Christmas Layouts using older CTMH Paper

I love the "Beary Christmas " paper but I did not order enough to do the workshop. Instead I used the cutting directions with older paper I had in my stash, What I love about Close To My Heart is that their paper coordinates with many of the older and newer pallets !

If you came from "Brae Montgomery's blog"  then you are in the right place! 

There are so many delightful new products and as a consultant I have had the pleasure of playing with a few different ones these past two weeks.
I love our new colour of the year, "Bashful" and so I created a card using our new bashful cardstock,bashful glitter,gold paper ,Rose embossing folder and our new "You are Here" Cricut cartridge. That's 5 new products all on one card.
Here it is .




Now the next three cards use a stamp set that was previously offered in the annual inspirations of 2016, however it is now accompanied with a thin cut ! Makes it easy to cut and stamp. I used our Shin Han Twin touch markers and another new alphabet embossing folder. We do not carry washi tape so I used some from another supplier.
