Here we go!

Close To My Heart has done it again!!
Our TWO,  NEW Idea Books are FILLED with BEAUTIFUL papers, embellishments & products!! It was hard to choose what items to create with, but I decided to use the rugged, fall-like "Hawthorn" collection. ;) 

Here we go!

The"Hawthorn" papers are a FAVORITE this time around! 

The ruggedness, the beautiful Autumn colors.....they are so "handsome!" :)  Take a peek at this beautiful collection....

This Layout design, came from our CTMH studio!  You'll find that I did make a few changes, but this layout is copied off the sample project shown on page 48 of the Sept/Oct mini catalog. 

I used 3 different stamp sets in this creation..and YES...they are all BRAND NEW stamp sets too!  

  FIRST----take a look at the smaller splatters.
Those splatters came from our NEW Julep colored Shimmer Brush!!

If ONLY you could see the fun shine & sparkle those droplets show off in person!! 
By laying your base page inside a box....and then tapping the shimmer brush on the edge of your finger ---while holding over blank get a droplet effect on the top part of the page!! 

NEXT ---- You can see all THREE stamp sets used, in this close up photo above!! 

The Sunflower Sympathy stamp set & Thin Cut bundle

Strokes of an Artist stamp set 

Hawthorn - Scrapbooking stamp set & Thin Cut bundle

  Take a look at the last stamp set above...Hawthorn Scrapbooking.  There are so many FUN stamps in this collection & I especially like the "plaid" stamp! 

Take a look at this photo above, and you'll notice I created my own plaid border! (top left & right of photo!) 
  I used Toffee ink & stamped it on the dark side of the Saffron Cardstock to create my own patterned paper. 

Of course...the LEAVES are pretty neat too ;) 
I used Espresso, Saffron, Paprika (NEW color!)  & Sangria (NEW color!)  inks to achieve these colors! 

In the background, I "tapped" my NEW Julep shimmer brush onto the background (if ONLY you could see the shimmer in the photo!!) 
----AND ----
I ALSO stamped in SAGE ink, the images from Strokes of an Artist.  I always LOVE these background stamps....the splatters here & there on a page...add just the right touch! 

Finally, let's take a look at our title.  I stamped the words in Espresso...and then pulled out my sponge to darken the edges of this title too!! 

I hope you enjoyed this layout, and were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Kathy's Blog to see her beautiful creation!
