Whether you’re ready or not, fall is on its way! September 1st brings the launch of the new Holiday Expressions Idea Book. Where our Annual Inspirations covers all the basics – albums & supplies, cardstock & inks in our 4 exclusive color palettes, year round stamp sets… The Holiday Expressions covers the fall holidays with themed papers and coordinating stamps & embellishments as well as other holiday themed products.
For September, we’ll be playing with the Halloween collection called Cats & Bats. It features fun oragami animal shapes (cats, bats, foxes & owls), geometric patterns, polka dots, diagonals & ombre.
The coordinating complements include lots black glittery pieces, and goldrush, black and Emerald dots.
Here are some pictures of the cards and layouts I made with this fun collection –
I don’t personally send Halloween cards, so I decided to put these papers to work in other ways. The bright colors are great for birthdays, thank yous & pick me up cards. Plus you can use the less vibrant patterns & colors for your more serious card needs.
I don’t have a ton of Halloween pictures, so I was able to use this kit to document 3 different Halloweens. My oldest son is wearing the same costume in 2 layouts because he wanted to be John Glenn both years – he still does this – he was ‘Steve the guy from Minecraft’ for the past 2 years – we’ll see if he’ll shoot for 3.
Be sure to check out all the new fun starting on Friday. You can get your own copy of the Holiday Expressions absolutely free by placing an order either directly through me or at gerri.closetomyheart.com.
