CTMH Cross Canada Blog Hop - Summer Albums

Welcome to our July Blog Hop featuring summer album creations.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Deanne at http://deannejacobs.blogspot.ca. If you came from Michelle of mycreationswithmichelle then you are in the right place!

Vacations are so much fun and most of us take TONS of pictures while we are having fun in the sun.  How many of you actually print the pictures and scrapbook them?  If you are like me, you are still working on photos from a couple of years ago, or older!  My husband and I took this cruise in February of THIS YEAR and I wanted to document the fun we had without the pressure of creating a full album of layouts.  Picture My Life is absolutely perfect for quick and easy scrapbooks....in fact I did most of this in an afternoon!  You will notice that I still have some journalling and embellishing to do, but you will get the overall idea.







 Here are a few close ups of the embellishing I've done so far, keeping in mind that this is meant to be simple and quick, so minimal embellishing is required:



And, I also used some of the spaces to insert tickets and memorabilia!


So, this is my "summer" album, I hope you will be inspired to create one for yourself!  Supplies used:  Picture My Life Scrapbook kits - Surf's Up, Balloon Ride; Aqua Dots, Bakers Twine, Triangle Durables, Brown & Teal Shimmer tape, adhesive. 

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nicola of  http://www.timelesscottage.ca  If you get lost along the way, you can head to Michelle S Blog, http://mycreationswithmichelle.blogspot.ca, as she has the complete blog list.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to get creative using some of the designs, products and techniques seen along the way. We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring alternative uses for Picture My Life cards.   So mark August 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

Surviving in a cottage during a hurricane and other fun stuff!

I spent this past weekend at a cottage on a lake with two lovely scrapbooking buddies!  Probably not the best weekend for us to go as we were expecting a storm on Saturday.  The forcast indicated that the storm would be down graded to a post tropical storm....wind and some rain but nothing significant.  The forcast was wrong....we had winds that topped 140 kms and lasted for hours.  We lost power mid-afternoon on Saturday and it was still out when we left Sunday evening.  We ate potato chips for supper and washed it down with a little wine.  We had lanterns as well so all was good.  The drive home Sunday was like going through a war zone....trees down on power lines and across the road, branches and leaves littering yards and roads.  Such a destructive storm, but the three of us hunkered down and weathered it together.  Needless to say, we didn't get a lot of scrapbooking done, but some!  And we had a blast!

This layout is the layout my hostess club did last month.  We were using Jubilee paper and I hated to cover up the patterns so I chose to use the one pattern and cut out the center. When I was finished you couldn't even see the seam where I started to cut, nor could the girls!  We used some old-school tools like a paper crimper and we embossed the craft paper with the Dots embossing folder from CTMH.  Minimal stamping on this layout but we all loved it!

Hope you are enjoying your summer!

It's Been a Little While....


It's been a little while since I've posted.....as my husband would say, "I was OBE......overtaken by events"  hahaha.  Spring is always crazy busy for me at work, and I have had lots going on with Close To My Heart as well.  One highlight was attending our Regional Celebrations in Halifax!  It was so much fun getting together with my CTMH sisters and getting our craft on!  Another highlight was my annual all-day card play day.....and the cards I am showing you today are from that event.  We always have a great day, and this year was no different....here are a couple of the cards we created:

 This was a fun technique the combines random stamping with layering that I CASed from another CTMH consultant - I changed the colours slightly and stamped a small image to fill in the spaces.


This baby card was an idea that was shared at one of our shoebox card gatherings by Tanya French. I love the diaper envelope for this card, cut by hand from a template.  Switch up the patterned paper for a boy or girl card, or use green/yellow for a more generic one if the gender is not known yet.


I am back on track now, so watch for more posts coming soon. I have lots of new artwork to share. :-)

Card Class - see what you are missing!

Hi there! These are the three cards we created this month in my card class....had a brand new "student" who went home very pleased with herself that she was able to create these on her first time out.  You can do it too.....I will show you how!  These were created with the beautiful Ivy Lane paper pack that is available HERE.  We used our new Damask and Quatrefoil embossing folders as well - I am so happy that we have these as part of our product line....opens up a whole new world of creativity to us!  So here they are:

And a closer look at each one:



So, perhaps you'll join us this month as we create three more beautiful cards with another of our great CTMH paper packs - Balloon Ride.  See you soon!

Hostess Club Layout

My hostess group is an awesome group of ladies, we've had lots of fun creating layouts together.  Last month we did a "10 Things" layout which I haven't photographed yet, and this month we did a layout right out of the CTMH Idea Book....page 95 to be exact.  The colours are different because I "CASed" fellow consultant Susan William's choice of papers and used our Ivy Lane paper pack to create this layout.  Our Artbooking and Art Philosophy cricut cartridges were also used to create this lovely layout. It took us a little longer to make this one, but the results were worth the extra effort!


I love the hexagon overlay and the flowers are so sweet.  All materials used were CTMH except for the punch to do the leaves.  Now to find some photos to add. :-)

If you think you might be interested in joining a hostess club, contact me for more information.
