CTMH Laughing Lola Scrapbook Layout

Happy Labor Day!  Where did the summer go???  Well, I certainly been busy "laboring" on all kinds of creating.  Since my last check in I've created several cards, a couple new Layouts and even finished a Baby Book using the new Artbooking Cartridge.  Here I'm going to share one of the Layouts I completed using Laughing Lola.  This layout is for one of the projects that we will be creating at the Creative Scrapbooking class that I'll be teaching at the Main Line Night School later this month.
Laughing Lola (X7170B) is an adorable, playful paper packet that features bright colors.  It is perfect for so many types of projects.  Since this Layout was completed as a class project, we didn't do any stamping, but rather, used the Laughing Lola Complements Dimensional Elements (X7170C.)  I don't often use these embellishments, but I realized just how perfectly they coordinate with the papers and how simply and quickly a Layout goes together using them!  CTMH really does make it "faster, simpler, easier" to complete a terrific looking layout.

The class that we will be making this layout is called "Creative Scrapbooking" and it is being sponsored by the Main Line Night School in Radnor PA.  It is a two week class and we will be reviewing basic scrapbooking principles and techniques.  Visit the School's website for more information about the school.  Main Line has been sponsoring classes since 1938 and I am tickled to be an instructor with them. 

BTW, I realize that I owe a stamp give away.  I've not forgotten and will announce the winner soon.  Now it is back to creating and later off to work.  Yes, I must work on Labor Day.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

The New CTMH Idea Book is Here with a Give Away!

It is finally the day to release the new Idea Book!!!!!!!  Party Hardy everyone because this IB is probably the best one in ages!  I love everything in it.  There is a new Cricut Cartridge that is ground breaking.  Literally, you no longer have to waste paper cutting images that don't fit on your project.  Just set the Cricut on the size of your layout the the title, embellishments, overlays and photo mats cut perfectly.  There are new wonderful papers, embellishments and stamps.  I hardly know where to begin.  Convention was a blast this year because of all of the excitement around the new products.

One of the special treats in the IB is in celebration of the upcoming anniversary.  Hard to believe, but CTMH has been in business for almost 30 years and remains as solid and innovative as ever.  One special treat are stamps from Jeannette Lynton's archive.  They are stamps favorites from years past that are being brought back for a limited time only.  So very special...
This adorable ragdoll is just one of those archived stamps.  It is from a set called "Stitched With Love" (B1425.)  There are soooo many fun things packed into this little card.  The pattern paper is from a new set called Laughing Lola (X7170B.)  The sentiment is actually from one of the stamp sets that come with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge...the first CTMH Cricut Cartridge.  And, that buttercup zigzag... is from an Artbooking Cricut Cartridge cut.  Ah...don't let those cuts from the overlays go to waste.  I am working on a project that I will be posting in a week or so...

Anyway, to celebrate the new Fall/Winter Idea Book, I'm doing a give away.  Leave a comment on this or any future post through August 18th and you be entered into a random drawing to receive this wonderful retro stamp.  Place an order on my website by joining in on the online party called Fall Winter Idea Book Party between today and August 18th and I'll send you a special treat along with two entries into the random drawing.  Comment on my Facebook Page during the same dates and I'll also enter you into the drawing.

Come party with me and celebrate the new Close To My Heart Fall Winter Idea Book.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
