New Product Blog Hop for Spring/Summer 2013 CTMH Idea Book

Thanks for stopping by my SCRAPI TRACI blog after checking out Jen Patrick's fabulous artwork during this CTMH Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book New Product Hop.  

This new Idea Book is filled with so many treasures! I am a huge CTMH addict and a very happy one with so much fun stuff to play with over the new few months.  Deciding what to create for this hop was so difficult and focusing on one item was just too hard.  I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with too because there are so many new items that I can't wait to play with like the new Kraft Container, the Clear Pillow Boxes, both Small and Large Paper Creations and the 6"x6" Canvas Display.  I could go on and on but I will just stop and show you the following, which are three different projects that I wanted to showcase, all listing the new products being used:

1). Later Sk84 One Page Snow Layout - I thought the splashes of white on the Later SK84 design was perfect for snow with the Slate, Pear and Lagoon cardstock and inks.  I sneaked in a little bit from the "Dotty" pack because I loved the lagoon polka dots with this paper and the NEW Washi Slate Polka-Dot Tape and the NEW Buttercup polka-dot Chantilly Textiles.  I was dying to use the NEW Spinners and Wheel of Life stamp set and I thought it was fun with this layout. I finished it up with the Canvas Letters, inked black, and the Black and Grey Assortment Sparkles. The stamp set I used is the Snowflakes stamp set that coordinates with the Cricut AP.

2). Chantilly Two 2-Page Layouts - I loved planning with Chantilly so much that I go carried away and came up with two layouts, both of which I will now use for my March layouts. Besides the NEW Chantilly paper, the layouts feature the NEW Chantilly Complements Dimensional Elements, NEW Chantilly Assortment, NEW Pink Glitter Gems, NEW Blush Small Floral Chantilly Textiles (see top right on 2nd layout for flower) and NEW Hollyhock Zipper Lace (also 2nd layouts).

3). For Always "Family" Bracket Frame - My frame features the NEW black polka-dots For Always Textile, NEW Black Shimmer Trim, NEW Girls Rock stamp set (flower top left and bottom right) and Black Glitter button from the NEW Black Assortment Buttons. The "Family" is stamped with the Trinity Alphabet and everything is cut using the Cricut AP Cartridge. For full details on this frame, click here. Inspired by fellow blog hop contributor Wendy Kessler and CTMH consultant Kathy Skipper.

Thank you for looking. I hope you like my artwork and take a moment to leave me a comment, which are so fun to see!
