CTMH Beary Christmas LOs

Hello, its finally getting a bit cooler in Boston.  So, I'm like bring on the HOLIDAYS.. the sweaters, hot cocoa and family get togethers!

I created a two 2-page LO just in time for the holidays.  Once I snap those pics, I can print them and stick down!  Done:)

Below is a look at the LOs. I used CTMH's holiday line call 'Beary Christmas' and it is beary cute!

For the first LO, above, I cut out a banner from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  Then, I put the 'Beary Festive' stickers on it for a title.

For the design, I used a sketch from Pinterest.  The sketch is simple, but it really helps to showcase the colorful paper.

For the second LO, below, I created the title by using the new CTMH 'Going Places' Cricut Cartridge.  I layered the title in Fern and then backed it in Tangerine for a pop of color!

I used a Elizabeth Craft die for the 3 circles.

Well, I hope this LO inspired you for the holidays!  Think of all the fun-- I can't wait!

If you'd like to order this paper line, then please visit my STORE.  If you'd like to order a pre-cut kit, then please see Kit tab at top of page. This kit is available for $24 and an extra $6 if you'd like it shipped.

CTMH Basic Fundamentals

Hello, I'm here today to share a LO I made back in August using CTMH's Basic Fundamental paper line.  I paired the paper with CTMH's Pink Cardstock.  You can use whatever color you like as an accent.

Here is a close up of the first page.  I cut out a heart on the Cricut and layered the patterned paper behind it.  I also added some ribbon and gold compliments.

For the second page, I continued with the layers of paper.  To give the LO interest, I stamped ink blots in CTMH's Heather (Grey) ink.  I also used an retired, background stamp.

Below are the supplies used.

CTMH Falling For You Layouts

Hi, Happy October!

A few weeks ago, I created some Fall layouts using CTMH's "Falling For You" line.  I'll be teaching classes on these LOs on October 7th in Boston and on October 21st in Norwell, MA.  If you can't attend these sessions, then please order your pre-cut kit!  Please see tab on top called 'Kits'.


For a closer look at the LOs, please see below.  All circuit cuts were made using the CTMH Flower Market Cricut cartridge. Just love the fall flowers and wheat.  

The titles Family and Together were cut using CTMH's steel dies.

I hope you have lots of fall memories to fill up these inspiring LOs! Again, I'll be teaching LO classes on October 7th in Boston MA and October 21st in Norwell MA. All kits are pre-cut and ready to prepare! Can't make these classes, then order your kit!

CTMH Halloween Cards: Cats & Bats (oh my!)

Hi and happy September!

Today I'm going to share some cards that I made for Halloween.

On September 23rd, I'm hosting a Breast Cancer Crop.  A portion of the crop fee, along with the proceeds from a basket raffle will be donated to the Katherine A. Gallagher fund of Massachusetts General Hospital. In addition, my fellow crafter and breast cancer survivor, Dona, will be teaching card classes at the event.  All proceeds from the card classes will be donated.

For the Sept 23rd class, I created these 5 cute cards and treat bag using CTMH's new Halloween line called "Cats and Bats".  The paper is very whimsical and fun.  I simply enjoyed creating with it.

For the first card, I worked with the Cats & Bats' Scrapbooking Stamp and Die set (Z4045).  I used the dies to cut out the word boo and the cute little spiders.  To give the card some dimension, I stamped a spider web in the left hand corner and then popped up the word boo! 

Pretty spooky huh?!
For the second card, I used the Cats & Bats Card-making stamp and die set, Z4040.
 My fellow crafters are always trying to challenge me!  So, I took their challenge and created a shaker card.  I can't tell you how many times I sang Taylor Swift's I'm just going Shake song!

Anyway, to create the shaker card I used the Warmest Wishes snow-globe die and the Cats & Bats Card-making stamps. 

This card was inspired by a fellow CTMH consultant, Jenn W.

To make life a bit easier, I printed out this cute saying using CTMH's Artistry Circuit cartridge.  I dressed it up a bit using CTMH's new Ribbon Border die. 
When I think of Halloween, sugar and candy definitely come to mind.  So I created this cute little bag and filled it with treats.  For the title, I used the Cats & Bats Scrapbooking die/stamp set.
I hope these cards and treat bag got you inspired to break out the fall stuff and create!  Please visit My Store if you'd like to purchase any items.  Or, see Kits Tab to sign up for the class.

CTMH Cards with Basic Fundamentals

Hi, sorry I've been MIA lately! In July, I travelled to Ireland with my family.  To me, it seemed like my summer was divided into two parts-- the part before Ireland and then afterwards. Just a lot of planning beforehand, then a lot of catching up afterwards.  It didn't help that I travelled to Chicago for work a week after I got back!

Anyway, here are some cards I made using the new CTMH Basic Fundamental line.  I paired the line with our new color cardstock-- Bashful.  Bashful is a nice soft shade of pink. 

 For the first card, I used a stamp from the current Seasonal catalog, Scripty Thank You. The Seasonal catalog will be retiring this week (!).  So be sure to check it out before its discounted.  The stamp comes with a coordinating oval die cut.
 For the second card, I used a stamp/die set from the new catalog.  The set is called 'Beautiful You and it is beautiful!

To make the flower, I used the new Bashful Ink and Blosom.  Love these 2 together.
The third card is my favorite!  My daughter loves dachshund dogs!  I had so much fun paper piecing this cute dog!


I hope you enjoyed these cards! Thank you so much for stopping by.
