CTMH Artwork

Hey everyone!  I know I've just been posting a bunch of videos lately (but don'tcha just love those instructional videos?  I think they're great inspiration) so I just went thru my edited photos file and found the last few photos that I don't think I've posted yet.

I've been in a time crunch this week attempting to clean the house and get ready to have a Halloween party on Saturday.  The days just get away from me - I haven't even put any decorations up yet!  But I can proudly say that I've just finished the last of the cleaning.  Well, it's clean enough.  Let's put it that way.

Anyway, here are those photos:
First up, some 3 x 3 cards made with an M -sized stamp set.  You can get these great little stamps for only $2.95 at  I stamped it on white daisy cardstock, then stamped again on patterned paper and fussy - cut the 'You'.  Then I glued the letters on top of the white daisy stamp and ran the whole thing thru my embosser with a Sizzix plate.  Super easy and they turn out so cute!  I always try to tuck in a little thank you note with customer purchases.
 Next up, the cards from the Lola cardmaking workshop on the go.  This set is still available thru the end of January 2014, and it comes with everything you need to make 15 cards.
 I switched out a few of the 'Cheer Up' card sentiments with a Birthday sentiment instead since I'll probably have more opportunities to send a birthday card.
 Next up, my first Artbooking layout.  I made this several months ago, and I may or may not have already posted it!  :-)  I used the Surf's Up papers.  I switched out the sentiment that originally was planned for this layout page in the cartridge handbook, and I added a photo since I didn't have any larger ones on hand.  I think it still worked out well.  And when I actually get to scrapbooking all the photos from that cruise, I'll probably use the complete original layout from the handbook too.  Love how you can mix and match everything to make it work for your photos.

The Surf's Up papers are still available thru the end of January, but some of the papers that will be 'retiring' tend to sell out sooner.  This stuff is really a 'while supplies last' situation right before the next Idea Book comes out.
And last, I designed this card as a project for my upline's last team meeting.  (She'd just moved and all her supplies were still packed up so I was happy to help her out)  This is an overlay that I keyed in as Real Dial Size to re-size it to fit my card.  I did the same with the frame.  I backed it with Huntington paper and used the zip strip at the bottom.  The stamp set is available in the Autumn Idea Book.  I just inked it up with several colors using an ink dauber.  Then I 'huffed' on it to re-moisten the ink before placing my image.

I'll try to take a few photos of stuff I made for the Halloween party and maybe get it posted early next week!  Thanks for stopping by, and if you have any questions, please leave a comment!
