Damask Divas Blog Hop Featuring Close To My Heart Avonlea Paper Pack

Category: My Crafty Projects  |  Permalink

Published: Monday, July 30, 2012

It's blog hop time! My wonderful Damask Divas team is doing a blog hop featuring a new paper pack each month. This month we are going to be sharing our Avonlea projects. It's a brand new paper pack from Close To My Heart that is available to order started TODAY on my CTMH Website. Actually all the new products, including the CTMH Artiste Cricut Collection are available starting today. SO EXCITING.. check out the new Idea Book or browse around for products on my site, here.  

Ok so on to my Avonlea project.... I made this fun magazine file using the MUST HAVE Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Collection. It is so simple to assemble and I even made a quick video to share how to put it together. I cut the magazine file at 6", as indicated on in the cartridge handbook. Then I cut a second one at 5.5" and trimmed it down to make it work for a layered look on the Avonlea Teal cardstock. Worked pretty good. I made a few Avonlea cards with a few different sentiments and placed all the cards in the magazine holder and wrapped them up cute with a cello bag. Pretty cute little gift, huh?
