New Product Blog Hop: Spring/Summer 2013

Welcome to the Spring/Summer 2013 New Product Blog Hop!

Have you checked it out yet? The brand new Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book is filled with amazing new products for all your papercrafting needs. I am simply in love with this book and all the goodies it features! We have over 30 incredibly talented consultant who are equally enamored with this issue and just can't wait to share some of their very first creation using all new products!

If you've arrived here from Wendy Kessler's blog, you are on the right track. If this is your first stop, following along is easy. Simply follow the links at the bottom of each blog post until you arrive right back here.

Nothing shouts spring nearly as much as the gorgeous new Chantilly My Reflections kit, my favorite of the Spring/Summer Idea Book. Chantilly features blooms and blossoms, as well as paisleys and birds in a fun, cheery color palette.

To create this 8" x 3 1/2" card, I paired the Chantilly papers with the new Perfect Fit-Birthday stamp set (B1417). A little ink distressing using Sweet Leaf ink makes the paper pop just a bit, and the fun Baker's Twine Hemp, found in the Wooden Accents Mini-Medley Collection ties it all together!

Here's another card featuring Chantilly and the Perfect Fit-Birthday stamp set. The Cotton Candy frame is cut on the Cricut using Close to My Heart's Artiste cartridge and stamped with the new Perfect Fit-Frames 2 stamp set (D1586)

Be sure to check out the Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book HERE or contact me (or your own consultant) to get your copy. You won't want to miss this one!

Time to hop along and see what the amazingly talented Alissa Chilton has to share with all of us - I know you won't be disappointed!
