Want A Few Ideas To Share Your Memories With Others...Other Than Traditional Scrapbooking?

I thought I'd share a few more ideas showing the "Wanderful" paper pack. You don't have to use it just for traditional scrapbook layouts. You can use the cute "Hip Pics Album" (Z1956), or you could make a single page to show off in your home, or you can use the Picture My Life program (Z2019). All of these are such fun projects...and a great way to share your memories with others!

Planning Vacation Scrapbook Layouts? Check Out This Paper!

I thought I would share the paper pack "Wanderful" (X7191B) with you today. It will be retiring by the end of August (unless it sells out before then). There is also stickers (X7191C) that coordinate with the paper to make scrapbooking super easy and fast. So, if you are planning to scrapbook some pictures from your vacation you should check out this paper. I'm including a few ideas from the CTMH Art Department.

Notepad Gifts Using Confetti Wishes Paper Pack

I finally took pictures of some of the artwork I did using "Confetti Wishes" paper pack. I made three (2) page layouts (which I didn't take photos) of my son's 2nd birthday party. I wanted to use up the paper pack (which I haven't completely done yet) so I made 3 notepad covers. I still have some of the paper and plan to make a few birthday cards to finish using up this pack. Once I make the cards I'll share them too. I used a card idea that CTMH's Art Department made as a guide to make these. I think they came out cute! I plan to use these for little gifts when customers put in an order (one might be coming your way if you order).   

CTMH Notepad Covers

Along with the paper I used one of my favorite CTMH products "Shimmer Trim". I am so excited that we keep getting new colors of this stuff! It's so easy to use...and no mess either...since it's glitter. Love this stuff! I also used 2 stamp sets: Capture The Day (A1165) and "Happy Birds" (C1600). Let me know what you think of these!

Look How Cute These Treat Bags Are!

I thought today I'd share a few ideas here from the CTMH Art Department. I created some artwork but haven't had time yet to take photos...with my kids home from school my schedule is all kinds of crazy. Anyway, I hope you enjoy these ideas. I just love the little treat bags they made. If you have a Cricut machine you can order one of the cartridges to make some for your next party...or they are a great way to give a little gift. The "Make a Wish" came from a cartridge too. The stamp sets that they used are: "Spring Banner" (M1044), "Mini Calendar" (M1050), "Blooming Heart" (M1049), "Timely Tidings" (M1047), and "A Quick Hello" (M1048). You might not realize it but they are all "M" size stamp sets...they are all $2.95 each. I thought that for the price...they really give the card and treat bags some real punch!

Ps. There are other "M" size stamp sets too...just go look on my website.

Video ~ Close To My Heart: Life is Worth...

I thought today I would share a video that Close To My Heart put on youtube called "Close To My Heart: Life is Worth...". I thought I would share this video because it shows you just a small window of what CTMH is all about...and why I am a consultant! So, take a few minutes and check out the video!

Need A New Checkbook Cover? Check Out This Idea!

I thought today I'd share some artwork using the "Blossom" (X7196B) paper pack and the stamp set "Shower Flowers" (C1612). The photo with the two cards was made by the CTMH's art department. The other photo shows what I made at a team meeting (you can't tell from the photo but the paper fits into a plastic checkbook holder, which is kind of peeking out from behind the paper). I was glad we made these at the meeting because my checkbook cover needed to be replaced and now I have a bright, spring like cover.

Graduation Card And Thank You Gift For The Counselor Who Made Middle School A Little Easier

I thought today I'd share the card I made my daughter for her 8th grade graduation. I used the paper pack "Chalk It Up" (X7184B), stamp set "Great Job" (C1588), markers to color the stamp in, and a few "White Enamel Stars" (Z2010). I wanted something that was as bright, creative, and fun as she is. I think it was exactly that. 

CTMH Chalk It Up Card For Graduation

I also wanted to share the "Thank You" gift I made for the school counselor. The counselor was a big help at school and really made life at middle school better for my daughter. So I made the counselor this dry erase board (I added a saying to it but didn't get a picture of that, and also a card that I forgot to take a picture of). I also put a pack of dry erase markers in with the gift so she can change the saying to whenever she wants. I used retired paper and stickers but you can get this month's sotm "Life Is Wonderful" if you like the sticker and make that topper super easy (and in whatever color you want to match your paper). I think it came out nice and hope she enjoys it.
