2011's First Snow Storm

OMG can you believe it another snow storm? Haven't we had enough yet? I guess not! We are in the midst of the biggest snow storm of 2011 and hopefully the only one we get this year! How's that for optimistic thinking! ha ha ha

We are supposed to get 12 - 20 inches of snow and it isn't supposed to stop until around noon tomorrow! Driving to work tomorrow will be quite the challenge!

Thank goodness for home owners associations that means no shoveling for us!!!

Stay warm!

February Stamp Club Cards

Here are the cards that we will be making at club this month. I used the new paper packet called "Bliss" and this paper would be GREAT for weddings, anniversary or anything you need to add that touch of elegance! The card designs that I used are from some very talented CTMH consultants, Jill Belkin, Sue Laufer and Beth Naumann.

If you are not part of my club but would like to make these cards, read below and you too can get these as a kit.

Kit of the Month

If you can't make it to club or you would like to have extra cards on hand, you can purchase the card kits to make on your own at home. I will be offering three kits:

  • Kit 1 will have everything stamped and all you have to do is put them together. $6
  • Kit 2 everything you need to make these cards including any or all of the stamp sets I have used. Prices will vary depending on price of stamp sets used.
  • Kit 3 is just the pieces and accessories to make the cards and you will use your own stamp sets. $6

All of these kits come with content list, directions and colored photos of the finished cards (see sample). There is no shipping cost if picked up at next club otherwise if I ship them I will add in the shipping cost. Kits will be sent out the last day of each month so I you will need to order the kits by club night 2/16/11 so that I can order and prep your kits! Please note that substitutions may be made based on availability of product. Kits will be mailed out the end of the month.

Friendship Art Work

As promised here is the art work that I designed for a demo board swap with some other CTMH consultants. This really is a very nice set to work with and I just love the color combination that I used.
This is the left page of the 12x12 layout from
The new Magic Book

This is the right page of the 12x12 layout

This is a 6x6 card

This is a 5x7 card

This is a 3x3 card
Sorry my photos aren't the greatest and I am going to have to work on my lighting but I think you can get the idea of how beautiful these turned out. I am also using the new "Sweetheart" B&T papers.

Happy Stamping!

February Stamp Of The Month

Once again a new month brings us a new stamp of the month and this is a great stamp set about friendship! Do you send your BFF a hand made card telling them just how much they mean to you? If not you should and this stamp set will help you get the job done!

This stamp set is called "Friendship" and it truly is a great set. It almost reminds me of my grandmother's wall paper and that brings back so many great memories! I can see a TON of ideas using this set to make your very own background and texture paper using tone on tone stamping.
This set, like all of the stamp of the month sets, are only available through the end of the month. You can get this set for full price, at a discount or even FREE! Check out the last page of the current catalog for all the details. If you don't have a catalog, call or e-mail me for a copy today!
Keep checking back, I have great art work samples using this great set and I will be posting them later this week!
