CTMH Spring 2010 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart new product Blog Hop!  There are 17 fabulous consultants from Close to My Heart celebrating the release of the Spring 2010 Idea Book by showing you some new artwork and projects featuring some of the fantastic new products available now!!
It is easy to do, just follow the links at the end of each post to go to the next stop on the hop!  Enjoy!

I have a few projects to share with you today.

The first is a layout I created using the new Caboodle paper pack!  Aren't the colours fun?  They just screamed 'SUMMER' to me - so I found some great sunny pics to put together my layout! The design is from the CTMH How-to Program Book Reflections and is titled "Sidebar-Original" (I rotated the sketch).   

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):
My second project is a 6x6 inch card.  I used the new Caboodle paper once again, but gave it a completely different look by pairing it with the Barn Red cardstock.  I also used my FAVOURITE new stamp set "State of Mind"!  The design is Kazan's Sketch #43 from the 2 Sketches 4 U Blog.

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart):

  1. I really like the scrapbook page, and the card is stunning! Love the State of Mind set, and it is stamped perfectly here! The little flowers just add a great touch! Thanks for inspiring!

  2. gorgeous projects! Love the colors in the card and the title is so fun. Makes me really ache for summer as I sit her with the heat cranked up and the tempature at -4 outside :)

  3. Both projects are amazing...I love how you made the same PP look so different!

  4. Love your projects Carla! You are so talented! *Ü*

  5. Boys of Summer - what a GREAT title! How fun!

    I never would have thought of adding Barn Red to Caboodle papers - it's an entirely different look, more grown up and masculine. And...the State of Mind stamp set - another MUST have on my list!

  6. Your designs help me to like Caboodle more than I did just seeing it in the Idea Book! tfs

  7. 2 great projects. I love how you showed the versatility of this set and warmed it up with the barn red. Very nice!

  8. YUM! here's a pp I have to have! Love how you made it look so very different. Your Boys of Summer is a fun layout. The card is very elegant and lovely! You go girlie!
