May/June New Product Blog Hop

 Welcome to our May & June 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 May/June Catalog. You can view the Catalog HERE.  These products are available only until the end of June.


 If you arrived here from Becca Whitham'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 17 Close To My Heart Makers/Consultants sharing their creations using products from the new May/June catalog and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 

Today, I am sharing a layout I created using the Hillside Cottage Scrapbooking Workshop Kit.  

I plan to add my journaling around the edges of the stacked squares on the right page. This photo is from almost 10 years ago, it is so nice to be getting this memories & stories documented. 

I changed it up a little in that switched the amount & size of the photos on the right page.  I also swapped out the sticker that was supposed to be under the photos on the right page with the sentiment, "So Blessed"  from the Hillside Cottage Cardmaking stamp & thin cut set.  I stamped it in Blue Belle ink and dovetailed it.  The black edges was done with the True Black marker.  


I am in love with these wooden/acrylic Hillside Cottage shapes, they are so fun to mix and match.  I also love that we carry Liquid pearls as they are such an nice accent, this is the Onyx Pearl.
LOL, the looks on their faces.  It was really bright and the sun was hurting their eyes.  That is Mount Rushmore in the distance, this was a lookout before we got there.

Always, remember that you can take a kit and change it up.  I am in the process of deciding how I want to change up the other layouts in this workshop to suit my stories & photos.  I think I am going to use parts of it to tell the story of my Dutch heritage and some of my memories of those things.  I am in the mulling through what I want to do and how I want to tell those stories.  As I write this more memories are popping into my head of visits to my grandparent's home.  They have both passed on now but I have many fond & special memories that I want to document & capture for my kids & grandkids.  That is why I love scrapbooking.  

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

Now "Hop" on over to Gina Brandstetter'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 June!  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
