These colors are so rich and I think it is my favorite.
I am a "Fall" girl all the way.

Here are a few simple cards made with the 
and two different stamp sets.

And how about some teal love featuring the color

Adventure Fundamentals

Love these colors!
This week I will introduce you to the new Fundamentals.
CTMH hit a home run with the new patterns and designs on our 
Fundamental papers.
Today, I will start with the Adventure palette.
I think of them as the "juicy" colors, perfect for summer and brightening up a day.
The papers I used on the last post for the Rose Blossom layout came from this packet also.
I used the heart pattern for these thank you notes.
And each palette has a coordinating ribbon set.
CTMH makes it so easy to make beautiful things.
Happy Monday!

Quite possibly my fave CTMH stamp ever.
The papers are from the

Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Rose Blossom Blog Hop 
featuring products from the NEW Annual Inspirations 2017-18.

The hop starts at our leader,
Brenda Rose's blog Rose Blossom Legacies,
where you can find the complete blog hop list.
If you are starting here, just follow the links and hop along 
and you can end at Brenda's blog.
Either way you travel it is sure to be a fun trip!
Speaking of trips, we are featuring our the new
It is an awesome cartridge with images you can use to document your journey whether you are traveling abroad, taking a road trip or a relaxing staycation.
I used cuts to document a staycation date night.
I just love our new Basic Fundamentals which I used here.
The patterns are so easy to mix and match.

The title was created using the font on the cartridge.
It also has a shadow feature but I chose to leave it CAS this time. 

Those ticket cuts make a great border accent.
Can you just imagine how many times you can use those?
And for the drama masks I cut the top layer with our Silver Foil Paper.
It is cardstock weight and cuts like a dream in the Cricut.
Love, love, love it!
Now you really must hop on over to the 
to see what my creative friend Marg created with this amazing new cartridge.
Thanks for visiting!

Happy Birthday,
to this smart, hard-working, extremely talented young lady
who is my daughter.
I love this pic of her painting a mural in her home town of Muncie, IN.
JoAnna and her art posse took on a huge project when they were inspired to beautify the downtown area.
I am so proud of these young ladies.
You can read all about HERE if you are interested.
Hopefully I will get the rest of the photos scrapped to share so you can see the completed mural.
I totally lifted this design from a post on Paper Issues.
It was fun to use my splatter stamps and use up some tiny puffy stickers.
I also used the 
Little Dreamer-Scrapbooking Stamp Set which is still available.

Happy Birthday darling daughter!
