CTMH Spring/Summer 2011 Blog Hop!

It's that time again- Close to my Heart is releasing a new Idea Book and a group of fabulous consultants are here to give you a sneak peak of some of the fabulous new products! Be sure to check out all the blogs at the bottom of this post!

I know when most people first see the paper packet, Bliss, many are going to immediately think weddings. But for me, it is all about BABY now a days, and I knew this paper would be perfect for Aubrey's first pictures. Pair it with the Bohemian Alphabet, and WOW. since the paper is so neutral, you can add any accent color to match your photos- for me, it was Grey Wool and Baby Pink:

Layout: Reflections- Side Bar Focus


Layout: Reflections- Main Frame
Paper: Bliss, Grey Wool and Baby Pink Cardstock
Stamps: Bohemian Alphabet, Chocolate Alphabet Small
Embellishments: Bliss Stickease, Opaques (Licorice, Pearl), Dimensional Elements- Irresistibles Villa, liquid glass, glitz glitter gel, sponge dabbers, colonial white ribbon.

As with most of my projects, this did not turn out as I had originally planned- originally these were going to be companion layouts ("Perfect little fingers, precious tiny toes, bright shining eyes, cute button nose"), but as I worked on the second page, the text blocks I made just did not fit. so back to the drawing board for a different page, but overall I love the way these turned out!
I liked that I could use the flower and vine in the alphabet set to accent the pink cardstock, too. The new irresistable chipboard is also fun to work with and customize with ink.

Now don't stop here! Have fun browsing all the other blogs below. And if you want to share your artwork, just click on the link below to your post. Please be sure to link back here, too!

Happy creating everyone!
