CTMH Card Kit

Hi, I'm back again!  This time, I'm here to share a card kit that I recently created.


The card kit has a variety of sentiments, ranging from Thank You, Birthday and Get Well Wishes.

Here is a close up of the Macron and Coffee cards.  I actually made a bunch of these cards for myself.  I know I will be sending these to friends:)


The next set of cards are to well wishes.  If you missed out on purchasing the retiring Butterfly thin cut set, then please let me know.  I have 2 left.


The last two cards are for Thank You and Birthday Wishes.


Well, those are the 6 cards that come with this kit.  If you purchase a stamp set or are one of my VIPs, then kit is only $22.  Regular cost is $27.

CTMH Boo Crew Scrapbook LO

Hi and happy October!

Fall is my favorite time of the year.  Love these cooler, sunny days and colder nights.  

Before we know it, Halloween will be here.  To help get you read to document your Halloween events, I created a 4 page scrapbook LO.


I paired this line with Canary and Green Apple.  To make it interactive, I added two shakers!  Here's a closer look at the Spooky Shaker title.

CTMH Sept/Oct Catalog New Product Blog Hop

Hello,

Welcome to the CTMH Sept/Oct Catalog Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Lauren's CTMH Crafting Blog, then you are on the right path.  Should you get lost along the way, then please see Melinda's Blog for a list of all participants.

Fall is my favorite time of year.  So, I just could not resist working with the Pumpkin Spice paper line!  Here are two layouts that I created.  


To create these layouts, I used the Pumpkin Spice paper and sticker pack, September SOTM, Papaya Shimmer Trim, and the Pumpkin Spice Wood Stickers. For the splattering effect, I used Gilt Gloss spray and the Sapphire Shimmer Brush.

I hope this post has inspired you to get ready for fall.  If you'd like to order any of these items and don't have a consultant, then please see My Store. After I complete the third LO,  I will be making this available for purchase.  Please come back and check out My Kits tab.

CTMH Core Catalog New Product Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the CTMH Core Catalog New Product Blog Hop!!  If you came here from Gina's Blog then you are on the right path. Should you get lost along the way, then please see Melinda's Blog for a list of all the participants.



The annual catalog is full of goodies!  I chose to make some cards using the new 'As You Grow' paper line.  This paper is great for both feminine and masculine cards, as one side of the paper is for girls and the other boys.



The first card uses the 'Pumpkin Treats' stamp and thin cut stamps.  My friends are crazy for all things pumpkin and coffee, so I'll get a good use of this stamp:)


The second card is a slimline card using the 'Ooh la la Macarons' stamp and thin cut stamp.  I just love Macarons, along with my daughters, so I'll use this stamp a lot!  Also, if you haven't done so already, check out all the new slimline thin cuts.  They make creating slimlines easy!



The next card uses 'Rustic Sign Sentiments' stamp and thin cut set.  Just as the name implies, this set has many sentiments-- Happy Birthday, Miss You, Love, and Get Well.  You many have noticed that I used a pop of color on all of these cards-- Wild Berry, the CTMH color of the year.


The last card uses a stamp set from the Seasonal catalog called 'Thoughtful Critters' stamp and thin cut set.  I just couldn't resist pairing this set with the As You Grow paper line.


Well, I hope this post has inspired you to create some cards.  If you do not have a consultant and would like to purchase any CTMH products, then please contract me or visit My Store.

Thank you, Maureen

CTMH Smarty Pants Scrapbook Kit

Hi everyone,

It may be back to school for some of you.  This is the first time in 20 years that I don't have a child in grade K-12 !!  It seems like yesterday that I was dropping one of my daughters off to school or at the bus stop.  My father always told me that once children start school that life goes by so quickly.  Boy, was her right!

Even though I did not take any pictures this year, I still have lots of catching up to do!  Here is a scrapbook kit that I made to help document all the Back To School stuff-- the first day, the school photos and just having fun:)


To create this kit, I used CTMH's new line called Smarty Pants.  Using my Cricut and stamps, I created some titles-- 2 Cool 4 School and Picture Perfect.  I also used the sticker sheet for the third title.

This kit is ready to ship.  If you'd like to order one, then please kit HERE.

September SOTM CTMH Blog Hop

Hello,

Welcome to the SOTM Blog Hop!  This hop is one big circle.  If you've come here from Gina's Blog, then you are on the right path!  Should you get lost along the way, the please see Melinda's Blog for a list of all participants.


The SOTM has 16 stamps.


This SOTM is perfect for cards or scrapbook layouts.  When I saw the sentiment, I knew the perfect picture to scrap!

My daughter recently joined the Army National Guard as a Reservist.  She just completed boot camp and is now onto military police training. She'll be back home in November and will begin college in January.  Here's a LO of her saying good bye to our dog, Leo.  Leo is one of our 2 family dogs, but he is very close to Abby:)


I stamped the title using Sapphire Ink and the 'for you' using Paprika Ink.  Here is a closer look:


For the design of this page, I was inspired by Paige Evans.  She did a LO way back using this leaf technique.  I changed my a bit by making the wreath bigger and using a 4x6 photo.  I also 'swashed' on some Orange Ink and splatter Blue Shimmer.

If you'd like to purchase the SOTM at a discount or for free, then please see My Store.

Please be sure to visit all of the consultant's blogs.  Next up is My Heartfelt Sentiments, please click blog HERE.

CTMH Because of the Brave Stamp Set

Hi everyone,

Many of you know that my youngest daughter Abby joined the Army National Guard Reserves.  She just completed 10 weeks of boot camp in Fort Leonard Wood, MO.  She is now onto 9 weeks of Military Police training.  In January, Abby will be starting at the University of New Hampshire, where she will study Criminology.  Her goal is to one day work for the FBI.

We are very proud of Abby.  She has a goal and is working towards it!

Thankfully, we are able to talk to Abby on Sundays.  She also writes us letters.  As a family, we have written many letters to her.  To keep her motivated and proud of her decision, I created the cards below using CTMH's 'Because of the Brave' stamp set.



To create the star burst, I used a CTMH die.  The design was inspired by a fellow CTMH Maker, Ms. Carrie.

I just love how these cards came out!  I hope they show Abby how proud we are!

If you would like to purchase this stamp/die set, then please click HERE.

Thank you for stopping by, Maureen

CTMH Christmas in July Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Lauren's CTMH Crafting, then you are on the right path.  Should you get lost along the way, then please see Melinda's Blog for a list of all participants.  



For my project, I created a 2 page layout.  I used CTMH's 'Make It From the Heart' volume 5 book for the design.  I just love these books-- they are my go to for inspiration.

For the background, I used  Blue 'Speckled Egg' ink oxides, spritzed the ink with water and then swooshed it on the page using a clear little bag.  Next, I splattered some Scarlet Shimmer ink.

I love how this page came out and can't wait to add my pictures!


Picture coming.
