CTMH February Blog Hop: Friendship

Smiley from
That sound means it time to start another Close To My Heart Blog Hop!

And there is no shortage of ideas and inspirations from this month's group of CTMH consultants. If you're following the hop, you should be coming from Nicole's Blog. If I'm your first stop, then welcome and let's get with the art, shall we?

This month, CTMH is featuring this beautiful stamp set, Friendship:

And what a great time to get this set! Celebrate your special friendships all month long!

Look and see a couple of cards I created with it:

Stamps: CTMH Friendship (February 2011 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH Chocolate, Grey Flannel
Papers: CTMH Bliss Reflections Kit
Accessories: CTMH Colonial White Ribbon Collection, Basic Assortments Buttons

This card is going to a wonderful friend who really brightened my weekend. Smiley from

I love sets that come with great sentiments like this one. It gives me a chance to Smiley from cut apart my stamps and use them creatively. Here I inked the different fonts in different colors to add interest to the focal point. If you haven't had the courage to cut apart your stamps, I urge you to try's fun!

Stamps: CTMH Friendship (February 2011 SOTM)
Inks: CTMH Smokey Plum, Black
Papers: CTMH White Daisy, Smokey Plum, StazOn Black
Accessories: CTMH Clear Cards

And this card is going to a special purple-loving lady that is soon to be part of our family! Smiley from

I promise this card is Smokey Plum. I know it looks more like Chocolate or Cocoa, I blame the lighting. Actually, I blame Mother Nature. How was I supposed to know it was going to cloud over and rain and hail today?

Spread Your Wings Layout

Hi everyone! I'm back at the computer again after a long absence. I just have no idea where the month of January went, but I'm sure I misplaced it around here somewhere. Smiley from

Although I haven't been blogging a lot lately, I have been creating! With the new CTMH Spring/Summer book going live next week (February 1st!), I've been designing all the Craft Closet workshops up until July.
Smiley from

Last Saturday was the first workshop of 2011 with a sneak peek of brand new papers! We used the Wings Workshop on the Go (WOTG) and had fun with the new spray pen included in the kit!

And now a word from our sponsor:
Smiley from
This month when you purchase the WOTG, you'll be able to purchase other new stamps at great discounts! And you'll also be able to receive huge savings on the SOTM, Find Your Style when you get those sneak peek items!

Now we return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Now, it may not right away seem all too boy friendly. But I was determined! Engineer and I packed up the boys and our kites one Sunday afternoon and headed to the park. I got some great shots of the kids that worked perfectly.

This is just one of the layouts completed for the workshop:

Stamps: *gasp* no stamps were used!
Inks: CTMH Black
Papers: CTMH Wings Reflections Kit
Accessories: CTMH Wings Stickease, Black Mini-Medley Assortment

Using the Stickease made this go together super fast...why have I not used these before?! Smiley from

If you're local and you'd like to see the new book and lots of wonderful new scrapping products, my unit's Open House is this Saturday, the 29th, from 10-1. You can contact me for location information!
