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!

If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Maria Myers.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 (Pattern 4), Ariana Paper Packet, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle Complements, Lollydoodle Assortment, Sparkle Flourishes, White Daisy Cardstock, Cotton Candy Washi Tape (retired), Flamingo Dots, Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Corner Rounder, and 3D Foam Tape.
This layout is a great example of how you can mix and match all the paper packs and embellishments! Who would have thought that Ariana, Ivy Lane, and Lollydoodle could all be used together?!? What I really used were all the scraps left over after completing the Workshop on the Go Kits for each of these papers. I am very pleased with this layout of “scraps”! I cut the number with using Art Philosophy, layered it with Washi Tape, and trimmed the edges. I used this same technique for the polka dot border on the top. Sorry, I keep forgetting that the Cotton Candy Washi Tape is retired; I just really like it! For this layout you could substitute another Washi Tape. There are many that would coordinate.
Sheila Bennett is your next stop!

These little purses were so quick and easy to make. There wasn’t even much trial and error. By using CCR (Cricut Craft Room) I was able to see the size of the inside of the purse and know how big I should make it so that it fit. I was surprised at how perfectly it worked out!
