Memories in the Making-- 24 Layouts

Hello,

this past Saturday, I completed 24 scrapbook layouts!  I did this by using CTMH's "Memories in the Making" Calendar kit.  The calendar kit is only available through September 31st or as supplies last.  The kit can by used to make a calendar, layouts or both.

I chose to create the LOs and doubled the LOs to 24 pages by using a guide prepared by a fellow talented CTMH consultant, Laurie Levorson.

Here are the 24 pages.  I can't wait to fill them with pictures!

 To make the pages, the guide used the calendar components and additional paper, cricut cuts, card-stock and bling.

Because CTMH's colors all coordinate, the pages all work.




































I'll be offering this kit as a workshop in September and October.  I only have enough supplies for 7 kits. So, if you'd like a kit please let me know as soon as possible.

Please see kit tab for ordering.

Thanks, Maureen

Supplies:
CTMH Making Memories Calendar Kit; cc9185
CTMH Whimsy Fundamental Paper -- 1/2 pack; Z3350
Card-stock-- various colors-- 20+ sheets
Bling-- Gold Sequins
Pre-cut Cricut Cuts

CTMH Boutique Layouts

Hi, happy Labor Day weekend!

It's September 1st and CTMH just launched their new catalog-- yay!  As consultants we can order from the new catalog 1 month in advance.  So, I'm been crafting away with all the new goodies:)

Below is an 8 page Layout using the Boutique Workshop Your Way (WYW).  And, I did exactly what the name inferred and did it my way!



I had so much fun with this paper line.  For fun, I added a splash of Saffron Yellow.

Here's a closer look at the layouts.

For the first LO, I was inspired by a fellow CTMH Consultant Kelly Fitzgerald.  Her work is amazing!  She used these circled doilies on a Gimme Sugar LO and I loved it.

 Notice the stitching??  I stamped it using CTMH's new stamp called

Notice the little kick of color.

Again, stamped the stitching.  Gotta love the CTMH Flower Market cartridge! 

If you love these LOs, then please click on the kit tab at the top of page.  You can purchase cutting guide and cricut design space file for only $10 or get it free if you purchase $25 in products.

If you don't feel like cutting, then I can do the work for you!

CTMH Central Park Cards

Hello! I just returned from a 2 week trip to China. Thankfully, I have a few days to recover from the jet-lag before returning to work:) So, I spent some time in my craft room creating cards using the CTMH Central Park paper line.

The Central Park line is very festive with bright colors-- perfect for Happy Birthday cards!  I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment inside some of the cards.  All can be used for celebrating those special days.

Here's a closer look at the cards:
This card was created using the Central Park Scrapbooking stamp.  We made this card at a Seasonal 2 launch get together.  I just switched up the papers and recreated it.
For the second card, I used the Making Waves Card-making Stamp/Thin Cut set. This cute stamp set was featured in the Seasonal 1 catalog, which has been discontinued:( However, the stamp/die set is still currently available. So, be sure to pick this one up!




















The 3 card was created using a Happy Birthday Die set from CTMH.  The Happy was stamped from the Central Park Card-making Stamp.
























For the 5th card, I used an older SOTM.  This cute SOTM is no longer available, but I was able to purchase 7 of them-- so I have plenty if you missed on t
his awesome stamp!
























For the 6th card, I used CTMH's Central Park Stamp/Die set. Living close to Boston, I just love these cute buildings. I can envision using this set for Christmas cards too!



















For the last card, I used the Thin Cut set from the Seasonal 2 catalog. I also used this die last month and I can't get enough of it!
























If you'd like to order a set of these cards pre-cut/stamped, then please see the Kit tab on top of page. Also, if you would like to recreate these cards, be sure to order the stamp sets while they are still available. For the discontinued stamps, please email me if interested.

CTMH Fresh Air Cards

Hi, I've been busy this weekend!

Using the remaining paper from the Fresh Air paper pack, I created 7 cards. And, as my other post said, I still have remaining paper and embellishments!

Here's a look at the cards up close:
 This is my favorite.  The stamp set is the June Stamp of the Month.  So, if you spend $50 in products, this stamp is only $5!
The second card was made using CTMH's thin cut (die) set called.  Just put this in your BigShot or Cuttlebug and boom, you are done!
The next card is a simple Thank You card-- perfect for a man or woman.






















 Another Thank You card.
Birthday Card.
You can stamp a sentiment inside the card, either Happy Birthday, Thank you or Happy Father's Day.  You decide:)





















This is another one of my favs!  And, it was easy:)  Used another one of CTMH's Die Set.  Die Cut this in Vellum because I want to see the trees behind sentiments.




















I'll be teaching this card class on June 30th at my home.  If you can't attend and would like the kit, please click here.

CTMH Fresh Air LO

Hi and Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I just love CTMH's new line called 'Fresh Air'.  Living in New England, this line will come in handy, whether it be travelling to New Hampshire, Vermont or Maine.

Using the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way (WYW) and some cardstock, I was able to create 6 scrapbook Layouts (LO's) and 6 cards and I still have paper and embellishments left!

Below is a look at the 6 scrapbook LO's.



































Taking a closer look at the first LO, I cut out the circled arrow using CTMH's Artistry Cricut Cartridge. And, continued the arrowed theme by cutting 2 more arrow shapes in a Glacier (Light Blue).

I used the NE Ivy Green ribbon to embellish the photomats.  I taped the ribbon to the back of mat, so this makes it easy to slip the pictures in.  I also added some Gold Foil strips.  If you haven't used CTMH's Gold and Silver Foil paper, then you are missing out!

For the second LO, my inspirations was a LO created by Dana Kessler years ago. Again, I used the CTMH Artisry Cricut cartridge. This time I cut out a shield and then using the CTMH "You Are Here" Cricut Cartridge, I cut out the title-- Wild at Heart.  Then I embellished it with the stickers and copper foil pieces.

You many also notice some paint splatters.  I did that first and then stamped some thread pieces.  The thread stamp was not CTMH, but I could have used CTMH's Ink Blot.  Sometimes I like to fill in the blank space.








For the 3rd LO, I did a more traditional LO and layered the paper on top of each other.  I also cut out some wood pieces and used the Compliments/Stickers for the titles.  I then doodles on some of the photomats.


Here's a closer look at the side title.
















Well, I can't wait to go out the Fresh Air, take pics, and then tape them down.  This is a great line from CTMH!

On the kit tab of my blog, you can order this line pre-cut or just buy the cutting guide.  Either way, get scrapping!

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Central Park 8 Page LOs

Hello,

Whether you are a mother, daughter, caretaker or aunt-- Happy Mother's Day!

Every year, my husband and daughters ask what I want for Mother's Day.  Besides chocolate and flowers, I love to have the afternoon to myself to craft:)

This afternoon, I was able to complete my Central Park LO kit.  I designed 8 pages.  The colors are so vibrant and will go perfect with summer, birthdays or just hanging out.




































Here's a close up:
For the first LO, I splatter some CTMH blue water colored paint.  I then cut out some images using CTMH's "You are Here" Cricut cartridge.
 For the second LO, I did some fuzzy cutting to make the color pennants.  The pennants were from the PML sheet.  Next, I cut some random circles.  I splatter some blue CTMH water colors on this LO as well.  And to make things pop, I used 1/2 inch of CTMH's Silver Foil paper.  I just adds a little interest.

 I was inspired by the Seasonal Expressions 2 book for this next LO.  I added a 4x4 flip flap so that I could add more pictures and journalling.


For the last LO, I was inspired by a sketch I saw on Pinterest.  I did some more fuzzy cutting on the pennants.

Well, I'm happy with the LOs.  I want to spend a day in NYC's Central Park or one of Boston's parks and fly a kite or just people watch!  Very inspiring colors.

This kit will be available starting on June 1st.  You can either purchase the entire kit pre-cut or buy the cutting guide.  If you spend $25 on my website, then I will email you the directions for free.

Please see kit tab to order yours today!

CTMH-- Gimme Some Sugar LO

Hi everyone!

CTMH has a new seasonal catalog coming out on May 1st.  I can't wait to show you all the good stuff!  I've been busy:)

Today, I'm going to show you some LOs from CTMH's Gimme Sugar paper line.  This line is only available until April 30, so if you haven't purchased this line, then get to it!

For my workshops, I normally create my own.  For this line, I used a file from a fellow CTMH consultant Kelly Fitzgerald Baxter.  Her work is absolutely amazing.  Below are tree 2-page LOs.



































Here's a closer look at the LOs:
This is my fav!  Love the doily circles.

The second LO is super cute too!  I love the apron.  All these cuts were using the CTMH Cricut cartridges

Here's the third LO:

Well, I hope this has inspired you to get the Gimme Some Sugar line before it is no longer available!

Thanks for stopping by,
Maureen

PhotoPlay Paprika LO #2

Hi, I'm back again with another LO using PhotoPlay's Paprika line.  As I mentioned, my oldest daughter is sort of a hippy chick!  So, this paper kit is coming in handy!


For the LO, I used a sketch from Pinterest. I also used a bunch of CTMH products-- starting with inking all of the paper edges in Dessert Sand. Next, I used a 5X7 flip flap and golden arrow.

Here's a close-up.

Ta-da-- the flip flap!























Thanks for stopping by.
