March/April Catalog New Product Blog Hop

 Welcome to our March & April Catalog New Product Blog Hop! I hope you will hop along with us and check out all of the amazing artwork created using the special products in the March/April Catalog.  These products are available only until the end of April.

If you arrived here from Miss Carrie's Blog, then you are in the right spot.  The blog hop is a big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, Melinda's Blog has a complete list of all the participating consultants.  
 There are about 16 Close To My Heart Makers/Consultants sharing their creations using products from the new March/April catalog and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 

I kept it fairly simple today and created this layout, I am sure I will add some embellishments after I add my photos & story.

I combined the pattern paper from the Eat Play Love collection with some cardstock that matches this paper.  I used Fern, White Daisy, Glacier and Candy Apple cardstock (It is Cardstock Carnival right now and you can save up to 30% on our amazing 2-tone white core cardstock.).  I inked all the edges of the squares with Fern ink.  Can you see the texture on the Fern Cardstock?  Well I inked up my Floral Lace embossing folder and then ran my paper through my machine.  I love this look, it is so elegant.  I also misted the edges of my layout with the Turquoise Gloss Spray (currently out of stock but check back often ).

I cut the title out using the Simple Serif Uppercase thin cuts.  For the word family I stamped the co-ordinating Simple Serif Uppercase stamps on top with Archival Black ink.  For the word Fun I stamped a dotted background using the Daisy Meadows - Scrapbooking stamp set in Candy Apple ink.  On the strip of Glacier paper I stamped 3 words from the Food + Memories stamp set using Mink ink to say "Gather With Family"  I love that this set can be used for documenting other things than just food.

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I would love to hear what you think of it.

Now "Hop" on over to Aggie's Blog to see what she has created! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the products in this catalog are only available until the end of April!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can purchase these products!  If you are in Canada and don't have a consultant I would be happy to help you.

Blessings,  Kim


  1. What a fun layout- I always love a grid look!

  2. Adorable layout! I love how you used the letter dies.

  3. Very cute layout - great use of the letter thin cuts.

  4. Such a clean and simple layout, yet packs so much punch! As someone who almost only prints square photos, this would look so cute. Thank you for sharing. ~ Aggie - Arrows of Hope Designs ~

  5. This is going to show off your photos really well. Love it!

  6. Great layout! I love the seemingly different elements you pulled together, but they complement each other so well.

  7. Great layout! Love the grid look!

  8. I really like the gloss spray on your layout (I'm too scared to use it). :-)
