Spring 2018 Card Buffet

Spring 2018 Card Buffet

As we march on towards Spring, the Card Buffet has been updated and is ready to go with several new card addition. Take this card for example.  It’s a different twist on shaker cards which are super popular.  Using the Oval Thin Cut dies (on sale 25% off this month or 30% in the bundle) and a 3×4″ Flip Flap, you can make this super cute shaker card.


Actually, using the smaller flip flaps to make shaker cards leave them thinner than if you make them with foam tape, shaker shapes, or shaker cups.  This is a nice feature when it comes to mailing them out!  =)

Join us for the Come and Play Spring 2018 Card Buffet!  Here’s a collage of some of the cards to come:

Don’t forget about our awesome planner!

The 2017 planner is fantastic.

The versatility is great.  While I won’t be using it for a planner, I will be using it as a journal for the Bible Studies I participate in.  I do like the coloring portion and how I can watercolor parts of the planner (the month pages).1612-maincarousel-planner-d-us

I’m starting to plan out or design my January month because, gee it’s only a few weeks away.  So crazy.  The planner pages are done horizontal which is why I decided to keep track of some thoughts or things that struck me as important when I was studying.


Here is using the watercolor pencils for August yet using the markers for the page on the left under January.  Here’s what the bundles are:


I love the binders.  They are so soft and squishy (almost sounds like Charmin here).  They emboss well and you can personalize them with vinyl.  You can purchase the pages separately if you have a binder already. This is a nice option.

Stop my by site and get yours today.  This a while supplies last!


Thanks friends for stopping by,




More on the Everyday Life Coloring Planner plus new Die Cuts!


1610-maincarousel-planner-d-usI’ve had a few questions about the planner and here are some of the answers!

What’s in the planner bundle?

The planner bundle includes one or the other of the Everyday Life™ Sea Glass album or the Everyday Life stripes album, as well as the planner pages. These planner pages come with monthly calendars (Sunday through Saturday), weekly calendars (Monday through Sunday), 12 pages for notes and journaling, a clear pencil bag, and three gold paperclips.

What products can I use in my planner?

Other recommended items that will work well with the planners to express your creativity through coloring! Include the following:

What can I use to color in my planners?

CTMH has designed the divider pages of the planner (pages with tabs) so they have thicker paper, which will allow you to use of a variety of products when coloring. Here are the different products you can use on the dividers:

  • ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers
  • Watercolor pencils (dry or with a waterbrush)
  • Exclusive Inks™ stamp pads (pressing ink into lid and picking up with a waterbrush)
  • Watercolor paints (used with a waterbrush or paintbrush)

**Please note:  Although the planner is not made with watercolor paper, you can use watercolors on these pages; however, we recommend using paint with very little water for best results.

The planner pages themselves, including the “remember” pages, are made of paper that is more light weight paper than the divider but you can certainly color them!


For best results, here are the products we recommend on the planner pages:

  • Watercolor pencils (dry)
  • Clear shimmer brush
  • Metallics markers
  • Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ journaling pen
  • Exclusive Inks™ stamp pads

**Please note: Although you can use ink from our stamp pads on these pages, we recommend using smaller stamp images and lighter colors for best results. We do not recommend using our pigment inks.

Also, don’t forget that you can add our Everyday Life™ Memory Protectors™ to your planner as well! These protectors are great for adding photos of loved ones or just for more customization. You can also do pocket scrapbooking with this planner and album.  Get two albums and you can scrapbook the year with Picture My Life cards, photos, and the calendar pages to act as a journal/document of the year.

A friend is one…another December SOM card

Here’s another December SOM S1512 Candlelight Garden card “A friend is one…”:

S1512 Card 2 wmI was inspired by the card sketch from Mojo Monday Sketch 427.  It’s not exact but has the “window pane” look.

Mojo427I used our watercolor pencils to color in the images.  I went over the coloring with a watercolor brush and water to blend it.   I find the watercolor pencils an easy option for people who want a watercolor look but not the mess!

3505You can get great shading and depth in color by layering.  If you need things to be lighter, use water and a paper towel to “lift” out the color.

S1512 CArd2b wm


Create the “water” by adding depth (darkness) of color around the edges of the jar, making strokes following the circular lines of the jar.  Go lighter towards the center.  Create the top of the water by defining a circle on top and coloring within that circle.

S1512 Card 2a wm


Finish off with the sentiment and the sequins. I added the sentiment on the side of the card for a different look (and honestly, where else was it going to fit??).   Neutral colored “gold” sequins have different shades of gold in the packet, giving you options.
