Introducing Another Amazing CTMH Talent

I keep introducing you to some of the amazing Consultants that make up the sisterhood of Close To My Heart. Well, today I plan to introduce you to another talented sister--Lucy Marino. You can visit her blog here. Yesterday I gave you a sneak peak of our new Fall/Winter papers for 2009. Well, Lucy took it one step further.

Below you will see the matching flowers she crocheted with our floss. She used a size-7 hook with 6 strands of floss. We also found that if you used white, you could use reinker (about 4 drops) and alcohol (one capful) to color these little flowers if you only have white embroidery floss. Lucy did mention that if you have never crocheted, you might find this difficult to do. She did have some of her own patterns but did mention that she searched on the internet for free flower patterns to come up with her beautiful assortments!

Lucy's first post was with the new Twitterpated Paper Pack:

Below is the new Sweet Home Paper with another beautiful assortment for hand made crocheted matching flowers:

Lucy's Christmas flowers are the bomb when you see them with the new Jingle Papers!

And the last new papers and amazing flowers are the Grace Paper set!

We tried to talk Lucy into teaching us how to do this. But for those of you (like me) who may never get around to being able to create their own flowers may just have to settle for purchasing the white daisy Mini Medley Accents Collection and using reinkers and alcohol. Then again, maybe you could coax Lucy into creating you your own set! :-)

Here are a few links some of the consultants came up with for flower tutorials:
