Have you seen the new 2013 Close to My Heart Spring/Summer Catalog?
I am really loving the papers, embellishments, and artwork in the new catalog. We have a group of 35 Close to My Heart Consultants who have worked hard to show you their artwork made with products from our new catalog.
Our blog hop is a circular hop. You will see artwork at each blog and then be directed to the next blog with a link to that blog. Just click on that link! Hope you enjoy it and get some ideas of what you can do with our new line of papers, embellishments, inks and stamp sets.
This month I am the next stop after Mary Eisen's Blog. Welcome to my blog and I am glad that you are here!
Life is hopping in the Everitt household and I have not had much time to craft, but I got my mojo on with Valentine's Day and two grandchildren now living in my house and needing Valentine Day's cards for their class. I follow tons of other artist's blogs and found some incredibly cute Valentine Lollipop Holders that I was aching to make. I thought I have pinned them to my Pinterest Board, but when I went to look at them, found that I had not. So I googled Valentine Lollipop Holders and this is what I came up with.
I have used a variety of our new papers. The holder on the left is from our new Claire Paper Pack (X7166B) while the one on the right is from our new For Always Paper Pack (X7165B).
These two holders are both made with the Chantilly Paper Pack (X7163B). Aren't the springlike colors gorgeous?
And the lollipop holder on the left is showcasing the Tommy Paper Pack (X7169B). Can you tell I am loving the For Always Paper Pack? It goes with almost any coordinating color as evidenced by the Ruby Red Cardstock and heart.
Look at the cute nautical patterned paper from Tommy on the left!
Here are the paper cutting instructions for the Lollipop Holders:
Cardstock - 2 1/4" x 6 1/2", score at 2 1/2" and 4 "
Patterned Paper - 2 1/4" x 2"

Here is a terrific video on how to make these holders. The video will show you how to assemble these holders.
