I loved the mother/daughter idea in this set, although I have a son of my own :)  Made my own mom a Mother’s Day card.  Very simple – black ink on a white card and then colored in using our watercolor pencils.  Hope you enjoy!

CTMH New Product Blog Hop!

Welcome to the CTMH New Product Blog Hop!  This month we have over 25 hoppers!  We will be featuring new products available in the just released Spring/Summer idea book!  The hop is a great big circle so you can just start here and keep hopping!  If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers here.

I did something with every paper pack in this new idea book.  It always amazes me how much I love the papers once I get them.  Sometimes, I see the pictures and think, eh, I dunno but then they come and I see the detail and the colors and love them!

If you’ve arrived from Joy’s Blog, you are in the right place.

I made a swing card on cricut Artiste with Jubillee pape pack and the border at the top uses made from scratch stamp set.    Same stamps used for inside sentiment.    I also stamped white daisy cardstock with the feathers stamp set to make the design on the bottom border.

Balloon ride is a really fun paper pack!  I made a gift card holder on the cricut and then cut out the balloons from the paper to make the embellishment.

I must admit.  Lollydoodle is my favorite.  I’m a sucker for the fun colorful papers.  So, I made some post it note holders.  Had some round coasters – used Cricut to cut the circles in the same size and I glued them together with the notes on top.  One little flower from Artiste and a magnet on the back and now I have a cute little notepad holder for the fridge or office!  I tried a few paper combinations.

Skylark paper pack is also whimsical.  For some added fun, I decided to alter a mousetrap (my husband thinks I’m truly nuts now). It was so easy!   I plucked off the parts I didn’t need with pliers and then measured the papers and used tape gun to set it.  Cut the flower out from Artiste and a little decor and a magnet on the back.  NO paper is falling out of this clip for sure!

This card was made also vey simply and with Ivy Lane paper pack and Pick a Posey Stamp set:

This card very simple made with Ariana Paper pack and the Inspiration Floursishes stamp set.

Timberline paper pack and Cricut Artbooking to make a magnetic photo frame.  Great paper for manly projects.

CTMH Cloud Nine Blog Hop!

Cloud+Nine+final

Welcome to the Cloud Nine Blog Hop!    We have over 20 hoppers for this blog hop!  Remember, the hop is a big circle so keep going through and you can go all the way around!

You  can get this exclusive Cloud Nine cardmaking kit for $15 (retail value $46) with a qualifying purchase of $35 or more  during January in celebration of National Papercrafting Month. Make 10 adorable cards (2 each of 5 designs) with funky messages to put any recipient on cloud nine! You can add one cardmaking kit for every $35 in your order.  This is a great special offered by CTMH for National Stamping Month!

If you have come from Karen’s blog, you are in the right place!

This is a great deal and I love to make cards from kits and sometimes I like to rearrange cards from kits as well.  So for this hop, what I have done for you is made one card per the instructions, and a second card with the same initial cuts and stamps as the instructions but I put them together differently.  Just a little spin for creativity!

So, for each picture, the card on the left is using the instructions and the card on the right is my spin on it!

So I made two other non-card items with the scraps.  The first is a notebook that I just cut out 4×4 and put together with my bind-it-all.

Then I decided to try something – I’m not sure how much I like it but here it is – an altered mousetrap with a magnet on the back for a fridge clip:

If you have come to me from Wanda’s blog, you are in the right place!

I love the way this set stamps – the ‘cross stitching’ provides great detail!  I chose to do a gift tag with this on a round coaster.   Since I was only doing one I cut it by hand and then cut out the stampings as well.  Here’s how it turned out!
