Carta Bella-- Gone Camping


Every year my duaghter goes to camp, I end up scrapbooking her.  I guess its my way of dealing with missing her:)

Below is 4 pages using Carta Bella's 'Gone Camping' line.  I knew I just needed to have this line once it came out. I screams camping and all things outdoors!

For the first LO, I cut out a canoe on my cricut.  

For the second LO, I stamped some paint splatters and then I dripped some CTMH brown pait drops.  I wish I did this on the first LO.  For the second LO, I did copy this one.  I hate to copy, but I loved it.  Every time I tried to think of something else to do, I kept coming back to this. 

On this page, I cut the title using my cricut.  I'm getting good at welding words!

Since I still had pictures, but no energy to do another LO, I used CTMH's Pocket Plus Memory Protectors-- Design 1.

Photoplay-- Free Bird


I came across these nice pictures of my daughter with her GS camp friends.  She has known these girls for over 4 years.  This year, my daughter is too old for camp. So, she decided to be a counselor!  The good thing is, her friends will also be counselors.

I found this sketch in my CTMH 'Love of Color' book.  If you don't have this, then you must purchase it!  The book has lots of ideas.

I'm trying to use all of my supplies, so I broke out some Maya Road orange spray.  I sprayed the love chipboard and then dripped some on the white LO base.  I had random small rectangle on my desk, so I used this as well.

Here is a closer look:

Bella Blvd-- Island Escape

Hello,  I have a week off between jobs. So, what's a girl to do??  Scrapbook!

Here's a LO I did using Bella Blvd's Island Escape.  The funny thing is these are pictures from NH-- which is not an Island Escape!  No worries, the paper still works:)

I found the sketch on Pinterest.  I love to use a bunch of different elements because flat is not me!  So, I used some CTMH twine & bling, along with Bella Blvd's washi tape, felt bow and chip board.

Here's a closer look at the page:

I hope this has inspired you to get your groove on and scrap!

PhotoPlay-- Best Dad Ever


As many of you may know, my dad passed in February.  Although we had a lot of time to prepare, it was still very hard.  On one hand, I am grateful that he is no longer suffering.  But on the other hand, I'd like to see him just one more time:(

When I saw PhotoPlay's new line called Best Dad Ever, I knew I just had to have it!

The LO is very simple with one picture.  But that picture spoke volumes to me.  The picture was taken 1-2 years before my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.  Up to that point, my dad was very active-- always helping us girls paint our homes, etc.  When we moved into our Ash Street house, this was the last time my dad could help.  Climbing ladders were tough.

I am thankful for all the memories and know I'll see my dad again.

Thanks, Maureen

Carta Bella-- Spring Market LO

Hello, just getting caught up on some posting!

Here's a LO I made using Carta Bella's Spring Market line.  I am just in love with these fun colors and black/white gingham!

Here is a closer look.  To fill in the white space, I broke out my CTMH paint set.  First, I splattered some yellow paint.  Then, I brushed out some strokes in yellow.

Color Play-- Play Ball LO


Summer time for me has always meant Fenway Park and the Soxs.

Here's a LO using Color Play's Play Ball paper line and ephemera pack.

The LO was inspired by a soccer LO I found on Pinterest.  To do it, I cut various sized strips of paper.
For the embellishments I used some Bella Blvd embellies-- felt pennant and baseball title.  The rest were from the Colorplay Play Ball ephemera pack.

Here's a closer look at the pages.
You may notice some paint splashes.  To do this I used CTMH's "Timeless Texture' Stamp.  I just inked it up in Toffee ink and presto!  No worrying about splattering.

For the second page, I used a flip flap.  There were just too many pictures.

Here's one last look.

Keep cool this summer and thanks for stopping by,

Photo Play-- Those Summer Days


In honor of Shark Week, here is a layout using Photo Play's 'Those Summer Days' paper line.

In 2015, my daughter spent a week on Martha's Vineyard, where the movie Jaws was shot.  Its not fair that sharks get such a bad rap.  But, I hate to admit this-- I was scared when swimming recently on the cape:(  I realize that the chance of getting bitten by sharks is extremely low, but its scary nonetheless.

I cute out the Summer shape, borders, and tags using the Circut.

Here's a look at the second page.  Check out Michelle and Obama:)

CTMH Sentiment Cards


I'm back again with another CTMH class.  Using CTMH's 'True Love' paper line, I created 5 cards.

The first cards used CTMH's 'Floral Delivery' stamp.  This set comes with thin cuts, which makes it so much easier!

To match the paper, I broke out my Copics markers.  Love this stamp/thin cut set!

A fellow consultant, Anna Jargin, created this beautiful card using CTMH's 'Share the Joy' stamp and thin cut set.

The set comes with 2 stamps sets, full of sentiments.  This one is perfect for a birthday.

Using the 'Share Joy' set, here is a Thank You card.

Its so easy to create these cards, just simply change up the paper and sentiments and you have a card quick!

This card is my favorite.  I got the inspiration from the current catalog. 

The stamps set is called 'Thank You Badge'.

The last card was a quick card using the 'Get Well Soon' stamp set.

If you are interested in this class or ordering a kit to go, please sign up on classes tab.

CTMH Into the Wild

Hi, I'm back again this time with some layouts.  CTMH has a cute new line called 'Into the Wild'.  The colors are perfect for all things outdoors.

Here's a look at the LOs.

For the first LO, I cut out a large 7.5 inch star in Sapphire CS and then various circles.  Using Fern, I cut out some star borders.

For the second LO, I used a Pewter Gray LO base and the layered the various patterned paper. I used a die cut for the two circles and cut out the Explore banner from the 'Cut Out' sheet.
For the last LO, I used the CTMH Cricut Going Places Cartridge.  I cut out the scenic view title and the compass in Sapphire blue and White.

These kits will be ready to ship on on June 25.  If you'd like to order a kit, please see the kit tab on blog.  On July 13th, I will be teaching this LO class in Braintree.
