I’ve been creating a lot of cards lately to show off a variety of stamp sets, but here’s the one I wanted to share today with you using the February Stamp of the Month. Here’s the photo from my website (you can’t add it to your cart here … lol). But you can earn it for only $5.00 with a $50 purchase. The sayings are so cute for these guys:
Remember, when you see a ‘black’ stamp, it just means it’s full of color. Whatever stamp pad you ink it up in … is exactly the color it will stamp out to be. On my card ideas, I enjoyed adding a little depth to the ‘balloons’ by using some chalk of the same color as the ink pad (or close to it). Just a little bit of chalk, to add a ‘float’ of color (get it … balloon .. float?! Lame .. I know … AH-HA! It just made me think of the Thanksgiving Day parade & floats! Huh! Maybe you have some photos of that to scrap?)
I had fun with the pinwheel card when I found a lollipop stick in my craft stash. I wrapped washi tape around the stick and added the monkey to it. Using glue dots and some pop ups, it holds it in place. Pink Shimmer trim added the little ‘pop’ of sparkle to these cards.
You may like primary colors which goes to show you ANY COLOR you like, works! The yellow paper is from the Penelope Paper Pack.
What a perfect time to SHARE the LOVE and SMILE! During the month of February, when you purchase this stamp set, Share the Love …
Close to my Heart will donate $7 to Operation Smile! Look at the beautiful smile you can help to make happen with your purchase. Not only that, when you check out to after making your purchase, why not ROUND UP and donate a little bit more.Every cent counts towards the $250 it costs to change the life of one child and make them thrive andSMILE again!
Here’s a quick video to view:
Isn’t this an adorable card by Melanie Brown? I thought I would share it with you. Love the watercolor/paint look that she used to create the mass of color. So pretty!
This exclusive stamp set is only available during the month of February. You can buy it outright for $17.95, or when you make a $50 purchase, you can get it heavily discounted for only $5.00! The Share the Love Stamp set purchase counts towards your total, so it may be just the ticket for you!
I love the artwork that I found created by a fellow CTMH consultant and wanted to share the “Party Theme” idea. Stinkin’ cute for sure!
When I get some of my own artwork created (a little behind right now), I’ll post them too. But I thought I would share the love of ARTWORK and get the ball rolling for February. I just love Dana Kessler’s fun idea with the monkey … she’s always monkeying around on our incentive trips, so this is the perfect card. She used two embossing folders (damask and wood), paper clouds from Charlotte collection and I believe the water is from Regatta (sure to be a winner!).
Hello and welcome to the many new customers I have met over the past few months! This blog post is for YOU! I thought it might be a nice idea to share some of the You Tube Videos I’ve created that are important, helpful and insightful.

So, let’s get started (my hair is much longer now! lol):

Lots of variety and cash and carry a great convenience.

There are three new kits: Charlotte, Penelope and Regatta! Such stunning papers and artwork that really POP off the page! I think CTMH outdid themselves with this new line.
What’s changed? Well, instead of Workshops on the Go, they are now Workshops Your Way KITS
These new coordinated kits will include 12 sheets of pattern paper (2 each of 6 designs); 3 sheets of Cardstock; the Complements; the Accessory and another Embellishment (could be new ribbon).
All the products in each kit are new and can create 6 scrapbook pages AND cards too!
Now, you have the choice of adding a stamp set and buying it separately instead of it coming inside the kit. This gives you more freedom to pick and choose what YOU LIKE or forego stamping and use everything in the kit. In some instances, a stamp set has a coordinating THINLETTE Cutting system that works with a die cut machine. You can cut up to 3 layers of a die at one time!
Here’s a sneak peak of CHARLOTTE (coming soon):

Ya know, why reinvent the wheel? I loved the *new* card sketches in Charlotte that I thought, “Hmmm….why not show these cards again with the stamp of the month?” The January Stamp of the Month are beautiful roses giving you a base and shade look (a solid and then an outline). I was so inspired to use up some scraps from La Vie En Rose and here’s what I came up with:
Aren’t these cards attractive? And so easy to do! Ok, so yeah … I fussy cut the flowers but really … how hard is that? The inks I used were Whisper and Slate (grays); Cranberry & Pomegranate (reds) and black. Any gold accessory will do (using up my gold foil tape, gold fundamental assortments and even gold sequins would work too). The sky is the limit and this stamp set is available for only $5 with a $50 purchase. Of course you can just buy it outright for $17.95, but with so much new product, why not get it at a discount. Here’s a photo of the Beloved Bouquet stamp set:
Ya missed it! All the White Pines paper packets and Workshops on the Go SOLD OUT before the end date of 12/31. Thankfully, I stocked up for the January crops, but if you aren’t going to be there and want a kit, here’s what I am offering:
$45 includes White Pines paper pack, assortment, complements, red enamels, 1/2 pack of large flip flaps & some glacier twine and all the cardstock to make 8 pages.
$42.00 includes the White Pines Workshop on the Go (with stamp set) and Complements. You may need more cardstock and flip flaps to make the same 8 pages.
I have very limited quantities of each so if you are interested, please email me @ email@example.com

Oh yes … I am looking for two more gals to JOIN our Monthly Rewards Club.Read all about it HEREand email me to sign up! It’s only for 5 months and you receive FREE PRODUCT and cutting guides for the kits you purchase.
