Swan Lake LO #2


I'm back to share the second LO that I created using CTMH's Swan Lake paper line.  If you recall, I used the paper line to document a trip to VT with my daughters.  I used the paper line again to document a day-trip to Boston's Public Garden.  Boston's Public Garden is home to the famous Swan Boats!  Growing up in Boston, the Swan Boats were something we visited each spring.  I thought each city had its own fleet of these beautiful boats.  It wasn't until I was older that I realized swan boats were unique to Boston.

The first LO was inspired from the Holiday Expressions Catalog.  I just took the 1 page design and made it 2 pages.  Easy peasy!

Next, I used a vertical 4X6 memory protector and added more pictures.  I used some overlays to embellish the pics.

Here are some close ups of the pages:
For the title I used the "Marker" alphabet stamp set on page 73 of the Annual Expressions catalog.

For journaling, I backed Abby's pictures with Foam Tape and slipped in a Picture My Life (PML) Tabbed Journal Card.  These Journal Cards are great!  They can be found on page 34 of the catalog.

Here is the first LO I created from Swan Lake.

You can see I got a totally different feel. That is what makes CTMH so unique-- the papers not only coordinate, but they are multi-functional.

Thanks for stopping by. If you'd like to order some of these wonderful supplies, please visit my store or let me know.

Thanks, Maureen

Jeepers Creepers Two 2-page Halloween Layouts


Hello, it will soon be October and you know what that means.... Halloween!

I created these 2 Layouts last weekend and will be teaching them at our next crop on October 22nd in Norwell.  If you can't attend the crop or don't live in the area, then the pre-cut LO's can be shipped or delivered.  Please see the "Kits" tab at the top of this page.  The cost of this kit is only $22.

The $22 also includes one horizontal 4X6 Memory Protector.  CTMH released this new product in August and I just love them.  It's a great way to add even more pictures!


This Memory Protector can go between either of the pages above. I plan to put in additional 4X6 pictures.  The new CTMH paper lines include these 'Project Life' like cards that can be used in the protector sheets.  The sheets also have a 3X4 size.  Please see page 12 of the Annual Catalog.

Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

CTMH Holiday Expression Blog Hop


Welcome to the CTMH Holiday Expression Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Brenda's Blog, then you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along away, please click HERE.

When CTMH unveiled the Holiday Expression book at the Convention, I lost it!  I loved all 4 paper lines.  I chose to work with "Swan Lake" first.  It definitely has a Fall look, but as you will see in my post tomorrow, it can be used for other occasions. 

After dropping off my oldest daughter off to college in Vermont, my youngest and I stumbled upon this beautiful farm.  The farm was covered in picture perfect sunflowers.  They also had tractor and an old red truck-- both of which made perfect pictures!

Here is page 1,  I cut out the title, wreath and sunflowers using the new CTMH Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.  This is another must have cartridge:)

A closer look at page 2. 

I  hope you enjoyed this LO.  Please be sure to visit all of the consultants' blogs. Next up is Vicki. Here is a link to her blog: Vickie's Blog.

Thanks, Maureen

Jeepers Creepers Halloween Cards

Happy September!

We just launched our new Holiday catalog on September 1st and it is loaded with goodies!  To get ready for the holidays, here are some Halloween cards that I created from the Jeepers Creepers paper line.

For the first card, I used "Monstrous Halloween" stamp and coordinated thin cuts.  You can get both the stamp set and thin die cuts for only $26.95!  Or you can buy the stamps only for $13.95.  Great deal either way.
For the second card, I used the new "Sugar Skull" stamp set. Most of these images can be cut on the Cricut using our new Flower Market Cricut Cartridge.

I colored in the skull using my Copics markers.
The last card was created using the "Silly Spider Web" stamp set.  The sentiment was cut from the Sugar Skull stamp set.
The "Silly Spider Web" set is on page 12 of the Holiday Expressions catalog.
I hope you enjoyed these cute Halloween cards.  I'll be teaching a class on these cards on Sept. 10th at 3 pm in Norwell Ma.  If you can't attend or live out of area, please contact me for a set to be shipped to you.
Thanks, Maureen

CTMH September SOTM Blog Hop

Hi, welcome to the September SOTM blog hop.  If you've come here from Haley's Blog, then you are on the right track.  Should you get lost along the way, please click HERE.

With summer fading fast:(,  I decided it was time to make some fall cards.  And, what symbolizes fall more than pumpkins! 


For my pumpkin, I stamped it in "Goldrush" and inked the green in "Fern".  To pull out the blacks, I stamped the sentiment in Black.

I used CTMH's new Swan Lake paper pack for this card.  The line has many fall tones.  I will be working with this paper line in the weeks to come.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave a comment and be sure to visit all of the other consultants' blogs.  Next up is Vickie-- here is a link to her wonderful blog:  Vickie's Blog.
