A Mother's Arms

Hi folks,

With Mother's Day just around the corner, I figured it was high time I made this year's cards. I finally got around to it on Sunday.

Here's a couple of cards I put together using the new Florence papers from Close To My Heart and one of my newest stamps from Unity Stamp Company.

May promos from CTMH

Hi folks!


It's a new month and it is time to say Hello! to the May promos from CTMH.


The May Stamp of The Month is "Celebrate with Cake" (S1605) - a great "build  a cake" stamp set.






I love those little pennants for sticking in the top of the cake! As usual, this is a D size stamp set which you can purchase for the regular price OR for just $6 with a $50 order.

Here's some artwork from CTMH Home Office featuring this versatile stamp set.




And let's not forget that May is National Scrapbooking Month! You KNOW CTMH had to have something special up their sleeves for THIS special occasion. How about a limited edition stamp set AND a free paper pack with EVERY $70 order?

Here's a shot of the Happy Times D size stamp set. Yours for $21.25.


And the Happy Times paper pack. You get a FREE pack with every $70 purchase. So...spend $140, that's TWO paper packs.... and so on, and so on. Guess how many free paper packs I got on MY last order? FOUR!!! Of course, you can also purchase the paper pack at a full retail price of $17.75. But who doesn't love free?



See that gold stripe paper? Foil!!!! Delish!

And JUST in case you need a new album for all that scrapbooking you are going to finish during National Scrapbooking Month - there's 25% off all of the My Legacy Albums!


And if THAT's not enough - the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book officially launches today!! Woo hoo! So many fabulous goodies to select from - why do you think I got four free packs of paper? I had a HUGE want list from this cattie!



So go grab your favourite bevvie and settle down to page through the new idea book and make YOUR list! If you have any questions, just drop me a line! If you want to place an order, get in touch OR join the Seasonal Expressions 2 Launch party on my site!

I'm planning to get crafty today with all of my new goodies. So you can expect to see some posts in the next little while with a BUNCH of new products!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Birthday - Confetti Wishes

Hi folks....

and.....I'm back!

With another.....are you ready for this?  21 cards!!! These all use the Confetti Wishes papers from CTMH. And an assortment of stamps and embellies.

























I can't decide if the cards with the speech bubbles are my favourite or the ones with the candles....or the balloons.....or....well, these were all just fun to make. They are fantastic additions to my stash!

Happy Everything - using it up!

Hi folks!

You guessed it! I'm home on a Friday night and going through all the photos of cards I've shared on my FB page but haven't yet shared to the blog!

Again - a photo heavy post with cards made from leftover card kits! These 15 cards have a more masculine feel as they use the CTMH Jackson paper pack.


















Have I said how great it is to know that you have THIS many cards to choose from if you suddenly need a card?

Eat More Cake!

Hi folks,

Just thought I would pop in and share the cards I made to use up some of the lefotver stash of card kits I had prepped last year for a workshop.

These 17 cards all use the Blossom papers from CTMH. The papers are all the same shape and size but I just played around with their orientation and which side of the paper is visible. I also mixed up the sentiments that were used on the cards and the coloured inks that were used for accents.

So now I have a LOT of cards for my stash - or to sell for this year's fundraising for Light The Night!




















It was great to get these card kits used up!
