New Products Blog Hop - Annual Inspirations

Hello and welcome to CTMH's New Products Blog Hop. This week we are featuring our awesome new Annual Inspirations.

If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Melinda's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from MY CREATIONS WITH MICHELLE you are in the right place. Now on to my project: 

So there are quite a lot of new products in the Annual Inspirations. At a first glance you might feel underwhelmed but fear not! CTMH has a plan! There are are actually lots of possibilities with the new lines and this catalog is meant to be a basic reference book. All the paper in here can be used for year long themes and different varieties of occasions. The new Holiday Expressions that will go live September 1st will have your themed paper packs. :) 

Anyways I started playing a bit with our products and new colors. Before I got my new paper I made this page to showcase the new Adventure palette by using our watercolor paints and mixing to try and get the new colors.

Next I tried out the new Enchantment fundamentals and our new French stamps. Yes, We now carry some translation stamps! It's so exciting!

Here are a couple layouts I made using a wide mix of product to test out the beautiful new heart thin cuts! I absolutely LOVE these hearts! Notice that beautiful blue-green color? It's our color of the year, called Sea Glass. It is a stand alone color that doesn't fit into any palette but is beautiful on it's own!

Supply List:
*Sorry I am super busy today and will edit this later!!!

Next on our blog hop is Michele from EVERGREEN MEMORIES. Make sure to check out her amazing work featuring this same product.

  1. My you have been busy. Love what you've done to show the watercolors, and I love, love the thin cuts, and the layouts you created - beautiful work!

  2. What fabulous layouts. They are really great. The card is great, and I am too excited about the mutliple languages as my children attend French Immersion School.

  3. Wasn't sure what I would do with the bold stripe paper, but I like what you did with it on your card.

  4. You have been busy, and what gorgeous ideas you have created! I think my favorite would have to be the Love You double page spread.

  5. Wonderful projects! You've been busy!

  6. love how you used the fundamentals in your layout, I have a new grandson and his photos would look awesome on this layout :)
