Simply Inspired Blog Hop

Welcome to the Simply Inspired Close To My Heart Blog Hop!

Today we are highlighting the brand new Embossing Folders!  If you've come here from the lovely and creative Krista's blog, you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultants here.

I've used three folders on this page.  I used the stripe on the black cardstock, the chevron on my black banner, and the dot on the white daisy cardstock.  The folders are 5" x 7", and they have an open slit on the fold.  I couldn't wait to use this slit to create a fully embossed 12" strip of paper, and it's really simple!  Insert as much of your 12" strip into the folder as you can.  Emboss and then reposition your paper by pulling it through the slit on the folder.  Because the embossing is so deeply imprinted, it's super easy to line up what's already been embossed so that you can create a flawless 12" length!  

Close To My Heart has designed five new Embossing Folders.  
During the month of February, you can get one of these folders free!


Now it's time to hop on over to the remarkably talented Michelle.  She is amazing, and you are going to love her work!  Be sure to follow the circle to be inspired in the many ways you can use your folders!
