Typeset is a new paper line from the CTMH Fall/Winter catalog. I can't wait to use this line to document and record the first school days of 2011 for my 2 daughters! So, in the mean time, I've created these cards for my nephews and customers. Hope you like them:)

What can I say... I love paper, lots of paper!! This is the 'Seaside' line from October Afternoon. The paper came in handy while scrapbooking a day at Sailfish Marina in Palm Beach. Also, could not resist creating a card using a Pure Innocence bathing beauty.

This is one of my favorite CTMH paper lines-- Sophia. I can't tell you how many cards I made with this stamp set and paper pack. My youngest daugther's first communion gave me an opportunity to experiment with this paper pack for layouts. I was inspired by the Spring catalog and created a pleated border. I cut each piece by 3 inches and scored .5 inches, then 1 inch etc. It took one piece of paper to create the pleated boarder. Also, I used CTMH 'Irresitables' letters and inked them to match using 'Sweet Leaf' ink.

Held a class in June to make this book and had to have a follow-up class in July in order to finish it. In the words of Dora the Explorer-- WE DID IT, WE DID IT!!! We finished the book!
One of my customers gave this book to her best friend as a b-day present. I had to wait until she gave it to her before posting!! Kara, we hope you liked your gift! Thanks, Maureen

CTMH used to publish 3 catalogs per year and recently went down to 2. Although this was a bit of a disappointment, it was worth the wait. In this new catalog, CTMH lowered the cost of stamps by ~ $4.00 and paper packs by ~ $2.00. They also made the B&T (Background & Texture) paper more thicker. The biggest surprise was adding a Cricut cartridge!! Being a Cricut user, I was thrilled about this. CTMH also has coordinating stamps for the Cricut. So, you can have the Cricut cut the image out, pick the ink that you want, stamp it, and add a sentiment if you want. Also, included in the cartridge are many 3D shapes-- rolled roses, a take-out box and a pillow box, for example. Well, as you can tell, I am absolutely thrilled!!
