Skylark Layout - Album Retreat

Hello again Blog Hoppers!  I am having so much fun with the  papers and embellishments from the new CTMH 2014 Spring/Summer Idea Book that I wanted to share with you this layout that I did using the new Skylark Workshop on the Go.  I used a layout from the Make it From the Heart Volume 2 Patterns book as inspiration for this layout.  I used CTMH's Cricut Artbooking cartridge to create the circles overlay on both pages.  I also used the cartridge along with Cricut Craftroom (CCR) to weld the letters together for this layout.
I used my photos from the Fall Album Retreat that was hosted by CTMH.  As a consultant we get a lot of great perks.  I was fortunate enought to goto both scrap retreats.  I look forward to going to anything I can that is CTMH.  Thanks to my hubby for the awesome birthday treat! ;o)

I really like how the colors from the Skylark paper brings out the colors of my photos. When I first saw this paper I thought Spring & Summer - flowers, beach, etc. But I really think my fall photos 'pop' on this paper packet.  I also used the fabulous CTMH flip flaps to add a couple of extra photos to my layout as you can see above.  We have a wide variety of flip flaps to accomodate your needs.

Please make sure to check out everyone on the Blog Hop.  There is a lot of great inspiration that is sure to get your mojo fired up to create your own beautiful artwork.

Till next time - happy scrapping.

Spring/Summer February Blog Hop


Well ladies the new Spring/Summer Idea Book is here.  You will love all of the new paper that is in this book.  There are 7 new paper packs to pick from along with several new embellishments to compliment the papers.  We also have new embossing folders to pick from.  Make sure you check out my tab for 'Promotions' to take advantage of this month's special where you can get your embossing folders for FREE!
Here are some cards I created for a workshop that I hosted last month.  The first two cards I used our new Skylark paper pack along with Petit Perks stamp set.  Super cute and easy to make.  Notice the beautiful new Teal Shimmer Trim!  Even prettier in person.  There is also a new Purple Shimmer Trim that is great as well.
The card below I used the new Ariana paper pack.  I made the pretty roses/flowers using CTMH Cricut Art Philosphy and a quilling pen.  Super easy and such a pretty way to embellish a card.  This would make a great card for Mother's Day, which is just around the corner!  
The below card uses our new Ivy Lane paper along with the stamp set from the Ivy Lane WOTG card kit. 
I am currently using this paper pack to do a layout with flip flaps.  I will be posting that soon I hope.  Gotta finish up the embellishments and add the flip flap and then I can share it with you. 

I hope this gave you some inspiration to make some cards and show you how easy it is to make simple cards that you can share with your friends and family. 
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how these cards are made or if you are interested in getting some of these products to make your very own beautiful creations.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the ladies who have posted their creations on this blog.  There is some really great stuff.
Happy Scrapping till next time!
