I made the Top Ten at H2H!

Wow! I am still pretty new to this whole world of blogging and participating in challenges, but I can safely say, I love the challenges! They are so much fun and so inspirational to see what everyone comes up with. Imagine my surprise to receive an email that I am among the Top Ten for the month of January over at H2H! I appreciate the challenges so much, and I am so glad that others are enjoying my artwork too. I know I benefit so much from what others share, so I am glad to be able to participate, and very honoured that the ladies at H2H like what they see. So thank you, H2H!

Here is the card the Design Team recognized as part of the Top Ten....

Thanks so much, H2H! Keep on posting such great challenges! Happy Scrapping!

H2H: For the One You Love

So, the challenge over at Heart 2 Heart this week was to create something for the one you love. Since I have already made a multitude of Valentine cards, and some adorable Valentine-themed layouts, I decided to make an all-occasion card that I can use some other time to show someone I love just how much. I pulled out my favourite paper pack of all time (Cherry-O) and made this cute little card:

Simple, but cute, right?

CTMH products used to create this card include:

Chocolate Ink
Cherry-O WOTG Stamp Set

It was another great sketch this week over at Mojo Monday. Thanks again for the inspiration...

Something about this sketch made me want to make a masculine card, so I went through my stash and found some left over bits and pieces of the retired CTMH It's a Guy Thing paper pack. And this is what I came up with...

Moondoggie Layout

I know this CTMH paper has long retired, but I am still on my "using up my stash" kick! It's fun to dig out these tried-and-true favourites and mix them up with some of my brand new embellishments! The layout is based on a great sketch from the fabulous site Let's Scrap (thanks ladies!!). Here is the sketch I used...

And here is a layout for pictures from my upcoming trip to Florida using Moondoggie paper...

I added some new CTMH embellishments, like the Persnickety Journalling Dimensional Elements, Milepost shapes, Creme Brulee Baker's Twine, Bronze Glitter Glitz Gel, and Cranberry Pleated Ribbon to complete the layout. The only non-CTMH item I used were the letters for the title which are K and Company.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrapping!

The New Idea Book is LIVE!

The day you have all been waiting for is here! The new Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book is now viewable online and LIVE to customers!

If you have yet to pick up your copy from me, you can view it online by visiting my website at, and click on "Products" on the left hand side. You will not be disappointed!

There are some fabulous changes you will notice as you flip through the beautiful artwork in the Idea Book. Prices are now matched to US prices, and prices on just about EVERYTHING have COME DOWN, making CTMH the best value out there. The new paper kits are gorgeous and there are so many new products to tell you about! Among my favourite is the Baker's Twine in two different colour assortments (on page 124).

Another awesome change is the Stamp of the Month program. You can purchase the SOTM for the regular price of $17.95, or spend $50 and get the SOTM for $5! The value just keeps getting better...
