CTMH New Product Blog Hop – Spring 2010

Welcome to the Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop.  Throughout this hop you will find a variety of items all created using new products from the Close to My Heart 2010 Spring Idea Book.  You can click here to view the new Idea book or to shop online. 

This is part 2 from today’s earlier post where I showed you how to use the Caboodle Workshop on the Go guide to make 4 scrapbook pages and 12 cards.  The layouts and cards in this post were used with the papers that were left from the Caboodle paper pack!  To extend the paper I added 2 sheets of 12×12 vanilla cream cardstock for one of my layout bases and 2 sheets of 12×12 vanilla cream cardstock for my card bases. 

Here are my projects all created with the new Caboodle Paper Packet:

Notice on the Joy Rides layout I added “fun” to the B&T Background paper.  It was a great way to personalize the paper to fit my layout perfectly.  Also, the title is stamped with the Field Trip Alphabet on the back of the paper and then cut out.  To do this, place your acrylic stamp the wrong way on your block and stamp the flat side to your paper.  The letters will appear backwards when you stamp them but will be correct when you cut them out and flip them over. 

And something for those who do not do any girly pages – the Sweet Leaf Ribbon Rounds is a great accent to this paper.  Don’t like the printed floral ribbon that comes with it?  Simply flip it over and you’ve got a solid grosgrain ribbon!  I used the ribbon in this way on the 1 Cool Dude layout and the Buddies layout. 

These are standard A2-size cards:

These are 3×3 cards:
For the first 3×3 card I cut the oval Dimensional Element in half and attached.  To make the stamped frame on the third 3×3 Thank You card I used one of the bracket-like stamps from the Fringed Phrases stamp set and stamped it on each side.  

Products used are all CTMH: Caboodle Paper Packet, Imagine, Cherish – Portrait Collection (right) & Dreamy Look, Wishes – Simplicity, Field Trip Alphabet stamp set, Caboodle WOTG stamp set, Sweet Leaf Ribbon Rounds Collection, Caboodle WOTG stamp set, 3D foam tape, Solo 1 stamp set, Fringed Phrases stamp set, and Posterboard Alphabet stamp set.

You can purchase any of these items by contacting me directly, or ordering through my CTMH website.

One more thing I have to add – I can’t remember the last time I changed the refill in my ATG gun but I can tell you it was before I started all of this.  If you look at all I’ve created in this post and the Caboodle Workshop post you can see that it’s a lot and I still have a about 1/4 inch of adhesive left on the roll that is currently loaded.  I do not go light on the adhesive so this is a great test and it just amazed me so much when I realized it that I had to share!

This is 3 more towards my layout goal.  I am now at 12 of 210.

CTMH November SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to another Close to My Heart Blog Hop.  The blog hop is a loop so if you are starting here you can just continue through until you are back here again.  This month we are featuring the November Stamp of the Month: Around the Block.  It is a set of 26 stamps that work great for home and family pages.

Here’s what I came up with:

Now I know there are some of you who are going to love this stamp set but it just wasn’t for me.  I took a different approach and used the cloud and swirl stamps as the background for this card and used the shutters to make my own window instead of using the house.  The card layout is from Wishes.  The frame was cut with my Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge.  The owl in the window is from the Dream Big stamp set.

You will also notice from this picture that although my card is standard size, it opens to the side instead of flipping up.  Ink colors used are: Twilight, Sorbet, and Olive.  Ribbon is from Sorbet Collection and Designer Twilight.

I discovered the Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint when making this card.  I used a paint brush to apply the paint to the B&T Duo paper.  It gives it such a beautiful shimmery shine!  I also like using the Creative Basics when making cards.  It comes with bulk ribbon and paper to make sets of cards.  This combined with the Wishes card idea book makes for quick cards at a reasonable price and is this paper is perfect for some funand contemporary Christmas cards.   I have two pictures of the card to try and show you how much it shines.  Give it a try!

Products used are a CTMH: Creative Basics – Jingle (paper & ribbon), Wishes, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, White Daisy Brads, White Daisy Cardstock, Juniper Cardstock, Holiday Jingle Stamp Set, Tulip Ink, and Sparkles.
