Another Purse

Okay, so I don't know what my obsession is with these purse templates, but when I saw this I had to try it out. I think I got it from here but could be wrong because she has so many and I LOOKED at soooo many! This is not made using CTMH paper. (I didn't want to experiment with a new project with any of my good paper!) The inside can be used to hold 10-12 3x3 cards. What a cool gift idea for Mom, Grandma, Teacher...etc. (Christmas is coming) Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Todays News

Well, I successfully finished another day of school bus drivers training. I take my driving test on Friday morning and am a little anxious. I've surprised myself with how much I'm looking forward to starting next week.
Today's not over yet...I am off to the Crawford County Fair to work in the Marcie's Homemade Ice Cream stand. It should be fun! The weather doesn't look that good for the whole week, but today should be nice. I have to be there tomorrow and Friday night too, so we'll hope for good weather!
I'm totally psyched to do a CTMH Gathering for one of my best friends, Peggy, in Pittsburgh this Sunday. I hope all my Pgh buddies will come and have some fun with us. I like to visit the burgh every once in a while, but after driving down 279 & Rt. 51 once - I'm ready to come home to the country!!!
I'm off to the fair!!

Just playing....

My bestest friend Karie came over this past weekend and I got to spend time
just hangin and makin a cool project. I came across this basket a couple of
times when looking at "basket" ideas. The structure was not ours, but we had
blast making them. I'm only sorry I didn't take a picture of Karies.

Playing with my new stamp set....

I got this new stamp set - new to me, not CTMH - and couldn't wait to play with it. It is soo pretty. I found this stand up card idea online and thought it was cool, so I tried it out. Stamp camp idea...hmmm. Tell me what you think!

Girlie Purse

This purse opens on both sides, to give the option of holding cards...I just wanted to experiment with making it first. It was fun, but I think I'll do another type of handle next time. I love the stamp set with the Animal Cookie paper though. I makes me feel "groovy"!

Fun Card!

I found the template for this tri-shutter card and had to try it out! I'm thinking it would be fun to do for one of the stamp camps. It was much easier than I thought and making it was a lot of fun. Oh..Rich gave me the idea for the surf board!

Open House Artwork

Some stuff from the Open House displays. The little book is made with "Back Country" papers. I love to experiment with chipboard! This is the perfect size mini album to carry in your purse.
The layout is using the Magic Moments Scrapbook Kit. What an awesome kit! You get so much for the money - enough layout pages and stickease to do an album for the year. The best part is you can make it simple or add other embellishments to
take it up a notch. That is the beauty of scraping with CTMH. It truly is for those who want to get it done without fuss - to those who want to "do it up"! Email me today and ask about the flexibility of Level 1 - 3 and all the amazing things you never thought you could do with them!

My fave new stamp set!

The new Idea Book is here!! There are many
cool and creative ideas in this book! I love
this new set because I can see myself using
it for a lot of designs: cards - friendship, birthday,
new baby...and more. And not just cards,
but awesome page layouts too - especially those heritage albums! The new catalog will be open for orders
by 9/1, so book your gathering NOW!

Awesome Open House

I just had my Open House this past weekend, and the support of all of my friends was quite overwhelming. This is the cute card everyone got to make -n- take.
