So What's New with CTMH?

Welcome to our Spring/Summer New Product Blog Hop! We will be featuring many of the new products introduced by Close to My Heart in our Spring/ Summer Idea Book which went live on February 1, 2013. 

If you have came here from Kathleen's Blog at Life's Like a Bowl of Stamps, you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.
For this blog hop, we have approximately 36 Close to My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using new products from our Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book!  This is simple to do -- just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!
I decided to feature the new Later Sk8r paper pack and Perfect Fit - Birthday, a new stamp set to make a birthday card:

I just LOVE the colors in this paper pack!  Check out the papers:

Later Sk8r Paper (X7167B)

I used our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge to cut out the gears (and the circles on the front) for the front and inside of the card.

Circles:  page 48, B8, Card, < i > cut at 1 1/4" and 1 1/2"
Gear:  page 38, A8, Shift, Accent 3, < * > cut at 2", 3 1/2:
Gear:  page 39, A9, Shift, Accent 3, < ( ) > cut at 1 3/4", 2 1/4", and 3 3/4"

The new stamp set I used, Perfect Fit - Birthday, coordinates with the Artiste Cricut cartridge which means I don't have to hand cut my images.  LOVE THAT!
