CTMH Core Catalog Product Blog Hop


Welcome to the CTMH New Product Blog Hop!  If you've come here from Gina's Blog, then you are on the right path.  Should you get lost, then Melinda's Blog has a list of all the participants.

We have over 20 CTMH Makers participating in this hop.  Be sure to visit all of the makers' blogs.

For my project, I created two cards using CTMH's new Star and Heart Shaker Window Thin Cuts.  I just love the Circle Shaker Window and how it is so easy to use!  The Star and Shaker Window Thin Cuts do not disappoint.

Here's the first card using the Heart Shaker Window Thin Cut.  I used the new 'Lovely and the Gold Foil paper lines.  The sentiment was from the 'Happy Together' stamp set.  To cut the stitched heart, I used the Gold Foil solid paper and filled the Shaker with 'Loose Gold Sequins'.

Here is the second card using the Star Shaker Window.  My youngest is graduating from high school in June. I hope to make the graduation cards months in advance!  The 'Happy Together' sentiments work well here again.  To fill the shaker, I used some of my 'Julep Sequins' and cut some Sapphire Blue stars.

I hope this post has inspired you to try the new Star and Heart Shaker Window cards.  If you don't have a consultant and would like to purchase the supplies, please click here: Maureen's Store.

Next up is the talented Miss Carrie.  Thank you for stopping by, Maureen

Photoplay Heart and Home


I'm back again with another Covid LO.  This one is of the time home with our dogs.  My husband and I have been working at home since March.  My husband works in the basement and takes breaks with our dogs!  He even set up a place for the dogs to snooze!

Sometimes, I wonder what our dogs think?  Do they know we are home ALL the time?  When we do go back to work in the office, I'm sure they will be like "where are they??".

I'm glad that I have been able to document these covid memories.  Although it has been hard, its these memories and stories that we will pass down.

Here's a close up of the first page
Here's the second page:

I hope this inspires you to take some pictures and get those memories documented.

Carta Bella Fall Break Scrapbook Kits

 Hello and happy fall!

To me, Fall is best of all!  Yesterday, I raked leaves and today I went for a nice walk.  The weather was perfect-- 60-70's!  I wish October would last for 60 days:)

To help document those fall memories, I created this 4 page Scrapbook LO.  The kit is pre-cut and ready to go-- just assemble and put those pictures down!

To make this LO pop, I added some blues.  The first one has a CTMH Mint CS and the second one has a distressed Blue Wood.

Here is a closer look at some of the details:

Here's the first page of the second LO:

This kit will be shipping out later this week.  If you'd like one, then please click the 'Kit' tab at the top of the page.

Lately, I've been creating lots of scrapbook pages.  So, it was time to create a card.  And, what a perfect stamp set to get back into the groove!

For this project, I decided to make a 'center step' card.
