Here's a photo of the other 3 items I created for the new product swap.

There's a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 BBQ invitation using the honey lace paper from the Jubilee paper pack (x7181B) and the Fancy Fair stamp set (B1440).

A 3"x3" card using Kraft Cardstock (z1375), Ruby Washi Tape (Z1933) and the Made From Scratch stamp set (C1582).

There's also a muslin drawstring bag (z1822) that can be used as a goodie bag for a birthday party, or you could put a few homemade cookies or candies in to give to a friend just because.

ENJOY!! Visit my website to shop for your supplies to make these and lots more great cards, scrapbook pages and home decor items. There's a "shop now" link to the right of my blog homepage. There's an "idea book" link on the left side of the homepage for you to view the idea book. If you'd like a hard copy of the newest idea book, please contact me and I'll get one to you!

I'll post pics of more new items and ideas as I get them created.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Good Morning!!
I apologize for my long absence on here. Some personal things happened in September that sent me spinning emotionally for a while. Then the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays came along. We are now in the middle of Mardi Gras season in which Bart & Kelly both ride. There were formal balls for both of their krewes, a wedding coming up this Friday in New Orleans.

I am participating in a swap with 6 other CTMH Consultants for items using NEW PRODUCTS from the brand new CTMH Idea Book. I've finished and shipped one paper pack set that I signed up for and with all the busy stuff going on around here, I forgot to take pictures :( I just finished the 12x12 layouts for the 2nd paper pack called JUBILEE. I took pics of those!!!

Top image is the left page and second image is the right side of the double page layout. The post it notes are there to offer guidance for photos and/or journaling. These pages would be great for your high school student who is raising an animal for FFA or here in Houston, Rodeo pages. So many possibilities for this paper pack!!

When I get the cards and the gift bag done, I'll post those pics here.
I hope you have a great day and also the rest of the week!!

I wasn't thrilled with that first waterless snow globe that I shared with you. So, I tried again! And I'm much happier with this version!!

I used a glass cupcake server from Hobby Lobby this time. The stamp set is CTMH Christmas Village D1554. I used CTMH watercolor pencils (3505) to color the images, CTMH liquid appliqué (z308) for the snow on the buildings, CTMH glitz glitter gel Stardust (z1313) to add some sparkle. I also randomly applied stardust glitter gel directly to the top of the cupcake dome to mimic icicles and then sprinkled Waterfall Stickles fine glitter. There's a circle of a glittered snow blanket in the bottom of the base to look like snow. I used CTMH liquid glass (z679) to adhere the pieces to the glass dome. Liquid Glass dries clear so that you don't see it from the outside of the dome. Everything is adhered on the inside of the glass dome.
I hope you enjoy this project!! If you have any questions or want to order the supplies (except the cupcake server), just comment here or email me. I'd love to help you get one put together for your family to enjoy!!
See you next time!!

My creative mojo is sloooowwly coming back from its vacation! Thank goodness!!

Here's a card I put together this morning using Cashmere, Gypsy, Barn Red, Pear & Sunset inks, Huntington Paper Pack and colonial white card stock. I also used the September stamp of the month from Close To My Heart, Poster Tidings S1309.

I'm thinking I might link this to the Heart 2 Heart  group's challenge to use all those colors in a project of some kind.
I hope you enjoy the card pic! Let me know if you'd like to get the info on how to get your Poster Tidings stamp set. It has a Christmas poster tidings stamp too! You can get the 2 piece set for $5 with a $50 purchase.

I promised I'd post photos of the snow globe project that I was working on last week. I've worked on it and worked on it. I'm still not totally happy with it but thought I'd go ahead and post the pics and ask for suggestions of what I need to do to it.

There you go! I've got a different shaped glass globe that I'm going to play with tomorrow. Hopefully I'll like it better.
Tell me what you think and give suggestions for improvement if you want. I'm open for any suggestions!
The CTMH stamp sets that I used are Candyland D1557 and Always Grateful C1559 for the trees.
I'll chat with you later! Have a great week!!
