CTMH Workshops on the Go: Bliss

Love is in the air! Make it last forever by creating this beautiful layout to preserve your love-filled photos and thoughts. The Bliss Workshops on the Go (G1020) workshop uses the Bliss Level 2 paper packet, the exclusive My Acrylix® Bliss Workshop stamp set, and Irresistibles die-cuts for creative embellishing.

I love the cards we created for this workshop...ever go shopping for a wedding card...WHEW, those are expensive! These cards are elegant, romantic...and best of all, inexpensive! Make yourself a few for those upcoming Spring/Summer weddings!

Hosting a Bridal Shower or need a gift idea? Our My Creations Journal is great for the Bride to use as her wedding planner notebook; or you can use it to capture advice, recipes, and well-wishes from guests at her Bridal Shower...or as the Guest Book at the Wedding! So many versatile uses, and the ability to personalize the front cover...Priceless!

CTMH Miracle All Sorts Mini-Album

It's been a while since I've played with our My Creations All Sorts Mini Album (Z1224), and with our NEW Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain ribbon (Z1383) and Miracle Collection, this album is just adorable (if I do say so myself!)

(Please excuse the "brightness" of the pics...I'm also playing with adjusting my photos, and got a little "bright" on this set of pictures!)

Isn't the button adorable on the front cover!?! These are our NEW Canvas Badge Buttons (Z1397) which are adhesive backed and can be stamped directly on! I used our Miracle Workshop stamp set to stamp Blessed on the button, then rolled the edges in the inkpad to give it a little outline color.

Our Kraft Borders (Z1377): so much fun to play with and add that extra little accent to the pages!

A few of our Mocha Opaques Adhesive Gems (Z1333) to add a little "bling"...again of the self-adhesive variety...just love how fast, simple, and easy it is to embellish with Close to My Heart!!
YEAH, the cool Pinwheel stamps that are included in our Miracle Workshops on the Go (G1023)! I've added a Mocha Opaque to the center to keep the edges in and add a little texture!

And the Sweet Leaf Ribbon! Since this album will be "exposed" and handled, I used a lighter to sear the edges of the ribbon to keep it from fraying!

CTMH Workshops on the Go: Miracle

You'll enjoy the soothing colors of our new Miracle collection! The combinations of Bamboo, Crystal Blue, Heavenly Blue and Sweet Leaf complement any photos AND can easily be accented with an additional color to make your layouts POP!

These are pictures from last years Band Banquet where Mandy was recognized as "Most Outstanding Sophomore" and received a band scholarship for extra instrument lessons!!! We are so very proud of her accomplishments!!

The Workshops on the Go: Miracle Collection (G1023) includes the Miracle Level 2 Paper packet, Kraft Color Ready Borders (Z1377), Workshop Guide AND the MUST HAVE Miracle Workshop stampset which includes the stamps to make these adorable pinwheels!

The color ready borders are quickly becoming my newest "tool box" embellishment! They are self-adhesive, can be stamped, inked, and painted, or adhered just as they are! Use them as a template with our Spray Pens to add a fun backdrop or flip them over, remove the adhesive backing and sprinkle glitter and you have a quick "bling" embellishment to add to your project! So versatile and so many different ways they can be used! And with 50 - 12" strips in each package, you'll have plenty to try tons of unique techniques!

I love how the pin wheels can be used on both cards and layouts, providing a great embellishment with dimension and style!
