New Close To My Heart Paper!

Hello Friends!

The new Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog just came out on April 1 and includes two new paper packs.  Wow, do I love them both!  The first is called Blossom and has beautiful blues and oranges in a floral theme.  The second is called Jackson and is a great blend of blues and browns, just perfect for more masculine projects.  I created a 12 x 12 layout from each new paper pack and displayed them in the Designed Décor Shadow Box from Close To My Heart.


For the Jackson layout, I used a picture in the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog as my inspiration.  I layered vertical strips of the patterned paper and zip strips in various widths on a piece of Colonial White cardstock to create a background.  I double matted the picture in coordinating cardstock, added elements from the Jackson Complements and Assortments, and added journaling with mini stickers from my sticker stash.


The Blossom layout was creating by again using strips of the patterned paper and zip strips in various widths, this time making a simple woven pattern which intersects under the picture.  Again I double matted the pictures, added elements from the Blossom Complements and sprinkled around a few of the new colored sequins from Seasonal Expressions 2 .

You can see all the new products in the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog here.

Be awesome today!  Laurie
