People have begun telling me they’re looking for Christmas cards. Apparently Christmas is on everyone’s minds!

Well, I’ve got good news! Why not get an early start on your Christmas cards?! And, not just ordinary Christmas cards- make interactive shaker cards to boot!

They are super cute, and my customers are going wild over them! I must admit- so am I. I’ve got to have them. You’ll think so, too.

Keep in mind, these cards are available in October, only. I will put together a bulk order for these beauts, but in October. Mark your calendars- October 1-31, 2018- order Holiday Sparkle card kit. Do it!!

What’s Up at TEDS?!

It’s time to share some news with you!

Here’s what’s on the schedule this week, and for the remainder of the month. Ready?

First, join me for my first ever virtual techniques class! We’re discussing inking and we’ll be making a simple card using this technique. Later in August, on the 21, well apply our knowledge to a layout, and attempt inking on things other than straight lines (such as a punched border). We’ll also discuss storage ideas and when it’s time to replace your sponge dauber. What is a sponge dauber? Find out at tomorrow’s virtual class!

That’s right, my first virtual class it at 11 am MST tomorrow (Monday, August 6). It’s posted to my techniques group on Facebook, so you’ll have to be active on FB, and request admission to the group itself. Links will be found at the bottom of this post.

Secondly, I have a simple challenge going on my Facebook business page right now! You must love paper crafting, paper crafting challenges and winning free CTMH swag. Available only to North American participants. (Canada and the US of A). For your chance to win some fab CTMH products from me, like my business page, then hunt down the pinned post at the top of the page. Share your finished projects using your scrap papers, embellishments, fibres…whatever you’ve got lying around. September 4, 2018 is the deadline to enter; two winners will be announced on the 5th. Come and play!

Lastly, I have two additional events taking place in September- Hostess Rewards Club in the 8th, and card blitz on the 22. You’re welcome to join both! Both events have been shared in previous posts, but in case you missed it, here’s the important details:

Hostess Rewards Club September 8 from 1-5 pm at the Days Inn Whitecourt. Join me monthly, and create 2-3 double page layouts every month. By the end of the year (May), you’ll have a completed album! The best part? Earn free ctmh products in your hostess month. Each guest will take turns playing hostess. If it sounds like fun, RSVP!

On September 22, from 1-1:45 (same location) set aside time to get a jump start on your greeting cards. Make as many as you can in 45 minutes, but please do not take home any of the supplies. There are 10 cards to choose from and create for yourself. The cutting and stamping is done; you get to color, watercolour fussy cut and assemble! Easy peasy!

So. Which event(S) would you like to attend? Choose one or choose all! Find the links below:

September Card Blitz

Hello friends!

I’m so excited to share September’s card blitz with you! I got them completed this morning- just in enough time for my husband to arrive home with my new dishwasher. Hooking it up has taken the afternoon, so far! Good times!

Did you see the little furry paw in the bottom right corner of my photo? Miss Ava wanted to help me snap a photo of my cards. She’s so helpful 😃

Some of the cards came from my CTMH website (inspo can come from anywhere), so if they look familiar to you, that would be why!

There’s a mix of techniques amongst these cards. There’s some inking, colouring and water colouring, and even some doodling. (The simplest version of doodling- drawing straight lines). So, if you’ve got them, bring your journaling pens and straight edge rulers to my card blitz. The fun starts on September 22, from 1-1:45 pm at the Days Inn. Make as many cards as you can in that period of time.

I’d love for you to join us! This year is going to be amazing- even better than last year (and last year was fantastic!!) Comment on this post if you plan to come; if not, no sweat! I also make card kits for my long distance customers! Everything will be stamped, coloured and water coloured for you. Your job will be to fussy cut images out, glue pieces to the card bases and doodle! Easy peasy. If you’d like one of my kits, all you have to do is comment! PayPal and E-transfer are acceptable methods of payment. I’ll ship anywhere, as long as you’re comfortable paying postage! So, what do you say? Jump on board. We’re missing you!

Try It Out Tuesday Virtual Classroom

Ever experimented with inking? Do you know what it is, or how to do it? If you answered no to any of those questions, consider joining me on August 8 at 1 pm mst on Facebook. I’m hosting my first ever virtual class, and we’re tackling this very simple and stunning technique. We’ll create a couple projects together, then I’ll turn you loose to try it out on your own!

A small order is required, but ONLY if you do not own the tools needed for this particular technique. What would those tools be? Easy!

Sponge daubers. They come in packs of three from CTMH and cost $7.75 for the pack. They also come in a handy value pack of 12, and cost $24.25. View each below.

Regular pack

Value pack

Ink. For the two projects, in particular, that we’re creating, you’ll need CTMH Pewter ink if you don’t currently own it. All ink pads at CTMH are $10.25, and come in a wide range of hues. See this particular ink below.

Pewter Exclusive Ink

What are we creating? Two simple projects: one 4.25×5.5 inch card, and one double page layout. Each project features inking, though the layout will be more inking- intensive. (Meaning there’s much more inked elements in it.)

The theme for each of your projects is up to you, as is the papers you use. However, if you add the Fresh Air paper packet and Documented cardmaking stamp to your order, I’ll give you $5 CTMH cash as a thank you gift!

Documented Card Stamp Set

Of course, you’ll use your own basic tools and embellishments to complete the projects.

Are you in? I hope so! Facebook is where all the fun will be taking place! Follow this link to find the event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1725464440894815/?ti=icl

June CTMH Card Blitz- Full Preview!

Hi!

I’ve got the full preview of June’s card blitz ready to go! I’d love to share them with you!

I think some close ups are in order too, don’t you?

If you’re local to Whitecourt, you are more than welcome to join us! This will be my last card blitz until school resumes in the fall. Then, you’ve got to come back! If you commit and pre-pay for September-November’s card blitzes, you’ll get December’s blitz free! That’s such a great deal!

If you live outside Whitecourt, you’re welcome to purchase a kit, as well. I have long distance customers, too, and I’m all about sharing the love with you. Want a kit? Just message me!

Better yet, if you’re in Fox Creek or the surrounding area, I’m bringing this blitz right to your doorstep! I’ll be hosting June’s card blitz at the community centre on the 16th. Mark your calendars! There’s not much time to reserve your spot! I must have 5 participants in order to do this blitz. Please come!!

June CTMH Card Blitz

How is everyone doing? I’m just over here, prepping for my last card blitz of the year, and a last minute crop. If you’re in the area this Saturday (the 2nd) or June 23, join me!

Here’s what’s up for my card blitz, so far.

I finally used our stamp of the month! I should have used it weeks ago, but there were other things on the go. I’m glad there’s still today and tomorrow left to snag it. So, if you like what you see, order it up! It’s just $6 when you make a $50 order. Saving rocks! This offer ends at 11:59 pm tomorrow evening (MST). (The SOTM cards are the two yellow ones near the end, FYI). There’s just a few cards there 😉 I don’t want to confuse anyone, that wouldn’t be good!

I still have a few more cards to make for this blitz, including some Fathers’ Day cards! And, you know what the greatest news ever is?!

I’ve been invited to share my upcoming card blitz with the community facilitator in Fox Creek! If you’re in the area, stay tuned for the dates. I’d love to have you join us! I’ll need 5 people committed to coming otherwise it won’t happen! Dates will be announced shortly, so stay tuned! (Facebook might be best, just in case I don’t make it back here to share with you).

Where am I on Facebook? Here!

FYI- I have another one in Fox Creek scheduled for this Fall, too. You’ll definitely want to watch for more info on that! It’ll be a lot of fun! And, as always, kits are available to long distance customers. Can’t make it? No sweat! Order a kit to complete on your own, instead!

On a side note, if you’d like to experience your own incredible opportunities, give me a shout. I’d love to help you reach that goal! It’s really easy to do, I promise!

CTMH Dad is Rad

Introducing CTMH Dad is Rad! This kit features card stock in varying shades, a sheet of gold glitter paper, card bases and envelopes, ribbon, those super duper cute bows AND a stamp set! All for $38 CAD. It’s ideal for all the men in your life, whoever fills the role of dad to you. The best part is that when you purchase the kit, you’ll get the coordinating cutting guide free! Free is good. I like free. Don’t you?!

Create all this- and more- using the items from the kit above. Did you notice the papers’ torn edges in the layouts above? Doesn’t it look great? I have to admit, that’s a technique I don’t use often enough, but it packs quite the punch! All our cardstock has a white core, so it adds to the effect. I think it’s the perfect touch for a masculine layout. How would you use the papers in this kit? Tell me, in the comments below! I’d love to know!

This kit is available right now! It went ‘live’ a couple days ago, but you have until June 30, 2018 to snatch it up! It’ll be on my next order. Would you like to add to it? Give me a raised 🤚 if you would!! You can visit my website to order yourself, too. My website is open 24/7, 365 days a year. Order In your pj’s or otherwise, whatever floats your boat 🚣‍♀️. I’m pretty good at answering comments and private messages, too. Just saying 😉

April Card Blitz Creative Projects

I finished April’s card blitz today, and I’m so excited to share it with you!

I realized towards the end that I should throw a couple Mothers Day cards into the mix, since it’s in May! There’s also a mix of birthday, anniversary, wedding, thank you and get well cards.

I’m open for orders right now. If you’d like any one of these cards, or all of them, let me know. They’ll be shipped to you as a kit, along with easy to follow instructions. $25 CAD.

You’re invited to my card blitz on April 29 if you live in the Whitecourt area. It’ll be held at the Days Inn at 2 pm. Bring a friend and get your geek on! In 1.5 hours, make as many cards as you want. There will be a minimal amount of fussy cutting, the rest is already done for you! Scissors are provided, though you should bring your own adhesive. The cost of the blitz is $25.

Will I see you there? I hope so!

You’re the Sweetest CTMH card

It’s a beautiful day, so I took the pups for a walk to school this afternoon.

We are puppy sitting right now, so that’s why you’re seeing a second dog. Introducing Cutie Pie!

After a busy morning, I sat down to put together thank you cards for all the families and businesses that have donated to our upcoming gymnastics silent auction.

I created this card using a mixture of Make Waves, Gimme Some Sugar and Sea Glass cardstock. I coloured the stamp (A Little Bit of Pun) with my shin Han markers and stamped the sentiment using Pansy ink. (I stamped the cupcake in basic black ink).
