Look What I Got!!!

After coming home from a miserable day at work I found a package at my door! To my surprise it was a package filled with goodies made by my friend Lorraine who lives in Utah. Lorraine is a sister CTMH consultant and a GREAT artist! Check out what she made:

This 2 page layout and cards are made with the paper packet Veranda, isn't it georgeous? I think so!

This 2 page layout and cards were made using the paper packet Topstich

The last card is a monochromatic card using the new stamp set Enjoy Every Moment!

Thank you so much Lorraine for sending me these great day brighteners! Doesn't this just want to make you get out all of your stamping and scraping stuff and start creating? I know I want to do that!

January Stamp Of The Month

Check out what I got from my friend Tammy! She sent me what we call a "Demo Board In A Bag!" A demo board in a bag is art work that you can use to show customers our great products! Tammy used the January stamp of the month which is called "True Friends" and it is a great set of frames and sayings and can be seen on the last page of the new spring idea book. She used the new paper packet called Veranda which has a great color pallet of Creme Brulee, Cocoa, Garden Green and Juniper. I just LOVE this paper packet!

This is a 2 page 12 x 12 layout

Here's a close up of some of the new Just Blooms Paper Flowers that she used.

These Flowers also come with sweet little butterflies! What a great addition to this layout!

2 Cards

Here's a very cute little scrapbook she made to go along with everything too!

Here's an open view of this great little book

This is a true RAK (random act of kindness) I had no idea that she was sending this to me and it just showed up in the mail one day! There is nothing as fun as coming home from a long day at work to find something like this waiting for you! Thanks again Tammy for this you are truly a one of a kind friend and so very talented too!!
