and happiness as you enjoy the richness of our great 
country and the freedoms that we share together.

July Jubilee

Embroidery Hoop Display

This is my take on the embroidery hoop on page 17 in the current
Spring/Summer Idea Book. I used the back side of the Jubilee Textiles
to give a softer look. The hexagons are stamped second generation
Topiary and Indian Corn Blue for the softer color tones. You can 
make one for yourself when you join us at the July Jubilee Workshop.
You can view the workshop Here.
CTMH Supplies:
Textiles: Jubilee
Cardstock: White Daisy
Stamps: Honeycomb, Love Life
Ink: Topiary, Indian Corn Blue, Honey
Embellishments: Garden Wooden Shapes, Chantilly Assortment, Paradise Flowers,
                         Topiary Chevron Ribbon
Other: 5" wooden embroidery hoop

Out With the Old

To Make Room for the New
With my first annual Card Buffet coming soon I'm sharing some 
of the old that will be leaving my craft room to make room for the new 
CTMH products coming in the first Annual Inspirations Idea Book.
Remember the Typeset Paper Pack and those
wonderful collections of assorted buttons. Gotta go
to make room for the new goodies.
Some more Typeset mixed with Moonlight and those 
crazy Milepost shapes make a nice birthday card
And we don't want to forget Fanfare with the 
reversible red and blue prints
And who could forget those cute little critters that
came along with the Hooligans paper pack.

So much for the trip down memory lane. I'm looking forward to all
those partaking in the card buffet and helping me make
room for the new goodies coming our way. See you soon.

Out with the Old to make room for the New. With the release of the new 
Annual Inspirations 2014-2015 Idea Book comes plenty of new products

the stamping done. You just choose your item, pick up the parts and
put them together. You can view the items that have been designed so
far and get the details HERE. I will be making more in the next few weeks.

Out With the Old

To Make Room for the New
In anticipation of the arrival of the new  Annual Inspiration for 2014-2015 
I've been working on cards for my Card Buffet event in June. I'm trying 
to use up my old CTMH products to make room for the new products 
coming in August. So when I came across a retired stamp set from 
Spring of 2013 the seed packet, the flowers, and the bee seemed just 
perfect for the "In the Garden" challenge at Heart 2 Heart
I'm trying to use up my old retired papers at the buffet so I used B&T 
paper from the 2012 Scholastic paper pack for the base of my card.
Now it's your turn to share your "In the Garden" creation 
with us at Heart 2 Heart.
