Greetings from San Diego!

Hello, my youngest daughter and I arrived late last night after a 6 hour flight.  Thankfully, we flew with Jet Blue.  So, I passed the time by watching 3 "Property Brothers" shows on HGTV-- I love that show!  Abby spent her time watching Nick Jr:)

Anyway... here's some Summer projects that I did a while back.  Hope to enjoy the warm 60-70 degree weather in San Diego!  I'm not sure if we are off to Lego Land or the San Diego Zoo today?  So many choices!

Thanks, Maureen

Happy Holidays!!

Hello and happy holidays!  To get into the Christmas spirit, I made some 3 Dimensional Trees.  The CTMH Artiste cartridge was used to cut the small green tree below.  Based on that, I was able to make templates for 2 larger trees.  If your kids ever tell you that they'll never use Geometry when they are older, then tell it ain't so!!  Geometry came in handy as I tried to draw angles.

Thanks for looking and have a happy and safe holiday!  Maureen

Below is a set that Penny made during one of our workshops.

CTMH-- Merry & Bright Card

Hi again, back with another card.  This one was made using CTMH's Merry & Bright stamp set and CTMH's Pear & Partridge paper.  I love this paper pack!

By using a Memory Box 'Grand Madison Window' die, I made the card look like a window of a nice dining room.  To create the valance, I cut a small piece of CTMH's Designer Ribbon Red Collection.  

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen:)

PI Christmas Caroler

Hi, the holidays are surely upon us! Below is a card that I made using My Favorite Things (MFT) Pure Innocense (PI) line. The stamp is called 'Christmas Caroler'.  I used Teresa Collins' Christmas Home paper line.

I love these stamps because they are so easy to paper piece.  For instance, I stamped the dress and boots, cut them and glued them on.  I found little sleigh bells at AC Moore today.  This just gives it a little extra.

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen
