CTMH "I Heart Us"

Hello and happy February!

I'm here today to share 6 pages I created using CTMH's "I Heart Us" paper line.  The paper line is very colorful with its rainbow pattern.  The line works with both boy and girl pictures.

Here's a look at all six pages.

Taking a closer look, you'll see that added some black photo mats and scalloped edges to make this funky design.

For the second LO, I had some family pictures in mind.  So, I cut out a "Our Family" banner.

For the last LO, I used a variety of chipboard and sticker hearts.

I'll be making some pre-cut kits and offering a consultant cutting guide.  If you'd like to purchase one, please click on the Kit tab.

CTMH Feels Like Home Card Class

Hello, I'm back again.

Today I'm heart to show you about some cards I recently created.  Some of the cards use stamps that recently retired.  However, I have a few extra stamp sets as I'll be teaching this class in January at our fourth annual Winter Wonderland Overnight Crop.

For this class, I got a little help from my CTMH friends-- Becca Whitham and Liz Johnson.  Both are fabulous designers and once I saw a couple of their cards my mind was made up!

Here's a close up of the cards:
This is one of my favorite cards.  Liz Johnson of Liz Ann Designs created this and I just changed up the colors to match the Feels Like Home paper line.  Colors:  Sugarplum, Fern, New England Ivy, Sapphire, and Heather.

Here is a card using CTMH's  Thin Cut Borders.  I used the Border set to make a notebook border and a pull tab.  I then used CTMH's retired pull tab stamp set to stamp 'Open Me' and 'Happy Birthday'.

 The next card uses CTMH's Shaker and Confetti Die set.  You can purchase silver and gold sequins to put inside the shaker.  There is also a die to make your own confetti.  To match the paper line, I made some Sugarplum confetti.  I used CTMH's Stitched Hearts die set to make the small heart.
To make this card, I used CTMH's Decorative Border set again.  This set is awesome!

The last card is another one of my favs. Becca Whitham created this desgin and I love it!

Also, this is one of my favorite stamp sets and I have 3 in my inventory:)  If you missed ordering this stamp set and need it, please let me know.

I'll be teaching all 5 cards at the January Winter Wonderland Overnight Crop at the Sea Crest Hotel in Falmouth MA.  If you can't make this event, then order your pre-stamped kit now.

Thanks, Maureen

CTMH Heart Happy

Hello and happy new year!

CTMH just came out with a new line called Happy Heart and it is super cute.  So far, I created one layout and wanted to show you.

This LO is very special to me.  The LO documents a 16th birthday party that my youngest daughter attended.  Sadly, one of her friends, Chris, passed away 1 month after this party.  Chris had epilepsy and died from a seizure.  My daughter designed a sweatshirt in Chris' honor to raise money for his family. 

I never met Chris, but he will be ever in my heart as someone my daughter truly loved as a friend.

If you'd like to order Happy Heart, then please do so now.  The line is available through February 28 or while supplies last.

Thank you for stopping by today.
