New Product Team Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog Hop featuring Close To My Heart Consultants from The Brae-ers Team! We hope you will take the time to hop through and leave comments on our posts...we love the feedback.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you get lost, you can find your way by going to Brae's blog for a full list of participants. If you came from Roz's blog you are in the right place.

This month, we are highlighting the brand new products from the Fall / Winter 2013 Idea Book. I am so excited about this catalogue with the fabulous paper packs, awesome embellishments, a must-have Cricut cartridge...well, you just have to look yourself!!

One of my grandsons enjoys the world of gaming so when I saw the ProPlayer paper pack, I was delighted! For  this layout I used a very simple sketch and only embellished a bit. Not usually one for only putting one picture on a layout, but for this one, I wanted Alex to be the focus. As my ProPlayer Assortment hasn't arrived, I improvised the badge buttons by creating my own. Other new items used: Midtown Cork Shapes (Z1863), Bronze Shimmer Trim (Z1849) and One-Way Borders stamp set (C1561).

Your next stop is Michelle Hughes' blog. Thanks for hopping along with us. We hope we have inspired you to create your own projects using the new product available now.

    1. Thank you. I saw a quick sketch, turned it the way the picture would fit and used it. Very easy but I'm happy with the way it turned out.

  5. Great layout Kim! I can't believe how big Alex is getting, time flies!!!
