Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop

Welcome to our Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop!  We will be featuring products from the new Ideas Book.  If you have come here from Beth's Blog, 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 on Melinda’s Blog.

This month we have over 40 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this the new goodies and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 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 created a frame for my 10 year old niece using the new Blossom Paper Pack. I have included a video on the whole process below.

Here is the finished frame, complete with the shimmer trim.

I love the way the Fundamentals paper pack adds some extra dimension to the BFF circle, and the pink, blue and green work so well together.

Side on, you can see the dimensional 3D foam tape adds an extra touch and makes the embellishments pop.

The stamped butterflies on the frame edge are a subtle touch, but I think they work well with the overall theme. I had so much fun making the 3D flower as well, I will be cutting out more of these in different colours!

I have included full dimensions and Cricut cuts below if you are interested, otherwise you can now "Hop" on over to Chris' Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
