11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
513 High Street South
(The Old DAT'S Scrapbooking Store.)

Come on in! The front door will be unlocked. This project should only take you 10 minutes or less.

For this 6 x 6 layout, I used CTMH's Timberline Paper Packet with CTMH's Chocolate & Slate cardstocks.

To embellish the layout, I used CTMH's Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut out a 3 inch, 1.5 inch and 1 inch star.

I used CTMH's Flight of the Arrows and You've Got a Friend - May Stamp of the Month stamp sets with CTMH's Chocolate and Cocoa inks.

Photo Size: 3 x 4 Vertical

For those of you who only make cards, you can easily make this into a 6 x 6 Friendship Card.

Quick & Simple Masculine Card

Snow Day in Thunder Bay!

Yes, you read correctly. All school buses and rural schools were cancelled today. This is the 3rd Snow Day this month that my daughter has had.

Anyways, I apologize for my lack of posting lately. I am still fighting with my concussion; which means I can't spend much time in my scrap room or doing anything for that matter. The more I move and the more I think, the more sick I get. Reading is the worse thing for me to do right now...instant nausea. 

So, I spend most of my days on a couch drinking David's Tea, watching t.v. and my real excitement comes when I get to attend one of my many doctor's appointments.

I won't give up trying to get a card done here and there. I made this card in under an hour. That includes no preconceived idea for the card. Searching for the stamps and papers to use and designing from scratch.

I am happy with what I came up with. This was for one of my young adult male cousin's birthday.

I used CTMH's ProPlayer Paper Packet with CTMH's Ruby & Slate cardstock.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's ProPlayer Assortment.

I also used CTMH's Maximum Power, One-Way Borders & Banner Wishes stamp sets with CTMH Black Ink.

Noel Washi Tape Card

Here is my last 2012 catch up blog post.

I used CTMH's Sparkle & Shine Paper Packet with CTMH's Cocoa, Ruby, Whisper & Slate cardstocks.

To embellish the card, I used the CTMH's Artiste Cricut Cartridge for all the die-cuts on the front of the card and CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the baubles on the inside of the card & CTMH's Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape.

I also used CTMH's Trim the Tree, Stitch Wonder & Frosted stamp sets with CTMH Cocoa & Juniper inks.

The brad in the middle of the bow was covered in washi tape and for the bauble I used the reverse cut-out and not the actual bauble cut-out. The CTMH Whisper cardstock behind the bauble reverse cut-out was covered in washi tape. The border stripe behind the bow & the "photo corners" are also washi tape.

This was the final card that I made with my 2012 Stamping Groups.

Merry & Bright All Night Christmas Card

Happy Fool's Day!

Where I live, this card isn't really out of season, we still have quite a bit of snow.

For this simple Christmas Card, I used CTMH's Frosted Paper Packet with CTMH Whisper cardstock and CTMH Colonial White Card Bases.

To embellish the card, I used CTMH's Baker's Twine that came in the Frosted Cardmaking Kit.

I used CTMH's Quick Cards - Bright All Night and Wintry Wishes Hostess stamp sets. I also used the stamp set that came with the Frosted Cardmaking Kit with CTMH Whisper ink.
