Thinking of you - AHSC 322

Hello! Today I have a card I made for my workshop using one of the sketches from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge which I am on the design team for. I use these sketches for a lot of my workshop cards. 

This months workshop featured the True Love paper pack and I just loved the colours in this one, the Sapphire, Eggplant and New England Ivy really spoke to me in this one and softened by the Sugarplum and Ballerina, it was so fun to play with.

Summer Days - Heart 2 Heart challenge

Hello and Happy Monday! Summer is finally here and I made the most of it this weekend enjoying the pool with my girls today. The day started with some scrapbooking and I was going to make a card for todays challenge and I said nope, not today...no cards today I am going to do a layout to get some of these (easily over 5,000) pictures I have into my albums. So I started working away on a layout of 2 of my girls and our dear family friends when we spent the day at a splash pad and had a McDonalds picnic....it was a great day. We have advanced from the splash pads to the pools and oddly we were at the pool this weekend with the same friends. it is great watching our kids grow up together. 

Now onto the Heart 2 Heart challenge....this weeks theme is "You are my Sunshine" so anything to do with sun and sunshine! And what is more sunny than a bright summer day? There are two stamped suns but the Lemon ink did not show up well in the picture but looks awesome on the layout. One is directly next to the word summer and the other is on the right hand page at the top corner of the pictures. 




It was a lot of fun creating this layout today and getting some pictures in my albums and out of boxes!

Paper 
- Craft On
- White Daisy card stock

Ink:

Love you! - H2H Challenges

Hello! Happy Monday to you! I am back with an entry for my design team duties (which I sadly and embarrassingly admit to slacking on the last few weeks) but I am back and committed as ever. This card is for the Heart to Heart challenges design team and the them for this week is Craft on. CTMH does have a paper collection called Craft On but you do not need to use it for this challenge, your entry can be anything about the crafts you enjoy doing, it could be documenting you enjoying your crafts, it could be the paper collection or stamp sets, just as long as it is crafty!

I have a card today featuring the paper from our Craft On paper pack and the Craft On card making set. I love this set specifically the pinwheel. I could not wait to get my hands on it and play with it. 




I stamped the inside with the cute sentiment that says you mean the whirl to me. I love that! 




Thanks for stopping by and visiting today, I welcome any ad all feedback on my work. We would love to have you join us by clicking here

Until next time....happy crafting!

Paper:
- Peach, Mink, Mint, Sapphire, Fern and White Daisy card stock

Cricut:
- Flower Market

Embellishments:
- Whisper Twine

Embossing:
- Subway Tile Embossing Folder (my new fave, I love this thing!)

Well there it is! My take on the Geometric challenge. I would love to see what you come up with by joining us at H2H challenges by clicking here!

It's Your Day to Sparkle - June 2019 SOTM Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the June Stamp of the Month blog hop. If you are new to blog hops and not sure what to do, just sit back and hop from blog to blog following the links of CTMH consultants in each of the blog posts. We get together once a month on the first of the month to showcase some serious creativity using the featured Stamp of the Month. If you are starting here at my blog, welcome. If you came here from Haley Dyer, you are in the right place. 




This months stamp of the month is great for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, or anything you would celebrate. I chose to do a birthday card as I do not have any weddings coming up any time soon. I stamped the cake in Black Memento ink and used Sugarplum, Eggplant and New England Ivy and coloured in the image using a water blending pen to give it softness and a water coloured affect. 



The picture below features the stamping I did on the inside of the card. 




Products Used:

Paper:
- True Love
- New England Ivy, Sage, and White Daisy card stock

Ink:
- Sugarplum, Eggplant, and New England Ivy
- Black Memento

Embellishments:
- Sugarplum Glitter Sparkles

Thin Cuts:
- Scalloped Border

Thanks for stopping in and checking out my project. Please feel free to leave feedback as you travel along the hop, we all welcome feedback. If anything inspires you so much that you want to order the products, please reach out to your CTMH Independent Consultant. If you do not have one and reside in Canada I would be happy to assist you with any questions or product orders. If you are in the United States, New Zealand or Australia, I would be happy to find a consultant in your local area who can assist you. And now to your next stop along the hop and that is with the talented Michelle Loncar.

Until next time, happy crafting!
