CTMH 2014-2015 Annual Inspirations SNEAK PEEK # 4 - New Color Palette

5 new and exciting colors coming in the new 2014-2015 Annual Inspirations Idea Book from Close To My Heart!  






Close To My Heart Jubilee

The vibrant colors of the Jubilee paper collection from Close To My Heart inspired me this month.  It made me think happy thoughts of summer, friendship and celebrations!  The featured shades of Cranberry, Honey and Indian Corn Blue are just so joyful!

My first project was the fun to make as well as to give, pop-up card.  This card folds absolutely flat as a pancake and fits in a 6" x 6" envelope.  Upon opening, it stands right up and shows off it's contents that include greetings and colorful dye-cuts .  Super cute!  I followed the instructions at Split Coast Stampers and modified it using items cut from the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge.

I wanted to share this paper pack with my Scrapbook, Stamp and Socialize club, so I designed a cute project to do as a "Create & Take" for a recent crop.  Again, using the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge I cut the bag, rosette and sentiment tag out.  The "Oh Happy Day" sentiment was included in one of the matching stamp sets that came with the cartridge bundle.  I topped it with a piece of Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon as a finishing touch.

Last, but not least, I used the Jubilee paper to make this adorable Pennant Frame.  I've featured the how to video on an earlier post.  It is very easy as the overlay of the frame can be cut from the CTMH Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  I made mine as a gift for a wonderful co-worker named Millie.  Hence the large "M" monogram in the lower left and her name spelled out on the banner in the top right corner.
