New Product Spotlight - My Creations Milk Carton


Welcome to our New Product Blog Hop!  Are you ready for some sneak peaks from Close To My Heart's 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book?  The Idea Book goes live on February 1 but Consultants were able to order new product on January 1.  (That is one perk to being a CTMH consultant!) So, many of us have been working away in our craft rooms getting ready to show you some fabulous new items!

If you came here from Rachel Ventura's Blog, then you are on the right track!  The hop is a circle so you can start here and hop all the way around! Following the hop is easy to do.  Just click on the link at the bottom of each post that takes you to the next blog! If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants HERE.

I got so many new things it was hard to decide what to showcase!  I love all the My Creations products that Close To My Heart carries.  My Creation products are chipboard and come in all types of 3D products from small albums, banners, boxes and cubes!  One of the new My Creations products is the Milk Carton (Z1739)!  You get 2 cartons and 2 closure clips for $4.95. The cartons measure 5 1/2" x 3" x 3".  I couldn't wait to get these cute little cartons and alter them!  I made mine with Easter in mind.  Probably because I have a real weakness for those malted bird eggs that come in the milk cartons.    Here is my My Creations Milk Carton for Easter!


I used the new My Peeps (B1402) stamp for the egg border, the wrap around phrase at the top and the marshmallow peep in the center of the Sweet Leaf Grosgrain Ribbon (Z1383) that I tied around the box.  I stamped the eggs in Grey Wool and used a blending pen and inks to 'paint' my eggs.  The colors I used were Pear, Sweet Leaf, Creme Brulee, Cotton Candy and Blush.  The paper board behind the eggs is a piece from the new Lucy Level 2 paper pack (X7149B).  The paper is Perfect for Easter!

For the other side of the carton, I stamped "SPRING" with Cotton Candy ink and again in Creme Brulee ink.  I trimmed out the "i" and the "n" and used foam tape to add on top of the Cotton Candy sentiment.  The little closure clip at the top of the carton that hold it closed is included with the Milk Carton.   Take the clip off and the carton opens to a spout so you can pour out those malted eggs or jelly beans!  Wouldn't these make cute little treats from the Easter Bunny this year?


I hope you enjoyed my little Milk Carton!   If you are local to me, be sure to stop by my Open House Celebration on Saturday, February 11 from 9am until 2pm.   You'll get to see LOTS of new products and even make a card to take home with you!  I'll have several door prizes and lots of Clearance items on hand!

Now, hop on over to Vicki Price's blog to see what she has created!
