Stick It Down-- 2-page Layout-- January 2023

Hello and happy new year!

So happy to start this year with a great sketch from Stick It Down.

On Christmas Eve, we each picked an ornament that was special to us.  I chose to document this memory using Keep It Simple Scrapbooking (KISS)'s Scandinavian Christmas.  This line is so cute with Gnomes and Santa!

To make this LO stand out, I used Mintay's Santa and Ornament Chippies and decorated using Gina K's gold Glitter Gel.  It was a little messy, but loved the effect!

Please be sure to check out all of the creations this month.  

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

Fancy Pants-- Memory Lane Scrapbook Layout

Hi it's Maureen here. I'm still procrastinating decorating for Christmas! So, what to do??? Scrapbook last Thanksgiving. Makes sense to me:)

To document Thanksgiving, I used Fancy Pant's 'Down Memory Lane' paper and ephemera. Love it! I paired with some Mintay Chippies-- of course. I sprayed the Cheers Mintay Chippie with Dina Wakely's blue Marina spray. Love it. Added some stenciling for the blank spot.

Love it, now maybe onto Christmas??

Stick It Down 2 page Sketch-- December

Hi everyone,

I can't believe it's December-- yikes!  I have lots of Christmas shopping to do.  But, first I want to share the Stick It Down 2 page sketch for December.

CTMH has new line of paper called Seas & Greetings.  One side is for a holiday in the tropics and the other is for cold, winter weather.  With this paper and sketch in mind, my first thought was a snow globe!  I don't know about you, but when I see a snow globe, I instantly pick it up and shake it.

Using a Cricut image, I cut out a 10.5 inch snow globe.  Then, I carefully lined the edges with foam tape and filled it with lots of shaker goodies!  Next, I placed acetate on top and then glued down the frame.

Here's a closer look at the shaker.  One tip with shakers is to glue down a few of the sequins and shaker stuff.  This way not all of the shaker bits will fall to the bottom.

I'll be working on a process video to show you how to make this shaker.  Please check back in.

CTMH Interactive Christmas Cards

 Hi, it's Maureen here.  Wow, we are in early November!  This means Christmas card time!

If you've been following me for a while, then you know I don't make interactive cards often.  Scoring and measuring are just not my thing.  Well, CTMH came out with some interactive card dies.  And, now I feel like a pro!

I made a Pull Tab, Slider, and a Coffee Gift Card Holder!  If that was not enough, I dry embossed and then stenciled in some ink!  I am in love.

I'll be teaching these cards at the next two events.  The first one is in Mansfield Ma on 11/12 and the second class will be on 12/3 in Norwell MA.  Please click HERE to sign up.  Cost of class is $25.

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

Stick It Down-- Two Page Sketch, Nov 2022


I'm here to share Stick It Down's two page sketch for November.  I used this sketch to document some Halloween photos.  To make the title, I used CTMH's small Shaker Foam circles and stenciled in a Web using Gray Ink.

This cute paper line is also from CTMH-- Fab-BOO-lous!  Love it.

Stick It Down-- Two Page Scrapbook Layout

Hi, I'm here to share Stick It Down's double page sketch for October!  

When I saw the fall theme of this sketch, I knew exactly what pictures I would scrap.  My daughter and one of her besties went to New Hampshire two years ago to see the foilage.  Here are some pictures of them enjoying their stay at the Mountain View Grand Resort and Spa.  

I began these pages by splattering Dina Wakely's Guilt Gloss Spray.  I then inked all the edes in CTMH's Toffee ink.  CTMH's Crisp Air paper line worked great.  

Here is the sketch.  

We hope you can play with us this month and get some pictures scrapped!
Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Pumpkin Cards

Hi everyone and happy almost Fall!

Summer ends on 9/22, but it sure feels like Fall here.  The temps are cooler and days shorter.  Time to put on a little jacket:)

To celebrate Fall, I created these two cute cards.  I used the Crisp Air Stamp/die set and the Seasonal Haul stamp/die set.  Both stamps are a must have!  The Crisp Air one is only available through 9/30/22.  Fortunately, the Seasonal Haul is available through 7/31/22. And, the Seasonal Haul stamp not only works for Fall, but also Christmas, Spring and Summer!  Love it.  

I hope these cards and stamps have inspired you.  To order these stamp, plesae visit my store:  Maureen's CTMH Store
