A sneak peek of new goodies!!!

Hello, hello! Laura here! I thought I'd pop in and make a surprise appearance to share a little card I made yesterday. I got a FABULOUS box of BRAND NEW product from CTMH, and I wanted to share some fabulous things that will be available in a few short days!

First up - my new favorite thing. . . .gold dotted washi tape. It's a wider than normal washi tape - for this card I cut one strip in half. LOVE it. I think I'll be using this on EVERYTHING!

Also, Laughing Lola Picture My Life products. The "hi" card is a new photo pocket scrapbooking product from CTMH. Even if you aren't converting to this new style of scrapbooking, these products can be easily incorporated into traditional scrapbook layouts, as well as CARDS!

Last new product shown on this card is that cute little bird. He is an accessory with the new Skylark paper pack. Aquas and greens. . . .LOVE the colors in this collection!

I'll try not to be such a stranger around here and share some more goodies soon!!! Get ready for the new products available on February 1st!

Fabulous Flip Flaps

Space is Limited
If you have gobs of Christmas pictures to scrapbook, this is the layout for you!  Using the Close To My Heart Flip Flaps, you can easily showcase over 2 dozen photographs on this two page layout. 

The dimensional elements shown below the layout (above) are all extras!  Add them to your layouts or create more pages!  The left layout has 4 Flip Flaps for your 4X6 photographs.  You can place your Flip Flaps as I did (opening first left and then right) or layer them like the pages of a book – OR you can even use them in another location on the layout.  So many options and possibilities for this layout!
Your right layout has your 8X12 and 4X12 Flip Flaps which open out.  Hiding inside is a 3X3 Flip Flap and hiding underneath that Flip Flap is your 2X2!  Lots of places to add photos, journal, and scrap your memorabilia.

Your kit includes everything shown to create the pages including the following Flip Flaps:  (4+2 extra) 4X6, (1) 8X12 (1) 4X12 (1) 3X3 and (1) 2X2.  You will also have additional cardstock for creating additional projects. 
The supplies you will need to create the layouts – your favorite adhesive.  I also recommend you bring two page protectors that fit your album.  Let’s place the Flip Flaps on your pages to complete your project!  Cost of this project is $12.00

Sneak Peak ! Timberline Paper Pack & Weekend Crop Project

These three cards were created from the new (available Feb 1) Timberline Paper Pack.  I only used one sheet so you are seeing both sides of the patterned paper.

The card designs are from the Chantilly Card Kit (retired), and I used that stamp set, Colonial White & Chocolate Cardstock, Goldrush, Lagoon, and Twighlight inks.  The embellishments are Aqua Dots and a ribbon scrap.

Like the cards?  If you are coming to the Scraptique Weekend Crop the end of January, I will have a card class using this stamp set, the card designs, but different papers and colors.  You'll create 6 cards and have everything you need to create 15 more cards!  Your kit will include the stamp set, papers, cards & envelopes, and embellishments.  Cost $25.00.  6 spots available.  Look for Close To My Heart in the hotel Board Room.  Hope to see you then!
