New Products Feature - "Roxie"

Today's featured item is the Roxie paper pack by Close To My Heart. You can view the entire paper line at this link. It's a fun mixture of zebra stripes, plaids, flowers and flourishes.

The layout today comes from the Magic book using the "Magician's Choice" pattern on page 116.

(Be sure to click on the image to get a larger, more detailed view.) 

Using the new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, I added the big beautiful butterflies as accents to the layout. The ribbons are from the new Designer Ribbon Red Collection, and that sparkly bit of bling is one of our new Designer Brads Rhinestones. You get 12 in a pack, in two different sizes.

The title "girl time" is made with the new Irresistibles Eclectic Die-Cuts (white chipboard letters with a variety of resist designs on each). I rubbed Tulip ink over "girl" and black ink over "time."  Super easy!

This journaling tag is a sneak peak into the September Stamp of the Month called "Limited Edition." Notice the scalloped accent above the journaling tag? That's a new feature of the Close To My Heart papers. It's called a "zip strip" which is an added 1/2-inch strip on the top of the pattern papers in our packs. One side of the zip strip has the CTMH logo/copyright (no more CTMH logo printed right ON the live area of the paper) as well as the name of the paper pack and the coordinating colors in the pack. On the other side of this zip strip is a decorative trim you can use as a border accent on your layout or card. Genius!

This is a simple and fun card made from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. This was the make-n-take project at my Open House last weekend. The cuts from the cartridge are the card itself, the border and background inset, and the flower layers. Guests didn't have to cut a single thing! And preparation was super easy for me, as the consultant, because I can hit the Cut button and walk away. That cute little paper butterfly is from our new Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes. Various sizes of 68 butterflies with 4 different styles.

The center of the flower is from the new Bling Assortment which contains 18 pieces in all. Six buttons each in  two size plus six pretty stick pins. The silver sparkly accents on the flower are drops of our new Silver Glitz Glitter Gel. Much like Stickles, this gel sets up and dries quickly for an added sparkle accent.

Stay tuned tomorrow for another new product feature: Dreamin' Paper Pack. Thanks for stopping by!
