Make It From Your Heart - Pattern # 23 & 30

So as you found out yesterday, the book "Make It From Your Heart", is one of my very favorite new products in the new CTMH Idea Book. So here are 2 cards made from the patterns available in this book. 

The first card is made from Pattern # 30 and made with the NEW paper "Flirty" and of course, the new cricut cartridge Artiste and coordinating stamp sets included in the Artiste collection. 

The second card is made from Pattern # 23 and made with the NEW paper "Clementine", Artiste cricut cartridge and the new product Burlap Ribbon.

So there you have it... 2 more cards from the NEW "Make It From Your Heart" book!

My Favorite NEW Products

On Wednesday August 1st, the new CTMH Idea Book will be available!
I have to tell you, this is my very favorite Idea Book since I started with CTMH. Every Idea Book that comes out, I love the products, but there is always a paper pack (or 2) that just don't do it for me... There is not one paper pack in this book I don't love!
I always have a favorite product I LOVE... but this Idea Book I have 3!!
So today I will give you a sneak peek at my 3 favorite products and also a project I made using them.
I do have to apologize, I did not use any new paper, but instead decided to use retired paper.

My 1st favorite product:

The New Cricut Artiste Collection.

My 2nd favorite product:

The New "Make It from Your Heart" pattern book.
This book is awesome! I was so worried when CTMH announced they were going to retire the How-To books, but now I am so happy. This publication is soft covered, less expensive and the patterns, products & ideas are more current.
I have already made cards using most of the card patterns in this book (which I will blog about starting tomorrow)

My 3rd favorite product:

The New alcohol markers. These markers are incredible and easy to use!
I love these markers for a couple reasons. The main one is... They are alcohol markers, and if you have ever used alcohol markers, I don't need to explain! If you haven't... You have to try these markers.
Another reason I love them, CTMH thinks of everything, so when you order 1 (for example: Cotton Candy, like pictured below) you actually get 2 markers!! The one you ordered plus a coordinating color for highlighting/shading!

So now, here is a project I made using my 3 favorite new products. It is a set of 6 card in a card holder.

The card holder is cut from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge.

There are 3 of each style of card...

This card is from "Pattern # 21" in the Make It From Your Heart pattern book

And this card is from "Pattern # 22" in the Make It From Your Heart pattern book

And the flowers are colored with the new alcohol markers.

So now you have seen my 3 favorite products!!

1 week until Convention

Only 1 more week until I leave for Dallas to the Close To My Heart Convention. I can't believe it is almost time to leave. When I booked my flight, it was 312 days until I left, now it is 7 days!!!
I can't wait to see the new CTMH Idea Book which will be released at Convention, all the new papers & stamps... So exciting!!
I'm also very excited to see all the girls I met last year at convention. I made some great friends, some who I have kept in constant contact with since I left Disneyland last year.
This year I have made 5 different cards for the card swap all using the Florentine paper, and here is a sneak peek at 1 of my swap cards.
