New Idea Book, New Close to my Heart Products, New Project

Can you tell there is a theme going on in my Blog Post Title? 
Today Close to my Heart came out with a new Idea Book. There are SO many new products in it. I went through all my Stamp Sets (16+) and realized that only 2 of them are in the New Idea Book.

I want to share with you today my favorite Paper Pack from this Book.
It is called Seaside. But there are so many things it can be used for besides Beach themed projects. I love the color pallet & prints they put together to create it.

Using this NEW Seaside Paper Pack I made a Baby Diaper. 
It could be used as an invitation, card, or announcement.

CTMH = Close to my Heart
Paper - Seaside Paper Pack (CTMH)
Cartridge - Artiste Cricut Cartrige (CTMH)
Ink - Desert Sand (CTMH)
Sponge - (CTMH) I cut it in 1/4ths and use 1 section to ink the edges of the paper
Pen - Marvy Uchida LePen Journaling Pen (CTMH)

Cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge the following cuts & sizes:
Diaper - size: 4"
              button 34, pg 64
              function - Card/Shift
Oval - size: 4" & 3 1/2"
           button 34, pg 64
           function - Card
Accent - size: 2"
              button 34, pg 64
              function - Accent 3
It's a BOY -  size: 1 1/2"
              button 34, pg 64
              function - Accent 1/shift

  • Ink around the edges with desert Sand Ink. I cut a 3" circle sponge into 1/4th's. Then use one of those sections and dab it onto the ink pad. Then rub it onto the edges of the paper where I want to distress it.
  • Then put dash marks on the "It's a BOY" with the journaling pen. Adhere it to the Accent piece. Then attach to the diaper with foam adhesive to give it some dimension.
