My Upcoming Card Class

I'm gonna do it again ... the Chantilly Workshop on the Go Cardmaking class - I have 5 brave souls willing to give me a try - sure hope they have fun!

Here are the cards they will be making ...

(I strayed a bit here from the original instructions on the last card and used the Art Philosophy cart, page 29, shift-Flower6, cut at 0.40)

Male Birthday Card

As stated in my intro, I like to use stamps I already have so I will not always be showing you the latest and greatest (as wonderful as they are!).  

This stamp set uses a different company's stamps for the focal image but the rest of the card uses CTMH product.

I think this would make a great male birthday card, no?

Products Used (CTMH unless otherwise indicated):
Cashmere ink, Chocolate ink, Universal Backgrounds, SU The Open Sea, Baker's Twine - Neutral Assortment, Dark Chocolate ribbon

Have a great day!

You Are ...

This is a Stamp of the Month from last year so sadly is not available anymore but I'd never used it so thought it was time for it to come out and play!  

I had my daughter in mind because she really is one of those Awesome people and she constantly amazes me with whatever she does!  When I grow up, I aspire to be just like her!  LOL!

Anyway here it is ...

CTMH Supplies Used:

Pacifica ink, April 2012 Stamp of the Month "You Are ...", unknown paper that I bought from someone's CTMH stash but I don't know which paper line it came from, and the tag was on my desk so I don't know which cart it was from but it was either Artiste or Art Philosophy.  I'd cut it for another project but didn't end up using it.  I distressed the tag using our Edge Distresser.

Have a great day!

Cricut Craft Room

This is so cool - I learned something new and I love that!!!

Let me know if you are interested in either of the Cricut Carts she is talking about (Artiste and Art Philosophy) - I love them both and love learning more and more how to use them.  There are approximately 700 images on each of the carts and I'm still discovering ways to use them!  

Have a great day!

Happy Valentine's Day

Ok, you have to know this about me ... I'm a leave it to the last minute kind of gal!  LOL!  

Here is the card I finally settled on making for my dearest hubby ... I sat down with a totally different card in my head than this but sometimes you just gotta go with the flow ... I married my best friend almost 21 years ago (anniversary is in just a couple of weeks) and I have never regretted it even for a second!  Happily I didn't leave that to the last second ;)

Hope he likes it!

I put this on the inside
CTMH Supplies Used:
Artiste:  Pg 71, Cupid (Accent1), BeMine, Heart (Accent2)
Stamps:  Whooos Your Valentine (You + me and Chevron)
Other:  White Embossing Power (though CTMH does have White Daisy Embossing Powder which I just don't have yet so couldn't use it!), Sizzix Embossing folder hearts, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder
