CTMH Wanderful WOTG

Hi, I'm back with another LO using a Workshop on the Go from CTMH.  I just love these workshops because they give you everything you need to create 2- two page LOs and more.  This workshop comes with a full paper pack, a size D stamp, Washi tape, embellishments, extra cardstock and instructions.

The Wanderful line is retiring at the end of August.  I'm travelling to Germany soon, so I made sure to pick up a couple of extra packs of paper and some 'Picture My Life' (project life) cards.  You can never do too much travelling!

Okay, so the WOTG... I had some pictures from Lego Land in CA.  You got it the pictures below are not the Capitol or San Francisco Bridge-- they are Legos!  Unbelievable!!


Don't you also like the blue circle overlay-- cut this from CTMH's Artbooking cartridge.

Also used CTMH's cartridges to cut the frames and camera.

Here is a look at the second page. 

Because I had so many pictures, I used 2 flip flaps

Thanks for taking a look today.  If you want to grab this paper pack while its still available, please let me know.
Thanks, Maureen:)

CTMH Confetti Workshop on the Go

Hello, the summer is flying by!  And, my blog has been suffering:(  I'm still finding time to craft though.  Just not time to take pictures and post.  Well, I took a bunch of pictures of my work, so I'm back in business!

The layout below is from CTMH's Confetti line.  This line will be retiring at the end of August.  Please be sure to order it before it becomes unavailable.

For the LO, I used the Workshop of the Go (WOTG) kit and changed things up.  Below is the first page:

I documented and scrapped my daughter's 11th b-day.  The design of the LO was based on a sketch I found on pinterest, modified of course. 

The Confetti WOTG kit comes with the sentiment "Oh Happy Day".  I liked the stamp's versility.

Here is a close-up of the first page.  Abby has such a great smile!

For the second page I continued with the design and added to flip flaps because you can never have enough pictures!

By using flip/flaps, I was able show all the pictures of my dog licking the frosting off of party-goer's face!  I know it sounds gross!

Here's the complete 2 page LO:
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at this LO. If you are inspired and want to order your Confetti paper line before it becomes unavailable, then please let me know. Maureen:)

More Authentique Anchored Layouts

Happy 4th of July!!

As promised I'm back with my 3 remaining Anchored LO's.  These LOs features our sailing excursion onboard the Argia Schooner.  We sailed out of Mystic CT.

If you happen to be one of my 2,000+ Pinterest followers then you know I love all things lighthouses!!  Their beauty and isolation fascinate me.  I would like to visit every lighthouse on the eastern seaboard.  I know, I know...I have a long way to go!!   But, was able to see two light-houses during this trip:)  2 down, 10,000 to go:)


Okay this is sort of a plain jane page. 

I liked the paper so much that I had it serve as the focal point.  After trimming 1 inch from the height and width, I backed it on CTMH's Ruby paper.  I then simply put blue patterned paper across the middle, matted the pictures, and glued down the title.

I got the title at a local scrapbooking store in CT.

Above is a pic of the complete 2-page LO.  This LO was quick and fast.  You're probably like-- I know, it stinks.   But as I said yesterday, I felt good scrapbooking and I felt accomplished for documenting this trip.  Not everything has to be a work of art.

Okay, now onto the lighthouses.  Below is a LO of the 2 we saw-- scratch these 2 off the bucket list!!  I found the design for this LO on Pinterest. 

Love this postage stamp red backing on the stone lighthouse-- CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to the rescue!

Again, I hope this inspires you to get cracking on some scrapping! Don't wait for the perfect 3-day crop. Life happens everyday, so scrap as much as you want/can. Thanks, Maureen

Authentique 'Anchored' Layouts

Hi, it's almost the 4th of July!!  I had today off and was able to take photos of some LOs that I recently created. 

Before I share them I just wanted to ask-- do you often feel like there is no time to scrap or card-make?  I often find myself waiting for that big weekend crop when I can get 40 pages done!  The problem is that absolutely love to scrapbook.  So why not do it more and feel good more?? 

With this in mind, I carved out time over the last 2 weeks and created 5 pages!!   I was able to scrapbook my trip to Connecticut last summer.  Some of the pages are nice and 'blog-worthy' and others not so much.  But I don't care.  The point is I made time for myself and felt good!  Wow!

Here is 2 of the pages that I created.  I chose to work with Authentique's Anchored paper line.  The paper line debuted last year and living on the Boston seashore it was a must have for me.

This page captures our night at Goodspeed Theater where we saw Fiddler on the Roof. 

BTW, we had no idea we were staying feet away from an award winning theater!
Here's a close-up.  I spritzed some red ink onto the page to jazz it up. 

The Connecticut title was purchased at a local scrap store in CT.
The second day of our trip we took a little boat tour of the Thistle Islands-- looks like I have to add a "S" to the title!!

The Thistle Islands were spectacular.  Houses are built on large rocks.

I have no idea who is on that paddle board, but the dog is so stinking cute!

I hope these LOs inspire you to dust off those supplies and carve out some time for yourself. 

If you are local, we also offer monthly 8-hour crops.

Thanks for stopping by and tune in tomorrow for 3 more LOs.
