CTMH Timber 8 page Scrapbook Layout


I hope your summer is going well.  August will be here soon and before you know it is over:(  So, get out and make some great summer memories!

To help you document your summer memories, I have designed an 8 page scrapbook LO kit from CTMH's Timber line.  This line works perfectly with outdoors, cookouts, men/boys and adventure, etc.  It has some masculine stickers but can easily be traded out for something else.

I just love the colors of this line and can't get enough of the all the plaids!

This kit is ready to ship.  If you'd like to purchase a kit pre-cut with instructions, then please see the kit tab on the top of my blog.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Summer!

Hello, I'm back again with another project.  This time I created some cards! 

To make the cards, I used the new CTMH stamp/die set called 'Gnome Matter'.  This is such a cute set and it is already unavailable. But don't despair, CTMH will be getting this cutie back in stock!

Here's a close of the Gnomes:

You've already seen the cards with the boots and remember-- these boots are made for splashing!!

The next two cards were make with the June and July SOTM.  The July Stamp of the Month is available for $5 with a purchase of $50.  If you missed June's stamps, then I have a couple in my stash.

Here's the SOTM for July:

CTMH Brushed-- 6-page Scrapbook LO

Hi everyone!

It is hot, hot, hot outside!!  So, I am chilling inside:)

Last night, I just complete a 6 page LO using the CTMH Brushed line.  CTMH brought back this oldie, but goodie line!

The LO's I designed will work well for girls, friends, and general, along with Showers or Special Occasions.

I used the sticker sheets to make all the titles.  Do you see the one called 'A Lovely Day'?  Well, that song is on my playlist and I can't get it out of my mind!

If you'd like to order this pre-cut scrapbook kit, then please see the 'Kits' tab.  If you'd the paper to make your own LO's, then please see my store link.  The Brushed line will be available through July.

Thanks for stopping by,

CTMH "Make A Splash" Cards


I just love colorful rain boots.  When wearing them, you are like-- "okay rain, you won't wreck my day!".   Here are two cards saying just that:)  "When life gives you a puddle make a splash!"

I colored the first card in red and opted for a more traditional yellow boot for the second one.

I have two more of this now retired and sold out stamp and die set.  Please let me know if you'd like the set.

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Stitched Together Layouts

Hello and happy father's day!

It's only June 21st in the Boston area and it is already hot.  If this is a prelude to Summer, then we are in trouble!

To beat the heat, I spent the day in my craft room.  I completed a 4-page scrapbook kit using Stitched Together.  This is a new, colorful line from CTMH.

Here's a look at the layouts:

For the first LO, I grabbed my old Creative Memories cirlces and traced 3 cirlces on the left page.  I also splatted some green paint onto the page and inked everything in CTMH Toffee.

Here's a look at the first LO:
The title was actually Friendship.  I decided to go with Friends.  I can use these layouts for my daughters' friends or my own friends.

This line also comes with wooden buttons.  I simply threaded them with gray twine and glued them down.

For the second LO, I was inspired by a Bella Blvd LO that I found on Pinterest.

For this LO, I cut out some extra flowers using the Stitched Together Cricut collection.

If you'd like to order this kit or the paper collection, then either hit the 'Kits' tab or the link to my on-line store.

This kit will be shipping on May 28th.  Orders yours today!

Living the Quarantine Life

Hi everyone,

I hope you are doing okay.  I think I'm now on week 8 of working from home!  The time is flying.  Thankfully, the Boston area hit their peak in late April.  We appear to be on the downward trend.  I'm just praying that we don't get hit with another major outbreak this fall/winter.

The only advantage of the pandemic is being able to stay at home with my family.  I've basically worked my entire life.  When driving to work, I'd often dream of the days I could stay in my pj's all day and be home when my girls got home from school.  Although my girls are doing school at home, it is still nice to spend this precious time together.

To help document the pandemic, I created these two layouts using CTMH's 'Let's Stay Home' stamp set and Photoplay's 'Living the Quarantine Life'.

The paper pack comes with some journal cards that help document this experience.  My plan is to make 2 sets of this LO and have each daughter fill out the notes and select the pictures. I doubt any of us will ever forget this experience!

Here is a close of the CTMH 'Let's Stay Home' stamp set.

The stamp is available at my CTMH store .

And, if that was not enough, CTMH came out with these two new Covid stamps sets.  I just can't get enough of these!  The first one is called 'The Great Indoors'.

Here's a look at the second one-- it's called 'On Repeat'.

I'll receive the new stamps next week and I can't wait!!

Lastly, I was asked to make a few of these kits for my crafty friends. If you'd like a kit, then please let me know or see the 'Kits' tab.

Thank you for stopping by and stay healthy!

NSD Quarantine Cards-- CTMH

Hello everyone,

CTMH has a number of bundles available for National Scrapbook Day (NSD).  Although NSD has come and gone, the kits are still available.  Here is one of the kits using the Quarantine Covid stamp kits.

My favorite part of this kit is all the Toilet Paper references.  Who would ever believe that it would be so hard to find TP?  Every time I go to the grocery store, I'm on the look out for it.  Stores limit 1-2 per family.  But even with that, it is hard to find.

Here is a close up of the card kit.  I used some of the Blue Skies paper to jazz them up a bit.

Any way, I hope you are all doing well and staying healthy.  If you can, spread some cheer and send more cards.

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Aurora

Hi there,

how are you holding up?  It's week 6 for me working from home.  They are turning part of my office into a Covid-19 unit for some of our patients.  So, I'll be working from home for a while!!

During the last 2 decades, I've worked from home. It has mainly been for 1 day per week.  Doing full time was a lot harder than I thought.  I miss talking to people and my routine.  I look forward to when we'll be on the other end of this!  Please stay safe.

Anyway, I've had some extra time on my hands.  I just completed this 6 page LO kit.  It will be ready to ship out on 5/15.  Please pre-order yours!

Thank you for stopping by,
