Autumn/Winter Idea Book Release Blog Hop















Hello everyone, it is that time of year again already, time to hop around some very talented CTMH consultants blogs and get some great peeks at brand new product that will be available September 1st. So get your pen and paper ready and start making out your wishlist today! If you came here by way of Lori Scots blog you are on the right path, but if you are just stopping in here at my blog you will want to go Erin Herrings blog to start at the begginning or if you get lost along the way you can find a full list of participants there as well. Now on to the fun stuff, I made my 1st ever banner, they seem to be all the rage right now and I wanted to hop on that bandwagon! I used my George and Basic Shapes Cricut cart to cut out the triangles, and the Accent Essentials cart to cut out the scallops on the top of the banner! The lovely paper I used is called "Misletoe" item #7130B, I also used Dimensional Elements Monograms to spell out JOY. I embellished with the new Misletoe Level 2 Assortment item #Z1330(Poinsettas &Snowflake brads) White croched flowers are from the White Daisy Mini-Medley collection- item #Z1136 available only while supplies last and one of my very favorite new embellishments Mocha Opaques(pearls) item#Z1333. The bird(Felicity ss:no longer available) was stamped in cranberry ink on Desert Sand cardstock and the branches were punched out of Garden Green cardstock with a MS punch. I also used the Accent Essentials Cricut Cart to cut out 2 of the snowflakes and embellished them with red sparkles- item #Z1326 and I used an MS punch for the sm. snowflake . I stiched around all the triangles with my sewing machine and punched holes in each corner and tied with natural hemp- item#z280. The felt tree is from Heartfelt Wonder die cuts item # Z1210. I hope you enjoy your peek at all the new goodies remember they will all be available to order September 1st, now hop on over to Cindy Leeks blog and see what fabulousness she has in store for you!
