Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop

Our Seasonal Expressions 1 went live on January first and it's filled with all kinds of wonderful products! This blog hop will give you an idea of what you will find. You can contact me for a copy or view it right now on my website!

If you've hopped over from Alyson Mayo's blog you're doing fine. Just click the link at the end of each post to make your way around the circle of hoppers. It's that easy!

It was love at first sight when I saw the Chelsea Gardens paper pack! The soft colors and pretty patterns are just the kind of thing that appeals to me most. So I got busy making a layout and it turned out as pretty as I hoped it would. Now to find some photos......LOL.

Tip 1: Use the stamp rolling technique to add a special look to your flowers and leaves. Stamp in a light ink color first then roll the edges of the stamp around on a darker ink color. For the flowers I stamped in Pebble then rolled in Glacier. The leaves were done in Pebble then Fern.

Tip 2: When you're adding photos to a layout later you can still overlap some of the embellishments when making the layouts. Leave the part that will overlap the photo free of adhesive and just glue down the rest of the image. Then you can slip the photo neatly in place.

All products are Close To My Heart:
  • Stamp Set: Chelsea Gardens Scrapbooking
  • Patterned Paper: Chelsea Gardens
  • Exclusive Inks: Glacier, Pebble, Charcoal, Fern
