Snowing and Cold outside...

Snowing and cold outside so time to play!  I love Chelsea Gardens paper which is in the newest CTMH catalog.

I made quite a few of the butterflies in the circle cut out so I had to come up with something to do with all those circles.  This is one idea...

Another technique I have wanted to try ... Cut out part of a design to color, then put it back in!

Back to playing since it is still snowing.  Happy crafting all!!!

Winter Blues

There seems to be a short break in the "Winter Blues" here in the northeast!  Mid 30's seems like spring compared to last week when it was below 0 for most of the week!!!  So time to get out those new papers and flower stamps and create some cards!  I have fallen in love with Chelsea Gardens paper and coordinating stamp sets.

I am now ready for SPRING!  
I love the Chelsea Garden Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts too and I added some Shimmer Brush to the butterfly.  You know I need a little sparkle!  I also used Thin Cuts - Scallop Border on the front of the card.  If you like flowers, butterflies and spring colors check out these products on my website.

Happy 2018

Happy 2018 to all!  Last year was a difficult year with the illness then loss of my mother.  Being an only child I held the responsibility of taking care of things.  Thank heavens I have six wonderful children who helped out!  Things have settled down for the most part.  The last piece is to get her house, which is now mine, sold.  In addition to all of that my computer crashed. That has been replaced and is back up and working.  The last piece to reinstall was my digital photo programs that hold over 11,000 photos.  That is now back in business.  Thank heavens for all those clouds that hold out information!  I hope we never run out of cloud space!

Now is the time to get back into the swing of things.  We have not had much snow in central PA but it sure has been cold.  Great time to stay indoors and craft!  There are two new catalogs.

                                               Annual Inspirations Catalog 2017-July 2018

For National Papercrafting Month, Close To My Heart designed a set of beautiful papercrafted monograms. Each comes as part of a kit containing the sturdy chipboard letter base, rose gold accents, die-cut floral embellishments, and letter stickers for customizing your final artwork piece. The finished letters are the perfect size for adorning any wall in your home.
These versatile letters can also be used together to spell out a whole name or word, which is why if you buy five letter kits, you can choose a sixth kit FREE!
You can also receive your choice of letter kit free by hosting a qualifying party in January or by signing up to be a Consultant!

Don't forget about the Stamp of the Month for January!   

Last but not least is my schedule for monthly workshops.  I hope to see you at an upcoming workshop and I always welcome new faces so spread the word!

Remember to Enjoy Life's Moments!  Happy Scrappin'
