Welcome to the Seasonal Expressions One New Product Blog Hop where we will be featuring a multitude of Close to My Heart products from our ♥INCREDIBLE♥ Seasonal Expressions catalog. If you have come here from Gina Brandstetter’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog. This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of projects you can make from the New Seasonal Expressions. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.
Who knew that it would be so difficult to make a decision on what to create for this Blog Hop. There are SO MANY unbelievably wonderful items to choose from.😍 I decided that it would be best to focus on the featured paper pack of the month -the adorable Something Fierce collection – and tell you about some of the new products I used to create this precious Cute-a-Saurus Card.
♥NEW Larger Complements
If you have been a consumer (or collector) of Close to My Heart products for a while, you may remember that our complements were once 6″ x 12″ which allowed for larger stickers, die cuts, and borders. Close to My Heart has brought back the large complements and I am relishing these seasonal designs – especially the sweet stickers I used on this card. How cute are those stars, ♥hearts, and borders?!
♥NEW Cut-Apart Pages
This past year, Close to My Heart added Picture My Life pages to their paper packs, and, while these were super cute, many people didn’t use them, so the decision was made to add Cut-Apart-Pages instead. I personally think that it is a wonderful idea and, as you can see on my card, gives you even more images to create with.
In each paper pack you will receive TWO of these new Cut-Apart-Pages with a patterned design on the back. This gives you a choice to use the patterned paper, the images, or both when creating. For those of you who did use the Picture My Life cards, don’t panic. We now have a set of cards to match each of our paper collections that you can purchase separately for your pocket albums.
There are so many more products I used on this card – some new and some carried over – that you will find in the New Seasonal Expressions. If you have not had a chance to see the New Catalog, you are missing out. The products in our Seasonal Expressions are mind-blowing and in-line with all of the current trends. (yep, dinosaurs are a trend right now) If you would like to see the full catalog, you can visit the “Products” tab of your consultant’s website or view it online here.
