Giveaway Winner!

Hey everyone!  I am back to announce the winner of my giveaway...

Congrats to Kris Price, who left a comment on my Facebook page!

I will just need your mailing address.

Hello Lovely - Just Married

I have been spending quite a bit of time playing with all the new products in the NEW CTMH Seasonal Expressions catalog.  Pure joy!  Creativity definitely nourishes my soul and it is always very healing for me.  ;)

Here is a card using paper from the new Hello Lovely paper pack, and the gold stripe is from All About the Gold Fundamentals.  The stamps with matching dies are from the new Hello Lovely Cardmaking Thin Cuts Bundle.

I gold embossed the images, and for the flowers, I coloured them in with my inks and waterbrush.

Happy creating!  :)

With Love Valentine Card

I paired the Adore You (January SOTM) stamp set with the recently retired Season of Magic stamp to make this card.

The With Love banner was cut out of white daisy cardstock, then sponged with Raspberry ink, and I added a little extra sponging to give the ends a little darker shade for added depth.  Then stamped the sentiment in black ink.

Lastly, I added some shimmer to the heart with a Shimmer Brush. 

Happy creating!  :)

National Papercrafting Month - Welcome Home Wreath Kit!!!

I wanted to share this with you all.  Here is the wreath I made with my Welcome Home Wreath Kit, celebrating National Papercrafting Month with CTMH!

It is so pretty, and I have it hanging in my studio.

Everything in the kit is die cut so all you have to do is pop the pieces out of the sheets and adhere them together with your favourite adhesive.

The circular base is a sturdy chipboard piece, which also has a die cut woodgrain pattern piece of paper to adhere right onto it.  So easy.

If anyone is interested in doing this as a class, or just needs some helpful tips on the flowers and succulents, please feel free to contact me by email.

I will mention that to make it easier to put together, a couple of useful tools are the Z1795 Quilling Tool, and Z1204 Bone Folder.  They aren't necessary, but do help for easy assembly.  

I love the gold sticker letters that come with the kit, so you can choose whatever you wish to put on the banner to customize your wreath.

There are four ways you can get the wreath kit:

  1. Buy it for $24.25—no qualifying purchase required!
  2. Get it for free with a qualifying $60 purchase!
  3. Get it for free by hosting a party that reaches the second level of Hostess Rewards.
  4. Get it for free when you sign up to be a Consultant!

 ***This kit is only available while supplies last during the month of January.

Happy creating!  :)

2016 Christmas Layout

I thoroughly enjoyed having lots of company, and visits, and my daughters and their friend coming to stay with us for Christmas.  Good times!

On Tuesday, Lee went back to work and Cole went back to school, so I had a full day at home by myself to start the daunting task of never-ending laundry, relax a little, and create this 2 page layout, using CTMH City Sidewalks papers and Complements.  I soooo enjoy my quiet time, too!

I had a bunch of photos I wanted to use for this layout, but instead of making it too busy with a lot of pictures, I decided to add a Memory Protectors Pocket Plus page in the center, which just works as an extra smaller page to my layout.

Happy creating!  :)
