Dreamin' Big CTMH Projects

Dreamin' Big by CTMH.  I love this paper pack!  It's mixed up colors just speak to me.  I began making this layout at a CTMH Consultant only event in December.  It was kind of basic as designed, so I felt the need to jazz it up a bit to make it more me.
Dreamin' Big Layout
The Dreamin' Big paper pack features 12 sheets, 2 of each of six different double sided cardstock, so there is a lot to create with.

Dreamin' Big Layout Detail
 I also added some Dreamin' Big Complements, which consist of three pages of sticker embellishments and a pack of these cool white plastic words and shapes.
Dreamin' Big A2 Card
The card above is made from pieces of the Dreamin' Big paper pack and all of the flowers are the sticker embellishments that I simply pop dotted.  I added a few Dreamin' Big Sequins for some bling, along with some Black Shimmer Trim.
Dreamin' Big 4x4 Card
This next card features a bicycle cut from our CTMH Flower Market Cricut Cartridge, another must have go to of mine.  The bicycle features Sea Glass Glitter Paper, that cuts like butter on the newer Cricut machines.  And guess what, one of my Dreamin' Big Sequins seems to have fallen off of the wheel!  Oh well, you get the picture!  The word happy is one of those 3D white plastic shapes that I was telling you came in the Complements packet.
Dreamin' Big 5x7 Card
And this last card is my favorite!  It is just a cut from one of the Dreamin' Big patterned paper, along with lots of those embellishment stickers from the Complements once again.  I added some Sugar Rush Dots to the center of these flowers for a little sparkle.
All of these projects will go onto a big black foamboard to show off to my customers at my crops.  I have a big crop that I am running in PA this weekend, so I had better let you go so I can get back to packing.
All of the supplies can be found on my website, or by clicking the links throughout this post.

CTMH Sugar Rush Layout #2

Ready for the next installment of my Sugar Rush Layouts?  Well, here goes!  I created this second layout with inspiration, once again, from Tina Lovell. 

Notice the little gold hearts and embellishments here and there?  Those are all part of the Sugar Rush Complements.

The easiest way to recreate these layouts is using the Sugar Rush Workshop Your Way kit
 It includes just about everything that you need!  Well, almost everything.  I also used the amazing Artistry Cricut Cartridge, a Close To My Heart exclusive, for the ice cream cone once again.  Oh, and I should mention that the bases of the layouts are Blossom cardstock, isn't that a pretty color? 
Be sure to stop back soon for my last layout installment as well as some Sugar Rush cards that I will be sharing!

CTMH Sugar Rush Layout #1

With every new Seasonal Expressions catalog, I like to make artwork samples to show to my customers how beautiful the new Close To My Heart paper lines are.  I had seen a set of beautiful layouts made last time around by a fellow consultant, Tina Lovell.  She had made the layouts out of Swan Lake, and I fell in love with them on Pinterest.  I decided to try to re-make her layouts with our brand new Sugar Rush paper suite.  Here is the first of three layouts that I made with CTMH Sugar Rush.  One element that you will see throughout all three of my layouts is a cute little ice cream cone that I have cut from the CTMH Artistry cartridge.  I hope you like the layout, and I hope that Tina likes my take on her pretty artwork too!

CTMH Adore You for the January Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for January 2017.  If you have arrived here from Michelle's blog, you are on the right track.

This month, I am sharing a quick and easy card that is made with the January Stamp of the Month from CTMH, Adore You.  I stamped this beautiful heart and colored it with ShinHan alcohol markers.  I added some gold accents onto the two biggest flowers on the heart with our brand new Gold Shimmer Brush.  I love that brush!  I also added a little bit of Liquid Glass to the centers of those flowers for an added embellishment.  Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, I used the beautiful new paper line called Hello Lovely, along with a touch of Rustic Home Fundamentals paper (the wood grain paper).

Thank you for stopping by to visit me on the Joyful Stars Blog Hop this month.  Next up, please hop along to Debi's blog to see what she has created for you.  See you next month!
