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.....

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.

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'.
