Welcome to our New Product Blog Hop!  We have a large number of consultants sharing their creations using new products from the 2014 Annual Inspirations.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you have already started, you should be coming from BRAE MONTGOMERY’S BLOG.  If you get lost along the way, you can check the complete list here.

Halloween Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Scaredy Cat Paper Packet, Scaredy Cat Complements, Scaredy Cat AssortmentImagine (Proof Preview), Colonial White Cardstock, Sparkles Black Flourishes – Small, and Purple Shimmer Trim.

I love how this layout accommodates so many photos!  I will also be using Flip Flaps on the two 4×6 spots on the right page to add even more photos.  The Purple Shimmer Trim adds brightness to the layout (a great option instead of Black).

Here are some more projects I have made using new products:
Purple Owl Card

Trouble’s Brewing Card

Annual Inspirations Blog Hop (Trouble’s Brewing Card)

Trouble's Brewing Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Scaredy Cat Paper Packet, Scaredy Cat Complements, Sparkles Black Flourishes – Small, and Black Shimmer Trim.

I knew the general idea I wanted for this card but it took a little time to come together.  In then end, I am happy with it.  It reminds me of my nephew. :-)  Notice how I used the Black Shimmer Trim to create an embellishment in the corner!  You could cut it into different shapes and use multiples as well.
