I hope you have all had the opportunity to browse and drool over the CTMH Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book. I must admit this Spring/Summer Idea Book has won me over. I love the variety of the paper packets, the fresh fun colours and patterns and the wonderful embellishments that co-ordinate with each new paper packet. Not to mention the new My Acrylix stamp sets. I'm in love with it all - especially the new lower prices!!
Maybe it's because I'm dreaming of summer, or that I'm headed for the sunny shores of Varadero, Cuba, or that song .. you know you're singing it - Footloose is one of my favourite paper packets from this Idea Book.
The simplicity of a single sea shell with flourishes and the sentiment "May you find life's simple beauty in unexpected places" - Quick Cards - Shell $6.95 - was quickly a favourite and must have. I highlighted the shell with bronze glitz glitter gel and coloured using water coloured pencil crayons, all from CTMH.
I used images stamped from the set Key Moments B1392 - "Every moment in time is a gift and a blessing" to highlight this card. The key is popped with foam tape and three antique copper brads from the metal assortment provide the perfect finish to this card.
And last but not least, the images from the Art Philosphy cartridge co-ordinated with the Hooray Bouquet D1491 and Vintage Type #D1481 make this card quick and simple to put together. Add some ribbon from the Cocoa ribbon collection, some bling buttons from the Bling Assortment, and you're finished.
I know you'll enjoy the fun of Footloose as much as I do.
