SOO Sweet!

My little girls love to play with paper (wonder why!! :) Anyway, I went through a TON of my older non-CTMH paper (I know...it kinda makes me sound like a paper snob...but I REALLY like the CTMH paper!) and I gave a huge tote to my girls to create with. Jen...my 7 year old was totally excited. She went off to her desk with a stack of paper and a glue stick and a while later out she came with this very sweet creation! I LOVED it....she asked me how to make grass you can feel and so I helped her with the grass...I started it she finished it. The 'ripped' clouds are totally her own deal. Her future hubby maybe in BIG trouble...she asked me a while back how old she had to be to sell CTMH! :) Good Job Jen....(I told her I was gonna post her work...she is way excited!) ....don't you just love the sparkly foam bling across the bottom! Too cute!

Back Country....July WSOTG

Layout 1: I LOVE the layout on the cover of the Summer Catalog...So...I MADE it! (minus the picture :)......I was so excited I just happened to have the Building Block Alphabet and the Hodge Podge Alphabet. I printed the 'moment by moment' on the computer using CTMH's 'Tall Pen' Expressive Font CD Volume 1. And the New Backwoods Stamp set....page 18. YAY!! I created the second page to match using more trees from the Backwoods Stamp set and a few stickers from the Back Country Stickease.... I seriously need to get pictures on these pages.....
Layout 2: I also really liked the way the New Flip Flaps (another new fav!) were used on the 'Peurto Rico' Layout (page 18) So I recreated the page for our family reunion pictures. On the second page I used the Essential Alphabet to stamp 'Times' bleeding the colors and the Hodge Podge Alphabet to stamp 'Good'! With a few stickease...I have more embelishments to use but need to get my pictures on first :)...
I also have a few more layouts to finish up ... so I didn't post them....(makes 4 - 2 page layouts...that is 8 pages....PLUS scraps for more layouts, cards or other projects!!!)

The Kit includes:
  • Back Country level II paper $12.95
  • Back Country Stickease $4.95
  • Demensional Elements-Adventure $4.50
  • Flip Flaps $3.95
  • Misc. Accessories $2.50
  • Total with Tax/S&H: $32.87

Animal Cookies...June WSOTG

I love this layout offered by CTMH. Those who did not order the WSOTG made this page. It really is 2 cute....
AND those who ordered "my" kit can make this page with scraps and white daisy cardstock out of their stash!

Layout 1: "Wild Thing You Make My Heart Sing!" I made this layout from the Imagine Book (CTMH) page 108 titled the "Grand Finale"....I thought it turned out pretty cute. All stickease and buttons (some buttons are the Dimensional Elements Boarders) Layout 2: I had used all my card stock and had tons of B&T duo's left over....this is what I came up with using my scraps. The gals at club put "kids" instead of "boys" at the title....I used my "Solo" Stamp Sets for the whole title :) YAY! I used the "Wild & Crazy" stamp from the "It's A Zoo" stamp set in random order on strips of Desert Sand cardstock.
Layout 3: "It's A Zoo Around Here".....I love the animals and the buttons and the little film strip from the Dimensional Elements Boarders.....also added some sassy strands :) Layout 4: This was easy and fast....well all except the circles...WOW...so cute...kinda a pain...the technique is from the Imagine Book (CTMH) page 61 titled "Fiesta" using a metal rimmed tag and a dry embossing tool pops out the circle...then sanded the top color layer off....turned out cute though...Added the Clouds and Kites from the "Childhood" stamp set, flowers and "wonder" from the stickease, some White Daisy ric rack sponged with Clover Meadow Green ink for the flower stems...wala! Can't wait to get my pictures on these pages!

(PS....Ladies...I really am working on the Recipe sheets....hopefully tomorrow...provided the interruptions!)
Thanks for your patience :)
