is from the new set, Grown with Love. So many options to decorate the tree... I chose hearts, but there are leaves, flowers, circles, apples. So versatile! And check out the edges of the album pages. See how each one has a different edge, making it ever so slightly funky? Scallops and brackets and cut-outs, oh my!
My Scrap & Stamp classes will be making this adorable book in September (lucky them!). I've kept the book simple enough to put together quickly, but added a few fun embellishments, like this paper flower cut from the patterned paper, distressed and layered for texture. And talk about using up your supplies... notice the center of the flower? It's the punched out chipboard hole from one of the pages, inked and attached with liquid glass. Kinda like a brad, but not!
Now "Hop" on over to Jennifer's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs and My Acrylix Stamp Sets!
Remember, the Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book goes LIVE on September 1st!
