Spring - Summer Idea Book Blog Hop/Timberline Layout

Timberline Layout, pg. 1
Timberline Layout, pg. 2

Timberline Layout, both pages

Welcome to the Simply Inspired Blog Hop! We (16 other talented artists and I) are thrilled to share some of our ideas for the the new products debuting in the Spring/Summer Idea Book which debuts on February 1st. WARNING:  The artwork you see might make you NEED the new products! Don't say I didn't warn you!

Spring Summer 2014 Close To My Heart Catalog/Idea Book

If you have come here from the oh-so-creative Katy Taylor'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.

I chose to create a layout of my hubby and boys pheasant hunting in December using the new Timberline Collection and a few other marvelously masculine coordinating products. I love this paper and think it's great for so many things. Obviously camping, hunting, fishing, boating, and anything outdoors will work, but so will so many other things. I actually plan to use some of the wood print sheets from the Timberline paper pack for a shabby-chic sign in book I am doing for my son, Tannon's wedding next month. I'll share that when it's done as well.  That wood doesn't have to look rustic, it can look shabby-chic as well.  In fact, scroll back up and take a look at the cover of the new Idea Book. Can you see where some of that paper was used?  Think outside the box!

The new products I used are: the Timberline Paper Pack, the Timberline Complements Coordinating Adhesive Sheets, the Timberline Assortment, the Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment, Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon and the cool new Durables Triangle Studs.

A few of the new products I used
See that fun paper in the bottom of the photo collage above?  It is our new Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment and I have LOVED playing with it!  One side is a neutral and white geometric print and the other side is a tone on tone embossed print.  I took my slate pad and rubbed it on the tone on tone embossed side (you can see the paper I used in the top right photo in the collage above. It's the paper just under the bottom right corner of the stamp pad to create a cool effect.  Can you see where I used it on the layout?

Here are a few detail shots of the layout I created:

Now hop on over to the smart and talented Lynn Como's blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all of the Close To My Heart Consultants in the hop to get some great crafting ideas.  Contact me or shop directly from my website to get your products from this beautiful new catalog today.

Valentine Card with the January Stamp of the Month

In my humble opinion, this month's Stamp of the Month is "Sew" perfect for Valentines cards and gifts!    It's called "Cross-Stitch Wishes" and is a stinkin' cute set full of 13 images and sentiments perfect for "sew" many things. Not only do I think it's great for Valentines projects, but it's awesome for any sewer, cross-stitcher or quilter.  This set's retail value is $17.95 and you are more than welcome to purchase it for that, BUT you get it for only $5 when you spend $50! WOO HOO!  It's only available during January "sew" don't wait too long.

Also, be sure to check out this month's National Papercrafting Month special. The Cloud Nine kit, which has everything you need to make 10 gorgeous cards (including the papers, cards and envelopes, stamp set, washi tape, shimmer trim and triangle durables, as well as a full color brochure and cutting guide) is only $15 with each $35 you purchase. Yep, you read that correctly. Spend $70 and get 2, spend $105 and get 3, and so on!  You can see the details of this special here.

If you order on my website, you'll be prompted to add both the Stamp of the Month and the Cloud Nine kit as you check out, if you qualify.

The card you see pictured here today is a standard card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") that I created using "Cross-Stitch Wishes".  FYI: our Value Pack of 50 White Daisy Cards and Envelopes is a steal at $14.95.
