Thoughtful Tidings

I love this new Stamp of the Month for February - Thoughtful Tidings #S1202.  The variety of sentiments really get my creative juices flowing.  And this month's stamp set has six images that are compatible with die cut shapes on the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  This stamp set retails for $17.95 during the month of February. You can also purchase this set for the super low price of just $5 with your qualifying purchase of $50.

Typeset Scrapbook Layout

Here is a two page layout I created using the CTMH Typeset Collection. The pattern is Enchantment from the Magic pattern book by Jeanette Lynton, founder of Close To My Heart. I'm anxious to get some prints on these pages. The corrugated shapes are also from CTMH, and add a lot of character to the page.

Have a memorable day,

Technique Hop - Create Your Own Argyle

Welcome to the Technique Hop. If you'd like to see a complete list of artistic participants, click here. If you came from Wendy's blog, you are on the right track.

Wow! it felt good to get back in the studio to create for this month's Technique Hop. I took a longer-than-expected break for the holidays and some remodeling. I must admit when I first looked through the 2011 CTMH Fall/Winter Idea Book, I completely overlooked this Argyle Technique, but as you will see through this hop, there's more than meets the eye. Get creative * think outside the box * argyle isn't just for diamond-shapes anymore.

Ta-Da! Here's my interpretation of Argyle stamping with Tag The Occassion stamp set (B1362). I was inspired by the next holiday, Valentine's Day.  You can hop to Lisa's blog to see more creativity.

I also used Roxy Level 2 paper pack (X7140B) * Bling Assortment (Z1466) * Dark Chocolate Striped Grosgrain ribbon (Z1617). Below is a glimpse into my creative process:

What a MESS!

Arglye with Hearts.
