What I LOVE about CTMH




Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

Who are the Stampers with Attitude????  This is the team led by my upline Kimberly Moss!!!

If you are coming here from my dear friend Denise's Blog you are on the right path. 

January's theme is What I LOVE about CTMH!


There are SO MANY things I LOVE about CTMH, but what I love the most are the people, specifically, my TEAM!


In October of 2013, I went to the CTMH Album retreat in Salt Lake City, UT.  Several of my teammates and friends were there that weekend and we had a blast.  Not only did we have fun as a group, but we created a beautiful 11 layout album full of amazing art, fun techniques and memories to treasure for years.  


Here's the Studio J (another thing I LOVE) layout that I created with photos we took there



And here's a layout from our day spent walking around Temple Square in SLC.  




CTMH is having another Album Retreat in November 2015 and I cannot wait to attend :)  

Hop on over to my friend and teammate Cat's Blog to see what she LOVES!

Christmas Ornament Shadow Box

Do you make your own Christmas Decorations??

I want to share with you an easy project I created for my Christmas decor this year!  A Christmas Ornament ShadowBox, two actually :)

I used an 8x8 shadowbox frame I found at Michaels, and small ornaments that I found at Target.  I added a piece of patterned paper to the back of the frame, placed the ornaments inside, then added "Merry & Bright" cut from Artiste in white vinyl on the top of the glass.  



Super easy and fun project.  

What have YOU created for your Christmas Decor???

Seasonal Expressions Blog Hop



Welcome to our Seasonal Expressions Blog Hop!  Today we are featuring artwork created with products from Close To My Heart's new Seasonal Expressions Book.   We have over 30 Consultants participating in this circular hop so when you get back to me, you will know you have visited all of the blogs!  If you came from Kelly's blog you are on the right track!  If you get lost along the way you can find the entire participating hoppers HERE.

Today I want to share with you my SHE-art!  I created this at the CTMH Team Builders event last month and I absolutely love it!  When Jill from CTMH set out all our supplies and showed us examples, I was excited to give this a try :)  I love the way it turned out, for my first try!




I started with a 6x6 Canvas, added Heartstrings Paper to the background, along with some Paper Fundamentals in Juniper.  I used more of the Heartstrings paper to create my girl, both her face and her dress.  I cut the sun from Brushed papers.  I then stamped some of the Assorted Edges in Black and Distressed Backgrounds in Lagoon.  I cut out a heart in Cotton Candy Paper Fundamentals, and a baseball out of Chalk It Up papers.  I added red and black shimmer trim, Silver Sequins, Bitty Bling and a Crown charm to embellish.  Lastly, I hand doodled with a black journaling pen.  


My SHE-art says "She dreams big"


Now hop on over to Nikka's blog and see what she has created!
