June is such a busy month for everyone. The last month of school! Preparing for all the summer activities! Father's Day! I believe that cards scrapped' with love are so much better to give and receive then store-bought ones. So in the beginning of June, I am offering a card workshop, using a variety of stamps, inks, markers & paper packs! Check them out below!

This first card is made using the Girls Rock stamp set and the great Dream Pop Paper Pack, which will no longer be available after May 31st! Order your paper pack while supplies last!

Exclusive Inks Used: Topiary, Cotton Candy, & Sorbet

The second card makes for an awesome little gift for Father's Day. It is called a side-step card and was inspired by Shannon White of "The Scrapping Stamper". The products used to make this card were the Later Sk8r Paper Pack and the Perfect Fit - Dad stamp set. The great thing about this card is it can be customized to say grandpa, griller, or golfer!

Exclusive Inks Used: Outdoor Denim, Black, & Lagoon

The third card is a great way to say thanks to all those wonderful teachers out there or even someone special in our life! Claire Paper Pack, June's Stamp of the Month (a blog post to come very soon about this great stamp set), and an assortment of CTMH Exclusive Inks Markers were used to make this great card.

Exclusive Inks Used: Olive and Hollyhock

If you are interested in taking part of these great cards, just go to my Facebook Event Page and RSVP on the workshop event.

Now the greatest thing about working on these cards, was the help I got by my beautiful little girl. I am one lucky momma!!!

I love Close To My Heart & all it stands for. Last year as I attended Convention and met Jeanette Lynton - I was reminded why this company is so great - its because of her! Jeanette is such a kind, caring, genuine person; and has made sure that her company showcases these values.

Well, this week, CTMH has demonstrated again how caring and kind they are, by finding a way to help provide relief to those affected by the Oklahoma tornado. CTMH is making a new Autumn/Winter 2013 stamp set available IMMEDIATELY and is donating 100% of the profits from sales, until June 30th, to the American Red Cross. 

You can purchase this cute mini stamp set here, for a great price of only $2.95. Want to get it for FREE? Well place an order with me in the next week, that includes the promotional Dream Pop paper pack, & I will include it in your order for no cost to you!

Only 10 days left in May, which means "Dream Pop" promotion is nearing the end. "Dream Pop" includes 12 beautiful designer bold & textured paper and 12 stunning glossy cardstocks. While enjoying a very quiet evening, I was able to complete a set of baby cards, that I will be using in an upcoming swap. Check them out and I would love some comments!!!

These cards were completed with the following current products: "Dream Pop" paper packet, "New Baby" stamp set, Lagoon Exclusive Ink Pad, and Slate Exclusive Ink Pad. As well as retired product "Whooo's Your Valentine" stamp set and some old glitter brads I had lying around.

"Whale, what do you know?" sentiment done using masking technique

Inside of Card
While making these beautiful cards I used a masking technique. So to do this, I took a piece of scotch tape and covered the part of the stamp that I did not want showing, I then inked the stamp, removed the tape & stamped the remainder of the image onto the card!!! Voila! A perfect way to break up the sentiment so part of it was on the outside & part of it was on the inside.

Using just the Chantilly Paper Pack (X7163B), Chantilly Complements Dimensional Elements (X7163C), & the Chantilly Assortment (Z1814), I was able to create these 3 beautiful 2-page layouts. They work perfectly for little girls, spring time pictures, outdoor playing, baby photos, or really anything.

My daughter Brooklyn is already 2.5 years old and of course, I haven't completed her first year album yet. These 3 layouts are a great way to get a bunch of her pictures scrapped quickly & beautifully. If you are interested in ordering a kit to complete these 3 layouts, just go to my Facebook Event Page and RSVP on the workshop event.
Isn't she adorable??

    Well, I just had an absolutely wonderful weekend. I got to spend lots of time with family and enjoying the beautiful weather. I am so lucky and grateful for my many blessings.  I not only got to spend time with my mom, but also enjoyed living the wonders of being a mom.

    I have always been so grateful for my mom & all she has done for me, however this gratitude has grown exponentially since having my own children. Not only can I reflect on truly how much she loved us, her children, but I am now getting to experience all of the joys & heartbreaks that one feels as a mother. The joys of your children's smiles, giggles, words & personalities. The heartbreak from watching your children get hurt, having struggles, & experiencing disappointment. I truly love my mom for all that she has done for me, but also for every bit of love & attention she shines on my children. They are so lucky to have her as a grandma!!!

    I hope that wherever all of you were this weekend, you were able to spend time, talk to, or just think about the ones you love & call Mother, Mommy, & Mom.

    My beautiful mom & I!!!

    My 2 most amazing blessings which have brought me on this journey of motherhood!!!

    Got to spend both Saturday & Sunday this past weekend, scrappin' with some great girls, making beautiful perpetual calendars, using CTMH Event Calendar. An event calendar is a great way to keep track of recurring important events, such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc. It can be used year after year, so it makes for an awesome gift, as it never needs to be thrown out! A few of the girls were even planning on giving it to moms and grandma's for Mother's Day!!! Here's some pictures of the completed project! 

    The girls loved them and I am sure their families will too!


    Inspiration gained from the great blog by Jen Rubio

    Contact me today, if you would like to make one of these calendars for yourself or someone special!
