CTMH Taste of Summer Gift Bag Tags - May Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the May Joyful Stars Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from my dear friend Lori's blog, than you are on the right track.
As I sat looking at my new CTMH Taste of Summer paper, I happened to glance across the table at my new grab bag goodie pile.  As many of you know, last month CTMH offered a different grab bag every day during April.  I purchased only one, and although it was a great value, I am not the gambling type.  One of the items that came in my grab bag, and every single other grab bag that I have seen photos of, were these little Christmas gift bag set.  I have seen people with these gift bags coming in abundance, much to their dismay.  I mean, it is Spring, and Christmas gift bags are the last thing on our minds, right?  Well, back to my gazing across the table...the aha! moment.  The CTMH Taste of Summer papers would make the perfect little tags to accompany those former "Christmas" gift bags.  I stamped the little sayings, oranges and strawberries from the Taste of Summer Stamp Set.  The tags themselves, along with the flowers and leaves were all cut using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  Remember that both the Taste of Summer paper and stamp set are only available during the month of May, and while supplies last.
You can go ahead and thank me now for helping you repurpose that mountain of Christmas gift bags that was making you want to scream!  Just kidding!!!
I am sure you loved them before my aha! moment lol!
I hope you like them :)

Thanks for visiting GIRLplusPAPER during the May Joyful Stars blog hop!  Up next please hop along to visit the talented Helen at Living My Given Life.  I will see you next month.

Simple Stories Enchanted with Close To My Heart Touches

It has taken me forever to get this blog entry up!!!  Not because the project took me a long time to complete, but rather because I am obviously unskilled with the entire video process.

As I mentioned in the video, I love my Close To My Heart products, but Disney is at the very top of my loves, after my family of course!  The Simple Stories Enchanted paper line, along with some of my Close To My Heart favorites worked flawlessly together to create this amazing layout of our visit with The Princess and The Frog.
Here are some still photos to help you see some of my elements more clearly.

I hope you have enjoyed my project featuring the Simple Stories Enchanted line of products combined with Close To My Heart favorites.  You may find out more information about the CTMH products, or even purchase them, by clicking the following links.

Taste of Summer CTMH National Scrapbooking Month 2015 Special

In celebration of National Scrapbooking Month, CTMH just released a "fruity" paper pack and coordinating stamp set called Taste of Summer.  It is a breath of fresh air and makes me dream of those long Summer days that will soon be here.  The Taste of Summer paper packet includes 12 beautifully designed sheets of 12" x 12" cardstock in 6 designs for only $8.95.  The coordinating Taste of Summer stamp set is available for $17.95 for the month of May. 
I have created 4 gorgeous 2 paged layouts using the Taste of Summer paper packet, stamp set, the CTMH Art Philosophy, Artiste and Artbooking cartridges, along with 10 sheets of White Daisy cardstock.  The layouts are embellished with a sprinkle of CTMH sequins and bling.
Would you like to create all 8 pages?  
Place any order of $25 or more in products on my website and I will send you a high quality PDF containing full color photos, helpful hints and cutting guides, as well as a link to my Cricut Design Space files to cut all of the necessary Cricut elements so that you may recreate your own layouts.  Might I suggest purchasing the paper packet and stamp set for a total of $26.90 in products? 
******You must have all 3 of the CTMH Cricut cartridges (listed above) in your own Cricut Design Space account in order to cut on your Cricut Explore.******
This is the perfect option for CTMH consultants that would like to create a workshop using the CTMH Taste of Summer products with their own customers, yet find themselves short on time.  Every cut has been figured out for you!
