Bride & Groom Wedding Card

I will admit that I just love how this card turned out. The paper used is For Always, one of the new pretty paper packs in the Spring/Summer Idea Book. The card base, the heart, the bride and groom was made with the Cricut Artiste cartridge that is exclusive to CTMH. I used a cricut black marker to outline the bride & groom before cutting them out. The trick is to remember the exact position on your cricut before cutting them out, otherwise they will not cut out correctly. For example I had the mat set at 4 11/16 when I used the marker, so once they are markered, than you have to move your setting back to 4 11/16 before cutting them. I hope this makes sense.

This is the inside of the card. 

Happy Valentine's Day Card

Here is a card I created for the make n takes at the two crops I have this month.  I used the January Stamp of the month "Happy Valentine's" and I stamped the flowers with brown staz-on and colored them in with the cotton candy and olive markers.

2012 Convention Cards

Ok so I am totaling slacking on getting all of my posts up, but I finally decided to commit to my blog. I have had these cards done for awhile, they were the ones that they gave to us at convention to do. Everything was precut, I can't imagine what it is like at corporate to prepare the cards and layouts that they give to us consultants. CTMH is truly an amazing company. I just love this stamp set, it is called Pun Fun, the turtle is my favorite! The cards were made out of the Flirty paper pack and Dakota paper pack. Flirty will be retiring at the end of this month but Dakota is carrying over into the Spring/Summer book.

Halloween Layout

This is the Halloween workshop on the go kit that was in the Fall/Winter Idea Book called Moonlight. These kits are so nice, they come with everything to make a two page layout plus a bonus project, included is a paper pack, stamp set and the embellishments for $29.95.  Isn't my Barney and witch super duper cute?

Fall Scarecrow Layout

Here is another layout that was given to us at convention, it was designed for a more Texas theme but decided that it would make a super cute fall layout so I changed it up some.  We took the kids to a local pumpkin patch and I thought these pictures were perfect for the layout. The stamp set used was the Sept stamp of the month, one of my faves. The scarecrow was colored in with the awesome alcohol makers that CTMH just started selling this past August, they are so easy to use, and my customers are loving them.

2012 Convention Layout

Here is one of they layouts that they gave to us at convention last year. I had the layout done for awhile and  just finally got my pics on there so I thought I would share it.  The hunky guys in the top layout were two of the gentlemen from the Texas Tenors, they performed at our awards dinner. They were awesome to listen to, and very nice looking! Ok there is a huge glare on the photo on the second layout with the picture of me and Kristine Widtfelt, she is the VP of Marketing and an amazing and funny lady. The convention was such a wonderful experience and can't wait to go again at DisneyWorld this summer.
