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!

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

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.

CTMH Little Dreamer Cards

Hi again. I'm back to show you some cards I made using CTMH's Little Dreamer line.

For the first card, I used CTMH;s Prickly Pear Card-making stamp.  This set also comes with thin cuts (dies) to cut out the Llama and a cactus. 

To make the card festive, I used my grass scissors and cut some fringe.
 The second card features CTMH's Little Dreamer Card-making stamp and die.   I just love the sentiment-- Always be yourself unless you can be  unicorn then always be a unicorn!

 For the 3rd card, I used CTMH's June Stamp of the Month-- Hello Foxy.  Just like unicorns and llamas, foxes are so in! 

For the fourth card, I used  stamp and die set from the Annual Catalog.  The Annual Catalog will be retiring on August first.  So, if you find this stamp irresistible, then get it today!

For the last card, I used a stamp set from the last Seasonal Catalog. I just love the saying! I do have 1 more stamp set for sale.

I'll be teaching this card class in July-- July 15th in Norwell MA and July 29th in Boston. If you'd like to attend, then sign up today. Can't make it, then order a set!

CTMH Little Dreamer Kit

Hello, I know, I know... I haven't posted in a bit! I've been creating up a storm, so lot's of posts coming, I promise:)

In July, I'll be teaching scrapbooking classes featuring CTMH's Little Dreamer WYW (Workshop Your Way).  The WYW comes with instructions on how to create three 2-page layouts.  But, I enjoy creating my own.

Little Dreamer is very fun and whimsical.  And, its loaded with unicorns! I just love unicorns.  To me they mean individuality.  I've tried to teach both of my daughters to be themselves.  Its no surprise that I will have many pictures to use this paper line with!

 For the second LO, I was inspired by the Seasonal Catalog. Sometimes just little strips of paper can do so much.  I plan on using this layout for my daughter's Middle School graduation.  Love the stamped sentiment-- Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn, then be a unicorn!
For the last LO, I used a design from Pinterest.  If you are not following me on Pinterest, then you my want to.  I have 100's of 1 and 2 page sketches. 

 Lastly, I always find that I have more picture than the photo mats used.  No worries here because the CTMH memory protectors allow me to add up to 6 pictures!

I'll be teaching these classes on July 15th in Rockland at the Doubletree by Hilton. The second class will be held on July 29 in Boston. Can't make either, then order a pre-cut kit! Please see tab on Kits to sign up for class or to order one.

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

CTMH No Worries Kit

Hi everyone,  I hope you are enjoying this weekend. The weather in the Northeast is not the greatest, but I'll take a relaxing Sunday any day:)

I just created a three 2-page layouts using CTMH's new line called "No Worries". Just like the name implies, this paper line is full of beach, palm trees and summer/vacation fun.  I can't wait to put all my pictures in!

The first LO was inspired by sketch I saw on Pinterest.  If you read my blog, you know I just love circles! 

The second LO is my fav.  I just love the beach wood feel-- so rustic.  I cut the tags using CTMH's Art Philopsophy.  I still have one of these cartridge sets if you missed out.

For the third LO, I added  a 6X12 flip flap that can hold another 3-4 pictures.

Here's a look at the flip/flap.  I stamped a cruise ship on the flip/flap for my cruise adventure.

Here is some additional pictures close up.

The Paradise and waves were cut using CTMH's Artistry Cricut Cartridge. Notice the paint brush look-- it was created using CTMH's Brushstroke's stamp (C1608)  This stamp along with Ink Spot are a must have!

 Love these tags, they go great with the Kraft Smile title.
I added a second memory protector for additional pics.

I'll be teaching this class on June 3rd in Norwell and June 17th in Boston MA.  If you can't make those days, then order a pre-cut kit. Please see Kit tab to order yours or take the class.
