New Product Blog Hop: November and December CTMH Catalog

Have you already been drooling over perusing the brand new November/December Close To My Heart Idea Book?  It offers so many cute products just in time for your holiday crafting!  You're going to get lots of inspiration on this new product blog hop!  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Miss Carrie's blog.  From here, you'll visit Kristine's blog next.)
I did not go the traditional holiday route with my featured project.  The greens (Clover and NEW Candy Apple) of the new Holly Jolly collection were perfect with these amazing photos from our younger daughter's high school graduation photo shoot this spring.  I paired Pebble, black, and gold to match the photos.
To create my banners, I used the Artistry CTMH/Cricut collection, and then stamped my title in Black with the Simply Said stamp set from Story by Stacy (available in the 2019-20 Core Catalog).
The pretty black & white striped bows are from the Cedar & Pines collection, and they are perfectly tied and self-adhesive (Swoon!)!
Because the photo shoot turned out so well (Thank you, Alex Collins!), I am using a flip flap to add another photo (this smirk cracks me up) and will add journaling before adding this layout to her senior year album.
I used Holly Jolly dots, gold glitter gems, gold shimmer trim, and NEW gold stickles to accent this layout.
Because my photos of my layout don't do the actual photos justice, here's her graduation announcement photo.  (Thank you for letting me share my beautiful girl!)  Note that our holiday papers don't have to be used for a holiday project!

Thank you for hopping by!  Please leave a comment before you hop on over to Kristine's blog!
