I am SO EXCITED!  Today is opening session of the 2013 CTMH Convention in sunny Florida!  For those who are unable or have chosen not to attend, you can catch the excitment via all manner of social media throughout the weekend.  Check Jeanette's blog, CTMH Facebook and Twitter #vivactmh and #ctmhdreamteam and the CTMH website ad well as the countless consultant blogs.  It's not the same as being here, but it will give you a taste and I'm sure you won't want to miss it next year!

In the mean time, here is my bi-monthly blog/newletter.

Cover  - not our ribbon but it coordinates so nicely!

The B&T is from Studio J!  It's a Studio J exclusive paper called Splash Zone.  I put the paper into the "no limits" pattern and ordered it.  On some of the books I printed out the jpg.  This is Pages 1 and 2

pages 3 and 4

Back Cover

Inserts that pull out of each of the paper pouches.  The stamp on the pull tab is from the Mexican Riviera Cruise Set
Here is a card from my July workshop. - last chance to use Claire  (Claire is out of stock now)

July Stamp of the Month Card

This is my July Stamp of the Month card - I used the marker techniques shown in the video on the CTMH website
I stamped the image with Black Stazon. It's embellished with Bulk 296 Bakers Twine - Hemp and Artisan Studs

This card was adapted from a card by Lori Miller - she used the Dream Pop papers
I re-made it using Later Sk8r

This is a card I did last year - it uses just cardstock and Cricut AP cuts
the base is made from a circle cut at 5 1/2 inches and folded in half
Cut a second one is Topiary and cut it in half (you get 2 cards from 1 circle)
the white scallop circle layer is cut at 5 inches - cut in half as well
the Hollyhock circle layer is cut at 4 1/2 inches - cut in half and sponged
the "seeds" are cut at 1/2 inch and covered with Liquid Glass.
The card fits in a standard letter size envelope.
