CTMH WOTG Layout#3

Here is the last layout we did this month using the Clementine Workshop on the GO.  Normally I don't put pictures on the samples, but due to the way this layout is lined up I needed to use 4x6 and 5x7 placeholders.

Sunday, November 25, 2012

CTMH WOTG Layout#2

Here is the second layout we made at workshop this month using the Clementine Workshop on the Go. The pinwheel/rosette is made with our Artiste Cricut Cartridge.

CTMH WOTG Layout #1

The Workshop girlies chose Clementine for this month's workshop. Clementine features soft fall colors which are great for not only fall but summer, county fairs, cowgirls, just about anything with a soft country flavor. This first layout was simple as I wanted to focus on the pictures and the beautiful Cottage Assortment which is multi-layer button embellishment. The Cottage Assortment comes in the Workshop on the Go (WOTG)

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! I will post Layout #2 in a couple of days.

Trying some new techniques

I had to make a card last night for a Boy Scout party I'll be attending tonight. I wanted to try something new.  I used some Time Holtz distress stain, stencils and used glue to stamp an image on the star, then rubbed with micro fine glitter. It's hard to see all the detail on the star in the picture but it looks great in person.  This is definitely a technique I will be trying again soon, next time in a cool color.

Birthday Card

Here is another card made with the triple stamp technique.  This one was for my daughter-in-law who just loves sunflowers. The stamp I used was one of the CTMH past stamp of the month's The sunflower stamp is actually an outline stamp which I colored in with our new Alcohol Markers.

The great thing about this stamp is that all the non word stamps have matching cuts from the Artiste Cartridge. How crafty would it be to make your own gift tags? Stamp them with our new Pigment Ink and embossing powder to make them extra fabulous.
All cuts are made with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge

Birthday Card

OK so right off let me say sorry for this picture being cut off at the bottom, lol, so much for my iPhone picture skills! Sadly it was the only picture that came out clear...I know I'm bad. I wanted to share with you all this cool Triple Stamp Effect and CTMH's new color, Ruby,  which I love. Ruby is a cool red with the slight blue cast, hence the 'cool' tone.  I made this card for my wonderful friend Jan for her recent birthday (Happy Birthday Jan!).

I will be teaching this technique at our Cricut/Christmas card making day next month to those interested. It's very easy, but looks hard to make...the kind I like. I used the new Love Blooms Stamp Set C1511. This stamp set is the newest base and shade type of set. Here I only used the base stamp, oh and I added a hint of Stickles to the center of each flower.

CTMH La Bella Vie Layout #3

This is the last layout we did at this month's workshop. The bicycle is one of the stamps included in the La Belle Vie Workshop on the Go.  The lacy butterflies were cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. They were a bit more detailed then the butterfly on the Artiste cartridge.

You have 12 more days left to get the National Stamping Month double stamp set "It's Your Day" for only $5.00 with a $35.00 purchase.  See Below.....

Sunday, September 16, 2012

CTMH La Belle Vie Layout #2

Here is the 2nd layout the workshop girlies did this month.  This one is actually the main layout found in the Workshop On The Go instruction pamphlet. I love all the stamped, layered pieces of this layout. The left side mat can accommodate a 5x7 picture with the right side having room for 2 4x6 pictures with a title above. All embellishments were cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

CTMH La Bella Vie Workshop #1

This month's workshop we used the La Belle Vie G1048, I just love the colors in this pack. Here is one of the layouts we made.  This one was on the simpler side compared to the other two (I'll post later).  This pattern is a variation of one from the newest How to Book's....Make it From The Heart #9035.  I used our new Black Tulle Ribbon Z1798 to make the flower and attached it with a cut from the new Artiste Cricut Cartridge Z1790 and a hat type stick pin.  I normally do not add pictures to my layouts for the workshop, it keeps people from getting stuck on a certain type of picture and this way they can envision their pictures on the layout while they are making it. This layout easily fits 2 4x6 pics on each side. Remember any purchases the month over $35.00 qualifies you to get the special stamping month double stamp set "It's Your Day" for $5.00 (a $35.00 value)

CTMH Coffin Treat Box

Tonight is Workshop night and I'm making candy filled treat boxes for the Workshop Girlies.  If you have visited before you know how much I love this cute little coffin...I know, I'm sick.  I just couldn't wait to be able to use it.  The top and bottom are made with the EEK key on the new Cricut Artiste Collection Z1790 and Kraft Paper.  I used a retired stamp set Creepy Cobwebs.

If you purchase the Artiste Collection this month you will qualify to purchase the following two specials for only $5.00 each.  The Stamp of the Month "Fall Favorites" and the National Stamping Month double stamp set "It's Your Day".  You can see both these sets below.

I get to go to a crop one of my friends is having tomorrow at her house...I'm very excited as I don't get to just sit and work on my scrapbooks very often especially with good friends, so I'm looking forward to it.

Will you have some scrappy time this weekend?  If so, Happy Scrappin'.

CTMH Pemberley Layout #2

Here is the second layout the Workshop girlies did this month. On this one we used one of the stamps from the Workshop on the Go exclusive stamp set in the cluster of flowers on the bottom right side.  Workshops on the Go (WOTG) are a great buy because you not only get an entire paper pack, but 1-2 embellishment packs and an exclusive stamp set to help you build your stamp collection. Also, you get a full color brochure with cutting and assembly instructions for 2 layouts and cards. check them out here.

CTMH Pemberley WOTG

This month's workshop was made with the Pemberley Workshop on the Go.  All the ladies loved the paper once they saw all the different patterns and beautiful colors.  The large flower print was perfect to take a section and cut it out for an embellishment.  We took the butterfly and flowers, used pop dots to give dimension.  Two little pearls on the antennas and it's all ready for some glitter glue to accent. All we need now is pictures, journaling and title.

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Mojo Monday 251- July 23, 2012

CTMH Convention Swap Card

Convention is just 5 days away...Dallas here we come!  While I'm not looking forward to the hot weather, I am looking forward to so many things convention has to offer. One of the most fun is the card swap with fellow consultants. Those who want to make any number of cards and design/s they want then during free time like before general sessions, lunch time etc we trade.  This is a great way to get lots of card ideas and see how creative others are.  All levels of skill can participate, most all consultants will trade with even the most basic beginner.  Last year I think my card fell to the middle of the creative road, which is just fine with me. This year I used the Pemberley Paper Pack X7148B and My Acrylix® Stamp set Beautiful Friendship  B1400. You can't tell but the scalloped circle is raised by 3D foam squares to give dimension. Unfortunately, the camera angle gave a shadow to the bottom of the card, but you get the idea.  Remember I will be posting pictures live from convention next week from Thursday to Saturday.

CTMH Color Ready Seam Binding

Here is a new video that shows one of my favorite new products: Color Ready Seam Binding (Z1732)
This ribbon is great to use as is or to add color to coordinate with your card or layout.  I love that you can use several colors and the binding gives you the ability to blend the colors into each other. Color using a stamp pad or spritzing with color re-inker are just two of the many ways to customize this ribbon.

Studio J Convention Layout #5

Well, we have come to the end of the Studio J layouts.  If you haven't tried Studio J yourself, take the plunge. Log on and play, it's FREE. This last layout if of my family. My two sons and their families. This is another of my favorites that I did for Convention.  I love the flourishes on this one. Did you notice how they tuck behind the journaling square?  Just like when you work with real paper you can easily layer embellishments with Studio J.  Contact me if you have any questions.

Follow me here to get all the news from paper packs, new stamps and whatever else corporate has in store for us.  I will be posting daily here.  I will also be tweeting and on Facebook and  Pinterest, just click on the links.

If you follow me while I'm at Convention and leave a comment here on the blog between July 12-July 14, I will randomly pick a name when I get back to win a goodie from Convention!

Studio J Convention Layout #4

This is one of my favorites of the 5 Studio J layouts I did.  For one I love the colors, the other reason?  My grand-babies of course.  Would you believe those semi circles are actually full circles that are tucked under the big picture and the green journaling area. There is so much you can do with Studio J.

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Studio J Convention Layout #3

Here we are at Layout #3 which is all about my oldest grandson and his first Rocket Jamboree. Studio J  gives you so many paper choices, color choices and a ton of embellishments for each "Kit". There are also plenty of font choices.  Check out Studio J HERE. You can upload some pictures and play for FREE!

Friday, June 15, 2012

Studio J Convention Layout #2

Here's the second of the Studio J layouts we did for convention.  This one highlights my youngest grand-baby. Check out the cupcake wrappers on the table...they are actually candy in a tootsie roll wrapper.  Once you drop and drag the item to the layout you crop and rotate so only the twist end is showing.  Pretty awesome trick don't you think?  Stay tuned...more to come.

Studio J Convention Layout #1

I'll be going to CTMH Convention again in August.  This year Corporate has asked all of the attendees to complete 5 Studio J layouts to be given to us at convention.  They picked the layouts and paper, but let us change things up a bit to go with our pictures.  While I have worked with Studio J in the past and loved it, this is the most I have done in one time segment.

I realized when I got done that in the past I had only scratched the surface of what this wonderful program can do. You have so much creative freedom  if you only look around.  You can be brave in your choices because if you don't like something just hit the delete key.  It's so much easier than changing your mind after you glue something down then have to figure out how to carefully pry it off. lol

This first layout screamed GIRL!  I'm fortunate to have a granddaughter, so this one is all about her.  I will be posting the other layouts here over the next few days, so check back soon.

Superhero WOTG Layout #2

Here is the 2nd layout we made with the Superhero Workshop on the Go G1037, This one is for 4th of July pictures. We used the Hero Alphabet E1022 for the title.  We used the rest of the stars we painted and embossed. I don't place picture mats on the layouts anymore but rather let the ladies decide what kind of pictures Portrait or Landscape they want to use.  There is always more than enough paper and cardstock left over from the WOTG to make their mats.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Superhero WOTG Layout #1

This month's Workshop on the Go is Superhero G1037.  This WOTG is perfect for Father's Day, 4th of July, kids, or any "Super" fun event you want to remember.  The technique we used this time on 2 of the 3 layouts was heat embossing. First we took various chipboard stars from the kit and painted them with Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint Z1039.  Some were painted just the white, the others we added a few drops of  Re-inkers in Cranberry and Outdoor Denim.  After they dried we used Versamark Ink Pad, then used translucent embossing powder.  The picture does not do justice, but the stars turned out so sparkly. More to come tomorrow.

Cruisin' Layout #3

Even though the Workship Girlies travel a lot, I wanted to mix it up a bit for their final layout.  This time I slightly modified a layout that Jeanette Lynton featured on her blog a month or so ago. This layout uses the Cruisin' paper, but takes a nostalgic turn "A Walk Down Memory Lane".  Most of the attendees don't like cutting into their page protectors so I made the bracket pieces flat instead of hinged as was in the original design.  Everyone loved all three layouts and can't wait to scrap their photos.

Sunday, April 1, 2012

Cruisin' Layout #2

This second layout from this month's Workshop on the Go,  Cruisin' G1039, is the featured layout in the instruction sheet that comes with the WOTG. Again we used the bottle caps and this time we used the stamp set that is included in the WOTG.  I love the car and old time gas pump stamps in this set.
