01/12/10 CTMH New Product Blog Hop

Happy New Year!!

Welcome to our Close to My Heart New Product Blog Hop! 17 Fabulous
Close to My Heart Consultants are celebrating the recent release of the Spring 2010 Idea Book by showing you some of our creations with the wonderful new products from Close to my Heart!

Even it is cold outside, blog hopping is a warm wonderful experience and you will burn sooo many calories! You should have arrived from Helen's website and checked out her awesome project!

Now it is time to check out my "Totally Awesome" card as well. This card is a 4" Easel card and you can make it any size you wish. (I'll explain later)! The X7122 You Rock paper pack is my favorite in the Spring Idea Book.

I created this card with this paper pack and I know my husband and sons will love it!

X7122 You Rock paper pack
C1388 Rock Star
Z2140 Outdoor Denim
Z2130 Indian Corn Blue
Z2123 Goldrush
Z1277 Mini Medley Outdoor Denim Accents
Z679 Liquid Glass

Here are a few photo steps to help you create your own version:

Step #1 - Cut and score your cardstock

Step #2 - Cut the remaining B & T paper and cardstock

Step #3- Stamp designs onto the B & T paper.

Step #5 - Glue on front tag and wrap ribbon around the 4" square. Using Liquid Glass, glue button in the center of the bottom card (4" square = 2" center)

Now it is your turn to create your version of the Easel Card. To change sizes, just follow the simple formula i.e. 5 x 10" base, score at 2.5 and 5"; 5 " square card front - reduce each piece by 1/4" AND glue button in the center of the base i.e. 2.5" "Easy Peasy"!!

Now "Hop" on over to Jody's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and see the great new Paper Packs, My Acrylix Stamp Sets, and amazing new embellishments!

You can purchase any of these items by contacting me directly, or from my CTMH website .

LOVE your card! Thanks for the tutorial too. I can't wait to make one! Great job! *Ü*

I'm going to have to try these easel cards out. With 3 boys, I too love the You Rock papers! Great job!

P.S. For some reason, your background isn't showing up and the only way I could read the text was to highlight it with the mouse. Thought you'd like to know :-)

What a fun card. This paper pack seems so different for me from CTMH but I LOVE it! Great tutorial, I'll be making one of these for sure.

Awesome card! Thanks for the rockin' instructions too. I am really going to have to try to make one of these soon.
