July-August New Product Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our blog hop tonight featuring new products that you can find in the CTMH July/August idea book. If you are joining me from the super talented Becca Whitham, welcome!  If you are starting here at my blog, welcome, we are glad to have you! We have 14 consultants sharing projects with us tonight so be sure to scroll through all the blogs by clicking the links at the end of each blog post. 

Now, onto the artwork! For tonight's project I am featuring our Wander paper pack. I love, love, love this paper pack and will be buying lots of it. For me and most of my customers the colours in this one paper was more of a desert feel to it (and while I do have pictures that will work with that from my childhood) living in Ontario, Canada we have more cottage than desert pictures so with the help of my Cricut and the Wander Cricut collection (click here to view it) I changed the feel of the paper to create a more cottage feel for both me and my customers. 

As you can see, this is the original design of the paper:

And I wanted to make a more cottage feel so I used the layout below that comes with the Wander Cricut collection to cut out the sand in Toffee, grass in Evergreen and water inGlacier card stock and layered it over the Paprika, Sundance and Peacock.  I also used the cloud from the layout below but cut them in White Daisy.  

For some added details, I "fussy" cut the title sticker that said Wander apart and popped the letters up with foam dimensional tape. The sun below, I took some Sundance card stock and cut the 2nd largest stitched Circle thin cut and popped it up over the spot where the sun was on the printed paper and stuck a cloud behind the sun. 

To finish the layout off, I added some White dots from the Black and White dots set, some trees that I cut out from the CTMH Timber Cricut collection and added some stickers from the sticker sheet. 

I hope you like the changes I made to this paper to adapt it more to fit the needs of the pictures I have.
