Close To My Heart : This Moment (January Stamp of the Month)


I'm so glad you've joined us on this month's stamp of the month blog hop with nearly 60 CTMH consultants.

If you've found my page by way of Melissa's blog- you're heading in the right direction.  If you're just starting the hop here on my page- that's ok too.  You should be able to circle around the entire hop no matter where you start (next link is at the bottom of this post.)

Here's the fun part:

This month's set can be yours for only $5!  Just place an order of $50 or more in retail product and you'll be prompted to add the set.  Don't need to spend $50?  The set can be purchased individually for $17.95.

Isn't it soooo fun?  I love this month's set.  I know it would be awesome for a layout or cards.  I decided however, that I wanted to create some custom Picture My Life "style" cards.  Last month I created a lot of artwork with the Heartstring PML cards and thought this set would make some great accessory cards.  Here's 4 to get your creative juices flowing.
my favorite of course is the bottom left glittery card.  All of these would be great additions to your pocket layouts, traditional layout or even cards.
Check back soon to see a layout I've created using some of these (just waiting on my photos to add)
Now head over to Michelle's page to see what she's whipped up for us to see!

CTMH color chart... new series.


I'm so glad you stopped by.  I'm sharing some news!  I'll be starting a new "color chart" series weekly in the new year.

It'll look something like this:

I LOVE to play around with color and try new palettes.  I hope you'll check back soon.  It'll probably be a weekend post- I'll see how the timing goes and try to stick to ABOUT the same time each week. 

The reason I've decided to do this is because sometimes, the lighting I have available is a little off and my colors don't show true to form (working on that too).  The color chart will give you a better idea of how they should look ;)

I've posted the card above before... so if it looks familiar that's why.  I was just testing it out with this template I found on the web.  (If I remember where- I'll post the link :) )

Supplies used:  CTMH Cricut Artbooking, cardstock in various colors listed, glitter paper, red shimmer trim

A quick how to of reinkers and the spray pen

This short video by CTMH explains how best to use our reinkers and spray pen.

For your info:  I fill the spray pen to line 2 with reinker and line 7 with water/ rubbing alcohol.  I find that gives me the closest color match to the cardstock.

Snowhaven CTMH page kit

This month my classes featured the Snowhaven Paper pack and complements.  This simple layout goes together so fast and simple!
If you'd like to create this layout, all you need is the Snowhaven paper , Snowhaven complements, twine and black ink.  Also, I like to adhere my complements with liquid glass as tape adhesive doesn't tend to hold chipboard forever.
If you're interested in purchasing this page kit and having it shipped to you... $13.00 would cover the cost of precut papers, full complement pack, a foot of twine and shipping to you.  Email me here to order.

one month later...

wow! the last month has flown by... I can't believe I missed a month of posting.

I thought I'd pop in and share a photo of recent card class projects:
I created about 12 card designs total (or more?)  so I'll share more photos this week.
I just love creating handmade cards and gifts for the holidays (which is why I've been MISSING) for the past month ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
