CTMH--- Feels Like Home 8 page LO

Hello and happy Sunday!

For some reason I am so looking forward to Spring this year.  It's strange because overall Boston did not have a bad winter.  We only had a couple of storms which is not the norm for us.

Moving onto Spring... I created an 8 page scrapbook kit using CTMH's Feels Like Home.  This line has beautiful greens, sugarplums, sapphire blue, grey and black and white colors, complete with shiplap!

Here is a closer look at the pages.  To add a little pop of color, I cut out some images in Sapphire blue.

For the third LO, I was inspired by Jana Eubank.  To create these squares, I cut out a bunch of 3 inch circles and then scored them using the Cricut. 

For the last LO, I cut out a Fern heart and embellished it with the CTMH compliments.

I hope to have lots of Spring memories to fill these pages!

If you would like to order a pre-cut kit or order a consultant guide, please see the Kits tab.  The kits/guides will be available on April 6th.

CTMH: So Much Happy-- 6 page Scrapbook LO

Hello and happy March!

It's been snowing like crazy in the Boston area, but spring is close-- I can feel it:)

My oldest has been studying in Europe this semester.  Using CTMH's So Much Happy line, I created some fun, travel LOs.  So far, my daughter has been to Italy, France and Germany.  Next week, she is going to Spain.  Oh what a life!

Here's the 6 layouts.

The first LO was taken from the Workshop Your Way (WYW).  Because I love all of the paper's colors, I had to have these little strips!  I changed the LO up a bit and added Journey as a title from the CTMH 'You Are Here' Cricut collection.

For the second LO, I cut out a square shape using CTMH's Art Philosophy cartridge.  This cartridge is an oldie but goodie!  And I love the Rainbow &.  Title and sun cut using CTMH's 'You Are Here' cartridge.

For the Last LO, I chose 'Best Trip Ever' as a title.  I also die cut a tag and little heart using CTMH X Thin Cuts

I will be teaching this scrapbook class in April.  Pre-cut kits will begin shipping next weeks.  Cutting Guides and e-files are also available.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Go Spring!

CTMH "I Heart Us"

Hello and happy February!

I'm here today to share 6 pages I created using CTMH's "I Heart Us" paper line.  The paper line is very colorful with its rainbow pattern.  The line works with both boy and girl pictures.

Here's a look at all six pages.

Taking a closer look, you'll see that added some black photo mats and scalloped edges to make this funky design.

For the second LO, I had some family pictures in mind.  So, I cut out a "Our Family" banner.

For the last LO, I used a variety of chipboard and sticker hearts.

I'll be making some pre-cut kits and offering a consultant cutting guide.  If you'd like to purchase one, please click on the Kit tab.

CTMH Feels Like Home Card Class

Hello, I'm back again.

Today I'm heart to show you about some cards I recently created.  Some of the cards use stamps that recently retired.  However, I have a few extra stamp sets as I'll be teaching this class in January at our fourth annual Winter Wonderland Overnight Crop.

For this class, I got a little help from my CTMH friends-- Becca Whitham and Liz Johnson.  Both are fabulous designers and once I saw a couple of their cards my mind was made up!

Here's a close up of the cards:
This is one of my favorite cards.  Liz Johnson of Liz Ann Designs created this and I just changed up the colors to match the Feels Like Home paper line.  Colors:  Sugarplum, Fern, New England Ivy, Sapphire, and Heather.

Here is a card using CTMH's  Thin Cut Borders.  I used the Border set to make a notebook border and a pull tab.  I then used CTMH's retired pull tab stamp set to stamp 'Open Me' and 'Happy Birthday'.

 The next card uses CTMH's Shaker and Confetti Die set.  You can purchase silver and gold sequins to put inside the shaker.  There is also a die to make your own confetti.  To match the paper line, I made some Sugarplum confetti.  I used CTMH's Stitched Hearts die set to make the small heart.
To make this card, I used CTMH's Decorative Border set again.  This set is awesome!

The last card is another one of my favs. Becca Whitham created this desgin and I love it!

Also, this is one of my favorite stamp sets and I have 3 in my inventory:)  If you missed ordering this stamp set and need it, please let me know.

I'll be teaching all 5 cards at the January Winter Wonderland Overnight Crop at the Sea Crest Hotel in Falmouth MA.  If you can't make this event, then order your pre-stamped kit now.

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Heart Happy

Hello and happy new year!

CTMH just came out with a new line called Happy Heart and it is super cute.  So far, I created one layout and wanted to show you.

This LO is very special to me.  The LO documents a 16th birthday party that my youngest daughter attended.  Sadly, one of her friends, Chris, passed away 1 month after this party.  Chris had epilepsy and died from a seizure.  My daughter designed a sweatshirt in Chris' honor to raise money for his family. 

I never met Chris, but he will be ever in my heart as someone my daughter truly loved as a friend.

If you'd like to order Happy Heart, then please do so now.  The line is available through February 28 or while supplies last.

Thank you for stopping by today.

CTMH 'Oh What Fun' Scrapbook LO's-- 6 pages


I'm back again with another kit from CTMH.  This kit was created by me using the 'Oh What Fun' paper line.  And, I had so much fun with this line!  The colors are so bright.

Here are all 6 pages:

For a closer look, here is my favorite page:

Here, I created a winter LO-- perfect for skiing, sleding, skating or just hanging out in the winter.  The colors are fine for either a boy or a girl.

Because you most likely have dozens of holiday pictures, here's one layout holiday style:

The Cricut images were cut out using CTMH's Season of Joy Cricut digital cartridge.  If you haven't ordered this digital cartridge, then hurry as supplies are running low:(

For the last LO, I went back to my winter theme.  I stamped and die-cut an assortment of snowflakes.

The 'Oh What Fun' Scrapbook pre-cut kit and/or instructions and Cricut files will be ready to ship next week.  Be sure to get your kit in time for winter time memories.

CTMH Hello Pumpkin Deluxe Scrapbooking Kit


I'm home today recovering from a migraine:(  I've been busy creating all sorts of pages.  Today, I'll show you 4 scrapbook LO's using CTMH's Hello Pumpkin Scrapbook kit.

Here CTMH mixed two lines together-- Hello Pumpkin and Boutique.  Hello Pumpkin is Halloween/Orange style, but when paired with Boutique, it's something quite different!

Here's a closer look at each page:
The first one is my favorite-- I just love how the page is folded down.  Of course, I had to add my own twist to the kit by stapling down the folds, adding a title, extra pictures, a tag and a bow.  I find that when I add my own pictures to a kit, I kind of just go with it.

Okay, I said this kit was different and this LO will show you how different:
This LO has a funky, boy/skate-board feel.  To make it my own, I stamped some paint splatters in Pewter Gray.  I also broke out my scrapbook stamp stash and added a 'Reel Life', 'Love your Face', '#FRIENDS', and EPIC sentiments/sayings.  Again, I just sort of went with the pictures. And man, were these pictures odd!  The pictures were of my daughter at a party holding a pet snake!  Instead of holding the snake, I'd be standing on a table screaming.  I hate snakes:)

CTMH also designed 2 more single pages.  Here's a look below.

Well, this kit is only available through 12/31/18 or as supplies last. Be sure to get yours before they sell out.

CTMH Tis the Season 8 page LO

Hi and happy Thanksgiving weekend!

With Thanksgiving comes Christmas.  And, I've been busy creating some LOs to help you document this wonderful holiday using CTMH's 'Tis the Season' paper line.

I had so much fun working with all the rich reds, greens and grays.  To make it pop more, I added some Gold glitter paper for trim and ornaments.

I'm not sure what LO I like the best-- I like them all!

I'll be teaching this class at our fourth annual Winter Wonderland, which will take place on January 17-20 in Falmouth Ma.  Kits will also be available.

Kits will ship the first week of December.  Cutting guides available too.

Thanks for stopping by.  And hopefully this gets you into the Holiday spirit!

CTMH Grateful Heart Fall Layouts


I'm back again today with another project using CTMH's Fall line-- Grateful Heart.

When I saw this paper, my first thought was patches.  The colors are just vibrant and beautiful.  With the patch-work in mind, below are the 3 LOs I created:

Here is a closer view of the LOs:

To create the little scribbled circles, I used CTMH's new stamp:'Tis the Season' Scrapbook stamp set.

I'm really enjoying the Grateful Heart paper line. I can't wait to go out and take some Fall pictures! I will be offering this LO class at our overnight scrapbook crop in Dedham MA on November 2nd. If you can't make this class, then order your kit. Pre-cut kits will be shipped on Friday, Oct 5th. Thanks for stopping by, Maureen
