Calendar Club Part 1

2017 will be here before we know it!

How would you like to create a fantastic calendar to use for the year?  With this calendar you will be creating a secondary page that will go in to a scrapbook album.  At the end of the year, you take the pages from the calendar and add them to the album.  VOILA!  You have a year in review album.

Start the year with this beautiful page featuring the "Colour of the Year" sea glass in glitter.

February is just gorgeous with the gold glitter and the hearts.

Look at these cute flowers for March!  Add in some gold glitter and some bows and it is just lovely!

You too can make this calendar.  There are a couple options in which you can participate.
  1. Join the monthly club and put together one month at a time, $15 per month.
  2. Get three months at a time to put together for $45.
Not local?  That is ok, you too can get this you would just cover the shipping costs.  For this option it is best to do the second option or even have 4 months shipped at one time.

Happy 2017 everyone!!

Jeepers Creepers

September 1st marked the beginning of the new Holiday Expressions book and in that book came this fantastic Halloween themed paper called Jeepers Creepers.  I sat down and chopped this paper pack up and came up with (8) two page 12 x 12 layouts.

Jeepers Creepers Workshop

This workshop makes it so that you can showcase all those Halloween photo's that you take of the kids!  The great thing about a few of the layouts, you can use them as neutral pages for birthday parties but just embellishing them a little different.

Products used to create these layouts

Let's go trick or treating!

 I really love the monster paper!  I added some puffy eyes to the little monster for some dimension.

This is a layout that could be used for a birthday party just by changing up the embellishments.

 I love this paper with the eyes!

 Change up the title on this one and you can use it for many other things!

 I was thinking of a pumpkin patch when I was making this layout, but really it could be used for many things by changing a few elements.

 Double trouble anyone?

Love the little inch worm with the word bubble!

If you are interested in this workshop please see the purchasing options below.  This workshop was made with product from the Holiday Expressions book and will only be available from September 1st to December 31st.
1) Place an order on my CTMH website and get the PDF files free. (Canadian orders only)

Gatefold Mini Album 2

This album I was really excited to create!  I got the idea from a Youtube tutorial and added my own touch to it with different flap pages.  I created it as a gift to give my masseuse for Christmas and because she went to Europe over the summer, I was finally able to use paper that I'd been hoarding for about 6 years.  It is so freeing to be able to create something for someone and to use product that you've been waiting and holding on to!

I love the metal corners and the clasp to close the book.  Each side has 3 pocket pages and then they have flap pages as well.  I left all embellishments out of this book because I wanted the recipient to be able to add as much of her European memories to this book on her own.

Gatefold Mini Album

So it has been WAY too long since I've posted in here.  I can't believe that I've been away this long.  I've been creating and I've been busy.  I've been having fun and making memories!

So here is one of the gatefold mini albums that I've created as of late.  This one was commissioned for a co-worker as a Christmas gift for her mom.  I brought in one that I had created as a Christmas gift for my masseuse and she fell in love with it.  Granted it left me with only 20 days to make it ... LOL ... but it was fun to make!

This album has 3 pocket pages on each side and each page has flip pages.  Under each flip page is a pocket to hold pictures and journaling.  I added just a few embellishments to give an idea of what can be added by the recipient.  I wanted her to be able to add her own touches to the album.

This album is pretty full as it stands, but there is still so much that can be added to make it a show piece.  I really hope that she likes it!

Jackson - Hearts of the West Blog Hop

Welcome to the Hearts of the West team blog hop!

If this is your first time joining us you will love it. It features Close To My Hearts Consultants from all over Canada showing you their projects. The Hearts of the West team was founded by Nancy Klein.

This months challenge is Jackson paper pack, brought to you by the new Seasonal Expressions 2, hand picked from Nancy Klein.

If you came from Donna's blog then you're in the right place, this is a go around blog hop so you can start anywhere! Just in case, the full list will be at the bottom. So, as always, grab your coffee, tea, water, relax, and hop around the team with us.

I really love this paper pack and am sad to see it being retired after the month of August.  I took the paper and looked at how I could create some new fun cards with it.

 I tried to keep them simple as I decided to make these a card kit that will be for sale on my blog and on my facebook page.  I second generation the diamonds with Barn Red ink on the one card and did second generation and regular stamping with Glacier ink on the other.  To add just a bit more fun, I added the ribbon!  I popped up the "Friends Forever" image with 3D Foam to give a little dimension.

Products used:
C1533 Fabulous You
Z2104 Barn Red Ink
Z2641 Glacier Ink
X7195B Jackson Paper Pack
Colonial White Cards/Envelops

This card kit can be purchase for $12.  Everything will come pre-cut and pre-stamped for you.  This kit has 10 cards, five of each design.  Please email me at if you are interested in purchasing one of these kits.
