Paper Trail Blog Hop- Oh My Darling Clementine!

It's time for a bit of the old and a bit of the new! This month, the theme for the Paper Trail Blog Hop is Anything Goes! Why? With convention having just been held in mid-July and a new Idea Book going "live" August 1st, some of us have new goodies and some are waiting patiently!

If you have arrived here from Lynne's blog, Field's Finery, you're on the right track. Even if you found this on your own, you can continue on this circular hop!

For me, new product abounds at my house and I'm a happy papercrafter! During the month of August, I am featuring the papers from Clementine, a paper packet that even includes such new colors as Saddle, Cashmere, and Champagne. These subtle yet powerful new neutrals are just gorgeous! Let's take a look:

This simple layout was created using both sides of just one of the Clementine designs. The base paper is one of those yummy new colors-Saddle. You can also spot familiar colors such as Creme Brulee, Sorbet, and Twilight. Together, they represent a palette that could just as easily be at home with end of the summer photos or autumn pictures!

Now let's zoom in to the details of the cluster that provides interest and texture to the layout. Can I say that I LOVE the new Cricut Artiste Collection? All of these shapes were cut with this NEW cartridge from CTMH and the stamped images were created using one of the three stamp sets included with the collection. Pop on a few sparkles from the new brown and tan collection and you have all you need to ready your layout for photos and journaling!

Leave a little message for me so I know that you've stopped by and then it's time to continue your journey through our hop. Next in line is Mary's blog, The Road to Peace of Mind or Escape. Enjoy!
