If you have arrived from my team leader, Joyce's blog you are right on track.

In case you HAVEN'T heard, you'll want to check with your Close To My Heart Consultant ...because the NEWEST release of our Holiday Expression  Idea Book was released on September 1st!!  

It's BEAUTIFUL, & has loads of NEW PRODUCTS! :) :) If you click on the photo of the Idea Book, you can view the online version of this fabulous book! :) 

Today I wanted to show you something "NEW" from the Holiday book, so let's take a look at one of the Cardmaking Kits that are included in this new book.   

Here are the 2 card designs you can create with the Happy Day WYW Cardmaking beautiful! 

I ADORE these cards kits, and the BEST thing about these kits....they INCLUDE an Exclusive Stamp set!!  

Here is a picture of the entire kit...

This kit creates 12 cards/envelopes and is ONLY $26.95 
(and this includes a stamp set you will use for other projects!)

Here is a list of the items included in the kit....
Kit contents:
1 – exclusive workshop stamp set (B-size)
2 – Falling for You sheets
4 — cardstock sheets (2 Espresso, 1 Saffron, 1 White Daisy)
1 – white & gold ribbon (Z3189)
12 – white card bases and envelopes

We also have a set of "additional items" used in the card designs.  Most often, these may be items you already have on hand.  In this case, we used our watercolor paints to color in the stamped flower images on these cards.

Additional supplies needed:
Archival Black Exclusive Ink™ Stamp Pad (Z3271)
Watercolor Paints (Z3132)
Waterbrush—Medium Round (Z3225)
Leaves Embossing Folder (Z4031)
Thin Cuts—Basic Circles (Z3318)
Thin 3-D Foam Tape (Z2060)

Did you take notice of the NEW embossing folder above??  In the Holiday Expressions mini --book we have the BEAUTIFUL Leaves Embossing Folder!!  Lovely for this time of year!!

I don't consider myself a very good watercolor painter - but I had so much fun & I was happy that my painting didn't turn out too bad on my cards! :)   

The beautiful White & Gold Ribbon is INCLUDED in the cardmaking kit!! AND...I had another thought after I made these....I think GOLD shimmer trim would add a FUN touch to these cards too!!

  That's all for today....thanks for stopping by, and I hope you were inspired to go CREATE something on your own! :) 


Now it’s time to Hop on over to my friendBetty's  blog and see what beautiful, crafty item she has to share with us!

Happy Hopping and we’ll see you on the 9th next month, when the Joyful Stars team members will be sharing more artwork using Close To My Heart products!    

Blessings to you for BEAUTIFUL day!!!
