4 season calendar

I cannot get the three other pics to load for this calendar so here is the winter page only for now. Got the idea from LeeAnn Greff
Will try to load the other ones when I get back from our weekend.  REadlly cute idea I just adapted with our CTMH stamps. This is a tent type card with winter on this side and spring on the back- then you flip it to the back and summer and fall are there.  Fun and easy.  You could certainly adapt any seasonal stamps to this idea.

New Products for CTMH


Are you ready for new products from Close To My Heart in January? Well here is a sneak peek of what is coming (pic above). The Workshop on the Go Kit is called Wings. It is fabulous!  I love it! Did you notice the new alphabet.. it's called Bohemian Alphabet. I can't wait to try that one out.

Starting January 1st you can order from the new Inspirations brochure that is in place for the month of January until the new bigger, and even better bi-annual Close To My Heart 2011 spring/summer idea book comes out in February. Just visit my website to order starting January 1st.

Now I'll let you in on a huge savings coming January.... If you order this NEW Wings Workshop on the Go Kit in January, plus 4 other items in the brochure (which by the way are majorly discounted when you buy the kit) then you get the Stamp of the Month for FREE. How cool is that? You don't even have to spend much to get it.

Here is an example of how not to break the bank but still get the FREE stamp set:
Workshop on the Go Kit $29.95
NEW Pleated Ribbon $4.95
My Stickease $4.95
NEW A Game stamp set $5.00 (discounted pricing)
My Creations Pennants Banner $5.95
TOTAL: $50.80 US (before tax & s/h)

Bet you can't wait till January 1st!

Foil embossed card

Yes- we used aluminum foil and ran it through the Big Shot for this card to emboss it. You do need to use heavy duty foil for this.  It came out pretty neat. It is done with Stampin' Up stamps- the dove and words are heat embossed with silver.

Thanksgiving card

I made this one at my friend Christine's house at her monthly stamp club- she's an SU consultant. The stamp is a large stamp that you stamp several times and cut out the parts you want to layer. Don't know the name of the set.

Dahlia fold flower

This flower was done with CTMH silhouette papers. It is one of my favorite paper packs. It's retired now. I did this using a dahlia fold with 8 circles and then you put them all together to create this flower.  Clear as mud, right? Not sure I can explain it here but here's a link to a splitcoast stampers tutorial.
 It is an easy fold and you can create  beautiful flowers. Depending on the size circles you can create these as large or small as you like. The smaller you go though the harder it is to fold the paper.

Fall cards- two versions

I don't think I ever posted the last card for my November club. I had done two versions. Then I picked my favorite to do for club. They use all CTMH products. Colors are barn red, pear and sunset. I random stamped the top part of the page and used the pear and barn red cardstock for the bottom halves. The leaf stamps are from the CTMH workshop on the go set using Olivia papers. Some ribbon and mocha opaques complete the accessories.  We wound up doing the top card for club.

Triangle treat boxes

Here's a set of triangle treat boxes. I found the directions online (can't remember where) and it was really pretty easy. I love the little Santa hat one. I put some white fun flock on the band of his hat to give it some dimension. The tree was fun too- lots of bling for ornaments. They aren't sealed closed- you can untie the ribbon at the top and add some goodies.

The third Christmas purse

This is the third purse from Becky Roberts pattern.
Here's the last purse I made for the gift exchange. It is from CTMH emporium papers and I used some copper brads and the mocha opaques for the closure. I did make a set of 3x3 cards and envelopes to go in this one as well.

Christmas gifts again

Here's the 2nd purse from the Becky Roberts pattern. Again not CTMH paper but the little pearls along the top edge  are our new opaques.  Once again 3x3 cards fit in this nicely. I did make a set of 4 matching cards with envelopes to go in this one.

Christmas gifts

Our CTMH team Christmas party was a blast- we do a gift exchange and we have to make the item we bring. So every year I try to do something different and fun. This year I made a variety of paper purses and containers for holding gift items. I took pics of some of them and will share them in the next few days.
The first is a purse- not from CTMH paper (the accessories are CMTH products) and was done with a pattern done by Becky Roberts(a SU consultant). It came out so cute and is the perfect size for 3x3 cards or some little gift items. I filled it with candy.

Will you Get a Sticky Boy ?

During December, CTMH is running the Plenty for Twenty campaign – when you place a $20 order on my website, CTMH will throw in a D-size stamp set…absolutely FREE! Which D-size stamp set? Who knows….it’s a surprise! At a $22.95 value – it’s a great surprise!
And now…Sticky Boy may be coming to your house for the holidays! In random Plenty for Twenty orders throughout December, CTMH will add a stowaway….a free Sticky Boy! Sticky Boy is available in a variety of sizes, in his own packaging, and he’s a stamp that can’t be ordered. Let me share some history of Sticky Boy.
  • In 2004, Sticky Boy appeared as the star of a video presentation at the introduction of My Acrylix stamps to the CTMH product line. 
  • Sticky Boy appeared at CTMH National Tours and Regional Celebrations and even wore a Tuxedo at the 2006 CTMH Convention Award Gala.
  • David Lynton (who runs the warehouse and is the husband of our CEO Jeanette Lynton) got the idea to start producing and hiding Sticky Boy around any event venue we went to….it’s a crazy phenomenon…imagine thousands of women, scouring every window, mirror, sticky surface to see if they can find a Sticky Boy! I found one in Florida on a staffer's name tag. I just missed one in DC on the side of a couch. 
  • At the 2010 CTMH Convention, David Lynton presented one to Anita Renfroe…who did a whole segment on Sticky Boy and then proceeded to tuck him into her bra where he could always be “Close To My Heart.”
  • Now….Sticky Boy is hiding in random boxes from Plenty for Twenty website orders….will you get one? (all info thanks to Helen Onulak)
For the Plenty for Twenty campaign, you can order anything for the $20…paper, embellishments, stamps, albums or more.  Head on over to my website to get started and maybe Sticky Boy will surprise you!

More of All Decked Out

Here are three more cards using a stamp set called All Decked Out from CTMH. I did get several layout ideas for the cards from other consultants.  It is so great that folks are willing to share their ideas.

3rd November club card

Here's the last one for now- am hoping to post the last two very soon.  My lighting was not very good so it looks kind of washed out, sorry.  The bottom patterned paper is done using a knife pleat.  All Olivia papers and sunset ink. The saying is from the old CTMH months set for November. The little flower stamp is from The Present.  I think in the final club card we may use opaques instead of the pear brads.  Or I could give them the choice.

Here is the second November club card. It uses CTMH Olivia papers and sunset ink. I used copper CTMH bitty brads and some ribbon from Joann's. The saying is from the old November month stamp set and the image on the rosette is from The Present.

Olivia cards

I am working on my stamp club cards for November. I am teaching some paper folding techniques.  The papers are Olivia and I used sunset and cocoa inks. The main stamp set is The Present. Here's one and I will post the next two on Monday and Tuesday.  I have two more to come up with- am hoping to do those tomorrow night.  All CTMH materials were used.

Some birthday cards

These were all done using the CTMH Perfect Day papers.  I do remember that pack because we used it at the first CTMH convention I attended in Florida.  The two star stamps sets are some of my favorite sets. The nail heads on the last card shown are not CTMH but most everything else is. They are not nail heads really - they are flat metal pieces with different designs on the tops. A mini glue dot fits perfect under them! I found them in with my sewing supplies- so who knows how long I've had them or where I got them. But they really are a great accent.

And even more oldies but goodies
