CTMH January SOTM Blog Hop-- Cross Stitch Wishes

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we are featuring Cross Stitch Wishes, a set of 13 stamps. If you have come here from Beth's Blog then you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

I have to admit that I'm not much of sewer, but I have a couple of good friends that are.  One of my friends makes beautiful dresses.  With that in mind, I came up with the 3 cards below. 

I hope you enjoyed my design. Please feel leave a comment or follow my blog-- I need a reason to keep blogging:) Next up is Kim. Please be sure to visit Kim's Blog and all the other consultants participating in this hop.

Thanks, Maureen

Christmas Cards-- Flourishes "Holiday Sparkle" & October Afternoon Holiday Cheer

Hi, I can't believe we are weeks away from Christmas!  With Thanksgiving being so late this year, Christmas just snuck up on us.

Below are two cards I made using Flourishes "Holiday Sparkle" stamp and October Afternoon's "Holiday Cheer" paper line.  CTMH is the number one choice of me in terms of paper and stamps.  October Afternoon is my second favorite in terms of paper.

I colored in the ornaments using Copics markers. The bow was paper pieced.    Old fashioned vintage Santa's are my favorite Christmas ornaments:)

Thanks for stopping by. I hoped you liked these cards. Thanks, Maureen:)

CTMH ProPlayer LO

Here is a LO that I did during my November weekend scrapbook get-away.  Sometimes I hear that inking and stamping on LOs slows you down.  But, during the weekend get-away I was able to complete 16 pages and add some finishing touches to a couple more!  CTMH's products are all color coordinated and the new Artbooking cartridge provides sample LO pages.  This makes things go much quicker!

I used an overlay from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge. I cut it in yellow so that it would pop. I also used the Artbooking cartridge to cut the baseball and stamped the year on it.  In 2011, my daughter's team won the championship, it was also the last year that she played. 

Stan's father, Bernie, came to Shaelin's last game.  He was cheering so loudly that the umpire asked him to quiet down several times!

Well, I hope you liked the LO!  Thanks for stopping by, Maureen:)
