Creative Challenge

I’m doing a creative challenge in my customer FB group. You’ll want to hop in and play because you could win a $25.00 shopping spree (No consultants please.) I was inspired to create these card by my upline. I made them with the Hawthorn papers, the Hawthorn Scrapbooking Stamp Set and Thin Cut Dies, Share the Season Binder Clip Label Thin Cut, along with several of the new ink pad colors. The leaves are done with the “Rock and Roll” technique where you use a lighter ink color and then roll the edges of the stamp in a darker color. Use several shimmer brushes to create the splattered look.

Here’s the details:

*Create your own version which can be the same as mine or different.
*Use 90% CTMH products as this is my CTMH Special Peeps group.
*You have all month to create.
*I’ll create an album you can add them to.
*When you post, put the add #septcardchallenge
*You can enter up to 3 times/month.
*The winner will be announced in the first week of the following month.
*You will win a $25.00 CTMH Hostess Credit shopping spree on your next order!!

Interested in playing? Make sure to join my FB group because that’s where you’ll be posting your entries!!

Random Acts of Cardness

Random Acts of Cardness offers us a chance to reach out and let someone know you are thinking of them. In life’s crazy, sometimes one can feel like you are not seen or heard. A random act of kindness can change anyone’s day. This card set helps you do that. Look at these amazing sayings:

I have cut a number of the stamps up so I can get more use out of them (and not have to mask). This card uses the thin cut die from this month’s special, Share The Seasons:

Here is CTMH’s take on Random Acts of Cardness:

More to come on the Random Acts of Cardness. Remember if you purchase it for $5.00 with a $50.00 order, you will get a free Kit of the Month with your Happy Mail!!

CTMH Complete Creativity!

We have a fun, new cartridge from Cricut (plus they have “unretired” the digital images of the other cartridges) – Complete Creativity! They have also made us Cricut Affiliates so while you can get to purchase the cartridge from my CTMH Website, you’ll be taken directly to complete the purchase separately from other items. You can shop for anything you need from the Cricut site as well. Here are the images:

Here’s some close ups of the projects:

There is a lot of fun in the cartridge! When you purchase this from me, you’ll need to forward me your receipt to participate in Happy Mail! =)

Hugs and Happy Creating!!

September is here with a lot of new fun for CTMH!

September is here and I’m hoping that the weather of last week continues. Fall is my favorite season. Pumpkin Spice Lattes, boots, chill in the air (maybe), and cropping season starts! Change. Speaking of Change, CTMH has changed things up! Read carefully so you’ll know how things work! Look at the covers of the Idea Books and you know CTMH is ready for fall!

We have a new Cricut Cartridge coming soon. I am now a Cricut Affiliate and if you do not have one who’s link you use, please use my link to shop from Cricut. This is the only way I’ll be compensated when you purchase the CTMH Collections and more! CRICUT LINK

One bundle has the stamps sets only for 20% off and the other bundle has it all for 30% off! This is another rabbit hole and the creating you can do with these thin cut dies is endless. More art to come.
