CTMH Core Catalog Blog Hop


Hi There!  I am following {Wendy Kessler's blog}   We have 14 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in our 21-22 CTMH Core Catalog Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

It's the time of the year that I love - Close to My Heart has released not just one catalog.  It has released two catalogs.  Along with the 2 month, September/October Catalog, the annual 21-22 Core Catalog was released with all of the products that will be around for a full year.  In this blog hop we are featuring products from this Core Catalog.

I am so in love with the new products.  We have a bunch of thin cuts that will make crafting so easy!  I decided to use the Purse Card Thin Cuts for my project.

Look at all of the pieces that comes with that thin cut!!  Close to My Heart has thought of everything!!  Now let me show you what I made.

I cut the main part of the purse out of the Love Story Paper Packet.  

I didn't use the stickers in this project but will in an upcoming piece of artwork.  These papers pair well with any color and since I just cannot get enough of our new Color of the Year, Wild Berry, I thought that color would just pop with the Black and White of this collection.

The other products used in this project are Wild Berry Cardstock, Wild Berry Glitter Paper, Gold Foil Paper for the buckle, Gold Embellishing Thread to attach the little tag, one Gold Glitter GemBlack Ink, and the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from the Embroidered Card Front Stamp Set.

Let me show you the inside of the card:

I almost forgot to tell you that I used our new Gift Card Tabs Thin Cuts to easily make the notches that hold the gift card inside the purse.  Plus I added a spot on the back of the purse to write a short note and sign the card.

That's it for my cute little purse.  It was SO easy and quick to make.  I hope you like it!.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Brenda Lapp} and see what she has  made with products from our Core Catalog.

You can purchase this stamp set as well as any of the supplies listed above on my website.
