White Pines Layout

So, this is Christmas...

You know I was singing this song in my head for hours after I created the title on this layout!  Sometimes songs just get stuck in your head! :)

Have you had a chance to check out the beautiful CTMH White Pines collection? It's available in the Holiday Expressions Idea Book but ONLY until December 31st!  It's gorgeous and perfect for a variety of creating.  The soft creams and browns pair beautifully for more natural scrapbook layouts and projects and the greens and reds scream "This is Christmas"!

At my last Layout Workshop all three layouts we created used this paper collection.  This layout was one of the layouts!  I'd love to have you join me next time and if you're too far to stop in and attend purchasing a kit on the go is also an option (please let me know if that is something you're interested in)!

In addition to the White Pines paper this layout also features an overlay cut from the new Cricut Artistry collection and embellished just enough with gold sequins for a clean look.

What have you been creating lately?  Are you planning on a crafty Christmas?  Remember to fill our your Santa wish lists and get them to me so I can help you out! If you would like a Santa list, contact me today!

Happy Crafting!

Falalalala Christmas Card

Anyone in the Christmas mood yet?  I so am!  I think it's because I've been preparing Christmas cards for my Christmas card buffet last month and have been playing with my papers of my upcoming layout workshop.  I certainly don't have my holiday shopping done! :)  Although, I have ideas swirling around... so I've got a start! :)

This Falalalala Christmas card was one of the cards that was available at my buffet in October.  

I have to say I love the simplicity of these trees and sentiment.  This card features 5 of 7 of the new CTMH colors that were introduced in September (saffron, fern, peacock, poppy and pomegranate). I have found myself creating a lot with these new rich colors.  They just look great, complementing each other well in multiple combinations and for many different projects!  

All the stamped images and sentiments come from a hostess rewards set available in Holiday Expressions, Festive Trees.  

Falalalala Christmas card featuring new CTMH colors!

 If you missed my workshop or are interested in hosting your own workshop contact me today.  I'd love to bring my workshop to you and a group of crafty friend or family members for a girls night out! 

All supplies used to create this card are available on my online site.  

Happy Crafting!

Sangria Layout

I LOVE the Sangria paper collection.  The mix of colors pared with this time of year puts a smile on my face!

When I saw this layout posted on CTMHs Blog I new I wanted to recreated it.  I love the mixture of stamped pieces that were incorporated from the September promotion Hello, Life and the strokes of water color.  I really like the look of water color and need to experiment this was a great place to begin!

Close to My Heart artwork from Make It from Your Heart.

This is how I recreated this layout with Sangria papers, Hello Life and watercolors.  I also used liquid glass to create epoxy bubbles on my layout and added to the lens of the camera.
