Planners Gonna Plan.....coming soon!

I am so excited to announce CTMH's new planner, coming soon. Paper planners are once again a must have and CTMH has out done themselves with this new planner system.  Check out the details below. 

It all starts with the Everyday Life album ($10.95 USD/$13.25 CAD), a beautiful, black three-ring album with gold foil design that measures 9 3/8” x 8 ¼”. This album size makes the album multi-purpose, allowing you to decide what you put in it. To fill up your album, the Everyday Life line will also include:
  • The Everyday Life 2016 planner pages ($15.95 USD/$18.95 CAD): 154 planner pages, 12 monthly dividers with tabs, a pocket folder page, a designed page finder, and four sheets of stickers. With monthly and weekly spreads and printed dates, these pages have all the features you need to stay organized—and look good doing it!
  • Everyday Life Perfect Plan roller stamp ($8.95 USD/$10.50 CAD): This fun and functional roller stamp coordinates perfectly with the label stickers, enabling you to customize your planner even further.
  • My Crush® Everyday Life pages ($7.95 USD/$9.50 CAD): A set of 60 double-sided, gorgeous My Crush pages. These pages can be used on their own to create a beautiful My Crush book, or they can be combined with the planner pages to give you more room in your planner for preserving your memories while giving your planner even more flair.
  • Everyday Life Washi Tape ($3.95 USD/$4.50 CAD): because every My Crush book needs a good washi for attaching photos and other memorabilia to your pages.
  • Memory Protectors ($6.95 USD/$7.95 CAD): we’re introducing two new styles of pocket memory protectors sized to fit into the Everyday Life album. One will have two 4” x 6” pockets, the other four 4” x 3” pockets. Use these to add your favorite Picture My Life™ cards and photos into the mix!
Altogether, the Everyday Life line gives you ultimate flexibility in creating a planner/My Crush book/pocket album uniquely customized to you. 

I will post and send out a notice to all once these are available for order, which should be in the next couple of weeks!

Cricut-CMTH layout using Blossom Paper

This is one of the layouts we did at my last workshop. We all have those songs that hold special meanings to us.  You know the ones that the minute you hear them you're flooded with memories, and they usually bring a smile on your face or a few tears.  Those are the Soundtracks of our Lives.

I intended this layout to not have pictures, but to have the Titles and lyrics and a brief 'why' this song was important to you.  What are the Soundtracks of your life????  

We used the Blossom Paper Pack and for this layout I made the embellishments using my Cricut Explore and Design Space.  The music notes are from the Hanna Montana cartridge.  This was one I bought in digital because I liked the font, but the notes were perfect for this.  The record was part of my subscription, I'm not sure which cartridge it's from.  I changed the color to match my paper and them added the words. Once done I did a print then cut.
