Close to my Heart | NEW Seasonal Expressions Book!

Welcome, 2018! Not only is it the start of a brand new year (yay!), but Close to my Heart's brand new Seasonal Expressions book starts today, too! And is it ever a good one! :)

You can check it out here: 2018 Seasonal Expressions Book, but I'll give you some highlights ;)

The first collection is Chelsea Gardens. I love how it is floral, but without pink - making it a bit more neutral and easier to use with pictures of my boys (although I'm coming around a bit to using 'girly' papers or colours on pages for them).  And the marble paper in the collection... 😍 😍

Here are some artwork examples using it:

Next up is Make Waves. This is perfect for the little girls in your life! The colours are also great for spring or Easter photos. My favourite paper in this collection is the rainbow stripe/chevron piece. Those ones are always so versatile!

And some artwork using Make Waves:
This next collection is my absolute favourite out of the new Seasonal Expressions - Stargazer. The colours are 👌  and it also really great because we've recently been to the Kennedy Space Center, so I can't wait to make some pages for that using this collection! My boys are really into rockets and space right now, and I have always really been into stars and constellations, so it's just the perfect collection in so many ways! And I love both the coordinating cardmaking and scrapbooking Stargazer stamp sets. So excited to get using this collection!

And some artwork using it:

And last, but not least is Gimme Some Sugar.  This is a soft, fun collection with some cute cooking/baking papers included. It also has a coordinating Cut Above kit to make a recipe binder - fun! And a Picture My Life coordinating set called Be-YOU-tiful which is really.... beautiful! Haha!

Lastly, some artwork created using the collection:
So, that is a quick peek at the new collections in the new Seasonal Expressions book! Be sure to check out the whole thing in its entirety - there is so much amazing stuff in it! Lots of awesome new stamp sets, embellishments, and some great new Thin Cuts! 

And be sure to stop by my shop for anything you need! craftwithnicole.closetomyheart.ca

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you had a wonderful New Year celebration (even if that included being in bed by midnight, like me) and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018!
