Close to my Heart new Frosted Premier!

Hello lovely blog land, have I got a project for you!  I recently joined a swap with other CTMH consultants featuring the new collections coming out in the new Autumn/Winter Close to my Heart Idea Book. I chose the beautiful Frosted line ~ I absolutely LOVE the soft blue and cream colors. And the patterns in this designer paper just sent me over the edge!  LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

 Our projects were to create a Double Page layout.  I decided to go to a tried and true layout that can be found in the Make it From your Heart Volume 1.  I'll tell you more about that later... We also needed to create an A2 size card, a 3 x 3 card and a 3D item.
  So up first is my 3D project ~ For each ornament, using the Cricut Artiste cartridge, I cut out the base ornament out of colonial white, then used some of the gorgeous snowflake paper from the collection for the top layer.  I glued four pieces together with the red and white twine in the middle then decorated it with Silver glitter glue.
 Next up is the 3 x 3 card.  Easy to put together using one of the stamps that come with the new Workshop on the Go Frosted Card Making Kit.  Included in the kit are 10 stamps!  TEN!! TEN different stamps! Here's what's included in the kit 
  • 2 - Frosted B $ T Duos Papers
  • 5 - Cardsock Sheets-15 - Colonial White Cards and Envelopes
  • 10 - Stamps
  • 10 yards of Champagne, Colonial White & Silvers Baker's Twine
  • 108!! Silver Glitter Gems
  • 1 - Instructional Brochure
That's a whole bunch of awesomeness for $24.95!  Below I will tell you how you can get in on this deal.

 On to the card...Isn't it beautiful?!  I love the softness of these colors.  Again, I used one of the stamp sets from the Workshop on the Go Frosted Card Making Kit. Do you see the twine?  Gorgeous!  This comes in the kit as well.  It is Champagne, Colonial White and Silver Baker's Twine.

Remember the first it is again.  I just wanted to show you how the layouts look side by side. LOOOVE!!
Above is the left side ready for a 6" x 8" and a 3" x 3" picture. The beautiful shape was cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge.
And, above, is the right side ready for two 3" x 3" and a 6" x 4" pictures.  I've also included a lift up journaling spot decorated with more of the pretty twine and a gorgeous Silver Glitter Gem.
 I hope you enjoyed today's post.  It was a long one for sure, but I just can't say enough about this paper.  It is so beautiful.  I think you really need to see it in person.
  So if you are ready to place an order :-)  bop on over to my shop page ~ you'll see a link to my most recent gathering.  I called it August 1, 2014 (don't know what I was thinking when I named it) Click on the JOIN button and you're off!
