CTMH Simply Inspired Blog Hop

We are back! Seems like forever since we had a blog hop!  This one features product from the new Close To My Heart Seasonal Expressions 1.
This seasonal idea/product booklet is good from Jan - April.
If you arrived here from Bren Yule's blog you are on the right track. If you get lost in the circle at anytime you can find a list here.

For my entry I decided to show you a totally new product "Thin Cuts"!
You know we have fabulous Cricut cartridges but now we have added some 
metal dies that you can use in your favorite cutter. You can see how it cut out the bunny leaving a nice border around the edge.
This set is called Spring Critters and was used on the bunny on this card.
Here is the matching stamp set C1638 Spring Critters

Aren't they just darling?  And that paper that goes so well with my Easter theme is called Penelope!

Notice anything different about the pack of paper?  Well, our paper packets now come with 5 double sided patterned sheets 2 of each and then 2 sheets of PML sheets that you can cut out and use on layouts or cards!  No cardstock in the paper packet now just lots of yummy pattern paper.

The card is a circle side step card.  Mine started with a 5 1/2" circle and although it is hard to see there are steps on the right side of card.  I used the pattern found here and made it 5 1/2" instead of
6 1/2".  I will be posting how I cut mine in a few days so check back.

Other items used on this card:
White, Canary, Pixie, Crystal Blue, and Pear Cardstock
Chocolate ink pad
Tender Oink, Barely Beige and Warm Grey ShinHan Markers
Art Philosophy, Artiste and Artbooking CTMH Cricut Cartridges
Sparkles, Thin 3-D Foam Tape and EZ Dots Adhesive.

Your next stop is the fabulous Lisa Stenz.  Enjoy your journey!
