CTMH Cats & Bats Friends Scrapbook Layout

Another layout using the Cats & Bats Collection that is NOT Halloween themed!  The FRIENDS glitter die-cut inspired this additional layout, so I searched our CTMH Pattern Books to find a layout that would complement it!

The base is the origami spider web paper from the Cats & Bats Paper Pack.  I was running down to some final bits of scraps and really wanted more Emerald patterns to work with it, so I grabbed the Chevron Picture My Life cards and cut it into strips.  If you look closely at the hearts you’ll see where I “embellished” the seam!

CTMH Cats & Bats Party Scrapbook Layout

As promised, here’s a layout featuring our Cats & Bats collection that is NOT Halloween-themed!! Since I was showcasing this collection at our annual convention, I wanted to show the versatility of this paper and how it doesn’t have to all be Halloween.  The vibrant colors and fabulous Cats & Bats complements provide more variety than Halloween when you stop and look!!

I used black cardstock as the base to give a frame to the white cardstock background.  The Emerald and Willow papers from the Cats & Bats paper pack, coupled with the fabulous glitter die-cuts from the Cats & Bats Complements, create a vibrant celebration for this layout!

CTMH Sweet Card

Another creation from our CTMH Annual Convention.  This card mixes colors from the Enchantment, Adventure and Whimsy collections!!  With Ruby and New England Ivy cardstock, Cranberry Hearts and Smoothie Squares, you can see that the colors don’t always have to stay in their families…our 40 colors can easily be grouped in tons of color combinations!!

The flower from the Beautiful You Stamp and Thin Cut bundle was stamped using Bashful, Pixie and Raspberry while the leaves were stamped in Mink and Heather. The gold “sweet” sentiment is from the Happy Moments complements.
