More Skylark Layouts

I am back with a few more of the layouts that I tucked in the
Skylark Picture My Life album.

You can find the Picture My Life Skylark Scrapbooking Program HERE.
This is a CTMH photo of some of the pocket cards.
You get 44- 4 x 6 cards
78- 3 x 4 cards
1- 12 x 12 Designed Cover Sheet (see yesterday's post)
10 - 12 x 12 Memory Protectors (variety of designed pocket pages)
I love using these programs for gift albums or when I went to scrapbook a theme album like travel, school, etc.

Skylark Picture My Life Album

One of my favorite new CTMH products in the current book is the 
Skylark Picture My Life Scrapbooking Program.
These programs make it so quick to put together a pocket page album.
But I like to order the coordinating papers and create a few traditional 12 x 12 layouts to insert between the pocket pages.
The title page comes liek you see above, with the exception of the flowers and metal button.
I got those at Hobby Lobby as they matched so beautifully.
The reverse side of the page looks like this...
I added the Kraft monogram.

Here are a few more pages...

This page has a pocket to hold some ephemera.
I will show you a few more pages tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by.

Fundamentals Contest

Here's a little CTMH video for your viewing pleasure.  See what is so special about our
Fundamentals cardstock.  Check out the directions at the end for your chance to win a packet of this cool cardstock.  I just got my hands on the new color assortment of Fundamentals and I LOVE it.  Can't wait to show you my cards!

Tag Card

Once again, I turned to my trusty 
Artbooking Cartridge to cut this tag.
This tag is designed to be a mini-album page, however,
I change the size (be sure to hit your REAL DIAL SIZE button),
to fit whatever I need a tag for!
Speaking of tags, wouldn't it be fun to use this alphabet to create custom tags with the recipient's name on it?
Just thought of that...hmmm, I have to try it!

"Circus Alphabet" is available for only $5 with a $50 order through the end of July
It is $17.95 on its own, which is still a good deal for two alphabets and numerals.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Tonight is a big street party at our favorite pizza place and hubby and son are playing in the band together for it.
I get to sit with my favorite girl and enjoy the music.

Love Note

My heart is full of love today as my
son and daughter are both home visiting.
This will be a card for DD when she gets back to her place.
The cut is from the amazing Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

If you don't already own it, I think it is safe to say you will love it if you do get it!
I love all the layouts and individual frames and die cuts you get.
They work great in layouts but you can see how I re-sized this one to fit an A2 card perfectly.
The sentiments on my card were stamped with the
Stamp of the Month

The paper is from the Lollydoodle paper pack which will only be with us through the end of this month.

More Stamp of the Month FUN!

I am loving this playful alphabet stamp set.
Can you just imagine this card in so many colors?
Just change out the papers and colors for a different mood.
I think it could go shabby chic with Colonial White and floral, vintage-y papers.
Thank you for visiting blog friends!
Day 2 of kiddos being home.
We are hoping for good weather to float the Tippecanoe River today.

SOTM Three

Today is a good day at the bungalow.
Want to know why?
My son is flying in from NYC today!
And my daughter is driving up to spend the week at home with her brother.
Oh boy!  It is going to be great to have them both home at the same time for an entire week.
That happens so rarely anymore.
I have pre-scheduled all my posts for the week so I can just sit back and enjoy their company.
I am sure I'll take lots of photos to scrap later!
Back to the card...
I used the "Circus Alphabet" to create a patterned background on the
file folder cut using Crystal Blue ink.
I love that effect.
The sentiment stamps are from the set
"All the Details" a must have in my book.
Here is a look at the CTMH artwork featuring the Stamp of the Month
"Circus Alphabet".
That's were I got the inspiration to create an alphabet background.
This set is so much fun!
And only $5 with a $50 order.
