Well this is my first attempt at trying to make a template of my own, after seeing several this was what I came up with, a picture will go on the buttercup matting. I have to keep trying and when I get a final product I am happy with, I will try and share a template or tutorial. This one just used CTMH'S Emporium paper pack and stickease.

For this card I whipped out some older paper(Paper Garden) and I used the oh so adorable Treetops ss, as well as Garden Green and Blush Ric-rak over wide white grossgrain. The little dream sentiment is from the Geometric Thoughts ss(retired)and I rubbed alittle chalk over it. It definatley did not turn out like I was expecting but I guess that is just an opportunity for me to play more with this set.
Here is another card using the circle template from the CTMH Wishes book, I love that book and template cd. I also used Free Spirit, You're A Hoot, Treetops and Whoo Loves Ya stamp sets. The paper is from the Bella paper pack and the ribbon is hollyhock stiched. Everything was distressed in Desert Sand ink.

I just felt like making a patriotic card so that is what I did.
I used Creative Imaginations paper, the flower is from Petaloo, the little girl is from H&M Stamps a set called Celebrate the Day and was colored with Copics, the God Bless America and star stamp are from CTMH's July Word Puzzle. I also used a Label Nestability Die and everything was distressed in Desert Sand Ink. Well hopefully this is a better picture than the last one, which if you notice I deleted.

I made this adorable little purse today using a template I got from Bren Yule who got it from a SU rep's website. I think it is adorable, I made 6 matching 3x3 cards to go inside. I used CTMH'S You're A Hoot and Endless friendship stamp sets and Bella paper.

This layout is of my youngest Avery. I used Bella paper and the You're A Hoot stamp set. I also used a new Dimensional Element border and sparkles. I also noticed after I took the picture that I forgot to cut out the white on the bottom owls wing, I am off to fix that!

Here is a frame, gift bag and magnet for my mom using Simple Pleasures paper(Love it). I also did a 12 x12 layout with my grandparents wedding pictures and framed it. The magnet I made by cutting a coaster with my nestabilities and then just covering it in paper and the sentiment is from CTMH'S Just Like You stamp set.

Okay as promised from yesterday here are the cards, envelopes, and pen that go with the box. I really wish I would have had the Endless Friendship stamp set that matches this paper but I guess on Tuesday when my stamp gets here I will have an excuse to make another set. Another huge thanks to Tresa Black for her tutorial on this great box.

Tresa Black a wonderful CTMH consultant had a tutorial for this wonderful little card box on her blog www.fabulouslyartsy.blogspot.com. So I decided to make one for my step mom for Mother's Day, it will have matching cards,envelopes and pen when I am finished. Then I will repost. I don't yet have the Endless Friendship stamp that matches the Bella paper, so I improvised and randomed stamped using the Tickled Pink stamp set, I used Creme Brulee, Hollyhock, Petal, & Olive.

I wanted to make a card this afternoon for my sister in laws mother who's father just passed away. It seems like I always reach for this paper pack for sympathy cards, I also used the Treasure Life and Come Unto Me stamp sets. The Ribbon and pearls are from Michael's, and the Pretty Pin is CTMH. Flowers are stamped in Bamboo and sentiment in black.

Here is todays project, I got the instructions for the A2 card box from Splitcoast stampers last fall, and I just made the lid with a transparency instead of cardstock and wrapped the ribbon around the top to cover up the tape. I made 6 cards to go inside using Ctmh's Unforgettable paper and stickease. I left the cards blank, they are for my mother in law for mother's day.
