CTMH New Product Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome. We have some wonderful and creative people showing off some of the newest products you will find in the CTMH Fall/Winter Idea Book, If you hopped here from Janice's blog, you're in the right place.

> The product I am highlighting is the newest how-to program called Magic. This layout was created using Performance on page 48.

Photobucket The left page of the layout.

Photobucket The right page of the layout.

Photobucket Close up of left flowers. I used Liquid Glass to seal the flowers and also to attach each flower to the page. I also traced the stamped image with Liquid Glass.

Photobucket The buttons were attached with memory book glue dots. All pieces were inked with Honey ink using a sponge. The bracket shaped pieces were cut using a template on the enclosed CD. The flowers were made with our 1 1/4" punch. I folded the circles into a cone shape and attached them with liquid glass.

Now, "Hop" on over to see what Carrie has created for you.
