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

CTMH Central Park 8 Page LOs


Whether you are a mother, daughter, caretaker or aunt-- Happy Mother's Day!

Every year, my husband and daughters ask what I want for Mother's Day.  Besides chocolate and flowers, I love to have the afternoon to myself to craft:)

This afternoon, I was able to complete my Central Park LO kit.  I designed 8 pages.  The colors are so vibrant and will go perfect with summer, birthdays or just hanging out.

Here's a close up:
For the first LO, I splatter some CTMH blue water colored paint.  I then cut out some images using CTMH's "You are Here" Cricut cartridge.
 For the second LO, I did some fuzzy cutting to make the color pennants.  The pennants were from the PML sheet.  Next, I cut some random circles.  I splatter some blue CTMH water colors on this LO as well.  And to make things pop, I used 1/2 inch of CTMH's Silver Foil paper.  I just adds a little interest.

 I was inspired by the Seasonal Expressions 2 book for this next LO.  I added a 4x4 flip flap so that I could add more pictures and journalling.

For the last LO, I was inspired by a sketch I saw on Pinterest.  I did some more fuzzy cutting on the pennants.

Well, I'm happy with the LOs.  I want to spend a day in NYC's Central Park or one of Boston's parks and fly a kite or just people watch!  Very inspiring colors.

This kit will be available starting on June 1st.  You can either purchase the entire kit pre-cut or buy the cutting guide.  If you spend $25 on my website, then I will email you the directions for free.

Please see kit tab to order yours today!
