CTMH Bashful Together

How pretty is Pebble and Bashful together? I added some navy 8.5×11 cardstock I had in my stash (the last sheet I’d been hoarding) for an extra splash of colour. It’s very elegant, isn’t it?

The title was cut using my Cricut, a photo mat was embossed using the CTMH rose embossing folder and I finished off with pink extra thick twine and embellishments from the Stronger Together and Happy Moments (if I remember correctly!) Complements. The Cricut die cut is my absolute favourite. I typically type my titles, so I really liked that the image was already made for me. I like even more that it’s not my typical linear style, either. That small change is refreshing to me.

(And, the only reason I type them is because there’s no image for what I am looking for! I’m getting to the point where I’m going to start purchasing the ones I want.) 😊

CTMH Art Philosophy

I have one more Halloween layout to share. I try to get into the festive spirit and dress up along with my kids. Sometimes what I envision doesn’t work out (like this year), and other times, my costume remains undecided until the last minute.

I came up with the smartie pants idea as kids were walking up to my door. I inhaled a party size box of smarties and pinned them to my pants. If I’d had my glasses as this point, I’d have taped the bridge too. I didn’t get them until later, though.

This is another layout that parted ways with CTMH. Slightly. The cardstocks are both CTMH, but the patterned paper came from another company. SU, I think? I’m not certain anymore.

I typically always cut my layout titles using CTMH art philosophy (Cricut). The glasses are another Cricut cut.

Using CTMH Zip Strips

I’m sure I’ve covered this topic before, but a refresher never hurts.

Need a way to use up that stash of zip strips? Arrange them in a pattern on your page then place your photos next to them. Layer your title and embellishments overtop, and you’re finished!

CTMH Products are Versatile

I used some of our new cardstock on this layout, and I just realized I should create a project to show you just how versatile it is! If you remember, our card stock now comes in two shades, right in one sheet! One side is slightly darker than the reverse side. Unfortunately here, I did not use both sides of the sheet. I’ve made a mental note to do that in the near future.

To highlight the fact my children were shopping for glasses in this layout, I cut a couple glasses out using my Cricut. I filled in the lens portion of the glasses with my Liquid Glass, and added some Bitty Sparkles for a bit of bling. The bottom portion of the layout was matted with Whisper card stock. I cut the title from Poppy cardstock and adhered using liquid glass. (Our liquid glass is very versatile, too!) The hearts are puffy stickers that retired long ago.

Speaking of retiring products, there’s just over one month left to enjoy the goodies in our current Holiday Expressions catalog. Come January, a new Holiday Expressions will grace us with its presence. Head over to my website in the near future (or now!) to stock up on the current products in this catalog. I’ll be placing my December order within the first couple days of the month. If you’d like to add to it, please let me know! I’m looking forward to all the new goodies to drool over in the New Year!

Spa Date

Face masks are the perfect cold day activity to keep the twins occupied. They recently just found another one lying around the house, so we got that done, too.

I created a simple title using CTMH stamp alphas. This set is called Handwritten. The rest of the papers I used are all retired.

CTMH Going Soon

This layout was created using scrap Little Dreamer. I paired it with Eggplant cardstock. All the colours here coordinated beautifully with my hair 🤣

I also used the Little Dreamer stamp set to create the title.

The Little Dreamer suite- Paper Packet, Complements, Gems, stamp set and stamp set + thin cuts combo is being retired. Find these items under the Going Soon tab in Shop on my website. (Click Shop > Product Categories > Going Soon). Find my website here.

Using CTMH Zip Strips

To create this clean and simple layout, all that’s needed is some CTMH zip strips and cardstock. Arrange your design into a grid, and voila! You’re done! The you’re special element has been floating around for quite some time…it finally found its home on this layout.

CTMH Silver & Gold Got Kids? Layout

If you’ve got kids, you know how fast messes happen, and how slowly they’re cleaned up afterwards. Sometimes, our Elf shows up and expresses her disapproval to the twins. They take it pretty hard, but score for Mom! 

With my leftover Silver & Gold patterned paper, I created this festive layout. It isn’t necessarily Christmas (I think I was scrapping October sometime) but since Snowflake made an appearance, I thought Christmas paper was fitting. 

I also had to throw in a dash of the gorgeous Bashful Ink- I love it paired with the pewter and basic black colours! It’s a match made in heaven. Wouldn’t you agree?
