Heart Of Winter

In the Heart of Winter lies the Promise of Spring!

Promise of Spring is the name of this beautiful stamp set. These 4 pages were made as part of the Heart of Winter special through CTMH in January.

The colors on these pages are Smokey Plum, Olive, Bamboo and Colonial White.

There are all kinds of techniques used here, including sanding (to show our beautiful white core on our cardstock), distressing, inking and sponging. Plus there are several embellishments included as well.

I just love these pages, I think they are so beautiful!!

And here is the other set of pages.

And here are a couple closeups of the artwork and embellishements.

All My Love

Here is a cute little 4" x 4" card using the All My Love set. The colors are Hollyhock, Baby Pink and Colonial White. The ribbon is also Baby Pink.

Bargello Technique

Just wanted to also mention that you can click on all the images to get a larger picture!

This 6" x 6" page was also done for a technique swap. I chose to do the Bargello technique. It is actually an old old technique used in quilting and has now been adapted to cardmaking.

The paper is from CTMH's Sonata paper packet and the stamps are from the Floral Delights set. The colors are Buttercup, Chocolate, Hollyhock, Colonial White and there is some Lilac Mist in the papers.

I also used the new Natural Twill found in our Ribbon Rounds White Daisy Collection along with the Bigger Brads in Chocolate and Chocolate Organdy Ribbon.

Rustic Flowers 9x9 Page

I just love how this page turned out! Okay maybe it is the colors that I love too =)

The stamp set used is Rustic Flowers. Colors are Sweet Leaf, Blush, Crystal Blue and Colonial White. The brads are from the Colonial White My Accents and the ribbon is from the Colonial White Collection Designer Ribbons (in this case, though the ribbon is actually Blush).

The edges of the three Colonial White strips on the top left are also edged in Crystal Blue.

Made this 9" x 9" page for a gathering I had recently. It went over great! I love the colors and how bright and cheery they are!

Colors are Topiary, Dutch Blue, Watermelon and White Daisy. The stamp set used is called "It's A Party!". I used White Daisy My Accents for the brads and used the White Daisy Sassy Strands for the strings of the balloons. (The balloons are from the Birthday Bash set.) And I used White Daisy ink to stamp the "Celebrate" on the left side of the page. I also used CTMH's stapler and the pink staples for the ribbon on the tags.

Graduation Pages

Hello again!

I wanted to share the pages I made for my younger Sister's graduation. She graduated from Pharmacy school and is now a licensed Pharmacist! These pages came from CTMH's My Reflections Collection Scrapbook Kits. I used their Graduation kit and the colors are Black, Bamboo and Colonial White. The smaller black squares also have Acrylic Squares with Graduation symbols in them (it may be hard to see in the pictures). Now I just have to pick some of the many pictures I took that day to put on her pages!
