Christmas is coming - here's some inspiration from CTMH....

Christmas Album Inspiration

The hustle and bustle of the holidays is just around the corner, with Christmas only a little over two months away! To help you get your holiday cheer going (if it isn’t already!), we are sharing a Christmas album with you made entirely from patterns featured in our new how-to book, Make It from Your Heart™, Vol. 3.
 Use the images below as inspiration to make your own layouts. If you’d like to replicate them exactly, look to our supply list at the end of this post. You’ll see that you only need a handful of products, including one of each of the items in our Beary Christmas suite: one paper packet, one set of coordinating cardstock, one set of Complements, one set of dots, and one silver shimmer trim.

Check out this FALL-bulous card...

Less than a week left in September which means that you have less than a week to get your hands on this FALL-BULOUS Stamp Set...Feel So Blessed!!!

Some images are colored with ShinHan Markers (feather, tiny heart, swag leaves & "THANK")...and the others are stamped with our Exclusive Inks...

Here's a quick card I made using this versatile stamp set and CTMH's Falling For You line. I also added some twine from the Enchantment Ribbon Pack to break the two B&T patterns up...
I hate that you can't see the glittery finish on the feather...I used our Clear Shimmer Brush to add some shine...

Don't forget...this stamp set is only available 'till the end of September and can be yours for ONLY $5 with a qualifying order!

Blog Hops with Heart - Halloween...

Welcome to this month's Blog Hops with Heart featuring anything and everything Halloween-inspired!

There are only a few of us so it won't take you long to hop all the way through! Don't worry if you're arrived here can visit the other girls by click on the link at the end of my post.

If you've come here from Amie's Blog, you're on the right track...

Here's my project, using the NEW line from CTMH, Cats & Bats...I decided to do a layout using one of my favorite pictures from a couple of years ago.

Here are some close-ups...

This layout use the Cats & Bats Scrapbooking Kit Stamp Set (I also bought the corresponding Thin Cuts but haven't used them yet...hehehehehehe). I doodled some tiny black dots using my Marvy Journaling Pen. The FABULOUS orange dots you see are from the Cats & Bats Dots and come in 3 colors....FAB-U-LOUS!!! 
The tiny strips I used to tuck in and around my photo mat come from the Zip-Strips and a piece of the B&T...
All these tiny words are cut from one of the B&T pieces that come with the Cats & Bats and easy way to add some titling or embellishment to any layout or card!

Thanks for creeping by...if you want to start from the beginning and check out all the girls' artwork, head on over to Kelly's Blog.
