New Product Blog Hop

Today we’re hopping again!  This blog hop is featuring the all new 2014 Annual Inspirations catalog from Close to My Heart.  There’s 250 new products and 192 pages of inspiration.  Let me know if you need a copy! 
As this is a blog hop, it’s a big chain of blogs that will take you in a full circle.  After you’ve hopped through everyone’s posts you’ll arrive back to where you started. If you’re already hopping, welcome!  You should have come from {Pam’s blog}.   If you get lost along the way, you can see the full list of bloggers {here.}  It will open in a new window so you can keep it for later. 
I’ve been knee deep in preparing for a swap with team sisters!  I’ve been working with the Brushed paper pack and so you’ll notice most of my talk on Facebook and my blog have been featuring this paper.  Today I’m going to step away from Brushed and show you the Cut Above Card Kits that I’ve fallen in love with! 
They really do turn out like the kit shows.  Here’s the first one I created. 
CTMH Christmas Card Kit from the Cut Above Collection 5x7 Card
This is a stock photo that shows everything in the kit.  Just add your stamp, ink and adhesive!  It’s as simple as that! 
CTMH Cut Above Christmas Card Kit with reindeer
It’s hard NOT to fall in love with them! 
  • Everything is pre-cut. 
  • There’s high quality accents!  Can you say GLITTER PAPER????
  • 5X7 card with matching envelope. 
  • No more cutting down a family 4x6 family snapshot to make it fit in a standard A2 card envelope!  Yes, I’m guilty of that, especially since the place that used to print 6 cent mini prints closed their local shop. 
  • Your choice of sentiments
  • Choose from 2 holiday ones & 2 modern everyday designs
  • The reindeer card will mail very easily.  It doesn’t have any chunky embellishments! 
For the holidays, you have 2 kits to choose from.

You’ll need to purchase the stamp set separately.  And that’s WONDERFUL!  Unlike our fabulous Workshop on the Go kits, this allows you to buy multiple sets of these cards for less than $15!  You’re not buying the same stamp set over and over! 
Here’s the stamp set.  It’s super cute and it only requires a 2x2 block. 
CTMH Merriest Christmas B1468 for the Cut Above Christmas Card Kit
I’m so excited about these cards I’m having a workshop on 8/29.  More info here because this is a blog hop.  I really do want you to see the other new products too! 
To get started with the Cut Above kits you need:
  • A Cut Above kit!  Or two or three…  We also have treat bags.
  • A stamp set.  There’s a holiday one and an everyday one.  And there’s 2 kits that go with each stamp set!
  • A 2x2 Block if you don’t already have one
  • An ink pad.  Ruby Exclusive Inks is recommended for the 2 holiday card kits. 
  • Adhesive.  We now carry stronger adhesives!  You’ll want a strong tape runner to adhere the card together.  If you’re adhering the reindeer to the glitter paper I’d suggest the mini glue dots because you’ll need a product that’s thick enough to stick to the glitter paper. 
That’s all for now!  Thanks for stopping by.
