New product sneak peek

Yep, it's that time again. Feb 1 is the day the new CTMH Idea Book goes live to customers. I am once again participating in 2nd Upline Susan's team swap. I normally do two rounds but I was having too much fun and this time I'm doing three! Debbie will reap the benefits since all of the cards I get back will go into the box for her Run/Walk in April.

The first set is made with Footloose. It was my top choice when I saw it in the book. So beachy, summery, FUN! I always buy the Workshop on The Go (WOTG) because it comes with a stamp set and at least one and usually two sets of embellishments and it's cheaper to buy the WOTG than to buy all of the components separately. Plus you get a booklet that gives you two layout options and options for cards as well. I used my wave cutter to cut the Lagoon blue piece along the left edge of the card then used Stardust Glitz Glitter Glue on it and the seahorse. I used the Bamboo cardstock and using every stamp in the stamp set, Random Stamped the cardstock then cut it up to use on my cards.

Second is Pemberley. This one was a close second as far as favorites go. Until I saw it in person! It quickly became number one. It is so my colors! Love the blues, yellows and soft greys. I used Pinky to cut out the cards. (LOVE that the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge has cards that the machine cuts out FOR you! This one also uses the new Wooden Shapes-Flowers which I used my markers to color and then used Glitz Glitter Glue and Liquid Glass on. We have new color ready seam binding too and I used t!m's method of swiping my ink on my mat then spritzing with water and coloring the seam binding that way. Love the look it gave. I used two different patterns of the B&T to use as the bases and I don't know which one I like better!

 And finally is Crusin'. This is gonna be a great seller for all those vacation pics. Corp was also very clever in using the map of Texas on one side of the papers since Convention will be in Dallas this year. The bottle caps add just that little extra something. And it's hard to tell in the pic, but I used Liquid Glass on the gas pump for some shine.

Ok I cannot believe these great cards. I am thinking I need all three paper packs.

These are all gorgeous papers Sue. I think, I like Pemberly the best, really gorgeous colours and patterns... but on the other hand, mmm... perhaps I like them all best!
