Moonlight Layout for Club. Smokey Plum, Goldrush cardstock. We used Harvest Happiness and the September Stamp of the Month. the leaves and tag were cut with Art Philosophy. We all enjoyed the chance to use the new markers when we colored our scarecrow and pumpkins.

I used 2 My Creations blocks to make these Countdown to Christmas blocks. I used Pear and Partridge paper to cover and embellish the 3 inch sides. The numbers come from the Countdown stamp set. Other stamps are from the Card workshop and Christmas Joy stamp sets.
BTW, as of Nov 8 there are 46 days until Christmas!! :)

This simple card was made using Pear and Partridge papers and coordinating ink colors. The sentiments came from the stamp set in the card workshop and other Christmas sets. Cranberry buttons were all that was needed to finish it off.

This moonlight layout was what the Girls Scrapbook Club made on Saturday. We used Harvest Happiness stamps, Smokey Plum, Sweet Leaf, Autumn Terracotta, Goldrush and Honey inks. The Owl was cut on Cricut Artiste. The branch is Art Philosophy.  The felt embellishments and buttons came from the craft store.

These little gift bags are easy to make and will hold a gift card to your loved one's favorite store. You can make at least one of each at the Christmas Card party.

This is the 2nd card we'll make at the Christmas Card party. Shout out to CTMH consultant Suz Daniels for the design inspiration.

A Teaser.... This is one of the cards we'll make at the Christmas get together. :-)

The Artists cartridge and Goldrush cardstock makes this pumpkin on page 85 of the catalog. It's adorned with leaves, an acorn and the vine from the Harvest Happiness stamp set.

This very simple card uses Pear and Partridge B&T paper, Desert sand and Cranberry cardstock and the Pear & Partridge rub-ons. The sentiment was stamped with the Christmas Love set. Adorned with Silver Shimmer Trim ribbon.

Hey All,
Here's some great tips on ways to use the Alcohol Base Markers. I've been experimenting with them too so the next time we can get together we can play!

Marker Madness

Monday, October 15, 2012

This box was made with the Cricut Artiste cartridge and decorated with Moonlight B&T and Goldrush cardstock (the sides of the box, which aren't pictured). The leaves were cut out with Art Philosophy and stamped on Goldrush and Sweet Leaf cardstock with coordinating ink. I used Raffia from a craft store for the bow. The Give Thanks sentiment is from A Little Thanks. The leaves were stamped with one of the sets that came with the Art Philosophy cartridge.

This beautiful card was designed by CTMH consultant, Sara Batkin. The snowflakes were created using the ornament from the Oct Stamp of the Month. Besides Crystal Blue, we also used Whisper. I added Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel and clear sparkles.

This layout uses Pear and Partridge paper and the stamp set included with the Card Workshop on the Go. Amy Raimy came up with the design.

This is a 9 inch wreath I created today. I used CTMH cardstock cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. Goldrush, honey, barn red, cranberry and olive for a few leaves. I also used the Arbor Wooden Shapes. I sponged the wood pieces. The raffia was not CTMH. It's something I've had for so long I don't remember where I got it. This went together in under 2 hours. The leaves are varying sizes between 1.5- 2.5 inches. I covered the styrofoam form in ribbon, hot-gluing it and all the other pieces into place.

This layout is for the Girls Scrapbook Club on Saturday. It uses Scholastic paper and the "School is Here" stamp set. We also used the Constant Campaign set "It's Your Day." And I added the tags from "Vintage Type" and a Milepost Shape. Ink colors are Outdoor Denim, Ruby, Creme Brulee, Cocoa and Cashmere.

This is La Belle Vie paper. Our Club made this layout on Saturday. We used Smokey Plum ink with the Sweet Moments stamp set and added lots of sparkles. The frames and sign hangers were cut with Cricut Artiste.

This is a box cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge. I embellished it with Hollyhock paper, buttons and the rose on top is a piece of Hollyhock ribbon. The border and fan on the box are Cricut Artiste creations.

This is our Club layout using Clementine paper. We sponged the edges of the paper with coordinating inks. The button shapes were cut using Cricut Artiste and then stamped. Notice the burlap ribbon that is enhanced with creme brulee baker's twine.

This was the August Girls Scrapbook Club layout. We used an older paper packet called Fanfare.

This is the Constant Campaign available through the month of September. This DOUBLE stamp set celebrates National Scrapbooking Month in a fun way! With a purchase of $35 you can add this huge set for just $5.

This is Footloose paper. The Girls' Scrapbook Club did this layout last week. If you missed this layout and still want to make it, let me know. I might be able to arrange a "make-up" time with you. Our next gathering is planned for the end of August but we haven't chosen a date yet.

This paper is called Dakota and is found in the new Fall/Winter Idea Book. You can begin ordering from this book starting August 1. The layout designs are in the Imagine Book.

This is the layout we did at our last Club get together. We used Pemberley paper. The large circle was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. The idea for this page came from a design in the Spring/Summer Idea book on page 11.

This is the left hand page of the layout. I liked how the girls were creative with where they put the arrows and other embellishments. I also liked the way they cropped their photos and were able to put a lot on the pages. Nice work, girls!
Page 2 of the layout with Typeset paper. Sorry it's blurry. For some reason, I couldn't get this one right.
This is the title page the girls made at their first Club get together. We used the Dotty For You Paper. Sorry I've yet to add pictures to mine. I just don't take that many of myself. :) The pics I saw of the girls all looked great. They did a fabulous job on their pages.

This is my nephew, Daniel, on a CTMH Superhero layout that we did for Club last month. He was so perfect for this paper! Ask me if you want details about anything on the pages.

Here's a video about fun and creative ways to use the seam-binding ribbon.

These are graduation cards I made for my worship team high school grads. The one on the left is almost an exact copy from the Pemberley page in the Idea Book. I added the AP rose and a Zip strip on Indian Corn Blue card stock.
The middle uses Victory paper on Bamboo cards stock. The tag is cut out with the AP Cricut cartridge. The words are CTMH Rub-on letters. Accents are chocolate ribbon, buttons, waxy flax and Durable Studs. The stars are sponged Dimensional Elements.
The far right card uses Cruisin' paper, Hooray Bouquet, Field Trip Alphabet numbers and the little words are from the Keepsake Alphabet. The bling are the Opaques Gems in Licorice. The hat is an old Stampin' Up one. I added grey Baker's Twine for the tassel. (I got the tassel idea from another consultant but I can't remember her name. Sorry!)
And yes, they are shaped this way because they'll have money in them. :-)

I am thinking of starting a Girls' Scrapbook Club. If you have a girl that is 9 to early teen and likes to scrapbook please contact me. At each meeting we would complete 2 12x12 scrapbook pages for $10. If the girls have interest we can branch out and make Mini-albums or cards too. How often we meet is up to you! No commitment at this point. We'll just give it a try and see if everyone likes it.
I'm open to the possibility of doing separate club for younger girls but would probably need to get their moms involved too. (-: Let me know if you're interested in either of these ideas.

This is the layout we made at Club last week using the Lucy Paper Pack. We used hexagons cut out on the Cricut. The stamped flowers are Hooray Bouquet. We dyed the Seam-binding ribbon using Sweet Leaf ink. Both layout patterns are found in Reflections. Our next Club meeting is June 5th. We'll be using Superhero. If you are interested in joining, please let me know at least a week before we meet.

Take a look at this video about the Constant Campaign that starts on April 17th. I know you'll want to start planning your orders to include this fun and pretty paper. It's really a great deal!
