I participated several times in a “layout” swap with some of my CTMH sisters where we created all the pieces to complete 12 x 12 layouts, swapped and added them to our own cardstock bases!  This layout was one that I received from Kim McArthur and I am finally able to use it for some sweet pictures of my grandson!  BIG NEWS too, I am going to be a grandma again!!!   


This layout uses a retired paper pack from CTMH called “Caboodle” and I added some MS embellishments, but doesn’t that little teddy bear just look so cute on this layout!  



Our stamps are not just for card making!!  The stamp set I chose is called “Teddy Bear Birthday” A1143 and I think that little bear is so cute for baby layouts!

Welcome to our Blog Hop featuring CTMH consultants who belong to the Brae-er's team ..... 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 get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog at
http://thebrae-er.blogspot.com for a full list of participants. If you came from Sheri's blog, then you are in the right place!

This month, we are focusing on projects we have made with our new Cricut "Artbooking" cartridge.  I chose to do this layout, I couldn't wait to create that hexagon overlay.  I mixed and matched elements from a couple of different keys, but I loved how I could just set my dial at one size and cut everything to fit perfectly on the page.  I also used some of the "negative" pieces to create the border on the right page.


 Don't even ask me about these photos.....what happens at the cottage, stays at the cottage!! LOL

Products Used: All CTMH - Artbooking Cricut Cartridge, Cocoa, Topiary, Honey, White Daisy, & Twilight cardstock & inks, stamp set from Artbooking bundle,  Slate Washi tape, Scholastic paper pack, Baker's twine, durables studs. 

Your next stop on the hop is Lucy's blog .  Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in next month!!
