Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter H. This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their H element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy

If you came from Joy's blog ~ StudioWow then you're on the right track!

Today we are featuring the letter H, and for my H elements I have: heart, hat and hexagon.  I started this layout with the hexagon overlay from the CTMH Artbooking cartridge.  Then I found the pictures of my youngest when she turned two years old and she was wearing her favorite hat.  Hat, my second H element!  So playing with the colors from the picture I pulled out the Skylark WOTG kit and came up with my layout,  "MY SUNSHINE".  For the last H element: heart, I used the CTMH stamp set Believe in Yourself Everyday Life.  "  You left an imprint on my heart".  And that she has done!!



Supplies used:
Skylark WOTG - G1072
Triangle Studs - Z1928
Desert Sand Ink - Z2118
CTMH Artbooking - Z1906
Broad Tip Glue Pen - 1512
Believe in Yourself Everyday Life - C1574

Trust In The Lord

Good morning!!

I have a card for you today,  I used the CTMH Art Philosophy and Artbooking cartridge.  Both of these cartridges have so many options to choose from, that when creating a quick scrapbook page or card it comes together so easy.  Who doesn't like easy?? LOL.  Well lets get to the card.

I tried to get the glittery effect of the embossing powder to show up on the picture, hopefully you can get the idea. :-)
 I used the following products:
Cricut® Art Philosophy Collection

Cricut® Artbooking Collection
Liquid Glass Z679
Desert sand stamp pad Z2118
Rangers Perfect Medium
Recollections embossing glitz powder
K&Co Pastels Designer Paper Pad
Ribbon dollar bin at Target

I will be entering the following Challenges:
Seize The Sketch

3 Girl Jam (Spring Anything Goes)
Die Cutting Divas (Tic Tac Toe)

Good afternoon all!!  I hope everyone had great week.  For us the week seen to fly by.  My daughters soccer team is going to watch a game tonight at The University of California Riverside.  UCR VS. USC (University of Southern California) which should be a great game. 
So before we head out the door I wanted to post a quick video about my favorite cart, CTMH Artbooking.  My first love is scrapbooking and this is the perfect cart for that.  It has such a great variety of overlays, borders, photo mats and more photo mats, great titles and Icons that you can use for just about every occasion.  This cart is definitely my go to cart when I put a layout together.

If you are interesting in purchasing the CTMH Artbooking cartridge , please check out my CTMH page.

As always thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!1

All Star

Good afternoon all,  I have a card to share with you today that I created using the CTMH Artbooking cartridge and the basketball cartridge.

My girls finished up their basketball season a few months ago , so I put this card together for the coach to say Thank You for all the time he and his family put in with the kids.

The ALL STAR and the basketball (shape) cuts are from the Artbooking cart.

I added the faux stitching to give it a little pop, no bling or glitter was added :-( ,,, lol

Check out this great offer from Close To My Heart,  the Artbooking cartridge is a wonderful scrapbooking cart.  And it can be yours for FREE!!!
