CTMH 'Oh What Fun' Scrapbook LO's-- 6 pages


I'm back again with another kit from CTMH.  This kit was created by me using the 'Oh What Fun' paper line.  And, I had so much fun with this line!  The colors are so bright.

Here are all 6 pages:

For a closer look, here is my favorite page:

Here, I created a winter LO-- perfect for skiing, sleding, skating or just hanging out in the winter.  The colors are fine for either a boy or a girl.

Because you most likely have dozens of holiday pictures, here's one layout holiday style:

The Cricut images were cut out using CTMH's Season of Joy Cricut digital cartridge.  If you haven't ordered this digital cartridge, then hurry as supplies are running low:(

For the last LO, I went back to my winter theme.  I stamped and die-cut an assortment of snowflakes.

The 'Oh What Fun' Scrapbook pre-cut kit and/or instructions and Cricut files will be ready to ship next week.  Be sure to get your kit in time for winter time memories.

CTMH Hello Pumpkin Deluxe Scrapbooking Kit


I'm home today recovering from a migraine:(  I've been busy creating all sorts of pages.  Today, I'll show you 4 scrapbook LO's using CTMH's Hello Pumpkin Scrapbook kit.

Here CTMH mixed two lines together-- Hello Pumpkin and Boutique.  Hello Pumpkin is Halloween/Orange style, but when paired with Boutique, it's something quite different!

Here's a closer look at each page:
The first one is my favorite-- I just love how the page is folded down.  Of course, I had to add my own twist to the kit by stapling down the folds, adding a title, extra pictures, a tag and a bow.  I find that when I add my own pictures to a kit, I kind of just go with it.

Okay, I said this kit was different and this LO will show you how different:
This LO has a funky, boy/skate-board feel.  To make it my own, I stamped some paint splatters in Pewter Gray.  I also broke out my scrapbook stamp stash and added a 'Reel Life', 'Love your Face', '#FRIENDS', and EPIC sentiments/sayings.  Again, I just sort of went with the pictures. And man, were these pictures odd!  The pictures were of my daughter at a party holding a pet snake!  Instead of holding the snake, I'd be standing on a table screaming.  I hate snakes:)

CTMH also designed 2 more single pages.  Here's a look below.

Well, this kit is only available through 12/31/18 or as supplies last. Be sure to get yours before they sell out.

CTMH Tis the Season 8 page LO

Hi and happy Thanksgiving weekend!

With Thanksgiving comes Christmas.  And, I've been busy creating some LOs to help you document this wonderful holiday using CTMH's 'Tis the Season' paper line.

I had so much fun working with all the rich reds, greens and grays.  To make it pop more, I added some Gold glitter paper for trim and ornaments.

I'm not sure what LO I like the best-- I like them all!

I'll be teaching this class at our fourth annual Winter Wonderland, which will take place on January 17-20 in Falmouth Ma.  Kits will also be available.

CTMH Grateful Heart Fall Layouts


I'm back again today with another project using CTMH's Fall line-- Grateful Heart.

When I saw this paper, my first thought was patches.  The colors are just vibrant and beautiful.  With the patch-work in mind, below are the 3 LOs I created:

Here is a closer view of the LOs:

To create the little scribbled circles, I used CTMH's new stamp:'Tis the Season' Scrapbook stamp set.

I'm really enjoying the Grateful Heart paper line. I can't wait to go out and take some Fall pictures! I will be offering this LO class at our overnight scrapbook crop in Dedham MA on November 2nd. If you can't make this class, then order your kit. Pre-cut kits will be shipped on Friday, Oct 5th. Thanks for stopping by, Maureen

Hello,  I hope you enjoying this beautiful fall day!  Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I love the cooler weather and colorful leaves.

The cards were created using a variety of stamps. Here's a closer look at the cards:

Memories in the Making-- 24 Layouts


this past Saturday, I completed 24 scrapbook layouts!  I did this by using CTMH's "Memories in the Making" Calendar kit.  The calendar kit is only available through September 31st or as supplies last.  The kit can by used to make a calendar, layouts or both.

I chose to create the LOs and doubled the LOs to 24 pages by using a guide prepared by a fellow talented CTMH consultant, Laurie Levorson.

Here are the 24 pages.  I can't wait to fill them with pictures!

 To make the pages, the guide used the calendar components and additional paper, cricut cuts, card-stock and bling.

Because CTMH's colors all coordinate, the pages all work.

I'll be offering this kit as a workshop in September and October.  I only have enough supplies for 7 kits. So, if you'd like a kit please let me know as soon as possible.

Please see kit tab for ordering.

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Boutique Layouts

Hi, happy Labor Day weekend!

It's September 1st and CTMH just launched their new catalog-- yay!  As consultants we can order from the new catalog 1 month in advance.  So, I'm been crafting away with all the new goodies:)

Below is an 8 page Layout using the Boutique Workshop Your Way (WYW).  And, I did exactly what the name inferred and did it my way!

I had so much fun with this paper line.  For fun, I added a splash of Saffron Yellow.

Here's a closer look at the layouts.

For the first LO, I was inspired by a fellow CTMH Consultant Kelly Fitzgerald.  Her work is amazing!  She used these circled doilies on a Gimme Sugar LO and I loved it.

 Notice the stitching??  I stamped it using CTMH's new stamp called

Notice the little kick of color.

Again, stamped the stitching.  Gotta love the CTMH Flower Market cartridge! 

If you love these LOs, then please click on the kit tab at the top of page.  You can purchase cutting guide and cricut design space file for only $10 or get it free if you purchase $25 in products.

If you don't feel like cutting, then I can do the work for you!

CTMH Central Park Cards

Hello! I just returned from a 2 week trip to China. Thankfully, I have a few days to recover from the jet-lag before returning to work:) So, I spent some time in my craft room creating cards using the CTMH Central Park paper line.

The Central Park line is very festive with bright colors-- perfect for Happy Birthday cards!  I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment inside some of the cards.  All can be used for celebrating those special days.

Here's a closer look at the cards:
This card was created using the Central Park Scrapbooking stamp.  We made this card at a Seasonal 2 launch get together.  I just switched up the papers and recreated it.
For the second card, I used the Making Waves Card-making Stamp/Thin Cut set. This cute stamp set was featured in the Seasonal 1 catalog, which has been discontinued:( However, the stamp/die set is still currently available. So, be sure to pick this one up!

The 3 card was created using a Happy Birthday Die set from CTMH.  The Happy was stamped from the Central Park Card-making Stamp.

For the 5th card, I used an older SOTM.  This cute SOTM is no longer available, but I was able to purchase 7 of them-- so I have plenty if you missed on t
his awesome stamp!

For the 6th card, I used CTMH's Central Park Stamp/Die set. Living close to Boston, I just love these cute buildings. I can envision using this set for Christmas cards too!

For the last card, I used the Thin Cut set from the Seasonal 2 catalog. I also used this die last month and I can't get enough of it!

If you'd like to order a set of these cards pre-cut/stamped, then please see the Kit tab on top of page. Also, if you would like to recreate these cards, be sure to order the stamp sets while they are still available. For the discontinued stamps, please email me if interested.

CTMH Fresh Air Cards

Hi, I've been busy this weekend!

Using the remaining paper from the Fresh Air paper pack, I created 7 cards. And, as my other post said, I still have remaining paper and embellishments!

Here's a look at the cards up close:
 This is my favorite.  The stamp set is the June Stamp of the Month.  So, if you spend $50 in products, this stamp is only $5!
The second card was made using CTMH's thin cut (die) set called.  Just put this in your BigShot or Cuttlebug and boom, you are done!
The next card is a simple Thank You card-- perfect for a man or woman.

 Another Thank You card.
Birthday Card.
You can stamp a sentiment inside the card, either Happy Birthday, Thank you or Happy Father's Day.  You decide:)

This is another one of my favs!  And, it was easy:)  Used another one of CTMH's Die Set.  Die Cut this in Vellum because I want to see the trees behind sentiments.

I'll be teaching this card class on June 30th at my home.  If you can't attend and would like the kit, please click here.

CTMH Fresh Air LO

Hi and Happy Memorial Day weekend!

I just love CTMH's new line called 'Fresh Air'.  Living in New England, this line will come in handy, whether it be travelling to New Hampshire, Vermont or Maine.

Using the Fresh Air Workshop Your Way (WYW) and some cardstock, I was able to create 6 scrapbook Layouts (LO's) and 6 cards and I still have paper and embellishments left!

Below is a look at the 6 scrapbook LO's.

Taking a closer look at the first LO, I cut out the circled arrow using CTMH's Artistry Cricut Cartridge. And, continued the arrowed theme by cutting 2 more arrow shapes in a Glacier (Light Blue).

I used the NE Ivy Green ribbon to embellish the photomats.  I taped the ribbon to the back of mat, so this makes it easy to slip the pictures in.  I also added some Gold Foil strips.  If you haven't used CTMH's Gold and Silver Foil paper, then you are missing out!

For the second LO, my inspirations was a LO created by Dana Kessler years ago. Again, I used the CTMH Artisry Cricut cartridge. This time I cut out a shield and then using the CTMH "You Are Here" Cricut Cartridge, I cut out the title-- Wild at Heart.  Then I embellished it with the stickers and copper foil pieces.

You many also notice some paint splatters.  I did that first and then stamped some thread pieces.  The thread stamp was not CTMH, but I could have used CTMH's Ink Blot.  Sometimes I like to fill in the blank space.

For the 3rd LO, I did a more traditional LO and layered the paper on top of each other.  I also cut out some wood pieces and used the Compliments/Stickers for the titles.  I then doodles on some of the photomats.

Here's a closer look at the side title.

Well, I can't wait to go out the Fresh Air, take pics, and then tape them down.  This is a great line from CTMH!

On the kit tab of my blog, you can order this line pre-cut or just buy the cutting guide.  Either way, get scrapping!

Thanks, Maureen
