Looking For Some Lovely Artwork? Need A Gift Idea? Check Here!

I thought today I'd share a few more art projects that the art dept. at CTMH made with the paper pack "La Vie En Rose". I think the scrapbook layout with "my love" on it...would make a beautiful gift if put into a frame.

La Vie En Rose ~ Workshop On The Go ~Scrapbooking Kit ~ Pretty Paper For Just About Any Project!

I thought I would share the paper pack "La Vie En Rose" with you today. You can buy the Workshop On The Go (G1100). It comes with: a La Vie En Rose paper pack, a special D-Size stamp set (can only get this set if you buy the wotg kit), La Vie En Rose Assortment, Gold Foil Tape, and an Instructional Brochure. 


If you're not really into stamping you can buy the paper pack (X7201B) and La Vie En Rose Complements (X7201C) and make your own designs up. Or, try out one of the How-To Publications: "Make It From The Heart, vol. 1" (9035), "Make It From The Heart, vol. 2" (9042), "Reflections" (9037), "Cherish" (9038), "Imagine" (9039), "Magic" (9040), "Wishes" (9041) or "Originals" (9036) to get ideas.

And, if you are into stamping and want to scrapbook or make cards...we have a few sets that go great with this paper (there are others that go too...just too many to list...if these don't work for you, just check out the catalog)..."Blossoming Expressions" (D1665), "Floral Banners" (D1663), "I Do" (D1636), and "Mr. & Mrs." (C1621).

No matter which way you want to go...you're going to want to order this paper. So, check it out and get to work!

Video ~ How To Use Thin Cuts ~ Crafting Smarter and Faster!

I thought today I would share a video that Close To My Heart put on youtube called "How To Use Thin Cuts". I thought I would share this video because they show us how easy they are to use. CTMH also has thin cuts and a stamp set to coordinate with the Charlotte WYW. The stamp set is called "Springtime Wishes" (C1641) and the matching thin cuts are called "Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts" (Z3201). So, take a few minutes and check out the video!

Artwork I Made Using Charlotte WYW Kit ~ Scrapbook Layouts

I thought today I would share the pages I made using the paper pack "Charlotte". I used the Charlotte WYW Kit (G1104). I followed the kit and changed it a little bit to fit the photos I had. Since the photos were already printed I had to work with what I had. I covered up most of the photos (the faces, and some of the journaling) on my layouts. Just in case you were wondering what the white paper is in the layouts. I figured there is enough showing to give you an idea of how cute these layouts are!

DIY ~ Make Your Own Key Chains!

I thought I'd share today a few key chains I made. It was not that easy to get good photos (the spots in the photos are just in the photos, not on the charms). But they do make great gifts! I used CTMH's Base & Bling line along with some Liquid Glass. Super fast and easy to put together.

Charlotte ~ Workshops Your Way ~ Scrapbooking Kit ~ Picture My Life Packet Page Cards ~ Cards

Guess what?! With the new catalog that just came out we have a new workshop...it's a little different than the "Workshop On The Go" we are use to having (still have in the annual catalog). So I thought I would share the new WYW Kit with you today. 

This kit is called "Charlotte". You can buy the Charlotte Workshops Your Way (G1104). It comes with: a Charlotte paper pack, Charlotte Complements, 3 Cardstock sheets (1 black & 2 whisper), Black & Gold Ribbon, and Treasured Puffies. These kits do have directions on making all the projects (that are shown in the catalog) but you'll need to go to my website to print them out. Or you can try out one of the How-To Publications: "Make It From The Heart, vol. 1" (9035), "Make It From The Heart, vol. 2" (9042), "Reflections" (9037), "Cherish" (9038), "Imagine" (9039), "Magic" (9040), "Wishes" (9041) or "Originals" (9036) to get ideas.

This WYW Kit does not include a stamp set but CTMH made a stamp set (Springtime Wishes, C1641) and (Brand New) Thin Cuts (Springtime Wishes Thin Cuts, Z3201) to match up perfectly.

I've been playing with this kit and just love it! I know you'll love it too...so go to my website and get your order in today! 

Ps. I only shared a few of the projects you make with this kit...check back here on Monday for the rest of the projects!
