Summer 2010 CTMH New Product Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Close to my Heart New Product Blog Hop! Over 40 fabulous Close to my Heart Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the Summer 2010 Idea Book by giving you a Sneak Peak at some of the great products available in the new Idea Book starting May 1st!

If you have come here from Terrie’s blog, you are on the right path! You can also find a complete list of Blog Hop participants at the bottom of this post.

This is simple do to— just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go...

One of my favorite new Paper Packets is called Cherry-O! (Isn’t it sweet?) I have a whole bunch of projects to share with you tonight using the new Cherry-O papers along with some other fun new products!
(You can click on the photos to see them larger.)

This 6x6 card uses a couple of buttons from the new Tulip Mini-Medley embellishment pack.
I was inspired by a card that I saw on Taylor Van Bruggen’s blog a while back.

This is the inside of the card.
I love tea and thought it would be fun to make a card that holds two Black Cherry flavored tea bags.
This was also inspired by Taylor.

I couldn’t find any cherry tea bags that were individually wrapped so I ended up making little pockets to hold the tea bags out of the back side of the cherry patterned paper.
This is a fun 3-D card that can be flattened down to fit into an envelope.
This card uses two of my favorite new products—Clear Cards and Cherry-O Opaques!
These are so much fun. I know you will love them both!And last but not least is a layout that I made for my darling daughter. (Sorry the photos are a little washed out.)
Another fun new product coming out are the Irresistibles which are chipboard die-cuts with various resist patterns on them that magically appear when you ink them. There is also a sample of Irresistibles in the Miracle Promotion Kit!
Here is another example of the Cherry-O Opaques. I cut them before I adhered them to the layout so that it would look like one of the stems is behind the letter “C.”
See Supply List at end of post.
