Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop. If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett. This month you will see us using the new ShinHan Touch Twin Markers!
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Juniper Cardstock, Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, Silver Shimmer Trim, ShinHan Markers (Light Orange, Barely Beige, Carmine), Marquee Enamel Shapes (retired), Sparkles Flourishes, and Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts (retired).
I used the ShinHan Markers in a number of different ways. I used the to color accents. This works great with a number of embellishments. For my layout I colored the Silver Shimmer Trim and the Marquee Enamel Shapes. I also used the ShinHan Markers to color and shade the Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts chipboard letters. To do this, I first added “stripes” of each color onto the letters, then I colored and blended with the lighter color from it’s color into the darker color to blend them together.
Tip: The ShinHan Markers work well to color a number of things, including the White Enamel Stars, Silver Shimmer Trim, Sparkles, Dimensional Elements, and more!
Now hop on over to Melissa Robinson!

Today I’ve got another entry in the New Product Blog Hop. I’m on a roll!
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Ariana Paper Packet (zip strips), Ivy Lane Paper Packet (zip strips), Glitter Shimmer Trim and Sequin Dot Assortment (from the Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop Kit), Ivy Lane Assortment, Ivy Lane Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set, Cashmere Cardstock, Inks (Smokey Plum and Olive), Scallop Border Punch, and Cricut Artiste Collection.
I was inspired by this sketch which is great for using zip strips! And the Ariana and Ivy Lane strips go well together. (Zip Strips are the added part of 12×12 B&T sheets, usually with product info on one side and CTMH utilizes these by making the opposite side decorative.) The Paper Fundamentals was the perfect foundation. Again, I used leftovers from the Workshop on the Go Kits.

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Dotty For You papers (retired special), CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, CTMH Scallop Border Punch, CMTH Stitch Guide, and Kaisercraft Rhinestones.
The second page here uses the Celebration Layout overlay (flipped upside down). The first page I designed myself with Photo Mat 1 from this same button. I used the Stitch Guide to place the rhinestones. The Cherish title is from page 80 of the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and the numbers are cut from the font on this same cartridge.
