Seasonal Expressions 2 New Product Hop

Join me for a cup of tea and a circle blog

to look at the Seasonal 2 New Products! 

       If you are hopping from  Miss.Carries'Creations you are in the right place! When you finish looking at my pics head over to Vickie ODell to see what she created from the new products. Of course if you want to start at the beginning of the circle go to MelindaEveritts and see all the consultants that are participating in this fun blog hop.

Beautiful Friendship is the first paper pack I used with the cute acrylix stamp set:Cardmaking
I made an easy pattern from the great How To Book: Make It From Your Heart Vol.4

The second card using the Beautiful Friendship paper was made with scraps and cut by hand. I colored the flowers and leaves with colored pencils and used a Bashful Shimmer Brush to go over the whole image. I loved the effect but it was much more labor intensive.
The next paper pack I choose to use with the same stamp set was Fresh Air.

Again I choose an easy pattern from the how to book, Make It From Your Heart Vol. 4.
I continued using the beautiful paper from Fresh AIr to make some pages from a recent Alaska adventure. I don't like reinventing the wheel so I chose a pattern from another How To book: Make It From YOur Heart Vol. 3 to design the layout.

Don't forget to head over to Vickie's blog now.
If you would like to know more about the  New Products I used and how I created my teapot mobile and cards and layouts I will add a small tutorial of pictures I took as I made these projects weekend next.
Meanwhile enjoy the New Product circle blog hop and when you get a chance come to my Versailles, Kentuky home and have a cuppa with me while we create with beautiful Close to My Heart products.
Always, Alayne
