September/October 2020 Idea Book New Product Blog Hop

Every two months, Close To My Heart releases a special, seasonal Idea Book supplement to our core line, and I think the September/October edition is going to blow you away!  Hop along to see lots of new product and amazing projects.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Gina's blog.  From here, you'll visit Lauren's blog next.)
Don't you love the NEW Bloom with Grace collection?  I paired it with the Operation Smile Every Bit of Wonderful stamp set (which will be available all year and not exclusive to Sept.-Oct.).  I stamped the sentiment on the French Vanilla panel with NEW Desert Rose ink (which also matches the card stock base).  I stamped the flower in Desert Rose on Canary card stock and then fussy cut it out.  I also stamped the foliage in Fern.  I added gold glitter gems and a heart from the Bloom with Grace wooden cutouts.  This card will be heading to my daughter at UGA soon...  
My second card came together quickly using a Make It From Your Heart sketch.  I used the same materials as the first card plus added in gold shimmer trim.  I'm sending this one to a special teacher bestie who is such an inspiration and friend to me.  (I am finishing up week 4 of both face-to-face and simultaneous online teaching, with Fridays being online days for everyone, so I am especially grateful for my tribe right now!)

Thank you for visiting!  If you like my quick & easy cards, feel free to copy them.  Please leave a comment before hopping to Lauren's blog next!

  1. What great cards, Haley! That first one has so much dimension!

  2. I love the folded back edges on your first card- I always forget about this technique but it's super cute!

  3. I love that fold back card - often a technique I forget to use and it is so effective.

  4. Both cards are very pretty. The first one is my fav of the two.

  5. Both cards are great, but I particularly like the peek-a-boo effect on the first one. It feels like you get an extra little surprise!


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
