“I love scrapbooks. They are one of the finest ways of dejunking life and abode... A good scrapbook is interesting and inspiring even to the stranger...Well put together scrapbooks and photo albums have warmed more hearts than any bound book... Without a good scrapbook, much that's memorable in life is forgotten or damaged or lost...."

Spring Summer 2012 Idea Book New Product Blog Hop!

Welcome to the New Product Spring/Summer Idea Book Blog Hop!  This hop marks the introduction of a brand new Idea book and allows you a sneak peak at all the fabulous new things you will be able to order come February 1st!!  This hop has 27 wonderful consultants participating and showing off their creations. 

If you have come from Jean's Blog, then you are on the right track!
For this hop I decided to make a couple of scrapbook pages because some of the new paper packs coordinated so nicely with the pictures I had!  The first layout features the Crusin' paper pack along with the silver foil stickease complements that match.  I also borrowed the layout idea from the Victory Workshop on the Go!

The second layout features the Footloose paper pack and the matching chipboard complements.  This pack is perfect for beach photos!

Products used (all CTMH except where noted):
Footloose paper pack
Footloose  complements dimensional elements chipboard shapes
Keepsake felt alphabet
Just Chillin' stamp set
Smoothie, Pear, Lagoon, Creme Brulee, New England Ivy and Sweet leaf ink pads
Crusin' paper pack

Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge

Now "hop" on over to Jen's Blog and check out her beautiful artwork for this special hop!

Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some other great ideas! Remember, the new products will be available starting February 1st!  Contact me (GrigsterN at yahoo.com) to place an order or shop on my website!
