Warmest Wishes

So simple, but so elegant!  Thank you to Amanda and Krystal for sharing the inspiration for this one from their great find on Pintrest!  Looks great with a mix of perls and sparkles, too!

Love Never Melts

I love this new stampset with the adorable snowmen!

Card Workshop

Could these cards be any cuter?! And the price couldn't be better! Make 8 of these cards (2 of each of the 4 designs) for $15. These cards come to gether quickly with the use of the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and coordinating stamp sets! Mona is donating all the money from this workshop for my mission trip... thank you, Mona!!!

Thoughtful Tidings Workshop

These cute gift boxes are a snap to make using the CTMH "Art Philosophy" Cricut cartridge and the coordinating stamp set called "Thoughtful Tidings". Use them to fill with treats for a special dad this Father's Day, or better yet, give them to someone "just because"! You can create both boxes for $5, and they will only take about 1/2 to make. I'll have 4 "Thoughtful Tidings" stamp sets to sell that day!

(Thank you to Vicki Wizniuk for the inspiration for this card!)

All About Dad

What a perfect gift for Father's Day! An album made by his family that celebrates him! This album was fun to make and I imagine it will be valued more as the years go by. I used the retired "It's a Guy Thing" paper pack, but it was also made by a friend with the "Lucky" paper pack and it looks great, too! You can get the whole album done with one pack (plus additional solid cardstock pages) with some leftovers! I still have to gather photos for the last layout!

Holiday Magic Christmas Cards


If you want to make your own Christmas cards this year, but don't want to get a brain cramp thinking up your own design, colours and supplies, sign up for this workshop! Susanne will lead you in making these three great cards and you get to keep the stamp set! You will go home with the samples and stamp set ready to mass produce at your convenience! These cards range from very quick to very fun. Perhaps the highlight will be using the ink resist technique (using versa mark and embossing powder) for the blue sled and snowflake card. Fun, fun, fun!
Cost:$20

New Cricut Cartridge now available through CTMH!

Wow, I never would have guessed it, but how perfect! Now you can cut cricut shapes to match/coordinate with many CTMH stamp sets! To check out how to use the cricut cartridge to enhance some of our Workshops on the Go patterns, click here for a youtube video.

It's not too early to start thinking about your Valentine! January is well underway and before we know it Valentine's Day will be upon us! Why not come to our crop on Jan. 22nd to join me in making these adorable 3x3" minis?! They're the perfect size for on top of a box of chocolates, or as a surprise in a lunch box or on a desk. With 5 cards, you'll be able to express to several people how much they mean to you. Sentiments can easily be changed to suit the person who's receiving it. These are versatile enough that you could even use them for a different occasion!

Baby card

Here's a card that is as sweet as the baby who it was designed for (well, almost as sweet!)! Congratulations again, Kristy, with the arrival of beautiful baby Quinn!

I loved the graduation card that Mona was making at our June all day crop, so I changed up the papers and made one for my daughter at the same time!

Box with Bella paper


I just love these CTMH boxes! They are sturdy, made out of stampable chipboard, and have magnetic flaps. They fit 4x6 cards, photos or recipe cards (exact dimensions are: 6 3/8' x 4 3/4" x 3 3/4"). This photo is of the one I'm offering as a workshop on Oct. 2 at our all day crop. The photo shows you different options for decorating it. The patterned paper is from the "Bella"' paper pack and is reversible so you can use chocolate or hollyhock for your main colour. The flower embellishment can be customized as well. The inside flap is also covered with the floral paper so it looks cute open or closed!
The greeting card is made with a technique called ink resist which uses heat embossing. This card is easy to customize for any occasion by just changing up the saying. Don't forget you can click on the photo to see the items in closer detail.

June Hostess Club Layout

We're ending the club year with a bang! I was inspired by a PageMaps layout, and I love how it turned out! This will be the first page in a whole album dedicated to me. When I (or my kids) look back over it in the years ahead, I think it will be interesting to see how life changes. Wouldn't you love to see an album dedicated to your mom when she was your age and compare your lives?

May Hostess Club Layout

This layout uses the Veranda "Creative Basics" paper and ribbon. I thought it was perfectly suited for my Mom and her twin brother's 75 birthday pictures. You can't see it well (or at all!) but there are lines stamped between the brackets for journaling. this spot could also be used to add more images like a cake etc.

April Hostess Club Layout

We used Veranda paper and the Felicity stamp set to make our layout this month. A snap to put together, but shows off well! I may add a title or some journaling to the page... will decide when I put together the other side.

More card ideas for "A Posy"

Here are some more ideas on how to use the "A Posy" stampset. I got some inspiration from Krista for these.

A Posy Workshop

What a cute and economical stampset! I used techniques like "kissing", "second generation stamping" and "masking" to make these cards. This card workshop comes with the stampset! Email me for details!

Another True Fit Folio layout!


Another one for my workshop. I thought it would be nice to offer one in more feminine colours. These are so fun to make!
