Holiday Expressions New Product Hop

It's NEW catalog time!!! Holiday Expressions went live on September 1st so of course we needed to have a new product blog hop! If you've come from Melinda Everitt's blog you're on the right path. Click the link in each post to hop to the next blog.

My layout started with an idea from consultant Clare Edmonds that she shared in August. I loved the idea of the diamonds along the top and bottom of the layouts. I made some adjustments to make it my alternating two different patterns of paper for the diamonds. The black cardstock is matting for photos and leaves a space you can use as a kind of bulletin board collage or trim and line them up with the black cardstock. The stamp set can be purchased alone or with coordinating Thin Cuts.  I can't wait to add photos of my grandkids after Halloween!

Close To My Heart products
  • Stamp Set: Hello Pumpkin Cardmaking + Thin Cuts
  • Paper Pack: Hello Pumpkin
  • Cardstock: Lagoon, Black, Nectarine
  • Exclusive Inks: Black, Nectarine
  • Grey Enamel Gems (white ones only)
If you need a consultant I'd be happy to help.
If you'd like to BE a consultant I can help with that, too!

Now it's time to hop over and see what Gina Brandstetter has made to inspire us. 
Have a great day!

Thanks for hopping by!
