Simply Inspired Close To My Heart New Product Showcase Blog Hop

Welcome to another Simply Inspired Blog Hop!

I get so excited about these Simply Inspired blog hops and am so honored to be included in such a talented group of artists!  I'm sure this hop will not disappoint! 

If you have come here from the beautiful and brilliant Beckie Lehman's blog  you are on the right path. This blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

This hop we are featuring brand new Close To My Heart products that will make their debut with the new Idea Book on August 1.  I'll talk about the new products I used on my projects as well as giving you their names and order numbers so that on August 1 you can refer back to this post and easily order the products you love from my website.

One of the fun new products that Close To My Heart is coming out with is a darling kraft colored (with a fun pattern) cupcake box.  It's perfect for cupcakes, or even cookies, or whatever your creative mind can come up with, when wanting to package them up really cute as a gift.  Along with the embellished cupcake box, I created a matching card.

Wondering how to get this awesome shaded look with the new Shin Han alcohol markers?  Never fear...I've created a little tutorial for you on how I did the maple leaf.

I hope you enjoyed my projects. Be sure to stop by Friday for the new Idea Book debut!
