Parisian Influence...

As we Spring into March like a Lion I have to say like most other Midwesterner's I am ready for warmer temps and a glimpse of grass!

March also kicks off the next CTMH New Product Blog Hop.  So happy to pair up with my fellow CTMH Sisters and show you our AMAZING line of products in the new Spring/Summer 2014 Close To My Heart Idea Book & Catalog.


Today I am featuring My Reflections Balloon Ride Paper Packet (X7180B) which I think has an Old World Parisian feel.  I used the paper on our Kraft Ring Box (Z1868), antiqued the edges with our Exclusive Inks in Black (Z2105), added Paper Flowers using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686) which were quilled with our Quilling Tool (Z1795) and accented with clear Sparkles from our Black & Grey Assortment (Z1754).


I also wanted to let you preview our Base & Bling line of wearable crafts.  Love the assortment of accents from CTMH's Base & Bling Charms and Style Sheets. My favorite Charm of course is the Eiffel Tower since I love all things Paris!  I've paired it here with the Heart also from the Storyteller Charms (Z1959), Rhinestone (Z1978) and additional chain length.   Base & Bling Chains and Pendants are available in both Faux Antiqued Gold and Faux Antiqued Silver. You can view our complete line of Base & Bling on pages 80-83 of our new catalog, I'm sure you will find something that INSPIRES you. This creative outlet is just Perfect for Girl's Night Out!  Let me know what works with your schedule...I'd love to Show You How to add a little Bling to your style!

Hope these Parisians inspired creations bring you "Hints Of Happiness".  Paris in the Spring!  Yep, you guessed it....that is my DREAM!  Definitely in the top three of my bucket list :)

Enjoy, Create and Be Happy!
