New Product Blog Hop

 Welcome to our New Product Blog Hop! We will be featuring projects using new products from the 2014-2015 CTMH Annual Inspirations idea book. If you have come here from Michele Rowley's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants HERE.
We have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using new CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I'm calling my project "Snowhaven Meets Yuletide Carol".

First, I made the Snowhaven Cardmaking Workshop on the Go:
THEN, I changed it up using the Yuletide Carol papers & colors:

Here is a closer look at each card:

Ink & Cardstock: New England Ivy, Ruby
New Gold Shimmer Trim

Yep, as many of you know, I get started on my Christmas cards in August.  I am blessed to have a HUGE group of friends and family to send cards to every year, so I make about 125 or so.  This means Christmas starts very early for me! 
Now "Hop" on over to Katy Taylor's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! 

Find these and more new products at my Online Store HERE.

 This is a card holder I made by folding a 12 x 12 piece of b & t.  I left the zip strip on and folded it down to show on the inside of the folder. 

 I kept it simple by using a couple of black eyelets (retired) and ribbon (also, sadly, retired), and made pockets using super-strong Scor-Tape.
 And this card holder was made using the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  Simple Ruby, Black, and new Glacier cardstock was used and decorated with stamps from the workshop.
Here is a closer look at photos of each card from that workshop:

My favorite is the stamp with the line of Christmas trees.  I think this stamp set will get a good workout this year - so many options for creativity.  I love it when a workshop goes further than the project it was designed for.

Thanks for stopping by!
