Layouts using the "Designers Eye" template from CTMH's CHERISH book

These next two layouts were created so quickly. I simply used CTMH's Cherish Scrapbooking Program and chose the "Designers Eye" layout on page 71. Combined with our stunning MRK Paper Packs and some accessories, these layouts came together in no time and are so cute. ENJOY!

Some recent layouts my scrap class ladies have been creating...

Happy Halloween!!

Aren't these cards so cute. They were made by my two friend Wendy Coffman and Linnea Schmidlin. I love them! They are the best Halloween cards I have received in awhile. And the coolest part is that they are both made using the CTMH October Word Puzzle stamp set. CTMH's "Word Puzzle" stamp sets are such a great deal. You get anywhere from 20-28 stamps in a set that includes everything related to a specific theme or time, like October, for only $22.95. They are my favorite stamps in the catalog and I am collecting them all. E-mail me if you would like to find out how you too can collect them all at a GREAT PRICE! Tina

More Christmas Cards

I thought I would share a few more christmas cards I have been working on and receiving. The top card is called "Santa's Flight" from the NEW CTMH Fall catalog. I also used the current Creative Basics Paper Kit called "Evensong". You can't tell from the picture very well, but Santa and his sleigh are popped off the card and glittered. It's a very whimsical card for the holidays. ENJOY!

What does it mean to Scrapbook?

I read this great poem on another blog and thought there words were SO true.
Scrapbooking is so much more than glueing pictures and papers to a is creating a lasting record of the Love & Life of a family....that is why I scrapbook. Enjoy!

Scrapbooker's Verse

We gather up pictures
and bits of our past
and scrapbook them into
a gift that will last.

We write about milestones
and travels and such--
the times of our lives
that we treasure so much.

A few special photos,
a family tree,
a few thoughtful words
and soon we will see...

The album we've made
is much more than a book.
It's worth even more
than the time that it took.

It's a gift holding memories
and made with great care
by hearts and hands
with love to share.

Holiday Wishes.........for peace, joy and happiness!

Aren't these cards so pretty! They look like they took me so long to create, when in reality, I made them all within about an hour! How?? Well, I cheated! Ha!! I used Close To My Hearts holiday wishes card kit. Everything needed to create these fun cards was in the kit, pre-stamped and ready to go. It was so fun. And this isn't the only kit we sell. We have 3 Christmas kits and tons of other ones as well. To see samples of the newest kit, visit my website. Enjoy!

Christmas is in the least for me anyway!

Look at these beautiful Christmas cards made by my friends Hayley and Nancy. They did such a great job and I love the paper. These 2 patterns actually come from CTMH's newest Christmas Creative Basics kit. This kit includes 24 sheets of these B&TP plus 8 yards of Olive Grosgrain Ribbon. I love it. I have made some cute scrapbook pages with it as well. I will have to get those posted as soon as I take some pictures. ENJOY!
