Shimmery HELLO - Tool Time with H2H...

Welcome to this week's H2H Challenge featuring CTMH's Shimmer Brush

I've had the LOVE LETTERS and Chelsea Gardens on my scrap table for quite some time now so I decided to make a quick card and add some shimmer to the flower! I even added some vellum to soften up the Charcoal Polka Dot pattern and added a stamped sentiment from Bloom & Grow (the January SOTM) on the envelope...

----------------------------------------------
I love that my sentiment was easy using left-overs from the LOVE LETTERS alphabet stickers...
-------------------------------------------
And...I hope you can see the SHIMMER on these petals...it adds the perfect touch to a simple card! I added a Gold Pearl in the center of the flower to finish it off....
---------------------------------------------
Here's a look at the inside...I left it blank for added a floral sticker from the left-over LOVE LETTERS stickers...it's the perfect touch, I think!

Thanks for stopping by...I hope you feel inspired to create with one of CTMH's Shimmer Brushes...they come in Clear (which is what I used), Gold & Bashful. If you create something, we'd LOVE for you to play along with our Challenge!

Head on over to the H2H Challenge Blog and see what everyone else created AND to link up your project!

Get organized in 2018...

Workspace Wonder™ Organization

January is a great time to start fresh, clean things out, and work on new goals. As you’ve been thinking about New Year’s resolutions, did anything on your list include adding more organization into your life? Maybe your closet or your pantry need some love, but don’t forget about your crafting space, too! Clear the clutter and make your space work for you with Workspace Wonder™, our customizable organization storage solution.

The individual components of the Workspace Wonder line stack on top of each other in a variety of combinations, so you can mix and match the pieces to create a storage solution that’s perfectly tailored to your crafting style and space. And if your needs change, you can easily rearrange the pieces again to get the right fit for you. There are so many possibilities for stacking and storing—you’ll want to discover them all!

Making sure everything has a place is so important. When things are put away and organized, it lets your mind relax, allowing your mental and physical space to be creative. Just having a room that is organized can help you be more creative while crafting (and who doesn’t want that!).
Tools, ribbon, ink pads, markers, and embellishments can all have the perfect home with the Workspace Wonder system. Do you have stacks of 12″ x 12″ cardstock that need to be put away? Stacked Workspace Wonder paper trays will help with exactly that. Top them off with a large tray and a marker stack or tool cubby for additional organization space.
Keeping your craft room organized can also be a huge time-saver, making your time more efficient. What happens when you can’t find that one ink pad or marker you need to finish a project? You spend time frantically searching your craft room, and sometimes even the rest of your house. Keeping supplies like ink pads organized with Workspace Wonder is easy! You can use stamp pad stacks on the carousel base and top. One swivel, and you have exactly what you need, no frustrating search required.

Staying organized can be a challenge, especially when it comes to scrapbooking, cardmaking, and papercrafting, but it helps you be more productive and more creative. Organized space saves time when working on projects and reduces stress. Embrace the joy of an organized crafting space this year by using Workspace Wonder to keep all of your creative supplies in the perfect place.

Magical LOVE LETTER...

Have you been seeing the LOVE LETTERS offered by CMTH this month?!?!?!


I....WANT....THEM....ALL...lol

But...I started with my initial and then went a little "magical" by adding a unicorn horn! 




---------------------------------
My letter is made with everything that comes with the kit except the eyelashes and the horn which I used the You Are Here Cricut Collection and my Cricut Explore Air...the cartridge doesn't have a unicorn horn but it has this ice-cream cone that turned upside down and chopped at the base of the ice cream sure looks like a horn to me!

***kit does NOT come with adhesive...my adhesive of choice is CTMH's Liquid Glass...I used my regular scrapbooking adhesive (non-liquid) to adhere the letter to the chipboard base***

DON'T FORGET...these Love Letters are only available during the month of January...so hurry and get yours today!!!

These versatile letters can also be used together to spell out a whole name or word, which is why if you buy five letter kits, you can choose a sixth kit FREE!
You can also receive your choice of letter kit free by hosting a qualifying party in January or by signing up to be a Consultant!

Winter Blues with H2H....

Welcome to this week's H2H Challenge...WINTER BLUES!

What I love most about "challenges" is that they're open to interpretation and that's exactly what I did this week! I really wanted to do a layout of our FREEZING time-in for the past few weekends but instead, I decided to do a little "cheer-me-up" card to save for someone who might need the reminder to SMILE!

I broke out the NEW Stargazer line and used one of the PML (pocket-scrapbooking) cards for my focal piece. I used another PML card (the polka dots) for the inside which also shows on the right side of the card. I added a zip strip and some coordinating cardstock for the other blocks of color....added some retired twine to bring it all together.





Thanks for stopping by...and if you live in an area of the world where the sun hasn't been shining lately and you have those WINTER BLUES, I hope my card makes you SMILE!

Don't forget to play along with us...grab some CTMH products of your liking and link up your WINTER BLUES project(s)...we LOVE to see your artwork!
