Christmas in April...

Some SCS friends (Hi Girls!!) have a monthly challenge to complete 5 Christmas cards per month so we're in decent shape come December. They can be the same or not. Let's face it, the assembly line method is my friend. I try for a different card each month, but I do 5 or more of them. I completed these tonight, just under the wire for April's "deadline."
CTMH products: Jingle B&T papers, Tulip ink, Tulip chalk, Creme Brulee CS, Juniper CS.
Sentiment: Unknown.

What do you think?

As always, thanks for looking!

Finally, a layout!

Mike told me to "pick any place (you) want to go" when we were talking about honeymoons before our wedding. After a few minutes of thought I settled on Rome (did I mention that I'm spolied, lol?!) This Cherish layout was perfect for an "overview." The papers are from several companies but not CTMH. I think the new Passages papers & coordinating stamps are screaming for me to print some more photos from this adventure!

To be honest, I think I could do it better with CTMH products, but it didn't turn out too badly. What do you think?

As always, thanks for looking!

Tile Coasters

Any HS teacher in NY will tell you that late April starts the "final push" toward the Regents Exams. My review goes into full swing starting tomorrow. Getting ready has kept me busy, left me no time to be creative, and forced me to neglect my poor blog.

I made this as gifts for people at work, some family, and a few friends this past Christmas. The butterfiles are a retired CTMH set, the script is SU!.

I'll try to have something newly created to share next time! As always, thanks for lookinng!

"I'm a little jealous"

This is how Mike responded to me listing the various days that I would be at scrap events this month. They're always on Friday nights, and I have 3 events to attend monthly. One is not mine, and I don't like to miss it. One is my monthly Christmas Card club, and even he agrees I can't skip that. One is a monthly layout "class" at my place. And every other month I go to a 4th event. Friday used to be "date night." He has a valid point about my "yenta schedule," as he would call it!

In response, I have revised the monthly layout "class." I think it's better for everyone. It's $20, and for that you get a CTMH Level II paper pack of your choice, a template for 6 layouts, and a cutting guide to make those layouts as shown. Everything is delivered to your door/email. Every few months the local gals can get together over here and "finish those layouts!" Cuts down on Fridays I'm booked, cuts down on finding a sitter so often, and allows everyone to pick the pack(s) that suits their own styles. There's a new set of templates each month with a cutting guide specific to them, you can participate when you want - it isn't a "club" so there are no obligations. You can order the extra embellishments for the pack (additonal cost)...or not.

What do you think?

(BTW, since the CTMH order is sent right to you you don't have to be local to if you ever feel like joining in just send me an email and I'll give you the details you'll need!)

As always, thanks for looking! Hope to have a creation to share next time!
