This Seaside card is one we made for the July Consultant Look and See, an event for my team.  I used “Treasured Friendship” (C1592), .   Images are stamped in Archival Black Ink.   We used our spray pens filled with water (you can use alcohol) and reinker (a few drops) to create the background.  I added a pea-sized drop of white acrylic pearl paint.  Mix it up well and you have your own Shimmer Mist and can make it any color to match your CTMH projects!!

Made with Seaside papers  (X7192B) and Treasured Friendship stamp set (C1594)

We colored the images in with our new Shinhan Touch Alcohol Markers (love them).  The stamped image is matted on Glacier and Desert Sand and put on the card base that is covered with Background and Texture paper from the Seaside pack.   Finishing touches are the Seaside Assortment and our Bling Gold Gems!  It’s a fun, easy card with a beautiful sentiment on it.  Enjoy creating!!

First Day of School!

Well, whether we want to happen or not, our kids all leave for their first day of school.  To be able to celebrate this big day each year, I created a “First Day of School” picture frame.  I was inspired by a variety of pictures I found on Google Pics and on Pinterest.    I used our Chalk It Up papers, glitter papers, chalkboard paper (retired), and cardstock to make this. I got the picture frame from Micheal’s with a coupon (highly recommend this as the frame that works best needs to have a good three inches width on the frame and these cost around $50.00 to $60.00).

Use an 18" by 20" frame.  Almost done here

I love having a fun way to save these precious memories!  Interested in a class?  Contact me!!

August SOM What a Hoot!

The August SOM is “What A Hoot” .  It’s really cute!  I love this cute little treat bag featured in the Annual Inspirations.


Treat Bag cut from Artiste Cricut Cartridge.

You can use this owl for Halloween if you want but it’s really much more versatile!  You can use it for birthdays or any other celebration you’d like.  You can seen the generic party hat and other embellishments you can use to create cards, layouts, boxes, and more to celebrate relationship in your live.  You can purchase the stamp set for $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase.  To make the treat bags, use Cricut Artiste.

Picture My Life – Wanderful

For September, one of the paper packs I’m featuring for WOTG is Wanderful.  The paper is for travel/vacations and with everyone home from summer vacations, we’ll all have pictures to scrapbook!!  These pages are not the WOTG but pages that feature using Wanderful Picture My Life Cards on layouts!




On this layout, I used 3 Picture My Life Cards to do both accenting and journalling.


Left page has Picture My Life card as a journalling block; Right page has two Picture My Life cards – one for journalling and one as an accent/embellishment.

Picture My Life is a very versatile product which you can use as a stand alone way to scrapbook and use the extras in classic scrapbooking!  This month, when you order a PML kit, you get a set of Memory Protectors for $3.00!!
