Perfect 1st Day of Summer Card

Sun & Surf Cricut Flower Market Card

It’s official!  Today is the First Day of Summer.  We’ve had some really HOT days here already, so to me, it already seems like summer is here.  Plus, once school ends, I think both parents and kids (and teachers!) alike, feel as though summer has officially begun.

Angled Sun & Surf Cricut Flower Market Card

Today I wanted to share 2 fun summer cards–one I created (and have offered at my monthly Card Buffets) and one I received from Laurie L.  Both are unique and definitely say summer in their own way.

My Sun & Surf card was created using CTMH’s Cricut Flower Market (their most recent one; but fingers crossed they’ll be another *NEW* Cricut Collection released on August 1st!)  I used each of CTMH’s newest colors from their Adventure palette (Pansy, Emerald, Willow, Lemon, Tangerine, Blossom and Raspberry) to give a nice bright pop of color.

Summer Double Z Fold Card

Laurie’s card uses CTMH’s *NEW* No Worries Paper Collection.  It’s a fun Double Z-Fold Card.  It also uses the *NEW* Summer BBQ Stamp Set and the No Worries Sequins (these might be my favorite sequins offered!)

Open Summer Double Z Fold Card

So when you open it up, you get the full pennant banner that says “summer” to show. A fun way to wish someone a wonderful summer full of happiness and surprises; just like this card!

The color combination in this card is great.  I don’t know that I would have put it together.  But I will definitely be using it together very soon!  It contains: Sapphire, Lagoon, Glacier and Tangerine.

Don’t forget that CTMH recently added an additional special to the month of June–get 25% off all cardstock.  With all these beautiful colors I’ve shown in these 2 cards, you may be inspired to stock up on some cardstock.  And the timing couldn’t be better!  To purchase some CTMH cardstock or other CTMH items, please visit MY ONLINE CTMH STORE.

Here’s to a great start to a wonderful summer…enjoy it!

Live. Laugh. Love. Card

CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2 Catalog

There is always a bunch of excitement when new product is released. Consultants look forward to it.  Customers look forward to it.  It’s always a super exciting time filled with lots of creativity.

CTMH SE2 2017 Card Swap

An additional element that I always love is participating in a card swap featuring these *NEW* CTMH products.  Truly, it’s like Christmas when you open the box of swapped cards and see tons of new ideas with all the new stamps sets, papers and embellishments.

CTMH Live Laugh Love Card

Today I’m going to share one of the cards I received that was created by Jennifer because the timing couldn’t be better as she used this month’s Stamp of the Month!  Plus, I really love how she incorporated additional words to it to create a longer sentiment.  I will definitely be doing this myself!

Live Laugh Love May Stamp of the Month

You might have a sense of familiarity with the May Stamp of the Month as the style is very similar to a popular stamp set offered in the Seasonal Expressions 1 Catalog.  Live, Laugh, Love is a stamp set with 9 images that are perfect for coloring!

Happy First Day of Spring!

Flower Market Paper Succulents

I hope wherever you are that your day was bright and cheerful in honor of the first day of Spring! Unfortunately, here where I am, it was overcast with a little bit of rain.

Cricut Flower Market Paper Succulent

But that’s okay because last week was gorgeous and I had the opportunity to make these delightful paper succulents with CTMH’s Flower Market Cricut Collection!

I used these adorable projects as gifts at Saturday’s Spring Fling Event.  In the bottom of each flower pot, I put a little product surprise for each attendee to find.

And don’t be fooled by this Cricut Collection’s name–it has way more to it than just flowers!  Look at all the fun holiday shapes, banner pieces, titles and font it contains:


St. Patrick’s Day Self-Closing Box

Tea-rrific St Patricks Self Closing Box

St. Patrick’s Day will be here before you know it!  I was teaching a group of friends how to make Self-Closing Boxes last night and decided to make myself a St. Patrick’s Day themed one.  I really like how it turned out!  These boxes are super fun as all you need to do to open them is to pinch the two sides together.  No need to fasten it closed or undo any type of closure, like ribbon, velcro, etc.

Spring-themed Self Closing Box

I’ve made a few in the past and always love how unique they turn out.

Self Closing Box

Each one is beautiful in their own way.  And I find with each new one I create, I love it more than the last!  And that definitely holds true with this St. Patrick’s Day one I created.

March Stamp of the Month Tea-rrific

I ended up using Close To My Heart’s March Stamp of the MonthTea-rrific to create the pattern to my shamrock.  It’s a use a little out of the theme of the set, but it turned out great!

Angled St. Patrick's Self-Closing Box

Gold Shimmer Brush

I used CTMH’s newest Cricut CollectionFlower Market to cut out the shamrock shape for the focal point.  In addition to stamping the shamrock, I also used our *NEW* Gold Shimmer Brush to add some shine and sparkle to it.  It was hard to capture in the photo, but it looks BEAUTIFUL!
