Memory Cube for Workshop

I'm planning on offering this as a Workshop at my Open House. I had my photos printed with a pink tint so they all match the papers better. I like the way it turned out & hope people will want to make this project.

You Rock Card #2

Another shot at using the You Rock set & the Sponging with ink technique. This card looks brighter in person. I LOVE this stamp set!

Wow its been awhile

Life got in the way the last couple weeks so I haven't had time to post much. I have been making items for my 1st Open house that I booked for May 17th I'm excited about it & nervous that I won't get enough stuff made to display.

I'm gonna have to force myself to make more layouts & cards after work every night so I can show off all the new papers & stamps in the new CTMH summer Idea Book. At least it will make me play with some of my new toys so DH won't keep saying Do you ever plan on using these things? He just doesn't get how pretty the paper looks all piled in a stack uncut. :-)

Chillin' Card

I really wanted to try inking a card using Sponges. So finally I just sat down tonight & did it. I thought the Polar Bear from the CTMH Chillin' set was so cute I had to use him.

Dream Card

I am loving this new set. Aspiration by CTMH. All the stamps used on the card are from the set.
I have to get caught up on everyone's blogs. I'm going to try to look at most of them right now!

You Rock Card!

I had to get the new You Rock set as soon as it came out. Since my DH is in a band I knew I'd get lots of use out of it. One of the Band members birthday is coming up so I made this card for him.
I have been working on more pages of my Emmy so I'll post them over the weekend!

Page 5 in Emmy's Book

I really want to get this Display Album finished so I can show it at my next Gathering. I'm going to offer it as a workshop. Its just so hard to find time to Scrap with my work schedule.
This was actually a picture of Emmy in front of the Christmas Tree but I didn't want to make it a Christmas layout so I used the flowers instead. I love this picture of her she looks so pretty & sweet. You'd never guess at what a Trouble Maker she is by looking at her photos.

Furocious Kitty

I did another page in Emmy's Display Album last night. Its hard to look tough & scary when you only weigh 1 1/2 pounds! She tries to make this scary face to show us when she's mad but we just go Awwww how cute! :)

I used Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Nestibilities Label One and sanded the paper to distress.

Good Luck Card

I made this card using the new CTMH Feb Stamp of the Month. Its supposed to be Easter Eggs but I used the Eggs to make petals for flowers. The paper is the new Emporium paper.

Cupcake Card

I had to make a quick card for a co-worker. I would've liked more time to get the card the way I wanted. She loves Pink & Black so I used that color combo. Stamps are CTMH Cupcake Sprinkles.

Page 2 of Emmy's book

I loved the look on her face in this picture. You can almost read her mind saying "I'm taking a bath do you have to take a picture NOW??"

Emmy's 1st Book

Emmy adopted us on Dec 2nd from the Shelter. We went in just to look around & they let us in a room of cats in crates. The lady opened the door to a crate with 3 kittens in it & the 2 bigger ones hid in the corner & the tiny runt of the litter came running right out & climbed up DH's leg. She's been attached to him pretty much since then.

I just started this Display Album for her. The cover isn't completely done yet. I didn't want to add too much embellishment until I finish all the pages. I will add ribbons across the rings on top when its completed. It has 12 pages inside & so far I've done the 1st page on Adoption Day.
The Display Album, paper & stamps are all CTMH. Once its finished I'm going to use it for classes. I'm thinking it will take at least 4 classes to do a complete book. Or maybe do 1 Workshop where I have all the paper cut & then let them finish the book at home later.

Snowbunny Bellas Galore

I decided to make multiples when I make cards so I have some extras on hand all the time. I had to make a card for a friend so I made it in 3 different colors. I used Copics to color her in & then Liquid Applique on the fur to make it pop.

Manly Card for BIL

My BIL has been in the hospital for the past few weeks since before Christmas. I made this card for him today to cheer him up.
I used CTMH papers & the stamp set Make it Count which is one of my favorites.


I was looking through my Photobucket account & saw this card I made for a swap on SCS I love my Bellas! I used my Cuttlebug Embossing folder for the background & Nesties for the Scalloped frame. I colored her in using my Bic Markers. Now that I have my Copics I may try her again to see the difference in shading.

Basic Christmas Card Workshop

Here are some of the cards from the Basic Card Workshop I had in December. Everyone at the workshop was brand new to stamping & card making so I kept things really simple. All stamps, papers are CTMH
