Thank You, Thank You

We got this great card kit, created with the
at the CTMH convention.
I used the "bones" of the kit and added some additional stamped panels
to create customer thank you notes.
I just love the animals in the 
Aren't those critters adorable?

This is one set that will stay in my collection for a long time.

Scrappy Saturday

Got school photos?
You need 
Several years ago I decided to empty those envelopes of school pics that just sat in my cabinet and scrap them all into a smaller album. 
Well, volume two and I am up to date with this year.
This kit of complements paired with the 
makes scrapping quick and easy
I actually used the Adventure Fundamentals because the 
Lagoon color matched my sweater better.
I love how CTMH products can mix and match so seamlessly.
Here's a look at the embellishments you get in these jam-packed Complement sets.

If you are local and need help getting started on a school-themed album I would be happy to "show you how".
Have a great weekend.

Krafty Christmas

I saved my favorite SOTM sample cards for last.
I love how the stamps look stamped on Kraft,
big surprise I love that, right?  LOL
I am usually not a purple girl and especially not for Christmas but I just had to try the
new Pansy color paired with Fern after I saw them together on my
stamping off scrap sheet.
Here's the star version of the same card.
I did all the distress inking with Cashmere, my fave.
As always, the SOTM is only $5
with a $50 order.
Or you can order it on its own for $17.95.
Details on my website HERE.
Have a great weekend!
It is our Fall break so I am so thankful for that,
and I get to see DD tomorrow.  Yay!

Three Gifts

As I was editing this photo with the 3 gifts it reminded me of our Christmas tradition when the kiddos were small.
They always got just 3 gifts from Santa and we explained it was because
baby Jesus got the the three gifts from the wise men.
Gave us a reason to share the reason for the season 
and it helped keep the gift thing under control.
I kinda miss those days of doing the "Santa shopping".
While I was working with the Pansy color I thought I would give the present stamp a shot at a birthday card.
This card is inspired by the one on our websites only I used Pansy and Emerald colors.
The sentiment is a new birthday set called
and it is new to me.

Isn't it fun?
And here's a look at the SOTM.

Christmas "Magic"

I sure do like this sentiment on the Stamp of the Month,
I used the new colors
Rasbperry, Pansy, and Willow.
I am in love with Willow, the bright green color in the middle stocking.
So fresh!

Starry Noel

Here's a look at a pair of cards created with the October
Stamp of the Month
I used the new colors
Emerald, Pansy, and Raspberry.
The background was stamped with the new Sea Glass.
Did I tell you all our newly designed ink pads are available?
They are wonderful with easy open magnetic lids.
Check it out HERE.
I have been wishing for this Emerald color ever since it the Pantone color of the year a few years ago.
I love the rich jewel tones in the new Adventure Collection.
Of course the greenery was cut with the new
Happy Tuesday.

More Flower Market Fun!

Over the weekend I did some re-organizing in my craft space.
ALL my cardstocks are in one place, in rainbow order, and in easy access to my work table.
Whew, that was a job!
I found some strips and scraps of the retired Charlotte papers and challenged myself to us them up.
I fired up the Cricut and popped in the new 
(if you missed my team blog hop over the weekend you might want to scroll down to previous post and check it out).
It really is a fabulous cartridge and I love that I don't have buy flowers ever again.
I can make them with any color cardstock of the rainbow to coordinate with my project.

The wreath cuts are my fave.
It feels good to use up some of my stash!
The rest of the week I will be sharing 
Stamp of the Month cards.
Thank you for taking the time to visit!
