New Idea Book Blog Hop!

Welcome to our Blog Hop!  We will be featuring products currently offered in our new Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book.  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 11 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using products from the new Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book and other great CTMH products on their blogs.  Hopping along is simple - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  Here we go!

This fun nugget box (named for the Hershey's Nuggets in the middle) features our beautiful new Sophia paper packet.  With it's girly pink and green theme, I think it's my favorite of the new book!  The "Thinking of you" stamp is from the new must-have set Salutation Seals.  The box contains four 3 x 3 cards with envelopes and three Hershey's Nuggets chocolates.  So cute!

This little cutie belongs to some friends of ours and the clipboard photo frame is a birthday gift for her mommy!  The beautiful grey toile background paper is from the new Bliss paper pack.  When I first saw this pack it screamed wedding, but after playing with it I can see many uses for it!

Now, "Hop" on over to Debi's blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting and other fun ideas!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to get these, and all the beautiful new products in the Spring/Summer 2011 Idea Book!
