Jeepers Creepers Two 2-page Halloween Layouts


Hello, it will soon be October and you know what that means.... Halloween!

I created these 2 Layouts last weekend and will be teaching them at our next crop on October 22nd in Norwell.  If you can't attend the crop or don't live in the area, then the pre-cut LO's can be shipped or delivered.  Please see the "Kits" tab at the top of this page.  The cost of this kit is only $22.

The $22 also includes one horizontal 4X6 Memory Protector.  CTMH released this new product in August and I just love them.  It's a great way to add even more pictures!


This Memory Protector can go between either of the pages above. I plan to put in additional 4X6 pictures.  The new CTMH paper lines include these 'Project Life' like cards that can be used in the protector sheets.  The sheets also have a 3X4 size.  Please see page 12 of the Annual Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

CTMH Holiday Expression Blog Hop


Welcome to the CTMH Holiday Expression Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Brenda's Blog, then you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along away, please click HERE.

When CTMH unveiled the Holiday Expression book at the Convention, I lost it!  I loved all 4 paper lines.  I chose to work with "Swan Lake" first.  It definitely has a Fall look, but as you will see in my post tomorrow, it can be used for other occasions. 

After dropping off my oldest daughter off to college in Vermont, my youngest and I stumbled upon this beautiful farm.  The farm was covered in picture perfect sunflowers.  They also had tractor and an old red truck-- both of which made perfect pictures!

Here is page 1,  I cut out the title, wreath and sunflowers using the new CTMH Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.  This is another must have cartridge:)

A closer look at page 2. 

I  hope you enjoyed this LO.  Please be sure to visit all of the consultants' blogs. Next up is Vicki. Here is a link to her blog: Vickie's Blog.

Thanks, Maureen

Jeepers Creepers Halloween Cards

Happy September!

We just launched our new Holiday catalog on September 1st and it is loaded with goodies!  To get ready for the holidays, here are some Halloween cards that I created from the Jeepers Creepers paper line.

For the first card, I used "Monstrous Halloween" stamp and coordinated thin cuts.  You can get both the stamp set and thin die cuts for only $26.95!  Or you can buy the stamps only for $13.95.  Great deal either way.
For the second card, I used the new "Sugar Skull" stamp set. Most of these images can be cut on the Cricut using our new Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.

I colored in the skull using my Copics markers.
The last card was created using the "Silly Spider Web" stamp set.  The sentiment was cut from the Sugar Skull stamp set.
The "Silly Spider Web" set is on page 12 of the Holiday Expressions catalog.
I hope you enjoyed these cute Halloween cards.  I'll be teaching a class on these cards on Sept. 10th at 3 pm in Norwell Ma.  If you can't attend or live out of area, please contact me for a set to be shipped to you.
Thanks, Maureen

CTMH September SOTM Blog Hop

Hi, welcome to the September SOTM blog hop.  If you've come here from Haley's Blog, then you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along the way, please click HERE.

With summer fading fast:(,  I decided it was time to make some fall cards.  And, what symbolizes fall more than pumpkins! 


For my pumpkin, I stamped it in "Goldrush" and inked the green in "Fern".  To pull out the blacks, I stamped the sentiment in Black.

I used CTMH's new Swan Lake paper pack for this card.  The line has many fall tones.  I will be working with this paper line in the weeks to come.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave a comment and be sure to visit all of the other consultants' blogs.  Next up is Vickie-- here is a link to her wonderful blog:  Vickie's Blog.

CTMH New Product Blog Hop

Hi, welcome to the new product blog hop!  If you've come here from Terrie's Blog, then you are on the right track.  The hop is one big circle.  Should you get lost along the way, please click HERE.

For my first project, I worked with the "Whimsy" Fundamental Line.  Whimsy's light colors are perfect for scrapbooking summer and tropical vacation getaways.

I paired the paper with the "Baby Girl Compliments" and awesome coordinating ribbon.  You'll see that the Baby Girl compliments work well with my pictures of my then 12 year old daughter in Martha's Vineyard-- she's certainly no baby!  The compliments work for many occasions, so don't be fooled by the name.

Next up is Alyson.  Please visit her blog:  Alyson's Blog and all of the other CTMH consultants.
Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Florence LOs


I had to today off, so I figured I'd get back to blogging!

Here is the second LO that I did for my trip to Heidelberg Germany.  I was inspired by a LO that a former consultant, Dana Kessler, created.  Dana is a CTMH rock star-- her work is unbelievable. Julie Carriere and myself stalked,  I mean met Dana at the CTMH convention this past June in Orlando!  Of all the questions we asked Dana, we didn't ask-- where does your inspiration come from?  Dana if you are reading- where does your inspiration come from?

Here is the LO inspired by one of Dana's project.  I just love the shield.

These pictures were taken in Heidelberg Square, the Old square.  Last August, Europe was experiencing a heat wave.  Stan and I had a drink to cool down.
Close-up of second page.  Used the sentiment from a now retired travel stamp-- Oh the places you'll go!

Above is the LO I featured earlier in the week. The Florence line is only available through August 31st. Please let me know if you'd like to order a set.

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH August SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the August SOTM blog hop.  If you've come here from Terrie's Blog, then you are on the right track.  The hop is one giant circle, should you get lost along the way please click here X.

The August stamp, Purr-fect, is super cute!  You'll have fun decorating the cat-- whether it be for Halloween, a birthday or some other special event.  With my daughter taking off to college soon, I thought this would make a cute Halloween card:)

Yesterday I was in the mood to fuzzy cut.  So, I took out some cardstock, stamped and cut away! 

I used the new Fundamental X line, which is great for Fall.

The star was cut out using the new CTMH star cut die set. 

If you would like to order the SOTM (or earn it for free) and do not have a consultant, then please visit my Store.

I hope you like this little card.  Please be sure to visit all of the consultant's blogs.  Next up is talented Darly's-- here is the link:  Darly's Blog.  Enjoy!

CTMH Florence Layout


I hope you are enjoying the summer.  I can't believe it's August tomorrow.  At my grocery store they have started to advertise Halloween candy!!!  I can take the "Back To School" commercials, but Halloween??

Anyway, if you haven't taken a look at CTMH's Florence line, then here is your chance.  The eclectic line debuted in the Seasonal Expressions catalog, which will be retiring on August 31st. 

The colors in Florence are beautiful-- oranges, yellows and blues.  I chose to use this line to showcase my trip to Heidelberg Germany.  We travelled up to the old fort in Heidelberg and looked down upon the city, full of orange brick roof tops.  The scenery was absolutely stunning.


 Here is a closer look at the first page. 

I inked the edges with desert sand.

To fill up the blank space, I stamped a geometrical shape in the corner and then stamped a travel sentiment.

The second page captures more beautiful images of Heidelberg's roof tops and river.

What a wonderful trip!

If you love this paper line, please remember it's only available through 8/31/16.  Please contact me if you'd like to order yours today.

Thanks, Maureen
