Seasonal Expressions 2 Tour

On May 1, 2017 a new seasonal idea book was introduced by Close To My Heart - Seasonal Expressions 2.

Seasonal Expressions 2 can be viewed at my Consultant website or you can download a printable PDF (links open in a new tab). If you would like a list of items in SE2, the Product Index (in PDF format) may be helpful; I use mine for a wish list and as a way to track purchases. CTMH also produced a PDF Recipes which lists the products used (and Cricut shapes, if applicable) to create the samples found in the book. Based on Corporate policies and past seasonal idea books I believe most, if not all, of the products should be considered as available while supplies last.

Let's start our tour of Seasonal Expressions 2:

There are four new paper packs introduced in Seasonal Expressions 1. Each paper pack has a Workshops Your Way® Scrapbooking Kit. Download the WYW Scrapbooking instructions from my Consultant website (there is the link below the "Add To Cart" button), for instructions to create the layouts. In addition to the layouts, at the end of the guide there are directions for using the WYW "leftovers" and a few additional supplies (see the list under the WYW in the idea book), to create 6 to 12 cards (depending on the collection) using your scraps:

Little Dreamer
this collection starts on page 4
No Worries
this collection starts on page 14
Prickly Pear
this collection starts on page 24
this collection starts on page 34

Clicking on the link under the photos above take you to all of the CTMH products tagged with the paper collection name, including the stamps used to create samples in SE2 with the paper collection. Clicking on the paper photo will take you directly to the paper pack.

There are four new Workshops Your Way® cardmaking kits.

When you look at the WYW Cardmaking Kits on my Consultant website, be sure to download the Guide (you will find it under the "Add to Cart" button) with cutting and assembly tips. Also, under the photo of the kit contents you will see photos of the two different cards the kit makes. Just click on the image for a better view.

There are eight new Thin Cut bundles—four for Cardmaking and four for Scrapbooking. If you do not use a die cutting machine like the Cuttlebug or Sizzix Big Shot, the stamp sets are available individually. If you have a die cutting machine, or plan to purchase one, please purchase the bundle as the dies not are available for individual purchase.

The four Compliments that were introduced in Seasonal Expressions 1 are on pages 44 to 47 of Seasonal Expressions 2, but this time the samples show the Compliments used with the four new paper collections. I love how the Compliments coordinate with a variety of paper collections.

My Boy Complements (Z3306)
My Girl Complements (Z3308)
Springtime Complements (Z3307)
Snapshot Complements (Z3309)

We have two Cut Above scrapbooking kits that are a great introduction to scrapbooking because all you need to do is add adhesive and photos to complete the pages.

Cut Above® Layout Kit—Party Time (Z3330)
Cut Above® Layout Kit—Adventure (Z3331)

I hope you have enjoyed this tour of Seasonal Expressions 2. As always, the Shop Now button will take you to my Consultant website where you can see the other products that were introduced, read full products descriptions and place orders.
