New Ways to Use Embossing Folders and end of month reminders

Give this a watch, I love learning something new, don't you?!  And maybe this will be new to you!

End of April is upon us so don't forget, Apr 30th is last day to order from Seasonal Expressions 1 - most things are retiring in it; for Studio J, the program is retiring; and for the Stamp of the Month, Life in Pictures.  You can order 24/7 from my online website.

If you would like a copy of the new Seasonal Expressions 2, that will be live on May 1st, let me know.

Have a great day!

Sympathy Card

This year has been just awful for people passing away ... I love this set C1524 Words of Comfort (retired), for this type of card, card was inspired from Pinterest (will link when I find it again) ... I used Desert Sand ink, the Corner Rounder punch, the Art Philosophy cartridge and Design Space for the label, misc black bling from Michaels and the Stylized Flower embossing folder from Provocraft.  Also used a white gel pen to colour in the flowers which were stamped in Desert Sand.

Have a thoughtful day and hug the ones you love!

Watercolouring Fun with My Anchor

Playing around with some watercolouring for the background using our wonderful watercolours and brushes.  I also used My Anchor and the My Anchor Thin Cuts (retiring Apr 30th), Pacifica ink, Saffron ink, 3D foam tape. Sentiment is from Teacher Appreciation D1612 (retiring July 31st).  This is a 4x4" card, using White Daisy cardstock.

Have a fun day!

Regatta I Just Love Card

Loved this card when I saw it so of course had to make it ... it is part of the Regatta Workshop Your Way, using the Regatta paper, My Anchor stamp set and My Anchor Thin Cuts ... all set to retire this month  :(  I love this set and papers and am sorry to see them go.

I also used mini-glue dots to attach the White/Gold Ribbon and 3D foam tape to attach the large heart to the card.  Inks used:  Pomegranate, Flaxen and Sapphire. All CTMH except for the red paper.

I can see using this layout with other papers and stamp sets in the future!

Have a great day!

Out of All the Mom's in the World ...

The beginnings of a project ... using Memento Black Ink, Ruby ink, Honey ink, Liquid Glass, B1509 My Mother (retiring Apr 30th) ... haven't worked out the final use yet but I love how this is turning out!  I also used our wonderful Daubers to apply the colour to the flowers.

Have a wonderful day!

Beloved Bouquet Happy Birthday

I used the January Stamp of the Month, Beloved Bouquet (retired) for this card.

The 'Happy Birthday' is from the May Stamp of the Month Celebrate with Cake so you are getting a tiny sneak peek!

I used various reds and greens and forgot to write them down ... I did just put away Topiary and Pear, Ruby, Pomegranate and Pixie so I strongly suspect that's what I used.  I propped up a couple of the flowers with 3D Foam tape.

Hope you managed to snag this set when it was available!

Have a wonderful day!

Another Stamp of the Month project, CASED from here.

Used our watercolour paints and brushes, Clear Embossing Powder and Versamark ink and Memento Black ink.  The bling is Blue Dots Enamel & Glitter Duos (Z3122).  The sentiment and camera are propped up using 3D Foam tape.  We do have watercolour paper but I was too lazy to dig it out so just used our White Daisy cardstock which works just fine.

Turned out pretty cute I think!

Have a lovely day!

April Stamp of the Month - Life in Pictures

Ok I Love Love Love this layout, using the April SOTM so I had to CASE it - I will add picture(s) to it later - haven't decided if I'll add small pictures yet but in the meantime, this will work for one 4x6 photo.  As many of you know, I'm not a huge scrap booker but this came together so quickly!  If I can do it, anyone can!  LOL!

If you want this amazing stamp set, don't forget it's only available until Apr 30th so don't miss out.  I can see that I'm gonna have some fun with this set! I also used Memento Black ink, 3D foam tape, Artiste cartridge (Design Space), White Daisy Cardstock.

Have an amazing day!

New Month Already! Happy April!

Hopefully you all are getting the same kind of weather we are at the moment - it's fantastic!

Here is our new Stamp of the Month and I can't wait to get stamping with it!

Also, if you have been thinking about maybe becoming a Consultant, CTMH is offering a great special this month, Baby I'm Worth It, check it out!

One of the perks of becoming a Consultant is that you get a sneak peek of the upcoming catalogues and I gotta tell ya, you're gonna love it!  You can see it live May 1st.  If you'd like a paper copy, get in touch with me and I'll hook you up later this month.  Or if you place an order once it goes live, I believe you will get a paper copy included with your order.  But if you can't wait, you know where to find me :)

Off to enjoy some sunshine!

Have a great day!
