2/25 Customer Contest from Stamping Technique Class

I challenged my customers last night to make cards using very little. They were only allowed to use the images that we stamped from the Aspiration ss from CTMH, white daisy cardstock, and cocoa brads. I think they did great. The last card is mine, very simple for me but I like it.

Okay so here is some of the most beautiful new paper. It's Basic Grey's new Bittersweet and I think it is just phenominal. The ric rac is Rusty pickle, Croched flower-CTMH, random button, Hero Arts pearls, and this so cute sentiment which is called Rabbits Of The Round Table and is a new release. I like to think that it's me as the momma bunny with my 4 little baby bunnies.

Okay so here is my boy version of this album using Rough and Tumble Simply Snapshot Album pages from CTMH. You might remember the one I made for my daughter using More To Adore. Let me just say I am not a fan of primary colors I don't know why i just don't like them. So I am not real happy with this album but maybe they will come out with Stardust pages in the summer catty.

2/14 Happy Hoppers

Happy Valentines Day! We are staying in tonight and are having shrimp cocktail and steak with garlic butter sauce, and I made sour cream rolls this morning and mini heart shaped brownies and pink frosting for desert. Then when the kids go to bed John and I are going to watch Fireproof, it is amazing if you have not seen it you should. Well for this card I used Basic Grey Sultry paper and the image is a happy hopper. Well to start with I used textured paper, duh what was I thinking? My coloring is less than to be desired I guess that is just all the more reason to keep practicing. Have a great day and be thankful for all the LOVES in your life. I am especially thankful for my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and my amazing family and friends today and everyday.

2/11 Inspired

Okay so last night I was supposed to finish up my daughter's valentines treats but John and I got our taxes ready instead. So at 9:15 I finally made it up to my scraproom and so did not want to do her treat bags I was inspired to make a card using CTMH's February SOTM called Easter Eggs, I just love this set the eggs are beautiful and do not have to be used as just eggs. Katy Donaldson another CTMH consultant made a gorgeous card using the eggs as flower petals, so I had to try it. I used all CTMH products Priceless Love,Playful Flourishes, Easter Eggs Amore Paper pack, Love Always Journaling Spots, Chocolate Bigger Brad, Colonial White ribbon and waxy flax, Chocolate Dot ribbon, Blush Ric-Rak, Blush Buttons and Blush and Desert Sand Ink.

Toilet Paper Album

Here are the pull out tags! I have not done my journaling yet!

2/2 Toilet paper album

I found a tutorial on how to make an album out of toilet paper inserts so I thought I would try it! I took 4 holders, flattened them and just covered them with CTMH's More To Adore paper, then I distressed the edges, and used my Cropodile to punch 3 holes on the ends and tied them with matching CTMH ribbon. Then I just put on my pictures and embellished. In the ends of the tubes I put tags. Easy Peasy! This one is for my husband for Valentines day!
