CTMH Snowman

I hope everyone enjoys the Christmas music. I spent the morning on project play list trying to find a variety of music. I’m kind of a eclectic girl when it comes to music. I like about everything but country. I also changed my background to the closest template that blogger has to go with Christmas. Grey was the only thing I could find. But grey looks good with the red play list I think. I have been working a few extra hours at one of my jobs this week and keeping up with kids so I only got to make one set of cards this week. I got the Snowman set from CTMH a couple of weeks ago and could not wait to try it out. I used the sketch challenge from last week on split coast. Hope everyone has a great weekend and Thanks for visiting!!


Supplies I Used:

Set: All Decked Out

Autumn's Layout

My youngest daughter Autumn brought home her 8th grade pictures right before our break started. She did not like them very much but really what female likes pictures of herself. I use to dodge cameras every change I got but now I don’t fight it so much cause I know that my girls will want them when they are older. I love pictures of my family in every form so I know that they will cherish pictures of me also. I just wish I could get my mom and husband to understand this to. Anyways as soon as she brought her pictures to me I knew I wanted to do a 12 x 12 layout of the 5x7. I usually do not do 12 x 12 layouts of one picture but I thought this one was to cute to add other pictures with. I realize that this time next year her braces will be off ( heaven help her Dad and Me) and her looks will change yet again so I wanted to preserve this image. Both my girls are growing up so fast. My oldest will graduate high school next year!!! Wow!! I do not think I am ready for them to grow up. Don’t you wish sometimes you could zap them back little again.

I used mostly Close to My Heart supplies for this page. The flowers where white and I mixed create-a-shade paint (CTMH) and groovy guava re-inker (SU) and sponge painted it over both flowers until they where completely covered. I really like the pearly shine it gave the flowers.

Supplies I used:
Stamps: Homestead Alpha (CTMH)
Paper: Evensong CTMH kit and Sorbet
Ink: Old Olive (SU), Groovy Guava re-inker
Big Blossoms, create-a-shade paint, holiday buttons, hollyhock rick-rack ribbon, sorbet marker (all CTMH), Top Note Die (SU)

Thanks for Visiting!! Have a good Evening!!

Shaker Village

This is the second layout I have completed on my days off. This layout is of our boat ride at Shakers Village when we went to Lexington on my Hubby’s 40th. I was inspired by the WICKED challenge on the demo only forum on split coast. The wicked challenge is to use only current SU products but I used Basic Grey paper and Prima flowers so I will not list it under the challenge but I loved the sketch so I wanted to give credit where it is due. Well I need to get a shower so I can go vote!! Boy am I nervous to see how it all comes out. Oh I go swap cards yesterday and WOW are they wonderful. Some very talented ladies is all I can say.

Supplies I used:
Stamps: Inspired by Nature
Ink: Old Olive, More Mustard
Paper: Basic Grey, More Mustard, Textured Baja Breeze
Prima flowers, SU buttons, CK computer program for journaling

UK Big Blue Madness

I am off from work today and tomorrow and I am finally getting some scrapping done. This is the first layout I finished so far today. It is of out day trip for Jerry’s 40th birthday Oct. 10th. This layout is of the Big Blue Madness scrimmage we went to that evening. I used our tickets and a big badge a local channel was giving out for embellishments. I cut off the pin on back with wire cutters and doubled up on foam on back to make it stick. I actually cut the foam that holds pop dots and stuck it on back. I hate to waste. I also used SU five petal, scallop circle and circle punches to make my own embellishments. The buttons are from Wal-mart and the cardstock is CTMH textured.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day!!!

Swap Cards

I join my first swap ever this week. Well I have swaped with the girls in my upline from SU before but never one where you make several cards and send them all to one person. The Swap was from Spitcoast it was on the forum of SU Demo users. It was a WOW 10 + 1 swap. I join two groups so I end up making two sets of eleven cards. You had to us only SU products and have four layers and three embellishments. I was a little low on Christmas looking paper so I had to reverse the pattern paper on the Kiwi and Riding Hood cards. Let me tell you I am a little nervous!!!! Will the Post office get my cards there safely?? Will everyone like my cards?? And many more questions pop into my head. I can’t wait to see everyone’s cards and let me tell you I’m not good at waiting!! I am getting a some Stampin’ Up! Goodies this week so that will have to tide me over until the cards come. Well I hope everyone has a good weekend!! I need to go eat before I fall over faint.

Garden Card Magazine Holder

I am working on this set for my mom as part of a gift for her birthday. She is very hard to buy for. She is not into any hobby or colleting anything and she is kind of picky about her cloths. So my sister and I took her out to eat and this set and some mums for the front of her house is what I plan to give her. She is 73 now and has everything so I want to give her something I have made and she will have some cards on hand when she needs them. I have four made and plan to make copies of them until the holder is full. I will most likely have it all done by Friday. I used the CTMH stamp set of the Month Treasure Life. I like the garden look of this set. I also got a SU order of new paper and sets today and can’t wait to play with them.
