Inspirations Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Inspirations Blog Hop! We will be featuring products currently offered in our January Inspirations Brochure. If you have come here from Rachel's Blog, you are on the right path! The Blog Hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating Consultants here.

We have 13 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's brochure and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go!

When I first saw this Wings paper, it was love at first sight!  Butterflies are my FAVORITE and this paper is GORGEOUS!  I decided to use it to make this banner for my sweet Esnart (to meet my sweet Esnart, click here).  Click any image for a larger view.

Those fun ribbon flowers were made with the awesome new pleated ribbon in the Wings Level 2 Assortment.  Here's a close-up:

The letters are sprayed with a mixture of Vineyard Berry re-inker, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint, and rubbing alcohol using the new Spray Pen that, for the month of January, is only available in the Wings Workshop on the Go.  I just had to use my Martha Stewart butterfly punch and added some Prisma Glitter for some sparkle.

Now "Hop" on over to Judy's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, these products are only available at a discount in the month of January!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get these products!
