Gifts Galore

Look at these "magical" gifts created by 
my amazing CTMH friends!
They all used the 
line of papers here.  
Do creative and adorable, just like the ladies that created them!
And I was 
"tickled pink" 
receive these gifties from another friend, referenced to our
amazing "Tickled Pink" stamp set and Thin Cuts.
Convention was soooo much fun!
Learned so much
and most of all
loved seeing my team-mates and friends!
We have the best team ever!
If you want to be a part of it...stay tuned because there is a super-duper special for signing up in July!

Always and Forever

Continuing with the watercolor theme, here is a wedding card I made using a die cut
I cut the floral image out, using our Watercolor Cardstock then I painted it.
I love the soft look of watercolors.
The sentiment is from a new-to-me stamp set
And here is a look at my convention display board.

Creativity Showcase is a fun time to meet lots of people and share your work.
There was soooo much inspiration in this room!
And we got a brand new stamp set that will be in the Holiday Seasonal Expressions.
My lips are sealed but you will be seeing lots of those images in months to come.

Scrappy Saturday?

So, in the excitement of getting ready for the CTMH convention
last week I neglected to get my Scrappy Saturday post scheduled.
I could not leave out this page which documents moving day for my DD and her wonderful boyfriend.  The "kids" moved into a lovely, renovated apartment that has an extra bedroom which JoAnna claimed for her art studio.
She will be creating all sorts of art in there and I cannot wait to see it.
I wanted to try watercolors on printed paper so that's how I created the soft colored background on this text print paper.
This was one of the pieces included on my convention display. 
The fine-line black die cut is actually a Cricut cut from the retiring
Artfully Sent cartridge.
I have one more watercolor project to share tomorrow and then, hopefully, I will have some convention photos edited and ready to share!

Just Because

This is the last card in my watercolor series that I will be sharing at the consultant
 Creativity Showcase at convention. 
I started with a black die cut from Artistry.
I sketched light outlines from the large flowers and then painted
a watercolor background.
When it dried I just adhered the die cut on the painted piece.
So much fun to play with watercolors!
Watercolors were listed on the supply list so I am excited to find out what we will do with them at convention!
Have a great weekend!

Butterfly Love

CTMH is hosting a card drive, at convention, where we can give cards that will be donated to an Orlando charity to share the love in Orlando.
I created about a half dozen of this style card.
First painting the the rainbow of colors, splattering, then
adding a white butterfly die cut.
And here is another style butterfly card.

Best Wishes

This is the simplest card in my watercolor collection.
I simply painted in the floral images on this stamp
from the
stamp set.
Since we do not have pink Shimmer Trim, I painted the white pink.
The paper background is from the Kaleidoscope collection.
Day 2 in Florida means 
Leadership Training
team meeting.
Here is the nametag I created for the "magical" theme.

stamp set has been perfect for creating for convention.

Tickled Pink Shadows

Since it is day 1 at the Disney resort, 
meeting up with my CTMH friends,
I thought I would share this card.
I created it with the Tickled Pink stamps.
First, I created a soft, watercolor sunset over the water.
Then I stamped the flamingos in black to create a silhouette.
