Birthday Balloons and Presents

Since these two stickers were so large I kept my embellishments to a minimum.
I layered a few patterns of 
Confetti Wishes paper and cardstock as the base.
The sentiment from
Joyful Birthday is stamped in
Thistle and Pacifica.

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll finish up the Baker's Dozen of Confetti Wishes tomorrow.

On This Day

Here's the second layout I created 
celebrating the wedding that DH was in this Spring.
were perfect for this event.
I have to admit I was quite tickled when I saw that the bridesmaids were
wearing Sorbet (CTMH coral)!
If you have any summer beach photos you need to scrap this is your go to paper.
And it is going away at the end of August.
I love the soft colors in this paper.
If you look closely on the top left you can see the
July Stamp of the Month,
For the flowers, I cut them in various sizes, 1/4 inch smaller each time.
I inked the edge ins Sorbet before assembling.
How fun to reminisce about this day.
That's why we do memory keeping, isn't it?

Christmas in July

How about a little "Christmas in July"?
I wanted to show you some simple cards that I created using the 
"Be Jolly".
The "Be Jolly" stamp set is one of my most favorite Christmas sets.
The sentiments are the perfect size for cards, tags, and journaling spots.
This set was reserved for our special hostesses only BUT
this month you can get it for only $5 with
a qualifying order.
Just order $25, or more, of stamp sets
and you will be prompted to add one of our Hostess Sets for $5
or the Stamp of the Month for FREE.
That's the "Jump on it in July" special promotion.
Here's  another simple card I created with the same supplies.
Oh, and I had to add some Sparkle Flourishes too!

PS, this is my favorite Cut Above Card Kit and it retires at the end of August.
Guess I love all the Kraft (even the envies are Kraft), the simplicity, and how easily you can 
change up the design of this kit.
You can find it on my website HERE.

Rose Blossom Love

Look at this beautiful gift I received
from my Rose Blossom Secret Sister.
I just love this nesting box set which
covered with the beautiful Blossom Papers
and Complements.
It has a place of honor in my studio.
I just love all the details and the gorgeous design!
Cathy also included lots of my favorite sugar-free chocolates in the gift as well!
It is such a thrill to meet the people you get to "know online" and admire their artwork from afar.
I really think we have the most talented, and sweetest group of CTMH consultants on our team. 
The gift exchange, at the CTMH convention,  was just the icing on top of the cake.
The true treat is meeting the gals in person.
