CTMH Pretty In Pink Butterflies ~ February's Special

I thought I'd share the new special that starts today. Think pink this month during CTMH February's Special...Pretty in Pink! 

CTMH Pretty In Pink Butterflies

There's a handful of pink and gold items offered at a discount during the month of February. This includes multiple products featuring CTMH's Color of the Year, Bashful. There's even a bundle of Bashful items that you can buy at 30% off or receive FREE by signing up as a Consultant (ASK ME MORE ABOUT THIS) or hosting a qualifying party this month. Go HERE to see the deals!

CTMH Pretty In Pink Butterflies

This is the cute project you can make with the bundles. It would look adorable in your daughter or grand daughter's room! Or if you're a daycare provider (like me) it would look adorable in your daycare / classroom! Or how about your craft room?!

Love Letter Kits ~ January's CTMH Special is Awesome!

Sorry it's been a while since I posted on my blog...I post on Facebook and Instagram @LaurenLovesToScrap Between the holidays and my whole family being sick I just haven't been able to fit in my blog too. But I'm here today to share January's special. You are going to love these kits! If you liked the wreath kit I shared a while back...then you'll be amazed at what Close To My Heart has come up with!

Check out just how easy it is by watching this fast little video CTMH put'll love this kit once you see it!

PS. I started mine (and will post a photo as soon as I'm completely finished). I bought the letter "D" and I'm going to use the banner for it to say "Dare Greatly". I wanted a reminder in my craft room...since that is what I plan to do this year...dare greatly!

Want A Great Gift Idea For The Holidays?

I wanted to share a CTMH product that is going to retire at the end of the month. It's called "My Crush Artistic You" (Z3295). 
Beautiful Watercolor Pictures
It's watercolor pages (embossed designs on each page) to put into a planner. I am making them and putting them into frames (for the raffle for Lamplighter Community Theatre). Some have designs, but no words, those I'm going to cut in half and turn them into cards.
Embossed Watercolor Pages CTMH Great Gifts
This package of watercolor pages (10 pages in the package) would make great gifts (if put into frames or an album) or brighten up your planner. You can buy this pack, along with brushes and watercolor paint on my website. I also used a waterbrush to help wipe away the watercolor paint off the embossed words...and, an all-purpose mat so I wouldn't get the watercolor paint all over the place. Just don't wait since we only have a few more days left to get them.

Party Time Scrapbook Layout ~ Easy Kit To Put Together!

I bought the Cut Above Kit from CTMH called "Party Time" (Z3330). I changed it up a little to fit the photos I had. But I love the way it came out. There are a few pocket (Picture My Life) pages too but I didn't take photos of those (they had photos of the daycare children my daughter was with).
CTMH Party Time Scrapbook Layout
I just love how easy these kits are to put together. They are a great way to get your memories into albums. If you are interested in getting this kit we only have until the end of August...then they'll be replaced with new kits, with different themes.

Need a Thank You Card Idea?

Another fun card I made for the card swap. This card I used the same stamp set as the other cards (Happy Heart) but the paper pack was basic fundamentals. I really like how it turned out!
CTMH Thank You Card
Ps. The stamp set (Happy Heart, A1192) can be found in the new Annual Catalog. I used Basic Fundamentals (Z3353) paper to make this card (also in the catalog).
