We have 9 NEW paper packs in the new Annual Inspirations! 9!! WooHoo! I am excited about ALL of them! But, I have to pace myself! The new Annual Inspiration Idea Book is an annual book! So...breathe...not! LOL. 

I will be featuring a new paper pack each month! Now, don't worry, I know there are 12 months in a year....not 9 (9 new paper packs). CTMH has a few surprises planned throughout the year to bring some new additional paper packs to our crafty hands! I can't wait! But, back to the featured paper pack----drum roll please----

Birthday Gift using Base & Bling Jewelry

Hi! A friend is celebrating her birthday today! We don't get to see each other often, and today we are having a girls lunch to celebrate her birthday! So, I went to my happy place and grabbed My Close to My Heart Base & Bling products and whipped up a couple of necklaces. I used my Cricut and CTMH Artiste cartridge to make the card, stamped the cute angel, colored her with our ShinHan markers and a few Copics, and put it all together! Very easy and quick gift! Of course, I went ahead and made two more for the other girls joining us!
