New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to our New Product Blog Hop!  As of August 1st, you have been able to view the online Annual Inspirations book, and some of you may have already placed your first order. To aid you in your creativity, we have over 50 consultants sharing their artwork. I guarantee you will be amazed.

If you have come here from Jean McNulty's blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants at Melinda Everitt's blog. Here we go!

I decided to focus on one main paper pack for this hop. Pathfinding has beautiful, rich Fall colors. I wasn't too sure I was sold on Flaxen until I made the first card pictured here with feathers. I think it's more of a yellow, but my lighting wasn't the greatest so it appears a bit green in the photograph. I think my favorite new stamp set in this book is Happy Birds. I was able to combine it with many different paper packs. I will share those in upcoming posts.
