Welcome to the Annual Inspirations 2016/2017 New Product Blog Hop! This is a chance to see many of the new products from the brand new catalog used in a variety of ways. The blog hop goes around in a complete circle
If you get lost, a full list of participants on this blog hop can be found on Melinda's blog.
You should have arrived here from Maureen's blog.
I chose to create two cards for this blog hop.
My two favourite items in the new Idea Book are the Adventure Fundamentals (because I LOVE the bold and bright new colours) and the Flower Market Cricut cartridge. I have had very little time to play with the cartridge as much of my month of July was spent in the hospital and recovering from cancer surgery but this is what I came up with for my first card:
Unfortunately, the use of the new Shimmer Pen doesn't show up in this photo. I covered the Raspberry (dark pink) cardstock with it and I also touched the ends of the Emerald (green) cardstock with it but it just doesn't show well in the photo.
The second card makes use of the new Basic Fundamental Gold Overlays - I can't wait to use more of these on projects. I realized after I had sewn this down that I forgot to peel off the protective layer that is on the backside... NOTE - There IS a protective layer on these and it does make it clearer when that layer is removed!
Also, the back side is silver and they can be used that way if desired, which is a wonderful idea for versatility with these overlays so you are not just limited to gold!
Now, hop on over to Sheila's blog. I am sure she has something wonderful to share with you from the new Annual Inspirations Catalog!
