New Product Blog Hop – Using Zip Strips

Today I’ve got another entry in the New Product Blog Hop.  I’m on a roll!

Life is Sweet Layout by Wendy Kessler

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.



Lollydoodle Layout – A Giggle a Day

Lollydoodle Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Make It from Your Heart™ Vol. 2: Pattern 10, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Paper Fundamentals, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle My Stickease, Flamingo Dots, Washi Tape (I guess what I used is retired but you could substitute others) and cardstock (Juniper and Twilight).

I started this layout with the leftover B&T papers and embellishments from the Lollydoodle WOTG Kit and then added a bunch of the many new products like the Paper Fundamentals and Pink Glitter Paper!

Cherish 18-Month Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Dotty For You papers (retired special), CTMH White Daisy Cardstock, CTMH Scallop Border PunchCMTH 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.
