Seasonal Expressions 2 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Seasonal Expressions 2 New Product Blog Hop! This special hop is brought to you from same the group who bring you the SOTM Blog Hop. Today we are featuring items created with products from the new Seasonal Expressions 2; all projects were created by talented Close To My Heart Independent Consultants.

On this hop we have almost 20 CTMH Independent Consultants sharing creations featuring products in Seasonal Expressions 2. If you just happened upon my post, clicking the link to the next blog (typically found near the bottom of the page) will take you full circle.

If you are visiting from ***Miss. Carrie's Creations by Carrie Simonds*** then you are on the right track; a complete list of participants can be found at Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It.

For this hop I created a gift tag and gift box.

To create the tag I cut apart the "a little something..." stamp; I now have four pieces: "a little something phrase", "for", "a little" and "someone". I stamped "special" and "Mollie" one letter at a time using a technique from the Stamping ABCs on the CTMH Blog. I discovered the larger hearts on the Sweet Girl cut apart page fit the heart on the Fancy Tags Thin Cuts fairly well, but I encourage you to use some low tack tape to hold the die still while running it through your die cutting machine. I used a corner from the Sweet Girl—Cardmaking frame stamp to decorate the outside of the Favor Box.

If you missed the Favor Box assembly video when the die was first introduced, here is how to complete the box in just a few quick and simple steps.

I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Before you head to your next stop on the Seasonal Expressions 2 Blog Hop, ***Terry L Metzger's Creative Imaginations***, product details about my card are below.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Consultant website.

I love to hear what folks think about the items I create. If you have a few moments, please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card. Thank you for hopping with us!
