CHMH Spingtime Compliments + Whimsy

Hi, just getting caught up on posting!

I was lucky to visit Germany 1.5 years ago.  While in Germany, we took a day trip to Salzberg Austria.  After a quick walk from the train station, we entered a lovely garden.  Salzberg is a special place for a number of reasons-- one being it is the home to the Sound of Music!

Without further adu, here a few of 'my favorite' pictures from that beautiful garden.

I wanted to spice up this LO, but use soft colors.  CTMH's Whimsy paper line worked well here.  It coordinates beautifully with the Springtime Compliments.  I cut out 2 flowers using Flower Market.

To make the LO as wow as the pics, subtlety, I cut out lots of diamond shapes.  I then taped them down in a quilt-like fashion.  I just love how it came out!

 Here is the second page.  I continued on with the diamond shapes, but just put them in the corner. 

By using twine, I mirrored the path of these 2 cute butterflies.

Above is a photo of the 2-page LO.  I'm happy that the LO came out so well!

The Springtime Compliments are only available through April 30th. The Whimsy papers will retire at the end of July. Be sure to stock up now!

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

CTMH Some Kinda Wonderful

Hi, we have a snow day here in the Boston area:)  We were in shorts a few weeks back and now we are back to shoveling!  Oh my.

Ever print pictures off your kid's phones or your own and be luck-- okay, that's nice.  The pictures consist of selfies and odd poses.  This is the new kind of life for our young ones and do I have the paper that will help document those memories!  The paper is called Some Kinda Wonderful.  And, as the paper implies, it takes those odd poses and wonderful smiles and makes it all work.

Okay, take a look at this picture.  It's of my oldest daughter sticking out her blue tongue!  (How lovely!)  By making a geometrical type LO and stamping some circles and ink blots, it all ties in with the Some Kinda Wonderful paper, stickers, and glitter shapes.

Here is a close up.  I stamped the ink spot in Whisper and the circle in Black.

Below is another LO using the same paper line.  Here I mainly used the paper and stickers.  I love the rich colors!
 I should have put a ? after the Best Friends.  Check out the poses!  They must have been joking around.  I'll have to ask my daughter!
I inked the stickers in Whisper ink and popped up the camera.  This just adds a little something:)

Well, thanks for stopping by.  If you like these products, then contact me or visit my store.  The paper line will only be available until April 30th.

CTMH March SOTM-- Tea-rrific


If you follow my blog by email, then I apologize for the blank SOTM blog post you received this month.  I was supposed to participate in the monthly blog hop, but had a conflict last minute.  So sorry!

I'm now ready to showcase the SOTM. 

Being 100% Irish, we grew up drinking lot's of tea!  Even as a child, we drank tea.  I have to admit that I got a little burnt out of tea, but my parents never did.  They would drink 8-10 cups per day! 

As you can imagine, the Tea-rrific SOTM set with 11 images is very special to me.  Here's one cards that I plan on giving my mom.

Here is a picture of the stamp set:

Spend $50 on CTMH products in March and you can earn this stamp for only $5.00.  Please contact me to learn how.
