CTMH Card-- A Bowwow Stamp and Victory Paper

Here's another new stamp by CTMH.  I absolutely love dogs and my Pinterest boards can certainly attest to that!!  For this card, I used the CTMH Victory paper pack.  The blue helped define the sky, whereas the browns and greens defined the grounds. 

To complete this project, I used a My Favorite Things (MFT) fence die-namtics.  The fence actually has some texture, so the Desert Sand ink did the trick in distressing it.  (The Crop Shop carries this die if you just need to have it.)

We'll be making this card on Sunday, 2/26.  See "Workshop" tab.  Thanks, Maureen:)

CTMH Card-- Card Word Puzzle and Pemberley Paper

Here's a card using CTMH's new stamp:  Card Word Puzzle.  The stamp not only has beautiful flowers, but also many, many sayings that you can change up and put together-- Happy Birthday, Sorry for Your Loss, Bridal Shower, Congratulations, etc. 

My favorite has to be 'Happy Belated Birthday'!  If anyone really knows me, they know that I'm always late with cards-- sorry!  I sort of grew up this way.  For instance, my birthday is in mid August and although I didn't know the exact date we'd celebrate my birthday, I knew it would be before Labor Day!  So, we sort of celebrated a birthday month vs. just one day. 

Looks like I'll be making more of these 'Belated' cards:)

All the products below are CTMH.  The ink pad was Outdoor Denim and the marker Autumn Terracotta.  The paper is CTMH's new line:  Pemberley.  If these products are calling your name, then call me:)  Lord knows, I have everything!

Winter Wonderland Crop Weekend-- 2/17-2/19/12

I had such a good time vending at The Crop Shop's Winter Wonderland weekend (2/17-2/19) at the Boston/Quincy Marriott.  I met so many new crafters-- scrapbookers and card-markers!!  Close To My Heart offers so many versatile products.  I hope you enjoy them for the years to come:)

CTMH-- Stella LO with Canvas Shapes

Hi, I can't get enough of the new Stella line!  Here is another layout (LO) using the paper pack and coordinating canvas shapes.  All items shown are CTMH with the exception of the Martha Stewart scissors used to cut the grass. 

My daughter is going to be 14 in March, so I plan on using this LO. 
Thanks, Maureen:)

CTMH-- Lucy Workshop on the Go (WOTG) Kit

Hi, sort of a bummer here in Boston with the Patriots loosing:( Good game and the Giants played much better. Well, there is always next year! 

Onto more happier things... I played around with the new line "Lucy" from CTHM. The soft, warm colors truly lifted my spirits. To do these 2 layouts, I used the Lucy Workshop On The Go kit for $29.95. The Lucy Kit includes a C sized stamp, paper, Bitty Bling, glittery rub-ons and instructions.

To make it complete, I just added some other new CTMH products: twine and sparkled flourishes. I also put a flip flap in there-- love them:)

Tell me what you think.  So far, it's thumbs up from Leslie, Julie B, Sheila and Lisa!
Thanks, Maureen
