Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop


The new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book has the most gorgeous, amazing new products and I am only going to give you a small sampling of it today.  Today, I am showing off the new Papers, new accessories, and new stamp sets that you can get your hands on right now!

If you have come here from Lori Brown's Blog you are on the right path. This month we have almost 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations from the new Seasonal Expressions Book. The hop is simple to follow - just click on the link provided in the post to move to the next blog!

First on the list is a 5"x7" birthday card for a friend whose birthday is in a couple of days.  Since I just got a new Cricut Explore, I wanted to use my it for my projects for this hop.  My first project uses the new Blossom Paper kit.  The first image is the card folded.

Next is the unfolded picture:

  
Papers:   Blossom Paper kit, Sunset, White Daisy Cardstocks
Stamps:  
Ink:   Black  Exclusive Ink
Embellishments:   Glacier Extra Thick Twine, z1752 Clear Sparkles
Other:  Circut CTMH Artfully Sent cartridge
 
So while I was on a roll cutting away with my new cricket, I decided that each of my grandkids would get $10 for Easter--they would already be overdosed on candy.  So I decided to make little bitty money holder containers.  These look a whole lot bigger than they really are.  The little bag made with Jackson paper is only 4" tall.
 
 
This one is made with Jackson papers using the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  The cardstock is Glacier.
 
 
These cute little purses are perfect size to hold a folded up bill.  I used Blossom papers with Lagoo  cardstock for one little purse and Smoothie for the other little purse.  The gems are Bling Gems Gold Assortment and these purses are cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. 
 
Stop back by this month and be sure to check out the stamp sets I will be displaying from the new Seasonal 2 catalog.
 
Now it is time to hop on over to Judy Faye Garner's blog and see what eye candy she is flashing your way!
