CTMH 2014 Spring/summer Team Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends!

          Welcome to our February Team Braer Blog Hop that focuses on "New items" in our brand new idea book.   You will see creations from our team that may include stamp sets, patterned paper, inks, embellishments and more from the  Close To My Heart Spring/summer Idea book. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today,kindly contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we really love feedback from our blog viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you came from Arlene's blog then you are in the right place!
My focus was on the supper cute mini stamp sets! I used 3 of the new sets on page 119 of the new book. I coloured them with markers after embossing them for more emphasis. I also embossed the back ground paper with dots (you can find them on page 130) and Ivy lane paper on pg 25.
For this card I cut the cloud shape out from the cricut and embossed them with the dots, added shading with sky markers. And I used the new balloons and the happy birthday mini from the last book its number is m1033 in case you need that $2.95 its easy to have them all :)

I cut the shape for the perfect day banner out on the cricut too.. :)
Your next stop on the Team Braer Hop is on to Cindy's blog!

If you get lost along the way, you can head to  Brae's blog at, as she has the complete blog list.
 Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way.

Be sure to come back next month....we will be focusing on sunshine and warm breezes!! I cant wait :)
