Zoe Meets Love So Sweet

Here’s a card showing off both Zoe and Love So Sweet, the Stamp of the Month. The color updates for this paper make it look wonderful. Ink colors are Smoothie, Sweet Leaf, Heather, and Archival Black. Using the same design, I made 3 different cards. The Cricut was used to create the scalloped panel. A Design Space file for the entire card is available in my customer FB group. A few touches of Gold and Clear Shimmer Pens and some Gold Glitter Gems provide the finishing touches. Check out this FB live showing the card being made:

The design of the card is inspired by Sugar Pea Design and can be seen here:

Here’s a slide show of the 3 cards:

A tip for cutting out the butterflies: Stamp the image of the butterfly onto the card where you plan to place it. When cutting out the butterfly, don’t worry about cutting out around the body or antennas, they are stamped on the card base already. Line up the cut out butterfly onto the one stamped on the card base. It looks amazing! Roll the wings of the butterfly to add dimension (flowers too).

Wild About You!

While I’ve been working on migrating the website to a new server, dealing with all the other issues that come from computer upgrades and vending at weekend crops, CTMH launched a new special: Wild About You! It’s another mini album workshops! How fun!

You can create this 20 page album quickly and easily! The instructions are downloadable. It can be for a kid or someone you are sweet on. Or maybe a friend that you love doing life with. I’d even say you could use it as a teacher appreciation gift.

Made With Love Mini Album

Made with Love Mini Album Workshop Kit


The Made with Love mini album workshop kit includes the Mix-in paper packet, Mix-in coordinating cardstock, white ribbon, and wood mini album cover needed to create this workshop. The wood cover features a die-cut heart shape that is used inside the album and comes with three rings for assembly. You can purchase the workshop kit with the For My Mother stamp set at a 25% discount, or you can choose a kit option without the stamp set.

Note that there are two versions of the stamp set, one with American spellings of words like “favorite” and one with British spellings (favourite). Because of the two stamp set versions, there are also two versions of the workshop kit, one with each stamp set. Both stamp set versions are available to all customers based on their preferences, so be sure to use the correct item number when placing your orders so you get the right version of the stamp set.

When creating this project, we recommend that you seal the wood cover and heart with a clear matte acrylic spray sealer. This will prevent stamped images from bleeding and becoming fuzzy. Seal the cover first and allow it to dry. Then carefully stamp the sentiment and images with black StazOn™ ink. This will give you a crisp, clean image.


The workshop also requires cutting images from the Cricut® Artbooking collection. Cut the project pieces from the Design Space file we’ve created for this project. In order to cut from the project file, you must own the Artbooking collection and have a Cricut® machine that is compatible with Design Space. If you already own the physical cartridge, a list of shapes to cut is also provided in the workshop instructions. The instructions can be downloaded from my website! =) Check out this amazing project – 20+ pages (not posted in order)!!
