CTMH Sarita Handmade Card

Are you stuck in the winter doldrums?  The Close To My Heart Sarita paper packet (X7171B) is the perfect combination of bright and cheery colors to lift your spirits.  That is why I saved it for all of my January Workshops.  The combination of Lagoon, Gypsy and Cotton Candy along with the terrific patterns is just what we need to chase the cold.  This is another card in a series of 6 completed for my Crafting In The Country workshop.

This card has just a little strip of Sarita but it works perfectly with stamp.  The Hot Air Balloon and sentiment are from a set called “Lifting Spirits” and was in the Holiday Gift Guide.  In addition to featuring Sarita this month, I also worked with a great deal of Baker’s Twine.  I love the CTMH Baker’s Twine.  It is more substantial that many of the other brands out there so it added a strong accent to your projects.  It comes in a variety of coordinating colors and is a bargain for $4.95.  By the way….  how do you like the angled embossed mat behind the balloon?  The CTMH Spring Summer Idea Book is set to be released on February 1st.  Hint, Hint, Hint… 
Now that the flurry of Holiday activity is over, I find that it is fun to get back on track by creating something special.  CTMH has all the perfect supplies you need to make something special.  Stop by my website if you would like to check out more of the goodies.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

CTMH Sarita

Well, I’ve been having some problems with my blog, so if this looks a tad different than my other posts please know that I am trying to get it fixed. 

I’ve been working on my January Workshops recently.  Several of the classes are featuring the paper packet called Sarita (X7171B.)  This particular card also features one of my “go to” stamp sets called “The Best Things” (C1503.)  It is one of those hidden gems that is great for both card making and scrapbooking.  It is Cricut compatible which means that even though it might not be featured in a recent Idea Book, it is still available.

It is easy to forget that these stamp sets are available.  To see which others are still out there, stop by my website and check them out.  I hope this method for posting works.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

CTMH Happy New Year

Well, I hope everyone had a Wonderful Holiday Season.  I've not been around recently, not by choice, but due to computer issues.   So, please stick with me as try to get used to posting with a tablet.

I've spent some time playing with the CTMH paper packet called Sarita (X7171B.). It is bright, fun and usable for both card making and scrapbooking.  One of the great thing that CTMH started in the current Idea Book is to feature stamp sets from Jeanette Lynton's archive.  Jeanette is the founder of CTMH and has dedicated her life to to her family and this industry.  The feature includes stamps that were published in some of her first catalogues.

I am to not letting this opportunity pass, so I am using a really cute stamp called Teddy Bear Birthday (A1143) for one of my January Classes.
This is a square card for fun.  If you look closely that is an overlay I cut using the Artbooking Cricut cartridge.  I sponged a piece of Colonial White with Gypsy, Cotton Candy and Lagoon to give the card some visual texture.

I love the stamps from Jeanette's archive and, of course, I love the Artbooking cartridge.  Visit my website to get yours. For Now, Happy Crafting!
